I'm thankful for kids with imagination and creativity. And for a having a sense of humor when walking into any room they've been playing in.

Day 29: Pajamas All Day Friday

By |November 29th, 2013|Categories: Thankful All Year|

  Ok, we didn't stay in pajamas quite ALL day but most of it was spent lounging around watching movies. I have never had any desire to participate in the bloodbath of Black Friday and there was leftover pecan rolls! Like I'm giving those up to go spend money I don't have on things I

Day 27: On A Country Road

By |November 27th, 2013|Categories: Thankful All Year|

The kids were feeling squirrelly so we took a break from Thanksgiving prep work to take a drive. Sometimes we luck out on drives and the kids take a nap and Kai and I get to talk or just enjoy the drive. It's time to head home and make dinner but it's been a nice

Day 26: Some People.

By |November 26th, 2013|Categories: Thankful All Year|

I met two very different people today. We finally made it over to the library to get our new cards and check out books. They've got a wonderful children's section that our kids could spend hours in every day and not get bored. Shortly after we got there, while Kai took the kids to look

Day 24: Co-Teachers

By |November 24th, 2013|Categories: Thankful All Year|

Today was my first day of teaching in my new calling at church. I'm teaching a class of children who are the same age group as Dex and Veda. (Our ward primary is so big that there are a few classes in their age group so they aren't in my class.) So you'd think that

Day 23: On Our Own, Making Gravy Without You.

By |November 23rd, 2013|Categories: Thankful All Year|

This is our first Thanksgiving on our own so Kai and I sat down to figure out what the plan is. It mostly revolved around what foods are our favorites for Thanksgiving dinner and what traditions we wanted to keep from our families and what ones we want to start. A lot of our favorite

Day 22: You Are Always On My Mind

By |November 22nd, 2013|Categories: Thankful All Year|

Today I was reminded of the importance of being there for others. I had several people send me notes this week to say they were thinking of me, or they're enjoying the blog, or checking in after our plague. These small, quick messages mean the world to me. They usually make my day or at

Day 21: Inspiration.

By |November 21st, 2013|Categories: Thankful All Year|

I couldn't sleep last night. There was so much negativity in my head and in my heart that I could barely be still. So I prayed. I cleaned and did some laundry. I watched tv. I tried to read. I made lists. I wrote letters. I got on Facebook and Instagram. It wasn't until very
