Day 100: Celebrate.

By |February 8th, 2014|Categories: Thankful All Year|

We were able to come back and get together with our family this weekend and it was great to see everyone. I love how we can just hang out and talk and the kids run around and play and it's just this beautiful chaotic mess. How lucky for me that my 100th Thankful post coincides

Day 99: Who Is Your Role Model?

By |February 7th, 2014|Categories: Thankful All Year|

I came across someone's post about their daughter wanting to be like a pop star and they talked about how happy they were that they could share the same role model. I can't remember which one but, I admit, I thought snarkishly to myself that I would do everything I could to avoid my kids

Day 98: Because I Can.

By |February 6th, 2014|Categories: Thankful All Year|

Sometimes it's really fun to be able to throw some treat together from whatever I have in the cupboards. Last night it was this Oatmeal Cream Pie recipe and it turned out really yummy. I was out of cream of tartar so I looked online to find a substitute and found that it's mainly used

Day 97: A Land Beyond Imagination.

By |February 5th, 2014|Categories: Thankful All Year|

I just introduced my children to The Neverending Story. It was ah-mazing. They were riveted for the first half, lost interest for about 20 minutes, and then came back around for the ending. They spent the rest of the afternoon telling me all about "rock gorillas" and "dog dragons" and "baby princess." It was so

Day 96: So Much Better Than Real Toys.

By |February 4th, 2014|Categories: Thankful All Year|

We rarely order anything online so we don't often receive packages. The last two weeks however, we've gotten a package nearly everyday! The kids are loving this because it means they get to play with all the wonderful boxes left over. Today we finally got the rest of the stuff for the school room. My

Day 95: I Need Food, Now.

By |February 3rd, 2014|Categories: Thankful All Year|

We had stuff and things to do today so we didn't go grocery shopping and I didn't have a meal planned. Oops. Good thing I can send a message to my husband and say, "I'm so starving - bring home food." and he said, "Ok, what do you want?" and I said, "I dunno... I'm

Day 94: Ø Sports Balls.

By |February 2nd, 2014|Categories: Thankful All Year|

We aren't big sports ball fans, if you haven't noticed. I enjoy playing a few sports ball games and watching baseball in person. I just can't get into watching sports balls on tv. So Super Bowl Sunday has gone largely unnoticed by our house. Since we don't have regular tv anymore (we watch Netflix) we

Day 93: Bunk Beds!

By |February 1st, 2014|Categories: Thankful All Year|

Dex and Veda are sharing a room. They have since Veda was born and they didn't want to be split up even though we have an extra bedroom. They have officially outgrown their little toddler beds (it's actually been quite a while) and we bit the bullet and bought some bunk beds. I searched for
