Thankful Thursday

I'm thankful to be back blogging again. Things got a little crazy in my world the past few months but I'm back!

I'm thankful for the Leap Pad. It was the best thing Santa could have brought. 

I'm thankful for chocolate, it's that kind of day.

I'm thankful for new traditions. I enrolled both kids in a gymnastics program. Madison goes on a day when Mason is in school and he goes when both are out. After his class I've been taking
the kids to lunch before going home. They love it! I think Mason looks forward to lunch some days more than the class. He always asks where we are going to eat before we even leave the house.

I'm thankful for bed rails. Madie is in a big girl bed now. ( she started crawling out of her crib before Christmas) She is quite the acrobat. Last night she tried getting out of bed and got stuck. The only thing that kept her from hitting the floor was the rail. Best $20 I've spent in a while!

I'm tankful for Girls Night Out. I'm getting together with a few friends tonight, much needed!

I'm thankful for quiet time. Both kids are quietly napping at the same time. It's a miracle!

A Family Who Walks Together

Saturday was the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition 5K for our area. My family (the ones who could make it) got together to walk for my aunt. My aunt is now on her 6th week of chemo is is doing well. She has had several rough days but that is to be expected. 

I love how in the before picture we are standing close and hugging each other and in the after picture no one is touching :) We all got a little hot and stinky that morning, lol!

My aunt was unable to make it to the walk so she and everyone who couldn't make the early morning hours met us for lunch.

My mom, my uncle and my aunt. 

A few of us that happened to be around during the picture taking.

Ronny was on call Saturday so he wasn't able to make the race. He volunteered to keep the kids for me so I wouldn't have to wake them up early. He took them to get donuts and to the park to play. The kids had so much fun spending time with daddy!

Thankful Thursday

I am thankful for the group of women I am blessed to call friends. First let me say I am extremely close to my family. My mother and my sister are truly my best friends. But, having lived away from home for a few years and not always having family around was probably one of the best things that could have happened to me. I learned about true friendship. The kind of friendships that are like family. I believe people enter your life for a reason. Maybe you are supposed to learn from them, maybe them from you. But, I believe every friend you make was for a reason. I like thinking that too. I look at where I'm at in my life and couldn't imagine being a wife and mother without the support of of my friends. Ladies who just understand. Some days that's all I need is someone to say 'I get it'. I am blessed because I am surrounded by a group of women who I am continuously learning from, growing from, encouraged by and just down right a blast to be around.

I'm thankful that as I was typing the above paragraph my hubby got home from work! Seriously!! It's 136pm here and he just walked through the door. I love days like this!

I'm thankful for the sound of little feet that was running round the kitchen this morning. It really does sound like pitter patter :)

I'm thankful for the cooler weather we have been having. It has been so nice getting the kids outside and watching them play. 

I am thankful for nap time. Both kids are actually sleeping at the same time! Some days it really is the small things :)
