It's a Wrap.


Thanksgiving has come and gone....can you believe it??  I don't know if it's my age or what...but yesterday's turkey + late night Black Friday + cough and lost voice has contributed to me being incredibly exhausted!!!  I've almost been zombie-esque with my little energy today.  

We spent a fabulous afternoon with Joe's side of the family.  Had I have remembered to bring my camera {duh!} I would've been able to show you Marilyn's beautifully decorated table, the kids' DARLING Pottery Barn turkey hats, the yummy spread of food {there was SO much!} and an outside picture of the entire fam {minus Jenny and Will...we missed you guys!} with the lovely weather that we appreciated SO much yesterday.  Forgetting my camera really gets to me!  

Since I am pretty much a day late and a dollar short on doing any such type of 'Thankful' post....here ya go.  Things I am thankful for this holiday season in no particular order:

* My easy-going, go with the flow, FUN LOVING hubs.  He lets our family have SO MUCH fun together.  He allows us to create memories that we are SO grateful for.  Most wives would cringe at the the thought of their husband working full time from home.  Not me.  I feel completely blessed.  We get to see him A LOT.  And that's a good thing :) He 'gets' my weird quirks....and still loves me all the more for them!

* My energetic three kids.  They wear me out during the day, but dang are they cute.  My very favorite time of the day is at night time when we ALL gather in the boys' bed and 'snuggle'.  We talk about our 'favorite things of the day', laugh, someone usually bonks their head from acting silly, we say our prayers, give kisses, and it continuously reminds me of how much I love them.

* Our families that BOTH live close to us.  How lucky are we??   Again...some might cringe at this idea....but not us.  We LOVE seeing both sides of the fam on a regular basis.  Our kids have the BEST grandparents around!!!

* Diet Coke, Diet Pepsi and Diet Dr. Pepper.  Yes, all three.  I'll take what I can get when I'm in a pinch.  Thank you carbonated goodness for keeping me sane.

* Sunny AZ.  Man I love it here.  We are SO lucky to have such NICE weather.  Yes, the summers are brutal...but the rest of the year seems to always make up for it.  While the rest of the country is freezing their nads off, we have our windows open and are playing at the park.  Lucky indeed.

* Grateful for my beliefs.  It keeps me strong and gives me faith.  Not to mention...I get to work with some pretty amazing and talented teenage girls who are such a light in my life.

I could go on.  But I'll spare you the gushiness.  Just feeling incredibly blessed.  And so are my kids right now as I've lost my voice and can barely talk! {Wink!!}
