Jacob is all better

After 5 weeks Jacob is cleared of his wrist brace. He was very excited. He has been so paitence with it. And he wore it very faithfully. His toe will take a little bit longer. His head is healing up nicely. He got that right before turkey days. But he is one tough little boy and very active.

I am grateful for pictures. I just love how they can document what you are doing. I love that you can see them right off your camera. I love that you can share them I love the faces that they show. Sometimes only when a camera comes out. I love blogs that have pictures and I just love pictures. So I am also grateful for my camera. And I am grateful for all the great models that I have to take pictures of.

I am grateful for my house. That I can have some place that my children can come to and feel warm and have saftey from the world. That they can laugh and learn and that family can stay and feel at home. I am thankful to my mom and sister who always help me keep it clean and help when ever needed. Thank you so much. I am thankful that my sister Sarah has helped me paint my house and showed me that it is not to bad to change things up.

I am grateful for games

I am grateful that there are fun games out there to be played. For Jonathan's birthday we played Apples to Apples and we also played for thanksgiving. On thanksgiving we played Buzz word . On a different occassions we have played quelf.

I am grateful for Black Friday

I have to owe this one to my sister Sarah. She is the one that got me in on the Black Fridays. Usually this a day where a lot of things that you want or need will be at a very low price. We have had some crazy stories. This year was even crazier than last year. We love on thursday when the ads come out and we get to look and hope that the item that we want will be at a low price. This year the main store was open at 2 different times. Which in the long run we stayed up all night. But we always have a good time. And we have good children that will now just play. And they usually get up later to. So it all works out. So thanks for all the good employees and for a great sister and brother-in-law to make it all the fun. And special thanks to my cousin Josh for making it even better.

I am grateful for family time

I am grateful that I can be with my family. I am grateful that we can have so much fun together. When we are together we have so much fun. I am so grateful that we can laugh and that we can play games together and be able just to communicate with each other. I had Drew and Dlyan help make gumdrop turkeys. They turned out great. Thanks to all my wonderful family near and far.

I am grateful for food

I am grateful for food. Especially on thanks giving . I love turkey. I love sweet potatoes. Which I made a new way which I love they turned out so good. I love my grandma murray stuffing it is always so good. I love that she knows just exactly how to make it. I love the yummy pies. Hilary made 2 delicious pies. I loved the mashed potatoes and gravey and I do love food. I love how food can be a great comfort. My mom brought some vegetable soup and the moment I tasted it. It transporated me back in time when we would have that soup as a child . What comfort it brings.
