Thankful Thursday (A Day Early)

I have heard from a few people (mostly family) that I have not posted lately. I HAVE been busy but have to admit I've met a new friend in "Facebook." It is so easy to post pictures and little comments here and there but I will try to be better at blogging than what I have been.

I'm posting right now because who knows what tomorrow brings. So here goes...

1. I am thankful it is Christmas. I love this time of, traditions, & introducing Kaityn Mae to Baby Jesus. She will go over to our manger scene and say, "Baby." I love it.

2. I am so thankful that when we first had kids I felt like we needed to start "traditions". Next weekend we will do our family "tradition" and watch a movie, sleep in the living room & then open presents and read the Christmas story the next morning. It will be our family Christmas before the Christmas week begins.

3. I am thankful that we are having Chris's side of the family here on Christmas Eve...Lots of people!!

4. I am thankful for movie night Tuesday night with Michael and Candace.

5. I am also thankful that our kids are able to watch movies now that Mommy & Daddy like as well.

6. I am thankful that everytime we pass a house with lights Cooper yells, "Christmas lights" like he has never seen them before.

7. I am thankful that the kids are learning something...or maybe not. Cooper was holding a book today and was telling me it was the story of "David and had a colorful coat and his brothers threw him into water with a whale." We might have to clarify stories tomorrow.

8. I am thankful for my husband who shows me and tells me everyday that he loves me. I love it when he kisses me and the kids say, "OOOOOOOOOO gross" but then look to see if we kiss again.

9. I am thankful for my new niece or nephew coming in June...Did I tell you I was going to be an Aunt.

10. I am thankful for this season where I am reminded of God's gift for me...His Son and how He loves me so much more than I can imagine. Looking back at this year He has blessed us so much and even at times when I wonder where He was I can see His hand and how He used everything for His glory.

Hope you have a Thankful Thursday!!!!!!!

Yep, we can't forget dad reads the blogs everyday and hasn't had anything to read in a long time. That's the only reason I posted! :) We've got to get him on facebook. ;) Thanks Keli, it was great. You are such a blessing to all of us!
