Things I Am Thankful For
Today I have been reflecting, and thinking about what I am thankful for. Here they are (not in order). I am soooooo thankful for my wonderful husband, he is a good man, Mike provides so well for our family, he truly gives us everything we could ever want or need. I am thankful for my two beautiful boys, it is a joy to be their mom. Tyler and Jack teach me something new everyday. Who couldn't be thankful for the wonderful country that I am blessed to live in? I am grateful I am an American. I have been blessed with wonderful parents, grandparents, and great grandparents. I am thankful for a beautiful home. I am fortunate enough to have my own car. Friends, my own friends, and my children's friends.
Well I could go on all day, indeed I am blessed. Take a minute to think about all your blessings, and the things you have to be thankful for.

Happy Birthday Heather
Tuesday the girls went to dinner to celebrate Mrs. Lewis's Birthday. It was a fantastic night. Thanks for the great time Heather. What beautiful friends you have.

Today is a great day. I finished my two week project of refinishing our door. I think they turned out beautiful. Dad you can be proud, I stripped sanded, stained, and polyed them all by myself. What a messy job.

Last weekend we all went to the park. The boys (Mike Tyler & Jack) played soccer and T-ball.
Mike helped Tyler climb the fence. Jack enjoyed going down the slide all by himself.

This is what a 18 month little boy looks like when you feed him lunch at the park. Food and dirt all over his face. Jack was in his element.

I laughed so hard when I saw this picture. Jack looks like he should be on a poster for starving children.

On Wednesday I helped Joellen with her Christmas cards. I think they turned out so cute. I hope she doesn't mind me posting them. I just finished some wedding announcements for my little brother David. I really enjoy making cards and stuff. I'm thinking about doing it as a side gig....

In respone to Heather Lewis's spectacularly fantastic invitation, I state the following:
Q: Where is your favorite place to people watch? A: The Mills Mall. There's no better place to watch obese girls, covered in tattoos, squished in undersized prostitutesqe tube tops, holding a new born in one hand, and a double scooped ice cream cone in the other. The Mills Mall ... its fantaaaaaastic.
Q: Best place to get a soda? A: Quick Trip. I grap the 44 oz cup, fill it with about 20 oz's of Coke, and 20 oz's of vanilla syrup. And I'm good to go.
Q: Nickname for in laws? A: Big Craig and Lil' Carol.
Q: Celebrity I least resemble? A: Denis Rodman.
Q: If I had to watch hubby make out with another man who would it be? A: Rosie O'Donnell.
Q: What is the worst outfit I ever wore. A: My entire Jr. High and High School wardrobe quailifies. Just check out the photos. I wore hiking boots almost everyday.

Always Watching
I am currently sanding and stripping our front and back doors. It is a lot of work, but will pay off in the long run. I looked down stairs, and I found two little helpers hard at work. I was reminded yet again of how observant kids are. I hope I am being a good example.
