Thankful Thursday

Each day offers us the gift of being a special occasion if we can simply learn
that as well as giving, it is blessed to receive with grace and a grateful heart.
~Sarah Ban Breathnach


~Big brothers who play ring around the rosie over and over with their sister just because it makes her giggle.

~Celebrating 97 years with my grandmother.

~Sunny fall days that Alayna and I soaked up at the park. Swinging, sliding, stomping on crunchy leaves...

~Sweet kindergarten neighbors who come and read to Alayna.

~Our insurance is covering Alayna's Sure Steps at 100%! Woot, Woot (they are over $1000) Can you see me doing my happy dance?

~Jason's new route gets him home by 5:30 everyday! Blessings, blessings, blessings! (I know that in a few weeks his workload will triple and he will probably be out late so I am truly enjoying every minute we have with him in the evenings).

As Thanksgiving gets closer I hope you are contemplating what you are truly grateful for today, this week, this month or even this year...there has to be at least one, what is it?

I will leave you with a video of our silly girl after she got up from her nap yesterday.

Love your thankful list....but I really love the video. I am such a sucker for seeing our long distance friends in motion. It is like seeing them in a whole new light. That video reminds me almost exactly of the "silly girl" video of Ella that I posted the other day. I love our silly girls!!

What a great list of things to be thankful for! And love that sweet little laugh. Alayna, could you please teach Leo how to kiss like that??? His method of sticking his tongue out and letting the drool roll off is much less appealing :)
