Giving Thanks




This Thanksgiving I am truly thankful for the basics. I have seen so much sickness, too much sorrow and too many friends lose their jobs this year. I am simply just thankful to be and to be well. Well in spirit, well in mind and well in soul. I am so very thankful for my friends and family. I am so thankful to have a healthy happy family and a growing little girl. I am thankful that my body is cooperating with the medicine and this year has been basically Crohn's free. I haven't had an episode in one year this month praise the Lord. I am thankful for health insurance and food in our bellies. I am thankful for a car that not only runs but gets me safely home to my family every evening. I am thankful for a husband that provides for me and a baby girl and baby dog that make me laugh so hard my stomach hurts. I am thankful God has blessed us with a new home. Thank you God for your blessings that you continually pour upon me and my family. I am so grateful.I am thankful for the coming holidy I will get to spend with my family and a little much needed time off work. I am thankful. Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful and you were all surrounding by all the ones that you love. :-)


Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful.

Ella and Abby Cadabby






Georgia's Nanna and Papa have two goats...Ella and Abby Cadabby. G named Abby. Shocker. One of them recently had babies and Georgia wanted to name them Mickey and Minnie but they were both boys so she settled for Mickey and Goofy. HA! G gets to see the baby goats often but we wanted C Bear to see them too so we took her up to see them. Happy Sunday!

Before and After

It has been non stop fun around here since the swingset was covered by a tarp in the backyard...Since then we have had lots of playdates and have been outside every evening that we could :-) It is getting colder so we are getting as much use out of it as we can before it gets too cold to play outside. We love our new big back yard...now we just need a swimming pool to go in it :-)
