so since thanksgiving week is upon us, i thought i'd list a few things that i'm thankful for at the moment.
1. the carwash
i've never seen a carwash make any kid so happy. besides, chase is a clean car freak, so going through the carwash on a regular basis keeps everybody around here happy.
i love that all of my kids have super sweet friends. i love that chase and i are friends with the parents. i love that we all feel completely comfortable dropping a kid or two off at a friend's house/toting kids too and fro (even on short notice), and it's perfectly acceptable!
3. a pumpkin carving daddy
he was a superhero around here when he was able to carve out the vampire that the little people requested. i'm still not sure it looked like a vampire, but i didn't have to do it, so.....it was the most fabulous vampire ever!
4. safety from enemy aircraft
i thought we were playing golf. but, i soon learned that we were being attacked by
5. that i don't have to try to get a christmas card picture except once a year.
is it really that hard to get everybody to smile? or even to look in the direction of the camera? i mean goodness gracious. chase said i just needed to send out a pic of the two of us and say, "merry christmas! sorry....we tried." i might have to. geez. you are super excited to get our card now, aren't you?
i love celebrating and appreciating our veterans. the little people got into it this year because they had a veterans program at their school. i have a recent fascination with WWII, and there were two WWII veterans there. i spoke to one who was on the USS Hope. i had to come home and google it to learn that it was a floating hospital, but it was exciting nonetheless. go usa!
7. my boys
i absolutely do not understand how their brains work. i don't understand why wrestling is the only way to solve a dispute. i don't understand why it's so difficult to tell that your underwear is on backwards. i don't know why ninjas are so awesome. i don't know why it's impossible to not pee on the floor, but i wouldn't trade in a single one of them.
not even the big one.
hope you all have a great thanksgiving week!
