Happy Thanksgiving everyone! In the spirit of "an attitude of gratitude", our family made a word cloud of some of the things we are thankful for!
ice cream playing sports the internet
sisters and brother Childrens Hospital
sleepovers napping Daddy's job
music days off of school birthdays
testimonies our dogs being healthy
talents washing machine & dishwasher
macaroni and cheese eternal families
the beach freshly baked rolls football season
children laughing warm blankets imagination
changing seasons car trips an A on a test
the dome and trampoline honey on bread
movies texting eating out allergy medication
friends, friends and friends ...

Samantha is Jay Michael's favorite playmate - everyday stuff becomes something to "play". So sweet.
Rachel loves to climb trees. (My favorite toy when I was a kid was a set of four big trees on our neighbor's land. Great climbing trees.)
More climbing -- Yes, this is Jay Michael. He climbed up there, but yelled - OMA - for me to get him back down. Charlotte takes responsibility for the ladder position.....
Speaking of Charlotte - she gave me a love note. In case you can't read it, it says - I love my Mom and Dad. Then a picture of Dad, Charlotte and Mom in a heart surrounded by more hearts. So sweet.
This is Josephine showing off her treats. She has taken to collecting all coins she finds around the house. She had "collected" about $1.25. While we were at the store, she announced that she wanted to spend her money and she had it with her. She bought three Starburst - family favorite - since they were three for a dollar. Bargain. AND, she shared with everyone. So sweet, too.
How to eat cereal, by Jay Michael - first, you pick out all the marshmallows...
Just a day at our house.

First, place your basket of markers on the stove burner way in the back, so the little fingers cannot reach them (without a stool). Second, turn on the oven to make lunch. Third, use tongs and oven mitts to remove your markers from the bottom of the basket.

I had a great afternoon the other day - I got to be in the first grade again. I was one of the Mom's helping with Charlotte's class Halloween party. We had plenty of treats, games and vampire teeth all around. Six is such a fun age!
Charlotte is standing - second from the right (bright green shirt). Green fangs! To her right is Kamden (grey shirt), her friend from church and now school, too! His family just moved into our school boundaries, and they are in the same class!! Yeah!!
