Archive for the ‘24 Days of Thanks’ Category

Ok ok so I know! I have been really bad with posting my Days of Thanks! It just seems like I haven’t even sat down to breath the last few weeks! And unfortunately because of the holiday season I am not sure that is going to change anytime soon!

Day 15

I am thankful that Shane is back home. He was out in the field for about 3 1/2 weeks so it is nice to have him home!

Day 16

I am thankful for being able to take my kids outside! The weather has been beautiful here and I am loving it! Its been right around 78 everyday! I cant ask for more perfect weather!

Day 17

I am thankful for being able to have Turkey Day lunch with my little boy! The preschool classes sang several songs and then we all go to enjoy a wonderful lunch with our kids! It was great!

I am thankful for the ability to coupon! I have really been able to save some money by shopping strategically and with coupons. For example this last week I was able to save $50 on our groceries. I am still learning but I am slowly getting better!

Ok so I haven’t done my “Days of Thanks” posts for the past few days. That’s only because I have been spending the time with my kids. So for both Day 12 & 13 I am thankful for my wonderful kids and being able to spend time with them! I am thankful for remembering to appreciate the time that I do get with them and to not get to overwhelmed with house work and thinking about all the things I should be doing and concentrating on spending time with them!

Hope you all had a great weekend and a wonderful week!

Day 9

I am thankful for my new food saver! I have been debating over getting one of these for several months but I fanially broke down and when to buy one! Only because I had a 20% off coupon for Bed Bath and Beyond! Now I can freeze all my pumpkin and can be sure that it will last until next year. I have never been so excited about getting to use a kitchen appliance! I can’t wait to see how much money I can save us by batch cooking and having meals saved in the freezer,

Day 10

Friends who hand down clothes to my kids! It is really a life saver sometimes! Like today when it was so cold and I have not bought winter clothes cause its been like 80 degrees here until today!

I am thankful for PB&J for dinner. It is great when I ask Landen what he wants for dinner and his response is “Peanut Butter & Jelly please”! Especially when I am just feeling exhausted!

I am thankful for days that Landen goes to school! I love my son but when I really REALLY need to go to the store, it makes it so SO much easier when he is at school! I can get my shopping done in HALF the time! I really need a way to bottle ALL OF his energy! I love him but I am counting the minuets until bedtime! It may be because I have been up with him since 4:30 this morning! I know enjoy this time because I will miss it one day! And I do, I try to enjoy every moment with him, but sometimes for my own sanity I need a break! And today is one of those days! Thankfully tomorrow is a school day! and I will have a whole new prospective when I pick him up tomorrow!

How can you NOT love this face!

Plus when he tells me “Mom you are my best friend!” It makes it all go away!
