Giving Thanks

Well tomorrow is Thanksgiving (actually in about 30 minutes). I have had so much fun baking away today. I have made 3 types of fudge, oatmeal cookies with peanut butter chips and white chocolate chips in them, chocolate chip cookies, melting moments, smores brownies, caramel nut chocolate cake, and cheesecake squares. Like i said i have been baking baking baking. The funny things is I am not really a desert eater. In fact I probably wont eat any of these tomorrow but my family will and that is why i made them. =) I made some of this stuff for the guys that work for Darren and took them up there today so don't worry it is not ALL going to just family. =) We go to my moms house in the morning and Darrens moms house in the late afternoon. I love hanging out with all of our family and am so thankful for each and everyone of them. At my mother in laws a lot of close friends come as well so it is always a huge party over there. We always have a good time! I hope everyone enjoys or enjoyed their Thanksgiving! Now i will list some of the thousands of things I am thankful for.

I am thankful for God and the wonderful blessings he has bestowed upon me. Everytime things are looking grim he sends a little miracle our way to let us know we can do it.

I am thankful for my husband. He gives me unconditional love and makes me feel beautiful even when i dont think so myself. He works hard so i can stay home and raise our family and even though he doesnt help with the kids or around the house as much as i would like (partly because i have never asked him to) he is truly trying to learn how. He is a good father and loves are children emensly and i know he would do anything and give anything to make them happy!

I am thankful for my children! They are the most precious gifts i have ever recieved. Children see the world through rose colored glasses and it is so much fun hearing their interpretations of life. I am thankful for their warm smiles, gentle hugs and sweet kisses. Their contagious laughter, beautiful singing and non rythmed dancing makes my heart happy. I also love seeing them play together. When Kayden asks Dalten if he will be her best friend my heart melts with joy. They have even started including Daven in all their little escapades. I can't wait till he can talk with them. =)

I love my family! Each and everyone of them have a special place in my heart. I have been so blessed to not only have been born into an awesome awesome family but to have married into one as well. We have plenty of laughter and good converstations with every encounter. There are certain family members i wish i could see a lot more, like my brother Jon. I miss him tremendously and sure hope he makes it down this way soon!

I love my friends new and old. Most of my friends are my family but i am starting to socialize a little more than i used to and i have thoroughly been enjoying it! I have always been somewhat of a tomboy and automatically got along better with boys then girls. I still feel a stronger connection with guys sometimes but obviously after marriage the thought of having a guy best friend flew out the window. ha But i do believe God is sending people my why and I am trying really hard to listen to him.

I could probably go on and on and on and on (does that remind anyone else of a song lol) but I will just leave it at my top five. Once again I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving (which it now is cause it has taken me forever to write this ha). I am leaving you with a picture of my three blessings. Man I LOVE them!!

I love your line about how your husband makes you feel beautiful all the time.... what an amazing thing! I wish I had that, LOL. I told jr. the other day that an occasional compliment would be awfully nice, lol. I can't even remember the last time that boy told me I looked nice, much less beautiful.AND....love that photo of the kids. Too cute!

ahh thanks girl! Walmart is having 10 cent prints through tonight so i think i will order a whole bunch again. I think i am going to make like 5 copies of each of my favorites and split them between you my mom sister debbie and debbie ann. if anyone wants a different size they can just take it to walmart. and Jr is crazy! he is probably like a lot of guys and just assumes you automatically know he thinks your the hottest woman on earth. hehe but i agree he NEEDS to tell you every now and then! You ARE beautiful!
