Brock got a haircut and other misc. stuff I'm thankful for

My kids have Thanksgiving break from school the rest of this week. I am hoping that I see lots of what you see pictured here...hugs, smiles, twirling and playing together. Maybe a bit of scrapping- with that vintage record cover and cute Happy Campers paper, and then some Christmas decorating as well. I am hoping to have enough energy to keep up with all 5 of them. Or at least a chance to nap when Crew naps, if I can get so lucky. =) Crew is either wide awake and happy and cooing, or fussing really loudly. And when he's not doing that he sleeps. Really well. Especially in the bouncy seat that has the calming vibration switch.

If I had to choose just 10 things to be thankful for this Thanksgiving, that little bouncy seat with an on/off switch would be among them. =) Sometimes the little things can bring us the most gratitude. I am glad that I have so much to be thankful for, even with our nation's struggling economy and the uncertainties that are so prevelant in this world. I have more than I need; more than I deserve, and I overlook things far too often. However, I am grateful. Not just today, but as I look back in my life I see how much I have been given. I'm glad that we have a holiday and time to spend thinking about our blessings. I hope you have a lot to be thankful for in your own life. I wish for you a Happy Thanksgiving.
