With Thanksgiving approaching quickly, I thought it would be neat to share what we are thankful for. We did this last night at bunko and all of us were in tears! Like I was telling them....It is so easy to get caught up in the "daily routine" and forget the little things in life that matter and how much we truly have to be thankful for!!!! That being said........this is what i'm thankful for.....
Having God in my life.....although he gives me "challenges" that I don't always understand, I know he is always there to guide me through them!!!
My family....I have been so blessed having Clint in my life! He is a wonderful husband, father and provider! Emma....she is my little princess who always brightens my day and makes me laugh with one of her silly sayings and can't melt my heart with the simple words "I love you mommy"!!! Grant...he hasn't been around long, but has touched my life in SO MANY ways!!! It's amazing to think that there was a time when I just watched him laying there in the hospital not sure if I would ever bring him home, and now i'm looking at a healthy little boy with a double chin who is almost 8 pounds!!!! God was definately watching over my "little miracle"!!!
My health- Although i'm still struggling with a few blood pressure issues, I am so thankful to have good health!!
I could go on and on, but these are just a few things that I am really thankful for!

Well we had our annual Fall Bash Saturday night and it was bigger than ever!!!! We had approx. 85 people at my house...WOW! I was going to skip it this year b/c of everything that has been going on, but people started asking me about it and I said "why not". Thank goodness we have acreage and a huge carport otherwise it wouldn't be possible! I really didn't get to mingle as much as usual b/c I was inside with little man, but everyone seemed to have a great time! I spent yesterday "trying" to re-cooperate (sp?), but that wasn't very successful since I had both kiddos by myself...my hubby escaped to go hunting. I'm still dragging today, but not as bad.....hopefully all will be back to normal by tomorrow. It was a great time.......just glad I have a whole year until the next one!

I "think" Emma is finally on her way to being potty trained! We have been working on this for about 8 months now and out of the blue she decided she was ready. I was getting so stressed out about it and of course everyone kept telling me not to push, that she would do it when SHE was ready......guess that is true! We have been in BIG girl panites for 3 days (except for naptime and bedtime) and she's only had 1 accident at her Grandma's. YAY....i'm trying not to get to excited, but I think she is actually ready now. Thanks for letting me share the exciting news!!
