Thanking God for small blessings





I found this awesome Christmas book at Barnes and Noble last year for $7 on clearance. We read it last night. Hunter sat in my lap over a half hour and just listened. He loves books! We have a tradition of reading "Twas the Night before Christmas" every Christmas Eve. We just did it early this year:) We are ALL getting excited about the holidays this year!!!
Hunter got up early today and crawled in bed with us..it was nice:) He usually doesn't like it in our bed since he likes his own so much. That's wonderful since he hasn't slept with us very much but it is nice to snuggle up with him, you know. Mike is off today because of the government holiday. So, he made us blueberry muffins and took care of Hunter this morning. On the days he's off he likes to get him dressed, feed him breakfast and take him to daycare since he doesn't usually get to see him in the morning. It was really nice spending time with him before work. It makes my day:) He's truly my best friend. He's going running with a friend of his today. They work together and usually go when they're both off. He and I are going tomorrow afternoon after Hunter's nap. I haven't felt like doing much this week I've been so down. But today, I feel great and am so thankful for the blessings in my life. I think we might go to the Stride Ride Outlet in Williamsburg tomorrow to get Hunter a couple pairs of new shoes and maybe just enjoy the day. I'd LOVE to finish my shopping tomorrow...hmmm... I'd like to get some fall pictures. We need to cut the grass this weekend also and I'm hoping to plant some flowers. I *LOVE* working in the yard. It's fun to sit back and see what we've accomplished when we're done. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend:)

*Oh this is the card from my friend Becky from Church. She is one of the most thoughtful people I know!!*

awesome. Not ausome. Did you know there are a million scrapbooking boards online? 12 of them on 2peas alone. Why are you coming to the ONE board you know I hang out? It's like you're stalking me or deliberatly trying to make me mad. I don't get it Jenn, if you want me out of your life so much why are you coming there where you know I've been hanging out the last 1.5 years???? Just wondering. Seems odd to me, that's all.
