Thankful - Oct. 6, 2010

I'm thankful for all this lovely overcast weather! Seriously. I'm not being sarcastic. If you know me well, you know I kind of melt like the wicked witch in the sun. I love summer and all it's hotness and such. But oh that refreshing, cool season we call fall. I love it all. In a way that's not small. So go have a ball. In the season of fall. (totally impromptu, not deleting...)

I'm thankful for Maverick frozen yogurt. (Pumpkin flavored people!)

I'm thankful my husband is the brains of this operation and I'm just the brawn. (Or something like that.)

I'm thankful for tiny guys learning to use their tiny little limbs to propel themselves forward! Remember when they lived in a plastic box and we could barely touch them!?! REMEMBER?! Now they scoot and roll and PULL THEMSELVES UP (sometimes) and if I think about it too much I'm going to start crying. (Again. I really need to pull it together about all these milestones. There are about a million in one's life. Come high school graduation, they'll have me admitted!)

I'm thankful for my mom. My kid's grandma. My friend. She is super-star nanny/grandma/helper/be there whenever/career woman/mom/amazing person.

I'm thankful when people comment! So silly, but it makes my day. Thanks.

Kidding. Always the English teacher... ;)

Love this post.I too have been feeling very thankful lately for the little things, since I heard President Monson's talk on Sunday. And I LOVE this fall weather.

Well how can I not comment after that post? I'll admit I love comments too. I love the crisp fall air and all the festivities of fall. And it is amazing you have three healthy thriving babies. So exciting

I'm so grateful for you Kara! I wish I could randomly boycott SUU and come see you guys whenever I want. I love you so much!

And I totally love it when there are comments too. <3

Isn't it amazing how much you appreciate your mom now? It's good to know that you will be appreciated in about 30 years. ;) Moms are amazing, and this includes you!

Just reading your blog, thanks for sending it to me. Your babies are so cute!! Soon enough they'll be in high school. Then you become panicked, wondering if you did enough to let them go into the world on their own.
My son was born December 18 and although I wish he was born in July the December thing is sort of neat. When he was a baby I used to hold him in a chair that was by the Christmas tree and wondered and hope that I wouldn’t screw up his life too much. (December is such a wonderful month of hope don’t you think?) I thought about the Christmas story (the original one, although I really like the new one too with the leg lamp but I digress . . .) I contemplated the pressure Mary must have felt because I felt it too.
And this year when Christmas Eve arrived we had no furniture, didn’t need a crib but we had a lovely table and we ate dinner and went to church. (Something we had not done in a while).
I can see that you are the kind of person that enjoys the moments in life that builds wonderful memories.
I will definitely follow your blog to watch your little ones grow. . .
