a very thankful thursday thirteen!

wow! so many things to be thankful for this thanksgiving! the list goes on and i will limit myself to the top thirteen things i thank God for giving me!!!

1. my husband, tim who loves me unconditionally

2. my daughter, sarah for lighting up my life with laughter

3. my son, drew for being the best cuddler in the world

4. my brother's safe return from korea, reunion with sarah, and introduction to drew

5. my parents and inlaws for always taking care of us and spoiling us silly

6. my extended family who loves us enough to drive hours and hours to spend thanksgiving together

7. good health for my family and friends

8. earthly provisions above what i need

9. a wonderful church family

10. great friends who support me and pray for me

11. my Heavenly Father who forgives me over and over and over and over and over

12. casseroles...what DOESN'T taste better in a casserole? squash? broccoli? sweet potatoes? corn? green beans? need i say more?

13. sonic diet cokes

ok, i know the last two are a little silly...but, i really am thankful for the little pleasures in life that make each day more fun! especially when the kiddos (or me) are having a bad day!

happy thanksgiving!

a fun fall afternoon!!!

sarah telling drew, "no"...repeatedly. when he tried to get her basket!
sarah showing off her "loot"!

drew ate a few leaves today!

surprisingly, drew is not sad in this pic...just trying out one of his new faces!
sarah was really proud of this particular leaf. the wonder of a child?!?
do you think that pacifier feels good stuffed up his nose?
sarah thinks she was "holding" drew in this pic!
sarah is always so silly!
picking acorns!
how cute!

how cute is this face?!?

i'm in the kitchen with sarah!!!

sarah and i made cookies today! she was having so much fun! notice her precious apron (courtesy of miss emilee)! the only hang up in the situation was sarah wanted to put the cookies in the microwave! apparently that is the most commonly used appliance in our kitchen :) well, it was a fun morning anyway!!!

oh no! so it begins...

sarah already looks like she's going to be a lefty, and now she is exhibiting early signs of her mother's "attention to details" (aka obsessive-compulsiveness)...i caught sarah lining up her babies, bear, and monkey, and leaving just enough space for her to squeeze in too! i'm so proud :)
