Isn't it pretty? It was so yummy. (I didn't make it!)
-good friends for my kids
-Eric using his afternoon off to do a task that I really hate and always put off and the longer I put it off the more there is to do and the more I dread it and ... he did it for me. I love that man.

TMD6 or Mr. A Turns Two

Today I'm thankful for a very pleasant birthday for the Little Fella. He was delighted with his train table and played with it all day. We went to Chickfila for lunch, and let the girls choose a couple of little gifts for him. Grandparents came over for dinner and cake and more gifts. I think he had a great time!

I totally swiped these pictures from Facebook so that brings me to my second thing: grandparents with whom we have wonderful relationships, and who are ever ready to take pictures of memorable moments.

Today I'm thankful for:
-heavy snow melting pretty quickly and not breaking any more branches off of our tree
-a good last-day-of-being-one for the little fella
-my niece HJ who is 12 now and a super help to me when she comes over
-my treadmill
-our new coffee table

Just kidding! But for serious, I'm thankful for awesome post-Christmas clearance deals that translate to birthday gifts on the cheap for Mr. A. I can't wait to see his reaction when he sees his train all set up on his new table.

And what are you thankful for today?

Today I'm thankful for:
-my dad. Today's his birthday! We got to see him a couple of months ago.


He likes to watch old movies and tv shows, and often will text me lines of dialogue from what he's watching. Sometimes it's because it's funny, and sometimes it's so I can guess what he's watching. I like that he thinks of me, because I always think of him when I'm watching a classic comedy.
-being able to communicate almost instantly via phone, internet, etc.
-a little nap this afternoon. I don't get to do that very often!
-these girls. They are best buds.
