A friend to be thankful for

I have been a slacker on posting what I am thankful for. Opps!

Today I am thankful for Kassy! Kassy is my best friend. We have been best friends for about 20 years now! Holy I really old enough to have a friend for that long?? Today is Kassy's birthday! She's old. She is like the sister I never had and I love her dearly. She is a total nerd and I love her even more for that. I just know we will be friends forever and that makes me happy!

One more thing

Isn't this picture funny! I can't stop laughing at it! Oh Addy I sure do love your face!

Thankful for vitamin C

Today I feel sick and so today I am thankful for these wonderful little fruits that are in season right now! Love you vitamin C! Every year I get so excited when the yummy little clementines are in season it makes my tummy so happy.

I am also thankful for days off so I can take random pictures of fruit. That is all!

We had a wonderful Halloween this year! Addy and Luke loved it! We did all the fun stuff decorated cookies, carved pumpkins, baked pumpkin bread, watched "The Corpse Bride" and, of coarse tricker treated. We only took Addy to my parents house and then over to my Brother's house but she loved every minute of it. Luke on the other hand went with his best friend and they scored big time on the candy! Below are some pictures of our Halloween fun. Addy in her Gnome costume and Luke in his orphan costume. And Shane in his beard. And one of Luke and I very intensely decorating cookies!

I finally had a chance to take down the rest of my decorations today so now the holidays can officially begin. I am super excited for the holidays this year! I think Addy and Luke are going to love it!

Oh and today I am thankful for a warm house that is full of the smell of freshly baked banana bread.

Today is one of those days....

where I have to remind myself of all the things that I should be grateful for. I woke in a fine mood. On my way to work I sent Shane a text that said "Addy was being such a sweetie! I love being her mom!" True statement. She makes me happy! And then I got to work and I turned into an uber-grouch! What? I know I'm at work so that is why I am grouchy. Wrong! Usually work doesn't really make me that grumpy. It is a combination of things really....some I would rather not talk about and others whatever I should just get over being blind in one eye for the day. Blah! November is the month to remember to be thankful so that is what I am trying to do the rest of the day. Be thankful!!!

Today I am thankful that I have such wonderful and funny children. That make me want to live each and I am blind in one eye or not.
