Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving in our office means a ton of college students home for the holiday.  I think everyone I saw today was between the ages of 19-21!


So... ten things off the top of my head that I'm thankful for this year:


10)  Baby E is sleeping longer than 3 hrs at a time!  Waking up twice now at night.. hoping it will continue to improve


9)  Toddler A continues to  be a great sleeper at night!  She is also starting to use the potty more and more... maybe no more diapers soon...


8)  Preschooler S has become quite the helpful big sister and there are fewer and fewer tantrums/emotional meltdowns overall.  Hoping that trend continues...


7)  Daddy is around for the entire Thanksgiving break!  Really feel his absence when he is on a trip.. thankful he can help with a nighttime feed here and there...


6)  Grandma is healthy enough to continue coming over to help with the kids... cooking... cleaning... taking care of me!  Sometimes.... I just need my "mommy"...


5)  Grandpa is healthy enough to occasional come over to "play" with the kids... though they probably stress him out...


4)  Our au pair has really worked out so far and been a tremendous help!


3)  Friends from far away that I can still count on to talk to and lean on...


2)  Friends close by to have adult conversations with...


1)  God who is always constant... always present... never failing...


Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!


Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.  - 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
