What I am grateful for...

I just got off the phone with my Mom a few minutes ago and we were talking about some of the trials that are swirling around in the family. We started talking about how incredibly blessed we are, and how spoiled. We have so much in this life and we forget it, almost instantly. We become aware of things, mostly when they stop working and we are stuck washing the dishes by hand, or left for a day without internet access. We are blessed more than we can comprehend...
Today I am thankful for:

My incredibly comfortable bed that I woke up in.
My husband leaving for work, because it meant he still had a job!
Snuggling with Tristin and talking before the the girls woke up and the day got started.
Public schools & 1st grade teachers.
My yellow VW bug that is still running!
A closet full of clothes.
A princess named Daisy (who loves to change dresses every 30 minutes.)
My little monkey, Grace, who loves to give kisses.
Clorex wipes.
Making Birthday cakes just to see how excited the kids get to help.
Computers & telephones.
My family.
My new saw!

Happy birthday Papa!

Today my wonderful husband turned 31! How did we get this old?...( we ask ourselves frequently, especially on the nights we find ourselves in bed by 9:00 PM!!)
Well, how ever it happened, it the girls and I are making his cake right now and I couldn't resist taking a few pictures of them licking the cake batter...

Bath time is so much fun...

Grace was so cute the other night. She couldn't believe her hair when I held her up to the mirror. There's nothing better than a bath time mohawk!
