thankful tuesday

Happy Thanksgiving week! I'm back with three simple things of thanks...beautiful moments among the ordinary, every Tuesday from me to you. As you are looking forward to a day full of family, food, and maybe some retail shopping, what are YOU thankful for?

"Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving." -W.T. Purkiser

one: a bonus day with my little bit. She was up sick last night, so I stayed home with her today, and I'm loving all the extra squeezes I get to get in when I should be at work. (Plus, she's feeling better-double thanks!)

two: Furry rain boots on a cold and rainy day. Thank you Costco.

three: moments of peace and a fur blanket.

thankful tuesdays

Three simple things of thanks...beautiful moments among the ordinary every Tuesday from me to you.

"It is not happy people who are thankful, it is thankful people who are happy." -Unknown

one: A beautiful weekend celebrating the littlest sis' birthday in Winston-Salem. {Hello, sir in the back}.

two: A beautiful 70 degree mini-break to thaw out from the cold. And a cooperative fat dog who lets a baby bury her in leaves.

three: imagination, through the eyes of a one year old. A cabinet is a hiding spot, a colander is a kaleidoscope, and the stairs make an excellent tummy slide. Seeing the world through her little eyes is amazing and hilarious.

Ten on ten...November

Man...I missed a couple of months since April's ten on ten.  Let's just say I've been busy. Ok? Ok.

Today I am linking up with A Little Bit of Sunshine to find the beautiful moments among the ordinary. The prompt this month is A Full Harvest; and as I watch sweet Lucy grow into the little person she is becoming, I can't help but acknowledge how full my heart is, even when a tantrum is involved, and how much we are encouraging her precious little heart to be a woman of noble character.

Morning peek-a-boos and festive pjs. 

A little target run (still in our pjs). Don't judge. 

Getting my pretty on...for church. 

A little Jersey Mike's pit stop to pick up sandwiches for lunch. 

This girl LOVES to do laundry. 

Anatomy lessons with Papa. "Ears"

3 incredible babysitters...all at once! We are so lucky. 

Bedtime for baby and this wrinkly girl. 

Wine time. 

And a little Dirty Dancing to cap off the night. #nobodyputsbabyinacorner

Life lately in pictures

So, these past two weeks were cra-crazy. And I completely intended to post sweet halloween pics, and our fun weekend. And now....more time has passed.

So I will just catch you up with pictures instead!

We had a little gathering before trick-or-treating with candy corn shaped cheese, Pioneer Woman's candy corn popcorn balls, and spiked cider {for the adults}. We're going to have to continue this tradition every year,it was great!

Tow-mater and the Princess checking out each other's costumes...

She had the whole Trick-or-treating thing down. 

Happy Fall Y'all!
