Day 171

November 23rd, 2013

I'm thankful for bazaars.  I'm learning a lot by doing this - things I can do to sell more and gain more contacts. 

Day 170

November 22nd, 2013

I'm thankful for date nights with Jolie.  Tonight we went to Mt. Scott swimming pool.  We had fun going down the slide, playing in the whirl pool and in the lazy river. 

Day 169

November 21st, 2013

I'm thankful for the temple and the opportunity I had to go there with Paul.  We hadn't been to the temple together in over a year. 

Day 168

November 20th, 2013

I'm thankful for beautiful music.  Jenea is so creative, she can just sit at the piano and create music. 

Day 167

November 19th, 2013

I'm thankful for sweet ladies who care about and mentor Jolie in the gospel.  This picture was taken from a couple of weeks ago at recognition night. Pictured is Eva, Jolie and Jenna (and Jenevieve who wanted to get in on the action)

Day 166

I'm thankful for green smoothie goodness - Jenevieve is getting into grandma's green smoothie supplement stash.

November 17th, 2013

I'm thankful for messes because it means little children abound.  

Day 164

November 16th, 2013

I'm thankful for nailpolish, though I would prefer it be used on nails instead of the wall.  Jadon has had an inkling for painting today - he painted his toes, his clothing, the wall, his bedroom floor and paper. 

Day 163

November 15th, 2013

I'm thankful for hand me down clothes.  This dress was Jenea's when she was Jolie's age.  I think she looks pretty cute in it!

I'm thankful sleeping children.  Jude was so tired he fell asleep during evening scriptures. 

Day 161

November 13th, 2013

I'm thankful for Jude!

Day 160

November 12th, 2013

I'm thankful for a washing machine - apparently it even cleans dirty disposable diapers. 

Day 159

November 11th, 2013

I'm thankful for boo boo spray, how healing it is to the children when they get boo boos.  

Day 158

November 10th, 2013

I'm SO thankful for my beautiful, sweet, loving, happy sweet girls and all the joy they bring into my life!

So grateful to have the children's assistance in cleaning our van.  

Day 156

Our entertainment - the squirrel discovered we have an open box of apples on our deck so it helped itself.  We sat there watching it for some time.   

Day 155

The boys love their hand me down "new" clothes.

My little girl smells like Italian food.  Her ears are bothering her again.

The girls got to wear new jewelry to church today thanks to Aunt Jennifer who visited yesterday and likes to spoil the girls (and Jaren).  

Day 150

November 2nd, 2013

Got our Halloween decorations down and our Thanksgiving decorations up. 

Day 149

November 1st, 2013

Jadon sleeping on the floor again - nearly every day he asks me if it's the weekend so he can sleep on the floor, or couch, or chair.  Jenevieve was interrupting when daddy was rubbing his back.  She likes to play around!

Day 148

October 31st, 2013

I was in charge of the children's private school Halloween party, along with a few other mothers.  Jenevieve made a new friend and Jolie got her face painted by a sister witch.

Apparently pumpkins are for sitting on.
