3 things I'm thankful for today... Today I'm not feeling very thankful at all.  I've been yelling at my kids all morning, and so far it's just not a good start to the week.  I'm cold, the house is a mess, and I'm just grumpy.  But here we go...
1. I am thankful for a house.  A place to be during these cold months.
2. I am thankful for computers and such an easy way to connect with other friends and moms.
3. I am thankful for Kevin's job and all that it provides for our family.

Join in with your weekly plans!  Read the guidelines, then come back and leave your link below!  Have a great week and a happy Thanksgiving!!

It's been one of those days here too, Sarah. Tristan has been telling me "no" all day & Isaac is whiny. I think it's the weather and the anticipation of the coming weekend festivities! Perk up, nap time is soon!
