Thankful Thursday. Week 2.

Right now, I am thankful for...

1. Getting a lot of Christmas shopping out of the way. I am feeling on top of it all in that regard right now. J and I sat down awhile back, made lists and have really worked as a team coming up with ideas this year and I'm really excited about it and also feeling not so overwhelmed.

2. Blogging. That may seem like such an odd thing to be thankful for but I am so very thankful for the outlet that blogging has given me. The opportunities that have come my way. The people I have met. The people I have reconnected with. I am really thankful for all of that and those who choose to pay me a visit here.

3. Visit to Chicago. Friday, my littles and I will be boarding a plane (E's first, H's eighth) to Chicago to visit good, good friends. The purpose behind the trip in itself is a dear friend's baby shower. I haven't been to Chicago in over a year, so I'm excited.

4. The weather again this week. It has been gorgeous and what fall should really be like. I won't complain one second that we get to play outside in sweatshirts, in Minnesota, in November.

5. Pictures. I got a sneak peak at our family pictures this week and they are great. I can't wait until I get the CD and can show them off here. I also took E in for some belated nine-month photos (ok more like 11 1/2 months, but had to do it before she turns 1) and they also turned out great. I love pictures and I love that we can capture our moments that way. Something special about the technology around that now and how we can do so many different things.

So, what are you waiting for? What are YOU thankful for this week?

Please share in the comments if you don't have a blog and if you do please link back to your Thankful Thursday post here.

Thank you God for all these things (and more) this week.

As much as I have loved the years of my kids being "littles" and have been sad to have certain stages of parenting end, I am thankful for...
1. no longer needing to find babysitters.
2. weekends when my husband & I have the house to ourselves and we didn't even try to arrange it.
3. spontaneously being able to catch a movie together at the last minute...even on a week night.
4. kids that can drive.
5. spending time with our teen/young adult age kids and realizing I love this stage too!
