Christmas was merry and bright!

We all had a wonderful Christmas. Great kids who were amazed by Santa's magic, knowing just the right things to bring, just the right time to come both to Mom and PopPop's house and in the middle of the night while sleeping. He ate our cookies, drank our milk and took the food to his reindeer.

We got more than anyone should during a time that is so hard on so many people and we are thankful and very blessed.

Thank you.

Happy Birthday!

Originally uploaded by The Joys of Motherhood
Today, Jack turned 2 yrs. old. He is smart as a whip, can talk your leg off, a very fast runner and had a ball at his family birthday party Saturday night and playing at Chuck E Cheese while carrying around torn tickets that he was more excited about than the prizes you get for said tickets. He is growing so fast, playing so much, loving with an open heart and stubborn as a mule. He's perfect.
I love you, Jack!

Long overdue, but totally needed

Here is my list of things/people I am thankful for:

My family, the list is long and you know who you are (mostly the only people who read this blog if any of you still do, which I don't know since you NEVER comment), my home, warmth, food-a- plenty (even some of it I have made with my very own two hands!), a life that lets me spend an extraordinary amount of time with my children who both amuse and amaze me every single day, more times that I am laughing than not, free long distance (and if you know me at all, you know I am serious about my phone usage), our dvr (I really do use it multiple times per day, every day), healthy family members, loving friends and a country that we have a voice in and are able to say what we want, when we want to and not fear what may happen to us.

I hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving and are almost done shopping for Christmas!!!
