Thankful Thursday! Already!

Ummm ...

Can anyone believe that

1) it has been a WEEK since Thanksgiving


2) it is December THIRD?

oh my

Well, back to reality! It IS Thursday and it IS time for Thankfulness! I hope you all will chime in with what you are thankful for this first week of December!

This week I am thankful for...

1. My new niece (known to the blog world as "Sweet Pea")

2. That I was in the hospital when Sweet Pea was born!!! (me and my mom about 30 minutes after she 3 AM...!!!)

3. That Cutie Face had a blast with her cousin, Lil Miss, while the twin was in the hospital with Sweet Pea. I could never hope for better playtimes than they had these past three days. SO precious to watch! My mom said it was like watching me and the twin when we were toddlers. (Kind of like Déjà vu all over again :)

4. That I scored some AWESOME deals over Black Friday and Cyber Monday (like a new iron from Jo-Ann's and Baby Signing Time DVDs for 50% off!)

5. For all the fabulous giveaways on Sew Mama Sew! Have you all entered any yet?

6. That the torrential rain actually stopped at the exact moment when I needed to transfer a sleeping Cutie Face from the car to the apartment! She didn't get wet (which is amazing considering all the rain we had on the way home!) and she stayed asleep (another miracle!) Talk about THANKFUL!

7. That J is FINALLY coming home tonight! I haven't seen him since Sunday afternoon! sniff sniff! I've missed him--and to all you readers who have husbands that are away for extended periods of time (military, job obligations, etc.) I applaud your bravery, patience and perseverance!

It is your turn! What are you thankful for this week?

I am also amazed by how much your babes look like the two of you when you were little. It is quite scary! Those cousins are lucky to have one another. And now these two new precious little bundles can have the same bond as Little Miss and Cutie Face!

I am thankful for the wonderful weather that we have been having that has allowed us to have some new adventures before we hunker down for the winter, and I am thankful that God seems to be opening the doors for a job (finally) that might allow us to see more of YOU! - Kim
