I am thankful for so much.

One thing that just overflows my cup is being able to walk to get Presley after school with Teagan and Temp in tow and stopping back through the park and letting them play for a little while. I can't say no. Even if it's just five minutes. I love it.

I guess it's just a combination of relishing in God's creation, this beautiful weather, having all my babies back under my wing, being away from the tv and laundry, and making them smile. I love watching them explore, master new skills, make up fun games, meet new friends and just have fun!

And then someone's thirsty, hungry or has to pee and we head home.

We hosted thanksgiving here this year with both sides of the family. After we ate, we all headed to the park and enjoyed ourselves and one another. It was nice to enjoy all the things just as mentioned above but with the whole family! Running around also helped digest all the delicious food we ate!! We came back ready for dessert and shared with each other what we were thankful for.

It was a great day.

Skipping ahead

Today was a fun day! Christopher Popinkins was back and brought some ginger bread houses! After Presley got home from school, we got to work erecting two houses. You can see him hanging from the light.

Then we hit the square for a Christmas carriage ride. These are terrible pictures, but I love this time of year!

Teagan turned five!  She is still as determined and fiesty as the day she was born!  Her sweet and cuddly side is still there too.  She can't just be near you, she has to be up in your lap or nestled into the crook of your arm.  She still enjoys potty humor above all else.  She's quick to boss, but is terribly indecisive (just like her Mama).  She teaches me a lot about myself and about parenting. 

The first leg of our celebrations was a dress up pumpkin patch party at the Blase Family Farm in Rockwall!  Such a fun place.  (FYI, in June they hope to have blueberry picking!)

It was a fun party!  Stay tuned...
