Thankful - Day 24

I am so thankful for my baby boy Jaden and the young man he has grown up to be. We had our parent/teacher conference yesterday and he makes us so proud. He has 26 + (exceeds expectation of 2nd grade) and 10 check+'s...we are so proud of our big 2nd grader! He has such good handwriting (he must take after his mom!) He is so kind, loving, athletic and most of all handsome and we love him soo much. The other night Joelie wanted to have a sleep over in his room, so we let them and I tucked them in and shut the door, I stayed outside the door for a little bit to was the cutest thing ever! Jaden says to her, "You want to say our prayers" and she says "Yeah". So I listened to him pray and then it was her turn, she thinks she still needs help, so I hear her ask him to help her. So he tells her what to say and then they both say Amen. Then he says "I love you sissy, goodnight and she says I love you too...I couldn't stop smiling and thinking that "God gave them to ME" Thank you God for my kids!

Toothpaste and Coupons

Thankful - Day 23

I got up this morning and said "Good Morning" to my husband. He in return said, "Gross, your breath smells like dirty broccoli" (as opposed to clean broccoli???) anyhow, my husband is very grateful that I use toothpaste and I am sure you all are too:-)

I am also so thankful for those good coupons that one can't live without. My goal is to try to have a coupon everywhere I go, I succeed most of the time! Here are a few to share...these can be used more than once too ladies!!!




Everyone have a good night!!

Granny and My Brother

Thankful - Day 22

I am SOOOO thankful for my Grandma aka Granny. We don't know what we would do without her. My kids love her so much and want to always be with Granny. Thank you for taking care of my kids when I need you and wanting to spend time with them. And when I need that quick dessert or side for some party, Granny is always there for me! We all love you so much and thank God for you everyday!

I am also very thankful for my baby brother Andy and his wife Josie and my neice "baby Myli". My brother is only 15 months younger than me and like a foot taller than me but he is still younger than me!! He is such a good daddy and we are so proud of you both! I wish you lived closer so we could see you all more often. My kids LOVE Uncle Andy (annie) and wish he could attend more of their events, maybe someday right?? We love you three and can't wait for four someday:-)

Job and Health

Thankful - Day 20

I am very thankful for my job at PNNL, I love my job. Not many people can say that! They have worked around my schedule for years and I really appreciate them, who else would let me basically work when I want - 2 days and week for 10 hours or more a day and give me benefits for my family and some play money!! I have been with them since 1993 and am VERY grateful for everything they have done for me!

I am also very thankful for my co-workers who have also become some of my bestest friends! Stacey, Lisa, Debbie, Andy and Kim just to name a few...this is Stacey and her boyfriend Barney.

I am also very grateful for my health, I have been so healthy all my life, I am kinda scared to bring it up, but I am very grateful!! My biggest surgery was wisdom teeth and having my kids!! I think he knows I probably wouldn't handle it well (esp. since i almos fainted watching Jeremy get an IV), thank you GOD!

Thankful - Day 17

I am very thankful for my baby sister Wendi who is often confused as my twin, which she Hates! I think she is much prettier than me and is 5 years younger than me so I take it as a big compliment when asked if we are twins. She is my best friend and I am lucky enough to have her live only a few doors down from me. Her and Matthew are in Vegas right now and have left my Abbey Dabbey with me (mimi) to love on while they are gone! She sure does miss her mommy and daddy! I am so proud of you two, you are awesome parents and she loves you both alot.

Abbey is practicing to be a take care of us when we are old!


Thankful - Day 16

I am so thankful for my husband, he is the world's best father and husband! I am a lucky girl to have him. He can basically fix ANYTHING and I mean anything! He is so good with our kids, he does so many special things with them, he really is such a great father! He helps around the house and lets me take naps, who could ask for more! I love you Jer aka Pete!

Being Thankful - Day 12

Tonight Jaden was just finishing his bedtime prayers and he says "Oh wait, one more thing...Dear Jesus, thank you for the wind, but can you make it go away now?" I had to grin because if you live anywhere near the Tri-Cities tonight, you know you were thinking the same thing!!

Purse Swap

Fun Night...

My sister and some friends and I went to a purse swap tonight. It was fun. We took our new neighbor Renee who lives in Wendi and I's house that we grew up in here in Summit View, she is awesome:-) It is so wierd to be in that house again, brings back good memories!
Tonight was full of...
FUN, FOOD and FELLOWSHIP (The 3 F's) was a really fun thing to do and best of ALL, we didn't spend any $$$$.
Here is what her invite said in case anyone wants to try it!!
So, if you're anything like me, you have a pile of purses in your closest; some that are still in great condition, but you don't use anymore...Right? Well - bring one (or two) to our first "PURSE SWAP"! Make sure they're in good condition and "stylish" ~ in other words, don't just bring your crap you want to get rid of!! :)Here's what our evening will look like: we'll put all the purses in the center and have time to scope 'em out. I'll provide heavy appetizers for dinner and will have an array of fabulous drinks for you to choose from. Then after our tummys are full and we have a couple drinks in us - LET THE SWAP BEGIN! We'll draw numbers and begin "fighting" over the best of the bunch. It's like a Purse Party - but don't bring your wallet!Start looking to see what purse(s) you can bring and join us for a fun evening!
