Sunshine in My Soul

There is Sunshine in My Soul #10

There is sunshine in my soul

With it being the Saturday before Thanksgiving I have really thought about the things that I am truly thankful for in my life! As I was trying so hard this week to get lots of tasks done before the kids are home all next week from school. I looked around my house and saw huge piles of laundry on the kitchen table (yes, that’s where I fold clothes), toys everywhere as well as stacks of books that Talie sat and looked at while I tried to get things done… Normally, I would have freaked out that the house was a disaster, but I thought to myself these are the moments I will miss this. There will be a point where my table will be empty with no clothes on it except for mine and my husbands; there will be a point where toys won’t be scattered around the floor because they will be too old for Little People and pushing pink shopping carts… and the books… the hours and hours that Talie spends “reading” to herself or begging someone else to read to her. I am so thankful to have a home that is lived in and loved…

Tony hit a big milestone in his life this week! We finally have a mobile baby… just in time to attack the Christmas Presents! He is rolling! It is funny… He has always hated laying on his stomach, so naturally one day as I was busy doing something else and I heard him screaming (crying really, but it is like screaming) and I rushed in there to find him stranded on his stomach… I wondered just how he got that way because Talie has been known to “help” Tony before, so I rolled him back over and lo and behold I saw it… My sweet little caboose rolled over! Of course, he cried again and wanted to roll back over… We repeated this process about a million times! He can roll both ways, but prefers of course to just scream on his stomach… It’s his way to let me know he is still there, I think ;). I am grateful for these memories…

We also had another milestone this week! My sweet husband turned 40! He might kill me for telling you all, but that is ok… It’s our little secret, right? 🙂 I am so thankful for him and the example he sets, the hard worker he is, and the amazing dad he is to our kids… I love him, even though I might get a little annoyed with him every now and again. 🙂

The boys leave today to go visit there dad and their other siblings… This is bittersweet to me because I love that they love to go see their dad, but I miss them so much when they are gone! They are such amazing boys!

We are excited to see Taya this week because we haven’t been able to see her since the summer because of school. I am sure we will get to do lots of fun things! She is so fun to do art projects with! I might have to recruit her to help me with our upcoming Blogmas! Oh, what is Blogmas you ask, well… I will tell you in just a few days, but I can tell you, you aren’t going to want to miss it! So if you haven’t subscribed yet… Be sure to do that!

What are your plans this week for Thanksgiving? Are you headed to family? Are they coming to you? Will it be a nice quiet celebration? Are you headed out and about for Black Friday Shopping? Whatever you do… enjoy the time, create memories that will last a lifetime and be safe!
