Daily Thanks – 7/24/2009

Today I’m thankful that…

  • Michelle woke me up at 5:50 a.m. to hold baby Jude while she went back to bed.
  • Elsa woke up at 6:20 and Collin woke up at 6:30, both too excited to sleep because they have a new brother.
  • Baby Jude went to sleep while I rocked him in the chair and slept 3 hours.
  • Elsa joined us in the chair about 8:00 a.m. and feel back to sleep.IMG_6574
  • I fell asleep with the kids and Michelle snapped a few funny pictures of us snoozing about 9:00 when she got back up.
  • I have good farm fresh eggs from Big Sam, the Amish farmer, that I had for breakfast.
  • Collin wanted to build a bell to hang from a rope on his fort in the back yard and that he decided to build the bell out of wood.
  • I had a great cup of PG Tips hot tea with cream and sugar.
  • Jean stopped by to bring us food that Sue sent in from Bible Camp because she loves our kids: chicken-n-dumplins for Elsa and biscuits-n-gravy for Collin.
  • Collin, Elsa and I went to run errands and Suzanne & Elizabeth Patton, down at Ace Hardware, helped us pick models to build.
  • Jean brought us a plant for our backyard.
  • I took photos of Collin and Elsa being silly on the new Slip-N-Slide.
  • Nanny brought us chicken and homemade mashed potatoes for dinner.
  • Kortni came back to help around the house again tonight. She did dishes and laundry. She’s a good girl!
  • We’re finishing the day relaxing and watching Sponge Bob and next Food Network.
