I'm Thankful (just a few days late):

- For healthy, happy, beautiful children.

- For noggin. :) (It's channel 165 here, if you're one of those still using Nickelodeon as your ---ahem--- occasional babysitter-- no commercials-- so much better)

- That I have two girls and that future Thanksgivings will consist of lots of estrogen in the kitchen while I teach them to make pies and all sorts of homemade deliciousness (of course I'll have to learn to make a homemade pie by then, but I'm confident that it's not too late. And mom, I know you already taught me-- my fault it didn't stick :))

- That the feast of Thanksgiving is over and A. we get to decorate for Christmas and B. maybe, JUST maybe I'll be able to get my eating in check at least some time before the Christmas binge begins. (I'm not counting on it, but I figured writing it down might help.)

- For those people that make sure and pull to the left when they're in the right lane but not turning right, so that you don't have to wait for the green light to make your right turn. (That's a nice way of saying that the people that don't do that drive me CRAZEEEE!)

- For a killer husband and daddy in my house. I know people get sick of hearing "my husband is SOOOOO great"-- and 'Ser. so blessed' would like to barf all over me--- but he is. So deal with it. He is totally my own Edward Cullen, and for that, I'm so grateful. ;)

- For a new backyard!! (I can't believe I haven't blogged about this yet, since we have recently transformed our DIRT lot to a yard with grass, and plants, and stamped concrete..... hooray!

- For those shirts that have a seam above your chest, a tight band at your hips, but blouse out over your belly. I heart you blousey shirts. Oh what would I do without your magic?

- That my girls got Ross' big blue eyes.

- For Trader Joe's frozen brown rice-- it's a revolution. I hope I never have to make my own brown rice again.

- For a strong and healthy body .

- That I get to be a woman, bear children, stay home with them, and feel the trials and the JOY that come with that every day.

- For temples, and celestial marriage. (If the angry protestors outside of the LDS temples had any idea how sacred those buildings were..... the whole thing makes me cringe)

- For my testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Happy Late Thanksgiving. I hope yours was special.

All I have to say is that... I'm grateful for you, Lillie-Lou! Oh, and that I'm officially one of your blog-stalkers!

You totally got me hooked on the TJ's brown rice.

Show pics of your backyard! So fun.

The photo that showed up in bloglines no longer exists! Just came to say jealous that you got into such a cute one!

I have to ask, where do you find the magic shirts? I could use a few of those :).

I love the thankfuls list... I think I may do one of my own.. What a great idea! Reading yours makes me think of all the wonderful things that I have in my life too! I am so thankful to have friends remind me of what I am thankful for... Thanks Lillie! Happy Thanksgiving!

Reading that was a pleasure! I always feel like giggling when you start a parenthesis side-comment to your own. It's just so conversational! I bet you'd whisper stuff to me in sacrament meeting if we were in the same ward.
