Yesterday, I was a ditz. My sister sent me a great big box full of clothes, candy and cookies!!! How could I not be thankful for that?! Getting packages in the mail is one of the most enjoyable things in life. Especially when they are from family and sent with love.
We had so much fun going through the goodies. We ate the cookies, we popped the candies in our mouths, sorted the clothes, read the nice little note and ogled at the pictures of our little cousins (nephews) who now live thousands of miles away. We miss them so much! What a blessing. Thank you Heather!
A couple of random things I am thankful for today:
1. corduroys. They are comfortable, warm and cozy. I may need to buy more pairs. Almost as comfortable as yoga pants. Almost.
2. Chocolate chip cookies. They taste so darn good. I am also thankful that despite a bunch of spilled brown sugar, my attempt to make them with Jacob went fairly smoothly. That was until Landon came along and the boys started grabbing handfuls of chocolate chips out of the bowl as I poured them in. On another note, do you let your kids eat cookie dough? I didn’t. I licked the beater in secret. Is that mean?
3. Snuggling. I am thankful for every moment I get to snuggle Landon (or Chubs) in the rocking chair. He is 18 months old and is fast outgrowing his baby self. He is becoming more of a toddling boy, than the little guy who sits in my lap. So when I get to snuggle him in the rocking chair while he holds his blankie and doggie, and sniff his freshly shampooed little head, and sit in the dark and rock, I revel. I know there won’t be many more days like this. I am going to soak it all in.
Well, that’s all folks. Thanks for hanging in there with all this “thankfulness” mush. 🙂

I just love care packages! That is definitely enough to make my day!
Thank YOU for the thankfulness mush!
I happened upon your blog a few weeks back, when you were joking about Halloween and Butterfingers, and I laughed and laughed with you. As I see my friends starting to have children and watch others interact with their new tots, for the first time, I’m reconsidering the thought that maybe children weren’t meant for me.
I thoroughly enjoy your jokes, quips and stories and I truly value the push to step back and appreciate the small things and small people. Thanks for sharing and happy holidays!
Hey! Wow! Thank you so much! I was pretty sure I lost everyone who came and visited–haha 🙂 So thanks for letting me know you are still here and you enjoy my lame humor 😉 The thankfulness thing has been really good for me. But I am looking forward to putting a little more effort into writing my posts once I am not posting daily. It is so hard with the little ones. And children are a wonderful blessing…even if they are challenging. There is honestly nothing else in the world quite like it! Your eyes are opened to so many things when you become a parent! I hope you do one day!! Again, thanks for coming back and letting me know you are here 🙂
My kid doesn’t snuggle well anymore. It makes me sad. He wants to, but he can’t be still for anything.
It is so sad when they don’t snuggle anymore 😦 My first son, Jacob, was not much of a snuggled, but Landon sure is. So I will enjoy every moment because I know they are dwindling fast! Thanks for stopping in Kim.
