Getting caught up on being thankful..

8. Coffee. I am always thankful for coffee.
9. My health. I treat a lot of people who are very ill and it makes me appreciate how healthy I am.
10. Friends. As I have gotten older my group of friends grows but I have many friends that I still remain quite close to. I got together with 2 of my high school friends over the weekend. It's so nice to get together and be able to pick up right where we left off
11. Running. Although I have not done much running recently. Running has become one of the things that keeps me sane! The quote below sums up why I run and love it.
12. Crafting. It's right up there with running as a sanity saver. Right now I am really into knitting and crocheting. The picture below is of the kids in the hats and scarves I made for them. It snowed today and they were so excited to wear them!

Being Thankful

6. Being able to vote. We are so fortunate to live in a democracy where we won't be killed for expressing our opinions.
7. The MN Marriage Amendment being defeated. I am SO proud of my state!! Way to go MN!!! (for those who don't know, a NO vote is not supporting a constitutional amendment defining marriage as only between a man and a woman)

Being thankful.

Since it's November now a lot of my friends are doing 30 days of Thankfulness. I am few days behind so I need to catch up.

I am thankful for
1. My husband Peter. He married me despite knowing all about my spending habits and the debt that came along with me!
2. My daughter Addison. She is just like me and it sometimes creeps me out. But she is a true blessing, sassiness and all.
3. My son Eli. He is such a sweet boy 1 minute and driving his sisters crazy the next. He adds a lot of noise to the house but I would not have it any other way.
4. My daughter Morgan. I had said it a million times, she is the reason we can handle triplets. She has been the easy going one from the beginning. She's not perfect, but definitely is the people pleaser of the group.
5. We caught the mouse that was in our oven the other night. C'mon not all of the things I am thankful for can't be deep. I don't want a rodent running around my house..enough said! RIP buddy!

Hello all. We have been a little behind on the blog here, but we have been keeping plenty busy. The blog has suffered because of an issue with Blogger and only being able to access the blog for publishing from the iPad. which makes for messy blog posts since I can't organize the pictures, they just show up at the bottom of the post. So here is smattering of pictures. Hoping to figure out the Blogger issues so my blog posts can be more organized.

Pictures as follows: Fall fun by the river, Halloween, Addison and Morgan in their clubbin clothes, Eli dressed as Ariel, more fun at the park and their first day of school
