Giving Thanks

I'm thankful for our family's health and happiness.

I'm thankful for our immediate neighbors, who are some of most trustworthy people, and I'm so glad to call them friends.

I'm thankful for our little town of Gardner, and the family atmosphere it provides and the opportunities for our children that it provides.

I'm thankful for our group of Gardner friends...Flageolles, McAtees, and McCartys...they are our family.

I'm thankful for our group of friends in Kansas City...Janes, Bonawitzs, Hafners...we've been friends for a long time...we may not see each other very often even though we all live in the same metro area...they are our family.

I'm thankful for all of our friends back home (Marquette, Lindsborg, Kingman, Topeka) and all over the United States (OK, TX, MS, name a few)...we definitely don't get to see each other enough.

I'm thankful for Heather and JCPRD...they provide loving and caring and fun environments for our kids to enjoy. We trust them with so much!!

I'm thankful for our jobs...especially in this economy. A lot of changes have taken place this year, and I know I gripe about a lot of things, but I'm very grateful to have a job.

I'm thankful for my co-workers...we've spent 8 hours a day with each other for 9 years or so, and they're still some of my closest friends.

I'm thankful for our parents and family...there's too much to thank all of them for.

I'm thankful for my boys...they love me matter how cranky I am.

I'm most thankful for my husband. He loves me no matter how much I take out on him. I love you so much, Matt!!

I'm thankful for Jesus Christ our savior.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

October Recap

It definitely doesn't feel like November around here. I think I brought back the Gulf Coast weather with me from Mobile...warm and humid.

I had one more trip to Mobile three weeks ago. This time it was so much easier being away from my boys. I ventured out a couple nights to different restaurants. The first night I ate at Los Rancheros...according to Trip, it's the best Mexican restaurant in Mobile. It was good!!! Quick, cheap and good!! Reminded me a lot of Chapalas here in Gardner.

On Wednesday night, I drove down to Mobile Bay and found a seafood restaurant right on the water....Ed's Seafood Shack. I ate the biggest shrimp I've ever seen, and I saw the sun set on the water.

We all went trick-or-treating twice. We went to BooBash on the Thursday before Halloween. Then we invited everyone over for chili on Halloween, and then us moms took the boys trick-or-treating around our neighborhood. Matt & Steve stayed home to hand out candy...and to watch the KSU/OU game.

Now we're just trying to make our Christmas lists, do homework, make holiday plans, chase Collin around, etc. Our crazy life, huh?!
