Thankful Thanksgiving # 17

I am thankful for the food that I have to eat. Many times I take for granted how easy it is to just open the fridge or pantry and have it be full of food. Not a day goes by that I don't get to eat. Many people can not say this.

This is a picture of one of my family's new favorites Poppy seed chicken. It is easy pretty quick and freezes great.

Thankful Thanksgiving # 16

I am thankful for days where I can just stay home and be a Mom to Ellison. Being home with her is so much fun! We play, eat, sleep and snuggle all day long.

Who would not want to stay home with this cute little girl!

Thankful Thanksgiving

Thankful Thanksgiving # 15

(I am playing catch up)

I am thankful for my blog, and what has come of finding other peoples blogs. I love to read other peoples blog. One day my friend Ruthie sent me a link to there blog and after reading it I thought I would start one of my own. I thought it would be a great way for our family and friends that live far away to keep up to date on what is going on in our life.
Through blogging I have meet one amazing person through reading her blog. She happens to live near where I do. I started reading her blog and I could not stop I read the whole thing from the start. I sat for hours just crying as my heart broke for this amazing woman. After reading it I felt like I wanted to reach out to her. We started to email back and forth a few times then we meet for lunch one day. We were at Panera for 3 hours and never ran out of things to talk about. We found out that we had a lot of things in common. We are now are great friends and I feel so blessed to have her in my life. She is such an amazing strong Christian woman. Katie I hope you know how you have touched my life. Here is the link to her blog. I would love for everyone to read it.
There are many blogs that I read every day check them out, I have them listed on my blog.
I am so thankful!

Thankful Thanksgiving # 14

I am thankful for my camera.
I have always loved to take pictures. They are an amazing way to look back and remember a great day or time in your life. Now I have a very sweet little girl to take pictures of each and every day. Pictures can tell a story with no words.

Pictures can last a lifetime.
I have lost both of my Grandma's and now I have pictures of them left. These pictures are so special. I will share these pictures with Ellison someday and tell her all about her Great Grandmas.
I am so excited to someday show Ellison pictures of her when she was a baby and tell her all about what it was like to have her make me a Mommy!

Thankful Thanksgiving # 13

I am thankful for my two amazing grandma's. Both of my grandma have influenced and blessed my life in so many ways. They each have taught me so many things. I have such fond memories of each of the.

Even though I know Ellison will never meet them hear on earth I know they are looking down on her on her all the time. I am so excited to tell Ellison all about them some day.

Thankful Thanksgiving # 12

(this should have posted yesterday)

I am thankful for my job. I get to help people everyday and save peoples lives.
Tomorrow is my first day back to work. I have had 12 wonderful weeks home with Ellison. I would love to stay home full time but financial that is not possible for us right now. I am however going back to work part time instead of full time. So I will have more time at home with Ellison.

New Look for Fall!

I thought that the blog needed a little up date with a new fall look. What do you think?

Thankful Thanksgiving # 10

I am so thankful for where I live. Since I was 6 years old I have had the privilege of living along the beautiful lake shore in West Michigan. I have never lived more than 2 miles from the beach. It is beautiful no matter what season it is. There is something so calming to me about sitting and watching the waves come in a out of the shore.

Thankful Thanksgiving Day # 1

I am a little behind on this, but I wanted to join a lot of my other blog friends in doing a whole month of being thankful.

I am so thankful for my sweet husband. We have known each other for 6 wonderful years. We have been through a lot in the 6 years so many happy times and some really hard times too, but Josh has always been my rock through everything. I know that God placed Josh in my life for a reason and I am so thankful and blessed to call him my Husband.

We have been married for 3 and a half years and I am so excited to keep adding to this number.

I love you Joshua!
