Appreciative...


Wow, I'm not sure why, but this has just turned out to be one of those sort of mellow days when you're thankful for the many things you have in your life. It started off with a great cuddle in bed with Kyle after he wanted to get up before 6am (yikes!) and George suggested he come and cuddle with me. Well, he laid right on top of me and gave me a big bear hug! Not a bad way to wake up really.

Got up and Kyle had some breakfast and I did a couple of things on the computer. Kyle wanted to cuddle on the sofa, so we did that and had a little chat. He just makes me laugh all the time with things he comes out with these days. Nathan got up and had some breakfast too and then we just played around in the living room.

Tracy worked from home today and let Sophia sleep in a bit, so they didn't come over until about 8 - Tim's coffee in hand! Yeah! We had a little visit before she was off to get some work done and we had some more playtime. Nathan had a morning nap and before I knew it, it was lunch!






Sophia went to bed after lunch and the boys and I went outside and played on the swing set and in the sandbox. Kyle asked me to fill up his water gun and then wanted me to shoot him with it as he ran back and forth, but I'm a better shot than he thinks, so he ended up soaked. Think they were both pretty tired by the time they laid down, so everyone's napping for a bit now! Yeah me!

Still have some cards I did the other night that I need to take pictures of and I hope to do a layout or 2 today and I'm feeling inspired!

Just seems like one of those days when I've been attuned to the many little things and able to be thankful for all of them! What "little thing" are you thankful for today?

Cheers,
Colleen

Hi Colleen, great post! One little thing I'm thankful for today is lots of rain after quite a dry spell! It smells great outside this afternoon :)Enjoy the rest of your day!

Ahhhh, Colleen, take advantage of all those cuddle moments. As they grow up they get few and far between. I miss them. Sounds like you guys had a wonderful day.
One little thing I'm thankful for today is that I'm finally going to get my Remicaid treatment today. I have not been able to get it since February. Hope you and the kids have a great day.
