...It really should be a daily act, not just a holiday that occurs once a year.

Tonight, I'm so thankful for a loving husband who is already so involved in Emmy's life- it means that she already has a great role model.

Tonight, I'm so thankful for a roof over my head, a belly full of frozen custard, and a job- it means my primary needs are being met.

Tonight, I'm so thankful for DVR, the woodburning stove and other luxuries- it means I am not in want.

Tonight, I'm so thankful for the path my life has taken- it means that God is in control.

We had such a fun weekend and Emmy was a trooper. I could count on all fingers and toes how many times we got her in and out of her carseat.
What a blessing to have such a good natured baby. Fingers crossed that she remains this calm and easy going and doesn't become like her mama!!!!!!
