A friend told me that she heard that people that write down what they are thankful for daily are happier people.

I am thankful every day that we have him in our life. Happy 30th birthday old man!

I am so thankful for so many things... Our dinner turned out wonderful. We had hilarious conversations with my sister, her boyfriend, and my mom. I am sure you can tell from my thankful posts that I have amazing friends and family, and a great job. I am so blessed.
I thought I would see if Bear was thankful for anything... I didn't think she would grasp the concept but I told her "Mommy is thankful for Bear, Daddy is thankful for football.. What are you thankful for?" She's not even two so I was pretty impressed with what she told me she was thankful for... she told me without hesitation... "CAKE!" I love that kid!

Of course of all holidays even though it is my husbands birthday... I have a ton of desserts and NO CAKE! Way to ruin the kids Thanksgiving! :o)
