Thanksgiving Thursday



For those of you that don't know what Thanksgiving Thursday is, it is the one time during the week where you stop and basically count your blessings. Even if you've had one of those weeks, I promise you can find at least one thing to be thankful for, no matter how big or small.

I know it has been a month since my last post, but more are coming, I promise!

This week I am thankful for...

  • Being able to see Scott in 21 days! His time in Shanghai has been great, but we are very much ready to have him home.
  • Aaron who is having the time of his life at camp.
  • Jillian who amazes me daily.
  • My parents who are spending a few weeks with me to help hold down the fort. If they were not here I'm not sure camp would have happened for either kiddo this summer.
  • Family all around us.
  • Texts with my sister that end with the phrase "I'm going to smack you."
  • Happy mail from my niece.
  • Coffee...lots of coffee.
  • A community that bands together and doesn't divide. 
  • My running buddy.
  • Daycare at the gym.
  • Trainers that call you out when you slack.

Catching up...again...

We have had a lot going on lately and I have not had a chance to sit down and write. Here's a quick recap of what has been going on...

We went to Flower and Garden.


I love checking out the gardens every year and this year Jill really took an interest in the gardens and has decided to start her own.

Uncle Rich came to town for a visit!


It's been a while since we had Rich over and all four...okay, maybe three, kids were excited to see him.

The kiddos made their first communion.


I cannot believe they are old enough for this. It was a beautiful day and I am so thankful of everyone that came out to be with us.

My parents partied hard on Cinco de Mayo.


Not really, but before my Mom even had a margarita she grabbed me and said, "You have to take our picture with those!"

We spent an awesome weekend with my parents.


I love being with my Mom on Mother's day and am always thankful when their trips line up with that.

We went to the Invictus Games.


The games were amazing. We were able to see some of the track and field events before it got too hot to handle. Aaron quickly became a fan of USA team captain, Will Reynolds.


I cannot even put into words everything we saw. The camaraderie displayed by these athletes and their families was truly inspirational.

Finally, and most importantly...


I can still sit in the bucket seat I've had since childhood! 

Stay tuned for more, or start taking bets on how long it will be until I blog again.

It's Time to Play Catch Up

I have been really bad about updating with what we have been up to, so here is a quick run down of what has been happening the past few months...

The flu hit our house...

Jill was the only one who was hit with the flu and she was down for an entire week. The poor kiddo was miserable. 

My nephew Avery came to town to play baseball. Aaron and I were able to catch a double header.


Aaron loved being at the field all day and meeting some of the other players, but obviously Avery is his favorite. 



Speaking of baseball, that started up too.


We also lost a couple of teeth...


We raced our pinewood derby cars...


We made our first diorama (YAY!)


We ran a 5k by the lake as a family...


Scott was called every name under the sun while umpiring and these signs were put up as a result...


I made cheesecake for the first time...


My honey and I also visited an amazing wine bar for a fun night out...


We went on some fun family adventures including a bowling day...


But most of all we are having fun...



Now that we are caught up, I will try to be better about posting.
