Thanksgiving Thursday - Thanksgiving Edition

Every week I list the things that I am thankful for, and since today is Thanksgiving the list may be a little bit longer.

This Thanksgiving I am thankful for:
  • Scott and everything he does for us during the year. He is the sole bread winner and I know how much pressure that is on him. I am thankful for the days he gets up and goes to work when he would rather stay home or do something else.
  • Scott allowing me to have access to the Netflix account so we can watch movies that have more than one word titles and star people other than Vin Diesel.
  • Scott having both Thanksgiving and Christmas off this year. I honestly cannot tell you the last time this happened or if it has ever happened before.
  • Aaron who has the best sense of humor and can always make me laugh, even when I don't need to laugh.
  • Aaron who can give the best hugs when you need them.
  • Aaron who genuinely loves, cares and shows concern for everyone around him. Some girl is going to be very lucky to have him one day in the very very distant future.
  • Jillian who reminds me so much of myself at this age. Sometimes this is a good thing and sometimes this is the thing that nightmares are made of.
  • Jillian who comes up with some of the funniest observations I've ever heard.
  • Jillian who also genuinely loves, cares and shows concern for everyone around her. I would say some boy is going to be very lucky, but he also gets her "stubborn" streak too. It will take a very strong man.
  • My parents who are always there for me when I need them. I am so lucky to have the family that I have and honestly wouldn't change it for anything.
  • My in-laws who are an amazing support system for us. They help us in so many ways and I don't know if I can ever say thank you enough to them.
  • My brothers and sisters who have helped shape into the person I am today. This includes all traumatic experiences that have led to phobias in my life.
  • My sister Tay-Tay (Cathy) who is someone I can always look to for a laugh, or a bitchy comment when I can't think of one. We may not have started out as the best of sisters but I am so incredibly thankful to have her in my life. Not to be super cheesy, but, if you look up sister her picture should be there.
  • My amazing friend Dawn. She's like my sister from another mister, I love her!
  • My friend Jenn who took the kiddos for the day when we were sick. She's an amazing friend in general and I love her dearly!
  • The success I've had at Multiples and More. It has given me so many opportunities and has just been an overall blessing.
  • Having a roof over our heads when so many people are losing theirs. We are blessed and lucky to still be where we are.
  • Missy teaching me how to coupon to the point that I do. It saves us so much money and ensures that we have more than enough food to the point that people can literally shop out of our pantry if need be.
  • Our church family. We are lucky to have found a great group of people in our parish.

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving? Link up over at Multiples and More!
