27 Days of Thankfulness, Days 18, 19, 20, & 21

I am thankful for healthy children. I watched My Sister's Keeper the other night and just cried and cried. It takes such strength and courage to be able to deal with illness on such an extreme level. I know you do not choose to have to deal with sickness and death, it comes to you. I am still grateful for my children's health and pray God will give me the strength and comfort to handle whatever life throws my way.

I am thankful for baby Ethan, all 28 lbs. 13 oz. of him!

I am grateful for Joann's 50% off coupons that Kyra and I "stole" when I visited Ohio this past Labor Day...I've used the heck out of them! Used one today to buy some $12 a yard fabric for $6...I only needed 1/2 a yard, but still....oh, and wait til you see what I needed that fabric for!!!!

I am thankful for Jenn posting a recipe for a poinsettia sipper drink on her good eats blog last year and for me printing it out. It is SOOOOO GOOOD...I am glad I made it to go along with Ethan's fancy (for me :) birthday dinner...more to come on his birthday next week, when I have more pictures.Now, if only I have the lovely pitcher to put it in, instead of a plastic one, I'd be REALLY thankful :)

(Oh, and doesn't the folding chairs and funky green ones really add to the loveliness of the evening? I thought so...esp. when Chunky Monkey figured out he could make the chair fold up WITH HIM STILL IN IT!)

4 Words to brighten my day:

I would love to see My Sisters Keeper, but first I have to make a costco run for kleenex...I know I will need more than one box. I cry in the Sylvan Learning commercials, LOL. Don't tease me k?

The zebra runner really makes the table pop! And the banner is super cute- but you know that already.
