Thankful Thursday, Week 100 :)!

Not that all those weeks are filled, but anyway... it's a fun number ;)...
This week I'm thankful for...

~The sight of these little ones playing together...

~And Abbi loving on Peter (who's almost as long as she is ;)...)

~Peter scooting down the stairs as fast as he can get his legs out from under him when he hears the door opening, hoping it's Daddy arriving home :)...
~Maple twist.. and the fact that I did not ruin it yesterday, that was very pleasant and surprising considering my past track record. Of course, I almost burnt the whole batch before I put it in the oven, but that's a whole other story... I put it on the stove to rise (thankfully in a metal bowl!), then went to make supper, and turned the wrong burner on, haha. Thankfully I was able to get the dough out without the burned bread that formed on the bottom coming with it.
~Andrew's desire to clean the garage as a blessing for Daddy.
~This little face... that is looking so much older lately...

~Tents and smiling faces...

~Peter's love of his "Cookie" book (it's actually a cupcake decorating book... but he doesn't know that ;)...)
~Peter's little voice "reading" "Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons" with Tori... too cute :)!
~Clean, organized rooms... 
~...and safety while it happened ;)...
~Projects accomplished, or almost. For one thing, I finished a sewing project that I've been working on for a while. I've also got a good bit done on the blanket... I wish I could have finished it this month, but that's not a big deal... Next time I need to do the stripes just two rows shorter... haha!
~Hymns playing in the house, and Mark 4:28.
~The smell of supper cooking, and Tori's love to keep homemade bread goods in stock to go with it :).
~How much quicker (with less burnt bread, if you believe it...) it is to toast bread on a metal rack in the oven then in the toaster oven... we've outgrown our six slice toaster ;)...
~Mommy's grape nick-knacks that she was able to pull back out.
~Pinecones hanging from pine trees.
~Peter's little feet dangling from the swing.
~Cool air and late afternoon sunshine making the trees a golden color.
~Bethi's new knitting skills. Her first real project will be a dishcloth to use in the kitchen, that should make cleaning the counters more interesting for her, right :)?
~Sleep. Haha :). Goodnight... me exhausted... ZZzzzzz....

"My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord,
and let all flesh bless his holy name forever and ever."

  1. Like I've said about a zillion and four point three times, *cue coo-ey voice* "They are SOOOOOOOO ADORABLE!!!!!!"

  2. And, as I have responded about a zillion and four point three times... "Aren't they?!" :).
    Miss you!
