Thankful Thursday, Week 129

This week I am especially thankful for, in no particular order, because it's late and I'm tired... haha...

~The smell of pumpkins cooking.
~Spiced pumpkin seeds and pumpkin muffins.
~Planning our trip to SC in just two weeks :)!
~The way Josiah is always clapping his hands together :). (When not throwing a temper tantrum. Hahaha!)
~Flowers on the table.
~All the little special touches my family put on my birthday celebration after Daddy got home.
~The chipmunk that has been visiting our yard lately. He is so cute!!!
~Josiah's starting to wave.
~Watching a spider take down her web- I know spiders are kind of gross, but it was actually a neat experience. This particular spider has been camping outside of our window for weeks- right in the middle. Until Andrew had knocked down her web half a dozen times, and she got smart and moved to the upper left corner that he can't safely reach. But it was rainy yesterday, and I guess she decided to do fall cleaning while the bugs weren't out, because she was taking it down. She would roll it up like a carpet, and then bite it all at once, or wrap it with thread to keep it out of the way... and she had a safe line the whole time, because whenever she bit (or picked... I'm not sure) a main string it would send her bouncing back. It was really quite interesting!
~Ruffles piling up behind the sewing machine as I work :).
~Abbi and Emmi's friendship with my friend's little sister. I have loved watching them get to know each other through skype :). And interacting with her and her sister and the rest of her siblings myself, of course :).
~The Fruits of the Spirit :).
~The likes that the Pleven Project has gotten. They are still far from their goal, but they are getting there!
~Peter's love for "oatmeal cookies". A.K.A., my chocolate cookie overnight oatmeal. Loves that stuff. He asks for it every morning... the rest of us like variety. Haha!
~My concordance.
~My KBR magazine that got here a few days ago :)! We are too busy right now preparing for our trip for me to do much reading other than bible study, but it will be a wonderful addition to our trip next week :)!
~Josiah's realizing my glasses are NOT part of my face... the baby actually started crying. It was hilarious! And, yes. I am mean.
~The squirrel that ended up in Abbi's frog tank... hahaha!

"Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice."

  1. We are getting to see family in upper SC, but we're not sure yet that we are going to make it down to Columbia area :(. I'll let you know when we work everything out... I'm so sorry, we really thought that we were going to be in Columbia earlier this year, but several things have changed, and it's not positive it's going to work out... I miss you so bad, I wish we knew that it would work :(. Mommy is looking into it, but can't promise anything...
    Hugs, Bubbles and Blessings,
    Bri :)

  2. Aw, okay :) Hopefully something will work out but if not, that's okay too :)
