Thankful Thursday

1. Snow. Snow? Yes, snow. Today. Odd, isn't it? Something very strange about the blooming trees, GREEN grass and snow. Hmmmm.

2. Son #1's wrist IS NOT broken. Although we thought it might be. Thank heavens for x-rays and kind doctor friends.

3. Birthday parties.

4. Camping trip plans - the Coach and the five oldest - Saturday morning. They are so excited!

5. Spring Break next week. Ahhhhhh.

6. A warm, cozy home. That's "almost" picked up and and "almost" clean. That's about as close as it gets, Folks.

7. The most wonderful in-laws in the world - who are joining us for dinner tonight.

8. A quiet weekend ahead with only THREE kids. Wow.

9. Little Man's daily expanding vocabulary. Keeps us laughing! Newly added: Popcorn. Too funny!

10. Daughter is doing well with the new cast (last Friday). It's PINK. Covered in signatures of family and friends.

11. Books. Been trying to read more for fun. So nice.

12. Kids who LOVE to read. We have a big reading party every night. Daughter #6 is really getting the hang of it (she's 5) and everyone older than she is reads voraciously. Almost every night the Coach and I have to MAKE them quit reading and go to sleep. Wonderful.

13. Life is good. I'm really thankful for that. I don't want to take it for granted.

By the way, did you know that the wise men brought Baby Jesus, "Gold, Frankenstein and Myrrh?" (as read by Daughter #5)

Happy Thursday!

Hey lady! Just wanted to say hi. And I'm not sure if you are a fiction girl at all when it comes to reading, but if so, my friends and I started a book club blog. It's Kinda fun! I always enjoy reading what's going on with the Troops! :)

Since getting the Wii reading has taken a back seat. But now that we let them read in bed, it is starting to pick up again.

Love the list.

So what is on the agenda for Spring Break? Is that a good time to get together.

One more thing. What is with the broken thing streak? First the nose, then the arm, and now the wrist. Stop now!
