On the Move

We had to put up baby gates and put outlet covers on all our exposed wall outlets!  Jayden is full on crawling and starting to get into EVERYTHING!  We knew he would not be immobile for long!  Watch out world...He's on the MOVE!

Being Thankful

I'm feeling thankful.  I am thankful for the things that God has given me and I am trying to teach my children to be thankful.

Things I am thankful for:
My salvation
My husband
My 3 great kids
My Parents
My Sister
Good Jobs for Dan and I
A wonderful Babysitter who gives great care to Jayden
The schools that my children are in and their teachers who care about them so much
My my thankful for a warm home and a comfortable space.
Our vehicles so we can get to work.
Dr. it!
Food to eat...we have not gone hungry once this year.
Utilities...seriously couldn't survive without them.
Clothing that is appropriate for the seasons!

I think we in America have a hard time truly being thankful for little things but as I was complaining about needing to clean house I was reminded that there are people who live elsewhere who don't have a house to clean, food to cook or clothes to wash.  God has blessed us with so much EXTRA...beyond the necessities and we so often are not Grateful or Thankful for it.  It is my goal to be thankful for the things that I have and not to worry about the things I don't have.

Someone Stop this Crazy Thing

Just realized that I hadn't posted since before Jaron's birthday so I will be posting a lot of new posts catching everyone up on our life.  I sometimes feel like George Jetson...."Jane Stop this Crazy Thing."
