I am thankful...

... I am married to a wonderful man who takes care of me, who is my best friend, with whom I agree on all the important staples in life.

... for an adorable, lovable, healthy little boy with a happy demeanor who is the sunshine in my life every day.

... for the financial stability we've been able to achieve without going into debt or depending upon two incomes.

... for amazing friends who inspire me to be a better person, who are strong and intelligent and who make me laugh.

... for my family who loves me unconditionally and who more importantly love my son fiercely.

... for a healthy body which allows me to bear children.

... for my ability to run (yeah, I should probably get on that) and the joy I've found in doing so.

... for my country and the freedom to make of my life what I will.

... for my Savior who is always there to bring me back from the edge of the precipice, who allows me to "become the miracle."

... I'm also thankful for you.

Happy Thanksgiving!

The last day of fall

Last week my friend and I took our kids to Liberty Park for one last hurrah before it snowed.

Yeah, we give birth to baby models round these parts. They say it's something in the water.

Best buddies

Zach and I joke that Franky hugs Tyke WAY more than he's ever hugged the both of us. Except we're not really joking...

Lazy fall

Sometimes we celebrate Thursdays by bumming around in our pajamas all day long.

But when daddy gets home we take a break from our bumming and go for a little walk.

We inspect the sprinkler heads

And we check out the leaves.

Then we go home and bum around some more.
