Giving thanks today

I am so thankful for lots of things not only today but every day of the year. I feel like I am the most blessed person in the whole world.

Here are a few things I am thankful for:
1. My family. I wish everyone had the family I have. We really are a tight knit group and I think that has helped me become the person I am today. I only hope my kids will turn out the same way.
2. My husband who never asks where's dinner or do I have any clean underwear (he knows to check the dryer)
3. My kids who brighten my each and every day.
4. Being able to give back.
5. Getting to spend another year with my grandparents.
6. My dad's strength that helps him recover from his heart surgery.
7. Modern technology that helps us stay in touch with friends and family.
8. The friends we have made in Newfoundland for opening their arms to us.
9. Ashley's great personality that helps her fit right in.
10. Baby Einstein and playrooms
11. My creativity that I get from my mom.
12. Hot tea, yes I said it HOT tea. It is something you get used to when it's cold outside.
13. Lily's laugh, she has a way of making you forget all about your moment of stress with just her laugh.
14. Preston's smile, anytime you look at him he just gives you a smile that lights up his whole face.
15. Ashley's sincerity, she is such a sweet and caring person
16. Mom and daughter (Ashley) moments
17. Airplanes to bring us home
18. My husbands ambition to do more in life
19. Cameras that capture every too cute moment
20. This wonderful life I have been given!
