Thankful November {November 8}

Day #8

I am thankful for the fact that I am (reluctantly) a stay at home mom again. I love working, I love meeting people and I love doing a job. But I also love to stay home. We are blessed in the fact that we can afford for me to stay home with the kids, I don’t have to work, the kids don’t have to go into daycare for hours a day. My husband has encouraged me to volunteer or go back to school if I want. So I have pretty much thrown myself into volunteering, I really do love it. As of right now I am now the t-shirt seller at school, am finishing up a big cookie fundraiser at school that will end at our fall fest tomorrow, stepped up to be the president of our family readiness group and started fostering at the humane society. I love it. I have been able to meet a ton of people and it’s nice to feel appreciated and part of something bigger than myself!


Happy Birthday Baby!

So today is my husbands birthday and the poor man has to spend the day away from family or friends out on a ship in the middle of the ocean somewhere. I wish he could be home with us to celebrate.

We love you and wish we could spend this day with you.  I can’t believe this is the 14th birthday that we have spent together (even if we are not technically together)! It’s been a wild ride and I am already plotting next year, when you will be home. We’re gonna do it big!

You have a family that loves you and is thinking of you all day today!

Seriously, my husband is so good looking and doesn’t look a day over 25… I LOVE YOU BABE!
