Happy Thanksgiving...err Easter.....

As I sit here tonight and reflect upon my day, I am so thankful. I got to wake up this morning and make my baby a bottle. I was really heartbroken when I had to stop nursing her because of my exhuastion and her hunger. But I know that in the long run it doesn't matter as long as I still have her here everyday.

I got to wake up this morning and hear my son in the living room playing with all the goodies the Easter Bunny left. I am also thankful that he somehow doesn't remember walking in on me last night as I was putting the baskets together. (????) I'm not sure where he tucked that memory away, and maybe he is playing me now....but he didn't say anything about it. Sure, he's rambuctious and a little crazy. Ok, so we have to fight to keep clothes on him. Actually we've been home for over two hours now and he has yet to undress. That might be a record.

I got to wake up this morning and help my oldest daughter put her eyeshadow on. She just got to start wearing make-up at Christmas and she's still getting the hang of it. Yes, she is one walking ball of hormones, but I am her mother.

Then I got to spend the day with some family. I got to see my grandma and listen to all the great grandkids play together. (I think we only had tears one time) And yes it was from mine! I got to watch Lexi try to crawl. I'm not sure what she thinks she is doing exactly, but it is really cute. She puts her forehead down on the floor and then gets up on both feet and pushes forward.

I got to sit in the passenger seat on the way home and sleep. I heart sleeping, I really, really do. And then when we got home I didn't even have to make dinner. I got to make Lexi some green beans and now I am typing away while she sleeps. I am listening to Clark and the hubs play a video game. I love listening to them play together. Tomorrow it will be back to the daily grind, but for now I will sit and relish in my memories of the day. I'm gonna refer to it as my Spring Thanksgiving!

I hope you had a great Easter day too!


  1. Sounds like you had a very thankful Easter! That's the we should all be viewing our days, with a thankful heart.

    I love hear that you spent the day with your grandma. I missed my grandma so much today! It's our 4th Easter without her, and it still just never feels quite right. We spent the day at my mother's house (which was my grandmother's house, my mom inherited it and now she lives there) and I was surrounded by her memories. Everywhere I went in that house, I felt my grandma there, too. It was both comforting and sad. She used to get such a kick out of being around all of my children, her great-grandchildren. I have nine children, and the only one that she did not get to meet is my youngest who is two years old. I talk about my grandma often to the kids, telling the stories that I grew up with, telling of all my memories with that my kids will "know" her.
