Things I'm Thankful for This Year

A smiley girl who keeps us laughing and on our toes!
(Last week, she ran away from my sister at Barnes & Noble.  Elisabeth found her with the trains and told her she couldn't play with them because she ran away from her.  Eliana told Elisabeth: "That okay.  My mommy bring me here tomorrow to play with the trains." Wow.)

 My little boy who is growing up so quickly! (Three weeks today and you've already rolled from your tummy to your back twice... I'm in trouble.)

A sweet boy who's had a hard time adjusting to having his schedule turned upside down by the arrival of his brother.  (But who couldn't love him more... he spends great chunks of time watching his baby.)

This guy... who's not afraid to do diapers or help with getting up in the middle of the night (in spite of the fact that he's going to school and taking a couple of really hard courses this semester).  And who is also well known for his ability to swaddle a kid better than anyone.

Thank you, Jesus, for my sweet family.  Even in the middle of trying or tiring times... they bring such joy!
