Thankful for some small things

>> Saturday, November 1, 2008

Driving to Trader Joe's this morning, Lucas asked me "is today more halloween?" I guess he had fun! :) This launched us into a discussion of the fun things in November and about the first Thanksgiving. I am trying to tell the story of the first Thanksgiving (Lucas LOVES stories) and I realized that besides it involving Pilgrims and Indians and the sharing of food, I didn't know many of the details of the story. I am going to have to brush up on that or get a book or something. But even though my story details were fuzzy, I think I got my point across- that we have so much to be thankful for and we should take the time to express that thankfulness to God. I was preaching that to myself just as much (or more) as to my eagerly listening toddler.

So in honor of that, here are a few things I am thankful for today:

My date with Lucas today to the train restaurant: Caden stayed with Hubby so Lucas and I could have a fun lunch together at one of his favorite places. We laughed and danced to the music and had a really great time. It was refreshing, for us both.

A big win for my Gators- big in numbers and in significance. I only got to watch the first half and the last 5minutes but the outcome was AWESOME!! It puts us back in the national title hunt, almost.

Some new bloggy friends met through the Bloggy Giveaway Carnival:
Here are the winners of my giveaways- Free Peapod Groceries go to Fivewinks and my beautiful, red, festive ring sling goes to Piece of Me. Congratulations to the winners and thank you to all who visited and entered. I hope you come back sometime and visit again.

For the launch of my new BabyLove Slings Fall Collection.... details tomorrow along with some special savings as we celebrate fall and get ready for the holidays.

These are just a few things I am thankful for today. Hubby and I just rearranged the living room (I need a change every so often) and now I am off to bed. Blessings to you all!
