Thankful Thursday

I'm following in the footsteps of my pal Esther and thinking about all I'm grateful for today, this week and this life. This week has been a hard one for a lot of us, and sometimes we forget to look around and realize ALL the precious gifts that life has given us. My most important being family.

Last weekend was a busy one, with party after party after party; and throw in an extra toddler (we babysat my cutie pie nephew for the day) and well things were just straight up crazy. But in the BEST possible way. I attended my first ugly sweater party, and it was so much fun! The hubs wore a woman's sweater and decided to accessorize with his very own ta-tas. Quite the goofball my guy, but God I love him!
Here's the whole fam, minus a few at the end of the night:

After we left we decided to drive around with the kids to see all the pretty houses lit up for Christmas, this one was our favorite; when you pulled up you set your radio to a certain station and the lights lit up according to whatever song was on, SO NEAT!!!

Afterwards, we headed home - got the kids in their PJ's (well sorta) and put in a Christmas movie for them to watch - Santa Paws 2 - which if you haven't seen it, IT IS ADORABLE! Just what these little guys needed after a long fun filled day!! It didn't take them long to pass out cold!

Sunday little miss woke up and wondered outloud "Where'd E go?" How sweet!
We spent the day playing cars, and snuggling, which honestly is my idea of heaven.

So when I get myself in a funk, which seems to be a lot these days, I'm gonna take a step back, and think of this weekend, and all the things I have to be truly grateful and turn that frown upside down!
