I'm Thankful!!

It's not Sunday but I'm still Thankful! Our weather has been so great I couldn't pull myself away from my garden. Even now as I type this I am longing to run outside, but the indoor chores are on the list for today. Maybe if I hurry through them I can still go outside and play, (hehe)


This Friday and Saturday our friends Melinda and Rich (Em's Godparents) invited us down to their beach house. It's so beautiful there and all the kids just run wild! Miss Em loves the beach and sitting in the water. And of course all the attention she gets from everyone. I'm so thankful for their generosity.



Thankful for some special guests who are coming on Friday!!! I'm not saying who... you'll just have to wait!

Thankful our house didn't go up in smoke last Friday night! After we got home from the beach, we all went to sleep. Peter fell asleep watching TV. He said he awoke to some big, loud sound, followed by a really strange burning smell. He said he almost went back to sleep thinking he was dreaming, but the smell was too bad to ignore. Well he looked down at the front door and the outlet was all burned and smoking. We really have no idea what happened. Peter thought it might have been lightening but there is really no sign of that.

And I'm thankful that MOST of the troops pitched in on Sunday and helped with some much needed weeding and yard work. And all were rewarded with ice cream at night.

Enjoy the rest of the week!!!

Life will calm down soon, I promise...and then in return, we will get our beautiful babies together for a playdate.
Still no surgery date, but I will be pushing for that today and then we will know better for about when we can get together!

You sound like me...I HATE being inside...and often try to figure out ways to do what needs to be in the house outside. Like taking paperwork out to the porch...just to be outside...cause before long its gonna' be snowing here again and at that thought I downright shudder. ugh

Your beach house trip looks wonderful...can we come next time??

I'm loving summer, I just wish we lived close to the ocean, the beach is our favorite!

Yikes! So glad that he found the smoke before it turned into something worse.

Love the beach pictures! I wish our weather would cooperate. Just entirely too hot! 100 degrees and add the humidity that makes it feel like 110~ Hot and sticky.
