Thankful Thursday - Edition 11

It's Thankful Thursday!


1. Mississippi Pot Roast - I've shared the recipe before and I make it all the time.  I made it this past week and it was soooooo good.  (Sometimes you can make the same thing over and over again and sometimes it's just better than others.) I am always thankful for a good easy main dish in the crock pot that everyone likes.

2. The snow day - as much as I don't like snow, the snow day we had was nice because the kids were able to sleep in and get back their extra hour and more.  They even went in the next day on a two hour delay.  Although I will say that they were still very hard to wake up on Wednesday even with all that extra sleep. 

3.  The sun - we finally had some and hopefully we are on an upward trend with the temperatures. I'm always thankful for the sun!

4. Date with Dan - I am always thankful for time spent with Dan even if it's just an hour and a half over an appetizer while Sarah is in Confirmation class. 

5. Daylight - I don't like how Daylight Savings Time messes up our sleep for a week but I am always thankful for the extra hour of light at the end of the day!

6. Rescheduled Track Meet - yesterday was cold and windy so I was very thankful they rescheduled the track meet to today. 

7. The concert - Peter was so happy that he got to go to the Sabaton concert.  I'm thankful that he enjoyed it and I'm thankful that my husband took him so I didn't have to!  :)

8. Fresh manicure - I got a manicure yesterday and my mom got a pedicure.  I love freshly painted nails and I'm always thankful to get to spend some extra time with my mom.

9. Carpooling grandparents - My parents are always eager and willing to help me with the kids.  At this stage of the game, that usually means picking them up from or taking them to activities since it's hard for me to be in two places at once.  They don't even mind it when I ask them to do a pick up on the spur of the moment or change the plan even as they are driving to where I had previously asked them to be.  I'm always thankful for my parents and their willingness to help me with whatever I need help with.

What are yo thankful for today?

So many little things to be thankful for which add up to the big things. ;) How awesome to have your parents as back up drivers. Have a great weekend.
