Thankful for MOMENTS

This time of year many of us start to think about what we are THANKFUL for.. Yesterday I had a GREAT run with Jill (will share tomorrow), then we brought lunch to my Mom and Tall Brother because they are working at the Puyallup Rock and Gem show at the Puyallup Fair. If you live local go check it out great place to purchase very unique gifts. Little Stud #2 was fussy to say the least. At the Rock show he repeated "I WANT TO GO HOME!" Over and over.. Embarassed Mom, Check.. I could not get him to calm down or be quiet. It was very apparent that he got up too early and there was no way to get him to calm down. So we hugged Mom and headed out.

I was TIRED but we had to go grocery shopping, we had nothing in the house. URGH!! Tall Mom does not like grocery shopping, AT ALL! We nearly forgot our reusable bags, but I ran back to grab them. I set the bags next to Little Stud #2 and he rested. PHEW no repeat of the MONSTER at the Rock Show. Speed shopping, spending way too much, I tend to do that when I shop hungry. I looked down and this is what I saw...
Can you say ADORABLE??? This is a MOMENT I am very Thankful for... a gentle reminder that there is peace and joy everywhere. Funny, he woke up just after we had loaded all of the groceries in paper bags...nice timing buddy...oh well the bags acted as a nice pillow..

  • Today I am off to CELEBRATE the upcoming birth of the my close friend KT's TWINS due in February.. I will play photographer, relax and ENJOY seeing baby boy and girl cuteness.

HAPPY SUNDAY!!

I was actually planning on going to the gem fair, but my hubby would criticize "when is the last time YOU made anything with all those beads and stones?"
