Day 333

Today I am grateful that I feel a little bit better, after being sick for over a week really sucks! I did take a picture everyday but most of them aren't very good and today I am too tired to go put them all up, hopefully soon!

I hope everyone is doing well and that you had a happy thanksgiving :)

Day 322

Today I am grateful for sleep! And even more grateful that I got a nap today!!!

Day 321

Today I am grateful for yummy healthy food!
I am doing an 8 week healthy challenge with my dad and sister in law. Basically you exercise 30 minutes 5 times a week, eat 5 servings of fruits and veggies everyday (3 should be veggie) drink lots of water no treats and no eating late at night. It hasn't been too bad so far, and I love the healthy habits!

If you click on the picture it will take you to my flickr page and you can see the notes on the photo of what I put in it!

Day 318

Today I am grateful for our church and all of our wonderful friends we have there. But I am especially grateful my Savior Jesus Christ and his gospel.

Day 317

Today I am grateful for my wonderful husband. He works so hard for our family, he is patient and kind and he loves me unconditionally! Plus he is the best daddy in the world.

Example of his awesomeness: Today I volunteered us to help a family rake some leaves. Well he ended up doing 90% of the work while I took pictures and played with the kids, and he didn't complain even once. Yup, he is a keeper :)

Day 315

Today I am grateful that I am able to stay home and take care of these two wonderfully crazy red heads. And I am glad that my big red head is willing to go to work everyday for our family. Also I am grateful that the kids will be cute for the camera and give hugs with a bribe of a sucker :)

Day 314

Today I am a little sad because we had to say good bye to some of our friends that are moving. We have known them for over three years. And the best part, 2 of their three kids have red hair just like mine! So for now, my little family will have the token red heads.
I am grateful today for the wonderful friends I have in NY! They have become my pseudo family since both my and hubby's family live over 2000 miles away. I don't know what I do with out them. So thank you my NY family!!!

Here are a few more because they were being so cute and funny!

blowing kisses

giving hugs...

And this one just cracks me up!  Too cute :)

Day 312

Today I am grateful for snow, I think. I guess this is what I get when a couple of days ago I said I prefer it snow than rain if it is going to be cold, haha. Either way it really was beautiful and fun to see the kids get so excited!

Day 311

I am grateful that I was able to attend a wonderful university on a full volleyball scholarship. Today we went down for one of the last home volleyball games of the season and had a reception with other alumni after. It was great to see some of my friends/past team mates. And especially to go visit my old stomping grounds in the Bronx, where I lived for 5 years!

night time musing

I am musing today over at the mortal muse blog.  Come over and say!

Day 310

This picture is all messed up technically and such, but I still love it! Oh this little girl melts my heart! This was taken outside through the window looking into our kitchen.

Today I am grateful for a wonderful home that shelters us and keeps us warm. A kitchen were we can gather together, toys to play with and beds to sleep!

Day 309

Today I am grateful that my little man quickly learned how to use the potty, but also can now get on and off all by himself. The only bad part about it is that he got up from his nap at least 10 times to "go potty" because he knows it is the only way I will let him get out of bed, haha. Sneaky kid.

The quality isn't the best. I went upstairs to see what he was doing, then hurried back downstairs to get my camera and realized I still had the telephoto on, and it was super dark except the window light! I think my shutter was at 1/13 and still a half a stop underexposed. Thank goodness for lightroom!!!

Day 305

Happy Bench Monday from the top of Mt. Greylock in Massachusetts (the highest point in the state)

My dad has a goal to hike all the high points in the United States. While he was visiting we went to Mass to visit Mt. Greylock, luckily it was a drive up which made it the easiest hike I have ever done :)

Oh man it was freeeeezing!

Edit:  I am going to participate in 30 days of gratitude.  Today I am grateful for my dad and that he took time to come visit from Utah!

Day 304

getting ready to trick or treat!
