Thursday Thanks Tank #124

Today's Thanks Tank List is a simple list of happy moments in my day:

The coffee was already brewed and in the coffee pot when I got up this morning.

I put my daughter's hair in pigtails this morning. She looks adorable with her hair in pigtails.

Mid-morning I made cinnamon rolls. I didn't tell anyone I was going to make them. My boys came bounding down the stairs, saying, "Cinnamon rolls, cinnamon rolls, We knew it: CINNAMON ROLLS!"

My kids and I sat around the table playing "Guess what animal I am thinking of". One person would think of an animal and then let the others ask yes or no questions until they got the answer right. We all took turns. Everyone had fun. The game went on and on until my oldest stumped us all. Turns out, he was thinking of Avatar ("which is an animal in Avatar world" - and no, he hasn't see the movie).

A friend of mine stayed at the house with my napping 2 year old so I could take the boys to see a OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science and Industry) planetarium exhibit sponsored by our local library.

I cleaned up my kitchen today and then didn't cook dinner. My husband was willing to come home, pack up the kids, and head out for dinner. We took the kids out to a Pizza place + playland. It was a fantastic night.

The house is quiet. My boys, my man, and my little girl are all asleep.

Each day has blessings in it.
Today was a good day.
