Thursday Thanks Tank #146

I had this wordy (lovely detailed) post planned. And, then, the day got away from me.

I have a thankful heart today.

Here are somethings that I am thankful for:

Christmas cards. I love sending them almost as much as I love getting them. Let me know if you want my address.
Christmas crafts. Tonight was craft night at school. The kids had so much fun making crafts.
Christmas cookies. I've tried two (no, three) new recipes recently. Yum.
Santa's Closet. Each year my kids get to shop at "Santa's Closet" at school. They buy (gently used) items to give to family members. They get extremely excited about getting and giving gifts. It is so sweet.
Christmas lights. My parents lovingly insisted that I put up Christmas lights on the house. I love, love, love seeing them each night.
Pictures of my kids. I take way too many pictures. I love every single picture. I love taking pictures of my kids. Here's a picture I didn't take: The Owen Kids
Safe field trips. My Peanut Allergy kid went on a field trip this week. He was covered in prayer by his Momma.

I am thankful for so much more... but I need to get some sleep.

Thanks for posting - I really enjoy reading these!
I'm hoping to get my Christmas cards started this weekend (email me your address!), get the tree and lights up, and really get into the season.
Hope you have a great day!

I think right now, I am most thankful for househunting trips!
