Thankful Thursday

This week I am thankful for:
1. The Twilight movie that will be coming out in 14 days! Can't wait :) to go see it and fall in love with the real life movie Edward instead of the only in my imagination book Edward!

2. In just half a year... literally 6 months... my husband will officially be a UK graduate. I am so proud of him and the hard work he has done. I believe it is pretty incredible that he is able to balance being a student, intern, husband, and father. And if I do brag for a moment- he does an amazing job of each of these things!! I can't wait to see him graduate and start his career. :)

3. How could I not be thankful for a post-nap hairdo like this? I love my little --snot dripping, teeth hurting, fit throwing, candy eating-- Ivy!

** A little Ivy humor to go along with this silly picture-- Ivy has had a bad cold (now sinus infection) for about 3 weeks. She has been coughing and had a runny nose and you can tell she is just tired of it. She has learned to stick her fingers in her nose when it won't quit dripping (nasty... I know). At Panera we were telling her "shhhhh" because she was talking on volume 10 (the typical Ivy talk) and she thought we had our finger in our nose too. She immediately stuck her fingers (plural) in her nose and persisted to do her own "shhhh." It was hilarious! Kids are the best medicine for any bad day- they are so funny without even meaning to be!


  1. I must say I am very proud of my son in law! He is a great husband and daddy.

  2. Why in the heck did that show up anonymous--who else could it be? Crazy!

  3. Oh I feel you on the grossness- the slobbery, fussing, snottiness, etc. But you can't help but LOVe it all! :)

  4. First, Greg is the man, hands down. Every day I realize that more and more. It has yet to be determined if he even has one bad quality, outside of itching the nose in nervous situations. haha.

    Second, Ivy is adorable. And it may just be me because I've seen you, Sarah, fresh off a night's sleep many a time, but Ivy resembles you big time there. She has Greg's features, but she has your "look." I may be wrong, and if so, I will be embarrassed.

  5. ivy is cute just up from a nap. :)

  6. I love the "just woke up from a nap look." Ivy looks adorable in that picture....I really need to jump on this Twilight bandwagon so I can know this Edward everyone is talking about:)

  7. Twilight....ahhhhhh, isn't it the BEST! I am on the fourth book right now, and can't seem to put it down. But then I don't want to finish it because I don't want it to be over....


Thanks for your encouragement as I travel through this season of life called mommyhood!
