Giving Thanks in 2012

Life has been flying by! 2012 has been quite a year and we still have another month to go:) I have a lot to be thankful for this year. For one, being a four year old is pretty much awesome. Sure, I have my rough times but really I think this age is super fun and exciting.....

Another awesome thing that we are thankful for is that Daddy found a new job in March of this year that he LOVES and it allows Mom to continue to be at home with me. On top of that, Daddy officially graduated from college in June. It was a long process and hard to do while looking for work and being a dad and husband but he did it- with honors nonetheless!!!

I am also very thankful for my Kia cat (aka Purrr-Kia because of her seemingly constant purring). Even though she has thrown our feline family into a tailspin after 8 years of living together in a happy family of 3 boys, we all love her so much (especially when she looks like this:)

I am so thankful for my preschool and all of my wonderful friends. We were not sure how afternoon school would go this year because I am still a napper but it has been just fine! I look forward to going each day, except for Friday when I get to spend the whole day with mom:)

I love all of my friends but I have a very special place in my heart for Eliana. She has been coming over to hang out after school and I am very thankful for that!

This year for Thanksgiving my Auntie Crystal was here (and for Halloween as well) and that made the day so extra special. When we sat down for dinner and talked about Thanksgiving and what it means I said quite simply (and beautifully:) "Thanksgiving is all about family". Well said indeed. I hope that everyone is enjoying the holiday season and takes some time to be thankful for family, because that really is what it is ALL about.

(Please excuse the absolutely pathetic photos from Thanksgiving, Mom is completely off her game, she did not even get a photo of the table with food, just the beautiful flower arrangement that Dad sent to her for the special day:)
