Happy 2nd birthday Colie pokie

Happy Happy Birthday Colie Pokie!  We sure do love you!
With all the rush of Thanksgiving...Cole's birthday is a little trickier to coordinate.  We opted for a little impromtu birthday party lunch at Chick fil A.   He liked it!  And especially his big blue cupcake!
I sure love this little boy!  He drives me nuts...but he's adorable!  Those dimples!  He is a blankie boy.  He likes Thomas the train and Buzz Lightyear.  He's got a mind of his own and marches to the beat of his own drum.  I call him "Ka blew". or Stew. I think originally it was Stinker Stew..then that changed to Stewie Cablewie...then Stew or Cablew.  At any rate he likes it...or at least he answers to it! He loves milkshakes and tries to keep up with his brothers!  I can't wait to see what 2 brings!  Happy Birthday my baby boy!

Gratitude mixed with a little stupidity

Today I went to Costco....the day before THANKSGIVING....Was it insane and packed with people?  It's COSTCO in of course it was!  It was PACKED!  I was trying to find a place to sit with my mom and the boys for a quick bite.  It was lunch time and everyone was hungry! And by everyone I mean EVERYONE in Costco! I finally found a table...put my wallet down.  As I placed my wallet down (and please know...I had NO INTENTION of leaving it alone...EVER), I remember thinking that putting my wallet on the table wasn't a good idea.  Then suddenly....I found the PERFECT spot...with a place for all of us PLUS a place to park the cart).  After we all had our lunch and eaten it too....a teenager walks up to me and asks me if THIS was my wallet....
The funny this was...I had been watching that wallet sitting all alone on a table and thought..."what kind of IDIOT leaves their wallet sitting on a table AT COSTCO??!!!"  Not once did it dawn on me that it was MINE!  
So, in a nutshell, I am the idiot who left their wallet all alone on table at lunchtime full of credit cards and the beginning of the Holiday season!  So, THANK you honest teenager for doing the right thing!

Tis the season of Gratitude

After an awesome and SO uplifting day in Church today, I thought it only fitting to have a little Gratitude FHE lesson with the fam.  

Then we put them all together in our "Blessing Basket".  The plan  is to write something we're thankful for each night after family prayers.
Jaden and I spent a few hours cutting out leaves from random leftover scrapbook paper.  
Here's a little sneak preview of what it's looking like.  I can't wait to see it at the end of the month.  So full of leaves of our blessing leaves!  Happy Gratitude month of November!
