Thankful Thursdays

I have decided that each Thursday this month I will write about about all things I am thankful for. Some will be silly and funny, some will be serious and heartwarming, but they will all be things that I am VERY thankful for. I will do 26 things since Thanksgiving falls on the 26th this year.

I invite you to join in with me and do your own Thankful Thursdays!

1. Digital Cameras: I am so thankful for digital cameras. I can take a picture, hate it, press the delete button. Take 371 of the same thing and then erase all the non-perfect ones. I also have a budding photographer in Mini #1. That boys loves to take some pictures, so I let him have free reign and then just delete the ones I don't wish to savor for eternity.

Case in point...he got camera happy with the pumpkin goo while carving jack-o-lanterns. He isn't much on playing in the goo, so he was the photographer and then jumped back in the for the design/carving. Do I deprive my child from his love of cameras? No, I let him take the 45 pictures of pumpkin goo and then delete when he isn't looking.

Digital cameras=VERY THANKFUL!

2. Holiday music. I heart all of the holiday songs. I play them constantly during the holiday season and they just make me smile everytime. "Have a holly jolly christmas...", "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas...", etc. It is also such a fun and wonderful sound to hear Mini #1 belt out a few holiday tunes. I'm pretty sure "Jingle Bells" will live on as the favorite...last year he would get confused on what part he was on and just keep repeating himself.

3. Freedom. I am so thankful that people have the freedom in this country to wear a kermit the frog long sleeve shirt, black corduroy mini skirt, red scarf, and knee high "combat boots" to the ZOO with CHILDREN. I am also so very thankful to have the freedom to think they are beyond crazy and give them weird looks through my sunglasses.

4. The Minis. I mean seriously, I will bring them up a few times this month I'm sure. I just love these little munchkins so much. They make me smile, laugh, and cry with joy each day. They are pretty darn cute too.

Happy Thankful Thursday. Wonder what next week's installment will bring. :)

  1. Love the idea of sharing things to be thankful for. I think that digital cameras are a God-send! I've gotten some wonky pictures before & it is so nice to delete them without anyone else having to see them.

  2. What a fantastic idea... I will jump on the thankful Thursday bandwagon with you. After my last post, I need to be more thankful.

  3. Great Post. And we are thankful for your wonderful posts + YOU!!

  4. Oh I am soooooo thankful for digital cameras! Mainly because every picture I take has my thumbprint on it!!!

  5. Digital cameras are such a great thing!

    And I can't stop laughing about #3!

  6. I keep meaning to do this. Next week! Love it!

  7. Oh Christmas music! My top two albums are Andy William's Christmas Album (it's like the original one) and Jane Monheit's holiday album. SO GOOD!


How I love comments...thanks for stopping by and sharing what you are thinking. Cheers!
