Giving Thanks

**ETA below

I love my kids...I have the best kids in the whole wide world! (as Love would say "yer the bestest mom in the hole wide werld")

They color together, they play outside together, the watch tv together, they take a bath together when mommy just wants a break! Thanks Zman for always helping your mom and dad and being a great brother...you are always eager to help and even when you don't feel like it you do. When we want to sleep in a little bit on Sunday morning you offer to make your own breakfast...and eggs at that...you wanted daddy to teach you so you could do it yourself.

I am to thankful that no matter what happens or how bad of a day I have or if I am just feeling down; I have the bestest kids and a greatest sexiest hubby who takes care of us all!!! I wuv you guys!!!

PS Also giving Thanks...Alison sent me cute pair of earrings that I won during a "Pay It Forward Give Away". So in keeping with the theme (as I truly believe in Karma)...post a comment giving reasons why you are thankful and I will have Zman and Love draw a name on Friday! Then once you receive your gift; you will need to pay it forward because we need more love and gratitude during these hard times.

Special Note: The gift will not be a gift I made because let's face it folks...I am not crafty nor do I cook...so just be thankful for your present!!!

Also if you post about this "Pay It Forward" giveaway on your blog and leave a comment stating so... well good golly you will get another entry!

**ETA-My son Zman has a blog; he loves Club Penguin...I just checked out his blog today and you have to read the post about his sister and his dog...gosh I could just eat him up. Check him out and show some LOVE!

How great that they are such buds. My brother and I always beat each other up!! I am thankful for David, my family, and all of my blogging friends! I don't get the concept of pay it forward..but if I win I will definitely figure it out. (Is it like, you get a gift from someone then send someone else a gift?)

I just came across your blog and I love it. I will definitely be back. Your kids are adorable, I have 2 girls the same ages as your kids and all they do is fight. It's really nice that yours get along so well. I do have to say, Emerson (my 9 year old) does help alot when Mommy needs a moment.

How sweet.

Hi Rachel,

I hate to answer your question with a question, but what's your threshold for "scary"? In 30 Days of Nights, there were a couple of parts where I jumped. The premise is pretty good, I kind of liked it. But it was really gory!!

(See the comments on my blog about the loincloth)

Solei said...

Rachel! Oh, Rachel!
Where art thou Rachel?!?!

I miss you!
And I have something for you over at my blog... Again!!!

Hope you like it!

Angie said...

I wanna play!!!
I'm thankful for EVERYTHING I have. God has truely blessed me!

Now I'm off to check out Zman's blog.

Look how cute Love is with those golf clubs, her little nose all crinkled up, cutie pie!

Tiffany said...

I don't know if I told you this but I'm so iffy about having children but your posts really help put me in the direction of wanting them. :)
