Ten Things & Tiny Talk Tuesday

XBOX Wife Ten Things Tuesday

1. This family that God has blessed me with (it would probably be cheating to list each member individually b/c then I'd only need to think of 4 more things).

2. Tiny Talk Tuesday, which always gives me a smile and a giggle, and has got me thinking about the cute and profound things my kids say each day (thus, taking the focus off the not-so-cute and frustrating moments). This leads me to my submission for Tiny Talk, which is not so much talking this week...

4. My children can and will dress themselves! Meet Shea, almost 3. :) (Don't you just love how she's coordinated the many variations of stripes?! LOL!)

"Look Mom, I Do it My OWN Self!"

5. On that note, I am so very thankful for the new computer. It is a miraculous experience to post on my blog without the computer freezing and losing all my words! It is so fun to have 14 different applications open at once and still be able to navigate through cyberspace. Oh, the joy!

6. The sun is shining and the sky is clear blue! Oh, how I love spring (well, really I LOVE summer, but spring means that 30 degree weather is on it's way)!!!

7. My husband booked his summer vacation time. We get to drive down to Reno to visit his brother, sister-in-law, and 3 great kids - for 2 weeks! Yay!!! Which leads to several other things I'm thankful for, one of which is that...

8. Pat is a hard-working man who provides all that we need and many things we want. I love him more as each anniversary goes by (how is this even possible?).

9. In case you missed it this weekend - Jesus is risen! This isn't some event that happened in history, but a truth of TODAY. Christ lives, and the same power that God unleashed to resurrect His Son is within each of us who call ourselves His.

10. The other part of this weekend - the candy is almost all gone. Which means I can get focussed on my post-baby weight-loss regime, again.

And, since counting has never really been my forte (lol, okay, okay - I simply must add this very important thing I'm thankful for)...

11. I am soooo enjoying this week of no school. The kids and I are just hangin' out, relaxing, having fun. I typically enter into school breaks with an "oh no" attitude, and I am so thankful to the God who answers prayers that He changed my attitude to "I can't wait!" What a joy to have a new perspective.

I am blessed, and I could go on (obviously), but I'll save some for next time!


  1. Hi! I am so glad you found this! You are a very welcome addition to "Ten Things Tuesday", and I sincerely hope that you'll come back again! I look forward to visiting your blog more often ~ it sounds like we have more than a thing or two in common! The theme this week seems to be thankfulness for our hubbies!

  2. don't you love when they dress themselves. LOL. you should have seen Sam when she first started dressing herself. oh and Sarah likes to put her swim suit on backwards, yeah it has a deep cut in the back so her little chi-chi's show when she puts it on backwards! lol.

  3. It's so nice having a new computer that doesn't freeze up! I've had mine a few months now. To answer your question about working out... I really do love it! I have lost 40 lbs. over the last 2 years (see one of my earlier posts) I work out at Lifetime Fitness & just feel so much better after a good workout! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  4. Yes, there is so much to be thankful for. It's nice to meet you- your post met me right where I am today. Thanks.

  5. Awe they sure love to dress. Kai loves to dress herself and well I let her sometimes her Dad gets quite embarrassed but she loves it!

  6. Thanks for your thankfulness post. I agree with Mrs. Brownstone...I think we have several things in common! Have a great day and thanks for stopping by my blog!

  7. So glad your TTT is one of your ten things! I love it too.

    I can't wait to see that image. It just makes me smile when my girls dress themselves!!! Her outfit sounds well "coordinated" ;)

  8. thanks for stopping by my place...can't wait to see the pic of that outfit!!

  9. Great post - thanks for sharing your blessings!

  10. What wonderful things that you have to be thankful for!!! I love it that you let them dress themselves...I have one that ALWAYS says, "I can do it MYSELF!"...okay, girl...you go ahead!! I love it!!

  11. You know, we are having a good week, too. I was dreading it at first, but we have had a lot of fun.

    I'll be checking back in for that pic...
