My Thankful List for 2013

Looking back over 2013 I feel very blessed for many things, people and events. Here's some of my tops:

I'm Thankful for my BFF, Christi!!
Christi has been with me through some thick and thin times. Her 3 girls are a blessing to my kids, and her DH and Chris are great pals too. This girl will tell me like it is. I couldn't have asked God for a better companion to storm hell with a water gun with me!

I'm Thankful for fun family camping trips.
This past year has been a blast going camping in our new new to us camper. This is a picture of me trying to help break down the first time. I had to hold the canvas up and pull the pole down all at the same time. Needless to say Meme caught this wonderful crazy shot of me.

I'm Thankful for girl's night out.
With Rosey Posey turning 11 this year and entering that tween stage, I am trying more and more to give her the needed undivided attention and make sure our relationship remains strong through the years. One of the ways we do that is girl's night out. This picture is from a night out with Meme to The Melting Pot.

I'm Thankful for the tree that fell gently on our house.
I know this sounds like a strange thing to be thankful for, but I can not figure out for the life of me why it didn't CRASH through the house. It was like it just gently laid down on the roof. I think the only damage to the house was about 5 messed up shingles. Praise God!

I'm Thankful for my kid's BFFs.
In this age of bullying and peer pressure, I'm so grateful that both of my older kids have BFFs that are from Christian homes and are good influences on my kids.

I'm Thankful for a successful consignment sale season.
Twice a year I load everything up in the car that I can and sell it to buy the next seasons clothes. This year was particularly nice and profitable!

I'm Thankful for kids I can be silly with.
I know that one day, each of my kids will be 'too old' to hang out with mom. Until that time, I'm going to goof off and go crazy as often as I can.

I'm Thankful for Papaw coaching Bubee's first season of baseball.
Let's face it: Coaching 4 year old boys in baseball is harder than herding cats. For that, I am so grateful Papaw was willing to step into the roll of coach to make sure Bubee had a great first year.

I'm Thankful for God keeping the car from hydroplaning into another car.
This past summer, the kids and I were caught in a freak rain shower that quickly flooded the road. We ended up hydroplaning into the curb on a turn (I was going 20 MPH when we hit the curb). While the car would not move, everyone was at least safe and sound.

I'm Thankful for celebrating Little Lady's 1st birthday.
What's not to love about this? Cute baby + cake = Awwww!

I'm Thankful for the tornadoes avoiding our house.
In June of this past year our local area got hit by a string of EF0-EF2 tornadoes. Praise God there were no deaths and only a few houses had damage. Bubee hid in our tub with Meme's dog during the storms. The scariest thing I saw was this over turned port-a-potty (I'm glad I didn't have to clean that up). :P

I'm Thankful for cow appreciation day at Chick-fil-a
My family LOVES Chick-fil-a. So every year the whole family dresses up and gets yummy food for FREE!! This was Little Lady's first year, and I think she made a very cute cow.

I'm Thankful for extended family I can laugh with.
My in-laws are amazing! I think this picture was taken when one of my SIL, Emily (L), made a comment about Bubee's  snake she's holding. Felicia (R) will officially be my SIL this July, but I think she already fits in pretty well. ;)

I'm Thankful for lots of Santa and Mrs. Claus friends.
If you didn't already know, I am a booking agent for Santa Claus. So all through the year we get to meet up with all of our Santa friends. It's always such a jolly time.

I'm Thankful for an adventurous family
This is a picture of my brother, Joseph, chowing down on a turkey leg at our local renaissance fair. My family is always ready for that next big adventure or trip. Guess that's why I try to keep a bucket list each season.

Comment below and tell me what you are thankful for this year.
