Picture doesnt have much to do with this post, but its cute isnt it?

This year we are not celebrating thanksgiving the traditional way. We are going to Disneyland with my brother and his wife. Yay for Disneyland! We are all very excited. Well this being said I want to say that I really love thanksgiving. And not just because of the food, Don't get me wrong I love, love, love, stuffing my face with all the deliciousness that is thanksgiving, but I really love being thankful. During the month of November I tend to think about my blessings more and this makes me happy. Honestly, I went running tonight and I couldn't stop thinking about everything I was grateful for. It was amazing too because the more things I thought of the more energy I had and I just wanted to keep running and running. Being grateful is the best medicine, energy supplement, happy pill there is and that is why I love THANKSGIVING. It makes me really happy. Here are some of the things I was thinking about today.
My baby boy's fatness and his huge smile. Also he loves to grab my face and attack my chin and he makes this monster sound when he does it and it's about the cutest thing I have ever witnessed.

Mornings with my babies. So grateful I get to enjoy them for as long as I want when they wake up. They are both so sweet after a nice good sleep. Today we spent about an hour just snuggling in bed before getting up to get things done. It was so nice.

Cleaning with Olivia. I am not one that loves to clean, but I strongly believe in importance of a clean house. But now whenever I clean Olivia insists on helping and she gets really excited about all of it and it makes me really excited too and so now I like to clean because honestly it feels a little like playing house when I was little and that was like my favorite game of all time.

That I love to pray. I have ever since I can remember. I don't know what I would do without it. Life for me hasn't been easy and growing up things were kind of a mess. And even now life can throw things at me that really suck and make me cry. But prayer has always comforted me and mine have always been answered and I know it's real and its the best and I am so happy we have it because its amazing if you really think about it.
