30 Day of Gratitude - Day 30

I am thankful for the Holiday season. We are so close to Christmas and this is the best time of the year. I love the giving spirit. I love all that the holidays represent.
I have been spending a lot of time getting ready for Christmas. Wrapping presents, making stocking stuffers, decorating the house and the tree. I am so excited for Christmas to come!

This last year was a bit hard here for us. Chris and I both lost Grandparents, other family issues went on and it just seemed like a lot to handle at times. I am grateful that we all made it through, with the help of those we love and that the Holidays are here. It is a time to spend with each other, a time to celebrate what we have and just a time to grateful for all the great people in our lives.

I am thankful.

30 Days of Gratitude - Day 29

I am thankful for books. I love reading and being able to sit down on the couch and lose myself in a good story is one of the best feelings.
I am a bit of a book hoarder. I love buying new books and I am thankful for half price book stores, library sales and other ways I am able to add to my collection!

30 Days of Gratitude - Day 28

I am thankful for quiet evenings, in a warm house, with a cup of cocoa, while I watch Netflix.
Being a mom of multiple kids is amazing but it can also be exhausting. Some days are harder, today was one of those days. On days that seem to go badly, I am very thankful for the peace and quiet after all the kids are in bed.

30 Days of Gratitude - Day 27

I am thankful our town rallied together and reopened our movie theater. It had closed for many reasons and a great group of people rallied together and did a bunch of fund raising.
Eventually, the money for updating was raised and the theater was reopened. We are very happy about this and it looks amazing!
It is now volunteer ran, which means the prices are low.
I am thankful for this, we take the kids to a lot of movies and having them be available, at a very affordable rate makes it so much better!

I am thankful for fun traditions with my family. I am thankful for the time spent together as we decorate our home for Christmas. I am thankful for the spirit of the wonderful Christmas season.
We always decorate the weekend after Thanksgiving, I love watching the kids decorate our tree. We turn on Christmas music and just spend the evening making our house festive.
