A Month of Thanksgiving Day 21

I am thankful for the sweet giggles of my children while they play together. I am thankful for their imaginations, and for their creativity. I am thankful for the time we spend together.
We have a large collection of board games here, and I love spending time with my family, making memories, and playing games.

I am thankful for these times we share.

A Month of Thanksgiving Day 20

I am thankful for the last warm days of fall. We got to enjoy some much needed outside today after running errands.

With Kairi have Cold Urticaria ( she is literally allergic to being cold ), winter can be a very long and boring time for her. We try to get out and enjoy all the warm days we can before the cold hits, and she does not get to play outside for awhile.

Today was a nice day, we got out, did some errands, went to the bakery, and ended our time with a trip to the playscape. The kids got to play, we all enjoyed being out, and I am thankful for that time.

A Month of Thanksgiving Day 18 and 19

Amelia has been sick this weekend that is why I didn't post last night. She came down with something Thursday night, and has been pretty sick over the weekend.

Today she is feeling much better. I would like to focus on that today.

I am thankful I have access to and education about alternative medication. I thankful I have ways to help my baby feel better when she is sick.

At the same time, I am thankful for modern medicine, there is a need for both of these things.

I am thankful I have the right to choose which I want to use, and at times, the ability to use both.

A Month of Thanksgiving Day 17

I am thankful for the little things.
I am thankful for a a warm house on a cold night.
I am thankful for a church that takes the time to feed hungry people in our community, and likes to share the leftovers with families in the church.
I am thankful for same day appointments when my kids are not feeling well.
I am thankful for a hot bath to soak in at the end of a long day.
I am thankful for all the little things in life.

The little things in life can stack up quickly, and be a giant blessing.

A Month of Thanksgiving Day 16

I am thankful for fun, family friendly events put on by our town.
We took the kids to living windows. For those that do not know what it is, it is a Christmas themed event, where all the stores downtown have living Christmas scenes in their windows. They have food, treats, crafts, and more.
My kids love going down to it each year, and I enjoy the family time.

A Month of Thanksgiving Day 15

I am thankful for warm  cars, hot chocolate, and a warm house.
My eight year old daughter, Kairi,  has a rare allergy that causes her to break out in hives when she is cold. It does not even have to be that cold for her to react.
We tried to go outside and play today. It was actually not that bad out, it was about fifty degrees, so I thought we would go to the local playscape, and get some outside time in.
By the time we got there, the wind had picked up, and it was a very cold wind. Even though Kairi had on warm clothes, we forgot to bring her face mask, and after fifteen minutes she was breaking out pretty badly.
Even though the kids were disappointed that we did not get to stay long, everyone cheered up at the idea of going home to a nice glass of hot chocolate, and since my car's heater seems to work on over drive, Kairi was nice and warm when we got home.

A Month of Thanksgiving Day 14



I am thankful that I was taught how to cook and bake. I am thankful I have those abilities, and I can use them to take care of my family.

I do a lot of cooking and baking. We are a health conscious family, and we do our best to avoid products that we know are full of ingredients that are not good for us. It can be hard to find treats, bread, and other items that fall in line with what we want to eat, and what we do not. It is made easier by the fact that I can make those items myself.

My kids and husband are pretty thankful for the abilities I have as well.

A Month of Thanksgiving Day 21

I am thankful for the sweet giggles of my children while they play together. I am thankful for their imaginations, and for their creativity....
