Thankful Boys

My boys certainly have thankful little hearts. I hear "thank you" all day long, whether it is thanking me for buying them new socks, thanking the nurse for their flu shots (I'm NOT lying), or thanking us for a glass of juice. They definitely know how to say "thank you".

They were especially thankful this morning because St. Nick brought them wonderful goodies. There were mini-trucks, tiny snow globes, candies, books, small stuffed animals, and candy canes. They are lucky boys, and I'm a lucky momma. I'm thankful for my thankful boys.

Ya gotta love the morning hairstyles.

Happy to be playing with their new trucks.

Ben wasn't too excited about the toys, but he sure did like to eat the paper.

You're a miracle worker managing to get them all into one frame.

Wow! Aren't they gorgeous and adorable! :) My monkey's teacher told me she never says please and thank you -- that they (and the other kids) have to "beg" her.... Great. She does it at home! Sometimes.... She has been better at it lately, though...!

Down here in the bible belt, people don't do St. Nick's...except me, I think!! I love the tradition, so I'm bucking the system & celebrating it. I'm glad to see it somewhere else! My only friend who does it is from Belgium where it is THE holiday.

Made in America paper... yummy!

Your boys are adorable! I can't believe you got them all in 1 photo and sitting still! I can hardly do that with my 1 :)

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
