30 Days of Thankfulness-Day 1


I have been absent from this blog for quite a while lately.
Mostly because I have needed some time to de-stress.
But when I saw I'm thinking of starting a blog and Alison's post, I decided that I would join in too.
Because I have lots of things to be thankful for.

So today, I am thankful for the fact that it is the 1st of November and I can finally start bringing out little Christmas things. Braeden absolutely LOVES Christmas and I love building it up for the kids (Ryley loves the lights and the baking and the christmas paper).
In our house, Christmas isn't just about Santa and the gifts we receive. But it is also about sharing things with those who may not think Christmas is so great.

I am thankful that my kids see Christmas as a time of giving, sharing joy and being happy.

What are you thankful for today?

    1. I am so hoping to find time to get sewing again this year. I have dragged the sewing machine out so at least that is a start I guess!!

  2. I love, love, love Christmas too - although I usually try to resist getting stuff out until December.
