11.19 Thankfuls

I am thankful for:

1. My childhood. I had a great one. I hope my kids are left with great childhood memories.

2. My dishwasher. I HATE doing dishes, having a dishwasher makes it so much nicer.

3. The nice family at Petco. They had three little girls around Tralee's age. They were at Petco for the same reasons Tralee and I were: To look at the doggies and kitties. Tralee really hit it off with their little girls, and they ended up running around the store together giggling, jumping, and laughing. When we were all leaving, their grandma was buying her granddaughters gum and candy out of the 25 cent machines. I didn't have any quarters and Tralee was waiting for her turn to get some. I started explaining to Tralee that we would have to get a treat another day when their grandma handed Tralee a quarter as well. SOOOO nice. It's little gestures like that that just make my day! I love nice people.

4. Learning something new about Jim I never knew before. For instance, he used to melt chocolate and marshmallows together in the microwave, put them in the freezer, then put his concoction in little baggies and sell them for .25 cents each on the playground. When I asked him what he did with the money he made, he said he would go to the store and bought chocolate. What a funny kid he must have been.

5. When my babies are both asleep for the night. I love to be their mom, but it's so nice to have a little time with my hubby, or to myself when they're both down for the night.

I believe it was Jim who also taught me the melting chocolate chips and peanut butter together in the microwave on wax paper.. You would put it in for like 10 seconds at a time and then stir it with your finger and VOILA! Homemeade Reeses!! lol.. we had to improvise when we were little Leslie!
