Thankful

I couldn't sleep last night.

I just laid in bed, eyes wide awake, thinking.

Thinking of how extremely thankful I am

and wondering how I could have showed that gratitude even more.

Yesterday some of my very good friends threw me and Marge an extremely cute baby shower.

The pictures don't even do it justice.  We were spoiled beyond belief.

(Yes, that is a B.O.B. jogging stroller!  Thanks Momma!)

I wanted everyone to know, with all my might, how much it meant to us.

Saying, "thank you" and "I love it" just didn't seem good enough, I wanted to say even more.

Not only were we spoiled with presents, but I had the chance to see some girls I haven't seen in a very long time.  It was wonderful to catch up.  It seems that there is something in the water, because I think there are more girls in that picture who are pregnant or had a baby in the past few months than not.

It was absolutely wonderful to see everyone!  We missed Sarah, but she seemed to make it in a lot of pictures.

As if I could handle any more fun for the day, I also woke up to babies in my house,

a husband who went to the grocery store, and B and G for breakfast.

Then, we carved pumpkins.

We are fairly certain Kauffman thinks the pumpkins are alive.  He kept on introducting himself to them, and wanting us to pet them.  Then, he was extremely upset when we started cutting them open (notice he is standing a good distance back).

So, I am sure putting his sister in one didn't help.

Poor kid.

Thought for the day

Question for the day

Have you ever felt like you wanted to say more than "thank you"?  What did you say instead?
