Week In Review - Ten Things Of Thankful (128)

Ten Things of Thankful


 Should I tell the guy who called me just when I was about to leave for our family appointment at the hair salon that he is responsible for my daughter's super-short cut?  Your vote!

My Ten Thankfuls for this week:

1. Our wonderful hair stylist. Yes, I'm still getting used to Lily's super-short do, but she did talk Lily out of going EVEN shorter. And she managed to cut Calvin's hair, which he didn't like but still gave her a big hug after he was done. Oh, and not to forget, it was her who gave me the most amazing cut EVER.

2. Our Thanksgiving dinner. It's over and done, the left-overs stowed in the fridge, the kitchen somewhat cleanish, and another wonderful afternoon spend with great people, which we can remember in years to come.

3. Calvin's scar looking great! It's much smaller than I thought it would be, and with time I am sure it will fade nicely and be next to invisible. At least that's what I hope for..

4. My wonderful, wonderful hubby, who's willing to do all-nighters with Calvin so I can sleep and hopefully get over the cold that's been trying to get me for the last few days. I am so thankful that I don't just have a husband but a true partner in all aspects of our lives.

5. Decorating our home with crafts Lily's done in school.

6. Violet's huge developmental improvements. I've found a great series of books aimed at teaching the alphabet, and it seems to be right up her alley. And with her improving eye sight, her attention to detail and her overall environment is improving as well. I'm so proud of our sweet girl!

7. Lily the book worm.

8. A very positive target plan for the coming year at work. And a much deserved honoring of the work I've put in over the last two.

9. Snow!!!

10. Early morning cuddles with my sweet Violet.


I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

    1. I've been wearing mine a lot as well :-) I'm so glad you like it!! I wore the necklace you made for me to work a while ago and my boss took a look at it, mentioning that her grandma, being a tiny person with nine kids, might have toppled over had she had a "mommy necklace" like that :-)

  3. snow! (we've been fortunate to have not yet had any), others to the Midwest, not so lucky.
    Thanksgiving does have that interesting quality, the gratitude that it's over and complete is very close to the gratitude for the actual event.
    cool

  4. Childhood scars tend to fade pretty nicely - I hope Calvin's does as well.

  6. It's so nice to be properly appreciated at work. I'm glad you have that.

    SO good to hear that Violet's doing well and that you're finding ways forward which work with her.

    And haircuts all round? SO impressive, because trying to get Neff's hair cut is still a battle.

  7. I'm a tiny bit jealous of your snow. I love to watch snow fall, especially during the holiday season!

  10. It warms my heart to see one of my kids reading a book. Glad you have kids who enjoy books, too. :)
    I have two kids who had serious stitches when they were younger. The scars have gotten less and less visible through the years. I'm guessing Calvin's will, too.
    "I don't have just a husband, but a true partner". Perfection. I love hearing about marriages like yours.
    Those short haircuts on kids are shocking, aren't they? I bet Lily's is adorable. And YAY for getting the best haircut ever. It's been a long time since I've been happy with a cut I've gotten.

  11. A great hair cut is VERY IMPORTANT, because we women know our day hinges on how our hair turns out. I am really happy with my current cut, too. Where's the picture of Lily with her new 'do? And Calvin with his?
    So glad to hear of Violet's developmental improvements! She's worked so hard! And so have you, mama, to help her learn and grow.
