Gratitude Sunday

I'm back! Life has been a wee bit, ok a lot bit, crazy recently. However, I am trying to get into a nice routine so that things won't be quite so crazy!

Today, I am grateful for a lot -- don't I say that every Sunday? ;)

1. My sisters. I have 1 sister and 5 sister-in-laws. They are each very special to me in their own way. I love them each for the things they teach me, the love they give me and their children and my brothers (and brother in laws). I am just really lucky.

2. Jeremy. Holy cow, he rocks my world! Right now, he is having a pajama party with Seth and Amelia while I sit here and blog. He is so good with them, and SO good to me. He changes diapers, cooks, cleans, does yard work, plays with the kids and only asks for my love in return. I am the luckiest woman in the world.

3 . My business. I have sold 2 slings in the last week and have had quite a few more inquiries. I love that people love the slings and more and more Mamas want to wear their babies. It just warms my heart.

4. Halloween. I am REALLY excited for Halloween this year. We have some big plans for this week, big plans I tell you!

5. I am really grateful that I could spend the day with my kids yesterday. I had a million and one things to do, but chose not to, and took the kids to Border's for a Halloween party (more on that tomorrow). They had fun and I had fun. I'll sew tonight after they go to bed. They're worth it.

Here's a little sneak preview of their costumes. I'd like to introduce you to Obi Wan and Little Red Riding Hood. I'm grateful that my Mom made the Obi Wan costume for Seth and I could make the Red Riding Hood costume for Amelia. They're pretty cute eh?

I wanted to thank you for commenting on my blog - especially since it introduced me to you!

Isn't it wonderful to have a million and one things to do ... and just play with your kids instead? THAT'S what life is all about, my friend. The rest is just fluff.

Cute costumes!! My son would love the Obi him and his daddy are huge Star Wars fan. I'll be posting pics of the kiddies soon..I have Batman and a kitty which of course I've renamed "Catwoman" at my house this halloween. If I've got a Batman why should I not have a "Catwoman" Greg thinks it's just b/c of my love for th e Batman movies but hello. It is perfect. :)
