I'm thankful for Wyatt's
preschool art projects.
I'm always excited to look in
his backpack when he gets off the bus
to see what cute things he's made at school.
(With help from Miss Britt, of course.)

Thankful to Wyatt for getting
us sweet seating at the BYU basketball game.

And to sweet friends for sharing
their tickets with us!

I'm thankful that Bugg can sleep
through anything.
Even the hoopla at the game -
BYU vs. Utah State.
Extra heat & rivalry going on.
(xoxo, Bailee!)

I'm thankful for getting bit by the crafting bugg.
The idea just came to me as I was falling asleep one night.
A Christmas countdown for Bugg's room.

Girls' Nights Out
with my mom, sisters, & Mia!
We saw the play "Little Women"
in the cutest little theater.
I love the movie, love the book,
and now I love the musical.

Thankful for the candlelit dinners
we can now enjoy since it's dark by dinnertime.

Ssssoooooooo thankful for HIM.
My eternal Hunk.

I am thankful for Wyatt's fantastic
preschool teachers.
We got to visit for his Thanksgiving feast,
which Ella readily helped herself to.
We also got to see how popular he is at school.

On the way to his vision/speech therapy,
he stops in and sings ABC's with the secretary.
When he pats his legs like that,
you know he's a happy guy and lovin' the attention.
At one point,
I counted 10 people surrounding him,
just soaking up his cuteness as he "sang" (babbled) the ABC's.
Oh, my gosh, melt this mama's HEART!

Lightbox for vision therapy
Wyatt & I are incredibly thankful
for Miss Britt and that she gets to be with
him again this year.
It was a close one.
Those two, I tell ya.
They have the best times!

I'm thankful for inchstones.
This Bugg has made great progress.
Perhaps slow to some.
But in this special needs world,
progress means a whole day's worth of celebrating
the teeniest tiniest thing.
Like tracking a picture of a red apple
across a lighted screen.
He used to look right through the lightbox
as if it wasn't even there!

And likewise, I'm thankful for Ella's milestones.
Like discovering body parts and holes.

I'm thankful to celebrate Bugg and that he is
4 and a HALF now.

That means 4 and a HALF candles.
Cake is topped with HALF a cookie.
I'm thankful for cookies, too.

And mostly, I'm thankful for this
awesome little family of mine.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
Grub OUT.
