Thankful Thursdays

I have seen Thankful Thursdays on a few other momo moms' blogsites, and it is an amazing idea.  So I would like to adopt it.

There are SO many things to be thankful for, and it is always helpful & healthy to refocus my mind on how generously God takes care of us.  So I am thankful for:
1.  Fellow momo/modi mothers who are this journey with me.
2.  Arturo, my best friend, suitable provision, amazing father, man of God.  He adores me, and it is wonderful to be adored!  He thinks I'm fun, beautiful & sexy even with what 5 kids have done to my body.  He doesn't always understand me (or rather my emotions), but he is always a great listener, extremely supportive, and always willing to watch the girls & give me a time out - I mean break (even if it is for 10 minutes).  I am so blessed to have him in my life & I am truly thankful for him & who he is!

A Little Bit of Colorado

A good friend of ours, Deb, decided to brave a visit to our crazy household.  She was an amazing help & all the girls took to her right away.  It was nice to have an extra pair of hands & have a walking partner.  Abi decided to try on all of Deb's clothes (good thing she has a great sense of humor eh?), and Jillian put on a few puppet shows.  
The BIG news is that Stella chose this time to finally give up her crib - or rather escape from her crib. So she now has a big girl bed & it has been . . . a challenge to get her to stay in her big girl bed.  Deb wanted to put her Super Nanny skills to the test & helped walk Stella back to her bed for about 1 1/2 hours each night for her entire stay here.  Normally I'd feel a bit guilty that a guest is helping train my child to stay in her big girl bed, but when you have 5 small kids - I was THRILLED for the help.  
Enjoy the pics & hopefully next post will be a picture of Stella sleeping soundly at bedtime.  Hey - don't laugh - miracles still happen.

Abi - helping the ducks cool off.
