Grateful Girl!

During prayers tonight, Bethany started listing off the things she is thankful for. We started off our prayer as usual & she then started rattling off everything she wanted to thank God for.

Here is her list, "Mommy, Daddy, Elmo, Zoe, Sarah, Annabelle, Brian, Max, Grandma, Grandpa, Achoo, Baby" A few of these got listed a couple times through out the prayers.

To clarify who some of these people are: Elmo & Zoe are from Sesame Street (of course); Sarah, Annabelle, Brian, Max are kids from the sitters; Grandma & Grandpa & Achoo are all the Grandparents. It was really cute when I started to pray with her, that she cut it and started her own list of things to be thankful for. Usually, she just listens to what I have to say & chimes in with an "Amen" at the end! Tonight was a little treat for me to hear what little Bethany had to say!

Here are some moments over the past few days that I am thankful for: silliness & outdoor playtime!


For some reason Bethany just wanted to play UNDER the kitchen table Sunday night. That is where she ended up enjoying her cheese stick snack! What a silly girl!

Outdoor Playtime:
Bethany & I got to play outside today. What a gorgeous day! We got to have a good time playing on her bike, coloring and playing catch this evening. She loves being outside & since I am such a wimp when it comes to cold temperatures, we don't get out often in the winter!!! Plus, today was one of the first days in a while we didn't have after-school meetings or other obligations! What a great thing to be thankful for! I am hoping this nice weather keeps up...there is nothing worse than bitter cold days after we get teased with weather like we had today!!!
