and here's one that's simple enough for even me! i'm definitely going to do this one with my kids and all the extended family on thanksgiving morning:

crafty ways to show thanks

i'm going to have all the leaves cut out and ready to go, and then everyone will just jot something down on their leaves on thanksgiving morning. then string them up and everyone can enjoy them all day!

good day

a good day is...

sleeping in.

dancing in the grocery store aisles with sweet m.

watching hubby help the kids decorate a snoopy gingerbread house with no interference from moi.

today i...

sometimes i start thinking about all the improvements i need to make, all the things i don't get done, how much tv i let my kids watch, and on and on and on, and it can get a little much. i can really get pushed down by it, y'know?
so i think it's important for slowly-improving people like me to celebrate the small things. as in, some days i get the dishes all done. as in, some days i get a load of laundry done, clean a bathroom, and play a lot with the kids. as in, some days i get to take pictures.
today i took pictures.
