because....I am thankful

because dinner at candle light is more fun

because it doesn't rain often and when it does we must play 

 because we love photo booth

and fishy faces {sort of}

*********************

I am thankful for a beautiful weekend
I am thankful that my sister-in-law and soon to be brother-in-law watched our children... overnight!
I am thankful for the alone, uninterrupted time with my husband
I am thankful for the rainy day that forced us to snuggle by the fire and watch 2 movies
I am thankful for my strong will to take sugar out of my diet {4 days in a row so far} and gluten and dairy.

    We went GFCF for 6 months. I had a bunch of resources if you want them: Books, recipes, websites, etc. Let me know. : )

    Hugs!

  11. I sold our light in our dining room (it wasn't our style) and now we have to have candlelight dinners whenever we sit down together. It is so fun. I love the rain too. Four days without sugar - yay for you.

  12. Wow. Look at you. I wish I had that much self-control to stop eating sugar, dairy, and gluten.

    And snuggling with a movie is my ultimate favorite!

  13. Love this list! Reminds me of 1 Thessalonians 5:18. My boys can't pass a water puddle without jumping in it, and you know what...I let them! Puddles are for splashing :) Great photos!
