The end of May . . .

I can't believe it is almost June.  Again.  Time flies so fast.

We've had a fun month.

At the beginning of the month, my best friend and I took our kids to the Great Wolf Lodge.  We all had a blast, and Michelle and I even got to get PEDICURES!

I took my sister, my twin niece and nephew (and my kids) to Bouncertown and my oldest won 1000 tickets on one game!

To celebrate our FIFTH Family Birthday . . . Hunkahubby and I took the kids to the zoo.

And we had cake.

And my hubby had a reception for his art that is on display with fellow artist Alix Cain at the Greater Greenfield Chamber of commerce.  I am so proud of him!  (Check out some pictures of the event on his artist blog.)

The puppies got to explore outside - and they keep growing, and I am struggling to stay unattached.  Only two more weeks until they are big enough to leave the nest.  :-(

Angelina graduated from her Kindergarten class at school and got a new Bible.  She loves it.

The kids survived another year at school and I now have a 1st grader, 3rd grader, and a 5th grader.  Wow.

And this weekend, Hunkahubby had a luau party for us, just for the fun of it.

And although we have had our struggles - this month has ended up a whole lot better than I thought it would.  And I am SO THANKFUL.

Happy Memorial Day to everyone. 

Remember those who have gone before us - and take the time to cherish those who are still here.

Thankful Thursday

I have MUCH to be thankful for.  Especially this week.

Our family has gone through an extremely rough time over the past year.  But we are getting through it.

So today - I am thankful for:

1.  The God who guides me through the storms - even when I don't realize it . . .

2.  My family that God brought together.

3.  My friends and family who stick with me, encourage me, kick me when I need it - and pray without ceasing.

4.  Good jobs and future opportunities for Hunkahubby and me.

5.  The meow-meows and woof woofs who never cease to drive me crazy and make me love them even more.

Speaking of the PUPPIES . . . they are almost a MONTH OLD!!!

And here is the one puppy that is already spoken for . . . at 3 weeks.  HE IS SO CUTE!!!

Take some time today to be THANKFUL!!!
