thankful thursday

so many things to be thankful for this time of year--this week i am truly thankful for:

**the anonymous benefactors that left a package on our door thanking us for our christmas lights! we were shocked and stunned. and completely DELIGHTED.

we just wish we would have known we were in the running, cuz then we would have gone for ALL STATE. (next year!)

**the fact that depeche mode would liken themselves unto the three wise men.

**for a stellar, star-making performance by abbey in the 3rd grade christmas program.

**this poster that made me smile~

**the preschool program complete with songs, dance, and cookies--mia was SO excited to have us in attendance--

**miss brandi, who makes mia's world turn!

**the chuckle that this video gave me --

it was generally unspectacular until :35 left when fallon started bringing in the 80's bad-ass synth-air drumming combo, and then it REDEEMED itself. fully. (plus i loved that tracy morgan's job was simply to stand there and dance.)

**and finally, for you.

although i am not a very "social blogger" anymore, i do read each and every comment that i get.

and i love them.

so thanks for validating me in 2009--i'm OUT until 2010. have a very merry!!

Love your pics----your girls are darling! Yeah, I know that you aren't much into socializing, well---with us bloggers, but I do still love to come on over and read your fun blog---hopefully someday, I will meet you.

That would indeed be groovy....

Merry Christmas, my dear!

That Mia is just precious. If it weren't kind of weird, I'd put a picture of her on my wall and kiss it each day. She's that delicious. But I'm not a psycho child stalker. So I won't.
