All That I'm Allowed (I'm Thankful) by Elton John on Grooveshark

I'm sorry to be two days late with this. We had to make a quick trip to the panhandle for Grandmommy's funeral and were out in the middle of nowhere. I attempted to post it from my phone yesterday, but I was having some technical difficulties. Anyways, today I am thankful for...

  1. Completing my Christmas shopping {under budget}
  2. The beautiful life of my Grandmommy
  3. My aunt & uncle, who lovingly cared for Grandmommy for many years
  4. A baking day with Amy & Shannon
  5. A sweet & snuggly baby to hold on a sad day
  6. Leftovers from lunch at Amy's that were enough to feed dinner to my family on a night when I didn't really want to deal with dinner {PLUS enough for lunch the next day!}
  7. Doctors & nurses who took great care of my uncle Neal {he's recovering very well!}
  8. A great afternoon/evening with my brother & his family
  9. My kids getting along so well with their cousins
  10. A super cute handmade beanie from my niece
  11. Wendy's fudge {that I shouldn't have allowed her to leave here!!}
  12. A Christmas Eve visit with my baby brother
  13. A beautiful Christmas Eve service at church
  14. Christmas Eve dinner traditions with my family
  15. My kids insisting on doing a word search together ~ even though they both had their own :)
  16. Their patience on Christmas morning {they're cool about waiting until after breakfast to open gifts!}
  17. Fun games with Dan & Sheryl
  18. A nice visit with Sheryl's mom
  19. A place to leave our crazy dog for the night
  20. A beautiful day to honor the life of my Grandmommy
  21. Seeing family that I haven't seen in way too long
  22. A nice visit with my hippie cousin :)
  23. A beautiful ring that belonged to Grandmommy
  24. A couple of days with my beautiful cousin Kendra's family
  25. A lot of time spent with my brother this Christmas

What are you thankful for today?

Amy
