A Thankful Heart: Smorgasbord

I realize that I missed the traditional Thanksgiving post and even slacked on a post-Thanksgiving post. I was busy spending time with dear friends and my little family, so it was time well spent.
 I am eternally grateful for all of my many blessings in life, so I wanted to a smorgasbord of sorts of the things I am thankful for.

In no particular order or importance...

~ Thanksgiving spent with international friends. It always adds so much more to the table and to the conversation.*

~ My KitchenAid stand mixer. That lovely's muscles were put to work for Thanksgiving food prep.

~ People serving ham AND turkey for Thanksgiving...cause really, who likes turkey?!?!

~ Chubby toddler hands that wrap around your neck.

~ Davyn McClain coming home for the hospital on Thanksgiving day...after spending two weeks in the NICU.

~Sunshine and crisp breezes.

~ Fleece-lined leggings, the ultimate stretchy pant.

~Cookies and coffee...together.

~ Sugar-free Peppermint Mocha coffee creamer...in the extra large bottle.

~Black Friday deals that were online the day BEFORE Thanksgiving...and have already shipped and arrived at my door.

~ Bathroom doors with locks.

~ Getting the boys their most wanted gift.

~ Naps.

~ "Hold me, Momma" on repeat.

~ Josh Groban singing Christmas music.

~ Husband had the Friday after Thanksgiving off for the first time in 7 years. Jubilee!

Really. I have SO much to be thankful for. I have a warm home, more than enough clothes, a stocked kitchen, happy boys and a loving husband. I feel blessed beyond measure. Not just during this holiday season, but every day of the week. Even on this overcast Tuesday morning when I have completely run out of any forms of juice (absolute horrors for toddlers) I am thankful that I can get in my car and go buy some.

What are you thankful for?

* Pretend there is a really great Thanksgiving table of friends picture. I have filled my limit of images on Blogger and am in the middle of trying to figure out how to fix it. Any suggestions?
