Totally Thankful Thursday...and SUN oh yeah!

It is Thursday, and I need to list some things I am thankful for!! There are many, but sometimes I seem to get caught up in the "feel sorry for Tanielle Mode"...this little list always seems to smack me in the face, and help me realize my gratitude list should be a mile long.
1. All the many raindrops that fell for a couple of weeks, I missed the sun for sure, but enjoyed the smell of the rain!
2. Family...I can't wait for my family reunion in just a few short weeks! I can't wait to see everyone, and watch little Ashie get filthy(trying to convince myself on that one!)
3. Watching my two littlest monkeys play in the baby pool. Jibbity would be happy in a puddle. Ashie thought this was the best day ever!
4. My two oldest munchkins being back home. I can't wait for them to be out of school. Our summer break doesn't start until July 2nd.(year-round school)
5. The birds chirping, I love that sound first thing in the morning!

*******************************
Here's my four little monsters arms.
This is what happens when two are in sun for a week in sunny California, and two(who have much fairer skin anyway)play in the house for two weeks because of rain. This pic doesn't even do the difference justice!!

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

Ashie's first time in the baby pool.
Just loungin'...
*******************************
This is what happens when Daddy gives Ashie a bath after playing in the pool and only puts a diaper on her. Then she runs around for a while, and when I look over at her waving to Daddy out watering the flowers, this is what I see...

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

Have a great Thursday...my kiddos have their "Mountain Man Rendezvous"after school, it's just a big fun carnival, and they can't wait. Bug even gets to be in the dunking booth because he is on the student council. If I feel up to going I will post pics, if not I don't know if Hunter Dan can be trusted with the camera!:-)

Morning Tanielle!
I used to love family reunions, but sadly enough, we haven't had one in years. My aunts and uncles are getting too old to travel anymore.

I can't get over the difference in your child's arms. That's a lot like our family. My hubby and oldest daughter tan easily, but Abby and I usually burn first. No fun!

Great things to be thankful for! I love the smell of rain too...outside smells so good after it rains, kinda like it got a bath. Cute pic of the kiddos arms...the older definitely got a sweet tan while in Cali! I love the pics of Jibbity and Ashie in the kiddie pool...they are aDORABLE!

Hope you're having a terrific Thursday!

You always come with a great list of thankfuls.
The picture of the arms is fantastic.

Have a great reunion. Please put your feet up and let the kids get as dirty as possible. (I know that is hard; you might just have to let someone from the family keep an eye on them!)

My girls love the water too!

Have fun at your family reunion. Ours is coming up too. My how dirty the girls get, but they do have fun!

I love the lil' Plumber Butt pix.
:) So cute. You got great pix of them in the pool and I am cracking up at the tan vs. pasty arms.
Too funny.

Very cute pictures!!! Looks like everyone was having a great time in the pool. But about that diaper . . . looks like dad might need a little more time practicing putting on diapers.

Cute pool pictures! How cute! The rain is a downer sometimes, but then I look at how green the mountains are and it is amazing!
