Showin' some gratitude!!!

I need to be grateful for all the many blessings I have...so off the top of my head the first five things that pop into my mind...
1. Being able to sleep in just a little now that my kiddos are off for Spring Break. We'll see if that actually happens.
2. Bathrooms, seriously I am sooo thankful that I don't have to run outside in the middle of the night to use the outhouse...especially with the three new inches of snow on the ground!!
3. The need for snuggling from my kids, all but Bug that is...he does like to sit and talk sometimes though, and he's got quite a funny little personality.
4. Honey-nut cheerios... breakfast, lunch, or dinner, they never fail me.
5. The garbage trucks...I am so thankful that we have three separate trucks that come and haul all our garbage, green waste, and recycling away...plus it is Ashie's favorite thing to see!
***********************
Just some fun pics...
The bunny shirts I made for the girls last year, Lexlee wore hers to school, but I think she did it just to be kind to me...she is 10 after all, and girls that age don't wear fluffy bunnies on their shirts to school anymore. She's a sweetie!
Jibbity and Ashie on the other hand thought they were awesome and wonderful.
Love this Lil' Squishy face, he is too stinkin' cute, and smiles all the time.
Easter coming soon...love this holiday.
NOT happy about this one, but I AM grateful for the moisture. It snowed all day yesterday!!!
Hey and it's April Fools. click here to see something I did to my kiddos last year...so funny!!!
HAPPY 1st DAY of April!!!!

Love your list also. I am really not going to tell you what the weather is like here in Arizona, you would be totally jell-o...lol

About outhouses..
I need to tell you this.
My dad is 74.
My dad grew up in Salt Lake County
Near Hiland Drive and 39th south.
They lived in what is referred to as and "basement" house (just a roof on a basement) My grandpa built their house on top of the basement house when my dad was 18.
So my dads whole life as a child,living at home, he used an outhouse.. because he married my mom at 19.
My mom couldn't believe people in the "country" still lived like that because she lived in the "city".
Then 39th south was still farming, country...

Ok..
been missing blogging but i am back..
