An early Thanksgiving

CeCe had us over to her cozy new home for our annual "Smith Family Thanksgiving". We had a wonderful time. Really yummy food and great company!  Of course a family picture is never really a family picture without a child trying to ruin it....Nicholas... 

And this morning, Gianna and I worked on this school project together.  I love that she put both our names down as the artists.  I think it came out great!

I have the best Mom ever!

Yes, I do!  She is funny beyond words with the best sense of humor!  She is so creative and artistic.  She has a wonderful imagination and just plain old fun to be around.  I love my Mom!  Not only did she teach me how to be a good parent to my children...she taught me how to have fun with my children. 

Happy Birthday Mom!!!

When I say I "love" my babies, that word doesn't even come close to what I really feel in my heart, body and soul for them. It feels a whole lot bigger than that word. And I know they feel the same way about me too. I love when I'm in the kitchen doing the dishes and one of my kids calls my name from the other room.  I say "what" thinking they are going to ask me a question, and then they reply "LOVE YOU"!!!  They tell me every...single...day how much they love me.  I am blessed.

Gianna's friend

Yesterday Gianna brought home some writing assignments she's been working on in school. One of her assignments was to write about a good friend. So she chose her friend, Jessica.  Here is a picture she drew of her friend...

(I love that her "plan" was just writing the girl's name!) 

Isn't that so sweet?

Then she was asked to write ten things she loves about her mom.  Danny helped type this up about a month ago and I wasn't allowed to see.  I just saw it last night...

I love that she thinks she loves me more than I love her...no possible way.
