153. a CLEAN house! I made a list for eah day, Sat-Tues, and I am sitting here now in a clean from top to bottom house with NO laundry to be done. I LOVE IT!
154. Christmas cookies
Sarah's rendition of our family, in sugar cookie
155. little girls with frosting on their faces....
because they did this!
156. the way Hannah has grown to take pride in her work (and I know she needs a haircut, but she insists that she will keep it out of her eyes)
157. Christmas smelling candles
158. getting out the Christmas books
159. seeing Josh pull into the driveway
160. that first hug
161. holding hands around the dinner table and saying the blessing
162. having too many people in the living room to sit comfortably--I'll take a smushy hour of television watching if I'm being smushed by those I love!
163. my swiffer wet jet....oh how I love it!
164. thrift shopping with Sarah
165. the sound of rain in the chimney
so much to be thankful for!
