Thanks Giving and Straight from Santa's Workshop

Boy, Thanksgiving came and went and here I sit. I read my sisters blog and it got me thinking about Things I'm thankful for. First off, I'm so thankful for where I am, no, not sitting in a chair in front of the computer blogging, but that, too. I'm thankful for where I am in life. I'm thankful for a companionship that is solid and sure. A man that has become more important to who I am then me. Children who allow me to see things from a point of view that makes me a better person: more patient, more tolerant, more aware of my actions, more loving, bolder, braver, more tender, busier....etc. I'm thankful for animals, Cows, sheep, pigs, horses, dogs, goats, parakeets.... I'm thankful for good parents who serve more then we think they ought to. And I'm thankful for things that motivate. You know, like when your 6 year old uses to much toilet paper and it motivates you to use the plunger.....grrrr.... normally I would shun from such an activity =)

I will let that thought lead me into my next. Christmas has motivated me just a bit, too. so naturally I'm thankful for Christmas, as well.
Here we are in Santa's.....I mean Mrs. Santa's workshop. These are a couple of the gifts in progress. I spent most of yesterday putting the cradle together, I'd cut it out a week or two earlier. The quilt took me a lot longer then I intended but I can make up for that in the two I have left to do. AHH Motivation. I've attempted to make something homemade for Christmas each year for my children It's led to quite a few projects that have been fun. Aubree, who is older already has one of these cradles, She's the one that suggested I make one for Oaklee. I still have the finishing work to do. But I've found that I kinda enjoy projects like this.
