So Many Reasons to be Thankful!

One of my all time favorite months is nearly over and I've been MIA for most of it!  On here, not in life!  Here is an overview of the past, fulfilled November!  
We made a trip to Iowa City to visit my parents and our friends from Chicago, Betsy and her family met us there too!  We had a very relaxing weekend and I just adore Betsy and her cute, growing family!   Here are our kids together after our relaxing weekend! 

A cold front moved in and I showed Molly the cold air and temps that was heading our way, her response, "Is there a rainbow coming?!"  I absolutely adore her!

We went as a family to the KU football game!  For $0.77 a ticket we splurged and had a wonderful day!  We had a great view, lots of entertainment with the band in front of us, cheerleaders, Uncle Matt and his girlfriend Amanda (!!!!!), and a KU win!  Complete with the students rushing the field and tearing down the goalpost!  I love KU and all my favorite people were there!

I took Molly to her first school skating party and it was a superhero themed!  She wore her cape from her buddy Joshua's party in the spring and was so precious!  1.  She is the cutest ever!  2.  There were lots of falls and a few tears, but she did awesome!  I'm so proud of her going out on the rink and trying her best!  She never gave up and wasn't intimidated by the "big" kids!  3.  I didn't fall once, whew!  4. Wow!  Skate parties are so much fun!  Would love to have a school parent skate party!

Went with my sweet friend Jill to hear Kathy Walkile and her husband Rich speak about her cannoli's!  She appears on The Real Houswives of New Jersey and was super sweet and honest about their life on TV and off!  Her cannoli was delicious too!

Jack and I found some last minute tickets to a KU basketball game against Fort Hayes State!  Love, love, love KU basketball and Jack was in Heaven!  We had the best time, awesome seats, and a KU win!  I think we're KU's good luck charm!

Elliott the Elephant, aka Will's class mascot, came for a visit to our house last weekend!  Here's a sneak peak at Will taking Elliot for a spin in his raptor!  As I'm typing this, I realized I never blogged about Will's birthday party or his truck!  In good time!

There is so much I'm thankful for and thank God for daily!

*My sweet husband!  He gives us so much and is truly my best friend!
*My three great kids!  I'm honored to be their mom and love that they are all mine, and Eric's!  
*Friendships and friends all over the country, here in Kansas, all the way to Virginia and California, and down in Texas!  
*Our health!  We have been fighting colds and I'm having so "issues" but overall, we are healthy and so thankful for our health!
*A warm, cozy home!  It is blustering cold and we have a home that keeps us snug!
*Family time!   Last night my in-laws had a dessert party with Eric's family, my family will be around all weekend, and I love having family for the holidays!  
*My children's teachers and schools!  Wow!  Blown away every teacher this year!  Words can't describe how blessed our children are at their schools!
Many Thanksgiving Blessings!  Happy Thanksgiving!
