Thankful Thursday

Last week we were driving around and the lilacs were in full bloom. I told the kids to tell daddy I wanted a lilac bush for Mother's Day. Do you know the next day God had a lilac bush waiting at the post office for me? I had filled out a survey for the Arbor Day Foundation months ago and they sent me 1 lilac bush and some evergreen trees as a thank you gift. By the way we love the Arbor Day Foundation because we love planting baby trees and watching them grow. Great thing to do with your kids if you've never done it. It's a yearly tradition for us.

Last night my mom had been watching Jaxson and Amaya while I took Paige to dance. I went to drop off Paige afterwards for a little while and this is what I found. Amaya had decided to have a Lemonade stand and it was so cute and they were so excited. I am so thankful for my mom's neighbors who were king enough to pay my kids a dollar (they weren't even charging a dollar) for a drink my mom said was really not good and they drank it anyway.

What are you thankful for today?
