Top Ten for 2008....

This year, I've decided that I need to make a list of the top ten things I'm thankful for. Some will be obvious and others just might be silly, but I'm thankful nonetheless. And, by the way, these are not in any particular order, just in order of the way they spilled out of my brain.

I am thankful...

10. ... that my two gorgeous children are relatively healthy and have no serious medical conditions.

9. ... for my gorgeous husband who puts up with me and even cleans the house and does laundry when I don't feel like doing it.

8. ...for the smell of Downy fabric softener. Puts me in a good mood every time I catch a whiff!

7. ...for a clean house. Enough said.

6. ...for a place to live. Too many people don't have the privilege.

5. ...for friends who put up with my psychosis/neurosis, whatever you want to call it.

4. ...for facebook.

3. ...for my new job.

2. ...that I haven't totally screwed up my life and have made relatively good choices.

1. ...that God's grace is sufficient.

Hope you have ten things you are thankful for. Happy Thanksgiving!!

my name is april and i'm a ...

facebook addict. Okay, there, I admit it. I said I wouldn't even use it, but now, hourly, here I am, checking to see if some blast from the past has found me. And you know what? Usually, it is something, or rather, someone that I've thought about many times and didn't know how to go about locating them. So there. I'm officially a facebook addict who doesn't even go on her myspace page anymore.

Have a great weekend!

I need birthday ideas for Little Prince's SIXTH birthday which is fast approaching - we're down to 24 days!!! And, I have absolutely NO ideas on what to do. There are EIGHTEEN kids in his class, plus another maybe ten kids that he just knows that I must invite, so it needs to be something economical (read: CHEAP) and yet cool enough for six year olds.

Now, the good news is that tonight we went to dinner where they have a balloon artist and Little Prince asked the guy if he could come to his birthday we've got a start, but how much can one guy entertain that many kids?!?! The problem with having the party at my house is I don't have a lot of room outside for the kids to play...I was thinking of doing an "old fashioned" party, with the old standard party games that kids don't play anymore, like pin the tail on the donkey, etc.

So, here's the contest. I want your ideas and in return, you'll win my undying love and adoration! Let's all get those creative juices flowin'.

and the winner is....

Here's the pumpkin for 2008...isn't it great?? We took the kids to the "pumpkin patch" and this little guy won the prize! Here's a couple pics of my other little pumpkins, too, that'll have to make do until I can get the Halloween ones uploaded.

Hope you all had a happy haunting day and got lots and lots of treats!!

OH! On a totally different subject, Little Prince asked "Lauren" in his class to be his girlfriend and she said yes!! Could it get any cuter than that??? It's 330 in the morning and I need to get some rest. Peace out.
