Day Seven.. My Surroundings!

I am so thankful for the beautiful tree's that surround my house. Sometimes I feel like I live in a giant tree house. We have Tree's in the front and backyard. We have aspen's, pine's, three fruit tree's, Two are apple and one is a plum tree. My plum tree is my favorite. This year it produced an abundance of fruit. We had friends come and gather up as much as they could. They made syrup and jam for us, it was awesome. What got me thinking about my tree's was earlier today I had a friend come over for snacks and some good conversation. She mentioned she had never been to my house during the day. She LOVED it. She felt like the tree's were so comforting and peaceful. Sometimes I feel as though maybe I take it for granted. I do have beautiful surroundings to go with a home that I love so much, Maybe that is part of the reason why I love it here. In the mornings it sounds like we live in the Tracy Aviary, with all the churping and birds talking to one another. Some years we have some really cool nest's that I want to take a peak in but I am too afraid I might get killed by a mama mag pie. YIKES!

Day Six... Being A woman

On day six I am thankful for being a woman.. Sometimes it can be hard. With the emotional ups and downs and pregnancy's, its not always high heels and pink lipstick. LOL. But overall I am PROUD to be a woman and I am surrounded by a ton of Amazing women, especially my MOM! She is incredible, giving, forgiving, talented and fun! She was always helping us with our school projects, slaved over home cooked meals for us and cleaned up after us. She was a stay at home MOM most my life and worked hard at it. She always did her ART on the side and taught us to be creative. She did really cute things and crafts for us on almost every holiday. I love you MOM and strive to be the kind of Woman you are proud of.

Five generations of AMAZING women!

Fountain Of Wishes, Shopping And Game Night!

Andy had this past weekend off... In fact, he had a three day weekend!! Yay! So the kids and I got to spend some quality time with the love of our lives. What would we do without our Andy? Anyway, we tried to squeeze in as much stuff as possible. Including two baptisms! What a busy weekend. My Mom works at Dillard's and asked if we could come down so Ella could try on some shoes that she wants to get for her birthday. So we did a little shopping. While we were there we had ice cream and threw pennies into the fountain and made a wish.. OK, we threw like ten nickles, dimes, pennies, whatever I could find in my purse. LOL. Andy took the kids to go see Frankenweenie while I did a little more shopping with my friend Denise. We played the game of LIFE one of the nights. Ella LOVES to play games. LIFE was always my favorite game to play when I was a kid and it's Ella's too. She is sooo much like me it is CRAZY.

Mila.. Losing at the game of LIFE.. Or maybe she just hates her life. LOL

Don't forget to make a wish.
