i will enter His gates with thanksgiving in my heart

several of my friends are posting daily what they are thankful for on their facebook pages, and i do love thankful lists. i decided that i would try to post a thankful and a pic on my blog daily. this should be quite the challenge for me. since i missed the first day of November i will list 2 things and 2 pics today.

i am so thankful for my children. monkey tried to squish low so i could get all 3 of them in their costumes. my children have taught me so much. they have showed me unconditional love, and that the heart is capable of endless amounts of love. they have taught me how to laugh even when all i want to do is cry. they have also taught me that it is ok to fight for what i believe in and that i should always fight for them and what is best for them.

i am thankful for laughter. they laughed and giggled the whole time we trick or treated. i truly believe that children's laughter is the closest to angels i will hear this side of heaven.

i hope that this November brings cooler temps and love to all of you.

my baby love

i have been crocheting, sewing and knitting like a crazed woman, but i haven't posted anything I've worked on. for those that don't follow my other blog, there have been some HUGE changes in my life. we moved far from the land of happy, and are attempting to adjust. i had an ectopic pregnancy rupture and it was removed in January. found out that we will be blessed with a sweet girl a year to the day that the pregnancy was removed. below are some of the things that I've made for her.

a ruffle hat

a fuzzy blanket

the beginnings of a snuggle bag

a big that i crocheted for her

I've been working on tons of things for swaps, but I'm terrible about taking pics of things i make. I've made several aprons, a few shawls, several hats, fingerless mitts and other items. hope you are having a crafty week
