Thankful Thursday...

It has been WAY too long since I've put down in words things I'm thankful for. I've decided today that I'm going to do my best to keep up with my Thankful Thursday blogs. Even on days when I don't feel thankful, I want to make a point to focus on all the great and amazing things that are happening in my life, not just on the things that seem to not happening.
So here goes...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I'm thankful for wonderful friends that know me so well and know how to make me smile. I really have so many that that statement is true about , but today, I recieved a sweet surprise from my friend Dara. When I got home from the grocery store, a bouquet of flowers was waiting for me!! They are tulips and irises--and are beautiful! The irises are just opening up, so I know they will just become more and more beautiful! Dara--thank you so much for your sweet friendship! I love you and I'm so thankful that you are a part of my life!

Here are my beautiful flowers, along with the pictures that I have of Dara and her kiddos that sit on my kitchen counter!
My (not so good) attempt to be artsy...but aren't these tulips so pretty?!

I'm so thankful that my parents are now officially Texans! They have been unpacking their new house all this week, and it still doesn't seem real that I can drive 5 minutes and be at their house!!! I love my parents so much, and I'm so thankful that they have moved closer to me!!
Here they are a couple weeks ago with the cute puppies...

I'm so thankful for things that make me laugh...I'm mean really belly laugh. Last night I walked into my bathroom to get ready for bed and found this....

A brand new WHOLE roll of toilet paper--shredded.
The culprit (who couldn't quite figure out why we were taking her picture with the thing that she just got in trouble for shredding)...

This is the second time Molly has gotten into our bathroom and made a mess, even after we put a trash can down with a lid. Boy is she sneaky!!! At least this time it was a fresh roll shredded all over our floor, instead of trash from the trash can! Yuck!!
We'll miss having Molly here with us. She's going to her new home tonight, but I'm sure Betsy will be glad to be in control of her own house again. We have sure found out that Betsy is definitely NOT an alpha-female, but more of a wuss!! But we love our sweet little wuss! =)

What are you thankful for this week?

I love this post! We can totally relate to Molly's toilet paper situation!!! Juliet loves to get into our toilet paper, library books (!!!), magazines, and even Ryley's homework! Ryley actually had to go to school and say, "Sorry about the big bite out of my homework; my puppy did it!"

I am so glad that you are doing Thankful Thursday again! I have considered doing it again, but I have beenso bad at keeping up with my blogs lately. But here it goes.... I am thankful for my family, of course. I am thankful that we have a place to call home. And lastly, I am thankful for my new job. I will be blogging about it.... but I can give you more details personally later on.
Love you guys!
