10 Things Tuesday

1. It's 9:30 and everyone is asleep and has been for at least 30 minutes.
2. I have decided on Christmas presents for most of our family.
3. I am grateful that each of us has amazing talents. I bought a glass pendant this weekend and the couple who made it make them in their backyard. Glass blowing and the like are so beautiful, I am glad people have a passion for it and share with those of us who have other talents.
4. I am thankful for the Special Olympics and all the athletes and volunteers who make them possible.
5. Jman arrived safely at his destination today.
6. The weather is finally getting cold and I can get out my sweaters and thermals.
7. Petite #4 weighs 2.5 lbs and is in the 67th percentile. Little Jo-John is growing nice and strong. I can't wait to meet him.
8. We have wonderful friends who we get to spend time with. I am really blessed to have all of you in my life.
9. I'm glad we live so close to Joe T Garcia's. We should go more often.
10. Petite JT loves his school and so do I. The teachers meet them at the car in the morning and walk them to the cars in the afternoon. Curb side service. They are wonderful people.

10 Things Tuesday

Ok so it is Monday, but everyone is occupied now and I know I won't have time tomorrow, so...

1. JT loves his new school. I am so very thankful. His teacher is great and there are only 16 kids in his class and 13 of them are boys.
2. I continue to thank God that there was 1 spot open in his class. He gets to stay in school in Arlington so he can still play football.
3. I am so very thankful, once again, for our parents. They would have made sure we found a way to not totally uproot JT from his life.
4. I am thankful for loyalty. Last weekend when my sisters were here, they were ready to take on the person I think caused the whole school thing.
5. My husband loves me.
6. Everyone is quiet right now, not one person is yelling or touching anyone else.
7. Baby O really likes music. It is just the most precious thing. He nods his head and bops along to his favorite songs. And believe me he lets us know if is not a song he likes. So young to be so opinionated.
8. My friends are the greatest, most awesome people in the world.
9. My sisters are the greatest most awesome sisters anyone could hope for.
10. Baby Jo-John is growing safe and healthy.

Thanks to all of my friends and family. I love each and everyone of you and thank God for your individuality and friendship.

Talent on loan from God-

Oh Me, Oh My

So, long time no post. Let me tell you a lot has happened in the last 2 months since my last post.
1. My sister is having a baby in January, that would be Petit Goddess#2.
2. School has started
3. Football season is in full swing, everywhere.
4. JT is now at a new school because a very miserable person felt the need to uproot an 8 year old to give themselves some sort of self worth that they don't get from their own life.
5. Along that note, we were blessed that the pre-school he went to has an academy and they had 1 spot in his grade, just for him. We went to meet the teacher today and he wanted to start tomorrow! Yeah, what a gift from God.

Anyway I hope to find my way to my blog on a regular basis again. Read me soon.
