The Little Things I Am Thankful For This Thanksgiving

Aaron warming up my side of the bed each night before I crawl in bed.

Grace saying hilarious, random stuff like, "Aarie, your butt crack is showing," and "Mama, are you coming to see The Nutcrapper with me?" and "Everyone has a butt and some people's are stinky."

2% milk and pasteurized egg nog...mmm...creamy.

Finding my Decemberists CD's after months of searching.

My comfy chair at work that I stole from the conference room several months ago. Also thankful that no one has noticed that the chair is missing from the conference room.

My friend Michele leaving random candies on my desk at work throughout the day to cheer me up.

Kisses on the nose and big unsolicited hugs from Grace.

Laughter, and lots of it. Luckily, laughter abounds in my home.

Baby kicks.

Date nights.

Sundays at home, especially when a nap on the couch with Gracie is included.

Grace sleeping in her room all night long for the past several nights in a row. (!)

Aaron taking good care of me.

Aaron's sympathy symptoms because they show me that he is emotionally invested in this pregnancy and committed to me.

Good talks on the phone with my parents and my sister.

Knowing that next Thanksgiving, we will have another family member to celebrate with.

Have a great Thanksgiving, everyone!!
