Thankful on Thanksgiving

 In no particular order,
 ...the really great weather we've had this fall...

...current gas prices - seriously under $2 per gallon!...

...two happy, healthy, sweet boys who play well together 90% 75% of the time...

...the opportunity to teach two upper level classes at school...

...my hubby, also known as the guy who does 80% of the work at our house...

...blogging - seriously, it's basically how some of my really good local friends...

...our new house...

...our new house in a very social neighborhood...

...a healthy doggy despite being attacked over the summer...

...winning teams - the Royals (World Series champs), the Hawkeyes (11-0 and #3 ranked for the first time since 2002), and the Jaguars (my high school football team playing in the 4A State Championship game on Saturday)...

...both sets of parents who are still married 44 (Craig's parents) and 34 (my parents) years later...

...three grandparents (great grandparents to the boys) who are still alive and well...

...our Midwestern roots in Kansas and Iowa...

 ...a daycare provider who loves our boys like her own... 

...my health and well-being...

...the great city in which I live...

...five nieces and four nephews - cousins to the boys - whom they adore...

...jobs that allow us the time off to enjoy these holidays with said nieces and nephews (and the rest of the family)...

...friends, friends, and more friends - friends from high school, friends from college, friends from work, mommy friends, single friends, couple friends, blogger friends, neighborhood friends, friends that are past students - each is very special to me and reminds me of a different stage of my life... 

...my life in general - not sure how I got so lucky to be living the life I am, but I honestly wouldn't change a thing about it...
