thankful thursday, a bit early

Today is the hardest day of vacation - the day after, made even more complicated by some lost luggage (and thus lost clothing, glasses, moisturizer, and phone charger) but I thought my attitude needed a little pick me up. Let's hear yours too!

- I'm thankful that all the kids stuff did make it here. Bottles, clothes, & babies in general. It was a close call on our last flight, Gloriana almost asked to go home with someone else.
- For our bed. I loved staying at my mom's house, but Nick & I have an intense fondness for our king size city with the bamboo sheets. Also - our tv to fall asleep to & our open window to the NW air.
- For Lost on tonight.
- That Elias has been asking for his "Mommy" all day today. Not me - no, no, no. That's what he calls his Nonny because he can't pronounce n's. It's bittersweet, but I love that this trip really solidified extended family in his mind.
- My babes. They're just great. Elias & Glory could possibly be the coolest people I've ever met. Raising them in the love and knowledge of Jesus Christ is an honor & a blessing.
- To have Elias' SECOND BIRTHDAY PARTY this weekend! It has snuck up on me & we have some serious planning to do in the next few days, but it's going to be a blast.
- For this segment on our pastor. I thought it was entertaining. I think they managed to catch every clip of him screaming or talking about sex in seven minutes. I also appreciate Grace playing with the kids in the yard wearing skinny jeans & heels.
- That tomorrow I WILL reply to about six thousand emails I've been slacking on.
- For our assistant & friend Larlar, who held down the fort while we were gone.
- For our new assistant, Carissa, who we've just met but who seems really sweet & efficient.
- To be back at home, where we belong for now. That feels nice.

Uhm, where have the past 2 years gone? I have no idea. Wes is TALKING up a storm. It just happened one day. We can have little convos together and it's amazing. Love it. He's also peeing in the potty (randomly)! Has Elias ever done it? It was more exciting than the first steps. Seriously.

I can almost hear E saying it, if i listen closely:)
Loved the clip on Mark, we watched it last night.
My birthday box is getting shipped today with his toys from here, so won't be there for the party. Sorry, I just kept finding things to put in. Will need a webcam this weekend, for sure! Love you.
