thankful thursday

I know I have said this before, but I am so thankful for my family!  My husband had another week long spiritual formation retreat this week, and I am home with Baby W!  I can't imagine what it would have been like if my mother-in-law had not been able to come and stay with me!  She came early Tuesday morning and is staying until I get home today.  I would have had to wake up extra early to get Baby W to daycare, but Mrs. K has been wonderful!  We are fortunate she has been willing and able to help us out.  Baby W just loves her!

I am also thankful that I will be able to see most of my immediate family this weekend! My parents and three of my five sisters will be getting together for my birthday and the GBS 5k! I love spending time with my parents and sisters.  I'm sure we will play lots of board games and watch Jeopardy together!  Here is a picture of all of us (and my oldest sister's husband) from Christmas 2005.  This was the "funny" Chrismas Card take:

Family means everything to me and I thank God everyday for blessing me with such a fabulous one!

Thanks A! So funny, read my post today too. As usual, same wavelength. And...I've already got my weekend inspiration ready, and it's about family too. Haha! What are you going to do with W, when you want another one? Have two helpers?

Can't wait to see y'all! However, the way I'm feeling right now I'm not planning on doing the 5k. I'll talk to you about it later though. Love you!!

Haha L looks so out of place! I love your family too!!! Your parents did something right when raising y'all. My husband says he wants all girls and I always hope that if that's what the Lord gives us, that they are all as close as you and your sisters!
