Happy GratiTuesday! This week we're thankful for:

  1. The kids' imaginations--they say the FUNNIEST things at this age. Some of you have heard this story, but Blake recently stood up in the bathtub and pointed...(ahem)... DOWNWARD...and excitedly announced "Look Mommy! My TAIL!" Then tonight, Sophie had a full (imaginary) telephone discussion with her friend Ryan about a birthday cake. Funny stuff!

  2. April 30th was a big deadline for us at work, and our boss took us to lunch to celebrate. We went to my favorite restaurant, Gobi Grille. It was an awesome treat!

  3. I interviewed a young lady this week that will help watch the kids this summer, and I think she'll be a great addition to the summer "family." The kids warmed up to her right away, and she works as a para educator for the school district during the school year...so you know she must be good with kids!

  4. We bought a LOT of containers, soil and rock for our container vegetable garden, and Brent hauled all of it without complaining a bit. He's a workhorse. There's NO WAY I could have done that without him! (Side note: Remember the plants I was growing downstairs under the grow lamps that were looking AMAZING? I put them outside and they shriveled up and DIED. ALL OF THEM. Now we have to go BUY plants to put in our containers. Grrrrr...I think we watered them too much, so their roots were puny. I'll be doing some research before next year's planting, because I really want to master this vegetable garden thing. I need to channel my inner 'Grandpa Schuler'.)
