Thankful Thursday


Today I am thankful for.....

~ sharing audio books with my husband. I finished one and recommended it to him and he listened to it too. 

~ the good report my big boy got at his doctor check up this week.  He is healing up correctly after his tonsillectomy. 

~ hearing my little guy singing. He always amazes us with all the songs he knows.  He has learned the books of the Bible and gets almost all of them. I help him a little if he gets stuck or starts repeating.  I told him now we will have to learn the fifty states like Caleb did when he was little! 

~ our travel agent who has helped us plan our vacation this summer. She has been so helpful, and we are excited about our trip.

~ my little niece being my pen pal this summer. I've enjoyed exchanging letters this summer with her. 

~ beautiful sunsets and little rain showers.


Have a day of blessings!

Children's book: Dinner for Dinos




About the book:
Dinner doesn’t have to be a disaster - just ask the dinos! Your kiddos will love this silly story about a rambunctious crew of dinosaurs who are making mealtime extra fun while learning how to grow up healthy and strong by eating all sorts of yummy foods.
Mealtime can be challenging with little ones, and Dinner for Dinos is a fun, exciting way to show your kids that eating healthy foods to grow big and strong doesn’t have to be yucky or scary.
“My mom says those who eat good foods Will grow up big and strong. I’m eating all the greens I can To make my tail grow long!”
Children everywhere will love joining goofy Stego, Bronto, Raptor, and Rex as they help make dinner, say their prayers, and clean their plates, making mealtime the best part of the day!

My thoughts:
This is a cute board book about dinos eating dinner.  My little guy and I enjoyed reading it together.  The illustrations are bright, colorful, and fun, and we enjoyed the rhyming text. 

One of the things I liked was the action verbs used.  While this seems like a simple book with fun dinosaurs, it does have some good little lessons too for toddlers like choosing healthy foods.  It also has the dinosaurs saying a prayer before their meal. 

I recommend this book to you and your favorite little preschooler.

Thankful Thursday

I hope you had a nice holiday yesterday!  We spent the day over at my Mom's. They made some yummy ribs and chicken on the grill.  Plus some homemade ice cream.  Then in the evening we went to watch fire works.

This week I am thankful for...
~ my husband getting up to go to work every day to provide for our family. After our late night last night watching fire works I'm sure it was hard to get up!

~ hearing my boy talk and laugh again.  He is doing much better after his tonsillectomy. He's eating more now too.  He made a little progress each day.  He goes to his follow up next Tuesday.

~ my funny little guy and the things he repeats.  This week I had told him not to drink too much water and showed him on his bottle to drink to this line.  He was telling me how he wanted to drink more and I said but you don't need to drink too much.  He said so what's the solution?  It made me laugh because I say this to him often. 

~ viewing the beautiful wedding pictures from the wedding day of my husband's youngest brother.  The photographer did a wonderful job!  You can tell she loves what she does and is so good at it. 

~ strawberries, cherries, cantaloupe, and watermelon.  Yummy things we've had this week!

~ living in this country and celebrating our freedom!

Have a day of blessings!

Thankful Thursday

I hope you have had a good week.  We have been home after Caleb had his tonsillectomy on Monday.  Things went well for the surgery and he is recovering.  I'm glad I can be home to care for him.  We have been able to keep the pain manageable with the pain meds.

This week I am thankful for...

~ having a husband who prays for me.  I'm sure I've said this before but I appreciate it when I feel his prayers.

~ my boy doing well in his recovery. He is taking his med well and drinking water like the doctor said to do even though it hurts.

~ my little guy so sweet in taking care of his brother.  He doesn't exactly understand, just knows that his brother's throat hurts. He picked out balloons to bring him when he got home and helped feed him the snow cone before he left the surgery center.

~ the love and prayers for Caleb as he is recovering. Our small group gave him a basket and ice cream treats.  He's gotten cards in the mail and texts from friends and family checking on him.  It's nice to know people care.

~ having my Mom's help in caring for Titus during this week.

~ being able to be home this week with nothing on the schedule. After being busy and having several activities the past few weeks, it's been good to be at home. We've watched TV and not done too much.

What are you thankful for today?  Give thanks!
