I am Thankful Linky!

Today I am linking up with Molly at Lucky to be in First for a Thankful Linky.

So I am going to start serious and then have fun with it.

Here are the things I am seriously thankful for in my life:
Nothing too earth shattering... I bet some of the things you are thankful for too, so I won't go on and on. Just this:
1. My husband is amazing and I have awesome parents and family

My hubby and I a few weeks ago at a wedding.... and below: my family and me for Thanksgiving 2 years ago!
2.  I never want to take my health for granted

3. Shelter and Food... I have a roof over my head every night and food to eat... that is a luxury and I need to remember that!

4. Friends.... none of us can live without them!

5. This blog has been such a blessing and I've made new friends and I like how it challenges me to be a better teacher and it just keeps me thinking all the time.

6. I have the best job in the world...well, besides maybe being a taste tester for See's Candy. I love it!

Here is one reason why:
That's me this little one is thankful for....well, after cats that is.

And here are a few others:

I will say this year I had a lot of kids thankful for a variety of C-V-C words.... hmm, can you tell what we have been working on. I think it is called, "I am thankful for this word because I know how to spell it and I don't feel like sounding out a longer word that I may get wrong."
But too cute!

So now that I was serious... here are few lighter things I am thankful for:
Are you familiar with this? Well, for the sheer entertainment of watching your little ones dance this is the best 99 cents you can spend. Click {HERE} to download it.  I had them perform it for their parents... pure entertainment!
However, I am not thankful for the extra calories as I just get a plain latte the other 11 months of the year!
And last is  a string of other things that randomly came to mind that make me happy:
and THIS is why I am thankful for airplanes... you can go places like this:
Thank you Molly for this great linky and time to reflect on how fortunate we are!

And last but not least....we have a winner! As you many know I was running a giveaway last week.... and I'm proud to announce our winner:


  1. I so need to look up the turkey tango. Gotcha on the taste-tester thing. I always think that if I wasn't a teacher I'd want to be the person who names the paint colors.

  2. Adorable post!! I am so thankful that there are other fonts in the world, too!! Your random thoughts are so fun!! Great post!
