Thankful ... a bit late ...

I am thankful for ....
  • a wonderful, fantabulous hubs!
  • Dinoboy, our boy who likes to delegate to get things done;
  • Twinkletoes, our first girl, who reminds us everyday to pay attention;
  • SweeTart, our newest kidlet, who gives us a run for our money every day;
  • my family and friends, near and far, who help to keep me sane (if this is what sane is);
  • our doggies, who catch tears and listen to secrets and dreams;
  • food on our table and a roof above our head (and all the stuff under that roof!);
  • our health;
  • many, many other things but too numerous to mention in a blogpost.

Our Cute Kid!

To heck with Thecutekid.com!  We're entering a contest for over $500 worth of prizes for a Cute Kid contest sponsored by Freckles and Fudge and Unexpected Surprises.

SweeTart is such a blessing in our lives, coming 6 years behind her sister and 7 years behind her brother, we forgot what it was like to be parents of a toddler.  She has a great personality, is very nuturing with other children if they are having problems (i.e. joining gymnastics class without their parent, have fallen down and no adult has run to thier aid, etc.) and she is a Scooby Doo lover!  She is wise beyond her years, speaks as if she were 5 (except when she says smells and it sounds like "fells")  She loves her brother and sister and her two doggies equally.  She enjoys going to Petsmart to purchase the crickets for Yoda and seeing all the other animals while she is there.  She participates in gymnastics class weekly and will show off to you, all you need to do is ask! If she didn't insist on sleeping with Hubs and me every night I might say she is the BEST TODDLER ON THE PLANET.  Of course, she is very strong-willed and opinionated as well, having sent, among other peeps, me to the time out chair for not doing exactly as she asked.  Even on the most stressful days, pushing her on the swing while she sings Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Mary had a Little Lamb or Itsy Bitsy Spider, can bring a smile to my face, and even more importantly, my heart.    If you think SweeTart is the cutest kid around, vote for her by clicking HERE

Special thanks to Daniel Pullen Photography and Michele Borton Photography for the photos of SweeTart.  If you're ever in the OBX, look Daniel up or in the Reading PA area, give Michele a shout! Thanks to you both for great shots of our SweeTart!
