I think that it means a lot of different things. I think that this week I am going to focus on all the things that I am Thankful for as little and silly as they may be. I, too think that we never give enough thanks to the people that mean the most to us.

So now on to the few things that I am thankful for today.

I never thought that in this lifetime was we ever going to see gas prices in the $1.00 range again. This morning I was taking the girls to school and much to my surprise and excitement, gas is $1.99 at Holly's. Holly cow.
I am super thankful for that, as short lived as it may be ;)

I am thankful for the Food Network. When all we see on T.V. is sex, violence, and just bad things happening all over, there is the Food Network. I love it. Food is the cornerstone that brings people together. Who can be sad or upset when they are learning from the Food Network how to make the perfect turkey or a new way to make stuffing? For the last week and into this week the programming is all about Thanksgiving.

Yesterday I took my girlies to church. I am super thankful that they are well-behaved little girls. We sat through Sacrament meeting without any noise from either of them. I really am so lucky to have them. They are such good little girls. What in the world would I ever do without them? I don't want to ever find out.

(now would be a picture of them in their matching dresses, if I had a camera)

my loaner camera was returned to my father-in-law and my new camera has been ordered. It should be here on Wednesday. So Wednesday I am going to thank my UPS delivery person a million times and you will never catch me a day without that camera at an arms lenght away =)

What a great post! I am thankful for many of the things that you mentioned. I am glad that you are getting your camera soon. Sorry I missed your party, we did not get home until that night. I might stop by Wednesday to get the flowers, would that be okay?
