H is for Happy!

I'm loving participating in Alphabe-Thursday with Jenny Matlock! I'm all about looking for things that I enjoy cause there have been multiple mini-sicknesses....colds, ear infections, such....in our household this fall, and I'm all about looking for the good and making things HAPPY! So here are some things that make me happy!!

Thing #1: Isaac, my eldest...my sensitive child....so very proud of him, and all that he is! He is smart, self-motivated, kind, sweet...he's awesome!

This picture is not recent, of course....he's 9 now, but look what an adorable lil fella he was!!



Thing #2: Adam, my middle child. Love his heart, he was the baby of the family for over 6 years, and it hasn't been easy on him to transition to the middle position. He is also the most like me, so he drives me crrrrrrazzzzzy at times!

Again, not a recent pic...but he looks a lot like Robbie here, I think, so I chose this one to share! :)



Thing #3: my sweet baby Robbie! The child that God knew we needed to make our life complete! He is SUCH a good baby and we are so blessed to have him in our life!

This is my favorite picture of him because it reminds me of a print from a magazine from years past!



Thing #4, or Thing #1 since I "had" him first...my darling husband! What a blessing he is to me. I am so honored to be his wife and partner in this marriage. I cannot imagine life without him!

This picture was taken on our anniversary when we were expecting Adam....back when we were only a family of 3!



I could go on and on and on about my fantastic family members and show you my sisters, my parents, my nieces and nephews, but I will focus on some other things.....

I love me some Jersey Shore! When I was alone quite a bit this summer (well...alone with a nonverbal infant!) I got totally hooked on Jersey Shore and Real Housewives of New Jersey. They are just so different from anything I've ever experienced, I got hooked in!



C'mon, admit it....you wanna yell out "It's T-shirt TIIIIIIIIIIIIIME!" just one time!!

This is a local restaurant chain called Pal's, and it is superb, ya'll! If you find yourself in Southwestern Virginia or Northeastern Tennessee, look 'em up cause you won't be disappointed! Local folks who have moved away make a point of eating there when they go home!



OK, again, I could go on and on with this, but I think I will stop there. Needless to say, I can find many things that make me happy. I'm very blessed! I hope that you, too, find happiness today, and please stop by again!

Cute post! Thanks for sharing your photos of your sweet family:) I have recently heard of Jersey shore but haven't watched any of the episodes yet. I guess the girl named Snooki that is on that show was on another show I watch, Cake Boss. All the guys were ga ga for her...Funny...yeah so unlike my real life...

I am loving AlphabeThursday as well. It's so fun visiting all these blogs. I've never watching Jersey Shore, but have heard a lot of quoting from it. Fun post!

Three boys??? You are really blessed. Girls always grow up to suffer from hormonal rage when they are teenagers.

Teresa said...

How wonderful! Sometimes we need to take the time to reflect on how great our lives are.

Jenny said...

I love your blessing list.

This is something I try to do each morning when things are stressful here. And each time I walk away feeling like I have more blessings than sadnesses.

I have never watched that show...perhaps I should just so I can yell that phrase and startle my husband!

Thanks for the smile and the sharing here today on our stop through Alphabe-Thursday.

This was truly a happy post.

A+

My sister recently admitted to being a closet Jersey Shore lover. I never went further than watching The Hills lol.
