Firstly, I am thankful to God, Who has given me all these things to be thankful for AND Who has planted the seeds of gratitude into my heart and mind. (Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. James 1:17)
I am thankful for the warm weather that allows the kids to play outside.
I am sooo thankful for whoever invented sidewalk chalk (we call it chalk-talk) so that the kids stay busy forever on our tiny balcony.
And I'm thankful that it is non-toxic since it has become Abbie's favorite food. When I tell her not to eat it, she grins at me and shows me the wet chalk and says, "Eat it!"
I am thankful for income tax returns. :)
I am thankful for extended and very extended family... specifically my neice and my brother's mom-in-law who are making it possible for Kaytie to take piano lessons!
I am thankful for little toddlers' who have toothy grins and who, like little parrots, repeat what they hear.
I am also thankful for little boys who LOVE their mommy and tell me over and over, "Mommy, I luf yooo!"
And mostly, I am thankful for a wonderful husband who works VERY hard so that I can stay home and be thankful for these grimy-fingered penguins who have taken over our home. :)

Amen. Our kids can be so taxing, but I've found them to be my greatest teachers too.

Happy TT to you!

Your children are just precious.

Isn't the Lord just wonderful? Hey, we're waiting on our returns too, I've spent it 10 ways already! (in my mind...)

Wonderful post! Such a beautiful family! There certainly is nothing like little kiddos to bring a smile to our faces by the things they say and do. My kids certainly do that daily!
