haveaho evening



Sadly, Benson has started to say "haveaho evening" now. At some point he's going to connect all the dots and say it the right way and I'm going to be sad. He gets to be bigger and smarter every day and I often find myself missing the babyish things he not longer does. sigh.

Anyway, now that it is November (!) we get to think about being thankful around here. And not a moment too soon, either. Last night Ben and I were both a bit ragged and worn out and I kinda didn't really a whole lot feel like giving the lesson for FHE (I know! How could I?!) but luckily duty won out and I gave it after all. Which was good, because seriously, nothing changes my attitude like a good "I'm thankful for..." chart. This is a tradition that Ben's mom has done, well I don't know how long but at least since I've been in the family, and I LOVE it. It is now hanging in our kitchen, ready to be so covered in thankfulness until you can't seen the paper's color anymore. I really do have so very much to be thankful for.

And Banks just climbed onto my lap with the mintyest fresh breath. Hmmmm.... I think he's got a secret stash of gum from the raid of Ben's backpack the other day.

I'm blushing. That was Ben's and I'd hoped it would go overlooked. :) The list tends to get more pg-13 as time goes on. haha At least it does at Ben's mom's house.
