Today I am very thankful for all my supportive friends in the blogging world and the real world. You all know who you are - thank you for being there for me!

Here are some other things I'm thankful for right now:

New stamps from The Cat's Pajamas (a set of clear Thanksgiving stamps will be released next Tuesday, October 13th)! I used the new stamps, buttons and glitter to make today's card :)

Beautiful fall weather here in Conifer - crisp, sunny mornings!

My job. I'm thankful not only that I have a job, but I am also lucky enough to have a job that I really LOVE.

The health and happiness of my kiddos.

Our family pets (Tasha, Pickle, Sally, Aspen, Bailey and Sandy) who give us unconditional love every single day :)

Being only 6 weeks away from completing my bachelor's degree! I'm doubling up on classes for the home stretch, but it'll be worth it to be done before the holidays.

School shows! Jamie is playing "Pete Moss" in the 2nd grade "Save the Plants" show next week. We have been practicing his part every night for the past week :)

Still being able to remember enough math to be able to help Nattie with her algebra homework!

Great card and happy list. I'm so happy about the weather right now. I haven't been able to help Alec with his math for 2 years. I warned him when he started advanced math classes. Thankfully he has his dad :)
