Happy Happy Birthday

I really need to get caught up on a few things  because it has been busy around here!  Since I may or may not have some OCD tendencies, I will start from the very beginning. A very good place to start. 

After we wrapped up birthday and anniversary celebrations  at our house, we moved on to celebrate with some of our friends.

Here are the pictures from the surprise 80th birthday we helped out with. Special thanks to my mother for making the mini pies.  She is the best!

Best cheese spread ever.  Maybe Laura will share the recipe with us :)

Another one of Laura's famous recipes. Harvest Munch.

We wrapped October up with a Reformation Celebration at ULC in Boulder.  It is always good  to see Pastor Burhop and feed the students there.  

 Maybe before the week is over  I will be up to date.  I still have another million things to put up here. Stay tuned...

Blah blah blah

I am definitely a list making person.  I can't function without one.  Sometimes they are just in my head and sometimes they make it to paper. 

Primarily my lists are for groceries, chores, things I need to do or things I need to take somewhere. 

Today is November 1st and it looks like people are taking each day this month to write something they are thankful for.  I think that is a lovely idea. 

I also wonder why we wait for special occasions to be thankful.  There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about how truly blessed I am.  I have a wonderful family.  Sisters, parents, in-laws, I really think they are all the best.  I have a great husband and three beautiful girls.   I have an incredible church family and some really, really, really great friends.  I am thankful for my Lutheran heritage and my assurance of eternal life with all of these people I am so thankful for.

I think it's great to be thankful.  I just don't think I could fit all  my thankfulness in to a thing a day for a month.

That's just me.
