thankful for (final)

it's pretty obvious, i have been slacking on the gratitude posts. 

so, let me just sum it all up here since november is almost over!!

1. my sisters (both blood and in-law). they are amazing. they are loving. they lift me up.  they make me laugh. they make me want to be a better sister.  i love them so!
2. my brothers (again, pete, included).  they take care of me.  they make me feel special.  they make me laugh and they even make me laugh WHEN make fun of me.  i couldn't ask for a better band.
3. my childrens. i'm all twitter pated with joy when i kiss their faces and see their smiles.  they are my daily bread.
4. my parents. 
5. cousins. aunts. uncles. and especially cousins.  my own kids and i have it so good in that department!!
6. family movies, games, scavenger hunts, jokes, songs, traditions, and more!
7.  the holidays.  spending time with all of the above
8. Most importantly, my Savior. 

and finally, i will leave you with a little gem from the past week...

Dyer Family Theme Songs




I ran into Duff at Fred Meyer this morning and our conversation led to singing this song.  It was then that I realized this is a Dyer family favorite right now.  It's so special to us that Keith played it in Joshua's delivery room. (sorry jenny)

A Post-surgery, healthy boy!   He was brave. He drank 12 oz of juice before leaving the hospital and ate a Sonic ice cream sunday (complete with a cherry, whip cream, and reese's) on the way home!  What a champ!

 And the handsome guy holding him was a champ too!! 

his voice is a lot higher (for now) and isla started to cry when she heard it because it made her sad.
