Day Six of Gratitude: Togetherness

I don't have much to say today, because we're all in our house together today, and that's what I'm thankful for.  
It's been a pretty low key day.  N. and I got some girl time when we went together to the church dedication service for a dear friend's baby.  I love that she spent most of the service on my lap. When I don't have a baby on my hip, I'm always reminded how much my other babies need my attention and affection.
The rest of the day has been spent cleaning up some of the clutter that accumulated from the week, preparing menus and a meal for the week ahead, and switching out Halloween decorations for Thanksgiving ones.
The kids have been hard at work on their own drawing projects on the pads of logo paper their dad gave them from his new work giveaway stock.  J. is watching the Browns game he taped earlier today, and is glad he can fast forward through the suckage.  I spent some time trying to help J. back up contacts on his old phone so he can activate his new one.  I even put a few pictures in L.'s baby book.  (What?!)
Overall, a productive day thus far.  Maybe it's the extra hour from the daylight savings switch over, and maybe it will all fall apart at meal/bedtime as it often does, but right now it's a pretty good day.  Hooray.

Hooray for productive days, especially when they're unexpected!

I need to have one of those today. My Halloween stuff is looking so forlorn :(
