Simple Woman’s Daybook – December 7th, 2010

For today – December 7th, 2010
Outside my window...  the sun is finally shining after a day filled with rain yesterday.
I am thinking... about how much fun I had last night out with friends.  Got to see Amanda Gray and Whiskey Savage, the Chris Gardner Band and Nashville’s own Jerrod Niemann. 
I am thankful for...  the show Little People Big World.  After 6 seasons and 229 episodes, tonight is the series finale of LPBW.  I’m so sad to see the show come to a close.  The Roloff's have been such an important part of our lives since Caitlyn was born.  The show first aired about a year after she was born so we couldn’t have asked for better timing.  They have showed not only people in the states but around the world what acceptance of differences is all about.
I am wearing... sweatshirt and exercise pants
I am creating... our Holiday Cards – thanks to Costco’s one day processing, I’ll have them tomorrow afternoon!
I am going...  to take a nap today while the girls rest.
I am reading... Handle with Care by Jodi Picoult.
I am hoping...   That I get a good nights sleep tonight
I am hearing... Elmo saying goodbye and Hanna saying bye bye back.
Around the house... unfortunately there aren’t too many Christmas decorations around.  We have decided that since we’re going to be gone for a week – heading to San Diego for Christmas – that we weren't’ going to put too many decorations up.  We’ve got a few things up, including the lights outside and will go get a tiny tree, but that’s about it. 
One of my favorite things... is our LPA families!  All of you are so special to me and I love you dearly!
A few plans for the rest of the week…  Hanna has her 18 months check-up tomorrow – how is it possible that she’s that old already!  GEEZ!!  Not much else until Saturday, when we’re headed to my cousin Greg’s annual Holiday Party.  It’ll be great seeing family!
A picture that I am sharing... helping rake the leaves.

I too am sad tonight is the last LPBW :0( Sad its coming to an end, but understand the Roloff's need to get on with their lives. I am grateful for the show. It has made raising Caden that much easier :0)

Wow - what a fun night out you had with friends hearing great country music!
I'm thankful for LPBW too, and sad that the show has come to a close. We have a few of the seasons on DVD for Simon.
Love you and your sweet girls dearly too!
Cute picture of your adorable girls!
