Sixteen. Seventeen. Eighteen. Nineteen. Twenty.

Continuing my Thirty Thankful days...

#16 I am thankful for our mechanic. John's car has been doing weird things since May. Something has been causing the battery to drain overnight but neither our local mechanic or the dealership could figure out what it was. John thought he had figured it out a couple of months ago, but with our first big snow it started acting up again and he began having to jump his car every single morning. What a pain! Last week he took his car to the shop to have new tires put on. The mechanic called the next morning and said he found the electrical problem and it was less than $100 to fix! His car has started perfectly since then. It was such a random thing that the mechanic even found it but we are very grateful!

#17 I am thankful for my girls!
I love these two so much. They are sweet and funny and smart (they both have straight A's right now!) and creative and big-hearted and just a joy to be around! I love that they love and enjoy each other. It is such a gift to have a sister and I don't think that is lost on them. Last night, they gave each other facials and Sarah rolled their hair before bed using a sock and instructions from a video she saw on YouTube. It turned out cute...and curly...this morning but their smiles and giggles last night were music to this mama's ears. I am thankful for the privilege of being their mom!

#18 I'm thankful for my bifocals. You might remember I had to get bifocals after my visit to the eye doctor this summer. I don't love wearing glasses but I love that I can actually SEE when I do. I've been relying on them more and more--to read, to drive, to watch television or movies. They help tremendously and I'm thankful for them!

#19 This is kinda superficial but I am thankful for my new boots. Last month John gifted me with a pair that I'd been wanting and I really really love them. They're super casual but they're very comfy and VERY warm! My feet are happy these days.

#20 I am thankful for my couch and our big comfy sofa pillow. Those two things together make for the perfect Sunday afternoon nap! It was wonderful.

Mer, this is random, but are your boots suede? And if so, did you pretreat them? I bought some suede boots over a month ago, and I have yet to wear them because I don't want them to get ruined. Silly, huh? But the suede protector I saw recommended on-line is $11, and I just can't do that!

We have so much--both big and small--to be thankful for! Love the pic of the girls!

Your girls are so cute!!! It's like looking into my future! ha

I've been searching for boots... been thinking about using my inlaws Christmas $ to me for some... but they probably won't be casual. ;)

And Carrie - get that protector and wear them! No use letting them waste away in the closet! :)
