It's November 14, and I'm Thankful For...

...Fridays with my family.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Fridays! Our office is closed on Fridays, and most weeks, we use the day as a family day. There is no other day of the week where we can all spend time together and focus on family activities the whole day. It's just the greatest! I am so thankful that we are able to set our own office hours and close down so that we can spend time together. I'm thankful for fun Fridays where the boys get to choose what we do, where we go, and for the most part what we eat. They LOVE Fridays too!

Today, we spent some time playing at home, then we headed out for lunch (we've been cooped up all week with yucky colds. We still have the colds but are doing better today. PRAISE the LORD!). Tristan picked his favorite spot...Subway. After Subway, we headed over to HairForce so that my two big boys could get MUCH NEEDED haircuts. I think they lost 20 pounds of hair between the two of them!
Once the boys were groomed, we headed over to the park, to Sonic for slushies, then to some stores (my pick).

Once we were done with all that fun, we headed home for dinner and Tristan's current favorite show, "The Backyardigans". We were supposed to have dinner with friends (I had SO been looking forward to it), but we didn't want to give them our colds. So we just hung out together.

So today, I am thankful for Fridays. How about you? What are you thankful for???

Sounds like a perfect day! I love your sweet family!
I'm bummed that we didn't get to meet up for dinner but maybe we can plan for next week. Sam and Eli have been missing Tristan like crazy! They talked about him all day yesterday.
Have a great weekend!
