Thankful Thursday ~ 2/7/19

~It is February!!  I'm so glad January is over and I got to turn the page on my calendar :)

~Groundhog Day is kind of a big deal in our house!  Not because we're excited to see Phil's predication (although an early Spring would be most welcome!) but because it is our youngest daughter's birthday!  Laken turned 12 year old and is counting down the days until she's a teenager :)  P.S.  Laken insists on baking and decorating her own birthday cake all on her own.

~We went to see "A Dog's Way Home" as part of Laken's birthday celebration!  It felt so good to get out of the house after the freezing cold temperatures of last week.  The movie was really cute :)

~Laken didn't pass out!  She had to get a booster shot and only got dizzy this time!  Last time she got a shot, she passed completely out and scared me to death.  I was really worried that it would happen again, but we took precautions (laying down and sitting for a while afterward) and she did just fine :)

~Prayers please!  My dearest Aunt Sherry who is 70 years old and has MS fell off a ladder a few days ago and broke her shoulder.  While we're very thankful that she wasn't more seriously hurt, she is still going to require surgery.  Your prayers are very much appreciated!

What are you thankful for today?



  1. Happy birthday to Laken. Sorry to hear about your aunt. Surgery is never fun. Thanks for linking up today.

  2. Happy birthday to Laken! We are thinking about going to see that movie. Did you like it?

  3. AHH - poor Laken. Glad she survived this shot :) haha & HAPPY BIRTHDAY to your baby

  4. Happy 12th birthday to Laken! She did a fantastic job with her cake! Glad you were able to get out as a family and see the movie. I watched the trailor and it looks really cute.

    Glad that Laken got along well with her booster shot.

  5. Happy birthday to Laken and glad to hear she did better with her shot. Sorry to hear about your aunt. Falls as we get older can often be more complicated. I hope the surgery goes well and she is soon on the mend. Have a good weekend.

  6. Happy birthday to your daughter and praise God she was ok aftermher recent vaccine.
    I'll wait until that movie comes to Netflix butmitndoes look good!
    Enjoy your weekend.

  7. Happy birthday to your daughter! She did a great job on her cake! That movie looks so cute. I enjoyed that actor as Laurie in the recent PBS series of Little Women. How good that Laken didn't pass out after this vaccine. I imagine it was pretty scary when she did before. I am sorry about your aunt and pray she has a good recovery.

  8. Happy birthday to your daughter and prayers for your aunt! Thanks for sharing with us at The Blogger's Pit Stop!

  9. Happy Birthday to Laken! That cake is lovely!
    I'm glad she didn't pass out--my daughter would get very dizzy and woozy when she had blood draws. It can be scary.
    I hope your aunt heals quickly and doesn't need that surgery!

  10. Happy belated birthday to Laken! My daughter used to pass out too and we'd always have to make sure we stayed the required amount of time after the shot. The nurse said a lot of teenagers experience that. Praying your aunt heals up quickly.
