Thankful Thursday: Kisses & Opinions

It's thankful Thursday time! We all have so much to be thankful for and we love to take this opportunity just to write down each and everything that comes to mind. Please take this time to share with us what you're thankful for as well. If you have a blog expressing your thankfulness, please share the link! Without further ado, here's what we're thankful for:

Mandi's List:

I'm thankful for moms and dads. My mom and dad are back in town and seeing them is awesome. We have so much fun with them and I literally never can get enough. What's more, my mom spent the night at our house on Monday night, and when I woke up, she had folded ALL my laundry. She's so good to me!!

I'm thankful for kisses. Mckenna isn't a big kisser (we'll be thankful for that when she's in high school. Ha!) But she does occasionally give us kisses and when she does they are with an open mouth, and super wet, and I love every second of them.

I'm thankful for texting. I'm not a huge fan of lengthy conversations on the phone. And I'm not a huge fan of having to take for 10 minutes, full of "hi" and "how are ya" to just establish a random meeting time or something of the sort. So texting is perfect!

Ronnie's List:

I'm thankful for my three little cantaloupe that could. In a not so stunning development, the hot Arizona sun has wiped out most of my garden. I still have some acorn and spaghetti squash hanging on as well as melons and tomatoes. I'm mostly interested in the cantaloupe however because just once I would like to walk out there in the morning, cut it off the vine, and then eat it for breakfast. How cool would that be??

I'm thankful for a wife with a different opinion than me on many different topics and issues. Even though I still think I'm always right *wink* it's nice to hear a different side of the story from someone that I respect and trust implicitly. I don't think we'll ever see on to eye on certain political issues, but secretly, deep down, I kinda hope we never do. Keeps things interesting!! 

I'm thankful for "goodnight" kisses. I put goodnight in quotes as they do not only happen at night, but during the day as well. So I guess they are more like "nappy time" kisses. When I get Mckenna ready for her naps before I hand her off to Mandi to be fed, I always tell her I love her and pucker up for a kiss. In the past, I've had to force the kiss on her. Lately, she's leaning into me for a nappy smooch. Love.

So, what are you thankful for today?

I totally agree about texting, Mandi! I am also not a big phone talker, especially for little things like you said.
And I agree that it's nice to have differing opinions from the person you love/trust/respect most. Opens your mind more I think.
