Thankful Thursday: Cookies & Christmas

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 Christmas. The fact that God sent his only Son to this earth to save someone like me is totally mind-blowing to me!! I am so thankful that we can celebrate that each year with family time, traditions and gift giving!

I'm thankful for being so blessed. As I looked under our Christmas tree at all the presents and watched my loved ones all around the tree I couldn't help but feel so blessed. That fact that we have each other to be with and be so spoiled with things made me feel like I had more than I ever deserve!!

I'm thankful for cookies. Yup. I said it. Christmas cookies are SO good. I am SO thankful that I got to eat WAY too many of them this year!

Ronnie's List:

I'm thankful for the great time with a bunch of family over the last few days. Presents are awesome, but they pale in comparison to the time spent with family. I love each and everyone of my family members more than they will ever know, and feel so blessed to have each one of them in my life. I'm one lucky dude.

I'm thankful for a talkative daughter. I'm not so sure that I will always feel that way, but for now it's awesome. Mckenna is at that stage where she gives every word the old "college try" and even though many words sound exactly the same, it's still cute as all get out.

I'm thankful for thoughtful gifts. One thing my family is great at is thoughtful gifts. They're always listening throughout the year for what we all really need and not just that latest and greatest gadget (although there were a few of those to play with as well). Most gifts that Mandi and I received for Christmas are going to last a lifetime and that rocks!!

So, what are you thankful for today?
