TToT - 3/31/17

Ten Things of Thankful
Happy Weekend! 

This weekend marks the end of March and the beginning of April. Are April Fool's Day jokes a tradition in your family?  I think it was my father's favorite day of the year. :-) He would start early in the morning with silly jokes, even calling us with them long after we were grown... sweet memories now.

I will be heading out on vacation this weekend, but I will still be checking in here. It just might take me a little longer to come around to read your posts and comment. It's been a busy week getting ready for the trip here. How did your week go?  Did you find some reasons to be thankful?

At Ten Things of Thankful we believe that there are many little things in our lives to be thankful for each day as well as the big things that stand out. Keep in mind that you are not required to list ten things if you can't come up with that many, nobody is keeping score, but do the best you can!  You'll find that once you get started, more things tend to pop into your head! :-) 

This week's TToT link-up will open shortly after midnight (Central Time) on Thursday night, and will remain open until Tuesday night, so you have plenty of time to work on your post.  Please check back next week for new links that were added in later, those folks will appreciate your comments too!

Thank you for  joining us here,
Josie Two Shoes :-)

Please take a moment to answer the following question in the comments section below.  It's a fun way for us to get better acquainted.   What are you looking forward to in the month of April?

  2. I am looking forward to nicer weather, more of a chance to be outside in the yard, Baby Emma's first birthday celebration on tax day, and at the end of the month I'm looking forward to an alone trip to NC.

    1. I hope it turns out to be a fun day for him, and for you! Isn't it amazing how fast they grow up before our eyes, and yet we can remember the very first moment we held them in our arms! My daughter is an April birthday child too, but she will be 42 years old... and that makes me feel ancient! :-)

    1. Easter was one of my children's favorite holidays,nand my own when I was growing up. We always had treasure hunts with clues leading to our baskets full of goodies, along with new Spring clothes to wear for Easter, and a day spent with our extended family and cousins we only saw a few times a year. Wishing you a wonderful Easter gathering!
