Ready! Set! Go!

The next month is going to be absolutely crazy in the Cooley Casa. Here is just a preview of what our month holds:

1. Garage sale this Friday.
2. D finishes his semester.
3. NaNa comes for a visit - FINALLY!
4. Packing.
5. Trip to Dallas for Pops' birthday.
6. Moving. No we are not moving back to Dallas we are just moving to another town in Northern IL.

Of course this list does not include all the daily fun things that take place with the toddler. I am sure there will be trips to the park, play dates, a trip to Monkey Joes, walks and lots of laughter.

Thankful Thursday

There is laundry to be folded, shirts to be ironed, tubs and toilets to be cleaned but I wanted to take a minute and write a Thankful Thursday post. A dear friend started doing this on her blog not too long ago and it is such a good idea.

Today I am thankful for my husband. I could probably list 100 reasons why I am thankful but I will spare you all from having to read them and only post 5.

1. He is a wonderful daddy. Eleanor's face lights up every time he walks in the room. She loves to spend time with him and even when he is busy reading or working on a paper he always takes time to love on her. He gives her a bath almost every night and gets her ready for bed.

2. He prays for our family. I almost always get a little teary eyed when I hear him pray for our sweet girl.

3. He desires to honor God in all he says and does. Daniel, like King David, is a man after God's own heart.

4. He has worked hard for the past 20 months so that I could stay home with Eleanor. This has sometimes meant staying up really late or getting up really early to work on school stuff.

5. He washes the dishes every night after dinner. Enough said!

Eleanor is shocked and appalled that I am sharing her age with you.

He Is Risen!

Yesterday we celebrated our Risen Savior with our friends the Tudtud's. This was our second annual Easter celebration with their family after church and we had a great time. Eleanor and Seth hunted eggs and ran around the backyard and then we headed in for a wonderful brunch of fruit, apple pancakes, sausage, bacon and homemade cinnamon rolls. YUM! How thankful we are for our dear friends and the connection we share through Christ!
