Thankful, Thanksgiving

I am here in Alaska for Thanksgiving, my Momba is such a spoiler and surprised my boys and me with plane tickets to spend this wonderful holiday with her. Wow! We are loving it!
Tomorrow is the big day, its late, and I've just finished surfing the web and emailing my man when I thought I should say Happy Thanksgiving and jot down a quick list of what I'm thankful for. Here is a small list, there is a multitude of things I am ever so grateful for, but for now this will have to do!

I am so thankful for my husband and the hard work he does for us and the love he gives. I am thankful for my boys and all the love and joy they bring to my life. I am thankful that my needs are always met. I am thankful for my Heavenly Father and my Savior. I am thankful for my families and friends that enrich my life and bring me such happiness. I am thankful for this life and all that I have.

Oh, and I have to say I'm thankful for humor, without it life would just be a bowl of mush!:

I can't hardly believe it...

So I've wanted a laptop for a long time. My Momba got me one a few years ago, but I wasn't able to get it to do the things I needed for school. Its a cute little computer that will be R's for playing PC games and learning how to type, and for him to write stories and keep a journal.
So, since I earned my AAPE and then enrolled in with a bachelors program I thought I deserved a new laptop with all the trimmings.
Well, I shopped around and I picked out a Dell Studio 17. I mean, this thing is so rockin' awesome I just can't believe it! I got a discount for signing on as a member to Dell's website, then I got another discount for using my student ID, and I got free shipping, pretty sweet huh?!
It came yesterday, its a grey swirly design with a pink trim. My friend M's son said, 'Is that pink, why?!' I told him I was a girl and I earned it!
Another sweet deal was I got Microsoft ultimate office for 91% off from U of Phoenix online and I downloaded that onto this computer yesterday too.
So now I can be anywhere I need to be to do my homework (or blog, or email!) I no longer have to be stuck in the computer room! I'm looking forward to those assignments I will have out in the living room/dining room/or sitting on my bed.
