Happy 11-11-11!

11-11 has been one of my very special days for a long time now and I have sort of dubbed it my holiday. If you are interested in the back story to see how and why it all started, please read one of my old posts here.

The reason why I love this day so much is because it is my opportunity to say thank you to all of those people in my life who have special meaning to me. I feel I have always been pretty appreciative of the things and people that I have, but since having children, I think I have become that much more thankful for the people that are a part of my life.

When I think about this day, I always think back to a quote that I started to love when I was in high school...

"Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Others stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never, ever the same."

There are so many people that have left footprints on my heart and for that I am truly grateful. I am so thankful to my family who have always been there for me and to my friends (new and old, those I have met and those i haven't) for making my life that much richer...

Hope you all have had a special day!!

...and on this special day, some cute pics of my little guy and girl. Colin got a new haircut today and although he has been a bit on the cranky side (I'm guessing those eye teeth are on the move again), we had a fun dinner time together. But first, Colin is starting to learn how to take his shirt off...slowly but surely I am guessing he will be undressing himself

Chris, Colin and Kailey...I love you guys more than you know. Happy 11-11-11!!
