Great and Simple Thanks

I originally started this post on Saturday, but never got the chance to finish it. And now, it's Tuesday, and I can't believe I haven't posted in a week! I don't know how much I'm going to get the chance to stamp and play and post this week either, since all my kiddos are on break this week from school.....so I will be busy with them, instead of doing my own thing.....but I did get to sleep in until after 10:30 this morning, so I'm grateful for that!!!
Now onto what I originally started on Saturday!!!

Well, I have to start off with the simple thanks.....that's this card, very simple, I think, and very quick and easy to do.
My GREAT thanks comes in this way: I went to a baby shower last night for a gal I know, and had to leave just as Kerry was getting home so we didn't have time to talk at all. When I returned home, we were able to catch up on not only the day, but the week, really. It's been that crazy, that I haven't even had a decent conversation with my husband in days. We own our own business, but he still sub contracts for the guy he has worked for for over 10 years. This week he told Kerry that he would give us a week's worth of pay without Kerry having to work when the baby comes in April! Wow! That's like paternity leave!!!!! YAY! I can't even tell you how excited I am. With the other three kids, he's been able to take like a day or two, and those were mainly the days I was in the hospital. This is going to be incredible.

Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!
