gratitude day 4, cousins

OK I finally succumbed and ate a bunch of tootsie rolls last night.  And maybe a fun size package of M&M's.  Or two.  Or three.  But man, they are good!

Not gonna beat myself up about that.

Until I step on the scale this morning.


Yesterday, for our 25 Days of Gratitude we selected:

So we each chose a cousin and wrote a letter to them.  I even did one!  I have a favorite cousin that I used to write to all the time long before life got crazy with family and kids, and we do email each other occasionally, but there's no comparison to a hand-written note, right?

(Does anyone else have a kid who does his best work standing up?  I swear I'm constantly telling him to sit down to do his homework, but he concentrates better standing up as opposed to sitting down.  *shrug*)

Anyway, this was fun, and I hope that the cousins who receive the letters will enjoy having a bit of mail just for them!  We love all our cousins!

You're looking really good! I think you're safe to binge on some candy. And I have a boy who won't sit down either, it makes me crazy.
