My Happys For The Day

I have another crappy head cold settling in so instead of grumbling about it, I'm going to write about the things that made me HAPPY yesterday.
Catholic Schools Week is this week so the boys have all kinds of fun activities planned at school. Yesterday they kicked off the week with a prayer service. Noah was asked to read one of the petitions for that. He was so excited--this was his first time to get up at church and read. We practiced and practiced Sunday night. He came home from school on Monday with a huge smile on his face and said it went really well. He said his teacher was sitting nearby with her paper in case he needed help and he said he didn't need her help, he did it all on his own. What I wouldn't have given to have been there! Just to see the proud accomplishment on his little 6 year old face was one major HAPPY for my day.
When I got home last night from working, Todd asked me to come in the basement and look at something really quick. Him and the boys surprised me with a desk and bookshelf that I had seen REALLY CHEAP in the Walmart ad Sunday. I had been thinking of using the rest of my xmas money to get it for my craft table. The bookshelf came free with it. They bought it and put it together for me and then got it all set up in the storage room with all of my scrapbooking stuff. My storage room isn't the most glamorous place, but it's clean and it's Aiden proof. Meaning I can keep all of my stuff spread out on my desk so I can work a bit here and there and no one can mess it up. It's also on the opposite side of the wall from my computer so I can run over and print things out when I need to. I'm so excited. So when Aiden naps today, I'm going to organize all of my stuff in there. Woohoo. I'll have to post a pic when my camera is back up and running. Dead battery.

How awesome is that...and Aiden proof-YEEHAW.
You need you a fridge and some music (knowing you, the music is probably already there)...and the toilet is right around the corner...you could stay down there for days*!*
Can't wait to see that photo!!! :)

That's an awesome surprise. Todd is a great guy to think of that & get it done with all the other work too:) It will be awesome to have a set space to craft! It's been on my wish list for awhile. Enjoy it! Looking forward to the photo.

Todd is always doing nice things like this for you. He is one considerate husband, and a great dad to involve the boys in making you happy too. You are a lucky woman.
