I am thankful for the people who gave us baby clothes. I am just amazed at how many people helped out without asking and I am VERY thankful for all of the help that people gave us.

Thankful for Albert Joseph Rogers

I am thankful for the 95 years of life that my wife's grandfather got to live on this earth. Jill's grandfather, Albert Joseph Rogers, passed away Monday night. He was 95. I am thankful that we made it to see him with the new baby last Friday. I am thankful that all of his daughters made it there to say goodbye, before his passing. He was a blessing to this world.

Thankful for the Internet

I am very thankfulf for the Internet for a lot of reasons. However, today I am particularly thankful for this tip on how to unclog a toilet. Here is the deal, one of our toilets clogged this weekend and we were all ready to pay a plumber to come out to fix the toilet. We have had problems with stopped up toilets ever since we had a new "water saver" toilet installed (apparently it's a law that you have to have water saving toilets).

Anyway, since our toilet gets stopped up all the time from our youngest kids using flushable wipes, we decided to get a snake to fix the clog. I was spending a lot of time trying to get the snake to fix the clog. Then my wife found this awesome tip on using dish soap to unclog it, and amazingly enough it worked!

So today I am thankful for the Internet and the many times it has saved us money (this time on plumbing bills).

Thankful for my kids

I am thankful for my wonderful children, Matthew (age 11), Adam (age 6), Hannah (age 4, almost 5), Joseph (age 2 almost 3), and John Victor (3 weeks old, going on 4).
