Long overdue thankful list with photos...

I am thankful...

...that I recently came across a recipe for, seriously, what could be the best chocolate cake ever...which just happens to be vegan...(I will be posting the recipe this coming Tuesday)...


...that a young man in our town fixed up a go-cart, with his father's help, and now rents it to my son for 50 pesos a day, (roughly $3.50). My son can earn this money by being my servant for one hour. See? We all win...


...that the door of my dishwasher hasn't broken off yet...


...that my babies are THIS happy in the morning...


...for this woman, who regularly offers to babysit the twins...just because she loves them...


...that vegans can have chocolate ice cream, too...(Pictured below: a frozen dessert I made with almond milk, agave nectar, cocoa powder, coconut oil and vanilla)...


...for a husband who has the patience it takes to organize a family gardening project...


...for the men who work with us on our landscaping, and who encourage Johnny to help...


...for surprises!


...that the nine-year-old boy can get hours of pleasure from layering one phone book's pages over another. Apparently, once layered and closed this way, it is impossible to get the phone books apart, impossible even for two very strong men...


...that the 14-year-old girl thinks it's cool to saute...


...that my husband can buzz a one-year-old without making him cry...


...for peanut butter and honey sandwiches, my favorite food in all the world...



I am pleased to list this post @...

Hi
I'm not linking blogs to thankful Thursday anymore because it got to be too much of a hassle. I love all your family photos. You have a lot to be thankful for.

Jen,

I know this is an old post but do you happen to have a recipe for that vegan chocolate ice cream you made in this post?

I've got a little girls birthday coming up next month and she needs something vegan. Any suggestions are welcomed! :)
