One Thousand Gifts (#92-110)

My truck loaded with food, clothing and gifts to give away.

92.  My giant Suburban, which allows me to transport mountains of food and clothing to give to those in need.  I am always amazed by the sheer volume of stuff will fit in the back. 
93.  Chilly temperatures that kept the snow from melting for FOUR whole days.  I adore winter.
94.  Having a house packed with noisy boys.  I love when my son has friends over to play.
95.  Getting to watch my boy and hubby perform together at the school chorus concert.  They make a great backup band. 
96.  Listening to NPR while I drive in the car.  I am addicted.  
97.  Clean sheets.
98.  Wrapping presents and then stashing them away so that they can magically appear under the tree on Christmas morning. 
99.  Homemade lotion bars (instructions coming this week). They do wonders for my dry, cracked hands.
100.  The fur on Brick's ears.  It is insanely soft.
101.  Buttermilk biscuits and homemade blackberry jam.  Yum!
102.  Silly breakfast conversation with my boy.  He says the goofiest things when he first wakes up in the morning.
103.  Putting on pajamas that are still warm from being in the dryer.  It's the perfect way to warm up on a cold winter night.  
104.  Being able to pack 100 boxes of food from the reserves at the food pantry.  It was such hard work, but knowing that it will help those in need brought so much joy to my heart.
105.  The start of Christmas vacation.  Two weeks without school is going to be wonderful!
106.  The way my hubby desperately misses our boy when he spends the night away from home.  I don't know what he is going to do when the boy heads off to college. 
107.  A grilled PB&J sandwich.  I eat it about once every two or three years, and every time, it brings back fond memories of my grandpa. 
108.  The annual Christmas pageant at our church.  I love that it is delightfully old fashioned and low tech. 
109.  My MacBook Pro.  I have been truly spoiled to have such a wonderful computer.
110.  Watching my boy try to blow a bubble with his gum.  He works so hard, but can only blow the tiniest bubbles.
