Thankful Tuesdays: Mess and mayhem

It has been mess and mayhem over at our place, as we try to pack up to move home. Every night, the hubby and I stay up late to sort and pack things into boxes, since its near impossible to do any packing while the boys are awake (especially with regards to the baby, who views every box as an adventure playground to explore).

We're glad to be going home. The past year over here has been a great one, and we did enjoy the time we spent together as a family. However, it's never the same as home, and we are looking forward to the move back, and being able to meet up with friends (and of course, the local food!). After all, its hard to sink in roots in a place that is foreign, and just transient grounds.

This week, amidst all the craziness, I am thankful:

:: For the official arrival of spring (I wish it was warmer though!). Its always a delight to see all the blooms bursting forth on our walks around the neighbourhood.

:: That the boys manage to find their own ways to entertain themselves while mama is busy trying to sort this or that:

This is how the kitchen looks everyday after baby J is done ransacking the drawers while I cook. 

Junior J on his diving expedition.
Complete with pillow raft, scuba helmet and a furry friend plus lunch.

:: For all the help we've received from our friends over here. And for family back home, who have been helping to clean up our place for our return.

Very blessed! And I need to run and pack somemore, meanwhile, do share your blessings!

  1. Such lovely pictures! I'm looking forward to spring too (we recently had a dumping of snow). I long for green grass and flowers!

    1. I know what you mean! Winter has been here for far too long!

  2. Good luck on your move home...Blessing to you and your family!

  3. I like his scuba helmet! It looks like they'll be more helpful unpacking than packing at this point in time haha! hope the move goes well and all the travelling is smooth.

    btw, I've changed my blog to just1apple (not drappleaday anymore), so I don't think any of the previous linkies work now unfortunately. just thought I'd give you a heads-up about it =)

    1. Oh, ok, thanks for letting me know! Why the change?

  4. Hey, glad to hear that you're coming home! Enjoy the remaining time there. :)

    1. Hi Ing, glad to see you around in cyberspace! And thank you!
