Subject: Wonderful Qualities. List every member who lives in your home. Include 5 wonderful qualities each member holds.

The Catch: You must include yourself.

Why: It's easy to just go about each day and forget to be grateful.

My own Handy Manny-he is our Mr. Fix it and it so comes in handy!
World's best husband and dad-I have said it before but it is still true, Lowell just gets better and better with time. It was amazing the change when I first got pregnant, and then when the boys came along and he continues to be such a help and awesome friend to the munchkins.
Best Friend-He is my best friend, my confidant, my silly boy--he promised to make me laugh every day when we got married and he does, such a goof!
Head of our Home-Lowell is exemplary as the spiritual leader of our home. He is well versed in spiritual things and always has a good answer for the difficult questions.
Good Worker-He also works very hard at his job and really anything he undertakes. He has won so many awards in the past couple of years for the good work he does and everyone just loves him at work.

A clown-Carter likes to make people laugh and be happy. He will go out of his way to be silly or make some joke (mostly physical comedy) to have you laugh with him.
Sensitive-Carter has an awareness of people's feelings and especially their "owies". He is always there to kiss them better even when they aren't visible.
Stubborn-That kid has stick-to-it-ness like you wouldn't believe. I always say they will grow up to be CEOs and inventors because they don't take no for an answer and like to push the limits.
Gentle-Carter can be so sweet to babies, animals, bugs, and even moms and brothers.
Cute-I know that is an odd trait, but hey you look into those big brown eyes and not agree!

Ditto everything from stubborn above, that is a trait they share!
Leadership-Davis is great at giving directions and making sure everyone knows the rules.
Memory-He remembers everything you say and can repeat it if necessary.
Snuggly-Davis is great at giving hugs and kisses, he is such a loveable little guy and seems to especially share the love with those who need it.
Friend-It has taken some practice, but Davis is becoming a very nice friend. He'll take your hand and love it if you play with him. He will go to great lengths to entertain Carter.

Hard worker-I am not one to sit around, I am usually chasing the kids or at work.
Loving mom-I may not be the best or the coolest mom, but I certainly love my kids and I think they know that.
Party Planner-I am good at planning parties, executing them I am only so so at.
Vacation Planner-I am also good at planning vacations, many many more than I will ever go on, but I am happy to plan them.
Photo Guru-I am not the best photographer, but the amount of photos I take and my extensive knowlege of photo websites makes up for it.

Thanks Kristen-That was fun and a nice way to think about my family members.
Becky, Jillian, and Kris if you want to do this too, feel free.

Okay now one from Jillian:

I am: a wife, a mommy, and a medical technologist
I think: therefore I am.
I know: my ABCs.
I want: a case of Haagen Daz bars, a massage, and a nap (all in one day)
I dislike: cleaning, organizing, and all things smelly or slimy
I miss: lots of my friends!
I fear: misfortune befalling any of my friends or family.
I feel: tired and silly.
I smell: stagnant lab air.
I crave: chocolate, chick flicks & social activities (sounds good Jillian, or a night of UVMOM to get all 3!)
I cry: when my cancer kiddos have tough days.
I usually: am on the go.
I search: the internet for all variety of things.
I wonder: as I wander.
I love: my cutie boys, being outside, seeing new things, traveling, my puppies, good food, my friends. . .
I always: need to clean something.
I worry: about my munchkins being healthy and safe.
I am not: trendy, stylish, well-groomed or well-dressed.
I believe: in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I know who I am, I know God's plan, I'll follow Him in faith.
I dance: playing DDR (poorly) with Lowell.
I sing: with the boys often.
I argue: political topics, don't get me started.
I write: on my blog!
I win: Risk--challenge me and you'll see (don't let Lowell tell you he won on our first date, he had way more guys than me and I didn't say anything because it was our first date!)
I lose: to Davis on Mario Party 8.
I wish: upon stars.
I don't understand: the stock market.
I can usually be found: sitting right here at work!
I am scared: of scary things (kidnappers, disease, etc.)
I need: a night out.
I am happy: most of the time, disregarding my worry-wart nature I really have been blessed with a positive disposition.
I tag: Lyndsie, Cyndel, and Scott.

Okay, I have a real post with pics to do, but I thought I would do this first and hopefully I'll get the other done tonight.
