Thankful, A Year in Review 2013

I'm sitting here this Thanksgiving morning sipping my coffee and listening to my children play pilgrims upstairs and thinking how blessed I am. This has been such a sweet year just living our crazy life. I guess that's why I have not been here very much (really at all), but I am determined to record some snap shots for me to enjoy days and years from now.

Thankful...

An (Almost) Year's Worth of Blessings
this may take a couple days

a ballerina that is not a baby anymore


a crazy toddler, but still my baby


marching for Life with my family


school spirit despite a hard loss


a third birthday in the Hundred Acre Woods

February


little girls playing fairies in the forest



first haircuts


learning to ride a bike


lots of heart yummies on St. Valentine's Day


enough snow to do some sledding and finally get this picture in his baby bunting

a five year old fairy birthday

March


Dr. Seuss's birthday, another reason to have fun

children who are old enough to play board games and beat me


sipping chardonnay on warm Spring afternoons while my children make chalk drawings

children who not only eat their vegetables but love them


my girls in bonnets


Springtime picnics


the joy of discovering nature even in your backyard
