“Say Cheese!”

That is what I said right before I took this photo.

Their relationship makes me happy today.

Life has been extremely busy for our family the past few months. Starting next week everything slows down and I am taking a break and regrouping for the rest of the summer (more on that in a later post).

Until then, we are making the final preparation for the Love Rocks Run, which is happening this Saturday, and making sure these two are loved and cared for.

Naptime

alice linus sleepingI had big plans to write a post during naptime today and then I saw the laundry that needed to be folded.

Priorities ❤

Naptime is over and we are now in the midst of family time, Tom just got home. It’s beautiful here in Oregon so I think there is a walk to the park in our future. I can’t wait for the day I say that we will be walking to Anna and Abby’s Yard.

Soon ❤

Today I have a post over at Portland Moms Blog so lets just pretend I wrote that at naptime.

Deal? ❤

Happy Easter

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him.”  ~ Romans 15:13

Today I’m really emotional and extremely grateful.

He is Risen and through Him we have eternal life! I am so grateful for the love He shows me minute by minute and the hope He gives me in this broken life. I am extremely grateful for Heaven too!

Have a beautiful and blessed Easter! Happy Easter

This little girl LOVES her baby so much and that makes my heart happy today.

This morning I found her in the “apartment” talking to her little one about all sorts of things. When I asked what she was doing she looked up at me with a huge smile and carried on with out missing a beat.

I started cleaning up her room a bit and she came out holding Anna’s baby sling in one hand and her baby in the other. I put it on her when her baby first arrived but she wasn’t sure what to think. Today was different, she wanted to carry her baby close.

I can’t tell you how happy this makes my heart. Watching my littlest girl nurture her baby in such a loving way. We sat on the floor and I told her what a good mama she was. She rocked back and forth, padded her babies bottom and then stood up.

“What now Miss Alice?”

She ripped off the sling (with baby inside), threw it in the floor (with baby inside) and started playing with her books.

I picked up her baby, pulled her out of the sling and let her know that her mama loved her very much.
