Happy This Week

This boys makes me smile every minute he’s in my presence. He’s just sunshine and light.

He was so proud to see his artwork displayed at the local library. “Oh yeah! I nemember making that butterfly!” (That’s not a typo…that’s how he says it. And I’m NOT correcting him!)

I love seeing his little handwriting and how his words are turning into sentences.

There he is in his secret hideout. Pretty private and hard to find, huh?

When we were at the zoo, I captured this moment that just brings me so much joy. “Liv!!! Look up!!! I’m up here!” Doesn’t the look on her face say it all?

Happy tears. Happy, happy tears. There just aren’t enough words for how much I love these two.

She’s so happy here. That makes me happy.

I could seriously just look at her beautiful face all day. Sometimes I do.

Gabe doesn’t like me to take his picture anymore. But, of course, he makes me happy too. Soooo happy. Like when he says “Mom? Can I push the stroller?” Of course you can, Angel. Of course you can.

Then these bad-boys bloomed this week and I was in heaven! The people who lived here before us had the lawn professionally landscaped so it’s really beautiful…but there’s not a lot of color. I think they wanted low-maintenance. So when these bloom I just sit and stare. Gorgeous.

And last, but not least, my birthday. Matt and the kids always make sure it’s special. Even when it’s on a Tuesday. I woke up to this. Sigh.

Do you think he’s trying to tell me something?

The best part of the day? Around 4:45 when Matt and I were able to sit together on the porch with our feet up. And I was able to devour the new PW cookbook and think about all the delicious things I’m going to make. The perfect way to end the day.

What made you happy this week?

    Oh, and my happy? Keegan upset when soccer practice was over because he was ready to play a game! The rockin’ awesome social story that Mrs. K put together for Eli and the bus – AND the bus driver having a great, positive attitude 🙂 A busy week of sports – because as crazy as it gets I’m glad that they enjoy it and have the skill to do it.
