thankful tuesday, 1/3

 "the lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy." psalm 126:3
  • 2011 reflections and 2012 resolutions
  • visit with our dearest high school friends and their sweet little girl
  • new years / christmas celebrations with the padoyds
  • ella & rylee's pledge of allegiance duet
  • cousins giggling and snuggling while watching the snowman movie
  • sleepovers at grandma & cha cha's
  • champagne & a kiss a midnight (it's been a few years since i've been up long enough to see the ball drop)
  • 10 boxes & bags ready for big brother/big sister to pick-up tomorrow...see ya, wouldn't want to be ya!
  • friendly postman who saved the day in the midst of a bennett post office meltdown...b's new hero and i think mine too!
  • surviving additional b meltdowns at ikea, children's museum, grocery store, parking lot, driveway
  • hard conversations and sweet apologies
  • looking through old pictures
  • new easel creations...and those sweet feet up there as she creates lists of her own
  • putting bandaids on my kids' fingers...so fragile & sweet in that moment (even when there is no actual injury)
  • entering the world of little lego creations...the frustration of fragile assembly and the joy of new kiddo creations 
  • still loving bennett's missing "st"s...tickers, tairs, tuff, tars (stickers, stairs, stuff, stars)...and his "i am the da brudder" (i am the brother)
  • disaster football game nights turned better by switching off the game and turning on a movie
  • movie date with my littles
  • easy transitions back to regular schedules this week
  • good conversations, wine and treats with sweet friends...and silly regifting fun
  • cup of tea on cold cold coooooooollllllddddd mornings
