Six Silly Things that Make Me Smile...

Penny tagged me in this meme. We all need to focus on the things that bring us happiness more, instead of wallowing in the things that annoy and upset us. Quite frankly I really need to do this meme today since there were quite a lot of annoying things that happened today!

My hard working hubby. He has been working two jobs for most of our marriage and yet still finds time to spend time with me, enjoy our children, and help me out at the drop of a hat. Today was a prime example: I came home from a playdate with a migraine and he took care of the little ones for a few hours so that I could sleep it off. He's the best!

Our three year old. I was amazed at how much she changed when she turned one and it seems the same thing is happening now that she's turned three. In the past month, she's been developing her imagination, loving dress-up, learning how to use the potty, speaking clearly and in real sentences, and a million other little things that add up to a delightful little girl. I am so thankful that I am her mama.

My sweet Little Man. He is still our baby, but is getting so big! I love the fact that he is still sleeping in the big bed with Mama and Papa and likes to snuggle in the mornings. He is starting to really get a personality, too! His favorite things right now are cars, trucks, and birds. He is such a sweet boy: he loves to hug, blow kisses, and wave to people! That being said, he is all boy. If I find him climbing up the wrong side of the banister again...

The anniversary flowers sitting on our kitchen table. They are so pretty and still look just as fresh as they did on Friday. They really make the kitchen look beautiful!

Enjoying new things with our children. One of the nicest things about having children (in my opinion!) is getting to enjoy things with them. In the past few weeks, we've been doing many simple things with our little ones, but because they've never done them before or don't remember doing them, everything has been so much fun! I've never really cared for swimming in the ocean, but taking the kids into the water last week was such a great experience! Going for rides on the carousel, ballet lessons, sliding down slides, swinging on swings, eating a popsicle on a walk, playing with the hose, watching the birds on the bird feeder, and playing endless games of Candyland are so much fun now that we have little people to share those experience with!

Simple skirts. I received my skirts in the mail awhile ago, and I have to say that I love them! Not only are the comfortable and easy to care for, but I love the fact that I know exactly what I am going to wear as soon as I get up. Boring for some women, but extremely comforting to me!

Tag, You're It!

Great list! I was going to ask if your skirts arrived. I love mine, BUT the baby keeps trying to pull them down. :-O

Hope you have a better day today!
