Right Now....

I am...

Challenging my self to shoot in difficult lighting thanks to a challenge on Clickin Moms. (She is looking at Elmo on the iPad)

Wishing that our kitchen nook table got more natural light because Cooper plays there all the time.
Loving Coopers new found love for Legos and the creativity that it brings.

 Enjoying seeing the sun shine through the window for the first time in a few days!
 Reminiscing about when I got this Christmas Village as a child.
 Sharing Christmas traditions with my little ones.
 Laughing at this photo of Fina who can't understand why she can't play with said Christmas Village.
 Working on this photo shoot, which is coming out very cute!

Happy Monday everyone!

On this weekend after Thanksgiving I wanted to say what I am most Thankful for. Hands down, my healthy, happy children. I don't know how I lived so long without them. They bring me joy, peace, and purpose. And their relationship.... pretty thankful for that too. Watching them develop a friendship is so fun. They way they look at each other is priceless. I am thankful every day for their laughter.

So thankful for my beautiful family. (photo complements of JKB photography)

 Pretty thankful for this guy. Without him I would not be whole.
Last but not least, I am thankful for my dad's health. We had a scare this year which made me realize even more how important he is to me and to us. We love you Dad! So Thankful for him.

Who Says You Can't Camp In The Winter?

I cam home form dinner out with a friend last week to two sleeping children. Doug told me "go look at Cooper". I said okay, I was planning on giving him a kiss good night anyway. When I went into his room he was fast asleep inside his kid tent! Doug wanted to surprise him so while he was brushing teeth and getting ready for bed, Doug pitched the tent. As you can imagine Cooper was thrilled. I envy Doug for things like this. I get all stressed out about the details of the day and Doug just goes with it and has fun. We are so lucky to have him and not a day goes by that I don't realize that. I may not always show it but it is true. The tent stayed up for a few days, camping chair and all.

love is family. Love is a happy wedding. Love is a healthy family. Love is in the air. I am so blessed to have a family so full of love. I know there are a lot of photos here, but I wanted to share so many because it was such a wonderful weekend. We celebrated Michael and Casey, celebrated family, celebrate love! When we all get together like this I realize how beautifully complicated our family is. But you know what? I wouldn't  change a thing about it! Were crazy and I love it. Not bad looking either. When I see these photos I feel warm inside. Seriously, how lucky am I? I have 5 healthy brothers and sisters, two healthy parents, even a bonus parent (Eleanor) :). Family is all that matters. Period. We missed you Paul and family!
