The conclusion of a short treasure hunt lead the kids down stairs to find the, BIG presents. A mountain and kitchen are now located in my basement. As Virgel puts it, at least the kitchen has a mountain view!
What a silly little boy. He loves to sit in our laps. He is starting to get his Daddy's sense of humor. The other day I asked him if he loved me. He said yes, then said he was "Daddy's Boy!" and started to laugh. What a ham!
Daddy took a picture of Ruston and Ani ran in and wanted her picture taken. She started with the modeling poses. Dad took about 30 pictures in different poses. It was very difficult not to laugh, but she was VERY serious about it!
I believe in pink, I believe laughing is the best calorie burner, I believe in kissing, kissing a lot, I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong, I believe that happy girl's are the prettiest girls, I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles.
Gonna Miss This
Your gonna miss this, Your gonna want this back, Your gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast. . . This song rings in my head every day, every moment, as I watch the kids play and laugh and act silly. I know . . . I am gonna miss this. . . much sooner than I expect.
Our lives are defined by moments frozen in time in our memories. I am no different. I remember my bicycle wreck in California when I was 4, moving across country with my family when I was 7, catching lightening bugs in the yard, my baby cow - named cricket, my grandma's visit, summers on the boat, my mom dying at 15 and life never being the same, meeting the love of my life, at 16, my wedding, buying my first house, the birth of my daughter, reuniting with my family, selling my first house, the birth of my son, loosing my father in law. All along the way learning lesson in life and growing up - which I have learned didn't stop at 18.
