Happy Thoughts

This past week the kiddos and I have been quite under the weather. I truly am such a baby when I become ill with a cold, but as you know I could not just stop being a momma. We watched way too many movies, can't recall making a single wholesome meal and the house became an absolute wreck. Rather than focus on all the negative though I will share a few of my happy moments as of late...

- Both the kiddos learned how to ride their bikes without training wheels. What a scary thing to learn, but both of them were brave and did a spectacular job. The Mr was the one to thank with this process. I just stood on the sidelines and cheered my heart out.

- The kiddos are at the age where chapter books are riveting. I have read till my throat screamed in pain both the Bobbsey Twins and The Secret Garden thus far. My favorite part is hearing what they thought of the reading. I can see their little imaginations going wild!

- Ellie did a school project on peacocks. It reminded me of all the school projects I did with my father. It was so much fun seeing how excited she got about the whole process even though she has double ear infections and a fever that is tough to kick.

- Before I this cold I went running TWICE! This is such an accomplishment for me since my year of ailments. It was only a mile and I did walk a tad and my lungs agonized afterwards, but I still did it! I take this as a new beginning to a better self.

- KJ has started calling Ellie, Elle. It really is the cutest thing. So grown up.


Also I wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to you all for the input on my wall colors. I love to know everyone's thought's and it seems it was an unanimous decision to keep the greige trim. Needless to say it will stay.

Oh, I love this post Paula!!! I adore the quote on the image. It's perfect! xo

Sorry to hear that you've all been under the weather. We currently have something going around our house...it's not fun. We call our Ellie, Elle, too!

This picture is phenomenal. And what a fun time in Ellie and KJ's lives, to see them developing in so many ways. Glad to hear you're on the mend too, Paula!

Love this photo of your kids. You've captured wonderful everyday moments in your children's lives that one day you will look back upon and be so glad you wrote them down.

This is such a great photo of the kids, and so exciting that they learned to ride their bikes! I also loved the font you used. Would you mind telling me what it is?
