I’m not drinking from THAT!

I walked into the game room and found this sweet little scene:

Clearly, Remington’s baby dolls were having a picnic, and OF COURSE I wanted to take a picture. I loved that the play ironing board was their picnic table. I loved that the baby washcloth was their tablecloth. I loved that two of the babies were chowing down in the bathtub. But something didn’t seem quite right.

I thought of the old Sesame Street ditty, One of These Things is Not Like the Others. Before snapping the picture, I reached out and removed the little doll potty from the scene…and Remi freaked out.

“Mommy! That’s full of hot chocolate! WHY would you take all their hot chocolate away?”


I’ve been gone for a while, traveling and enjoying some precious time with my family and lots of new and old friends. But we’re back now and I have lots to share with you. So please…hang around!

Thanks for stopping by.


I am thankful

Something about autumn and harvest time encourages me to  dwell on all the things I’m thankful for.

Today, I am thankful that we’ve had two days in a row that were beautiful and sunny (which we’re used to) and cool enough to keep the windows open ALL day (which we’re definitely NOT used to).

Today I enjoyed pulling out the ingredients to make hot chocolate (with milk, of course, and marshmallows) and drinking my first cup of the season…and I was thankful for all the small things in life that bring such big happiness.

Today I am thankful that I’m blessed to be home with my babies…

…and that we are in the position to be able to take off right in the middle of the day to go visit the pumpkin patch, just because it’s  beautiful outside.

Today I am thankful that we had the whole place to ourselves, which meant great photo ops and plenty of room to run around.

Today I am thankful for my sweet family, and the many ways they bless my life every day.

Today I am thankful for all of you who take time in your busy day to read my blog. I know your time is precious and I appreciate you.

Their final picks

And you know what? I think it would be so encouraging to hear what you’re thankful for today, too.  So please, leave me a comment below, even if you never have before. (It’s easy!)

Thanks for stopping by!
