After 5 years of being a stay-at-home mom, I found the wonder of mothering slowly starting to get crowded out by the mundane feeling. I realized our world seems to surround people with the negative, and complaining about blessings seems totally acceptable. So I decided to fight against that "normalcy" and focus only on the positive. I look back to my first year as a mom when everything was new and keeping house was fun and I aim to have that attitude again. This blog is my outlet to showcase the daily miracles that surround me in my blessed life as a stay-at-home mom so that I will never forget the wonder of it all.

Handmade Pom Poms
Felicity and Logan have a new obsession....FOOTBALL! This pleases their dad VERY much! Zac started taking them to our local high school's football games this season and they have literally LIVED for Friday nights. They love everything about it; the game, the players, the band, the people....everything. They didn't even mind sitting through an entire game in the rain. #23 has red hair so naturally, Logan has a very favorite player. And Felicity loves the cheerleaders. The kids play football at home. It started with them both playing the game but as Felicity loved the cheerleaders more, the game changed to Logan playing football, and Lissy cheering for him. She didn't have pom poms so she used two beanbags I'd made for her last Christmas. The poor thing was waving around these beanbags cheering for her brother. Well, I couldn't help myself and the morning of possibly the last game of the season, I whipped together a set of pom poms for her in Bearcat colors, crimson and white. She was thrilled and Zac said the minute the cheerleaders came out, Felicity asked for her pom poms and waved them through the whole game.....in the rain. They were like wet mops when she brought them home. :)
