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.

A Few Recent Moments

Someone got a good brushing.

And a good cuddle.
This girl loves to lay on her dog.  I guess a pillow that is bigger than yourself, always warm, and never complains IS nice.  I have similar pictures of myself laying on my dog when I was her age.

At Grammy's house, the kids get to watch T.V.
At our house, not so much.  :)
It has been interesting, and sometimes funny, to watch my kids learn about the T.V. programs.  This is a first for them as we've never had cable in our house.  I don't love them watching T.V. but I have noticed that often times, when they do watch it at Grammy's house, they cuddle up together.  Often times, all 3 of them will be crammed on to ONE couch cushion.  And when we go home on the weekends, they don't ask to watch T.V.  They know its just something they do at Grammy's house.  So for this season, I'm cool with that.  :)  I was also happy to discover that there is one channel, tailored to young children, that never shows commercials.  So, when they watch T.V., I only put on that channel.  I thought that was pretty nice.

Playing hide and seek in the evening.
My hiders usually hide the same place.....over and over.
Oh well, its still fun, and very funny.
When I snapped this shot, I was trying to get a picture of 3 blobs under a very wiggly blanket, with ALL of Felicity's VERY full dress skirt hanging out. 
"Hmmmmmmm.....I wonder where they could be!"

Kian took his first ride on the "tractor" with Uncle Donny.
It was the highlight of his day.
