Those Random/Simple Times

Long ago, before kids, Josh and I used to garage sale for legos for Josh.  Once we came upon this great find.  It was a rubbermaid tote over half full of legos, and a few other things.  At the time Josh sorted out the legos and was going to throw away the other toys.  But instead I bagged them up and said, "someday we will have a little boy and he will love these."  Well, the other day the kids and I found that bag.  It was full of little match box type cars and action figures.  I really thought the action figures were too advanced for the kids but instead have found that they love them.  Abigail calls them the "kids" and I find Ethan playing with them daily since their discovery.  

This little video, my boys playing with action figures and Abigail singing in the background, is really one of my favorites.  I love it because these are the times that I love as a family.  Doing nothing amazing except hanging out together and enjoying simple things.
On this special St. Patrick's day remembering times like this makes me feel lucky indeed.

this on had me smiling and giggling. First of all---Ethan and his daddy---two peas in a pad. I love how E is just all very different from A. I love how he watches daddy, then looks to you when daddy does. He's just wanting to be just like daddy.
And then there's sweet A--singing her heart out while coloring---not a care in the world ;) so very sweet. Then her 'embarrassed' reaction :) is she not USED to the camera by now?
thanks for posting...and I must say--I'M ALL CAUGHT UP!

Recreating History

I love reading with the kids.  We learn so much together through books.  Right now in the van we are listening to a book that is taking us ...
