If you showed up at my house unannounced this is about what you would see: me in sweatpants, a shirt, glasses, messy hair. This is my happy. Not the clothes...but the


smelling my kiddos hair when they get out of the bath
the digging in the sand for 3 hours
making dinner as a whole family
watching chris and aiden work out in the yard, he loves to shadow chris.
I love to feel the sun on my face.
I love to daydream
I love giggling as aiden brushes his teeth, we call it "teeth treats" and he uses strawberry flavored toothpaste.

I love popping popcorn with Chris at 11:30 and watching movies till late.
The way ainsleigh runs when she thinks macy is coming to lick the food off her face.

Family bike rides.

Happy.
This is my happy.

  9. I love how you constantly remind me to appreciate the everyday things. (I avoided the word 'little' because I don't want to de-value these previous gifts)

  38. just stopped for a long over-do visit! Looks like things are great! Your family is precious. I couldn't help but notice the pics of you riding without a helmet! Please, please, please choose to wear one! I know you are being careful and going slow but you cannot control others. Protect your little angels' mommy!! Also, it will instill the importance of helmets for them and then maybe they will never forget theirs either! I say this out of LOVE. :)
