Danielle from over at Sometimes Sweet did the cutest post in numbers and I thought I'd play along!

SIX + : The number of pets we have now. Two dogs, 3 lizards, hermit crabs & earth worms. Aiden loves animals so much and adores all kinds of "creatures".... yesterday he said to me " mom why is this roly poly squirting out cheese?"... obviously, that caught my attention. Needless to say a roly poly was having babies! Chris grabbed his camera real quick and Aiden got to see 100 little teeny tiny white roly poly babies be born. crazy!

ONE: One month until Chris' big movie adventure begins!

TEN: The amount of times that I painted with the kiddos this week. Seeing their creativity soar is so life-giving for me.

TWELVE: The number of swimsuits worn this week. We are just living outside with the sprinklers, water table and teeny backyard pool. 

TWENTY ONE: The amount of times I woke up in the night this week with the babies.

TWO: The number of nights that I stayed up and watched movies with Chris- popcorn in hand!

THOUSAND + : The number of giggles, hugs and snuggles this week.

TWO: the number of teeth that Appie got this week!

COUNTLESS: The number of prayers and the gratitude that I have for this life and these people. Last night before bed Aiden said to me..."Mom, this is the greatest house in all the world." I said... "Is it the greatest because of the house or because of the people in the house?" His reply: " Oh mom, you're silly.  It's the people! "

  17. Love this. out of curiosity, what kind of painting do you do with the kids? I want to do more creative things with my kids but fear I overcomplicate things and don't do it enough. is it just as simple as giving them paintbrushes, watercolors and paper and allowing them the freedom to just create?

  18. Love this too. Out of curiosity, when you paint with your kids, is it just as simple as giving them some paint brushes, watercolors and paper or canvases and encouraging them to just create? I long to be more creative with my kids but fear I overcomplicate things a bit.
