I'm so grateful for my family. We were able to spend the entire weekend with everyone and it was nice. No agenda. No schedule. Just get up, hang out and enjoy our time together. Here are some sweet pictures of everyone.

Yesterday we had lunch at my mom's. We always eat at noon so we were stuffed until we went to bed last night. Lots and lots of food! I snapped a couple of pictures but with so many squirmy kids and camera dodging adults, I didn't get much.

Then I went Black Friday shopping. That was stupid. I went by myself but I should've taken an entourage as nasty as it got. I was jabbed and shoved and had to climb over a display just so I could move! Crazy!!

Wordless Wednesday and a Birthday!

It was my girl's birthday. She was excited, You Guys. Excited. I was excited too.

You see, that girl and I, we are tight. She's like the moon set in the sky for me. She wakes me every day with a touch of the cheek and an "I love you, Sweetheart." She asks me how my day was and she squeezes me as tight as she can. She brings my life a constant presence of sunshine, positivity, and wonder. So making her happy gets me excited.

For her party we made cupcakes. We blew up balloons, we danced and we opened presents. We partied like rock stars. And my girl sat back and reflected upon it saying, "oh mama, thank you so much. I loved everything." For this I am humbled. There is a greater power that grants gifts like her.
