Happy Friday, lovelies!!! This week has been another busy one for the books and I have a fun and short list of FAVORITES to share!!
This week has me like this..
Apparently even Buddha has had a busy week for the books. Just kidding our cat's are just lazy and look for any excuse to sleep, this is his favorite way to sleep. He covers his eyes when the light is on, even our cats are DIVAS!!
One of my FAVORITE pictures taken in the middle of the week hands down has to be
We just got home from jujitsu and she asked if she could play a little before our bedtime routine ( bath, teeth brushing, story and bed) and I think a little imaginative playtime never hurts anyone. Next thing I see is this sweet girl dressed as "mom" and I LOVED it! Talk about melting my heart she said she was practicing being me because " I want to be a mom just like you". Those are those mommy moments when you know you're making a difference. Sometimes those moments aren't that noticeable so when they happen make sure you take that time and thank God for sending you that little reminder that your efforts aren't going unnoticed.
My girls got a phone call from their Nana ( my mom) this week and asked if she could hire them to pick up some sticks and pine cones in her back yard. They are learning to work for their own money to buy things they want. So we headed to my parents and they went to work.
Of course they stopped here and there for a quick song and dance. Since my kids were working and I just got off work, I seized the moment and did one of my favorite things. I sat in my parents wooden rocking chair under the sun and read.
I cant help it, I have always been a book worm. There is something about picking up a book and reading page after page that I find so peaceful and exciting. I don't like reading on nooks, kindles or on my phone, I love the feel of an actual book in my hands, feeling the pages and devouring every word. I LOVE the smell of old books, the older the better. Mr V laughs at me because he just isn't a" book nerd" like I am, but one of my most FAVORITE smells, is the smell of a library. There is something about it, Ill walk in close my eyes and take a big long whiff of the air and I always whisper the words mmm smells like knowledge.
As I sit here writing this post K1, K2 & Mr V are at a Father/daughter dance. This is K1's third year attending the dance and her final year because next year she will be in junior high and she will be going to actual school dances, with boys! Oh it makes me emotional just thinking about how fast she is growing up!! I have a love/hate relationship with that but that's a whole other post.
Look at those pictures, how precious is the love between a father and his daughter!! Pink bow is her 3rd grade year and glasses is 4th grade! I cant wait to add her 5th grade picture!! I couldn't help but snap tons before they left here are a few of my Favorite. K1 loves the "duck face" pose and since she is 11 I don't say anything, lol!!
K2 was so excited for her first Father/daughter dance. She was nervous and excited it was precious!! I cant wait to get her picture from the dance so she can have her own memories like K1! You know I couldn't resist taking pictures of her as well. K2 isn't sure about the whole " funny pose" she is my serious child and is trying to discover where she fits on the humor scale, as you can see in her picture with Mr. V. I just adore her!!
Well that end's my Favorites of this week. K3 has a friend over while big sister's are out at their dance. Pictures to come later.
Have a blessed weekend lovelies.
