another bright winter day

visiting with a neighbor for the morning

Miss L’s very happy and loud high pitched squeals

and the little laughs she gives us every once in awhile

making loaded smoothies for lunch

Tropical Traditions coconut peanut butter

my new SmartMom necklace

seeing Mr. A play with Miss L (he’s building her towers with her soft blocks)

helping my son make a birthday cake for his grandpa!

Mr. A making a snow man -hopefully the LAST one of the season. (it was actually a pile of dirty snow that he put a face on… but boy was he excited and proud of it!)

270. sunny sunny days

playing for hours in the sandbox with Mr. A

Miss L not taking an afternoon nap -and still being a happy little girl!

french onion soup

a quiet morning

sun on my face

almost all the snow piles melted

getting up with the sun

being outside almost more than inside!

spotting airplanes in the BRIGHT blue sky with Mr. A

staring a new Bible study

seeing so many neighbors outside

our first walk in the stroller of the season!
