Let's feed the birds!

                                                  Breaking & tossing the bread.

                                              And of course eating some of the bread!

                                           Posing w/ momma & showing off said bread.

                                                         Gettin more bread!!

                                               Isn't he the cutest bread breaker ever!?

This is one of his most favorite things to do! He asks alllll the time to feed the birds. I love the look and smile he gets when I say "want to go feed the birdies?" Oh the little things! Good times!

Life is beautiful

Today was a gorgeous day! The weather was nearly 80 degrees, the sun was shining, and the birds were flying and chirping and enjoying Spring. One bird must have especially loved our chaotic yard and loud kids.. or at least loved our rosebush because it picked that bush to make her nest in. The kids are amazed by it and honestly it makes me pretty excited too. I mean, there will be new life in the nest soon and we will get to see it all happening just by looking out the window. This picture does it no justice.. it's nearly 9pm and starting to get dark but I ran out to get a photo so you could see all three little eggs!

Isn't that exciting? New life... happening in our yard. My kids will get to experience it and see how life is going to come from those little eggs hatching and how that mama is going to be there to protect & provide (wormies) for her babies. They keep wanting to look inside, and we let them look but not touch. Thankful my dog isn't bothering it either (It isn't up very high). This is the first year since we have lived here that we have had a nest. Exciting right? I guess I am easily amused ;)

Wednesday morning laugh

This morning my three year old asked if he could tell me a joke. Of course I said "Sure, Bud". He then asked me this: "How do you wake up lady gaga?" and then before I could reply he said "Pokerface". LOL. I cracked up! I mean, yes, I have heard this already (from my 8 year old daughter) who heard it on a Disney show I think (nice) but it was like two or three months ago. He remembered that? Just decided to bust out with that joke? It really isn't that funny but man alive was it hilarious coming from him as clear as day. Yep, laughter is the best medicine. :)

Terrific Thursday

Everything about today was terrific. Terrific weather, terrific time as a family, just terrific all around. We even went outside after showers in our PJ's for an evening family play time in the yard. It's always a good time to swing! Even better when mommy & daddy are their to push you "higher"!!
I love my family. My kids are the best of me. I thank God for these little blessings. I am so thankful for days like today that really ground you & remind you what is truly important.
