She is sparkle and sunshine. Joy and delight. Strong willed and determined. She is half of me but more of him. Passion all wrapped up in one small girl. "Though she be but little, she is fierce." -Shakespeare A little bit of Valentine for my BitBit, my #littlegirlandy#andyletterboard
It's Valentine's week and while my hubby and i have spent many valentine's day and sort of feel like it is just another day for people to go out and buy stuff and have huge expectations (wow doesn't that sound romantic, i sound cynical) and truthfully early on we have had some bad valentine's day experiences. but we want to celebrate in a fun way for and with the kids.
since February i have been leaving them little hearts with things i love about them on their bedroom doors. with it being Valentine's week i thought i would leave them a quote on our Letter board.
Here is Golden Boys.....
A letter board to the kid who made me a mom. For the many many adventures you have taken us on Sports, star wars, grooming, clothes and shoes scattered on the floor.......a little bit of childhood and growing up all tied together. With three days till valentines I wanted to say i love you and i'm glad you are mine. (When "Winnie the Pooh" won't fit you improvise, "Pooh Bear") #andyletterboard
Our Snow day turned into two days and a two hour delayed start today.
Tuesday we woke up and had breakfast and then played a Monopoly game with the kids.
once that was over we had a little bit of snow that we could go out in.
after my little bit out in it, i went in the start lunch and Little girl called from the door that she needed my phone. she wanted to make a picture of something she made. she went out and took the pictures but i didn't look at it until the next day.
i just love her cute snow angle. she is so creative. i loved that she used her hat on it and have the angle a face and lashes.
at thanksgiving my dad he a huge piece of marble that he was saving for an outside countertop
Golden boy was trying to get in the shed one morning and knocked the piece down.....it cracked
my mom said it had been at the lake house forever so not to worry about it. that dad could get another piece. i asked him if he could break a chunk of it smaller so that i could put my coffee pot on it
he took a hammer to it around the edges to get to my guesstimated size and the ran a sander along the edges to make them somewhat smoother
i just love the way that it came out
the second picture shows it a little better
now i just have to decide what else to put on the wall above my new coffee bar
i really want a shelf and these are the ones that i am leaning towards
i read a lot of books by Lynn Austin last year so i am sure that i will read a few by her this year.
i read Finding Father Christmas and Engaging Father Christmas years ago. I remember when the first movie came out and being bummed that i wasn't able to see it. we went to visit my parents for Christmas this year and my mom taped Finding Father Christmas and Engaging Father Christmas (which just came out this year) and i was able to watch them. I really liked them both. It wasn't till i got home that i realized that there was another one in the series. the movie made it look like there would be a third movie but i didn't know about the third book. i placed the order for it on Amazon and i get it in the mail on Tuesday.
Keeping with the same author, Robin Jones Gunn, who has been a favorite author of mine since i was a 10 year old girl.......
I love looking through the family Christmas photos that we take every year. They go back further than 2010 too. We have ones with just Golden Boy before Little girl was born and my Hubby and i took them before we had kiddos.
