So blessed

The last few weeks, I have been stressed to the max. Hubbins job takes him out of town A LOT and the girls are at the bickering stage. I am not a fan and miss our nice happy routine. I had reached the point where I needed a mommy vacation!

Then this happened.....the girls just sat down and created this whole world together. They played for hours in harmony and laughed constantly. My heart seemed to overflow with pure love. I thought, "How lucky am I?" "How completely blessed I am!" There are hard days and moments where I feel like giving up. But there are also so many breath taking moments that refill my awesome bank. They remind me to breath and take in all my little joys.

Those twenty little fingers and twenty little toes, are attached to my favorite little beings. They bring so much meaning to my life and remind me of the person I want to be. They challenge me and frustrate me. But they also encourage me, and show me what love really means.
I am so blessed to have so much time with them; to have a husband willing to work so hard in order to keep me home so much. I am lucky to get to see all their little mile stones and be such a huge part of their day to day lives. 

So, on days when they are a little too challenging and frustrating, I will remember these moments and all the others. Because these are the ones that matter. They are the ones that make life so worth it. When all is said and done, I hope these are moments that stick out to them too.

Summer fun

Last week was so much fun and filled with so many awesome memories. So here is a small snippet of the fun.......

"The best night EVER!" Or so Ladybug called the fair. 
A fun girls afternoon of haircuts and window shopping. 
There were deep talks over lunch with this little Bug. 
We went to Lego movie for an outdoor movie night. We had popcorn and so many laughs.
