I promised to show some pictures of my birthday/mothers day/anniversary present and I'm finally following through. Along with some other fun surprises, I got THIS:
We love eating outside. We HATE the stupid "helicopters" that bury our deck. Yes, nature, Gods creation, beautiful....all that, but those things are ANNOYING. I think they are finally done falling so we'll sweep one last time. I also need an umbrella. If anyone finds one that doesn't cost a zillion dollars, but isn't the cheapy plastic flimsy kind, let me know and I'll give you a present. The table is great because it sits 6 comfortably and came with a bonus:
2 lounge chairs with little ottomans and side table. Fun, fun, fun. I can just imagine myself sitting out there with a good book in the warm summer sun, a sweet tea in my hand...birds singing....peace....quiet.....I'm 70 and retired. No, I WILL enjoy these. I WILL take time to sit and relax. They will not just be another toy for Seth to climb.
Anyway, thank you to my husband who lovingly took the add that I cut out and strategically placed on his football paper pile (several times) and acted on my not-so-subtle hint. I'm looking forward to having many people over to sit on these chairs soon. Promise.
And simply because I live in awe of how wondeful God is to loan us these 2 little boys for a short time, I give you these "simple happiness" pictures--
Beautiful: (except for random ghostly white leg - some *stranger* stepped into the frame)
When did Seth get so big? Wow:
Be thankful. Be content. Be in peace.
Be completely sobered, amazed, awed, inspired, by these AMAZING parents who had to usher their 7 month old son into Christ's open arms yesterday. Wow. Take a few minutes to read about Malachi - Little Man of Steal HERE.
Ryan is our energetic, talkative, busy, smart and sensitive 4 year old. He is so special to us! He loves trains, sports, cars, playing *anything* with his brother. He is his Daddy's best friend and Mommy's special boy.
Seth is three! He is such a silly kid who knows how to make EVERYTHING fun. We can't look at Seth without smiling! He is Seth is a great big brother, has a sensitive heart, and just loves to entertain. Seth, I love your smiling eyes and your energetic spirit!
Reed joined our family in May, 2011. He's such a sweet mannered, quiet and serious little man. A good sleeper, a good eater, and a smile that lights up the room. He's a perfect fit in our little family and is SO loved by his big brothers!
