Finding Joy - Week 11

The joys:

* little girl pigtails and big girl pj's. oh i could eat her up!
* big JOY my niece hannah visiting for a week... eek! so much fun. as i catch up this week i will be sharing some of our fun adventures!
* landon's bed ready to be the guest bed for my niece hannah
* my boy creating a work space to do his school work on top of his desk.  
* finding one of mauryn's "kids" in the baby bed with a flashlight on... her "kid" was afraid of the dark :o)
* snuggled up together watching a movie on the ipod on a saturday morning letting us sleep a little longer. they were up super early excited for hannah's visit and landon's birthday.
* the birthday boy opening his birthday gifts
* blowing out candles on his birthday breakfast
* mini golf with my big kids on landon's birthday
* mauryn rocking the bonnet. she has found a love for little house on the prairie.
* playing just dance 2 with hannah
* a lego birthday party {post coming}
* one of our college kids gave landon his old football pads.  landon put them on with his jersey and was ready to play some football!
* new snack... popcorn, white chocolate, fritos, and m & m's.  the fritos add just the right amount of salty to the sweet. go make it. trust me, you won't be able to stop eating it. so good.
* finding self portraits on my camera
* my baby ready to take on the ski hill
* my boy ready to race.  yes, he is wearing purple gloves. he lost one of his and had to use his sisters old gloves.  a few years ago this would have bothered me that he was totally mismatched but now he didn't care and he was warm. joy in letting the little things go!
