Thinking About... Our two nieces (shown above) and our nephew (shown below) that live close to us (we wish the rest of our nieces and one other nephew lived closer!)...they are my brother and sister-in-law's beautiful children.  I adore them. They are beautiful. Cyrus our nephew-and godchild- who is turning "ssree" (3) this week is seriously one of the most hilarious, quirky and most thoughtful little kids ever. like ever. And the twins...did you see that picture above?! Need I say more?!! They are smiley, affectionate and just the cutest little ladies around. It is so fun having twins in the family!! The way they interact with each other, love each other, steal each others food, making each other laugh and also making each other cry....its just so darn beautiful...they will always have each other. They are amazing...and my brother and sister-in-law are truly AMAZING for raising such beautiful children. What patience. What love. What courage. What strength. I am just in AWE.






Watching...FROZEN. Yet again, but this time in our backyard!! We invited some friends over for Food Truck Dinner (in our hood) and then a backyard movie....it was seriously a perfect night for young and old alike. 







Listening to...A terrible scream/shriek Charlie has developed now when he is angry or not satisfied with the food I give him....its like the Dinosaur from Jurassic Park- the velociraptor (that is how my husband, the spelling genius told me how it is spelled, because God only knows what a hot mess that spelling job would have been is let up to me. Thank you spell check. Thank you Mike. I am saved)...anywho, its a piercing God-fearing noise that I am not sure if my ears can tolerate much of, so I am really hoping this a quick phase ... please sweet Jesus.

Thankful For... A family day. Oh wow, I cannot remember the last day we intentionally set aside time to have a fun family day. It was glorious. And much needed, I do not know how our lives get so busy, but they do! We went to the Del Mar race track...Gosh, its beautiful, right by the water and the horses are just gorgeous. No big winners ;) but I figure with this family....I AM A HUGE WINNER!!!






What about you? What are you CURRENTLY up to?
