{97/365} Chicks!

We got 12 new chicks today!
I forget how little they are when they are first hatched.

 Travis loves them! He freaked out when he first saw them and then he wanted to pet them. He kept saying "Niiiiiiiicccccce!" as he touched them. He only grabbed one once, but even then he was pretty gentle.

 Isn't she pretty?

This is my life and I love it:)

{96/365} Super B!

Tonight was Super Hero night at Awana, so I made Brooklyn a cape and mask to wear.

She loved it!
One side is pink with a B on it and the other side is blue with a lightning bolt.
Her mask is reversible as well.

The husband discovered the game Angry Birds today.
 He was like this for hours.
Every time he would yell, Brooklyn would run over to see what all the fuss was about.
Aww, daddy immersed in the game with some sibling love going on next to him:)

This is my life and I love it.

Sharing milk and brownies with Jon while we watch our shows. **sigh** Small moments of bliss.

Gross! Travis barfed in my shoe. Thank God that flip-flops can go in the dishwasher.

Today was gorgeous! Clear and sunny:)
So, of course, we went outside. Duh!

This is what I wanted to do while basking in the sunlight:
Have you looked through this book? Yeah, me neither.

This is why:
This tray thing was filled with ICE this morning and now he is playing in it.
His poor frozen fingers!

Brrrrrrr! Soaking wet and playing in ice cold water.

Then he found the mud. Of course.

Gross, happy, muddy boy!

Oh how I love this little BOY!

I will happily put aside my books and coffee to follow him around in the mud
and watch him enjoy the simple pleasures of childhood.

This is my life and I love it.


This is Travis' favorite book:
 It is from the dollar spot at Target.

 A basket full of books and this is the one that he brings me 20 times a day to read to him.
As I read to him I hold his hand and tap each item as we count them. He loves that.

He drives it around with him and always has it nearby.

He reads it to himself while making the cutest baby gibberish.

When he brings it to me, I stop everything and read it to him.
He hands me the book and then turns around and backs up into my lap.
Ugh, it just melts me.

This is my life and I love it!

Travis can't leave this space heater alone.
He loves to push the button to change the heat settings.
I adore him and all his forms of mischief;)

Again with the potential slacking!
I will update this if I find a photo from today on my camera;)

Brooklyns' teacher had the kids draw names and write a sweet note to that person.
They were supposed to leave the name blank and had to guess who wrote it.

Here is the note that Brooklyn came home with:

 "Dear Brooklyn,
I like how you never give up on one thing and you alwase play fer in games.
You alwase take turns and your never mean.
You never say anything rude and everything in your world is nice.
Your alwase funny and a really good sport.
Your alwase stopping arguments or just staying out of them.

I just love all the misspelled words:) So sweet!

This is the other side of the note...he did such a great job coloring it for her.

I can't find my other camera, so either there is a photo for today or I am a slacker;)
Time will tell!

Today Travis learned that the rugs are not nailed down and in fact can move anywhere.
I lost track of how often I put them back.
Basically, if he can move it, empty it, fill it, stack it, unstack it, throw it,
or stand on/in it he will.
I love his little daredevil grin.

This is my life and I love it.

This girl is such a goof! She put on this tassel cowgirl top thingy and danced around the house all day.

She keeps life interesting;)

This girl loves to play games!
She can be quite ruthless, but is a good sport when the tides turn;)
SORRY! is our favorite game to play as a family.

I love her freckles!
When she was little she called them "sprinkles".
I wish she still did.

We went outside to catch a few minutes of sunshine and to play in the sandbox.
I just love Travis' face here:)

This is where I spent most of the day:

 Our dryer runs on propane and we are out, so I loaded up(He he he) a bunch of laundry and headed over to my in-law's RV Park. I did 10 loads of laundry. Yep, 10. The washers there are much smaller than mine, so at home it would have been 5 loads, but there is was 10;)

Travis was my laundry buddy and kept me on my toes in between all the swapping of loads.
Isn't he adorable? ;)

This is Brooklyn putting together her Valentines for her school party.
She put a photo and a sucker in a bag and taped it shut.

I got out of a relaxing hot bath to find this on my table:

My friend Sara bought it for me and sent it home with my husband when he picked Brooklyn up from AWANA.

I had mentioned that I was looking for something like this and she remembered and thought of me. My love tank is full. Thanks again friend!
