So far this month we have celebrated...
1. Edward's 2nd Birthday =)
E.J. loves balloons!
2. Fall. What fun is the Fall season without jumping in a pile of leaves?
3. Hay Rides. Because they're awesome! =)
4. Pumpkin Spice Marshmallows. Need I say more?
5. Thomas the Train. My boys love him. =)
I am so excited for the Holidays. We have our pumpkins, mums, and hay bails out on our porch. I am baking brownies tomorrow.Campfires have begun. Febreeze has come out with their Fall line of room fragrances. Dancing around the kitchen and singing Christmas music with my youngest - just because we can. Spilling milk all over my thermal tote, kitchen counter tops, kitchen floor, and then laughing about it because - honestly - who cries over spilled milk? Watching "Abduction" with my Mom because even she, at 65 years old, loves "Twilight" and its cast members. Taking my youngest out for a lunch date to the Olive Garden because I have finally gotten over the whole "I'm not taking my child to a restaurant like that because other people are trying to enjoy their meal, and he'll just get fussy." Guess what? I took him. And you know what? He did just fine. We laughed, we colored, we enjoyed our salad as E.J. picked out only his favorites - black olives, tomatoes, croutons, and red cabbage. He then proceeded to flirt with every waitress in the restaurant. Mommy was pretty calm too - so glad I chose to do go out despite my former fears of doing so.
I'm learning to grow into my age. If that makes any sense. I have learned I don't have to try to be like everyone else. I choose what I wear because I like it. Because it looks good on me. I choose what I want to eat because I can do that. No one can take that away from me. I choose to raise my children the way I know God would want them to be raised, and the best that I can. Not how someone else thinks I should. I'm learning to live. To love. To grow.
2012 has been a fabulous year. Compared to 2011 it is Heaven.
Definitely ecstatic about 2013.
God - You have been SO good to me. Thank You for Your blessings.
You continue to bless - even though I don't deserve it.
