My favorite things...

This post works best if read to the tune of "My favorite things" from The Sound of Music! :)

Cheesy, I know...but I need to keep up with my wonder blogger friend Missy. :) I can't take pictures like her, or sew like her, or bake like her...(I'm starting to develop a complex now...I'm not worthy!!) So I need to make up songs to the tunes of preexisting songs to make myself feel better! Tee ya Miss!

Girls in silly blue jeans with sock monkey patches...

Watching my children carve pumpkins from patches...

Birthday cakes done up with Dora and Friends....

When you live with five children the fun never ends!

Okay...stop singing now!

No more rhymes...or cheesy songs.

So....the girls are two now. Officially. I am now in the midst of terrible twos times two. We tried to get pictures done today. I am sure that there are pictures of my girls posted at photo studios stating "Beware...impossible to photograph children...send them to Walmart"

Needless to say, we got a few pics of Ruby, but Clara REFUSED to cooperate. She flat out told the photographer "stop it" and then promptly threw a stuffed animal at him and put her binky back in her mouth, and re affixed herself to my leg.

I haven't ordered any yet. My boys got a bout of bodily gas issues while attempting to wrestle one another in the studio, so I politely asked (if one can do so while attempting to not strangle children in public) to come back on Friday to order without them.

I am thankful for so many things, first and foremost being my friends, my family, and my faith. For all of you, thank you for being there for me in good times and bad. My life is so much better because of all of you!

May the spirit of the coming season fill you with the the ability to find joy in the ordinary, and appreciate every day miracles.

God is good. All the time.
