The Snow

Thinking to myself and wondering just how many more years i have to be taller than Abs- not many.
Wessy trying not to fall on the slippery snow- his tongue must help!
Joe and Wes looking all good. :)

Love This....

November Snow!

The sledding crew- Cousin heaven!
Jake, Abby, Angelina, Luke and Liam.

Wessy all suited up to go out. Had his first sled down the bunny hill. Once down with Jake and once with his momma!

Happy Happy

A full moon and snow today. Funny how birthdays go.... another day, sweet phone calls
and messages, a dinner with my family. Friends coming over
for hugs.... how it used to be about gifts when you were young
but as you get older you see the true gifts are just the people themselves with their
arms around you tight, their smiles reflecting yours.

Today the sun was sought, cookies were made, long naps had by the littlest.
A few jobs are more complete, the floor is semi-clean, and baths were taken.
I smiled more and I just didn't feel as heavy.
The fire crackling, the fish tank bubbling, Joe reading to Abby, and the moon comes out again...goodnight.

These Days

It feels quiet in the blog world for me. Hard to write when things feel unsettled.
I feel like some days its all i can do to get through... laundry, tired kids, tired parents, feeding people.
Maybe its the light going away here, or the weather getting colder, hormones getting crazier.
In the middle of me I go from unsettled to full anxiety it seems.
I'm trying to work on myself... ways that i can find reprieve from my chattering brain.
I'm trying to eat a little better and sleep a little more.
I'm trying...

Our genie/belly dancing girl on Halloween

Wessy jumping out of the rocking chair

"Abs, will you go pick some beets?"
"Sure mom."

Yeah... Papa is home!

This morning Joe brought Wes into bed as he was leaving for work.
Wessy says, (high pitched) "hiiieeee Mama."
