Slippers, Leg Warmers & Cards

Hello lovely people! I know it's been so so long since I've updated what's been going on. And to be honest, it's been a whole lot of not much :-) But I'm kind of okay with that. We have been getting lots and lots of snow the past couple weeks. (I say lots and lots, but really it's only been a few times getting a few inches, which is a lot for Indiana) However, it's been enough that Morgan has only had preschool 2 times in the last two weeks. She is starting to miss being at school! She did however manage to have a little girl time with a school friend yesterday who gave her these "GEMS". I can't believe that leg warmers are actually back....and Morgan loves them.

I must admit...she does wear them well ;-)

We've also been playing a new game from Christmas. I love that Jaron and Morgan can both play this game. It's the kids version of Phase10. Morgan and Jaron have been playing so so well together lately. I absolutely love hearing them in the next room being creative. They have come up with some great plays for me. So fun. If I could figure out how to get videos on here, you would laugh hysterically at some of the things those two come up with. I love being their mommy. They never cease to amaze me.

Don't you adore those tiny, chubby hands?! He had the nickname "Rolls" when he was a baby because he had so many they are disappearing, and my baby is growing into quite the little boy.

And yes, I do believe that my little man most definitely must be cold blooded. The moment we walk in the door, he strips off his socks and shirt...while Morgan and I search for our slippers. I love this little boy so much. He makes me smile so many times every day. His new thing that just melts my heart is that whenever we are apart (even if it is just for an hour...or even a nap) he will find me and say, "Mommy, I missed you!" Then I get the biggest hug. He is definitely all boy, but I love that he has a soft snuggly side too!

I'll leave you with this...a thought for all of us moms who feel like all we do just doesn't always seem to make a huge difference:

"I don't do big things, I do small things with BIG LOVE."
