Things that made me happy this week

It has been a week filled with a lot of joy, just taking a moment to share the good stuff! :)

Watching Meadow pretend to lasso her pretty ponies with a long strip of extra fabric complete with sound effects.

Watching Meadow fly Snow White around in Buzz Lightyear's space ship.

Seeing Parker's amazement that he can see underwater with his goggle mask now that he likes to go underwater. He was just so excited about it and couldn't get enough of it. "It is soo beautiful under the water."

Parker gaining confidence swimming and watching him feel proud of himself.

Meadow using the snorkel to make whale noises.

Meadow pretending to be a spotted catfish.

Parker doing his math packet homework over track-out without much complaining. First Grade homework so far is way less than the amount we had in Kindergarten!

Meadow looking out her bedroom window as the sun was setting. Me: What are you looking at Med? Meadow: I'm looking at the beautiful world Jesus created.

Making a new allergy friendly recipe that both of my kids would eat. One of them even said "Yum." Parker disagreed but he still ate it so I think he secretly thought it was a little bit yum.

It was sad to get released from YW but I am happy to get to work with the Achievement day girls! :)

A hard working, sweet husband.

A ward full of amazing women.

The support of Family and Friends.

The names our children came up with for the baby. "Squirty." "Jack-Jack." "Baby Bowser."

Meadow saying "I can't wait until Thanksgiving when the baby comes. It's just so exiting!"

Vanilla with blackberry concrete from Goodberrys.

Finished Painting Meadow's room pink and one wall with a flower/vine design. It about killed me, but now that it is done, I like to go in there and sit and look at it -- Pictures to come!

There was probably more but my heart is full of gratitude at the moment and life is good. :)
