I have been feeling really out of balance lately. A lot on the plate of life. All good things, of course. But a lot of it! So many ideas have been swirling around in my head and the online surfing was making it worse. So much to look at and take in. But then I came across a site that offered free monogram designs.
OK - how much fun is that?
So I thought about what I wanted to make......the kids' names, my monogram, a family crest. Well, there were some limits to what I could do. So instead I decided to make something for me and Buck.
I haven't been focused on that in a while.
So I made a sweet little something to remind me of a commitment we made some 61/2 years ago. I think I will put it somewhere to remind me of our family's center - the mom and dad, the husband and wife, the Buck and Marcey. I think having this front in center - maybe taped to the mirror - will help me connect, reconnect, connect the dots right back to the center of it all.

What I thought might be a hectic phase, is our new normal. The moments I try to be present for seem to fly by at mock speed. So this weekend I picked up the camera and snapped a few photos for no reason at all. Just because every moment is a special one. So here are a few not-so-special, so-very-special photos of my lovies.

Instant Happy

I'm a little too tired to think of anything clever to write. But I do have a few photos to share, and that's what you really want, right? To see these cutie pies? They are that. Cute. Really cute. It makes my job much easier. These little people can turn fatigue into energy and frustration into giggles in an instant. So in case you need a little energy and a smile, I give you my kids!

Oh Mercy!

God give me strength! My Lily can be sweet as pie, and bad as the devil! I wish I could just sit back and be entertained. But I have to be the momma! Today, I thought I might leave her on a corner somewhere with a note tied around her neck. I know we'll laugh about this someday, but as for tonight - I am drinking a glass or two of wine!

Rocking her to sleep tonight I say.....Lily,mommy feels so frustrated when you don't listen or share with your friends.  Her reply - I know mommy. This is going to be tough!

So, I started laughing now!

Only Child

While Lily has been away at Grandma Camp, we have been soaking in a little one-on-one time with baby Ben. Who wouldn't enjoy a little more cuddle time with this guy! We sure do miss sister, but she is having a blast running the show at  grandma's house. Meanwhile, Ben is loving being an only child. More hugs. Less noise. All the space between mommy and papa in the "big bed". However, we are all looking forward to getting our chaotic home back to normal. We'll be picking up The Goose this weekend! Hang on grandma, backup is on the way!
