Spring is on its way.... !!! {PHFR}

*capturing* the context of contentment in the everyday... with the ladies at Like Mother, Like Daughter!

After church on Sunday, we headed out to the backyard, and the morning chill turned into 70 degree weather.

Lest you fear, she was still smiling, despite having kicked off her socks on the way home from church.;)

Loving her baby doll.

And just because... Cutie.

On their way to Church... Anders wore a tie, and was playing with a little bus he found at "Good-wheel" for .99. I just love Goodwill, sigh. (And as Frances was playing, I said, "It's time to give up playing, it's bath time. And she said, "I never give up... except at Lent." {smiling really big}. And I said, "Well, what do you give up for Lent?" and she said, "I..... haven't decided yet." {and ... laughter;)}
And along with my love for GoodWheel...I also love spray disinfectant. :0)  ;)

A bunch of gorgeous tiny (field) pansies, collected by Molly! Spring is certainly on its way, and God's creation is just glorious.


At 4pm, I was not expecting the shadows to be so intense...
but I guess I should have known that! ;)

I asked her, "What do you have to say for yourself, Madeleine?!"
She said, "Lots of beeeeeeerv," (???) and then "Lisa!!!" which apparently means her baby is named Lisa!!!   LOL... A-Okay. :-) ;)
Later, I told her Daddy was studying French, and asked her, "What is Daddy learning about French?"
Her answer: "That it's Spanish."


True confessions: we haven't been outside much recently! ;) But we are making up for lost winter time. ;)

I've been reading a mash-up of Real Simple articles online for years, but finally decided to subscribe. All the cool people read it, yo. ;)

By the way, have you heard of the Lily books series, by Sherry Boas?  I just started it. While it isn't as esoteric as this book, it is certainly Pro-life, and I'm enjoying it. It is about a little girl named Lily who has down-syndrome.

I have a lot of other ~real~ pictures.... you know, the classics: pretzels on the floor, and the art of spilled ketchup, but I'll spare you. ha, ha. ;)

It's amazing how children's personalities surface early on in life, isn't it? I admire the family life that you have -- joy and happiness are so evident! and thank you for the reading suggestion; I am checking on "Until Lily" right now :-)

Marcia- I know, right?! I think you will definitely enjoy Until Lily! I know I am! ;)
