Have I ever told you how I love having a daughter? Or 2? Or 4?

When London came along, she completed my life in so many ways. What can be better than having a sweet little girl to love, and hug , and kiss, and dress, and braid her hair, and play with? 

London's favorite toy right now is her easel. She plays school in her room nearly every day, practicing for the day she gets to be a real teacher, her main goal in life at this point.  I will find her with rows of students (dolls and stuffed animals) hard at work, while she patiently teaches them how to spell or about the weather. And, while allowing the expo marker to be left in her room is a substantial risk with Jack on the loose in our home, I think it's proved to be worth the gamble so far.

Sunday Snapshots

My little Jack-Jack. Just so darn cute all the time! I love kissing those sweet cheeks.   

Shane is practically our household celebrity, the younger kids love and look up to him so much. We all really enjoy his easy going manner and good company when he comes over.

Brady, our poster child of rebellion, is actually a fantastic worker, and I love it when he comes to help. He tries so hard to hide it, but he's a total sweetheart underneath the rough exterior.

Dane works so hard on our yard- he is so amazing!

These two will play together for hours on end. Darling sisters.

Enjoying the family on a cool spring evening. Brady and Shane came and helped Dane with the yard work, and all the kids sat on the back of the truck and ate orange creamsicles while their feet swung in the air.

A perfect family memory.
