Looking at this picture makes me wish I could go back to such carefree days...
...when our biggest worries were Barbie and Ken's wedding, GI Joe's missing arm, and why we had to eat vegetables at dinner again.
My New Year's resolution was influenced by this picture, for 2011 I want to enjoy, relish and preserve every moment, hug, kiss and story that my kids will share with me. Time has already flown by so fast;Ethan is a mature boy on his way to being a teen and has a heart of gold. Piper has the confidence of a Queen and the nurturing instinct of a little mommy!
a poem that touched my heart, about a mothers love for her son
No amount of gold could ever compare, to the gift of love that my son shares. I've been blind and I couldn't see that all the love I've wanted is right here in front of me. He gives reason to get through another day. Maybe it's how he loves me in his special little way. And when it gets hard for me to sleep at night.... He wraps his little arms around me and says God will make things right! From sweet gentle touches to his bear hugs and a kiss... He makes this hell on earth seem more like a peaceful bliss. That great big kool-aid smile and the twinkle in his eyes.... Every time I look at him it makes me want to cry. But they're not tears of sorrow; they're tears of pride and joy.... Too know that all the love in heaven is wrapped around my little boy
my little girl can be sweeter (and badder) oftener than anyone else in the world. she can jitter around, and stomp, and make funny noises that frazzle my nerves yet just when I open your mouth she stands there demure with that special look in her eyes. She is Innocence playing in the mud, Beauty standing on its head, and Motherhood dragging a doll by the foot... I adore her!
The kids got their faces painted by a local lady that is awesome, it took her 4 minutes to paint the dragon on Ethan's face and about 3 minutes to paint "Piper's creation" she will be painting Pipers face up for Halloween and blacking out Ethan's. I can't wait!
We took the kids to the sports park, the last BIG event of the year. It was the Supermoto Championship Series part of the big Cycle Fest weekend. Good times and fast cars we sat under the Grandstands "best seats ever" The winner is ...
