Favorite Photo Friday {Waiting for the Snow}

She has been patiently waiting for the snow to arrive.

Lucky for her it arrived today...and it's the beautiful stick to everything, snowball packing, snowman kind...

The bad news?

Charlie has eaten 3 pairs of her gloves this winter and she lost her last pair yesterday on the bus....

The Changing Light

The light has begun to change again around here...and I love to follow it and see where it takes me. For this session we started indoors in the kitchen and then headed into the woods.

“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”

Sunday Snapshot

Looking back I have no idea why it took me time to embrace who she is and that she wasn't frilly and pink and baby doll loving. Now I can't imagine her any other way....ever.

Love this girl to the moon and back and to the moon and back and to the moon and back {as she would say}....

Favorite Photo Friday {Conversations With L}

Last night as I was tucking this sweet child in, the conversation went as follows... L- You're the best Mommy in the whole world. You're the only Mommy I'll ever want.

Me- You're the best LiLi in the whole world..

L- There might be another Linhsey out there that you would like better who doesn't lie to their Mommy.

Me- No, you're the only Linhsey for me. Wait, did you lie to me?!

An impish grin came across her face as she finished with- A couple of times!

Golden Falcon Marching Band, Florida Trip

We recently just returned from a trip to Disney with Gene's marching band. The weather was cool and it rained on and off, but I did manage to bring my camera out one of the days we were there. Linhsey is a Gryffindor student now at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry . I think she would have slept in this uniform if I let her. She got so much attention in it everywhere we went that I think she believes she is famous now. The candy shop in Diagon Alley... We bought the jelly beans and she ate the earwax one...and a chocolate frog. The talking paintings in Hogwarts.Minutes before her brother's parade started..She's playing the piano with her fingers there. She does it everywhere now. Truffula trees!She followed along and took videos...

Hopefully the kids will do it all again in 2 years... I know they had a great time!

Sunday Snapshot {Counting the Rings}

She's been sick for over a week and it has made its' way through everyone in the house now. This morning she woke up and drew a "Cycle of Sickness". Her words, not mine. She started off with Kristen, Gene's girlfriend {Sorry Kristen!} and from there it went to Gene, her, and so on. She labeled everyone's symptoms. She put down asthma for Kristen...I saw fever, sore throat and cough thrown in the chart too.

Here's hoping to a fresh start this week!
