Little Things

You know, I really get enjoyment out of the little things in life.... the simple things really make me happy. Example: I love it when everyone eats all their dinner, especially when it's something new or something they didn't eat the last time I made it. Today, salisbury steak with macaroni and gravy, and biscuits... girls ate their plates clean. Love it! Matthew, he's eating salad!!!! Salad-Aka "rabbit food" because I found a salad dressing he LOVES- Kraft Light Raspberry Vinaigrette. These things make me so happy... when I tucker the girls out from a fun filled day and they're happily going to bed... when my air conditioning bill is less than my car payment (love that one!)... when all the ironing's done... when the mailman brings my mail to the door because we have a package... and of course, my most obvious little enjoyment... matching clothes for my 2, nearly 3 daughters... SO the girls got a couple new bathing suits. Here they are modeling before we go out to renew our tan... (another one of my little things, I love those tan little babies of mine, and their cute white butts when they get in the tub... am I allowed to put a pic of that on a blog, too cute!)

Another thing that brings me joy, shopping around... we're getting estimates on the pool fence, first estimate $1200. Slightly outrageous for 12 feet of fence, when 5 of that 12 feet is a gate... shopping around playing companies against eachother, Matthew found the exact same fence for $480. Good job Dear! See, it's the little things :)

Thank you for your sweet comments on my blog. I can't believe there are strangers praying for us. I loved what you said about being there in the next life to see our joyous reunion. Your family is darling.
