    Starting the day with this cutie is one of my favorite things in the world. I am by no means a morning person, but this little light of my life is trying (pretty successfully) to change that.

    As she sat across from me at the table this morning, she seems to be in deep thought while I clicked away at my computer.

    I happened to glance up and see her face and observe her mechanical motions of eating oyster crackers (after of full breakfast of french toast and fresh laid eggs of course) .


    I grabbed my camera which seems to snap her out of her dazed state.

    She gives me a look.

    I look right back.

    We play a who-will-smile-first and I lose as always.

    Then her big brother Colton sits down. And she tries to stare him down.

    But something different happens.

    She melts first.

    And gives him a hug.

    And I can’t hold back tears.

    And she can’t hold back her love for her big brother. Nor he for her.

    So thankful for little blessings!

    Oh my gah!! *holding back tears*

    A wonderful post to come home to after taking my daughter to figure skating. While there I talked with a mom who I have talked to before. This time she shared something and I couldn’t help but want to know more. She shared and there were tears (on my part). I left that moment loving how we can learn so much from another, not let past life circumstances dictate our lives, and get so much more out of life here on earth if we listened, talked, shared, and loved more. Have a loving and beautiful weekend. 🙂 Gotta love your daughter’s bed head!

    What a sweet post. My youngest is named Colton too. He’s the kindest most hugable kid in the world too.

    My youngest still sports that hairdo when he rolls out of bed! And he’s in college :/ You are truly blessed!!!

    You are truly blessed with your beautiful family. Such memories to treasure. Happy Sunday xoxo

    So precious!!!

    This is exactly why I love blogs. This a wonderful way to start any day. You are blessed!
    No words can express that love. Precious,


    What a sweet, tender blessing.

    What a beautiful moment!

    Love them!

    They are so precious. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful post.

    It is a beautiful thing when siblings love each other like that. God bless your family.

    My grandson had hair just like Olivia…and he was certain all the world loved him as even store clerks laughed and joked with him! My philosophy is they all walk and talk and he is an amazing gorgeous 12 year old ( with great hair) Colton is also a beautiful child. You are indeed blessed.

    So, so precious!!

    I cannot wait to witness moments like this in my own home!! You are blessed, for sure!

    Your kids Amanda! So gosh darn ADORABLE and so, SO sweet!

    Don't Pass on Dessert!
