Day 4

How can you not just be so grateful for that smile. It is the best part of my day when my children smile at me. And despite the difficulty of adjusting to two kids, especially two boys, I love them and wouldn't trade them for the world.

Day 3

There aren't even enough words to explain how grateful I am for these two. They are precious to me above all else. (Don't worry I haven't forgotten the littlest one, he gets a post of his own.) But these two people are just so special, and their special relationship makes every day so fun. I love how much they love each other and can't wait till E can join in on the fun.

Day 2

Today I am grateful for cloth diapers. I'm grateful for the help they are to our budget. I love how something that women have done for centuries has come back into vogue, and is easier than any of our grandmother's ever had it. They are green, and economical, and save baby from the extra chemicals in disposables. And they are CUTE! Convenient no, but they are more convenient than what my grandmother cloth diapered her babies in. So I am grateful for that :D

Gratitude - Day One

I have a lot of friends that each day are listing things they are grateful for. After a very difficult week I've decided to jump on the bandwagon of gratefulness and improve my attitude. Today I am grateful for Chocolate Zucchini Muffins (recipe found here) Now you may think this is a silly small thing to start with, and in some ways it is. But the reason I am grateful for these is because last night was really hard. E has a cold and was up pretty much all night, so I didn't sleep either. My sweet hubby skipped his class this morning so that I could catch a break. I was already up so I didn't sleep, instead I made chocolate zucchini muffins, and I got a shower. Both things to be grateful for on a very difficult day. Love my Hubby, and I love these muffins :D For a really good reminder of why we should be grateful go here. Happy Thanksgiving Month!

First Snow of the Season!

Yay! Winter is on it's way. I say on it's way because this glorious skiff that we woke up to this morning has already melted. That's Provo for ya. Sorry to those followers who have been anxiously awaiting a post. I know I promised one two months ago. It's surprising how quickly time passes with two little kids. Anyway I got to go see a great photographer speak this last week. His name is Keith Carter, and it was amazing. Needless to say it gave me the inspiration I needed to get out and shoot. And so did the snow! Something about the cold just gets me going. Odd I know. I'm sad I missed out on some awesome fall shots that I saw, those will have to forever live in my memory. However, I will try not to miss too many during this next coming season. Enjoy!
