It’s been one of those days……
A was super excited to share that a kid in her class was sent home with chicken pox
G may have come home with a note about using forks to sword fight in the cafeteria
An adult may have sucked her thumb in a professional meeting I attended
sometimes ya just have to laugh……

I am Eight you know

IMG_2538

the snow day was a perfect excuse to get started on Ava’s room update

(I love that she has a chandy and a planet mobile)

IMG_2541

I wish I had taken a before shot- it was builder grade tan walls

and she had the quilt with yellow and pink flowers I bought her when she was 18 months

IMG_2540

Ava has been letting me know that she is eight and over anything “babyish”

my days of monogrammed hairbows are numbered…..sigh

IMG_2539

my love is a bit of a pack rat- two bags to donate and a load of “baby” books for McKays

I love that she is articulate and creative….. and a bit hard-headed

It’s amazing watching her grow into her own as a young lady

I adore this girl!

a few weeks back, I painted our bedroom

I’m in love with the dusty aqua shade

the funky yellow lamps are a yard sale find I snatched from my mom

my friend Becky monogrammed these pillows

(formerly known as place mats from World Market)

we bought in Savannah on our honeymoon

not precious

IMG_2513

today we were home from school due to ice

I was beyond grateful….

IMG_2510

we made valentines, round two

(kids were into it for all of 3 minutes)

IMG_2529

then we made pizza

IMG_2528

in my head, it was creative and cozy

making and breaking bread together as a family

IMG_2531

in reality, there was sticky dough, flour everywhere, and tears

because the dough would not be a star-shaped no matter how hard we tried….

ah, well- naps for everyone!

1000 gifts

I’m re-reading Ann Voskamp’s book 1000 gifts

I can’t recommend it enough,

I’m re-reading it because I’m just not there yet

in an effort to be mindful of all God’s graces,

I’m going to be counting gifts this year
