The Simple Life

So what do I want for the new year? I want just what I have. My perfect family living a perfect life. I feel so very blessed right now with everything God has given us. I couldn't ask for anything more.

Little Momma

Madelynn has turned into such the little momma. In the morning she lays out Annie and Joy's clothes (complete with socks) in little piles for them to wear.  She loves to help Annie get things she wants, and tells me when Annie is getting into trouble. She enjoys wiping Joy's mouth when she spits up, and today she started wiping Annie's nose with kleenex when it starts to run.  I really have been blessed to have such a great helper!

Annie is turning into a great helper too!  Annie helps me 'fold' laundry and puts it on the counter to be put up. She helps unload the dishwasher and actually puts the pans and wooden spoons up in the correct spot! She has alot of fun helping me dust furniture, and loves to tuck a blanket around Joy when she gets fussy.

I can't wait until they are old enough to cook. We are going to have some fantastic meals in the future! ;)

Our New Neighbors

I'm so excited about our new neighbors! They are really friendly, and just love the girls. Mr. B has already invited Madelynn to come over and meet their little dog Bonny and some new puppies after they move in. Madelynn of course will not let me forget! ;)  Mrs. B used to be a hospice chaplain before she retired. They have moved here from Dallas to be closer to their grandchildren who are 2 years old and 6 weeks old. I'm sure the kids will have a great time together! Now, if we can just get a great family in the other house next door......anyone looking for a house?

Oops, wrong sister.....

I've been having fun singing Christmas carols around the house, and Madelynn loves trying to learn the words to them.  The other day she requests I sing that song about her sister. I ask, "what song is that?"

"You know, it goes Annabelle to the world..."

"Wha?......Oh! Do you mean Joy to the world?"

"Oh yes, Joy to the world"

My view this morning

I did not take this picture, and these are not my kids; but it is fairly accurate of my view at 6:00 this morning.
