A few of my favorite things

I usually blog in some sort of timeline that makes sense but since it's been like 6 months since I last did a post I figured I'd just re-cap a few of my "favorite things" that make me smile...

First up...little boys and baseball.

and little girls that want to play baseball.

decorating cakes

and Halloween cookies

Cousins holding hands

new challenges for little people

being proud of my kids

(this was all I could find for Tryg...he's a bit of a trouble maker these days)

Christmas in our own house

Cox family holiday traditions (I'm not sure what role the mexican karate kid or Darth Vader had in our nativity story but they played it well!)

Having family for Christmas, good gossip magazines, and a super cool uncle for Molly

scratched up elbows that need mom's kisses

 pinewood derby design focus

brothers that love each other
and torment each other

big brown eyes

 beautiful blue eyes (thank you Mark)

a husband that cherishes me and loves our children

my little girl (thank you again Mark)
her three big brothers
just enough hair for one tiny bow

jean skirt, white tights, and purple boots

dimples and flowers

Hopefully that captures a piece of our last 6 months and hopefully I wont wait that long til the next one.

Being the Sound of Music fan that I am I will simply close with Maria's famous words, ".......when I'm feeling sad, I simply remember my favorite things and then I don't feel so bad!!"
