Sisters.  Don't you just love it when they get along?
This falls under the category of magical mom moments!

Hanging the Birdfeeder

It always make me feel good when I can be a mom that says, "Yes!"

When Ella came in with an arm full of pinecones, wanting to make birdfeeders,  I turned off my normal weekday feeling of rush and said, "Sure, honey.  You can make birdfeeders."  I was surprised how independent my baby was, getting a chair to reach the peanut butter, making sure she returned it to its place on the shelf when she was finished.

She tied them carefully in various places around the yard.  Her mind is always working and I never cease to be impressed by her thoughtfulness.  Imagination is her gift.

The Magic Straw

My brother and his family are visiting and my Nephew, Elias, is one of my favorite people to photograph.  I introduced him to "Magic" Straws.  They turn plain old milk into chocolate!

Four hours of sleep.
Three week old Opi-Gel nails still look good.

Birthday Lunch

She's been planning this birthday lunch for approximately 364 days.  At "Which 'Wich" you write your name on a bag and mark off your sandwich and toppings.  When it's finished, they call your name, and of course hers was "Birthday Girl".  Birthday Mom, The Princess Dad, Birthday Girl's Big Bro, Birthday Girl's Big Sis and Little Sis all ordered sandwiches, too.  It was a plan in the making.

I'm participating in the Glimpses 52 Project at Chic Critique.  Check it out!
