Brushing the Teethies

2.27.14  The Brothers brushing.  

Leading up to this picture was Carson, Gabe and myself brushing our teeth.  Finn got the stool, started yelling/grunting and trying to elbow his little self in to be part of the teeth brushing action. 

Although he doesn't use a lot of words, he gets his point across!  :)

I LOVE these guys!

Finn Waving

The other day I spied Finn waving bye.  He has done it once in a while, but now does it on command.  :) 
I got a little video of him tonight! 


Finn waving, looking for toot-toots, signing "please", and blowing a kiss!  :)

These last couple of days I have found myself giddy over a couple of different things.  Once in a while I smell something that reminds me of a smell in the past that is just pure comfort.  I can't quite pinpoint it,  but I just "know it."  Wanting to bake something that is comforting.  Or as silly as it may sound, organizing my cook book has been all too exciting for me lately.  I have come across many recipes that I have wanted to try on Pinterest and pin them with good intentions and never get past that.  In the last week, I have printed many of those recipes and have made a handful of them.  And for some reason, right now, that is just so exciting for me!  :)

Tuesday mornings we have to get up fairly early and get going to our Classical Conversation day that meets and First Baptist, in Ashland.  The boys, all 3 of them, slept past 7:30am!  One of them if not all of them are usually up by 6:45am.  Daily.  I got all ready and was trying to figure out what I should do next.  I decided to eat my breakfast!  Duh!?  Alone.  At the kitchen table with Pandora playing.  It was a moment that was just perfect.  My egg was the same boring egg I eat every day, but sitting there in the quietness eating it alone, just made it perfect.  In the quiet.  Alone.  Did I repeat myself?  I think you can imagine the feeling...

Today, after taking Carson and Gabe to our new dentist, which is our neighbor (no more driving to the dentist!!!), taking Finn to DR. Rollins to check a bug bite on his foot, and heading to the store with all the boys, in the rain, we drove by Trever working on the Blvd. in his rain suit getting poured on, on the way home.  For some reason, this also is exciting.  I love driving through town, with the chance of spying him somewhere!  :)

Yesterday after I did my jump rope workout outside, I pulled some weeds.  There is a nice tree that has a lot of weeds under it with a large pile of yard debris and I was thinking how nice that tree would be in the summer, with a nice moss/grass area under I need to work on that, once we get a break in the much needed rain. 

These are just a few of the things in my life right now, that are blessing me.  What is "speaking" to you right now?
