Two by Two

Well, my two little boys turned two today and what a precious time we had celebrating it.  Just an old fashioned party…family, neighbors & friends, simple homemade food, simple cakes, green grass, a treehouse, paper lanterns, & old quilts…what could be better?!  Life is full and these days are warm and vibrant.  I tried to soak in every little smile, every sweet sip of wine and tight hug, before the day slipped away and we’re off to another full week of school, work, and…you guessed it, laundry (4 loads to fold, hastily hidden in my closet, if you must know).  Ahh, so grateful.  Thank you, Lord, for summer, for good times, and for my sweet little boys.  The happiest of 2nds!

  17. They are sooooo cute! You amaze me, that you have all the energy to party and work and raise such a beautiful family. We are celebrating our youngest great grandson’s 1st birthday this weekend. His birthday is actually 9-5, but Labor Day provides time for his Yia Yia (grandma) and her husband and daughter ( JR’s auntie) to drive up from Colorado. I will try to have pictures next week.

  18. So cute! They certainly stayed clean!
