Snow Day

This past week we have been dealing with sickness like never before at our house. Malakai had the flu at the beginning of the week and spent most of his days on the couch. Then towards the end of the week, he got a bad cold and by Saturday, Isaac and I had it too. Thank goodness for my mom who made supper on Saturday night when I was laid out flat on the floor by the woodstove declaring it was freezing in the house with wool socks on and a blanket even though the thermostat read 71. We did manage to get everyone out in the snow for a few sled rides and fresh air. Believing for a week of full healing and recovery ahead!


Pajama Party

This morning we are having a mandatory pajama party. No one is allowed to change out of their pajamas and it's so fun. For Mommy too. Here's to a great winter weekend ahead. Enjoy your warm house. Snuggle with your dear ones and be thankful for the blessings in your life. I am. Here's two of my favorite ones...


Great Grandma

Yesterday we spent the afternoon with Great Grandma Brubaker. The boys love visiting her and I know it means a lot to her too. She is 90 years old and still drives herself everywhere. She is one of my most favorite people in the whole world and I am so thankful to have her as a joyful part of my life and my family's lives. I wish you could've heard the conversation happening between the three of them as they enjoyed an animal cracker snack and looked through a photo album together. She could live to be 125 but I am going to continue to capture life with her each time we are in each other's presence, because I know each day is a gift and photos are much more than paper. They are lifelong memories frozen in time. They may not mean much to the outside viewer, but to me, these photos are like precious gems. This is the kind of jewelry we all should invest in :)
