When Henry was born, I called these two my bookends. They both had red hair, and they were my first and last child. Or at least I thought that until a little blondy named Nora showed up:)

They both have very similiar personalities. They are very sweet and tender, but HILARIOUS! They surprise me constantly with the funny, quirky things they say and do.

Finding them like this when Jeff and I got home from a date the other night just confirmed to me that I am the luckiest mom in the world.

I really feel that as long as my children love and adore eachother and us, that life is more full of joy than I could have ever imagined.

I'm grateful that my children bring me joy. And as I'm cleaning and scrubbing and wiping chocolate off of faces I repeat that thought over and over in my head.

What brings you joy?


  1. if only they all loved each other. my oldest doesn't always seem like he cares too much about his siblings, but we're trying to drill the importance of family....

    for some people, it just comes as naturally as breathing i think!! i mean, like me! ;-)

  2. Diet Dr. Pepper brings me joy.

    And chocolate.

    Oh wait, is this about families? My kids and handsome hubby of course! A full house of friends and family, smelling of something yummy I'm making in the kitchen, open windows to hear the sounds of my kids playing outside, and good music bring me as much joy as I can stand. I love it all.

  3. I love my siblings but sometimes I wish they would leave me alone.
