Through tiny eyes

Life through tiny eyes is beautiful.  Tiny eyes tell you that...

#1 Mommy needs a spa when she gets done jogging, so you set one up.

  #2 Life through tiny eyes tells you that even if you are a little boy, you're not too cool to paint Mommy's fingernails on this hand.

 #3 And that if you are a little girl, you don't care if it's messy, you care more about showing love by painting fingernails on this hand.

 #5 Life through tiny eyes tells you that if there are chores to be done, you find creative ways to pitch in.

 #6  Life through tiny eyes tells you that after you read "The Boxcar Children" life will never be the same and that forts are a necessary part of life.

 Lord, give me life through these tiny eyes who bring love and life and healing to this world.

Samish Island

This weekend we escaped to a cabin on the coast with friends from Bible study.  It was an incredibly relaxing time away.  Check it out!

Our view from the shore.

Sawyer was so excited about gathering sea shells when he woke up that he forgot to get out of his p.j.'s.

The Tulip Festival in town goes on the whole month of April.  Stunning!

Sam got a little side-tracked with the camera.

For your viewing pleasure: turn this tourist's outfit upside down and it's a tulip!
How appropriate!

Flopsied Mopsied Moment

Oh this moment of love.  Two tiny friends climb into my bed, birds chirping outside my window.  Puppy pile of flopsied mopsied love, with This One's kindergarten toes pointing that way, and That One's first grade arm heavy on my side.  This One's freckled nose breathing heavy and That One's eyes fluttering in dream world inches from my face.  Oh this moment of flopsied mopsied mommyness in my flannel sheets.  This One and That One...may morning come slowly today.
