I had to wait until Mother’s Day to share these photos and it was so hard waiting. But I knew I couldn’t spoil the surprise! I am little biased, but I think these kiddos are pretty darn cute (they are my great nieces and great nephew). Miss A and Miss M are sisters and little F is their cousin. <3
I have been trying for weeks to write this blog post and I really wanted to write it before we all forget about this snow...if that's even possible. This winter has not been easy for many people, but I actually haven't minded it. (The fact that I work from home and don't have to commute in it definitely helps!) There's something special about a big snowstorm (or two, or three, or four). I enjoy the walks at night when it's so quiet and peaceful, I get to see my neighbors while we are all shoveling for the umpteenth time, and once in awhile I even get to have some fun playing in the snow.
My kids are grown so I don't have little ones to play in the snow with anymore which makes me a little sad. However, I am lucky that my second cousin-in-law (or something like that!) and her family are my neighbors. Their adorable 5 month old had an awesome introduction to the snow this winter and she didn't seem to mind it one bit. These were taken in my back yard after one of the whopper storms. I don't think it will take you long to realize that someone has her daddy wrapped around her little finger already! Good luck to you in a few years! : )
My husband comes from a large, loud, crazy family. He is the oldest of six kids and his parents have 11 grandchildren. Needless to say, when everyone is together, it's nothing but chaos. I have just two siblings and only five first cousins who I see very infrequently. So as you can imagine, the big family thing can be a bit overwhelming at times.
There are some days, however, that I look at all of the "grandkids" (my nieces and nephews, ages 1-20) on my husband's side and can't help but smile. I know they all drive each other crazy at times, but when you see them together like this, it all makes sense. These were taken on Father's Day (also my son's 20th birthday). It's nice to see how much fun they have together. The first photo is of my husband who is obviously adored by his nieces!
