Pizza Night



It's been a long time since we took our girls out to eat anywhere. The last time we went to Cracker Barrel and the adventure was just that. This week we decided to break that restaurant strike and surprise our girls with a night out. They've begged for an entire year to go eat at the Mellow Mushroom in town. They say it's magical. Pizza can be that way, I admit.

We had such a blast except for the last 5 minutes or so. Miss Ellie was worn out and ready to cuddle at home which she wanted everyone to know. Other than that, the night was so fun. 

Fresh soft pretzels to snack on and then PIZZZZZA!!! With a side of extreme silliness. 

The girls said this animal was a white chihuahua with rainbow whiskers. I think that's a good description, however it resembles another little animal I'm quite fond of. 

Pretzels that size of Moma's face...that's huge! 




Moma and Daddy's "buffalo chicken" pizza. Oh! My! Goodness!!
That's all I have to say about that!



Oversize flowers for my little ladies. Like a dream.



After such a fun night I'm pretty sure we'll be going out for fun nights again.

Around the Corner


Some birthdays are unforgettable. They leave such an impression on the heart that it's just impossible to forget them. Then there are those that just pass by. I used to look forward to the next birthday. One year older is always something to look forward. Then I started to resent them. With a year older meant closer to grey, closer to creaky joints, closer to my girls not needing their Moma. But, now my heart looks at things through a different aspect. 

Thirty-one is just around the corner . One day closer to 32, 33, and so on. I am so incredibly grateful for the opportunity to see my today and possibly tomorrow. There are so many people that miss out on the chance to see just that, like my cousin Heather. The chance to grow old and live their life is no longer. 

So I'm grateful. 
I welcome 31 with open arms. 
It means I get to spend one more day and hopefully a lifetime more with those that I love making memories full of love and life. 

Do not regret getting older. 
It is a privilege denied by many.

Making it Better

The other day was extremely long-winded. It just kept going and going.
Somehow, all five of us ended out on the trampoline laying down.
It's amazing how peaceful cloud watching can be.

Unicorns  Dogs Turtles Dragons...
 Lot's of dragons. 

And just like that...everything was better.








Thank God for love and family.

But as for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more Psalm 71:14
