a lot of happiness

this little girl right here.
yeah, her.

love her to death. i use to think i would be super sad
about her growing up. and while i do miss those newborn and 
little baby days i love these days more.
i fall deeper in love with her each day.
her smile. her sweet personality showing.
sooo much better than newborn days.
yeah, i said it.

her two big sisters.
i love them to death too.
even when they are fighting and screaming
and making messes. one day my house will be mess free.
now that will be a super sad day.

snow days.

we finally got our first snow this winter in virginia.
some may not even call it snow.
but my girls were happy about it and kayla's school
closed which means she has a 4 day weekend.

bundled up little babies. ones that are so bundled
they can't even walk...or crawl. they just sit there, and sometimes tip over.

this little face.

it was kyleigh's first time playing in the snow.
last year she didn't want anything to do with it. she just stayed
on the porch...playing with snow her sister brought her. but not this year.

her first tiny little snow ball.
"look mama, a tiny one."

and this lion.

she's not as scary as she looks. ;)
she's a sweet, cuddly lion.

even though he'd probably kill me for this photo...
he's not photogenic (his words) and he never smiles in photos.
 i actually can't believe i caught a smile on camera. but this man brings
me lots of happiness...and our girls, especially kyleigh.

this room that is finally coming together a year after painting it.

and this room that is slowly coming together. oh and my thrifting finds. oh yes.
they bring me great happiness too.

seeing this happening in the house.
cutest two (almost 3!!) year old, evah.

spending saturday nights at my dads with his friends and their kids.
kids running around. screaming. having fun. and then there is this.

a father/daughter dance at kayla's school. masquerade ball style.
i can't wait to see the two of them dressed up.

i sure hope time can slow down, even if it's just a little bit.
kyleigh is starting preschool in september. how???!!!
each week flys by faster than the one before.
and i'm just trying to capture these little snippets of our happy life to remember.

here's to you and a weekend full of happiness. friends.

happy again.

She's finally feeling better. She's back to her normal happy self. And this mama couldn't be happier.

That smile and the one little dimple on her cheek. I've missed them both.

She reminds me so much of her big sister Kayla. Her sweetness. The way she loves everyone around her. Especially Kayla. Each of my girls have a special bond with each other but there's something about Kinsley and Kayla's. It's sweet. It's heart warming. You can see and feel the love they have for each other.

 She sees Kayla.

Oh, hi big sister of mine.

It brings me such joy. I don't know what I did, but I must've done something to be blessed with these three little girls.

when i think about it, really think about it. it's the small things that make me happy. not the big house, or the minivan of my dreams...although those two things would be nice. i love our two-story, 3 bedroom house, in our neighborhood that sometimes has cars that drive a little too fast down the road. our backyard full of leaves that cover dirt and not grass. which we are totally trying to change. who would've thought when we moved it that growing grass would be so hard? but enough about the stuff that doesn't matter at the end of the day. these are the things that make me smile from ear to ear, and give me that warm feeling inside. the things i hope i never, ever forget.

the smell of kyleigh after a bath.
the smell of her clothes out of the dryer.
i never, ever want to forget those smells.

kyleigh's laughter.
kayla's laugh.
the way they make me laugh.

when kayla says, "i love you mama" out of the blue.
when i tuck her in at night, and tell her, "i'll see you in the morning, i love you," her response back to me, "see you in the morning, love you too mama."
kayla crawling up on the couch to cuddle with me.
kayla trying so hard to make me proud of her. to color a beautiful picture for me, trying so hard to color in the lines. and succeeding.

her telling me "your beautiful mommy" every morning while she watches me get ready.
watching kayla and kyleigh play together, laugh together, together.
the way they look at each other. the bond they have. oh it's magical.

both my girls eating WELL. i don't know why but it makes me extremely happy. i feel like i'm the best mama ever.
kayla wanting to eat fruit instead of chips.
taking pictures.
my husband's cooking.
feeling sand between my toes. sidewalk chalk. bubbles.
warm, sunny days.
listening to the ocean, actually everything about summer. flip flops and tank tops. changing bathing suits twice, and outfits 3 times.

kyleigh's feet.
kayla's feet.
kyleigh's little pruney toes in bubbles

talking on the phone with my mom.
random texts from my husband.
sleeping babies.

my girls.

and last but certainly not least, my husband with our girls.

And I have to give credit to Kelle Hampton for the picture idea (having a solid color next to a picture.) I haven't seen anyone else do it, although I'm sure other people do it. But I've seen it on her blog, and finally decided to try it out.
