lately we've been ::

celebrating star wars day.
aka May the 4th Be With You.
aka this is what my husband was created for.
aka i was told while taking this pic that storm troopers don't use light sabers.
whateverrrrrrrrrr, be lucky you have a wife that cares, alright?

mini-vacationing for 3 days.
at disneyland.
last time for a few months so we soaked up every minute.

getting brave on the toon town roller coaster and keeping our hands up the whole time.

meeting mickey and being a littttttttle on guard.

wishing upon stars.
hoping little almost-three-year-old dreams come true.

getting really awesome fortunes.
with really horrible font choices.
but still.

reading really great verses.

getting dolled up for a normal saturday.

drinking tea & eating crumpets with daddy.
[i really did walk in on them like this. i had to sneak the pic that's why it's all grainy! i had to be sly, people.]

celebrating my 3rd mother's day.
saying "CHEESE" at the top of my lungs.
that's why i look so....mousy.
being so, SO thankful that these kids are mine.
that God chose me to be their mama.
with all my flaws and mistakes and uncertainty.
these two challenge me and change me and make me better every day.
and every single hard day right now is worth it.

asking my boy to smile for the camera only to feel his little arms wrap around my neck.
and his nose touch mine. [we call that "nose to nose"...get it? don't think too hard. it really is just your nose-to-nose.]
i get kinda teary when i see this pic.

hearing scottyboy say, "kisses, cammie?"
and seeing her little face turn up to kiss her daddy.

taking walks around our neighborhood at dusk with our new wagon.
words cannot express how much i love this picture.
it is canvas worthy.

i have a lot to catch up on.
but tonight i'm gonna go watch the castle finale with scotty & have a glass of peach sparkling wine.
sounds delightful, right? yes.

p.s. my friend jami is doing a special giveaway to raise money for a trip to uganda! i am giving away a print of your choice.....head over there and check it out!
