Sometimes I don't feel like collecting all my thoughts into one pretty composed piece. Sometimes I just look at the pictures of life happening and want to tell the story behind each and every one. And then a week goes by, and 284 other pictures and stories have happened and it gets passed and forgotten and pushed aside for something more shiny, fresh and new.

So here's some life. It's not fresh and new or very shiny. But it's life.

The littles and I made and decorated Halloween cookies last week. And it was one of those days where I felt like I had it all together. Dinner was in the crock pot. The house was clean. And I was having fun making cookies with my kids. I felt like a good mom that day.

There is so much I love about this picture. It was a random, last minute, let's go let our kids jump in the bouncy pumpkin and corn Monday morning excursion. And it was fun. Can you feel that when you look at it like I do?

We are blessed to have friends and not just the ones shown in that picture.

This babe of mine loves babies. Sometimes pretends she is a baby. And is pretty stinking hilarious.

She's still a bit under the weather but we are going about life as usual right now. Waiting for Wednesday to come so we can go and see the doctor again.
The day my friend S had her baby, her other kids came over and then my friend H and her kids came over and we had a relaxing morning while our littles played and we drank coffee and chatted. I love this picture of H and her babe with E and friend, Charlie. I love that Charlie is smiling so hard his eyes are shut. I love that E is too focused on holding hands with baby Johnny and Charlie to even see me take the picture. And I love that Johnny's looking at me like, why are you taking our picture?

And these two. Will you take a good look at these two? They are five weeks apart in age and they are the best of friends and I love that.

Finally, tonight, M wanted me to take her picture so we could email it to her mom. Today was "Pajama and Wacky Hair" day at school. And she stood in front of the wall and these two monkeys jumped right in with her. First of all, I love that they are so cheesy. Second of all, I love that M didn't even care.

What's going on in your life? Seriously, what sorts of pictures or stories do you have that you're waiting to tell? I'd really like to know.

Life is sometimes so full and so empty. School is keeping me crazy busy. Desperately missing my best friend as she has had her 3rd baby and I'm missing it. I hope she knows I love her. I send a message each morning and afternoon hoping they'll make her smile just knowing I'm thinking about her. It's time like these that make living 1700 miles away sooo hard. So I need two pictures of life right now. One in teacher clothes and one in my sweatpants:)

Oh my goodness, that photo of all the kids on the hay bale is simply priceless. I love it.

And I agree, sometimes it's best to just reflect and not really compose at all.

I haven't taken any photos lately, but Rachel has, of us around our birthday celebrations that I'm waiting to receive so I can tell/show you ALL about it...
