Cheers to a New Year and Much to be Thankful for

So many things to be thankful for this past week. I'm so thankful that we're starting 2012 off healthier than we ended 2011!

1115. Hadley's fevers to indicate that something is wrong.

1116. Mama's intuition.

1117. New antibiotics.

1118. Ear infection diagnosis.

1119. Many fevered snuggles in the middle of the night.

1120. Napping with Hadley.

1121. Energy through those five nights of interrupted sleep.

1122. Fever-less day finally arriving!

1123. The girls giggling at their papa juggling clementines in the kitchen.

1124. Hanging the girls' art in our home.

1125. Brynne's love for the color orange, just like her papa.

1127. Multitasking.

1128. My sister surprising us with a visit.

1129. Hadley sitting on her Masa's knee, petting Noodle (Yes, Noodle, the poodle).

1130. Someone else to read Clifford.  

1131. The girls' fascination with the moon, because of the beautiful, lyrical book, I Took the Moon for a Walk that I don't mind reading over and over again.

1132. Ringing in the New Year sound asleep.

holy experience

Heeheehee- that multitaskign pic is too cute.

If they like the moon, try the books by Frank Asch- Mooncake, Moonbear, Happy Birthday Moon, etc. Just a teacher suggestion. :) My two went through a moon stage when it started getting dark earlier, but it was still warm enough to take our after dinner walks. Now Anna still loves to point them out in every book where a moon is pictured.

Love the artwork, really LOVE the multitasking! It is a thing born in us women I think. My poor, talented, extremely smart husband just can't do it:)
