Word of the Year: Content Vol 14

Content

adjective  simple definition:  pleased and satisfied, not needing more

Times like Saturday night, when I took 3 of the 4 kids to the park for just a few minutes.

Look at those happy faces!  I almost didn't even take my phone out to take these pictures.

What I Wore

To keep myself accountable to getting dressed as a stay/work at home mom, I join a blog called The Pleated Poppy.  I enjoy watching for what she wears each day  Since Novembers 'No Pants November' with Christina at Our Wood Home, I've pretty much continued to wear skirts/dresses most days. I quickly came to the realization this was going to be a LOT harder then I thought!

Curently 5/23

The last few months I have been doing a "Currently" post.  It is fun for me to think about my week. To open up, and show bits and pieces of my daily thoughts, and life.  I'm linking up with Becky from Choose Happy.


Laughing at....This boy!  He sure knows how to make me smile.  Here is how her entertained himself AND us during his brother's baseball game.


Enjoying...After my allergy shot on Friday I stopped and picked up a few flowers for the deck.  It was so nice to get to sit on the deck for a bit that evening and enjoy the beauty!

Sunday Fun Day....The day was BEAUTIFUL, couldn't of asked for a better day.  Finishing off with our first bonfire this year with some extended family.


Thankful....My kids have been blessed with such great cousins!  Here is one of the many who is letting them pile pillows on him....

I ordered a couple more maxi dresses since they seems to be all I wear.  Which is making me strongly considering doing a minimalist wardrobe for the summer.  I am really enjoying pulling old items out and adding them in for variety.  Once again everything this week, nothing is new.

Celebrating....Yesterday we had a bridal shower for this lovely young lady!  Can't believe she is old enough to be getting married.  More on the log cake later this week.

Cuddles....Last few days baby girl hasn't felt very good.  So lots of cuddles both day and night!  Makes for LONG days but hate to see her not feeling good.



Loving...Watching these 3 get along so well.  They don't always get along but they sure do love each other.  I'm really enjoying watching them grow up, lately it seems like it is way too fast!!!!

Sunday was Mother's Day, the kids brought home simple, silly gifts they made at school. Plus they picked a bunch of dandelions for the special supper with the grandma's.


Hannah had a lap book that she made.  All she wanted for the day was to make pancakes with her....I think I made her very happy when we did!

Eating....Yum Ice cream!!!!! I got a night out with couple of my sisters, mom, niece and Hannah for some ice cream one night.  Fun to get out with just Hannah for a couple hours to meet up with the 'big girls'!



Amazed....What a young lady Hannah is becoming!  She turned 8 last week.



Laughing at....My dad with Kezia yesterday.  We had my parents and my sisters family over at our house for my mom's birthday.  She had a blast sitting out on the deck with Pa.



 Goofies....The kids asked me to bring out the deck table.  So I brought that out on Sunday for them to have lunch on the date, enjoying the nicer weather that we've been having.
