Love Overload

I often have people ask me about how can I possibly continue to want children and always invite extra children to my house and be ok with all of it.  THIS.  This is why.  Because it's all so simple and beautiful and they love the little things and it is such a joy to learn from them all. 

When you look at it that way it's pretty easy to see why I love it so much, right?   That and the fact that my husband is kind, extremely involved and helpful, and irresistibly handsome.

Two teenagers in the house

Last month we celebrated Savanna's 14th birthday.  Madeline planned a big surprise party for her and we were able to pull it off with a full surprise!  It was so great and I will not forget how she covered her face and ran back out the front door!  She was really truly shocked.

What I Love so much about her is that she can handle any situation, any challenge and make it all work out beautifully.  She is beyond creative and she loves the outdoors so much I can rarely find her inside.  She is an animal whisperer and can catch anything.  She is beautiful and thoughtful and always does kind things for others.  She loves to sleep in and have breakfast around lunch time.  I love her so much!
