Thankful for Smiles and Laughter

Smiles and laughter ...you get both with children.  I treasure this photo of Kenzie on her first birthday celebration.  She eats with gusto when she likes something.  And this cupcake was devoured by this sweet girl.  If only I could eat like this but then again I'm trying to lose some weight.  :(

This past week was Spirit Week at our school.  We had an assortment of cute hats on Crazy Hat Day.

It always makes me smile to see the children having fun. Sometimes the simple things like peeking out give them such delight.  

And then there was this special moment.  Sawyer's mom is pregnant.  She came on to our playground and all of the children swarmed around her.  Sawyer was showing them her tummy.  He held his hand on her tummy and kissed it.  He is going to have a baby brother.  So cute ...

This last photo is one that is near and dear to my heart.  Kristin and Katie are my brother Steve's daughters.  How thankful I was to have been included in their lives as they were growing up.  Now that Kristin is married and has her own little girl, I can't help but smile.  I wish I lived closer but I treasure these photos.  How sweet is this?

Yes this is Tuesday and not Monday so I'm a day late.  However, I didn't want to miss out on counting my every day blessings.  So I'm linking up with Ann Of A Holy Experience for Multitudes on Mondays.

Blessings and love,
