Just a real quick hello because this picture makes me really happy.

I am seriously not even exaggerating (I even have witnesses that will confirm this) but when I pulled out the camera and we started telling the kids to smile for a picture Brooke put her arm around her cousin.

It brought tears to my eyes.

Oh and another thing that made me happy today was that Brooke experienced one of my favorite things for the first time ever.

I am not a good enough person to have shared my apple fritter but I did give her some of a glazed donut.

I hope you are having as good of a Saturday as Brooke eating good food and hanging out with your best friends.

Happy Saturday to you! The first time my kiddos put their arms around each other for a picture, I teared up too! Now they do it all the time without being asked. (I wonder how long that will last…)

Today’s a perfect day for homemade guacamole, grilling, and s’mores made with chocolate chip cookies instead of graham crackers! Hope you’re having a great weekend! :)

oh my gosh that picture brought tears to MY eyes! I can’t imagine what an affect it had on you!! That is just about the most precious thing ever! Having grown up with almost no cousins… I am so happy she will have these “built-in-best-friends” for life!!

Had a Half this morning that went surprisingly Ok… but my family is all in NYC without me and I am so so lonely!!! I can fill only so much of my day with workingout/running, then I am bored!!

OH MY GOD HER CHUBBY LEGS! I love them so much! I miss them, my little 16 month old just lost hers some how. I MISS THEM SO MUCH. I feel bad because when she’s 16 I am still going to miss them and I am going to embarrass her so much.

Now that I look again I see that she might have pigtails in the top pic, but it looks like a side ponytail and it is freakin’ adorable!
