Thursday smiles

Week of ups and downs..
Lots of smiles..
Lots of snuggles
Lots of Auntie Nicole and Uncle David
Math homework
Kitty snuggles
Anxious faces waiting at the door
pizza for dinner tonight...even though it was late
A lunch date with my hubby
Kids saying eww when David gave me  a kiss goodnight
Girl talk
Planning outings with the kids that we have always wanted to do because we haven't gotten around to it
Halloween excitement
Listening to lots of giggles,
Seeing lots of smiles
Sharing secrets
Bath time hugs
Watching hubby interact with the kids
Knowing that tomorrow night when I come home from work they won't be here and knowing that, although we will enjoy the quiet, we will miss them a little bit
Good first week..
Hectic first week..
A week of adjustments...
A week of little voices and little hands
A week of trying to figure out boundaries
It's been a whirlwind of a ride...but there have been a hundred smiles...lots of laughter, lots of noise that has filled up the house...
Hoping that your weeks have been good..I know that there have been some struggles...I hope that you have found smiles in places where they have been least expected...hugs and lots of love to you all.


  1. Thank you Col for hoping that we have found smiles in places where they have been least expected. Your week does sound hectic, but one filled with lots of laughter and love. Love the bit about the kids saying eeww when David gave you a kiss goodnight!!

  2. I'd say that all the good far outweighs the bad this first week. Sounds like those kids are in a great environment. Probably for the first time! That should put a smile on your face for sure. It's putting one on mine! Love ya Nic.

  3. The good always outweighs the bad if we look closely as you did. Lovely post!
