and my heart sings...

after what has been an emotionally exhausting couple of days there was joy to be found if only you could look for it in the simple things....

1. helping in the kitchen... you know taking all my stuff out of cupboards, throwing cheerios on the floor. me just allowing it all to happen and taking the joy in seeing them smile.

2. Helping with housework.. never have two little boys loved to sweep as much as these too. pure, simple joy!
3. Lending a hand to help build our new house... the boys loved getting their first sneak peak at our new digs.. better yet was helping daddy and grandpa with some wiring.
4. An inspirational, life changing movie that rocked my core. So simple and stunning... beautiful. go see it!

5. Mornings... lately i have loved spending mornings with these two goofballs. They can't wait to jump on the couch with some milk and a good episode of our favorite show The Backyardigans.
6. And last but not least.. the ecstatic joy that pulsed through my veins when I opened up the mailbox and found THIS!!!!

I remember Cole always loved at helping at the house too. I know he was there alot and it seemed to help with the transition of moving. So glad that you're finding joy!

It's been too long since I've visited your blog.. but it's good to see good things are happening (especially the house!) I love the picture of the boys "helping" in the kitchen with the cherios :) somedays you just have to smile! good to hear that August Rush is a good movie, when I saw the previews I knew I had to see it (and I know I'm gonna cry - why do we do that to ourselvs, haha)

I've been so busy I haven't been reading blogs. I'm happy to read you are happy and having good things. I like the new look, too.

My two love to sweep. They aren't really that helpful but it is hard to not be charmed by them as they very purposefully push the broom across the floor.

Twins are so great. So exhausting, but so great.
