I Love Thursday #134 – Blessings Galore
This is the 134th post of things we love for the week. We post these loves each Thursday along with LeeAnna on her blog at Not Afraid of Color. Several additional friends also share on a weekly basis – be sure to check them out. You will surely find something to inspire you.
Hyacinths! Our hyacinth bulbs have just started blooming. If it would ever stop raining, perhaps I’d be able to enjoy all the daffodil and hyacinth blossoms at one time along with our pretty green grass. No real complaints though as we have missed a few late snowstorms by mere miles. Can’t you just imagine how nice these smell . . . And then, wham! Last Friday morning the sun came out, the robins were searching for worms, and the grass was a beautiful contrast to the daffodils and hyacinth bulbs. We even had a storm door free from recent lick marks made by Dominic and Addison. ~smile~
Smirnoff Ice Pomegranate Fusion! Sue and I don’t drink often but right there in the refrigerator door was this nice chilled bottle of Smirnoff Ice. While I prefer the original version the best, this Pomegranate Fusion version went down nice and smooth. Plus, now there’s an empty space in the door. A win-win all around.
Colt received a sweet onesie from our friend, Rosalie, that says, “Daddy’s backup” with a police car. Daddy thought he should try on a Cubs hat on our sweet pea – he needs to grow a bit before he can wear it full-time. Auntie Rose got a chance to hold, feed, and burp little Colt. In the end, the aunties were boring and we put him to sleep.
Dominic and Addison discovered that when they visit our home, they get a chance to watch Elmo laying on Auntie Sue’s bed. It nice and comfy, worthy of laying on your tummy! After that, it was time to pile on Auntie Sue while waiting for momma and daddy. The next morning, the car seats were in the kitchen. That’s new – but they ralied and asked to go bye-bye. Just buckle us in, please!
Gamma came over for Mother’s Day and was holding that baby, a.k.a. Baby Colt. It was a wonderful day for Gamma! Addi says Happy Day in her new fetching purple outfit. This cool box arrived via the mailman just begging to be colored. Addison finds it best to sit on the box to color, and lay across the box to reach the markers. She’s probably surprised she is allowed to HAVE markers. Whatever works best for you sweet babies! ♥ ♥ ♥
