I Love Thursday #133 – So Many Blessings
This is the 133rd 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.
Happy Cinco de Mayo! We happened to go grocery shopping on Monday and unwittingly picked up all the makings for guacamole. It took us about half an hour to chop everything and before you know it, yummy. We haven’t made guac much lately and I always wonder why we don’t make it more often. It is, after all, made from fresh delicious ingredients. Maybe the Tostitos cancel out all the guac good-for-you goodness? I chose to believe that it is quite healthy. ~smile~
Real-life Super Heros! I just LOVE seeing the Justice League members and other imagined superheroes bowing for some of our real-life heroes. Some may take umbrage with Batman and Robin being included and front and center at that. Since Dr. Auntie Sue is a huge Batman fan, we felt it was quite fitting and perfect. Thank you to all of our real-life heroes doing their job every day so that we all may stay healthy and safe.
The difference one letter placement makes! A little girl wanted to write a message for her mom to see when she got home from work. She carefully chose her sidewalk chalk and used her best printing. Even the mailman enjoyed her handiwork and smiled at her while staying a safe distance away. Yes, I suspect a wonderful hero does live there! ~smile~
Sweet pea Colt is growing like a weed in spite of us missing most of it. Thankfully, his parents keep us in photos to enjoy as he is now in 3-6 months size clothes. That’s what happens when you have LONG legs. His cousins can definitely relate!
Colt is oh so ready for baseball season! He looks SO much like his daddy it’s unbelievable. While he doesn’t mind posing with his cousin Dominic at all, both he and Addison wonder what the heck they are supposed to do?! ♥ ♥
Dominic enjoys some activities by himself whenever he can. Reading a color book with Auntie Sue is fun – what is the difference between black and brown? Thanks to Gamma, he loves to sweep and then fill his paintbrush with a special color. All alone time must come to an end when trying to color. Watch out Dominic, Addison’s on her way over to eat some crayons. He can’t even enjoy a lawn chair by himself.
It is a rare occasion when Addison was up and dressed before Dominic, as our Princess prefers to sleep in. They both have big smiles for Gamma. We feel Andrea’s pain when trying to get a good picture of all three littles for Mother’s Day. Now all three babies – look over here. Over here! How do you get them all to look at the same time? Finally, Nurse Addison has her stethoscope and is ready to check your pulse and listen to your heart. Complete with a ruffly butt. ~smile~ ♥ ♥ ♥
