I couldn't ask for more!
The other night I was sitting in a large old wicker chair in Bells' room with her in my arms. As I looked down at her innocent sweet little face, I couldn't help but smile and any ounce of stress drained from my body. The sun had just set and there was little light left in the room. All I could hear was her tiny breaths and the crash of the waves against the shore line. As I looked down at my beautiful daughter I was so happy. I couldn't ask for a better family. We are complete, it will always just be the three of us and I couldn't ask for more. I am proud to be called Mommy and a Wife.

While Daddy Was Sleeping!

What happens when daddy is sleeping is between Bells and I. It was about a week ago when we needed to make out monthly town run. We would be leaving right after Miah's 10 o'clock class. He was exhausted from studying but Bells woke him up and he came out to play with us. He lounged across the couch and within minutes fell asleep again. How do men fall asleep so fast? I am jealous of this, it always takes me forever to fall asleep. We needed to fix up our piggies and so as I was painting our nails, a very sea, bright green color. Bells, I swear it was her, got a really good idea...

I agreed and said to be very quite. She knew we were up to no good. As his foot was placed perfectly to be painted, I ever so carefully leaned over his sleeping body and painted one foot, all 5 piggies!! Bells just kept looking up at me smiling and laughing, the cutest thing ever. I was hoping that he wouldn't notice until town or even class because I knew he would be wearing slippers and everyone would notice. Well gosh darn it, I heard him yell my name when he was in the shower and by this time I had forgotten all about it. I was startled and ran to see what he wanted. As I entered the bathroom one very sea, bright green foot was sticking out of the shower. Let's just say, I am glad Bells got my feet and not his, can you say Hobbit?

Until next time Daddy, shhhhh and go to sleep!!

My Little Monster

I wouldn't call myself a seamstress but I can get it done. I love to create and have fun. A good friend of mine made one of these cute sweatshirts for her son and I loved it. I decided I wanted to make one for Bells, to fit her personality...A MoNsTeR!! I loved the way it turned out and even better, she loves it too!! Too bad we live in Hawaii or else she could wear it more. I even made some more my nephews, who are even bigger monsters, I didn't think it was possible!!

Our Socks We Miss Thee

Before we left for our move to Hawaii we went to visit my sister and her family...we had such an awesome time. Just to visit some of those memories, 104 degrees and no A/C, 9 people running around the house, spraying Nathan naked in the back yard, Poop Sandwhich, Miah and Ellah's first professional baseball game, Big Foot Java and spending 2 incredible weeks. It might be a good thing we live far away because Cory and Miah are quite the team. They gang up and rally everyone, including Ave and I.
As we were leaving I realized I had forgot socks and so I grabbed a pair of Cory's, not realizing they were one of his favorite pairs. He did notice as we were on the way to the airport, but I needed some. I told him I would mail them back as soon as we got settled. I had very much planned to do so too. But then I just kept wearing them, hiking and hiking (the only time one wears socks in Hawaii). But the more I wore them the more I did not want to mail them back. I loved those socks, not so much for the comfort or brand, they weren't Nike! But because every time I put those socks on, I thought of all those memories and of Cory...I loved it! They are now stained with many more memories and I made the call and told him they will not be returned. When I explained why, there was a lot of laughter but deep down I know they love it. So much cooler than a lucky pair of underwear!!
