Icing on the cake

My 3 sons... Monkey See, Bud, Monkey Do
Motherhood is exhilarating, exciting, emotional and exhausting.
Some days it's all cake.
Other days, it's a giant piece of cake slathered in the yummiest frosting ever known to mankind.
(yes, I have cake on the mind).
Puddin, Daisy, Bud, Monkey See, Monkey Do- March 2009

One of my biggest surprises about being a mommy to many little munchkins is the relationship they have with each other.
Puddin and Monkey See checking out Bud- March 2009

I ADORE watching them love on each other.
Puddin, Monkey See, & Monkey Do- Sept. 2007

It melts my heart to watch them interact with such joy
and love for each other.
Puddin and Bud, March 11, 2009

Now, don't get me wrong, it's not always rainbows and puppies around here. They argue, disagree, and as of late, a certain someone has taken to pinching. *sigh*
BUT a lot of the time they don't do any of that stuff. THEY LIKE EACH OTHER!!!!
Monkey Do and Puddin- August 2011

Hearing my two year old ask her sister if she had a
good day is precious!
Listening to my four year old pray for his siblings and the
"bootiful weader we awre havin" is a sweet, sweet sound.
Monkey See, Puddin, Monkey Do- 2008

When my two year old busts her lip, (a first for us and very traumatic to say the least) it comforts me to know that her sister is just as worried and concerned as I am.
The concern, joy and love they show for each other every day is, well, icing on the cake!

Monkey Do, Puddin and Monkey See, July 24, 2009

It's a relationship I didn't really visualize when we decided to have another baby. Yes, I wanted my children to be close, to be friends and to love each other, but I didn't really know the joy it would bring me to see it all unfold before my eyes!
Puddin and Monkey See, the first time I really saw them being friends and
LOVING to play with each other! Watching a dream become a reality!
Fall 2007

When we were expecting the boys, I prayed that the Lord would give us the wisdom and the strength to raise our children in a godly home and to bring them up in a way that would be honoring to Him. I also prayed that they would be close in their relationships with each other. I am humbled to see God honor the desire of my heart! What a blessing!
To see them love on each other, encourage each other and find joy in each others company is such a blessing!
Thank you Lord for this gift!

 Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the
desires of your heart.
Psalm 37:4
Watching these two, snuggled up in a laundry basket telling secrets! What a precious time!

But, I have also been schooling

Busy Night

So much to share... so much to say!We had a great weekend!
Kids are busy...but happy!
Life is busy...but good!
BSF starts back next week and I am so excited!
But for now, I leave you with this...
A busy night! (I think there will be a lot more nights like this).
I'm frantically filling orders so that I can frantically fill my stock items for the upcoming shows.
Should be interesting!
I hope to fill you in on details soon.
