The Little Things

"Enjoy the little things in life, for someday you realize they were the big things"

I saw that quote on a pillow on pinterest.  I don't know who it is from but it got me thinking how true that is when it comes to being a parent.  So that is what I thought I would post today, pictures of enjoying the little things. 

Like the smile on Korinna's face when she is riding.

Or that this little guy always asks me to make him a Chocolate Chip Pound Cake for his birthday cake.

That when Joel's sweet hands touch me I get all butterflies and still can't believe he is mine and he is here.  I remember how I ached to feel his touch while we waited on him to come home.

Watching the University of Alabama gymnist practice.
 How difficult it is to get a family picture for a holiday.  This was Easter and the closest we got to a family picture.  I think this is one of about 20 attempts.

I have a feeling these birds will be a story when the kids are older.  I can hear it now as we all sit around the table after sharing our Thanksgiving meal, " You remember that time we got chickens"
 and Josiah was obsessed with them." 
Or I will remember that after I spent all day planting ALL of my planters I found Leila "planting" by picking the flowers our of the yard and putting them in the planters.

 Trains, Trains and more Trains.
 Elaina learning how to do a cartwheel.  She does them everywhere and honestly it reminds me of me.  Ask a brother or one of my parents. 

 Splurging on trendy, cool, totally awesome perscription sunglasses for Rin. By the way totally worth it.

  I have to say that I have discovered that instagram lets me capture so much of our everyday life.  I enjoy being able to snap moments that happen sometimes only so I can remember them later.  I probably overgram but I have plans for those snap shots.  I have found several companies that will let you turn your Instragram photos into everything from pictures, postcards, books and magnets.  I plan on doing some of this for Christmas presents.  So if you follow me on Instagram and you think I post to much now you know why.
