a beautiful oil painting of a tree. It's so serene.
My board of memories,
Old family pictures,
valentines, postcards, and photos of things from time goes by...
it makes me smile to have it!
For always and ever I will have these up,
I didn't take any when Bella was born, and I regretted it so much,
so when Meritt was newborn we had "Baby Pictures"
taken, and I cherish them...
A warm cozy fire, on a cold chilly day!
My antique pug puppy print, that reminds me of my sweet baby Emma.
These three pictures were my Christmas present from Matt,
our first Christmas married...
I think they were one of the most thoughtful gifts I've ever gotten...
They simply read:
They remind me to do all of those things.
Last but not least, my stained glass window.

Bella has been working really hard in the last few weeks on reading. She is in the top reading group in her class, and the whole concept seems to be really clicking for her. So, the other day we took a trip to the library to pick out some books that might be a little easier for her to try and read without help. Low and behold, about two days after, she was reading one of the books start to finish. It wasn't the easiest one in the pile, I guess it was just the one that drew her attention the closest... but none the less, she seems to have gotten the hang of it. Now she is attempting to read everything in sight.... She is a sponge soaking up everything. Isn't this an exciting time?! I don't think there are many better gifts than the gift of the written word, and the ability to read it.
