(This is a video, click the play symbol to watch)
They all had their little jobs, Tim took the bag of food, Maddie had the jug of milk, and Molly had the towel to sit on. Oh we had so much fun! They played on their swings while I took pictures and Daddy built the fire. Tim found a big spider and stomped it (Just like a boy, huh?) and tons of tiny spiders ran out! Molly had me digging trash out of the creek (we don't like trash in our Secret Garden don't ya know). And My sweet little Madeline went to rest in the wagon because she was getting sleepy. Then we all gathered around the fire and ate smores til we thought we would pop.
I know I say this all the time, but I'm going to miss this. Childhood is fleeting, everyday with them seems to pass so quickly..... Not all days are this lovely but I'm trying so hard lately to really stop and appreciate it while I have it still. There really is no greater joy than sweet moments like this with my precious family.

Hey friends! Sorry I have been so scarce, but let me tell ya I have been bu-sy!! Miss Madeline was officially DONE on Saturday, so I have been shipping out pre-orders and working on all the other time consuming things that come along with pattern making. It feels so good to be done! I have a couple of blog awards coming up (I should have already posted about them but I'm a big busy loser) but that will just have to wait, because my kids need mama. Today I have a little crochet project to work on and we are going to take the day OFF. We will eat (I've already had one request for potato soup), watch, play, and pretend whatever they want! It's time for things to slow down a bit. I have been struggling through this yucky morning sickness, working on the pattern every spare minute, and taking care of the kids and the house (OK not so much the house, it's bad). I am worn out and so ready for a day like today! This picture was taken from our porch at the beach. Pretty cool huh? (Am I still allowed to say cool? What is the age cut-off for that word? Maybe I'll ask Ben, he usually knows about these things. lol!) Happy Lazy day everyone!

Those were some very good descriptions! I still haven't decided which one I like the best (you made this very hard for me). I'm going to have a friend help me choose today and I will let you know today or tomorrow who won the pattern. If anyone wants to add a description you are welcome to, the contest is open until I announce the winner. . xoxo, Samantha . The picture has nothing to do with the post, but I have this thing against posts without pictures. I don't like it. So this is another one of my favorites from the beach of Jake and Molly.

Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the trip. The first one above is my view from the porch holding my little angel Iris. The second is Lily, and the third is the two of them on the beach just before they started eating sand! LOL! Aren't they beautiful? It's hard to be away from them when I have seen them everyday for a week, I miss them already.
I love this picture of Timothy because he is so pretty, but I hate it because he looks so old. He is losing that baby look *sniff*.
Here is my Molly looking like an angel. I'm in love with beach pictures in white dresses!
This is my Paw Paw and Granny. I hope I look like her when I'm a great Grandmother! She's just beautiful!
And here's my little Sass! She took Paw Paw's hat for her beach pictures. My little bathing beauty!
