You Made The List

I look at them and smile. My family.

I watch my husband share his passions with his children. Motorcycles. Videography. Teaching them how things work. Stunt Men.

Paintball.

I walk with my girls through Target and as we pass pretty lingerie. My eldest says, "You should wrap that up for daddy on Christmas." I smile because they know their parents well. :)

I listen as my boy talks about his birthday party. The people that he wants to invite. He lists only one child. The rest are our friends.

He whispers to one of them, "I'm having a party and you made the list."

And I smile. These are memories that I want to remember always. Memories of togetherness.

So I keep counting with Ann:

~A husband that dreams and encourages dreaming.
~Children that like to cuddle up close and listen to our stories.
~Words from little boys and girls.
~Friends that are family.
~Sushi Dates :)

  1. Well. Looking at your family makes me smile too. They sure are beautiful. And it sounds like it's an inside and out kind of thing. I'm guessing the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. So glad you linked to Playdates!

  3. Beautiful family...and that photo makes me wonder, if somehow, technology's invasion of our homes has led Dads to share more with their kids?
