Grateful for...


....these two


 their creativity

 

their love for each other


their energy


their adventures


their mate ship


the quiet times


 the cute bits


the yummy bits


and the sweet bits
 

I know it's one of those kids posts, but these last couple of weeks, these two have made me smile, made me laugh, made me cry but most importantly they have made me LOVE being their mum...thanks you two ♥

You know what I mean don't you?

Hope you have had a good week filled with lots of grateful moments.  
More gratefulness round at Beth's  ♥

So sweet! Those pictures are the dearest memories. It's so clear these are two happy, happy kids. My kids are adolescents now but some pictures of them when they were about the age of your children are still hanging in the hall and these pictures still put a smile on my face when I look at them.
Enjoy this time with your children Cathie!
Bye,
Marian

Oh yes, children are certainly worth being grateful for! I love the way your two look so happy together - the little hand holding pic and the lollypop smiles are my faves. I also spied one of our favourite places to visit when we're in Melb. Have a fantastic Sunday Cathie. xx

Cathie, that's a lovely post, treating us to your gorgeous photos as always. I am grateful that I have just had two weeks with friends from Germany. This time included their child, a 9 year old to play with my children- the wonder of children playing happily together despite language barriers.

Kymmie said...

What beautiful photos. (I love their coats too. WitcheryKids? I bought the same jacket for my eldest boy, and he hated it. Such a shame, because it looks divine on your son.) You have beautiful kids, and so glad that you adore all the big (and little) things about them.

And yes, I know exactly what you mean.
