Here are just some of the moments I am thankful for over the last couple of weeks.
I went to Wal-mart a couple of weeks ago and saw these. They looked so beautiful that I had to get them. And yes, these are real flowers. Obviously artificially dyed but still beautiful nonetheless.
I am thankful for God's beautiful creation.
On MLK day, J had to work for part of the day. JOE told me "momma, you cook everyday so today, I will make you breakfast!" She proceeded to organize and have a tea party for JAE and I.
I am thankful for this beautiful girl's consideration and her imagination.
We had a great time!
One night last week, we decided to take mommy/daughter selfies. I love that JOE now makes faces as well when I tell her to take selfies. JAE clearly thought we were both bonkers :-).
I am thankful for the silly faces and the smiley ones.
I am thankful for this moment almost 5-years ago. This picture recently reminded me of just how happy we were on our wedding day. This was at our wedding reception.
I am also thankful for my sisters and niece and nephew in the background.
Last weekend, the DMV area had the first snow storm of the season. J, JOE and I had a great time playing the Wii! JOE actually did pretty good. I know not a lot of people still play the Wii but this was definitely a fun family activity especially since we were all snowed in.
I am thankful for this precious father/daughter moment of J teaching JOE how to play.
We decided to build a snowman after the snow. JOE used to be scared of the snow.
I am thankful for her growing up and overcoming her fears to enjoy the beautiful scenery.
I am thankful for the family moment with JOE, JAE and J and our first family snowman :-).
I am thankful for JOE experiencing/making her first snow angel. The concept was a little foreign to her but she enjoyed it and didn't want to go back in the house.
I am thankful for being able to be silly! Yes, I also wanted to make a snow angel :-D.
I am thankful for sisterly love. I asked them both to smile. JOE smiled and JAE decided to stick out her tongue. Goofy but cute!
I am thankful for quiet moments cuddled with this little princess.
