{I Love a Day...}

when chocolate pudding makes everything better

when simple things make you happy

like straws 

and ice

when backpacks, coats and shoes are immediately dropped at the door
to play an imaginary game of "student escape" 
and the sounds of "Say, Say my Playmate"
are loud and clear

 when smiles melt your heart

and are followed by hugs and laughter

 and even the big girls snuggle up for Elmo.

Wishing you that kind of day too,

*****again, sorry for the blurry photos*****


  1. I love those days too!

  2. Me too! I love when there's lots of smiles and heart melting...we happened to have one of those day yesterday...and it was a bit overdue I must say!

    Have a great day!

  3. I loved your post! I love that they still snuggle for a bit of Elmo! Can I ask you a question? How do you feel about aftershool playdates? Anyone out there want to comment, I'd love some advice. I don't like them. They make me nutty. I thought of it with your post because it seems that you do afterschool what I like to... simple time, sisters together, homework, playing, dinner, ahh. But sometimes I feel guilty about not having friends over enoough.. what do you do?

  4. Catching up with you. Loved the dolphin.
    I'm pulling straws out for Evie. What a great idea.
    Glad life is warming up for you.
    But that means it's warming up for us too. . . .

  5. I have got to have one of those days soon. I don't want to gripe, I just came off vacation. BUT, the days are long and hard and full of stress right now. I try to "act" like they aren't, but I have so much on my mind. I think I'm turning off the computer in a few minutes, and leaving it off for a few days.

    Love your post and the sweet pictures. :)

  6. Those days are the best!! Enjoy!


  7. I love that pudding baby!! I have a couple series of photos like that! I love love watching my kids playing so well like that... Hope you have a lovely weekend!!

  8. hehe...the straw picture melts my heart. Your house is always filled with so much love.
