Quiet. Busy. Complete.

The past week has been a whirlwind with changes afoot professionally, demolition a'plenty at home and the continued bliss filled chaos of life with two extraordinarily active and passionate little girls.

Little things get me, from Avery devouring experiences at such a pace that she literally goes until she drops..



To the eyes-wide-open, loving and trusting in each moment approach of Briar...



At times I simply cannot bear to look away for fear of missing something, anything...



So, I haven't...



It's been sheer joy.

Amanda, my love. Must you break my heart with the picture of you and the girls and the puppy and those donkeys?

I love donkeys. I love black puppies. And you all look like you're having a wonderful time.

But, where's the snow? I see non-snow-covered ground there. I'm under 9 inches. It would be up to Briar's hips!

Oh, The Joys said...

Darling photos... I now feel I should have documented the Gingerbread House Fiasco of '07... otherwise known as: Monday Afternoon.

So sweet and joyous. And such beautiful girls! I love the picture of Briar looking so inquisitive and trusting, as you say.

What amazing people children are!
