Shadows and Paper Airplanes

While my sister and her family were here for a few days at Christmas time, we went to the park by my house and made a bunch of paper airplanes and had a little contest. Their uncle is apparently quite the paper airplane builder! We were having fun with the shadows as well. Maybe it's one of those things where you had to be there. Oh well. Enjoy.


  1. I love when simple things make kids so happy and content, (and I also hate when you work hard to plan fun things with your kids and they don't appreciate it.)

    I'm glad you posted your confessions post. It's good to know I'm not the only one with the same struggles/trials. You are not alone. I've been an absolute terrible mom lately too. I wouldn't want to live with myself these days, I don't know how my family puts up with me. My biggest struggle in life is my tendancy towards laziness or putting things off. I know that if I don't work harder right now that in the future when my kids are gone I'll regret not being a better parent, yet somehow it's still hard to do those day to day things that I need to do.

    Well there was my confessional. So hope you have a good day and if you ever want to chit chat, my cell is still an AZ number.

  2. I love cousin fun!

    I too appreciated your last post. I have those feelings all too frequently. For a while I was so discouraged and frustrated. I have found that when I am feeling that way it's cuz I'm simply burnt out so I find a babysitter for an afternoon and I find something that rejuvinates me (which in my case is thrifting, or doing something creative). I've also started to take 1-3 hours a week to do something by myself for myself. I know it sounds selfish but it's what gets me through the mundane and if it helps me be a better mother/wife then I'm ok with that.

    I also try to think of all the things I do accomplish each day instead of focusing on all the things I didn't get done, because honestly I'm never going to get done everything on my list.

    We all go through funks. Don't feel guilty. You don't give yourself enough credit for how talented your really are.

    I'm up for a ladies weekend!!!
