An Overflowing Heart

I love being a mom. There is nothing that I would rather do. At times, I do get tired. Not very often, but sometimes "Mom" can make me cringe. After a long day of breaking up fights. I just need a little break.

And then, something wonderful can happen. Tonight it was Savannah who made me cry tears of joy. We went to her Christmas program at her school. It was so cute and she of course did great. Afterwards, we went and rented "Horton Hears a Who". (It was great!!!) Anyway, we were watching the movie and laughing. Savannah crawled into my lap and gave me a big hug. She said, "I love you so much Mom." I said, "I love you too!" Then she said, "I can't even tell you how much." I said, "I understand, I feel the same way." She said, "I don't think there is even a number." Well, that's all it took.....a heart overflowing with joy!

With the first snowfall, comes the first snowball fight.
Even though Savannah had been sick, she was ready to
get out there and play for awhile.

Getting ready for the fight!

We woke up to our first snow this morning. The kids are so excited.
Chandler got dressed as fast as he could so he could go outside and
do his favorite thing.....shovel snow! He loves it!!!! In fact, he goes
to our neighbors and shovels their driveways too. He is such a good
