On the Lighter Side

I had an idea for a post. Kind of a good one if I say so myself, but as often happens, my thoughts were interrupted by my children. Rather than fight it, I went along for the ride.

While it is a fact that there is a lot of hurt and yuck going on here we try not to let those feelings inhabit our souls. While life around here has been long and heavy and short on the lighter side, we try not to let it weigh us down. Some days,we push the yuck factor to the side and let some light and life in.

Here's the proof. And proof that not all of our kids costumes are boy related as in this post. I turned on Enya. (Sail away, anyone?) You know, nothing like good edifying music to lift the soul. And here's what characters my PJ clad children turned into.

The Cowboy meets Laura Ingalls:

The Dancing Princess:

They got those moves from their mama! (Unfortunately!)
Notice Hope is taking a break from all the strenous exercise. Or maybe just trying to spare herself some embarrassing photos later in life.

"May I have this dance pretty lady?"

"Why that would be lovely, kind sir."

What has been the lighter side of your week?

Oh my goodness, they are way too adorable! I hate to age my kids but I can't wait until they are older and can do these kinds of things. You definitely have to let loose and be silly sometimes (a lot of times!) :) I hope things are starting to get better around your house, I'm glad your kids could lighten the mood! :)

How wonderful that you are able to see and savor your blessings...and let your childrens light shine...even in the midst of all these tribulations.

You are an inspiration my dear.

I have had many a day where I sit down to post and then the kids take over and writing about what ever antic there up to is so much better then anything else! Your children are precious blessings to you. Megan
