Simple pleasures

Here's what has made me happy the last few weeks:

For Halloween my mom gave Ellie a bag with random crafty ingredients (this is so my mom, to think of something other than candy). Ellie now wants to have daily card making sessions which I love just as much as her - I try to let her make them herself, but I can't resist.

Hiking with our "backpack, backpack!" (sung to the Dora the Explorer backpack song). (Is "sung" a word?) This picture makes me teary-eyed because before I know it my best little friend will be starting school.

Gymnastics class. All I can say about this is "2,4,6,8, gymnastics is really great!"
My first quilt, for Cody. I'll get a better picture of it but this definately had to be in my "happy" post because I just love it and I LOVE having a baby boy! I also made a dolly quilt for Ellie with the scraps.

Jesus wants me to be loving; and kind to all I see,
showing how friendly and happy His little one can be.

A sunbeam! A sunbeam!

Jesus wants me for a sunbeam!

A sunbeam! A sunbeam! I'll be a sunbeam for him.

I know, so cheesy - but what a perfect fit for my little chicky and turtle. I took the costumes and book to nursery last Sunday - a complete hit. Hopefully this helps the whole "be nice" concept sink in.
