Good Things

If you've never shopped Etsy...you really must. It's an online mall of sorts...much like ebay...but it's full of shops where you can buy handmade. There is something there for all budgets...and I'm a big fan of supporting the "little man." All of the items are so unique...products you won't be able to find in stores. Plus, seems like whenever I order anything...it always gets to me right when I need it.
Last night for instance....puke fest at our house. Sorry for the graphic terminology...but any other word just wouldn't do the experience justice. Trinity and Tristan both got food poisoning from some Stoneyfield farm yogurt that I bought. From 9 pm until 3 am Zac and I were stripping beds, washing kid's hair....over and over and over again. Needless to say, I'm thinking our littles may never want another blueberry yogurt again...and me either.
I needed some cheering up....and low and behold...i opened my mailbox to find a sweet little package that I had forgotten was even coming. Isn't it genius that they packaged my necklace in an altoid tin? Cute and resourceful...and protective. Genius.
And then when you open it up...there it is...in all of it's vintage goodness...with pinks and blues and sparkle. Check out the little owner's blog here - there should be a link on her page for her etsy shop.
Hmmmm...suits me don't you think? Definitely a little piece of lovely that this tired girl needed to brighten my outlook on life...today.
Another piece of lovely....more sunny weather and playtime in the yard with daddy. Brady is on a "Captain Jack Sparrow" kick, therefore we're hearing about all things pirate. Zac and the kids enjoyed a little sword fighting in the yard (via sticks) and then they looked for lost bounty (that came in a shoebox...I believe they discovered pretzels?)
And finally....a perfect shot of my Koala...with his cheeks rosy and his smile perfect and mischievous. He's one of my very favorites.
And captain Jack Sparrow himself, freckled and blue eyed. Don't ya just want to kiss his sweet cheeks?!
And for those of you who were wondering...I had a great meeting today with his sweet homeroom teacher and his special ed teacher. They were very encouraging and told me about all of the good they see in Brady...and how much he has been improving. Ahhhh...balm for this worried little mama's soul. I think they are going to try and include him in a small group a couple times a week with the focus being on social skills. Anyways, good things happening for this little pirate.

Brayden's freckles sure are cute. I'm positive at least one of our kids, if not all, will end up with freckles. How could they not with a mother who is covered in them!!! :)
