But one of the things I learned when I lost my dear Andrew is that you have to cherish the small things in life, find happiness where you can, and smile as often as possible. And despite the pain this week, I did find moments that made my heart smile.
So what made me smile this week?
I put new trim on the littlest country kid's blankie.
He was so excited to have his soft edges back.
The oldest country kid learned how to sew a pillowcase.
He is taking it to the county fair next month.
Betty and Baby Girl are still going strong sitting on their nest together.
Look at all those soft feathers they have lined it with!
Mario the rooster (who is going to a knew home next week) likes to fly
out of the shed every morning. He does everything with style!
Mr. Bill stands guard as the mamas to be get an early morning bath.
The yard is blooming, full force. Look at all that pollen!
We got a new, bigger pool for the ducks. The chickens had to call a meeting to eyeball it. LOL
The ducks enjoying their new pool!
The best part of having to grocery shop with mom? The penny pony at the check out.
See a penny CAN still buy something.
Snapping green beans. Let the canning begin!
Family dinner at Denny's (kid's eat free night) catching Pokemon together.
Not sure why the Pokemon is on my hubby's pancakes, but the kids didn't care!
Not only did we catch the Pokemon, we caught a photo of the elusive dad person. LOL
Remember to take time out of your busy day to find your own things to make you smile!
