{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real}

Joining in today for the first time with the gals over at Like Mother, Like Daughter for their weekly {Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real} posts.

~Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life~

Robin's nest in our backyard with four perfect blue eggs.

I was taking a picture of the roses and peonies when Claire wandered by the window. She was just thrilled to find me standing there! That smile always makes me happy!

Big brother Matthew taking his baby sister out to play. I love seeing them like this, the boys are so gentle and sweet with her. 

 This is what I walked in to find after I asked my 13 year old to please sort and fold a basket of socks...  There were socks spread out everywhere! I couldn't find an angle that actually managed to capture them all!! Sock Art he says...


Some brother, who shall remain nameless, left the pantry door open and Claire found a bag of flour... When I came into the room this is what I found! (I'd like to find whoever it was that told me while I was pregnant with Claire, "Oh, you'll have it so much easier now with her. Girls are so much cleaner and less destructive than boys..." HaHa! This little girl makes more messes than 2 boys combined! Maybe not more than all three boys though...)

  1. Hahaha... I love the sock art!!
    Such sweet pictures - thanks for linking up!

  2. Wonderful posting, and the "sock art" is hilarious. So glad you captured it.

    Sending good wishes across the miles,

  3. Oh, I bet cleaning up that flour off of the hard wood floor

  4. ha ha - that flour cracks me up and she looks SO proud of herself.

  5. I'm sorry I missed so many of your posts - Love the sock art -it's something my eldest son would do as well!
    I imagine the flour was "fun" to clean up - my twins used to love spreading things all over the floor too (it's the age I think).
    My dad always told us (he had 5 girls) how much easier boys were than girls, but after having had 3 boys I disagree there - however girls certainly have plenty of energy as well!
    Have fun with your beautiful family
