Mary.

We have a new recurring visitor in our house - and her name is Mary.

Mary Poppins!

A friend of mine told me that her kids had watched and enjoyed this old favorite (and weren't afraid - that's a big thing!) so we gave it a try.

Not only did I really enjoy watching it, our two older kids have a new favorite movie.

What are some other old movies that are similar?  Any ideas for us??

Kea.

A new pal has moved to town, and her name is I K E A.  We love Ikea!! We went often when we lived in Florida, and now we have one less than ten minutes away.  What could be better?!?  It's a field trip in and of itself, not to mention a cheap meal and inspiration for decorating on the cheap.  Grandma got the kids these cute little metal cups and saucers, and to say they are a hit would be an understatement!

(A hit with the kids and the mama, that is...these don't break when they get dropped.)

Together.

Sometimes,
IMG_7547.jpg
Not as often as I should -
IMG_7548.jpg
Not as often as they would like -
IMG_7549.jpg
but sometimes,
IMG_7550.jpg
I just sit.
IMG_7551.jpg
I stay close while they play,
IMG_7552.jpg
not helping - not asking - not directing
IMG_7553.jpg
just being near.
IMG_7555.jpg
And every single time,
IMG_7556.jpg
I get a glimpse
IMG_7557.jpg
into what they have
IMG_7569.jpg
together.
IMG_7570.jpg
The best of friends.

One.

Our littlest brother - our busy baby - our favorite toddley boy- turned a year old over the weekend.  This year has just flown!  
Happy Birthday, Fletcher.  We love you so.

If you need me, I'll be rocking in the corner panicking about how quickly my children are growing up.

Cider

There's a local joint here, Louisburg Cider Mill.

I've heard people talk about it for ages -

the delicious cider and the supposedly delectable cider donuts -

but I hadn't ever been myself.

Leave it to my trusty mama kid adventure group to get us there!

A tour of how they make the cider and make the donuts as well as a wagon ride

(aka, a way for me to yet again hone my baby wrangling skills as Fletcher was not interested in sitting on my lap)

And we called it a full day.
