look who's two!

We celebrated our baby's second birthday over the weekend.  Not quite our baby anymore (sniff, sniff).

Here is Mason's "Happy Cake".  Dad did the decorating!
Balloons!  Mason loves balloons and enjoyed playing peek through them.
He's at the stage where every time he sees a camera he wants his picture taken.
His smiley face!  Happy Birthday Mason!  We love you.

Outside my window
... children waiting for the schoolbus, the sun is filtered by a few wispy clouds and the leaves of the purple ash are starting to turn color.

I am thinking... of my youngest.  His breathing is sounding restricted this morning.  Looks like we have encountered cold and flu season.

I am thankful... for every day.  With my dad's passing and my mom's health issues I'm really understanding the value in each day.

In the kitchen... harlequin squash, zucchini, butternut squash & cucumbers.  Gotta love the harvest season.

I am wearing... charcoal gray flannel pj bottoms, a purple tank top and a gray long-sleeve shirt over the top.  My bare feet are getting a bit chilled so I may be donning socks soon.

I am thinking... how good it feels to be entering a new daybook on the blog.  Life has been keeping me from one of my favorite hobbies.

I am thankful... for nap time, butterscotch morsels and laughter.

In the kitchen... sunburst squash, zucchini, tomatoes, beans, broccoli and other delights from the farmers gardens.

I am wearing... black workout capri pants, socks on my chilly feet and a turquoise tank top.

I am creating... new boards on Pinterest.  Such a delightful way to have two hours just fly by.

I am going... to write a few notes to friends this morning. 

I am wondering... how big the carrots are that we have growing in the garden.

I am reading... a Grace Disguised by Jerry Sittser.

I am hoping... my knees and ankles are finally on the mend so I can resume running.

I am looking forward to... the next few w…
