Making My Day a Little Brighter

Want to write this down, so I don't forget :)
Yesterday was one of those days. Just feeling a little down and couldn't seem to shake it off.
But I have to say, thanks to a chat with a friend and my little Erin you see in the photo above, things turned around.
A walk to get Evan from school with her on such a beautiful day weather wise was great!
Then when we arrived home she started planning a "surprise" birthday party for our neighbor, whom she loves.
Now it's not even this neighbor's birthday, but that's ok, right?
When I went outside, she was in Allison's backyard getting everything ready. So sweet.

Then she asked for a snack. A pudding.
Ok, I said.
She came in and I started to hand her the pudding, but then said to her.
"First you need to give me a _____" "Kiss" she says.
"You know me so well." I say.
"I know all your secrets." she says with a smile.
I'm sure you do, Erin :)

She is so, so sweet and I am so, so lucky to have her!

And on a final note...Let's Go Blues!!! They won game three against the Sharks last night. I only made it to the end of the second period because it was so late here. Almost 11pm. So happy to see the final score this morning :)

  2. That is so sweet!! They really know how to add a amile and some laughter to our lives!
    Hope the party went well!

  4. That is such a sweet moment. :) Thanks for sharing.

  5. Such a sweet stories. Those moments are just the best!

  6. Such a sweet story :) I absolutely love this age, but I think I've said that about EVERY age! I feel like I'm appreciating and soaking up every minute with Landry because I know how fast it goes, this second time around.

  7. So so sweet. Yes this is one to write down to remember.
    I still ask my girls for a hug when they want something.
    Or I will go into their rooms when they are watching a movie and tell them I need something.
    They always say a hug.....They are 22, 21 and 17. They still know my secrets, teehee.
