Tea for Two.

"Living is like tearing through a museum. Not until later do you really start absorbing what you saw, thinking about it, looking it up in a book, and remembering - because you can't take it in all at once."
-Audrey Hepburn

i am happy i keep a record of these moments, so that as they pass, i can go back and look them up, think about them, laugh, cry, revel, learn, and grow.

Health and Happiness.

this was how i spent my afternoon. the boys were napping, and graycen was painting with water colors outside under the bright sun. i took advantage of the peace and relaxed on a lawn chair with some magazines. i have a PET Scan next tuesday that has been weighing over me and i am about 10, 000 times more nervous for these results as i was for my last one. as i am quickly learning while battling cancer, is that you are only as healthy as your last scan. i hope i am healthy. i pray that i am.

Binky Boy.

this is lars. and lars loves his binky. he loves it more than anything. and hates when i take it away. he makes sour puss faces that lead into screams and then tears and then i give it back. i think lars will have his binky for a very long time. lars hearts binky.

this skirt will always remind me of my mom. carefully explaining the art of handmade. i hope graycen finds enough meaning in this skirt to pass it on to her child one day. or perhaps, if she ever becomes a mother, she will learn to sew from me and one day make her little ones their own clothes:)

Big Shots.

a few days ago i let my boys sit at the table like big shots... without their highchairs. with these two, there is no turning back. i doubt they will ever (willingly) sit in the highchairs ever again. and you know what? i am sort of okay with that. they take up too much space, they are annoying to keep clean, and there are two of them! talking about the highchairs still. ;) it will free up so much space. also, the first night we ate dinner with all of us sat at the table, it was lovely. dune and lars sat across from graycen and i, and i teared up at our little foursome. my boys are getting so big and growing so much and make me such a proud momma. 

can you believe our cheeks are even more pink today than they are in these pictures? we spent the day at the beach, and we had so much fun. i even got a really nice comment from a lady who told me she had enjoyed watching my kids all day and that i was a wonderful mother. it sure beats the usual comments i get like, "i wouldn't want to be you!" or "you've got your hands full." it was nice to be recognized for how i really feel about my children- blessed.
