Sleepy Dog Nights (Part IV)

We decided to buy our dog a bed last night. We spared no expense when purchasing, and selected a bed with a cushy memory foam inside. Doggy would be happy. But as soon as we got home and directed Dog to her new bed, the littlest boy jumped in too. They made quite a sweet pair, curled up together ♡

Coloring

It’s been raining pretty much non stop for weeks now. I wish I could say the forecast foresees an end, but that is not the case. Don’t get me wrong, I’m loving the lush, brilliant colors brought out by all the rain. But it would also be nice to get out without either being poured on or stepping in water and mud puddles up to my knees.

So it seemed the perfect opportunity to pull out the coloring books for my daughter, my sister and myself. We enjoyed coloring in my daughter’s books for awhile before moving on to the “adult” coloring book.

The beautiful pictures in this book are so intricate, coloring can only happen in either pieces or while little ones sleep.

Two hours later, we finished our coloring and are now icing our elbows.


Babes in Birdland

My children love animals. My oldest, from a very young age (before one) would hold a chicken gently in his lap. Puppies would curl up and fall asleep beside him. Now, at 13, his gentle spirit and love for animals has only increased. He reads all he can about the world around him and it’s furry and scaled creatures.

The others equally love animals, although maybe not to the extent of reading every reference material they can get their hands on. But still, their love of animals from a young age shows their innocent, pure hearts.

But I must say, the one that takes the cake currently is my two year old. He LOVES my parents’ bird and steals away to watch him and sing to him every chance he gets. Lately, he’s taken his love to a new level and joins him in the birdcage. The bird, despite what you may think, is calm and happy when my son is with him. They just sit together. And when my son is discovered and removed, the bird seems upset and chirps for his return.
