The Sweetest Thing

Connor and I were looking at a trailer for a movie on my computer. He was standing behind me in the chair looking over my head.

Out of no where he says, "I like the way your hair smells."

I told him thanks.

He then says, "My jacket and sweatshirt always smell like your hair when I put them on. It's my favorite smell."

My heart skipped a beat and I almost teared up. I told him I thought that just might be the most wonderful thing any one has ever said to me.

Maybe one of the sweetest things because it came from the heart of my eight year old boy who grows up a little to much every day.

Winter Wonder

The days are getting warmer and longer. Everyone is looking forward to the spring activities that will quickly turn into the dog days of summer. I love warm weather fun, but there is something so beautiful and fleeting about the winter days here in Central Texas. March means wildflowers will soon be in bloom everywhere and the crisp cool mornings will soon turn thick with warmth. Seasons come and go so quickly that I wanted to share a few shots I took of the beautiful winter we had this year. I am secretly hoping that winter will stay just a little longer.

Hauling Logs

James cut a dead tree down in our yard a few days ago. I looked out the window earlier today and saw Logan working on his "equipment" so he could haul off the logs still in the yard.

He then loaded the wagon with wood and tried to peddle it to the fire ring in our backyard. The weight of the logs kept tipping the wagon down and his make shift pin would pop loose. So he resorted to carrying the logs.

About that time, big brothers walks out to inspect the situation.

Logan looks at him and says, "Connor I've got a job for you. Take this log and go stack it over there. Then come back for another one!"

I instantly thought, Aggie Bonfire... oh thank goodness they couldn't find an ax!
