Happy Halloween!

My little pumpkin and tinkerbell! What a fun night!Maya decided she wanted to be Tinkerbell when her friend Gracie told her that she was going to be Tinkerbell! Here they are!Someone's excited to get started!

A day in the life...simple pleasures

Well, it has been awhile since I blogged, but I had a fun day on Thursday, a day filled of just little, simple pleasures and I wanted to share! The girls and I started the day doing laundry (this has become a Thursday tradition!) However, the girls wanted to help and it was really fun to do it together!

We spent the rest of the morning at a friend of mine's house. She made us some delicious homemade applesauce last week and I wanted to learn how to do it! She invited me over and we made 10 jars worth! It was a lot of fun and the girls helped out too.

Later that afternoon, we played outside for a little while. Aliyah loves to push Maya around on her bike. Maya seems to enjoy the free ride as well! There are few things that bring me more joy than seeing my girls play together and be friends.
When Aliyah takes her nap, Maya and I usually do some "school." She loves to learn and it is our special, quiet time to be together. I really enjoy it. I really think life is about enjoying the simple pleasures everyday. And, today, was one of those days that seemed full of them.

And, of course, being pregnant, one of the greatest treasures of all!
