All is Well After the Hurricane

"Give thanks for the gift of simply being with family."~Mama HenWell, the hurricane is over and we are so thankfull that we are all fine. We have no power, but that is the least of worries in these moments. It was one of the most frightening things I have experienced. Having my daughter makes the worry so much greater in times like these. With two enormous trees looming in our yard, I spent the night praying they would stay in tact. Our prayers were heard and we are fine. I hope everyone that experienced this storm is doing well. Have a good week!

Thanksgiving Thursday - Blessings

"Celebrate each day!
It is a gift to be unwrapped and appreciated daily." ~Mama Hen
Yesterday Little Chick and I decided it would be a great idea to head to Mystic for a day trip. We went to the aquarium and to Mystic Village for a delicious lunch. We then headed to the beach for some splashing fun! The waves were lively and we had a blast! We had so much fun that we made a plan to go back up north to the beach today. We spent a few hours playing in the water until a big rain came. We headed into town for lunch and then came home. It was an amazing two days filled with abundant blessings! Thank You Dear God!
Today at the beach! What a great day!
Thanksgiving Thursday: 1.) Little Chick and my family. 2.) For beautiful days with my adorable daughter at the beach. 3.) For finally feeling relief after an annoying bout with poison ivy. 4.) Family time! There is nothing like simply being together with the ones we love. 5.) For wonderful presents that come in the mail. Thank you to our two beautiful cousins in Spain for Little Chick's great birthday package!

All the Little Happy Moments

"All the little happy moments add up to a life filled with contentment and the fondest of memories." ~Mama Hen
Today my best friend Geri came by for dinner and some family fun. When I was putting Little Chick to bed I thought about how many happy little moments we share each day. I always try to fill our days with fun things and most of all the happiness of simply being together. We started our day at a park with Little Chick's friends and they played and we had a picnic. Then my friend came in the afternoon and we played lots of games and then of course we had a birthday party for some of her furry friends. I let Little Chick use my good camera and she did a fabulous job! She was so cute directing Geri and I on what faces to make. It was a day that had no particular significant moment, however all the little moments added up to the most magnificent day!

"OK mommy make this face."
"Gege and mommy make this face."
"I love you mommy!"
So silly!

Little Chick & Lolli at the Beach

"There is such peace in sharing family time at the beach."
~Mama Hen

Little Chick, Lolli and I took a trip up to the beach in Guilford. It was Lolli's first time at the beach and we were excited to share our favorite place with her. We had so much fun swimming for hours! Lolli was not sure if she wanted to go in at first. But when she did, Little Chick was there to make sure she was loving it. It was a beautiful day at the beach!

One tired Little Lolli.
Little Chick loves Lolli.
Happy Smile Sunday!
