Little Chick at the Inn

"There is no time like the present to create a magical memory." ~Mama Hen
A couple of weeks ago Little Chick and I took a little trip up North to one of our favorite Inns. It was just for a night, but we had a lot of fun! I did not get a chance to write about it and wanted to share our great time. We first stopped for our ladies luncheon at our favorite quaint little restaurant. Little Chick made sure she had a highchair for her little doll. We then headed to the Inn and went for a dip in the pool. Little Chick was excited to use her new goggles. We had our dinner at the Inn and got Little Chick's favorite seat next to the fish tank. I promised my baby that we would go for another swim before bed. She had so much fun! I had a log put in the fireplace and had an enjoyable evening reading my book. The next morning we got our table by the fish tank and then went for a swim before we packed up to leave. It was a wonderful trip with my daughter!

My Little Helper & Smile Sunday

"Every day tasks are much more fun when we have someone to do them with." ~Mama Hen
While I was doing the dishes last night Little Chick came over to my side and just watched what I was doing. I looked at her and she beamed me a smile. I said, "Would you like to help me with the dishes?" She excitedly replied "Yes!" and went quickly to grab the chair so she could reach. It was the first time she did the dishes and she was so eager to learn. I was so proud of my Little Chick as she scrubbed away and then rinsed each one. It certainly made the every day task a lot more fun! Happy Smile Sunday!

Thanksgiving Thursday-Walk Towards the Light

"In times of uncertainty, walk towards the light and it is here that you will find that everything will be alright." ~Mama Hen

This scene said a lot to me when we were in Vermont. It shows two very strong large branches headed in different directions, yet all the smaller branches growing from each head straight up - directly toward the light. Nature can teach us so much. We may not always know which direction we should take. However, I believe that if we always keep God's ever radiant light right in sight no matter which way we go we will be just fine. There is so much to be thankful for each and every day. I am so grateful for my abundant blessings. May all your days be celebrated and given the utmost thanks.
Thanksgiving Thursday: 1.) Little Chick and my family. 2.) Gods love and ever comforting blanket of hope, strength and guidance. 3.) The pitter patter of rain on my window. 4.) Little Chick's warm hugs and heart melting I love yous. 5.) Inspiring talks with my best friend Marcy!

Weekend Trip to Vermont

"The moments we cherish the most may go by as quick as a flash, but the warm feeling they leave behind will last a lifetime." Mama Hen

This weekend I surprised Little Chick with a trip to Vermont. This was the third time she has taken a fun trip there and the excitement she had was contagious! We had an amazing time at out favorite Inn. On the way up we stopped at a delicious restaurant in Massachusetts. When we arrived we immediately got our bathing suits and headed to the pool. Little Chick had a blast swimming! On Saturday it was 5 degrees and snow flurries were coming down. It was perfect for a beautiful horse and sleigh ride. Little Chick was beaming when she saw the horse trailer pull up with the two gorgeous horses, Duke and Dancer, who would be pulling our sleigh. She watched eagerly as they were lead out and prepared for our ride. Little Chick met an adorable German Shepard named Barley. Of course she took the time to play with him and give extra hugs and treats. The sleigh ride was magnificent! We then returned to the Inn for another swim. On Sunday Little Chick was excited to go to Billings Farm and see all the baby cows. She had so much fun petting them. They were all about one month old and some just two weeks. It was a beautiful trip to Vermont!

Dear Little Chick & Thanksgiving Thursday

"Beautiful daughter of mine, may you always know the love I feel for you is greater than any amount that can ever be measured." ~Mama Hen

Dear Little Chick,

You are my beautiful baby girl and I am so proud of you all the time! You are growing so quickly and I just want to stop time and cherish each moment. You are doing so well in school and work so diligently on your homework each day. You are eager to read and learn new words. Your excitement to see everyone around you smile brightens the day for all. You are so talented in so many things! You have taken your piano lessons seriously and impress me every day and your instructor each week at class. You are becoming an incredible swimmer! You swim like a fish with your head under water and I can't tell you just how proud I feel when I see how much you have accomplished in such a short time. You are always considerate of everyone around you and your heart is so full of compassion, love and kindness. It is truly special to have empathy for others and at such a young age you already know how important it is to be an empathetic person. Your love for your animals and for horses is contagious! You are so caring and fun to watch as you take such excellent care of the animals you are around. You love to make me beautiful pictures and surprises. When you say "Mommy, close your eyes. I have a surprise", my heart melts. We remind each other each day of how we are one another's gift from God. I prayed my whole life for you and I am so incredibly thankful for being blessed with my beautiful daughter! I love you my adorable gift from God!



Thanksgiving Thursday: 1.) Little Chick and my family 2.) For my mom who is always there for me with a listening ear and endless love. 3.) Beautiful sunny days! 4.) Friends who take the time to really listen. 5.) Good old fashioned letters in the mail (thank you Marcy) and for technology that brings us closer together.

May you always know the same love, strength and kindness that you so selflessly pour out to the rest of the world daily.

Little Chick Lost Her Fourth Tooth

"Oh the excitement of all the childhood milestones! Enjoy each and every one. Time has a way of flying by." ~Mama Hen
Little Chick lost her fourth tooth this morning. She woke me up at 6:30 and said "Mommy my tooth came out! I am so excited!" We got our little suitcase out and she carefully placed her tooth inside. She can't wait to have her tooth fairy, Oceana Wavey, come tonight. She already placed the suitcase under the pillow for when she goes to sleep tonight. Oh how exciting it is to be young and waiting for the magic of the tooth fairy! These are precious moments we will cherish always.

Ready for the tooth fairy!

My Favorite Days

"My favorite days consist of simply being with you my love."
~Mama Hen

As the weekend approaches, Little Chick always says "Is this a Puppe (doll in German) and Mama day?" I let her know when Saturday will be here and then we get excited that we will have the whole day to ourselves to explore and go on adventures together! These are my favorite days! Little Chick lets me know all the time that she loves our Puppe and Mama days. Today we headed to the beach with Lolli again. We have been doing this a lot since the New Year began. We also went right after school yesterday as the temperature here started to rise. Today was spectacular! We spent about three hours walking Lolli and petting every dog (at least 50) that came to see Lolli. Little Chick was so excited to ask everyone if she could pet their doggie. She is such a huge animal lover! It was about sixty degrees today and the sun was shining so brightly upon the beach. As I watched Little Chick walking Lolli with her new pink leash from Santa and beaming when she could befriend many more doggie pals, I could not help but feel so at peace and blessed. These are my favorite days! Simply being with my beautiful baby daughter and taking our sweet doggie, Lolli, for a walk on the beach.
