Today - kept forever.

The days are flying by! I can't belive I haven't posted in almost a month. The camera has been MIA for a few weeks and I've used that for an excuse. My blog serves two purposes. 1. Creativity outlet - Writing funny stuff that has happened and entertaining myself and you guys. 2. Quasi-journal for sentimental moments and big events, and little events I just want to hang on to. I don't have any pictures, but I want to remember...

-Kissing Jemma's little lips like she were a buttered biscuit...just can't get enough of her milk breath. I don't care that she slimes me every time.

- Singing "I am like a star shining brightly for FHE and watching Evan smile his brains out while he held up his crooked yellow construction paper star in the "sky".

- Giving Nic a bigger kiss and a longer squeeze than usual when he got home tonight and apologizing for being a poop about something I shouldn't have been a poop about.

-Videoing Nic and the baby with a lump in my throat because I know this day will all too soon be a dusty memory. She had on a purple flowered onsie and was experimenting with chuckling. Nic told me about "making it" at work and we remembered how terrified we were two years ago when he first got the job. Afton had a Koolaid moustache and underwear on. Evan just wanted to see himself on the camera in his spiderman underwear and sweaty curls.

-Hmm...I heard screaming and fighting outside earlier and now there are two ambulances parked right outside my window. The twirling red lights are shining right on my face. I am so so anxious to hear news on our house. It's time to move.

I love my little family. This is a portrait of today.

Oh, the camera thing is a serious crisis in my book. When my camera broke it was the perfect excuse to upgrade and get an even better one. Let's go to the park sometime and I will take a million pictures of your little ones. Shall we. Now, I am no "photographer" but my camera might just help out and get a few good shots. Let me know if you want to....

I love hearing the Larkin ramblings of the day. They make me feel like a fly on your wall watching your sweet little family just do their thing.

Hope you hear on your house soon. Heaven knows we ALL need to get out of here!

The only thing I have to say about the beach is....it's open to the public and my house is open to you!

So you're probably going to get the short sale and move away. I've always thought you are so beautiful spiritually and temporally. I will just have to keep reading up on your blog!!

I love this post Angie... just love it. Baby milk breath is one of the sweetest things in life, I have to agree!
And I so know how you feel about being ready to move. I never imagined it would take so very long to hear back about these houses!

Oh, and if you don't have time to do it, I won't take it personally. :)
