Little thoughts that become big, beautiful outcomes...
Don't you just love it when a plan comes together??? This photo, believe it or not, was taken in the dark. Luckily for me it takes a freight train to wake up Ethan, so I got away with the flash.
You see, they say that if you put your mind to it, anything can happen. And I am one lucky chick when it comes to putting my mind to things and then having them come out completely as I hoped. This picture, to me, is just a little snapshot of time, testament to what can happen when my tiny mind starts ticking.
I wanted curtains in the kids rooms, and took myself off to the fabric shop in search of some cheap material. See those curtains? TOTAL BARGAIN! They were $50 for two sets (Alice has some too), are fully thermal blocked curtains and the cutest little animals on them you ever did see. Now, see that train bed? Ethan didn't like the bed he had. I loved it, and I have kept it for Alice. But that there train bed? SEVENTY BUCKS!!! Ethan was soooo stoked that even now, about four weeks after we got it, he still shows it off to people when they visit. And that dog....she is just the most special dog. She's perfect, and she loves each one of us sooo much. This particular night, Ethan was adamant that she go to sleep at the same time as him, and then he popped that red blanket on top of her, "because it was too cold Mum". And that's where they both stayed til the morning.
And that boy? I knew he was coming too. And I'm so happy he's turning out to be such a sweetheart. A big, gorgeous, adorable sweetheart.
At least today.
