Dish Washer...ramble.

One of my many job descriptions is "Dish Washer". Ya see, we don't have a "Dish Washing Machine"'s my job. Yep. I wash all of our dishes by hand. But, I don't wash dishes alone.

Not anymore. I have a cute three year old who L.O.V.E.S. "Waffing Dises".

And I LOVE his help. Don't worry, I re-wash everything that he "washes", he's not always so thorough. I just love hearing him giggle, and "scwub". Entertains him for at-least an hour. Sometimes I just fill the dish pan with soapy water,and give him the brush. Just playing in the water is great fun for him.

I love his crazy faces.

I love his "baby chub" that is sticking around a little longer than my other kids did.

I love to hear him say "I wub you so much"...

I love how he grins ear to ear. He grins especially big when he know's he's being naughty. As if to say "You know I'm cute know you love me". And I do.

I love our dish washing sessions...together. And when he is a teenager, I will remind him of how he loved washing dishes! It makes this mundane chore, so much fun when he's by my side.
This little lady draws. All. Day. Long. She loves to write letters to all of us. Daddy gave her his old franklin planner. And she carries it around everywhere. So. Precious!

This little lady is also getting glasses next week.
Now we will have two kiddos wearing glasses!
Speaking of Glasses...this little guy smashed his. And they will be fixed soon. Elliott is quite the ham lately. Constantly making us laugh. :)
In other news, I gave myself bangs. And layered my hair again. It's still long. Really long. But you can't see that in this picture.

I love the way a reddish tent to pictures can make them feel warm and fuzzy. Like those pictures of me as a baby taking my first steps. Knowing my mom grabbed her camera, as to not miss such a momentous occasion in my life. The tent has a way of making me feel nostalgic, and seeing the world through rose colored glasses. Speaking of my mom. She's been out of town this week, spending time with my brother, his wife, and my most precious nephew. They live in Georgia. And I'm a tad jealous my mom got to spend time with them, I was secretly hoping I could stuff myself into her suitcase and tag along.

(sorry it's so tiny, swiped it off of FB)
Seriously. Is my nephew not the cutest? That is my brother Ross, and my sister by love Olivia. I feel so blessed my brother choose such an amazing, precious, beautiful, loving, and kind girl to marry. She's become one of my dearest closest friends. Oh, and she's an artist! WAY.COOL! Can you tell I miss my family? We are counting down till July, when we will spend an entire week together in the mountains of North Carolina. I'm already stashing things away, to spoil my nephew silly. Pretty sure that's part of the job description of being the "favorite Aunt". (okay,so maybe I'm the only Aunt...for now. But, I'm never letting the "favorite" title go away!)
I took pictures of this adorable little girl this week. I know her Mommy is wanting to see a preview. So here's a few of my favorites. I love this age. Four. The year of magical moments, playing make believe, dressing up like fairy princess's, and sipping tea at many a tea parties. Oh, to be four, it's just grand! Clara was my little helper,showing Alyssa how I wanted her to pose. We had so much fun! :)

YOU.ARE.SO.GORGEOUS! Inside & out sis!

However much you miss me & my bung we miss you twice that amount.

Secretly I wanted you to stash yourself in mom's suitcase. You could've totally fit! ;D

So yeah....I'm stoked about family reunion!!!! I'll drive myself crazy if I keep thinking about it. The mote I think about it, the slower time passes by.

Love all the blurbs about the kiddos! (Ecspecially about Clar-bear's creative side!)

However, what's going on with goofy Jackson lately? :)
