embrace the ordinary // sixteen & seventeen

Sixteen/52 - Throwback to Easter

Linus. 2. Was the most gentle when it came to cascarones, is obviously left-handed, has the softest hair on his sweet little head.
Bigfoot. Almost 4. Was pretty rough with the cascarones and absolutely loved cracking them on everyone's heads (most especially Dada's and Papa's), would rather live outside during daylight hours, is pretty stellar when it comes to all things sports.

Seventeen/52 - Weekend Getaway

Bigfoot. Almost 4. Has taken to wearing baseball hats, is a social butterfly who loves seeing his friends every chance he gets, when asking what's for dinner and I told him PB and Honey with veggie sticks (I'm sick :P) he asked, "What vegetable, mama? I want a vegetable, mama. mm..Broccoli?"
Linus. 2. Loves horses and carried this little horse around the entire weekend, loves looking for snails and always comes back with a handful of the tiniest little snails on any given play day, likes to sing and bob his head while doing it.
These brothers. Little by little the taunting from the older or younger is lessening, more and more they are chatting and cracking themselves up, and daily are teaching me about what it means to love.

Linking up with Gina for Embrace the Ordinary and Aimee for Finding Beauty because, right now, this is all I have to embrace in the form of a post - my little ordinary and my bits of beautiful. I've had so many posts swirling in my head and heart but haven't found the time nor brain power to type them out. I'm praying for His Time and for now, praying I get over this sickness that hit me on Friday. Also praying that no one else gets this because it comes with a pretty yucky cough. We all know how tough a junky cough can be with the little people and with the daddy's too ;) so if you would join me in this prayer I'd be so grateful!

  1. What beautiful photos! That first one with the confetti is especially eye-catching!
    My boys are just about the same ages and I'm finding that they are bickering less and less lately too! I love seeing their little heads together, conspiring and imagining.

    1. Thank you! The confetti was so fun! and it's so beautiful about our boys isn't it! I find my youngest misses my oldest so. much! when he's away and gets the *most* excited when he returns. Full on running, yelling his name repeatedly, and hugging. It's the sweetest thing!

    1. Thank you, Theresa! So for so good in the sick department! Thank you, Lord! I'm nearing 100% and no one else seemed to have caught it! Thank goodness! A miserable cough is never fun in littles.

    1. Right, Colleen! I've always done so with a journal since I was young. I just couldn't wait to journal my life away. And then, since my husband encouraged me to start a blog, there's sort of a different process to it all that I wish I didn't let deter me! God's grace, His timing, and all is well. Hugs to you, Colleen!

    Are you feeling better now? I hope so. We suffered the ick that came with a bad cough. Some of us still have a lingering cough from it!

    1. Yay! Thanks, Gina! And YES! I am feeling better! Thank goodness! Somehow the rest of the house managed to avoid it so far. I'm so thankful! The cough was pretty miserable for me, can't imagine if the younger ones caught it!
