I made it! Yay!

Today we decorated the tree. Watching my kids laugh and just enjoy themselves reminded me of all the things I have to be thankful in my life.
Yes, there are times that life with 5 kids is chaotic and hectic. Times when they don’t get along and times when I want to pull my hair out, but then there are these moments. These times that I know I will treasure when they’re gone and the hectic times are a long lost memory. Today, I am thankful that I get to be a part of all of this. That I have been given the honour of being their mother. That I have this amazing partner to ride this crazy,incredibly amazing ride with.

I’m surrounded by love, and I am loved.
I’m lucky.

Day 29

Quiet days.

With my older two over at their aunt’s house it gave Hubby and I time with just our younger three. We went out to get some groceries, and took in a walk-in special at the pizza store.  It was a relaxed, laid back days. In a house that can be hectic and crazy, it’s nice to have those days every now & then.
