Mother's Song (A Traditional Lullaby)

My heart is like a fountain true
that flows and flows with love to you
as chirps the lark unto the tree
so chirps my pretty babe to me

There is not a rose wherever I seek
as comely as my baby's cheek
there's not a comb of honey bee
so full of sweets as babe to me

There's not a star that shines on high
is brighter than my baby's eye
There's not a boat upon the sea
can dance as baby does to me

No silk was ever spun so fine
as is the hair of baby mine
My baby smells more sweet to me
than smells in spring the elder tree

A little fish swims in the well
So in my heart does baby dwell
A little flower blows on the tree
My baby is the flower to me

Ten thousand parks where deer do run
Ten thousand roses in the sun
Ten thousand pearls beneath the sea
my babe more precious is to me.

I’m living Hands Free

I want to make memories,
Not to-do lists.
I want to feel the squeeze of my child’s arms,
Not the pressure of over-commitment.
I want to get lost in conversation with the people I love,
Not consumed by a sea of unimportant emails.
I want to be overwhelmed by sunsets that give me hope,
Not by overloaded agendas that steal my joy.
I want the noise of my life to be a mixture of laughter and gratitude,
Not the intrusive buzz of cell phones and text messages.
I am letting go of distraction & perfection
To live a more simple life consisting of what really matters.
I’m living Hands Free.

The joy of your first year♥



 Covered in cake and icing, your smile stretched ear to ear.
A single candle celebrates, the joy of your first year.

We sing Happy Birthday Deanna, you play midst wrap and bows.
We marvel at how you touched our lives, just one year ago.

      Your three brothers watchful over you, giving hugs and kisses as you smile.       Delighting in your giggles and playfulness, every second worth all the while.

I remember the first time I held you, kissed your head and whispered your name.
You've changed our lives forever, our hearts will never be the same.

As a child you'll love this day, for all the sweets and presents too.
As a family we'll love your day, for the gift we got was you.

Each year we'll add another candle, so proud to see you grow.
But always with the memory, of your first day long ago.

New Baby, New Journey...


Every baby is born into a new family... for that family is forever altered and forever changed by the miracle of life:)  I picked up a lovely new nature journal at Mariposa Market today. We're getting so excited for the new adventures we'll have with the new baby this spring.  It goes well with the fantastic new jogging stroller we picked up with big bicycle wheels;)  Wherever the boys wish us to explore and discover with the new baby... we'll be up to the challenge and have a journal to record our journey in:)

Changing Seasons♥

 School is in full swing and the kids are enjoying riding the bus from our country home.  We were worried;)  Fall was beautiful.... I say was because all the leaves have fallen now and there is often a crispness in the air that tells you snow is coming.  Here are a couple of shots of our back yard when fall was in bloom:)
 This is a picture of my little family on our front steps♥  We're expecting and in the spring we won't fit on the steps for a photo like this... I could get our youngest to hold the new baby for the picture... if he'll stay still:D  Easter photo planning perhaps;)
 We've started decorating for the holiday season and are still counting our blessings with that Thanksgiving feeling still in our hearts.  Here we see a couple of pictures of our mantel being decorated.
 Now that we've decorated the tree and have hung the stockings by the chimney with care... it's time to take more photos and continue to count our blessings... my favourite holiday season has begun and we are truly blessed♥
