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♥

Smile box photo creation:)

"At the end of our lives we will not remember how much money we made... or how many things we possessed. What will come back to us in a brilliant and blinding light will be… the quality of the relationships we formed with those we loved; our family, our partners, our children and our friends." ~ LillyAnn (2001)

"As human beings, our job in life is to help people realize how rare and valuable each one of us really is, that each of us has something that no one else has—or ever will have—something inside that is unique to all time. It's our job to encourage each other to discover that uniqueness and to provide ways of developing its expression." Fred Rogers

2012 Autumn, back to school and big changes...

2012 Autumn, back to school and big changes...

The kids are heading to a new school, embarking on a promising new year of learning and growing.  We had an extremely busy summer with the purchase of our beautiful new home in the country.  The kids feel like we moved into the forest or a park with all space and mature trees.  We feel so very blessed... words can't express how happy and content we are here.   We have much to be thankful for heading into the season of Thanksgiving♥
Where we love is home
Home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.
As always, back to school remains ever bitter-sweet as I miss my sweet babes as they go off on their own adventures.  We enjoyed the summer reading program at the library and always had volumes to read under our shady trees.  Autumn is almost upon us once again and I like to pack a short poem as a small piece of home to take with them when they go to school.
Autumn Bird Song
Over the housetops,
Over the trees,
Winging their way
In a stiff fall breeze.

A flock of birds
Is flying along
Southward, for winter,
Singing a song.

Singing a song
They all like to sing,
"We'll see you again
When it's spring, spring, spring."
Autumn Wind
When autumn wind goes running
It does some magic things.
It gives the shadows dancing shoes,
It gives the bright leaves wings -
When autumn wind goes running.

It curls the bonfire's tail of smoke
And shares a little whispered joke
With cornstalks who delight to prattle,
It turns a seed pod into a rattle -
When autumn wind goes running.

An Autumn Greeting

"Come," said the Wind to the Leaves one day.
"Come over the meadow and we will play.
Put on your dresses of red and gold.
For summer is gone and the days grow cold."
Microsoft stock photo, love it♥
