We've had lots of things to celebrate around here these days.
This girl hokey-pokeyed her way into her third year, with a Pink Party.
Sometimes we celebrate the fact that we play princesses all day.
Celebrate colour and daily opportunities to create art? Why not!
We celebrate each loose tooth this kid has, even though at the moment he looks like Nanny McPhee when he smiles (with one snaggle-tooth hanging over his lip). It's hilarious and adorable.
Perhaps our biggest reason to celebrate? Margot had her annual cardiology check-up. Although her mitral valve continues to be wonky (that's the technical term, don't you know), it's not worse. The best words of the day were when her cardiologist said, "See you when you're five, Margot!"
I'm celebrating the fading of my addiction to spending time on the internet. I'm getting stuff done, and I don't feel like sharing every detail of it on my blog. I'm knitting and painting my kitchen and planning my garden and reading about root cellars.
Most of all, I'm remembering how rich my life was before Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and blogging took over my time. I'm playing Yahtzee with my kids in the evenings, writing letters to people I know and love, and falling asleep on the couch with a book on my chest.
You may be seeing a bit less of me around here these days.
I'm just too busy celebrating!
