Raining Petals

As soon as I stated my goal to blog more frequently, all of my resolve flew out the window. Like, super flew, very fast...and slammed the window on the way out. I had such good intentions. Sigh.

Lately, I have just really enjoyed my little family. I love being a mom to my two boys. I love seeing army men all set up in a battle in Carter's room. I love the intense snuggles that Cannon offers multiple times a day. I enjoy seeing Carter playing with his buddies and having big, long conversations about games and movies. I am enthralled watching Cannon changing right before my eyes from a baby to a little boy. His vocabulary is growing leaps and bounds and he knows how to do simple chores and he can sing songs and ask lots of questions. He just thrills me.

Tonight, we picked Josh up from the office and went to $5.00 movie day at our local theater. We watched Kung Fu Panda 3.

It was a cute show. Cannon got restless towards the end and I had to walk with him but I went in knowing that would happen. He isn't old enough yet to sit through an entire movie. However, it was fun just being together as a family and treating ourselves. I feel very fortunate that we are able to have such luxuries and the means to do fun things. 

I just want it to be known how grateful I am for my calm, simple life right now. Knock on wood right? I need it to be known I am not taking it for granted...I am grateful and aware of how blessed we are...I don't need any reminders or eye openers or tests. :) Pretty please?

 How sweet is that little face? Cannon and I went on a little date together to a local place called "Wiggle Worms". They have a room where you can paint and Cannon and I enjoyed it. He was so proud of his picture. 

Cannon is the biggest snuggler I have ever met. He loves to be cuddled into me as much as possible. 
He prefers to fall asleep on me when I will let him. I don't know that I have ever felt so much love from one little person...this kid just makes me feel sooooo loved. 

Carter doing his homework while listening to his favorite band, 21 Pilots. He is doing well in school and has made several new friends. He is a very social being and he thrives best when he has friends to play with. We usually have a boy over at our house several times a week to play and I don't mind a bit.
Carter hopes to go to a 21 Pilots concert this summer. I told him if he works hard in school and gets good grades then I would love for him to go...so we will see!

 Josh and I tried to take a selfie...this is the best we got. I like it. Josh is my rock and as crazy as I get in life and as complicated as I can make things...he hangs in there beside me and loves me. I hope someday I can be his equal match. I adore him.
