Well I wouldn't be honest if I made it seem like our life out here in Texas didn't come with its ups AND downs. It's easy to post about all the cute, funny, interesting, uplifting, etc. things, but I've found that it's hard to find them when you aren't having such a good day, week, month... Anyway what I'm getting at is I've had a rough couple of weeks what with getting into the uncomfortable state of pregnancy, Kimball being very stressed due to his looming board exams, and missing friends and family back in Utah, that I've taken pictures that I intended to post as the days went by but never did. It's been my experience out here that some days are just like that sometimes, you may even have a couple of them in a row, and most of the time it helps to just take pleasure in the small things that happen each day that make you smile...I've taken pictures of a few of these things, I hope you enjoy them...feel free to comment on your favorite one and throw in some advice on how to deal with bad days while your at it!
Mya and Kirby watching "Jungle Book" together, a favorite for both of them.
Kimball finally got a propane grill! Now he wants to cook out every day, a welcome break for me!
Our friend Bradley came to play and as usual digs the high heels out of the bottom of the toy box and insists on wearing them until he goes home...
I snuck up on Mya while she was watching a movie, and I couldn't get over the serious look on her face or the finger on her chin as if she was watching something deeply moving.
Kimball and I were in the kitchen talking and stopped to notice Mya had climbed up on the recliner and started reading a book to herself...she would jibber jabber in her own language then turn the page, all the way until the end of the story.
If only we could all learn to stop and smell the roses sometimes....
