The heart is full right now. As in, full to the brim overflowing, laugh-and-cry-at-any-given-moment kinda full.
I'll start with our North Pole breakfast. Simple joy. I woke the girls up for an extra special weekend kickoff. Because the weekend begins on Friday around here.
Our time around the table with snow-dusted donuts, hot cocoa with marshmallows, and Christmas jammies created the beautiful snowball effect that took on more gusto of merry and cheer.
I mean after all, that's what weekends are for.
And my babies delivered.
More powdered sugar, please. We're adding "snow" to anything we possible can.
Weekends are for pajama days.
Since the much anticipated new soft, cozy treasures were received, they only came off little bodies with much pleading and reasoning.
This weekend was for celebrating little ones growing up, becoming little people, making plans and dreaming dreams.
First up, Miss Molly.
And these babies know how to partay.
This baby feels like he's mine, a treasure prayed for and welcomed into this world with immense gratitude and joy. We happily celebrated as we kept saying how we just couldn't believe he was already 5 years old. How does this happen?
But here's the best part of my weekend. Enter box of tissues and the ugly cry for mama.
This moment is powerful. This moment is His gift to this mama's heart that He sees her, hears her heart cries brought as an offering, her blessing in an unexpected moment.
I am grateful.
And this weekend, those tender moments continued.
We cuddled and read books, waiting for our new favorite breakfast to be ready.
Enter goodness on a platter. Cinnamon Roll Pancakes.
recipe is super easy and you can even cheat with some Bisquick.
Because weekends are for new recipes and full bellies.
A few mamas got together for a little night of dinner and ballet on campus, treated and blessed by a lovely mama herself, Lori.
The weekend was for the taking and we happily partook of His goodness at hand. The week ahead promises bundled babies, nights sipping coffee and reading books to eager hearts, parties and gatherings because we love each other's company.
Thank you weekend and hello to you, week to come.
