Three of my favorite people....
First my Noah - bright eyed, twinkle in his eyes and so sweet...sneaky at times but none the less sweet
Next Ezra - mischief maker, funny - always makes me laugh, does things at the most unexpected moments and keeps things lively.the biggest tightest hugs
Last but not least Keziah - the 'stubborn' one(not always a bad trait!!) likes things a certain way, a heart of gold and SUCH a giver, thinking always of others with her sweet drawings and cards.

Love how life can be so interesting, never gets boring with three kids that are so close in age..makes for a lot of fighting but hey that's normal right?!

So many memories and so many reminders that they are growing up, lately I have found myself saying almost daily...thank goodness I don't have a baby or a toddler...maybe its because of that reoccurring dream where I find out I am pregnant the month Kez goes into school full time...EEEKKK... (why I added that I dont' know...tangent) But yeah they are growing up and asking all sorts of questions...some I don't know that I have the 'right' answers to and others that maybe its just not the time to answer yet. I am enjoying the summer with them going to the beach, swimming lessons and just hanging out in a slower pace of life.

Can't imagine but I know the time will come all too quickly when they will move out and move onto a life of their own BUT for the time being I'll listen to the bickering, watch the silly dances, hear the whining and correct it, clean up the mess for the millionth time, receive my 100th picture and find something new to love on it, pray the goodnight prayers, watch the temper tantrums, listen to the stubborn cry, see the proud look on the face of a child who has passed a swimming lesson,watch one sibling comfort the other, laugh as one child not -so -sneakily is trying to spy on me, listen to the 50th rendition of "its the start of something new...'(High School Musical), answer as many why questions as I can AND kiss the goodnight kisses all the while cherishing the moments that we do have!!

So true, I find that my "little" ones are growing up way to fast for my liking. Soon they will be big ones with "little" ones of their own. I will cherish the time that they are still children and want me to hug and kiss then. Not looking forward to when they think Mom is too embarrassing to hang around with. Until then they will be getting lots of xxxooo's from me!
