Before we get started, I wanted to share a fantastic photo from my beautiful and creative friend Tekeal, all the way from Bern, Switzerland. I met Tekeal via email last December, when we were hosting our Home For Christmas Giveaway. My sweet friend from the other side of the globe shares my passion for orphans on Reece's Rainbow and is years ahead of me on this journey of parenting a child with special needs. She writes beautifully on her blog Livia the Great, and I am determined to meet up with her some day... I have a world wide tour planned when I retire and Switzerland is definitely one of my stops;)
Tekeal and her daughter were supposed to appear in my photo montage the other day, but poor Livia was sick with pneumonia, and they were entertaining house guests...her adorable photo came too late to my inbox, but I could not resist posting it here today- I LOVE IT!
"Go ahead and mock my style, but do not mock my daughter who sports something extra!!"
*Hugs to you friend, and to the beautiful Livia as well:)
On to Jack and Lily...
These two are a riot to watch lately. For some reason Jackson's crazy antics just send Lily into hysterics, even if it's just a game of peekaboo.
The other day he was just hitting an inflatable ball on his head and making a goofy expression, and Lily was in stitches. Melt.my.heart.
There's a definite bond between my two youngest, and I can't wait to see how that plays out as they grow older together.
My favoritest face- the crinkly eyed smile.
We finally got Lily signing "more" on video. Please ignore her just-woke-up bedhead look, as well as the groceries on the floor around her. I just got home from shopping and she was having a blast with all the empty bags...until she spied me munching on a cookie. Girlfriend knows how to get what she wants, as she quickly started yelling "MO MO MO" and pummeling her little fists together.
Needless to say, she got the cookie.
And now for our giveaway!
I found Stella Bella Boutique through another blog a few months ago. I bought my mom the sweetest pair of pink mum earrings for Mother's Day and immediately bookmarked the etsy shop for future shopping. I love just about everything there, especially these darling vintage inspired doily earrings.
One lucky commenter will receive these sweet earrings by leaving a comment here today. Random.org will pick a winner at midnight, and tomorrow I'll be back to let you know who it is!
Just to make things fun, share your favorite Christmas song. I KNOW it's July- but in our home that means Pandora is set to Bing Crosby Christmas until December. Well, maybe we might take a break now and then for Disney tunes or Dario Marianelli, but Bing will be belting out his stuff for many months to come:) So just tell me your fav' and don't forget to have a...
