On My Mind This Tuesday:

cute idea for photos using glitter

Hello all my new blogger friends!

Elisabeth helped me pick out these glitter photos. She likes to sit on my lap and look at pinterest...no joke. Of course we look at Disney Princesses and mermaids...not the random photos floating around.

THIS is her favorite image.

I am sure you have seen me write it before and it won't be the last...but I sure am thankful for this daughter of mine. She talks NON STOP! I really have no one to blame but my self...I am the same way. I am so thankful that she talks my ear through breakfast, while I am trying to write emails, while I am on the phone, while I am reading, while I am trying to talk to hubs, when she lays in bed at night and I am trying to leave her bedroom and she says..."I have to tell you somtin' " I wouldn't have it any other way because I know she will be gone and before I know it...and I will wish for that time back.

I am encouraging all you parents out there to take the time and talk to you kiddos, even if you are busy.

p.s. Jude has been crawling around the house acting like a puppy...so funny

p.s.s. Dear hubs, I miss you. Could you hurry home?

ok, LOVE the glitter goodies.
AND wonderful reminder! my kiddo doesn't talk very well yet. he does understand everything i say, so i have (mostly) one sided conversations with him. HE LOVES IT. and it is good for me to remember to speak to his heart, whether or not he can talk back to me.

love ya!

Such a good reminder. : )

I have to tell you that I am somewhat a glitter-phobe. It may stem back to my 1st grade teaching days. : )

that glitter pictures totally jogged my memory of some picture i took in India... when we would go to the villages they would always give us a necklace of flowers and the kids would throw or blow confetti or glitter on us to welcome us. the pictures of some of the glitter blowing were hilarious...especially since alot of it stuck to people since it was so hot, lol.
beautiful images and beautiful post. I thank God for the grace reading things like this before I have children because i will always have it in my spirit for when i do.

Girl. these pics made my heart flutter! For reals. My hubs calls me GG...short for glitter girl. lol. It shows up everywhere and in the most unlikely places...its kinda become my signature. My daughters is bobby pins. Mine is glitter. lol. We leave them everywhere we go. The men in our church laugh now that they know us cuz the very first time we ever came to our church, my hubs had glitter on his face the entire time he was preaching..(he didn't realize this of course... that was several Novembers ago..lots of crafting going on in November!) Now they don't think a thing of it when we are sparkling.
And love those chatterbox daughters.. they make life so full of fun stuff. :) I giggled at her favorite pic on Pinterest. too funny :)

Two days ago I wore a glittered shirt. As I continue to brush glitter from the face of my 4 mo. old with a chattering talker girl by my side your post is a gentle reminder!

God Bless!

LOVE that 1st pic

My toddler can't talk yet, but I do try to take the time to really "play" with him and give him attention everyday, no matter how busy I am! I already can't believe how big he is, it's crazy how fast time goes by!

Beautiful photos by the way!

Lori said...

Jami said...
