A Few of My Favorite Things ...

- going to bed when I'm tired into nice clean cold sheets and a cold pillow

- wearing a scarf on a cold day

- drinking a fresh cup (or two or three or twelve) of coffee when I get up in the morning. With just the right amount of Coffeemate and sugar.

- getting the mail

- Hearing Jacob and Jason come through the front door home from school or work. And standing at the top of the stairs with Joel, who wiggles and squeals in delight because he thinks they're chasing him up the stairs.

- sitting in the cold rink drinking my hot cup of Tim Hortons, watching Jacob play hockey

- putting on makeup

- feeding Joel food, when he bites the spoon and gets his little mess everywhere.

- having family dinners

- reading a really good book with the fireplace on, wrapped in a warm blanket ... with no kids around.

- making Joel laugh. He smiles easily -- he is such a friendly little guy at six months old. He is a delight.

- having friends over, playing games, listening to records, sitting on the couch and talking

- counting down the days till our best friends come to town.

- taking pictures, capturing wonderful moments, suspended now forever in time

- shopping with my mom

- planning our future

- eating ice cream with nerds in it

- loving with my whole heart
