LOOK AT THIS CUTE PIC OF MY 2 BOYS
Everyday when Jeremy gets home from work (and it is not dinner time yet) he and Nicholas have this "very boy" tradition where they raid the refrigerator of any and all leftovers (strait from the fridge....no warming these leftovers up....eating it cold, directly from the tupperware with a fork). Nicholas looks so funny....he is always putting on a show and bringing smiles to our faces
LOOK AT THIS PIC
WHAT'S DIFFERENT IN THIS NEXT PIC?

SOME MORE ACTIVITIES
MADISON AND HER FRIEND AVA HANGING OUT PLAYING "CUPS"
(Videographer: Savannah Lustig)
MADISON TAKING PICTURES OF HERSELF
(This DOES happen almost daily.....she is such a photographer. She has her camera ALWAYS nearby to capture a moment....even her own...the trendy term for these self portraits is "selfies"
(she is just so beautiful)
SPECIAL BREAKFAST FOR THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL
Crescent Sausage Casserole....a family favorite. I TOTALLY forgot to snap the pic before we ate!! Not as pretty now that we ate off of it......but the spicy sausage was SO YUMMY!!
MY SPECIAL BREAKFAST FOR THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL
I love my "Triple (shot) Venti Skinny White Mocha....with Whip cream" (of course...the whip offsets the non-fat)
I must admit that I have a skinny white mocha EVERY morning. My sweet love, Jeremy makes me one with our espresso machine. They are so good!! He always puts it in a "world's Best Dad" mug? Huh....Weird
When Jeremy goes into work early.....I drive like a crazy person up to Starbucks and grab one before prayer time. It just makes me so happy in the morning!
Well, those are some of the things that are great about my life! My family and all of our little quirks.
Oh...I did not mention anything specific about Savannah....she is amazing and she is always in the middle of all of the family action, sporting a HUGE smile on her bright and sweet face. She is just so joyful!!
(Here are a couple of typical Savannah moments....these snapshots pretty much define Savannah)
There is Savannah pretending to be a mannequin at Old Navy with her friend, Kileigh
There is Savannah pretending to eat a giant burger plastered outside on a window of a restaurant....Nicholas is there too, but it was Savannah who thought that it would be a good idea to run up to it and "fake" eat it!!
This is Savannah getting out of the car to go into her sweet friend Kileigh's house, for Kileigh's 11th birthday party.....Before she got out of the car, she was crying a little (trying to unsuccessfully hold back her precious little tears) because she was nervous about being around all of the other girls......Savannah is just such a jovial girl!! She is an absolute ham!! BUT there is a side of Savannah that not many people see......her little heart is so very fragile and she is so shy in crowds of kids.
Savannah and I said a prayer that Jesus would comfort her and allow her to enjoy the party and maybe even meet a new friend (she was afraid that she would not know the other girls) I didn't walk her in, as we both know that, that makes her cry.......I just prayed as I drove away, knowing that she was walking in, so unsure and nervous.....a mommy's heart is heavy as she drives away leaving her little one who is worried.
"Please Lord Jesus, deliver my little Savannah from this nervousness that she is feeling, so that she can relax, enjoy herself, and just be a carefree little girl"
Guess what, she had a fabulous time!! She knew almost all of the other girls at the party and she even shared a sweet conversation with another little girl that she would like to invite over to play sometime! Our Lord is so incredible!
Well, there are all of my first loves!! I feel like the luckiest girl in the world......Ya know, I think that I just might be!!
