Simple Pleasures

As a mum sometimes my days are so busy and even a little stressful. As I go about my day, I like to try and enjoy the simple things of life. It might be something my boys do or some kind of yummy treat or just whatever comes my way! Since Ethan doesn't really talk very much, when he does say something or says something new it causes a lot of excitement around here! One of his latest passions is hotdogs, I was very happy recently to find gluten free, perservative free hotdogs at our grocery store. He absolutely loves them! The other day I found some breakfast sausage links that were also all natural. We cooked them up for breakfast and Ethan sat up at the breakfast bar and he looked at them and started to say baby, baby, baby hotdogs :)

Micha has figured how to get out of his crib at night. So we had a few nights of him in and out, in and out of the crib and his bedroom. On Saturday night, we put him back in again and he never came out, so we were glad about that! I always check on the boys before I go to bed, to make sure they have their blankets over them! I walked into the bedroom to find Micah laying on the floor right beside Ethan's bed fast asleep, he had all his blankets righ there! He looked so snuggly and warm! I decided to let him sleep there, he slept until 5am when I heard his little footsteps so I went in and put him back into his crib with his blanket and he went back to sleep :) They were having their own little slumber party!

I love this time of year as the grocery store always has some kind of different foods. The other day I found a new treat for me at the grocery store, it is called Chai Nog! Anyway once the boys are in bed, I make myself a cup of this Chai nog and last night I really splurged and put some whipped cream and nutmeg on top.......hhmmmm delicious!!

I think it is good to stop and enjoy the simple pleasures of life, they give us joy, refreshment and sometimes just a that little bit of encouragement to keep going!
