The Thing I Love Most About Blogging...

-Is going back and reading about past blog posts. I love to sit here and look at my kids' birthday parties pics, our adventures together and seeing their (sometimes) smiling faces when I ask to take their picture.
I love seeing how their faces change from year to year, especially Aaron{since he's my baby}.

I know I'll treasure all these memories when I am older and our house is no longer filled with the sounds of little kids playing Nerf Darts in my living room. Or the sounds of laughter coming from tween boys in the middle of a "slumber" party; or the squeals of glee when I announce to the boys that I am making them chocolate shakes for family night and yes, we can have a picnic in the living room and watch movies all night. And the nights we get to go trick or treating and of coming home and watching nieces and nephews, friends and my kids swapping their sugar loot.

I love looking at pics of myself when I was younger and could run around with my kids without feeling winded and constantly reaching for my inhaler. I love the times I taught the kids how to ride their bikes without training wheels, of skating parties with giggling girls, of laser tag parties with sweaty boys....
yes sometimes the hustle and bustle of life takes it's toll and crankiness and frustration set in. But most of the time, I go to bed with a smile on my face...and I remember...
