October Photo Challenge - Day 18 - Made You Smile Today

...okay so first off...apparently photos of bananas in black and white...do not make people smile...or even comment for that matter - guessing those were not a hit among my readers eh?! Ah well, can't win 'em all! But I liked it...at least a whole lot more then I like to eat them!

Anywho....moving along....today's prompt...well that was hard because a lot of things made me smile today!!  But this moment, captured at a birthday party this afternoon, certainly had me grinning!

What I would have given for a birds eye view for this shot!!! 

Did any of you play with the parachute while in school?!  I remember it from way back! It was always a favourite thing for us kids and that seemed to ring true today!   Back then though, we used a beach ball but today there was a giant balloon!! The biggest balloon I have ever seen!  It was fantastic!!

But something today, that I did not smile about, was the fact that my hubby is sick!  He's never sick, never!  And last night he woke up feeling pretty bad and so he has spent most of the day in bed - other then when he mustered up the energy to come to the birthday part - but since he has spent most of the day in bed - I've had some pretty serious, "one on one" time with four special Littles that I love!

So what made me smile about each of them today....

I smile because of the baby, who loves her feet!  Not as much as I do, mind you, but it's adorable to watch her grab and pull and tug at them and all the while I know that all she wants to do is eat them!!!  Can you blame her?? Baby feet...nom, nom, nom!!!


I smile because of my boy and his new found love of colouring!!  Though throwing his crayons down into the basement seems to be more enjoyable then colouring, he still seems to like it - especially when Daddy colours with him!

I seriously had to smile because of my oldest two gals, as I asked to take a picture of them....and well...got the varied results you see here;

I smile because of my eldest.  Her sweet, innocent, joy filled approach to life is something we could all take lessons from!  And though she is certainly maturing and yes, there was not all smiles today between her and I (attitude already?!?!) she's a precious gem and I am learning more from her then I think she will ever learn from me!


And I smile because of my second little lady.  For her ability to strike a pose as soon as she sees the camera!  For her servant heart, pray-warrior attitude and love of hugs!!  She makes me smile because she loves to chatter so....but that chatter can often tire me out.....but...I know that she comes by it honestly...so what can you do?! Hahahah!


And like I said, today there were many things that made me smile!  No, not hubby being sick - we came home from the party and he went straight to bed...in fact he's still sleeping as I type this...and supper has long since been over and the kids in bed for over an hour...poor man!!  But over all is was a smile filled day - some reasons to smile today were captured by the camera...and others...they were just captured in my heart! ♥

Tomorrow - Day 19 - LETTERS



  1. Well, I fell a bit behind posting my pics, (got em just haven't posted yet) but for today I think I will just post a link to your post. This post made me smile. I love all these people. What nice photos.

  2. I like this post ((I talked about a birthday party today, too! ha!)) and your lovely little family. Sorry for Dave!! That's no fun...
    Scott is out hiking/camping this weekend - through Monday! for Scout stuff... leadership training, etc. I have a sneaky suspicion all his - go, go, go here of late will end him up in the same "camp" before too long. SICK! from pure exhaustion and lack of sleep.. This guy needs his sleep.

    Hey!! l liked your Nanner photos.. just hadn't had a chance to tell you so. Yet!! I could eat one right about now - with a slather of Peanut Butter and a drizzle of honey on a toasted english muffin!

  3. I liked your banana pictures too. I am just so behind on everything because after working all day I just fall asleep. And then wake up odd hours like now when it's a few minutes after 5 a.m. I didn't even get to take my evening meds because I was so soundly asleep!

    This is a lovely post. Kids almost always make me smile. Hope your husband is feeling better.

  4. Hahah! Thank you all for the banana comments! I know people are busy and don't actually expect comments on every post - but I appreciate your comments here now! ;)

  5. Yes, parachutes are fun! Joshua always enjoyed that at his early year's group. Hey, that's a big birthday party, I guess the whole class? ;)

    1. Hahah! Whole class?? More like a third of the school!! I can't imagine toddlers with a parachute - was it smaller then or were they able to manage one?? Either way, that'd be cute!! :D


Leave me a comment! I love hearing from you! ♥
