Makin Smiles Monday

Sometimes as a mom I feel like I do a lot more frowning than I do smiling. Not that it's intentional that Kennedy spills her water everywhere, or Hope wipes her hands on her shirt after putting glitter glue on her hands or that Taylor will ask some question that requires me looking something up on google because she has proved more than once that I am not smarter than a fourth grader! {side-note...what did our momma's do without google? have mercy!}

When they were little-little, that was my goal, all make them smile. And it was easy because all it required was an up most annoying voice, a little bear and a tickle, tickle, tickle. They just sat in their little bouncy seats with their toothless grins and no matter what I did...I was the funniest thing they had ever seen!

Such things don't work anymore. {wink}

Now...they have to see their momma doing something like this to even THINK she is funny:

But when they saw this, running smack dab into a tree? Oh ya, that was funny.

Or hearing their little sister squeal in delight. Rather than squeal in anger! That made everyone smile.

But this....The Snow Blob. It made ME smile. This is how we role in the south. Not snow men, snow blobs.

I'm determined to have more smiles than frowns in our lives. Smiles are good for the soul. So what made you smile this weekend? Make me smile...It's Monday.

It made me smile to have one more day with my family! Looks like you all had loads of fun in the snow:)

The snow blob made me smile. That's what I would do, though hubby redeems our attempts by making awesome snowmen.

Looks like fun. I am enjoying this snow so much!

I've always had a snow blob! I thought I was just snowman challanged. Great to see I'm not the only one.

Hey I have a visual mystery contest going on over at my blog this week. Wanna come see?

By the way,
Your blog and facebook post always make me smile. It makes me want to know you in person not just over the computer.

Love ya

Hi there, Nicki,

This is my first visit to your blog--(at least I'm pretty sure it is...)I'm over here from Shari's blog.

Looks like you had a close call but a fun time with the recent snow fall! Thanks for the smiles.
