Meet Meg's "Kids"

Meet Meg's "Kids"!

For months now, Miss Meg has had an increasing pile of "kids" beside her pillow.  The pile shown in these pictures is *nothing* compared to some days, when it can be twice or three times as big!  While rather an eclectic mix of offspring (a turtle, a few dinosaurs, a Friesian bull and a aeroplane for example), Meg is the perfect doting mother and loves them all!  A couple of times per day, she'll whisk away to the bedroom to play with them, talk to them...etc.  When running errands she often tells me: "I need to go home, my kids are missing me".  Sweet!  We have even caught her scrubbing a few dirty dinosaur kids with her own toothbrush!  This girl is a hoot and keeps us in stitches with her exuberant personality and funny sayings and doings.

Dum-Dum Dee-Dum!

Meg The "Bride"

A couple of weeks ago, Meg and I dressed up as "brides". It was so much fun!  I'll admit I was a little nervous to try on my dress, as I figured that it probably wouldn't fit me anymore...but, it DID!  I was more than a little pleased - especially concering that I've had three more children since then! I get that my stripy shirt looks *very* silly underneath, but my dress isn't really what I'd be comfortable wearing now and so thought it was best worn this way! :)  It was so sweet to see Meg enjoying dressing up; I used to do the very same thing when I was a little girl.  I'd pop my mothers underskirts/slips over my clothes, pop one on my head as a "veil" and off I'd go!

Okay, so I just realized that I have not posted in an awfully long time! Fear not, I have not fallen off the face of the earth, but have just been super busy! I know, I know, I ALWAYS say that, right?!?? In the evening once the kids are in bed, chores done (hahahaha!) and I actually have some quiet time, I have been either busy writing out letters/cards/crafting/extra Bible reading or listening to sermons with my hubby. I am working on a few posts, and in particular, I am working on Abigail's birth story, which I figured was about due, now that our little miss is EIGHT months old! Thanks to "Diana J" who gave me a push on that one. ;)

So, until then I thought you might like a cute baby picture
...because, who doesn't love cute baby pictures? :)
