The Little Things Thursdays: #21

Welcome to The Little Things Thursday!! 

If you are new to our link-up, we like to take a minute to look back on the little things that brightened our week. So often we get busy and forget all of the things that we enjoy as we go through our daily lives. This is an opportunity to stop, remember, and enjoy those things! Nothing is too fact, the smaller the better! That's the whole point! If you have a blog, link-up below. If you don't blog, I'd love for you to participate by leaving a comment. Ready?

1. It Grates!
Today I discovered how to use the grate setting on my food processor. Why did I wait so long?! I had about 16 carrots to grate and the idea of grating them by hand seemed...well, boring. The food processor made quick work of it. And it was fun. Hehe! Yeah, I know I'm a little nutty...

2. Happy Birthday, Ma!
We took the kids over to my in-laws tonight to celebrate Ma's birthday. Pizza, cake, and ice cream! The kids are always so delighted to get out of the house, and we are always so grateful that Sean's parents let us invade their house. We had a great time tonight! Happy birthday, Ma! 

3. Cousins
I snapped this photo tonight while we were at Sean's parents house. Cousin Marissa was reading a book to Ellie. So sweet! I really appreciate that Marissa took the time to help Ellie with one of her favorite activities. Ellie was enraptured with her older cousin.

4. Beth
This photo of Beth and Ellie is a year old (I forgot to take one today), but adorable nonetheless. Beth has been coming to help me for a few hours almost every week for over a year. This week she is spending two full days at our house helping me with the kids while I tackle a massive project: baking all of the desserts for a wedding. I'd be lost without her! And so would Ellie. Beth is Ellie's best friend! True friends are hard to come by. Thanks for being amazing, Beth!

5. Please Remember to Vote for Us!
We have been everywhere from 6th place to 2nd place and then back to 6th place in the Top 25 Moms of Multiples Blogging Contest! It's crazy competitive this year! Please don't forget to vote for "A Beautiful Ruckus!"
