The Little Things Thursdays: #25

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. Painted Toes
I got the crazy idea to paint some little toenails this week...and it actually worked! The girls smudged them a little bit, but for the most part left their toes alone. It probably helps that I had some quick-drying spray and spritzed their toes well after the pink nail polish went on!

2. The Boys
The boys, of course, were highly curious about the toenail painting and wanted theirs spruced up as well. I went ahead and "painted" theirs (with the lid still on) and that seemed to satisfy them. And just like the girls, they wanted their photos taken too. Lol! I wonder how long I'll be able to pretend to paint their nails without them catching on....

3. Mommy's New Glasses
I've been putting off having my eyes checked for a good long while. I didn't think I had any issues, but I guess my eyes have changed since having the kids. I'm now far-sighted. Thankfully, I only have to wear the glasses for reading and computer work for the time being. It also turns out that my face is so narrow that I have to wear kid glasses. The adult ones are way too wide. Ha! 

4. Backyard Playset
I'm BEYOND excited about our new-to-us backyard playset! Crystal, a friend of Sean's from college, had a big playset in her backyard that her daughter outgrew. She offered it to us and even delivered it. It just arrived this evening, and I can't wait to get out there with the kids to break it in! I'm delighted to have something for them to play on now! Pictures to come!!

5. Murder Mystery by Candlelight
We had a major storm roll through on Sunday night that knocked out our power just before 8pm. Ellie immediately exclaimed, "Oh, MY!" It was hilarious! The downside was that we didn't get power back until the wee hours of the next morning. Sean and I got the kids in bed by flashlight and then spent the evening reading by candlelight. He read John Piper's "Desiring God," and I read one of my murder mysteries. Interesting choice given the ambiance, right?
