I love this post! So fun to see you through your kids' eyes. Although I'm a little surprised that you like to sit and stare out the front window to relax :)

I THINK THAT'S A FABULOUS IDEA.
I'M DOING IT NEXT YEAR, SO REPOST SO I'LL REMEMBER.
For the record, I stare out the window too. Problem is the view is not nearly as pretty as it used to be.
