Ten Things to Smile About This Month

It is the last Tuesday of the month which means it is time for my favorite post, 10 Things to Smile About this Month.  I started the meme several years ago after a really hard month, when I just need to pause and look for something good.  Join me each month and share 10 things (big or small) that made you smile.

8. My hair - when I actually take the time to do it

10. Those moments when my kids really get along
What made you smile this month?


  1. first off, I plan on linking up later this week... :). I couldn't bring myself to do it today... ha!
    Second off, looks like a really good month! Alex has wide feet... no bueno. I have the exact opposite. haha. Maybe she and I can share some with the other and have perfect feet... lol :)
    I noticed you guys have been taking a lot of family photos together... Eric take them? and take them just because?

    1. I bought a little gator tri-pod for my phone. It is cool as it can wrap around things and is actually magnetic. For those Sunday shots, I just stick it to the car and we take the picture.

  2. That looks like a perfectly lovely month. And yes! The rain was amazing!

  3. What a great month! #4 was my FAVORITE. Such a cute picture!

  4. So fun! How is Ryder liking his new bed? Your hair is definitely gorgeous!

    1. He is loving it and luckily doing great with the ladder, I worried about that, especially when waking up in the morning if was sleepy, but it has been fine.

  5. Sounds like you had an amazing month! Amazing pictures. I especially like the super cute little newborn you photographed.
