Favorite's on this Friday

Oh my goodness... is he not the cutest thing you've ever seen?  
Well he came in my mail yesterday!
A few weeks back I participated in a "Mug Swap" over with Kim.
 We had to buy a mug_ send it to someone_ then we got a mug in return from 
someone special. Laura you were that someone special...thank you. 
She got him from ModCloth.. and girl you did way too much! 
I love him.. he is adorable..thank you.

Now for all my insta-gram pictures..
I also received this in the mail at the beginning of the week..I know.. go figure.
Two treats in 1 week...Wha?
I have felt horrible from a cold this week and so this was a sure pick-me-upper.
A friend just decided to bless me with this b/c she knew how much I adore aprons...
Bless me she did... Jade, thank you. 
I could eat the polka dots...

This girl I can't keep upright. She is forever doing handstands or climbing on the furniture. 
She freaks me out though, because it seriously looks like she's going to hit the wall with her head right before she flips upside down..
I try not to watch and just peek every now & again.

Speaking of middle child this made me smile as I flipped through her bible. 
Not sure when she wrote this or what prompted it, but it definitely made me smile.

Youngest sure has enjoyed these popsicles this Summer.
They have helped us to make it through the unbearable hot days.
Being really cheap has helped too. :)
We will soon say so long to them until next Summer..
Because Fall is coming and that makes me want to do a happy dance.

This is what the sky looked like the morning of the first drop off to school. I was reminded that 
 "the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. 
  Whoever has ears, let them hear." Matt 13:43

I found comfort in this sky and these words...

And this boy and his blues melt my heart. I finally convinced him to wear
real shorts (real shorts are like khaki's or something other than sport related clothes)
to school yesterday. On one hand, I love that he doesn't care to look all spiffy
b/c that means he's not interested in the girls yet.
But sometimes I would like to see him in something other than Under Armor..just sayin'.
We've learned to compromise and on Sunday's or family events, .. 
he has to wear what I pick out. Until then I guess I'm just going to grin and bear it. 

Linking up with Rachel for

& Jeannett for 

Have a great weekend!
