We finally got real snow at our house. Not the icy stuff, or just the dry that only sticks to vehicles, real actual go out and play snow! And Jackson is at the perfect age for his first actual go out and play snow! So, that's just what we did on Monday! Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the day. I also took some super cute videos that I'll have to figure out how to upload and share!
He wasn't too sure about all the layering, but he went with it!
He instantly knew how to make snowballs! Seriously, is that a boy thing??
And this is the sweet face I saw all day!! He loved every single second of being outside in the snow! Makes me sad that I don't get to see it all day everyday! :(
side note... I had to call in to work, because apparently Saline County was as south as the snow went! Malvern got nothing, I mean, NOT-A-THING, nothing!

Warm Fuzzies!

I don't know if anyone really reads my blog or not....well, I mean I know a handful of my friends do and I read their blogs too!
-------> check out some good peeps to your right.

Anyway, one of the blogs I read and keep up with is Kelly's Korner. If you read anyone's blog, then most likely you've at least seen the icon link to Kelly's blog. She's good southern folk, from Arkansas, with a precious baby girl and a heartwarming story. Her blog is followed by thousands! And she does this fun thing by linking blogs through a certain topic. I think she does this weekly. I click on and read a few, but I never participate.....I'm not that good of a blogger. :) Moving along..... Today, or maybe she posted it last night, she chose the topic "Simple Pleasures". Well, today I'm participating, I like this topic.

So, all that to say, "Here's my list of simple pleasures"
