I'm in OVER my head (and LOVE it)...!

Have you ever stopped to think about the amazing moments that make up your life? Me too! My favorite time to reflect is at night ...
The house is all quiet and the silence creates the perfect atmosphere for instant replay!

Last night, I had quite a show running across the stage of my mind. Would you like a glimpse?! Action on the set - Tape rolling:

The show begins with:
"Dear Life, ... I'm in over my head and I LOVE it!"
A night to celebrate being alive! Wendy, Kade, Lauren and Kaleb
April 14, 2009 - AKA: My birthday :)

Happy Birthday with mud pie ...

Kade, Kaleb and Lauren
(Dig in!!)

April Rhineheart and Wendy Christensen
(Thanks for the fun afternoon April ...)
She and I have been friends for 23 years! :)
I can't imagine life without her ---

Kaleb at bat - It's Little League Season!
(He's my slugger!)

Letter from Lauren ... Priceless!
PS: I love you up to the moon and back.

Easter 2009

Not pictured: Kade's soccer games, walk and lunch with my Mom, driving 50 Miles a day (as the Taxi Mom), family prayers, church on Sunday, dinner time as a family, yard work, Wiggle Like a Fish plans, little songs written in the car, snuggle time on the couch, the early morning rush to get to school on time, laundry piles, late-night homework and bedtime stories.
My list goes on and on ...

Sometimes I feel to grateful for LIFE I can hardly take it all in!

What little moments make you go AWE and WOW?!

What a very sweet post. I love stopping to think about the "little moments" in life that are so wonderful! Some of my favorite little moments are watching my husband play and interact with our daughter. She adores her Daddy!
