It's The Little Things

Sometimes during the day I'm reminded that it's the little things that count.
For instance, my husband may not have bought me a birthday present
(and I told him not to)
but this morning, with rain in the forecast,
I came downstairs to find this.... 

And my heart melted a little.

It's putting the umbrella out for your wife because you know she'll forget it.

So I know this is like a week late
but seeing as how I haven't posted in a couple months
a week late isn't so bad.
And let's face it...
I'm only posting these pictures because I think they're so friggin' cute
and every mama wants to brag, right?

So this was Halloween at our house...

We made some Halloween ghost footprint cards
to send out to friends and family a few weeks ago.

Evelyn dressed up as a flower.
Although she kinda looks like a cross between
a bug, a turtle, and a flower.
She also got called the sun.
Whatever.  Babies in costumes are always cute.
I mean, look at those striped tights.  Adorable.

The hubs and I dressed up for a costume party the weekend before Halloween.
Pretty much nobody at the party knew who we were supposed to be.
Do you?

I've been trying to come up with some eloquent words to say about voting.
But my mommy brain is failing me.
Really, it comes down to this...

Women have been allowed to vote in this country for less than 100 years.
People across the globe die everyday fighting for their right to vote.
This country isn't perfect, but one of the great things about it is our right to vote.

I don't care who you vote for, just get out and vote.
Get your sticker and wear it with pride.
Set a good example for your kids.
Just. Do. It.
