My Norman Rockwell Moment

Yesterday, while going about my day, in between folding laundry, checking my blog, cooking dinner, reading my blog, tidying up the house, reading your blog, taking out the trash, envying your blog, and picking up the 9 millionth thing off the floor (a shoe, a sock, a dirty dish, an empty juice box, etc. you get the picture) I stopped in my tracks to see what will forever be imbedded in my brain and what I like to call, my Norman Rockwell moment. You see, up here in New Jersey, we've had an unusually cold winter, a bad flu season and what seems like a gizillion days off of school! Add them up and you get two cooped up siblings that are at best, too close for comfort. So when I glanced over and saw my two sweet, adorable angels quietly doing their homework at the kitchen table together (this never happens) I had no choice but to snap a picture and save it for posterity. And also to share it with all of you. These blissful moments are few and far between. Don't get me wrong, my children don't hate eachother. In fact, most times they adore eachother. It's just that this winter has seemed to go on for an eternity with no end in sight and we are all suffering from a case of cabin fever. So I have to take these moments and run with them.



Before I go I just want to remind you that tomorrow is Flaunt Your Red Friday hosted by Nancy at Southern Lady (her blog has a new name, but I forget what it is at the moment, but she can still be found at Southern Lady) AND she is having a giveaway. So don't forget to sign up and I'm off in search of something red!

Hi Kim, your girls look like they get along just perfectly.lol! I have cabin fever too, it hasn't been as cold here as it is where you live, but defintly not warm enough to get out and walk your dog. Spring will be here soon!

I posted an "M" frame on my latest post if your still interested. Don't feel obligated if you've changed your mind though. No problem. Talk to you soon! Kristen
