Do you believe in magic?

Whenever I hear the word magic the song by The Lovin' Spoonful pops into my head. Such a classic, good time song. It reminds me of the summers of my childhood.....and isn't that where magic comes from? Childhood.

My sweet middle son Erik made me a magic snowflake at school this week and proudly brought it home to present to me. He knows how much I love winter and snow....and also how disappointing this snow-less winter has left us all feeling. I asked him to tape it to my bedroom window because I knew the light would be pretty shining through it in the morning. 

The next morning we awoke to snow! Not much, just enough to cover the ground...but still it is snow and it is here. The magic of winter and childhood is very much alive. 

We spent the walk to school searching for Tomten footprints. The boys are positive they found some. 

This Moment- a day late

Inspired by Amanda's Friday ritual.

A special moment to remember, these first two weeks with baby Magnus home have been so full of special moments. I couldn't pick just one! My favorite moments are seeing all my boys together. It makes my heart happy.

New Year, New Life, New Love

My apologies for deserting this space just as I was beginning to get better at posting, but I do have a very good excuse!

On January 8th at 10:40 am, after 8 hours of intense back labor we welcomed with tears of joy, Magnus Adrian! With a full head of soft, dark hair and big navy blue eyes, he is certainly a bundle of joy, an 8lb 1.5 oz, 19 inches long bundle of joy!

It has been a challenging recovery for me physically but otherwise it has been a pretty perfect transition into a family of 5. We are all completely smitten with this brand new member of our family.
