Sometimes, I look at my kids, and feel so overwhelmingly blessed. Today is one of those days. So, in honor or my little man, Micah, and my munchkin, Abby, here are a few, previously unposted pics of them.

I like to buy them new outfits for the 4th of July. Here they are modeling this year's wardrobe. Pretty cute, huh? Micah wasn't really in the mood for pics. This frown quickly turned to a smile when we got to the Richfield City parade. Can I just say that Micah quickly turned into a candy chasing aficionado? He ended up with half a grocery bag of candy. Abby didn't catch on as quickly, and even after she did, she picked and chose exactly which pieces of candy she wanted. If it didn't look good to her, she just left it in the road for the other kids to gather. She ended up with about 12, carefully chosen pieces of (mostly pink) candy.

I love these moments! Notice how Abby is looking up at her big brother? You can just tell how much she adores him, can't you?

Abby insisted on telling Micah a secret. To this day, I don't know what the secret is. I'm not too worried though. How much could a 6-year-old and a 3-year-old have to hide anyway?

My favorite!

Freshly dressed in their new Christmas outfits. Yes, I buy them new outfits for every holiday. :)

All ready for an early morning Easter Egg Hunt. Heath's work opened their annual one up to the community this year. It's always a lot of fun and the kids look forward to it each year.

Last night, after doing a very few fireworks, I put the kids in bed and went to clean the kitchen. When I turned around, Micah was standing there. I said, "Micah, what are you doing? You're supposed to be in bed?" He said, "I just wanted to give you a hug."

Like I said, I am blessed.

Micah always says the funniest things! He is so loving, which makes up for the being hard, right? :)
