A Life Stirred

10 on 10–Candy Cane Version

on December 10, 2013

So, I’m not going to lie.  I really like doing this Ten on Ten thing–taking 10 pictures throughout the day, capturing the beauty in the ordinary.  Generally, it’s so easy to just see the ordinary.  The diaper changes, the meal preps, the dishes, the messes, the tantrums, and on and on.  BUT today I got to focus on the beauty that’s within the ordinary.  So fun!

Also, it didn’t hurt that this day was a little more exciting than most.  I mean, any day that involves a copious amount of cookies and frosting and Mini M&Ms has got to be a pretty beautiful day, right?

This month’s theme was Candy Canes.  It’s subtle, but it’s there.  And I promise I didn’t stage that picture of Claire!

Oh no!  A breakable ornament that we didn't move up high enough.  (Also, how many candy canes do you see?)

Oh the chaos!  Actually it wasn't that bad.  The kiddos ate most of the toppings, so not much ended up on the floor.

Looking for more Mini M&Ms.  She's a fan.

Oh, yeah...the baby!  We get some quality time when Big Sister takes a nap.

She's got the right idea.  I feel like that's advanced for a 5 month old.

Sidenote: After reading this post, I thought I should be in a picture too.

As you can see, it was a good day!
