Have you ever had one of those moments? Where no matter what has been going on, or how crazy things may be, everything just seems perfect? I had one of those moments tonight. I made meatloaf and mashed potatoes for dinner tonight. I don't know about you, but that is one of our favorite meals. So yummy! Anyway, we are sitting down to eat and I mix my peas with my potatoes, like always. Natalie sees me and she does the same with her food. Usually she won't go near peas but tonight she tried them mixed with her potatoes and she loved them. So then I showed her how I would take my potatoes with peas in them, dip it in the ketchup and then pick up a bite of meatloaf. The perfect bite. She did the exact same thing! So cute! And she ate a ton. :)
So then after dinner, Shane and I are cleaning up the kitchen. The girls are being great and it's almost bedtime so I ask them if they'd like to color. We get out the crayons and the paper and we start coloring. I'm coloring with Heidi and Natalie is coloring her own. Then she decides she wants to help me and Heidi color so she moves to the other side of the table. Shane comes to sit at the table and Natalie hands him her paper and some crayons and tells him to color too. And that is my perfect moment. The whole night seemed wonderful, but in that moment I wanted to freeze time. We were all sitting at the table together coloring. It was so peaceful and happy.
