A Guiding Light

There is always a light after every storm.
It is God's way of saying, I am here-everything is going to be alight." ~Mama Hen

I took a little break from blogging to get through some challenging times. It was something I missed very much, because I started this blog as a gift for my daughter. We are on a new journey and are looking forward to a happy change. Through everything God has been sitting on my shoulder guiding me. And when I felt discouraged and much pain He was there to pick me up and simply give me a hug of encouragement. I am so grateful for my many abundant blessings and will continue to walk towards the light.


We love you Whiskers!

Little Chick Gets Her Ears Pierced

"What a special day getting one's ears pierced!" ~Mama Hen
Little Chick was excited to get her ears pierced in the beginning of this month! We have been talking about it for a year and I wanted to wait until she was ready. Well, Little Chick was so brave and I am so proud of her. She picked the earrings she wanted to get, beautiful pink sparkly flowers. After she had them done we went for a delicious ice cream sorbet with lots of yummy toppings. It was a fantastic day!

Getting Ready for the Holiday

"Getting ready for the holidays is so much fun!" ~Mama Hen
Little Chick and I love getting ready for the holidays! We have been making decorations and enjoying pumpkin picking at our local farms. We the holidays!

Field Trip to the Animal Shelter

"Teach children to love and respect animals." ~Mama Hen
Little Chick and our Brownie troop have been having so much fun since the new Brownie year has begun. We have been learning about animal shelters and how we can help out. Our first field trip this year was to our local animal shelter. The girls learned all about the shelter and they got to see the animal control van. Mr. Miller let each girl see the equipment they use to rescue the animals as well as hold them. It was an exciting day!

Thanksgiving Thursday & Our Wonderful Friends

"The blessing of friendship deserves the greatest of thanks." ~Mama Hen 
Today was a very special day! Little Chick and I met Annette and Little Lewie for the second time at a really fun bounce house. Annette is my dear bloggy friend from Mommy Spirit. We met through blogging when I first started blogging in 2010. We have enjoyed watching our children grow up on our blogs. Now it is so special to see our little ones having a super time together! Annette and I finally met one another over the summer. The children hit it off swimming all day and Annette has gone from being my really great "bloggy friend" to a "dear friend". It was a rainy day here in Connecticut today and meeting at a bouncy house was the perfect way to spend an afternoon. I am so happy we were able to meet up and look forward to apple picking soon with our fantastic friends!
 
Thanksgiving Thursday:
1.) Little Chick and my family. 2.) The blessing of friendship. 3.) Meeting our super friends Annette and Little Lewie for an afternoon of fun. 4.) The wonderful experience of being able to foster kittens. 5.) For my mom and all the care and love she shows my daughter and myself all the time. I love you mommy!  

The Joy of Art

"Creativity through art allows us to bring our inner happiness to life." ~Mama Hen  
Little Chick learned about Georges Seurat in our Brownies meeting on Monday and wanted to use his creative pointillism at home to make a beautiful autumn painting. She also learned about textured painting and murals with her Brownie group. Today she created the beginning stage of a Tiffany style stained glass art with her classmates. When it dries and she can finish it we will be sure to share the pictures. Little Chick is my wonderful Little Artist! And finally, Jellybean and Little Chick continue to have fun each day playing with string, jingly kitty cat toys and Grandma Hen.
