Marie told me about this BBC show called Wives and Daughters. And I am so addicted now! I encourage anyone who loves Elizabeth Bennett or Ann of Green Gables to try this series =) I've been watching it through YouTube. I have not yet finished it, so I don't know the outcome. I hope it ends well! =) Here is the trailer.
I have been working on the arrangement of our house. And ever since we got a piano our house has flowed so much better! We had purchased a piano and after I decided what room it looked best in, I had to rearrange the rest of the house! Anyways, we made a really nice piano/music room with what was once the dinning room. I found this beautiful shade at Micheals for 75 % off! I love it and I am able to decorate the room using the colors of this shade! I got some new pillows and some pictures that coordinate with it =)
Aamena, Sam, and Safiyya in their playtime garb :)
With the kids back to school this last week, Sisi and I have had such a lovely time! :) Although I do miss Sam and Aamena, it has been nice to have peaceful mornings with the little one =) She has fun in the bath much longer now and I get to blog more!!! :) I also curled my hair while she was bathing =). I don't always come to work looking my best, and its nice to have time to beautify myself! Yesterday we made a dump cake together. She sits on the counter and watches. It is also really nice, because I can deal with her little tantrums a little bit better. She is starting to get in the habit of being good! I put some pictures up of the kids in their morning dress up outfits. We had a wonderful summer. I am so thankful =)
Here are a couple more pictures, that I wanted to put up. While we were in LA, we stayed on a retired ship named The Queen Mary. Its pretty antique and very quaint. It doesn't sail anymore. They have several restaurants running on it and have lots of tours during the day. It was a lot of fun. I wish we had taken the time to do a tour of the ship, but we didn't :) Too excited to go to the beach I guess!
Guess where we went this last week? Mhmmm =) We went to the beach! It was either the Grand Canyon...... Or LA...... I am very glad we decided to go to the beach! =) The water was perfect! The waves were fantastic as well =) But not to0 overpowering! Here are some pictures of our trip. Is everyone enjoying the olympics? I have been glued to them since they started! =)
I have to say that Safiyya is in love with Elon. Ever since Elon was born, I have showed her pictures of him off of my phone and she just loves him. She has named all her babies "Elon". And whenever we happen to see him, she almost smothers him with love :) I have to tell her to please stop touching or hugging Elon. Anyways here are some pictures of them reading together one day at Marie's house.
Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.
