The Quotidian (9. 5. 16)

Quotidian: daily, usual, or customary;
everyday; ordinary; commonplace.

For Mother's Day ~ baked by Emma.

Three of my treasures ~ Mother's Day 2016.

Not too big for the kiddie pool.

A Sunday afternoon game.

All cleaned up and ready for company.

Playing Thomas with Miss E and her little sister, Miss A.

Even Howie takes a turn ~ with Calvin.

I spoke too soon ~ Cheepers suddenly got sick,
and we had to have him put down.
Thankfully, it was a gentle end for him.
He was a sweet little guy, and will be missed by us all.

With Love, Camille

The kiddie pool picture made me smile..haha! :) It hasn't been quite that warm here yet (thankfully). I am a fan of 70* weather...nice and comfy! :)

The picture of you with your children is just lovely. You are so photogenic. You always look so nice. :) I hope you have a wonderful mother's day!

That doll house is *fantastic*!!! :)

Camille said...

Katy ~ You are so sweet....thank you for your kind words. I must tell you, however, that only the *good* shots make it to the blog...ha! Emma will go in the pool even when it's in the 70's. Happy Spring to you! :)

With Love, Camille

Oh, I'm so sorry about the hampster! We lost my favorite hen the other day. She just got sicker and sicker. We have no idea why. Of course, she was the only chicken I had named :/ Mother's Day must always be bittersweet for you now. You are an amazing mom! Your kids are crackin' me up in the kiddie pool. Love it!

Camille said...

Jackie ~ So sorry about your hen! Isn't it amazing how attached we get to these little critters?? Yes, Mother's Day, and most other days, have bittersweet aspects to them now...heaven is our home! What a thought! Thank you for your kind bless my heart. Hugs! Camille
