Ansel-isms

After getting ready one morning, Ansel came out of the bathroom with some major mousse in the middle of his hair in one spot. "I put it on to get handsome," he explained. 

And when queuing up a PBS show to watch, a talk show came up as the television turned on. Ansel angrily responded, "Not girl football!"

This kid.

Dominant gene

They all have a cleft in their chins. 
And I love it!

Name writing

Ansel is in that stage where he loves writing his name. Three year old handwriting is so cute.

On mourning

Mourning is strange. One moment you are in tears. The next, you find yourself in shock. And at other times it's surreal and you aren't really sure how you feel. And that usually happens when you go on with your everyday tasks and you feel like something isn't right but you don't have the power to do anything about it. It's nice to have a greater perspective. But there sure is a hole in your heart when someone you love passes away.  And that feeling of surrealness sticks around for much longer than you expect.

Sounds

I love the sound of:
My kids playing with friends
The heater
Nursing babe
Osmond Christmas album
Oven fan

And the smell of a fresh pine tree.

Observed

I just saw a lady vacuuming leaves one by one in her front yard.
