Happy fourth of July! It is such a quiet holiday for us this year--no picnics, parties, fireworks. Hmmm--may have to at least have a hot dog later. Speaking of independence in a different way, this picture of the two kiddos makes me giggle. They were so little. Ella was just days old here. Now, they are both fiercely independent and strong-willed! I rescrapped this photo because I thought it would be perfect with this week's Color Combo Challenge colors! I added in a bit of green just to make it all pop! Journaling reads: This is the second time I've used this picture. The first time, I reflected on how Nathan was handling the transition to having Ella around. There was a rough patch and I felt a lot of guilt. Over the years, that has most certainly changed. I often comment to Daddy that we have given you both a wonderful gift--each other. Because when I see you with each other now--there is only love!
I am amazed lately about how my two kids adore each other. Yes, they still fight a lot. But they also really look out for each other. When we are at the park, Nathan doesn't go more than ten minutes before he has to know where Belle is. It is so sweet!
Let me end by saying that when it rains it pours. The scrapping gods are good to me right now! More about that later...
