5 Faves

Last night as I crawled into bed with clean sheets, I started thinking to myself, "Clean sheets, all crisp and straight is definately one of my most favorite things." The only thing that would have made that better, is if my legs would have been freshly shaved, but they were not. I started to think of my other favorite things and these came into mind, anything with peanut butter and hearing my girls laugh. It was then that I realized that those 3 favorites used different senses. I then started to think about the other 2 senses and tried to pick something out that was a favorite. I thought of smelling fresh shelled peas from the garden, but it also tied with smelling my husband when he decides to wear yummy smelling cologne. That isn't very often unfortunately so I have to be happy with good smelling deodorant or shaving cream. The other favorite I could think of is seeing my lawn mowed and weed wacked. Man does it look good!
So there are my five favorites for the five senses.
Touch- clean, perfectly flat and straight sheets
Taste- anything with peanut butter in it
Sound- my girls giggling and laughing
Smell- fresh green peas in my hand on the way to my mouth, or my Matty
Sight- recently mowed lawn

Smells - I love the smell of rain. I also love the smell of baby lotion!

Ok, your comment thing on the post above is not there so I will commnet here.

That was sooooooooooooo funny! That door knob scene was probably frustrating on both parts. When my kids scream like that it makes my head hurt. I can't believe you had to result to taking off the door knob. And then comes the smile. It's like how can I not smile back even though I am so angry with my child.

I have had many a mornings with that in and out sleep. That seems to be the only way I could take a nap sometimes when I was prego with Lydia. BTW-your Mom sounds so cool and funny. Next time she is up here, call me and I'll sprint..most likely drive...down so I can meet her.

Hope Kendal's sleep gets better. I forgot how she looked too until I saw the picture you posted. Sweet thing. Keep us updated!
