To my winners Amanda and Courtney N! I delivered the Story Lines books to them today and can't wait to see what their kiddos do with these books. :)

Thanks also to all of you who shared or "liked" this post on Facebook!

Compendium never fails to inspire me!
I have a long-standing love affair with their beautiful collections of quotes and uplifiting images, and I love that they also have products to encourage artistic expression in kiddos. J My little Katie Shae was so excited to break out the crayons and tell a story about a brave little kitten saving the world! ;)
And how precious will it be to look back at this story illustrated by her as a seven year old? Really precious. J
These pictures are just a few of my favorite pages from her finished book…I love them.
I want to share this fun experience with two of my blog readers! Please enter a comment below and I will pick two winners and send you each a copy of a ready to illustrate book from Compendium’s children line! (You can check out the full line here)

The luckiest...

These pictures have made me smile so many times today...this is my youngest baby and my oldest baby doing what they do best. :) Snuggling and being oh-so-sweet together! Katie is 7, and Parker is 6 months old. She's like his second Mama and it is so cute to watch them interact. He watches her with so much love in his eyes and starts kicking up a storm and grinning when she comes near him.
I'm blessed to see the relationships between all three of my children grow.
This first day of the weekend has been perfect! Lots of snuggles to go around, relaxing, and knowing that in this house there's a lot of love to share. :)
