Happiness is...

a new toy??! Christmas 2007

I LOVE watching how excited my boys get over the "smallest" things!
The happiness that these little things bring to them, and how I wish
adults could find that same pleasure in the "small" stuff!
My boys teach me EVERY day to find
happiness in ways I never thought possible!!

or a not-so-new toy?!

Jacob got this train from "Santa" in 2007,
and Daddy decided to get it out for Justin last night!
Needless to say, he LOVED it!
He was laughing and gasping for air as the train went around and around the living room!
Almost the exact same reaction from Jacob
when he walked out to find that same train Christmas morning!
So, for me Happiness is watching these boys SMILE
and ENJOY life each and every day, even if that happiness comes on a
Little Tikes train(that's really loud and takes up a lot of space!!)
Makes me realize that freaking out over "nothing" isn't worth my time AT ALL!

I love this post Marissa! You are right about adults losing that ability to get happy about the smallest things. These pictures are so cute! I hope you are well! Have a great night!

How fun that he loved the train so much and you were able to enjoy it spite the noise level. Hope your having a good night.

You got a toy on sale from $24.99 to $2.49 - that's awesome. You need to be writing these kinds of tips on your blog

What a awesome toy! You are so right, our children really do teach us how to find happiness in the little things. Some how so many adults really do loose that.

I'm grateful that my little boy makes me smile (and laugh) each day. Yes, it's the little things that count!
