Family life or the goofy faces week

Another week has gone. Joys and struggles.For my sanity i chose to have faith and rejoice even in the midst of difficult times. Well i have to say that in the end facing the hard moments with grace was the way and the week ended out being nice and happy after all.

On tuesday papaF took Gaia and Leo to the hairdresser. Gaia's head needed just a good brush from a professional hand ( no haircut for my girls ! I love their hair ) while Leo's wild hair needed a good cut. Here they are once they got back. Goofy faces were my punishment for harrassing them with the camera :)

...And of course Milla had to join the fun. I love the way they looks alike in this picture, but one - Gaia - has darker hair and blue eyes while the other - Milla- has blondish hair and darker eyes.

Then our dear Tappo, he is so fun and nice. Now we can just open his door and let him out, he has his 'toilet' in a corner of the hutch so no worry about having to clean after his 'afternoon walk' and then when it's time to get inside we only have to pat him on his back and he will run inside on his own. We really love him !

Then something funny i did. Our headphone foam covers was all broken so we had to take it off, but the plastic was quite unconfortable so i tried just for fun to crochet a new cover, and well it came out nice :)

Then here it is Seba, while hosting his night, yesterday. He asked for pizza and supplì ( those rice-balls on the black tray ) and of course all of them were homemade. But since he was the first time i gave Supplì a try he kept complimenting me all the time ' Mom, i didn't notice you went to the store buying them them ... what ? you didn't buy them !!  ...'' So so sweet i was on the verge of melting :)

And while i was getting the dinner ready Leo was practicing with pen and ink, oldfashioned boy :)

And in the end the scoop of the day : drum roll pleas ......

And before leaving for a good night sleep, here the Words that kept me company for this rollercoaster week

17 Though the fig tree does not bud
and there are no grapes on the vines,
though the olive crop fails
and the fields produce no food,
though there are no sheep in the pen
and no cattle in the stalls,

18 yet I will rejoice in the LORD,
I will be joyful in God my Savior.

19 The Sovereign LORD is my strength;
he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
he enables me to go on the heights.
( Habakkuk3:17-19)

Have a peaceful sunday and joyful new week, shared with those you love the most.

Hello dear, sweet Flavia!
Have you read Hinds Feet on High Places by Hannah Hurnard? I think you would like it very much, if you haven't read it.
Your children look so very happy, free to love.
My prayer for you is that your sweet times of renewal with the King of All would delight you, drawing you close to His heart. I'm so glad you are my friend.
