Crayons and Markers

Five cats..three dogs...two spinning hamsters and a singing bird.

Crayons and markers and paints in every imaginary color. Walls as empty blank canvases..waiting to be filled. Imprints of tiny hands and feet found all around.

Cookies and milk. A bowl of fresh fruit on the kitchen counter. Music filling the air.

Pillow fights and marshmallows and tickles and giggles and joy everywhere.

Light and laughter and unpredictable messy magic. Bubble baths and good-night kisses and hugs.

And so it is - I imagine - the picture perfect happy family and life that lives right here.

Four dancing..growing children and lots and lots of love.
