Weekly Winners - Blogoversary edition

May 18th - 24th
Lotus @ Sarcastic Mom is the brainchild and host of Weekly Winners. It gives me something to aspire too each week ( a new camera ...) I didn't get many this week.

The sky is the limit

Baby is feeding
Brotherly hugsFuture Blogger
Daddy made a sandpit this weekend
Sandy piggies

what happens when you leave toddlers in bed to nap
(ps there was a little parcel in the bed but I spared you
thank goodness he doesn't like painting)

Twin hug

the end of another WW

525,600 minutes do you measure a year ?
Well, a year ago today I started My Little Drummer Boys blog (though I had two other posts written earlier that were an integral part of my story). A few years ago I saw the musical RENT. This song sums up what I feel.

How do you measure a year ? ... 376 published posts...1500 cups of tea or more . A large number with no comments . I was very discouraged in the beginning. I am still not sure how where my blog will take me . There are so many things I want to say but not enough hours in my day and yet ...

I do feel 'down' sometimes and I feel if I don’t put some of my thoughts down I will have a meltdown.

I’m not writing this for sympathy or even your encouraging and kind words or earnest comments. It blows me away when you do though. The kindness of strangers can be infinite.I just know that I have been thinking (and dreaming) of so much I want to say and not saying anything about it is making me feel worse . So maybe I will ?

I say thank you for each and every one of my readers for hanging in there. I really appreciate you. It is a great song ... Seasons of Love ?

Aw, so cute! I loved the future blogger, and you are brave - nobody gets near my laptop because I'm paranoid something bad will happen to it.

Alison said...

Gorgeous photos, as always! I love "baby is feeding". What a great one for his 21st!
On that note, how are the 2nd birthday plans going?

Hi, popping over for nacomleavmo. The boys are super cute! I really like the sandy feet picture. That would be a fun page to scrapbook!

Lilly said...

Wow that was a fantastic post. They are undeniably gorgeous, healthy boys. What a year it must have been for you. Not an easy job in the least but proof is in those photos. They are fantastic photos. I love reading your posts keep going. I want to be reading about the drummer boys when they have had their 18th birthday!!!

One of my favorite songs long before I ever saw the movie. Happy Blogoversary! I'm glad you started it. I look forward to your pictures and stories for another year. Love the shot of your teen's hair. Adores the sandy piggies. Sigh. I so love the age your boys are. Even if one rarely gets to sit down. Love ya girl!

Mishelle - thanks - he is following in footsteps of mummy.

Sarah - lol I don't know if you find an answer please share it.

Thanks Holly - yes my favourite too. A rare moment when they weren't squabbling over toys and pushing each other.

Thanks Project Mommy

Jenty - your photos are awesome.I will stop by more often instead of just viewing in my reader ;) Thank you.

Maggie - thanks I was watching him very carefully ... can't not blog a moment when you catch it.

Alison - LOL - I am saving it. I don't know what to do ... will have at home if weather is good.thank you

Thanks momofone for now ;) - I am so keen to try scrap booking and I have some scarping stuff but not enough time ... err Blogging is to blame.

Thanks Lilly : my teen is not keen for me to blog about him though.The little ones haven't a clue yet.

Thanks Lightening - I enjoy all my weekly memes. I try not to miss SS too ;)

Bettina - absolutely I love all my internet friends.thank you.

Jeanie: thank you - lucky Blogger counts for me ... I had no idea.

Kate- thank you .It was a 'tidy' one thank goodness LOL

Janice - thank you.Yes I like it too - not the teen's hair - grrr a big bone of contention. The little boys are very very busy and keep me busier now they can scale the heights and move chairs than before when they were non mobile!
