11 days old ❤

one little eye peeked today! {top left} and they are eating hay!

Ava Petals {momma} is just a joy!
She just hangs out on her own, joining us in the kitchen sometimes.

Bella Lu is doing her best with the babies! She frets over them more than Ava!!!

❀ life is so good ❀

beauty in life ~•☼•~

california dreamin'

it's gray and cooling outside, sniffles inside...but OH...oh...OH.....
the memories of Venice Beach!!!
summer 2009

these last few days have really felt like Cali kind of weather. It's almost Thanksgiving and it's been in the upper 70's {even hot a day or two}.

speaking of thanksgiving.......

Grandfather Great Spirit

All over the world the faces
of living ones are alike.

With tenderness they have
come up out of the ground.

Look upon your children
that they may face the winds
And walk the good road to the Day of Quiet.

Grandfather Great Spirit
Fill us with the Light.
Give us the strength to understand,
And the eyes to see.

Teach us to walk the soft Earth
as relatives to all that live.
