A "Complimentary" Dinner

This is going to be a short posting, but I had to share. Today is Saturday, and we have been working non stop all day long(okay that's a lie, we had a nap this afternoon.) We started early this morning thinking we were going to have family pictures taken, but we got rained out. So we busted in with our last two batches of canning pears. We got those done and then began the house cleaning... ugh! Well needless to say, Mitch took us out to dinner. We had only been seated for a few minutes when an older gentleman who was leaving with his wife, walked up to Mitch and said "I want to compliment you on your nice looking family- what handsome children." We looked at each other and grinned. Then the couple seated behind us was talking to each other and I was holding Creed over my shoulder- I heard the guy say "what a cute baby!" and he was only talking to his wife!
I always think my kids are cute, but it's really nice to hear it from other people-- especially total strangers. That made my day! Now, if I can just get my cute rugrats in bed(it's only 8:00)- that would just be too perfect of an ending to a good day!

When people compliment me on the beauty of my kids, I always say thankyou, without really giving it too much thought. But really, who made me the way I am, and the way they are.... God!!! Thank you Heavenly Father for sharing your beautiful children with us!! Thank you Carlie for the post, you inspire me, even when you aren't trying to inspire! By the way, you do have the cutest kids!! I can't stop snapping shots of Collin every time they come over!!
