the beauty of a moment

out my back window right now i am watching moonpie and buddy play on the trampoline. it's back in the 40's here, so they are rightly bundled in winter coats. moonpie stands at one end, beckons her brother, and he is off, running right at her. with a slight bounce off of each other they crash in a big hug, rolling and laughing. this has been going on for about 10 minutes. and since i can't exactly hear them, i can use the romanticism only a mother can and assume they are hugging (not wrestling) and laughing (not crying hysterically). all of this while listening to my dave wilcox station on pandora, and putting a spice cake in the oven.
what a beautiful moment to sit in...

That is a beautiful moment - but I am too distracted by the fact that you have posted 5 (FIVE) days in a row! It's like I get to spend a little time with you each and every day. You should definitely call these posts "Moments with Mandi" to go along with your themes.

I had a few cards without glitter that I ended up using. I was trying to spare my dear friends! :)
