"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Perfect Moment Monday: Too Many To Count

Lori over at Weebles Wobblog says that "Perfect Moment Monday is more about noticing a perfect moment than about creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between."

This weekend was amazing. The whole family got together at my parents' house for an early Thanksgiving meal.
We had moments of pure goofiness and silliness...

moments of more sedate fun...

and uncles and nephews "practicing" their martial arts skills
Most of all, it was just time for us to be together as a family.

There was also one miraculous turn of events this weekend. Gabe is potty trained. He is doing everything in the potty. I expect we will have some slip ups but that is normal. I'm so proud of my little guy and so relieved he is out of diapers.

Sounds like a pretty perfect weekend :-)

Thank you for your kind words and for the knowledge about Mizuku - sounds like a nice way of honoring the loss of an unborn child.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! It looks like you had a wonderful time with your family. I love family get togethers where there are several things going on all over the place and so much chaos that it's hard to keep it all straight! Keep smiling and laughing as that is what keeps us sane!
