To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony.

Poor Sam

In February we got a Keurig, one of those individual cup coffee/tea/cocoa/any-beverage-made-with-hot-water things. We love it.
Sam really loves it.
He is fascinated with the way the machine works and is all about serving everybody a hot cup of cocoa.
Or tea.
Or coffee.
He just loves to use the thing. So, as you can imagine, he has loved having Lori and the kids here because there are multiple people to take orders from and serve.
Except that after almost three weeks of cocoa every single morning the novelty is wearing off for some of the children.
Sam's response this morning when his offer of a cup of warm chocolate goodness was declined?
"Kids these days. They just don't drink hot chocolate like they used too."

He is a gorgeous child. He does look great in blue! You can tell he certainly isn't shy in front of the camera!

Oh, and his feet are stinkin' huge!!

Thanks ladies! I have a hard time believing the boy will turn eleven in a couple of weeks. He really is a hoot in front of the camera but it's the only way Ive been able to get him to work with me :-)
And from the size of his feet we're pretty sure he'll be at least as tall, if not taller than his Daddy.
