my favorite time of day

Some of my favorite hours of the day are between 5:30pm and 9pm. Just about every day I get to spend every waking moment playing with Madelyn. We read books, create art, cook, clean, feed baby dolls, build giant towers with blocks, go on adventures and the list goes on and on each and every day. I love it. I am so thankful to be able to stay at home with her. However, I absolutely love it when Luke walks through the door after work.

He is such an amazing father. He crams all the fun in to a few hours and I am pretty sure the best part of Madelyn's day begins at 5:30pm too!

Today, right when he walked in the door he asked Madelyn if she would join him for a walk around the neighborhood. When they came home, they whipped up a little brinner (breakfast for dinner) together in the kitchen for all of us. After we ate, he led us in a hands on family devotional. Then Madelyn challenged him to a few little games of her own. Of course he always goes along with her requests, even if they require him to make a fool of himself.

I love and look forward to these hours because I just love to watch them together.
Usually I am fairly unimportant in her world at this time of the day, but that doesn't bother me.

There are usually nightly concerts and tonight we started a new family reading time. It was a good time for her to wind down and for everyone to just be together. We probably read at least 10 books a day but  during family reading time she looks at her own books while we read ours.

I am so thankful to be married to a man who is an amazing father to our little girl. He loves us well.


  1. Sounds like a wonderful nightly routine! :) LOVE the family reading time. What a great tradition to start!

  2. Madelyn has three years already?


Thank you for the comment love! :)
