Happiness Is… – Recipe: Cheeseburger Pizza


Happiness is Fridays.  Yes, Friday is always at the top of the list. But, what is really cool is…

Happiness is your littles knowing how cool Friday is.  Gabriel came into the room last night and said, “Momma, tomorrow is Friday!”  I loved it!  I love that he knows, because of the excitement that we have put into it, that Friday is a really good thing.  It is happiness!


Happiness is having my mom in town for the weekend.


Happiness is Sean taking off work early so that he can help me with the Fall Festival.


Happiness is watching my littles lick the bowls.


Happiness is watching Ethan learn a new trick, after carefully watching his brother and sister do it for days.


Happiness is pizza night.  Even though we had to delay it until Sunday night this week, it will still be pizza and movie night.  And, it will still be fun.

Happiness is trying different pizzas….with the pizza of choice for this week being Cheeseburger Pizza.
