Give Thanks!

I have SO much to be THANKFUL for!
  • I'm thankful for my Lord and Savior who will never leave me nor forsake me.
  • I'm thankful for Ben, who stands by my side. My best friend for life.
  • I'm thankful for Addison, who makes me laugh every day.
  • I'm thankful for Sydney, who still likes to cuddle every night.
  • I'm thankful for friends, both old & new, who bring out the best in me.
  • I'm thankful for family, who know the best & worst of me and love me anyway.
and the little things that make a big difference...
  • I'm thankful for Target. What other place can you find toilet paper, pj's, and home decor?
  • I'm thankful for my washer & dryer. Laundry is almost fun. Almost.
  • I'm thankful for Bethany, our college roomie, who watches movies with Sydney, keeps Addi off of the kitchen table, helps with get the point!
  • I'm thankful for those grocery carts that have the car attached to the front of them. Addi LOVES those.
  • I'm thankful for our pest control guy. I've only had to kill 1 scorpion since his last visit.
  • I'm thankful for the tabs on the aluminum foil box. Did you know that the ends fold in, to help keep the foil from falling out? A good tip to know for those holiday left overs.

Fall fun

Don't you love this weather?! I've been finding every excuse I can, just to go outside. Yesterday, Addison & I decided that the yard needed some grooming. Well, I decided it. Addi kind of just went along with it. You can only do sidewalk chalk for so long, ya know.
My little helper
Already puckered out. My plan worked!
Corbin came to play today, so we ran through yesterday's piles.
This was much more fun than raking!

I don't know what they're looking for, but so cute.

So sweet!

Here are some adorable newborn pictures of Sydney that I've been wanting to post. They were taken by my sweet friend (and awesome photographer), Kelly Hornberger. Kelly took Addi's newborn pictures a couple of years ago, so it was really special to have her capture Sydney's sweet little face too. I just love 'em. Kelly is SO talented. The last one with Addi is classic. THIS is the story of my life. Thanks so much Kel. Love ya, girl!

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween everybody. We had a great week, beginning with our church's Fall Festival. Addi enjoyed the petting zoo, the bowling game & the basketball toss. We practiced putting treats in our pumpkin throughout the week, hoping that by Saturday we'd have "trick or treating" down. Instead, Addi decided that everything needed to go into the pumpkin; Sydney's bottle, dirty diapers, Fruit Loops, etc. Fun times. Saturday night, we ate hotdogs and hung out with clowns. Literally :) Here's some pictures.
Let's take a closer look, shall we?
Some friends: Ella, Emily, Millie & Skyler
What an athlete!
Nothin' but net.
You want me to wear what?
My little ladybug.
Addi was too excited to sit down.
She only interrupted the magic show twice.
Not a framer, but the best we could get.
Happy Halloween!
