So the blogging is sporadic but it is happening and that's good, right? It's something anyway.

It's been a busy few days around here.

Last Thursday was Grandparent's Day at the kids school and then on Friday we had our annual gala/auction. It's one of the two major fundraisers we do each year and a personal favorite because it's an excuse to get all gussied up and be fancy. My friend loaned me her dress and I looooved the lacey bottom!



Saturday morning the girls and I went to a baby shower that had a woodland theme. How precious is this little hedgehog cheese ball and cute owl veggie tray. Pinterest is the bees knees for ideas, y'all!



Saturday evening I spent some time with a lovely family doing some generation pictures. Those are some of my favorite sessions. There is something really special about seeing where God has taken the love of two people and multiplied it.

Sunday was a lovely reformation celebration at church complete with games and face painting.


The church also surprised Rob with a really fun birthday gift. There is a long running joke within the church and suffice it to say that among other things Rob will be the proud owner of a pair of cowboy boots as soon as he can get to the store with his gift certificate.

Monday was a fun Halloween night complete with friends, hot dogs and mac-n-cheese, and giant marshmallows. One hundred thirty-five chocolate dipped giant marshmallows to be exact along with 4 gallons of lemonade and three pitchers of ice water. Everyone is always so grateful for the drinks and I wonder why it took me so long to come up with the idea of that simple show of hospitality for the neighborhood?


Hoping things will slow down a little but we'll see. November is here and that pretty much puts the holiday season in high gear.

So what are you up to?
