November Weather

Eleven years ago, I married my best friend. Thank-you for all you do for us, for me. I love you, and am so thankful that the Lord gave you to me.
We've been through alot. We've seen a few storms, maybe a hurricane or two, and I can think of no one else I'd rather have weathered through it all with. The storms will keep coming, but we have eight beautiful sunbeams to show for our time together, and many happy memories with a pot of gold or two along our way.
I know I've been a hormonal cyclone lately, and I'm glad you've put up with me. The clouds should be parting soon, and even though winter is upon us, life with you is like summer everyday - with the occasional thunderstorm...

Missing In Action

Alot less of this lately...
And more of this...

Means this...



And This...




And this...












And a whole lot of this! I tried to count my loads and lost count after 16 with plenty more to go... But aren't my new "Ladies in Red" pretty?



You see, it was sorted and scattered everywhere.





Of course, being the dedicated homeschooling mom that I am, we are doing alot of this. Did I mention I played hooky Friday?









These are the clean piles, but who's counting those? We're usually just looking for our undies.












Toys are starting to blend in with the furniture and carpet as a part of my design concept.
So for all those people that think my house is always perfect, think again. OR should I say, just drop by. But be careful. I haven't showered in days, and might be missing certain undergarments.

Sunday Best Jailbirds

We put on our smiles Sunday morning and made our way to meet with our church family for the first times in weeks last Sunday. It was so good to fellowship and be amongst our church family again. We missed them! Well, maybe not Sophie... She wasn't too happy here. Can you tell?
There's just something special about that first Sunday you walk through the doors with a new baby. I remember each one, and all the dear saints that over the years have helped to welcome our newborn babes into the fold. We love you brothers and sisters in Christ!
I just had to add my jailbird brothers. I'm sure they'll be partners in crime one day!





Our First Family Outing

Last Saturday evening, we all piled in the van for the first time since Sullivan was born and made our way out to Bennigans to eat. We try and do something special and fun for Halloween, and this was their vote believe it or not. Majority rules around here!
We got alot of stares from the people around us. I think they were trying to figure out if they were all ours... 10 happy tummy's later we made our way home to bed for our favorite night of the year. 1 more hour of sleep! Yay!

Baby Magic

Hands down this is my favorite baby bath soap. I just love the way their sweet heads smell after their baths in this stuff.
Baby Magic + wet baby = This sweet thing
