Let it Snow!

On Friday, we ventured out to continue the tradition! . Unfortunately, we did not get a with two small kids and a whimpy me not wanting to go on these narrow mountain roads with the BETTER trees, says my adventurous husband (opposites really do attract), looks like we'll be taking the narrow road to Home Depot this year. Oh well, it was still a fun day and made for some good photo opps. Snow really is the best backdrop I think!

Away we go!

Attempting a family photo

Oh well...better luck next year!

**please excuse the silly dates on the pics, I must remember to turn this off!!

Malory's Milestones

The past month has proved to be a busy one for our littlest one. She is growing fast!

Two weeks ago she rolled over from her back to her tummy. It was so funny because we totally missed the first time she did it...always chasing that busy toddler of ours! But we managed to get the second or third time on camera.

She's also recently had her first foods...cereal sometimes with banana, just once a day for now. Yummy! She takes it like a champ, just like her sis did.

It's hard to believe she'll turn six months in less than a two weeks. She's almost sitting up without help and after helping to care for my friends one year old this past weekend, I'm bracing myself for the crawling stage, should be fun!

Looking back

Remember these? So fun to look back just one short year ago!

Cut to a few weeks ago, same scene, new addition and more hair for Liv!

Oh how I love these two!!

Even though I try to be thankful MOST of the time, I am always reminded at this time of year for the blessings in my life. I feel so blessed to have some wonderful friends! These girls are two of my favorites...

Hollie and Trish and I were, at one time, attached at the hip! Trish and I have been friends since college and she was my roommate for three years before I moved here and Hollie, her and I were constantly together - hanging out, vacationing, laughing in the good times and even crying during some hard trials! We were reunited this weekend and it was a blast. Something about these two...we live far but they are always near in my heart and when we're together it feels like we pick up right where we left off!

One of my faves!

Morning coffee together...just like the old days!

See Tricia's cute almost six month pregnant belly? Can't wait to see that 'lil boy!

Love you girls...THANK you for making the trip. It means more to me than you'll ever know!

Instead of telling you the gory (pun intended) details of the day - don't worry no blood, only tears (not just from my kids eyes!) I'll just show you the cute pics and how we ended the day...happily ever after!

The Princess and her Pumpkin!

Impossible to get one of both of them looking at the camera

I love the cozy baby costumes

Liv and one of her best buds Micah

Honestly, I do love the fall, but I'm not so hot for Halloween! I'm happy when it's over because then it seems we're full speed ahead until Christmas...let the holiday season begin!
