One thing that I love about Alabama is the awesome blue sky and mild weather. On nice days like this one we often with go down to Bridge Street to see the fountains and this horse.

Now that Noah is in Pre-K he got to go on a field trip with the kindergarten class-bus and all! I put my name in the hat to be a chaperone, and was excited to find out my name got drawn. This first field trip was to constitution village. It was so much fun! The kids got to see how a blacksmith would make tools, make candles, scarecrows and milk a prevent cow. The best part of going was watch noah interact with all of his friends. I am so thankful for the opportunity to get to do this with him!

October 30th- We held a Family Fall Festival at our church this year, which is how we celebrated Halloween. Thankfully, the weather was amazing! Which was a good thing because there was no trick-or-treating the following day due to rain. The kids enjoyed sporting their costumes-Maleah a purple princess and Noah, spiderman. They did crafts, games and collect loads of goodies. Goodies, which they diligently saved for the candy fairy. Noah was very determined that the fairy would bring him a BIG gift if he didn't eat any candy...
…which, she did! Both kids were pleasantly surprised to find an awesome Nerf gun in the place of their big buckets of candy. Way to go Candy Fairy!

I love how this girl with her ever so colorful personality brightens even the sunniest day! She is becoming her very own with lots of giggles, smiles and clever sayings. She is a diva with a twist of tom boy. She loves pink, shoes and hair bows but they must never get in her way of digging in the dirt for worms or playing cars with big brother. She will pick a salad over anything at meal time and chomp bubble gum in between. Don't be fooled by her sweet smile and lovely locks, this girl can give you a run for your money when it comes to her strong will. She is defiant, creative and enchanting. We feel so blessed to be alongside of her watching her grow everyday.

October 12, 2013-This year was an especially exciting harvest season because we got to celebrate as a WHOLE family! I know I say this all the time, but a family unit is such a special thing. Making memories is so much more fun with Dave being here. To carry on tradition we took the kids to Tate Farms to pick our pumpkins. We rode the hayride out to the field and the kids were released to pick their perfect pumpkin, which will later be turned into mama's perfect pumpkin pie and breads. I love how both kids picked big pumpkins that were just to their size. Maleah at one point decided she needed two...

On a fine warm fall afternoon, we took a stroll through fairytale garden...
