Life lately has been sweet.
This is our favorite time of the year, and we’re doing our favorite things…so, it’s been extra special!
Ashby is nine days post op and still doing great! We’re anxious for the doctors to remove the dressings and cast so she can get her mobility back…but she’s not letting any of this stop her. This girl has such a fiery spirit! Nothing is going to get her down :).
Speaking of which…look at Miss Cutie Pie! My heart.
And then there’s this. She’s mad at me because I wouldn’t let her have candy corn for breakfast. #kidproblems
On Monday, the big kids didn’t have school because it was conference day. Each kiddo and their parents get a 20 minute teacher conference in lieu of class. Here we are waiting to go into Kensington’s class. I love having my older two home all day! It made me wish for summer!
After their conferences, I took the kiddos to lunch. This boy has my heart.
The bakery department at our grocery store was selling these Halloween sugar cookie kits, so I picked one up for an after dinner treat. We headed out to the driveway to enjoy the nice weather and to decorate (it’s been in the low 60s at night).
This girl was all about the decorating!
These two are crazy :).
On Tuesdays, I pick Bowen and Ashby up from school and then head to get the big kids (and meet Erika). These two are so sweet together! I gave them both a drink, and Ashby was holding it in her cast-free hand…well, Bowen kept saying, “give me a high five Ashby” and finally she looked at him and said “I got one arm Bo”. That made me laugh :). Sweet girl is trying to keep up but she can’t hold and drink and high five her best friend at the same time. #castproblems
Later that night at the big boys’ baseball game, they helped Meagan feed her new baby. Meagan and her family are in the foster to adopt program and they have the sweetest three month old baby now…that we’re all praying they get to keep forever. I have several friends who have been a part of the foster to adopt program and to me, they’re super heroes. I’ve learned from watching them all that fostering is not for the faint of heart. These are amazing families willing to give so much of themselves even though they’re not guaranteed to get to keep these kids.
Here we all are watching our boys play baseball. Love these ladies!
Yesterday, Smith had a field trip to the pumpkin patch! It was his first field trip and even more importantly…his first time riding a big yellow school bus :).
I love getting one on one time with my kiddos :).
Well, that’s life lately!
Since Halloween falls on a Saturday this year, I thought it would be fun to make a special breakfast…
…so whether you need one recipe for your family or several recipes because you’re inviting a crew over, my Spooktacular Breakfast is for you!
