Falling Leaves


So I love the Fall. I always have. Love the colors love the crisp mornings and how it warms up throughout the day. This year has been so much fun with the kids. The past few years the big trees just seemed like a lot of work when all the leaves fell off. This year was a different story. They loved coming outside with me to "help" me rake. I have to be honest they didn't really help that much with the raking but they did keep me happy while I worked. They have played for hours in the piles and piles of leaves. Most our neighbors have been done cleaning up their leaves for a while now but our tree loses its leavs late so we have been raking for the past week. I rake then come back out a couple of hours latter only to find a new layer for me. my neighbors are so nice they are always trying to give me any help they can. They have offered gadgets and bags. I see people drive by all the time and just laugh at the site of me with my three little kids all with rakes in hand just working away.
My little baby cakes is really starting to take off. She has been taking a step or two for the past month but now she is really getting daring. It is so cut to see her stand up in the middle of the floor and smile because she is so happy with her self. My little man is really doing well. he loves school and church. Well most the time. He did his first primary program a couple of weeks ago. He said "My Heavenly Father and Jesus love me." I think he had more moral support than any other kid. Ryan's parent came and so did my Mom and Kev. Elise was in town so she came with her crew too. I can't believe I have a Sunbeam. WOW. The middle marvel is the spark in my life. She has the sweetest voice you have ever heard. I ask her questions just so I can hear it. She love to draw more than any kid I have ever met. She always has a pen and paper in hand. the funny thing is that it has to be a pen. Nothing else will do. So that is what is up with us.

Even More Summer Pictures. Getting sick of them yet?

More Summer Pictures

Trip to Kentucky

I went to visit my little sister a couple of weeks ago. I got to take just the baby thanks to my mother in law and my great husband. I was only planning on being there for 5 days but we where having to much fun to come home so we stayed a few extra days. I have missed my sisters that have moved away so much. I love going places but I love being with my sisters more. Thanks so much mom for taking me on one of the best trips I have ever been on. I will never forget this trip. I am trying to figure out a time to go see my older sister next. I can't wait to see her new town and home too. FAMILY ROCKS!!!!

All the things I want to remember
"want being the key word"

So are little baby had her nine month check up last week. She is healthy as can be and the happiest thing ever. If she is awake you will usually see a smile on her chubby little face.
Weight 18 pounds 14 oz / 60%. Height 28 1/2 inches/ 65%. Head was 95% .
She learned how to crawl about a month ago. She also can go from her back and stomach to sitting up. She has started to eat all foods. Her favorite is when he big sis decides to share her treats with her. Favorite thing to say is dada and always with a big smile. The only time I ever hear mama is when she is crying in her crib. She is in that clingy mommy stage but I don't mind. However, as soon as she realizes she cant see me the screaming starts. Happy baby though. Super easy going and so snugly. These are the words that describe her right now: chill, easy going, happy, strong, determined, fun, adorable, loving.
My little Row is so funny. She is cute as can be and such a hoot. She makes me laugh so many times a day. She is talking in full sentences and you can understand almost everything she says. She has been really affectionate lately which I have just been eating up. She hugs and kisses all of us about 100 times a day. She has gotten really into what is hers. She is no pushover that is for sure. She points her finger at you and gives anyone who makes her mad a stern talking to.( I have no idea where she gets that one) She is really blossoming and learning so much. the words I would use to describe her right now would be; fun, energetic, loving, fire cracker, smart, beautiful, independent .
My little man is such a great guy. He is really a smart caring little guy. He is doing really well with the girls and with his friends. He is loving church so much. He has the best SUNBEAM teacher. Is that not the perfect name for that age of little tikes. They really are just a burst of sunshine. He can be a punk-a-dilly sometimes but you never have to ask him to say sorry. He always will do it on his own, well most of the time. He doesn't like to do anything without his side kick Row. The 2 of them do everything together. I hope that next year the 3 kids will just be the best of friends like the 2 of them are. Favorite thing to say is WHY? That is a love hate sort of thing. I love that he is curious and hate that everything takes about 10 times as long. Words to describe him are; cool, hilarious, cute, sweet, changing.
