35 Y/O wife to Tim and mom to Emma,Noah,Caleb, Stella and 2 babies in Heaven.Trying to walk in the path of the Lord and carrying my family with me. I love our 1902 home we purchased more 10 years ago. It is constantly evolving and goes through whatever changes my little heart desires. I love vintage treasures and I'm always on the hunt for them! My hope is that this blog will be a constant scrapbook for my family and home,a place to make new friends and just somewhere to lay out my thoughts,even if they aren't beautiful or inspiring.

Because I feel like it.....

This post is being written aimlessly. Meaning I don't really have any one topic I wanted to share but just felt like writing. Record what's been going on......

 For starters, I think it's safe to say that the new Avett Bros. album is my current soundtrack. I've been listening to it just about every day for the past 3 weeks. I can't get enough of it!

I have it on when I'm cooking,cleaning,crafting........swapping. I've discovered Swap-Bot and now I'm hooked!

The weather has cooled down considerably but I'm still waiting for that urge to cook. I just don't have it in me. I haven't even made chocolate chip pumpkin bread yet! What???

So hard to believe that it's October. Our littlest girl will be 2 next week and our other little girl will be a teenager. Again......What??

 She was able to get her iPhone tonight. I found the cute case for her at 5 Below and she's even mastered Instagram. We are letting her have a party here at the house (pray for us!!)

The women in my family did the NOCC Walk again. I guess I hid when this picture was taken?

A lot of my time lately has been at church. I don't think I can stress enough how much I adore our church. I started going about about a year ago. Tim joined me just recently and is even going to small group with me. Emma is involved with the youth group. All these years we had a great church right in our own back yard. I have never know such warm people. It feels good to be involved and to see my kids have friends they know from both church and school. Love it!

 A few weeks back was our church picnic. Who's that? Jill! Yep,my friend Jill and her family go there too!

Check out who finally got a haircut :
 We really had to coax him into it. He has picture day on Friday and now he look's so handsome!

And this sweet girl. I LOVE spending my days with her. She is just so sweet. She gives the best hugs and each one reminds me of how much I wanted her. Desperately wanted another baby and the hard road it took to have one. Her smile and tiny little voice reminds me of God's faithfulness.
I'm so,so blessed! And how adorable is she in that dress? I'm gushing....I know......

I need a current picture of my Caleb! He's doing so well in Kindergarten. His teacher say's hes a good boy who is eager to please and that the other kids really like him. Yay!!! I accompanied them on a trip to the library last week and I will go to the Pumpkin Patch with them next week. I live to do this Mama stuff!

Well I have some SERIOUS catching up to do for my womens Bible study. We were away this weekend and I'm still not in the groove and tomorrow is Wednesday :( The kids stayed home yesterday and Tim stayed home today totally throwing me off. This house is a wreck and I have 3 parties within 6 days starting the weekend after next. Pray for me!
