Trunk or Treat is so fun. It is nice to have a safe place for our children to "trick or treat" and it is fun to be able to hang out with all your friends in the process and be with all the kids you love so much (whether they are "yours" or not)!
The kids in our congregation have got to be the coolest kids around but I must say I am a little partial to a certain Titans Cheerleader and a very sweet Sweet Pea!
I am so behind!! Saturday we got to help celebrate Savannah's 2nd birthday! We had so much fun!
I love this series of pictures of the birthday girl! She was the princess of the day or maybe I should say the Minnie Mouse of the day - whatever! Big Brother Cole was so sweet! MY GIRL! She knows me so well. In the midst of chaos and business, she knows that if she hears me call her sweet name to look at me and just smile because I probably have a camera in my hand. Please let the record show that Bryan flirted with Hannah first!! Our sweet baby boy was there - just not quite in on all the action. Just wait until next year!
I just found out today that KMart is having a Double Coupon event this week!! I know this does not sound nearly as good as Triple Coupons at Harris Teeter but let me tell you a few things about KMart's event...
#1 They will double coupons up to $2!!
#2 If you have to buy diapers - their big boxes of diapers are on sale anyway so if you have a coupon it is even better!
#3 You can use up to 75 coupons in a transaction.
I am not going to show you how much I got and tell you how much it was because it will not seem that good since I bought BIG ticket items. Let's just say that I got 2 containers of formula, 2 boxes of wipes, and 4 packages of diapers plus lots more! I saved over $30 on items we would have to buy anyway!
If you have coupons that will not triple because they are $1 off or more, you may want to take advantage of this!!
Justus has been able to have a "real" bath for a couple of weeks now. Having to worry about getting the belly button wet / submerged can be a pain sometimes so we have been really excited. On top of that, Hannah has been asking to take a bath with Justus since, at least, a month before he was even born.
Needless to say, last week when we allowed Justus to take a bath with Hannah it was a great night for all of us.... Until Hannah realized that Justus was not that fun in the bath. Oh well, he will only get more and more fun as time goes on!
Oh, and by the way, Justus really likes his bath and, as you can see, is not a big fan of having to get out of it!
The carnival is this whole week and there are already over 600 people/blogs participating! WHOA! You should really check it out. People are only allowed to giveaway family friendly items so you shouldn't see anything dirty, and it has to be really free in order for them to participate. You are not allowed to say that someone wins something "free but they have to pay shipping" or "a % off of an item somewhere." Really Free and you do not have to have a blog account to enter most of the drawings!
Sparkle Factor is participating in this and doing 3 giveaways so be sure to check it out. (And if you want to do a little shopping while you are there - Go For It!)
This week Hannah got to wear her beautiful Halloween Dress that she got from her Uncle Mike and Aunt Susan. It was so cute and she was so excited to wear it.
Hannah has been in a little stage the last 6 to 8 weeks about being scared of things. I am pretty sure she had a terrible dream one night about the Chick-Fil-A cow trying to get her. Anyway, so I decided to just forget about trying to explain what a witch was even though there is one on her dress and it is definitely a nice witch!! The problem with that is that everyone who saw her today before or after worship asked her what was on her dress or told her that they liked the witch on her dress. She would just give me her "huh?" look and I would tell her to tell them it was her Halloween Dress. It was so cute because then she looked so excited, like she understood what they said or something and proudly told her it was her Halloween Dress!! It was funny!
Justus, in the last 4 or 5 days has decided the times between 6am and 9am are his fussy times. That did not do well for Sunday pictures. He was a little upset that after he FINALLY got peaceful and asleep I woke him up and gave him to his sister and made him take pictures with her. (I think the last 3 series of pictures speak for themselves - Please note the location of the pacifier in each!)
Saturday we went to a birthday party at a farm. It was so fun. I had never been to Gentry's Farm before but I can guarantee you that we will be going every year from now on if we can. Here are just some of the things we found on Saturday at Gentry's Farm that are fun!! (I took over a hundred pictures so bare with me on trying to narrow them down!)
A Pumpkin Patch
Fun Daddys These 2 sweet chicks love each other's Daddys so much - it is cute!
And Great Photo Ops
Thank you, Willa for inviting us to your party and introducing us to Gentry's Farm. We had SO much fun celebrating with you!
We went to a birthday party at a farm on Saturday (more pictures of that later) and before we left I wanted to get some pictures of Hannah in her overalls and hat. We started taking pictures of all her "faces" and this is what we got....(if you make it bigger, I put what face it was on each of the pictures) I told you we had fun with the camera this weekend!
I am a Christian woman with the most wonderful husband. He is the absolute perfect man for me. I also have a beautiful daughter and a handsome son. We are blessed! Our family, daily, tries to do God's will and live as He would want, following the example of His Son, Jesus Christ.
