I haven't blogged in such a long time, but this time of year makes me just want to savor and record every moment of these beautiful, cozy days! We have had a fun fall season! We enjoyed Neewollah, and Trick-or-Treating on Halloween! Asher dressed up as Captain Rex from Star Wars Rebels and Claire was Hello Kitty! Katie did an amazing job with her marching band in the parade, and they received a 1 at the marching band competition that afternoon! She absolutely loves being part of the drum line! We've been rakin' up huge piles of leaves! I'm not sure how it happens, but every leaf in the neighborhood ends up in our yard! I've been trying to hold off on decorating for Christmas, and just spend some time enjoying the last of the fall pretties, but it's taking a lot of self control! I love Christmas decorating, it's just my favorite! Speaking of self control, I have not had much in the food/eating department, but yesterday I started over, and I'm so thankful for God's mercies being new every morning! He is so good to give me such an amazing life...my kids and my husband are the best blessings God could have ever given me!
Hello! Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you will grab a cup of coffee or a glass of iced tea and stay a while! I started this little blog in 2005 and am amazed sometimes to look back and see God's hand, his blessings and his mercy in the course of these last 11 years! He has truly blessed our family beyond measure! My husband Kris and I have been married for 18 years and we have three amazing kiddos, Katie, Asher, and Claire! I enjoy homemaking, crafting, trying new recipes, and mostly just being a "mama" all while on a super tight budget! Please feel free to browse through our archives! I hope you'll leave with a new idea or just a bit of joy! Thanks again for visiting!
