Sometimes I can't handle...

how cute my boys are!

They literally melt my heart.

The Pumpkin Patch...

is a family tradition.

Like many: we fought the crowds, frowned over $5 rides down a tiger slide and this year it was hot...

who wants a hot pumpkin patch in fall?

Not I.

But the boys have so much fun.

And we have fun watching them and creating our family memories.

And this year we had all our friends there...

AND big daddy fisher was playing in his blue grass band...

so it was extra special.

Happy Fall!

While waiting to have my ultrasound done, we wandered into a arcade.

Which had this game...


And it's for sale.

Feed Big Bertha could be yours.
And when you throw food in her mouth...her belly gets bigger. Bonus.


We read a story and they made their very own caterpillars.
Ayden and his best friend had so much fun.

1 & nesting

(this picture is in honor of Halloween & my love for Reese's Peanut Butter Cups)

Well friends I am at a 1!!! Eeeee!

Without going into all the specifics...I'm pretty sure you know what the 1 means.

Which is... we are well on our way to brining our beautiful boy into this world!

I don't think I could be anymore excited!!!


I've been nesting like a mad woman!

If you feel like organizing, come over and keep me company!

A safe place

35 weeks pregnant...
and life has really made a drastic shift in our family.

Right now, my ever ballooning body and tired mind is carrying a pretty heavy load.
I have my family on my shoulders, determined to make it through this rough spot.

I believe every family goes through these times.
Times where your partner needs your shoulder to lean on, to be their rock.
Where you see them vulnerable and open.
In need of so much love and understanding.
A safe place.

When I said my vows before my husband, before God...that is what I promised.

"In sickness and in health...
To love and to cherish..."

I question my strength though, but would never say that to him.
I am not the strongest person in the world.
I would be the squirrel in the forest full of bears.

But this squirrel will do everything in her power not to let anything happen to her family.
