Thanksgiving 2010

Yeah, I know I'm way behind in posting the happening around here. Life is fast paced now a days. It is a good life, just busy! :)
We had weekend guests during the holidays. Mike, Ellen, John, Hunter & Faith stayed here and we fixed a pretty good meal (even if I have to say so myself). It was so fun having them. Yes, it's a little cramped, but that makes it fun. So much in fact that they are coming from Christmas too! Molly & Lindy loved all the play time with their cousins.

On the last day of school the kindergarten grade had a big feast together. The girls were lady Pilgrims.

They got to line all their desks in the hall and eat a feast just like real Pilgrims & Indians.

A lot of napping and orneriness went on over the weekend.

I have to give it to Ellen for playing monopoly with the younger ones!!
The favorite game of the weekend was Uno.

Grandma napped as well. :)

National Adoption Month

November is
National Adoption Month!!

"....orphans are easier to ignore
before you know their names.

They are easier to ignore before you see their faces.

It is easier to pretend they're not real
before you hold them in your arms.

But once you do,
Everything changes!!"
David Platt

Molly & Lindy...
you girls are my world!!
I love you!

It's Fall!!!

I do believe we had Indian Summer
this past week. The girls
had a great time playing outside.

We love this time of year.
I would be happy if it were like this
all the time.
But, ole man winter is just
around the corner.

Pumpkin Patch

A few weeks ago we visited the
Pumpkin Patch in Fairfield.
Mamaw came with us and we had a great time.

The hay ride was a little dusty!

It stopped at the patch and the kids picked their own pumpkins.
They really enjoyed that.

Running through the kids maze was a big hit.

Met another Asian princess, Destiny.

We couldn't resist this fall display downtown.

Sept-Oct Happenings

So much going on. I feel like I'm
meeting myself coming and going these days.
The girls have settled into school nicely.
They love going, but I sure miss them.

Reading with Aunt Donna

The girls love going to AWANA on Wednesday nights.
I am amazed how quickly they can
memorize the verses.
I am enjoying a womens Bible study at the same time.

Lindy- showing off her artwork and
the Pillow Pet her mamaw gave her.

Molly is proud of hers also.

Halloween 2010
Molly is Jessi from Toy Story
Lindy is Dorthy from Wizard of Oz.

Check out their trees in the
hallway at school.

Playing with friends at burger king.
Ally & Addy (yes they are twins)

Went to Church with mamaw & papaw.

It's a busy time but I'm lovin it.
Well.. sometimes maybe I just like it!!
But I go to bed every night and count the blessings
God has provided me.

Summer... Cont.

I'm doing some backtracking here.
The month of August has flown by.
So many changes in our house.
My babies are starting kindergarten
and I am starting a job!
So, on the last free day before school and work started
the girls and I spent the day in Evansville.
I had their pictures taken.
(see previous post)

Then we had ice cream at
Cold Stone Creamery.
The girls had not had it before.

I'm pretty sure they liked it!

We hit a few stores in the mall. They each
picked out some really cool slippers for winter.

And of course they had to play in the play area.
Always a fun stop to make.
We ended the afternoon with a meal at the food court
and a ride on the carousel.
Tomorrow is meet the teacher day and I start my job.
I will be working at a new restaurant here in town.
The Nostalgia.
I will be serving tables!
(yikes, I've never done it before)
And taking my turn washing dishes.
I've actually been at it for a few weeks now.
At first I was a total mess of nerves. But as
in any job, you get used to it.
So far I am only working three days a
week and I am off each day
in time to pick the kids up from school.
I am excited that I found something
that fits the time frame that I
wanted to work.
And school is going good as well.
The girls like their teacher and so far
they have been ready and willing to get moving each day.
The Lord has blessed me
so much in my life.
And once again He has came through again!

Fun at the Park

A good friend, Krista and her mom Gloria, was in town to see a friend of theirs. We were able to meet them at the park for a little play time before their lunch date.

This cutie pie is Porter. He is a very busy boy.
He loved the rocks.

Kaley, Molly & Lindy

(she's 5 too)

Porter was not into pictures today.
Who can blame him, it was HOT!

We are glad they called and wanted to play for a bit.
