meet bat girl…

IMG_8094Abby just headed off to her Halloween party at preschool. She was so excited and could not contain herself…there was lots of giggling, wiggling, squealing and jumping while I dressed her in her costume. Halloween can’t come quick enough for this little girl…it’s all she talks about!

Have a happy and safe Halloween!

p.s. Can you guess what Bubba's going to be?

we are headed to the pumpkin patch tonight…

this time of year always makes me reflect back on how we became a family and the miracle we are all together. the signs of fall remind me of when we:

got some exciting phone calls

had many sleepless nights

drove many miles

shed lots of tears

felt more joy than we felt our hearts could take

received so much love and support from so many

spent lots of time on our knees

met loved ones we knew – but had never met

truly felt the Lord’s hand in our lives

held our babies and became a family.

binksAnd I really should do away with his binky…but I just can’t!

I hate when I see big kids walking around with binkies…big pet peev.

And Boston’s becoming a big kid!!

Supernanny, Jo Frost, would be so disappointed in me.

But he’s my baby!

(last night he decided 2 binks were better than 1)
