It’s so lame to start all of our family posts like this but SERIOUSLY, where does the time go? I think about being 30 and I feel like my life has flown by so far. I can’t imagine how my parents feel when they look at me and remember my birth or me being small and here I am… 30! And although Charlotte has only been on this planet for 3 years it’s gone by so fast!! I remember her being born and now she carries on conversations with us and has her own little opinions! Anyway, all I’m trying to say to myself and to you is to soak it all up. This time we have goes by so quickly and everything is constantly changing. I’m trying desperately to be in the moment with my kids. To snuggle Riley as much as I can before those horrible days come when my kids are embarrassed to be be seen with me. To listen intently to Charlotte and jot down the cute things she says so that I never can forget them. Ahhhh, being a parent is such a mix of blessing and struggle but I wouldn’t trade it for a thing and Matt and I are so blessed to have people walking this journey with us.

Halloween is NOT my favorite holiday but it is pretty darn cute to see my kids faces light up seeing ALL the pumpkins at the Pumpkin Patch!! They had the best time wandering around and touching everything. Charlotte did not care for the scarecrows and she had her first traumatic porta-potty experience which was pretty hilarious. (long story, short: she went in there and froze, said that it was too icky and had to hold it because we couldn’t flush all the icky stuff away. I was laughing hysterically and then we headed straight to the golden arches to find a white, water filled toilet).
The kids loved dressing up and especially loved trick-or-treating with their little friends. They are quite the bunch! We had a great time and the kids loved every minute!! How was your Halloween? Next time we post something personal it could very well be the birth of our third so please keep us in your prayers :)

    1) That pumpkin patch is post-apocalyptic!

    2) Riley really does look like Charlie Brown!

    3) Charlotte’s index finger inevitably made it up one of her nostrils in mid-picture…shocker!
