Today, I am thankful for the things that aren't always obvious.
Thank you, God, for.... *children that have colds and fevers. But healthy and strong and have access to medicine. *feeling such a burden on my heart to pray and hope for our friends. *feeling physically worn out at the end of each day...because I've been so busy doing what I love. *for the freezing wind because it reminds me that we've been given such an amazing place to call home. *for the stuff of life that is too much to walk through....because the beauty of a community of imperfect people coming together and loving like we should is miraculous. *for a baby that keeps me up during the night....because I get to hold her. I will never take this for granted. *for the laundry I am never caught up on and the house that is downright disgusting. We have clothes to keep us warm and space to let things go!
I have a fresh new look...don't you love it?! Me too:) Serious kudos to my amazing friend, Jenn @ Munchkin Land Designs.
I love her designs...but I love HER even more. Check her out...:)

For the first time ever,we had family pictures taken! Here is one sample...such a tease, I know:) This is a favorite because it looks like our real life...except prettier! A good photographer can do that sort of thing. More to come...
I only have a minute to post this one picture from Halloween. More to come, I hope. My kids were super-darling. Of course:) But I was crazy busy and I didn't take pictures. This one comes courtesy of my sister. Here is our little cheerleader...
We had a skeleton, batman, and....Hollyn had TWO costumes....:) She was a cheerleader for Team R****** for the Halloween party inside and she was the cutest little bunny rabbit for trick or treating.
I so love Halloween. I think I just like the excuse to dress up my children in cute outfits and eat chili with friends and family:)
