Happy Halloween!

Nicolaus and Carleigh dressed as Hansel and Gretel for Halloween this year. Nicolaus wore the Liederhosen which were John's when he was little and Carleigh's nanny sewed her beautiful dress. They are so cute I just want to eat them up! Does that make me the wicked witch of the tale?

Things I'd Love to Blog About

...if I could only find the time!

1.  Grace Based Parenting. A book by Dr. Tim Kimmel and a class I am taking at WCOG. The class leader Jennifer Miller has a great Blog. Check it out!

2.  My tug-of-war with a certain 15 lbs

3.  All the knit and crochet projects I have planned

4.  Our visit to the pumpkin patch

5.  My Tuesday morning Bible Study. Oh what would I do without Women in the Word and their Little Hearts program which watches the kids during those three awesome hours?

6.  Toddler tantrums

7.  Making applesauce

8.  How I feel about the passing of my latest birthday

9.  My personal style...or lack thereof

10.  All the amazing things my kids are learning (and teaching me)

Steppin Out Saturday - An Oldie But Goodie

Shirt: JCrew
Jeans: Ann Taylor Loft (even though you can't see them)
Earrings: Ann Taylor (I think)
Bracelet: Pandora

My mom took the kids and I out for lunch in celebration of my 32nd birthday. In my Fall clothes storage box I happened upon this JCrew wool shell from ages ago. I forgot how much I loved it! And aside from my engagement ring and wedding band, my Pandora bracelet is my favorite piece of jewelry. Each charm means so much, stands for a part of my life.
