Hi-- Not much to report. I love Halloween. Addie is going as a bunny and Eli as a frog. Addie assumes and expects the adults to dress up as well, so we will be joining in the festivities on Sunday night. I love trick-or-treating :)
My brother, Jeff, just landed his first commercial for State Farm Insurance. Yes, he will be singing, "Like a good neighbor..." :) I couldn't be more excited for him! What an opportunity and a huge foot in the door to 'making it big'!!!
I carved my first intricate/challenging/detailed/cool-looking-pumpkin this morning. It was supposed to be a family affair, but it ended up B and the kids downstairs and me carving in the kitchen. I think I was taking too much time. Pics to come!
Dance started this week for me-- I have 24 girls on the team this year, and I absolutely love it! Feeling like I have a purpose again (besides raising my kids, yes, I know... ). ;)

Went to MN Zoo yesterday with friends. A beautiful day and the kids were great! Today we drove to Duluth and got to meet baby Georgia-- she is so tiny and so perfect. Addie and the girls had a great day together. The drive home was long :( My friend, Ali, is in labor as I write this... looking forward to meeting her little girl. Finally, and most importantly, B comes home tomorrow and him and I get to go on a date this Friday!! Dinner and a movie- I CAN'T WAIT!!! (the little joys in life!)

We've had an eventful week! My coaching position starts a week from Monday, so I am trying to do some fun outings this week and next. This week we went out for ice cream, visited a park every day, jumped in leaves, and took a trip to Como Zoo. A fun-filled week!! B comes home tonight :) Yeah!

These pics are from the lame apple orchard we went to last Friday. Nice to be all together, but no apples, hardly any animals, and a billion kids on field trips!
Got to meet my friend, Ana's little girl today- Aria. Just beautiful and precious!!
My kiddos have croup. Yucka. Pretty good during the day, but the nights (and early mornings) are a bit tougher.
Learning and continuing to trust in God in all areas of my life. I love my job. I adore my kids. I am truly embracing this stay-at-home-mom thing. But I really miss my husband. We were hoping there was an end in sight to his traveling, but it's looking like it will be a while longer. Just trusting that God has a bigger plan.

The highlight of my week today-- spent the day with the Marsh crew at the 101 Market.
The kids had a blast!

Hi all! It's been awhile... just a bit to report...

Eli is walking! All over the place. Super cute -- he's very proud of himself!!

Addie is still LOVING preschool! Best decision I've ever made!

My parents are still in Hawaii. So jealous.

My friend Natalie just had a baby girl- little Georgia June. Can't wait to meet her!

Dance season is right around the corner and I can't wait to start coaching :)

I'm running my first 10K with Brandt tomorrow morning!

And there are some big changes for our family just around the corner-- stay tuned-- (not a baby ya'll) !
