Thankful Times Three

Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it. ~William Arthur Ward

I love this photo.
I love these three.
And I am so thankful that I'm their mother.

Here Comes The Snow

Our first light dusting of snow. Yee haw!

Here's some proof that my son is a 4th grader. He's too cool to dress warm.

Kaia on the other hand couldn't wait to put her snow pants on. I caught her stripped down to her underwear putting on her outerwear!

Little Helpers

I love this photo. Two of our three brown eyed helpers.

The other brown eyed girl was banished to her bedroom. For what you might ask? Being sassy, what else? 7 1/2 is the sassy age. 9 1/2 is the distracted age. 3 is the adorable, annoying, hilarious, naughty & sweet age.

We are trying to teach them to help. We're starting to make progress. I've noticed they immediately clear the table after supper now. They all like to help outside. Stacking wood is fun somehow. We're still working on the morning routine, but making progress. It's all good.

This And That In October

Why oh why must we stand here and smile? We need to get candy!!

OK, fine. Here's a smile. Kind of. Can we go now?

While the kids carved pumpkins I decided to bake some of my pie pumpkins. I cut this one open and found a ready made jack-o-lantern!

On one of my babysitting days the baby woke up while I was making supper and started fussing. When I had time I went to relieve Micah and found him doing his homework AND holding the baby. Maybe we should have had a 4th child!
