We have been through a lot in our 2 years of marriage...and have a beautiful family today. Ryan is the best dad ever and I am so thankful for that! Our little Livi is SUCH a daddys girl and just lights up when he is with her. I know that Blake and Ryan will always be so close too!

Fall is my favorite time of year! I love the cool crisp weather, back to school, the routine, the food, the colors! I could go on and on.
We don’t have any traditions in our little family YET…but I look forward to many back to school traditions with the kids!
I am totally going to do this….
Do this at the 1st day of school each year...and then put them all together in a book for a graduation present....how cool would that me!?
I love this cute sign!
I did a whole post on this on Wednesday. Everything that I have been pinning has been for fall. I LOVE scarfs and boots. Give me some trouser jeans and a cute sweater and I will be all set! I am thinking about dying my hair a tinge darker for fall…and I may even get a little crazy and put a little auburn in there too!!
What do you do for Halloween/a Halloween Memory?
We had AWESOME Halloweens growing up. My memories of Halloween are some of my most vivid memories of my childhood! We lived in a perfect neighborhood for trick or treating. My dad would take my sister and I ALL around getting as much candy as possible. My mom stayed home and handed out candy to trick-or-treaters that came to our house.
I am excited for Halloween with Blake this year. This is the first year that he actually “gets” it. He is WAY excited and has decided that he wasn’t to be a pirate. I asked what he needed to be a pirate…he said “an eye patch”….”and a moustache”…..I told him that if that was his costume he would just be a creepy little man, so he needs a hat and an outfit too. He has been practicing his “trick-or-treat”, and I must admit he does sound pretty darn cute!!
Blake's 1st Halloween....
Blake's 2nd Halloween...
I love fall decorations. For the first time ever we grew our own pumpkins this year! It is fun to have so many to choose from. We grew little ones, gourds, HUGE ones, and perfect carving pumpkins too. I have a bunch on the porch now. I plan on painting some and letting Blake paint and carve others!
I also made a fall rag wreath! It’s pretty cute.
Mine is more of a fall wreath than a halloween wreath...but you can get the point here!
Things you are looking forward to for fall
I really look forward to all that afll brings…..the cool weather, cute clothes, food. Football, Halloween, changing colors. I am even looking forward to it getting dark earlier at night. There is just something cozy about fall….and best of all, it means that Christmas is just around the corner :)

I tried to take some pictures of him last night for this post.....talk about MAJOR fail. I didn't get one since good one. He is at that age where he is on the go, go, go. Actually...he has been at that stage for sometime now!!
He has moved up to the Tike room at school and has been doing GREAT with that transition. No issues at all. We are TRYING to work on potty training....but we are not succeeding. He will sit on the potty...but will not go in the potty. He says that he is scared! Hopefully he will get over that soon. I think that the diaper thing is mostly a security issue at this point.
He is SO lovey-dovey. Always kissing and hugging. I bet he gets that from us always loving up on him!!
He is a very social kid and gets along with anyone! He still does good with his baby sister. Since she is on the move now and into his things there is starting to be a little jealousy...but you can really reason with him, and he totally gets it!

Blake will be 3 in December, Ellen will be 2 in December, and Olivia will be 1 in December. It is CRAZY the difference a year makes at that age! Blake and Ellen had fun and did really good playing and interacting with each other, seeing that they rarely see one another!
--these pictures uploaded HUGE and are 1/2 cut off....I will try to fix them later!!

Blake has become very brave in the water! The swimming lessons paid off this year!!
We tried to get a goot pic of Blake and Ellen....pretty hard at this stage!
