Outdoor Fall Fun

Fall is my favorite time of year!!!
It is full of all the things that make me happy. 

Hoodie Weather, Falling leaves, bon fires, smores, apple picking, pumpkin picking ... on and on and on.

I was so excited yesterday when Aaden and I went out in our backyard to play.


I didn't plan to take any pictures, but once I saw the cool colors with the cool boy I decided why not. I'm really thankful now I pulled out the camera.

What a ham our precious blessing is.

Blowing Kisses!

Look Mom!!


Underneath is hand painted umbrella by the lovely Angelina Fasano and her amazing business e*r*k. If you have some time take a look, she is amazing!

Walking the fence :)

I also couldn't help but snap a few photos of sweetie girl growing growing!
We are 26 weeks today!!!!!

Wow, time flies!
These were actually taken at our 20 week ultrasound.
I had this vision of Aaden holding up the awesome photos and it would be soooo cute.
Yea, didn't work. He just wanted to eat them.

Livi you are sooo beautiful.
Can't wait to kiss that sweet little face!

Office Makeover!!

Our home is a quaint little 3 bedroom with way to much stuff crammed into to tight of walls, but it is overflowing with love. It is our home! The home where we brought home our first baby, and now the place where we will bring home our second baby.

So, the "not-often-used" kitchen appliances in the hall closet, and pantry items in the garage shelving unit are just part of the package. Truth is, I am blessed.

I am blessed with an amazing Godly husband, space to raise my beautiful children, food to eat, water to drink, family that care understands and reaches out to help, and LOVE. Loads and loads of love.

What more could a woman want????

When we learned we were pregnant with Olivia, I always knew my office would become her bedroom. It just makes sense. So now my office is being uprooted into the living room. It makes for an interesting setup of a lot of furniture, but it will be fully functioning. Praise the Lord for his goodness!!!

Here are a few pictures, GASP!

The beginnings of moving everything off the shelves, moving the shelving unit before the good got put back on said shelf.  :) Yes, it is a crazy mess, but from this mess will be a masterpiece, thus why I'm okay with showing it off right now.

In the next few days everything on the floor will go back into the bookshelf we moved into the living room, and the other bookshelf will be moved ... somewhere ;)

A nursery for our precious daughter is only a week away ... Than You Lord!

Walk to End Alzheimer's

My sweet Grandma Nomalee is suffering from Alzheimer's Disease. It has been heartbreaking for my family. Daily I struggle with how I can personally make a difference in her future and the future of millions of people currently living with this horrific disease.

Walk to End Alzheimer's is amazing! I'm not sure the St. Louis Chapter has all their stuff together, but the concept of being able to walk with hundreds of other people all with the similar backgrounds is awesome. For once I didn't feel alone fighting this disease, but like many others are struggling as we struggle.

I walk to honor.
to support.
to end Alzheimer's.

I want For my Grandma Nomalee.

Thank you everyone who donated to our cause! I'm proud to be associated with you!!! I love you from the bottom of my heart.

Love you so much Grandma!
