Fall Leaves, Autumn Breeze

Fall is my favorite time of year!!  The weather starts to cool down, the leaves start to change, football is on the big screen, my 'leaves' candle is lit, and I know that the holidays are just around the corner.  I. LOVE. IT.  

The temperature hasn't dropped very much yet, but I think it's just around the corner.  Here's a few random things we've been up to :)

We went to the Zac Brown Band concert with Chad and Amanda and had THE BEST time!!  He is an awesome performer, and the company was fabulous.

The kiddos are playing soccer with Happy Feet this season.  It's been...lets say...a learning experience.  Some Saturdays they want to play, and some they don't? I think it's been good for them though. :/

We went to Chuck E. Cheese for the first time...EVER.  Ella Shelby had her birthday party there and our children will never be the same. ;)  They LOVED it! Reese has already asked for her birthday party to be there next year. 

And here are a few pictures before church on Sunday.  I LOVE this time of year.  

We are getting SO excited for Halloween and all the fun that comes with it!

Cutest Pumpkins in the Patch

Despite it being 85 degrees on Sunday, our life group had a fantastic time at the Pumpkin patch in Pea Ridge. We all joke that every year we go, it gets hotter.  Where is that October fall weather? We went to McGarrah Farms this year and it did not disappoint.  I cannot wait to go back in December to see the Christmas tree farm. We are thankful every day for this special group of people that we get to do life with.  They're all pretty amazing!

Race for the Cure

We had the best time running in the Race for the Cure in Tulsa. We established a team for Lindsay and Kelli, and there were 51 of us who participated in this event.  It's hard for me to put into words how much these people mean to me.  Lindsay and Kelli are fighting a difficult battle, and it is an honor to fight next to them.  Our shirts said, Faith*Family*Friends, and that is just how we choose to prioritize. I have faith that our Lord is going to heal Lindsay and Kelli, and in the process he is going to do great things through them to glorify His name. 

It was a blessing for all of us to be together to support these precious ladies, and I always say that my greatest earthly blessing is my family. I never doubt that if I needed anything, they would all be right by my side. It's pretty awesome to say we had the BIGGEST team there. What a fun day of togetherness for a great cause!
