Chihuly in the Forest

Crystal Bridges is a beautiful place that our community is so fortunate to have in our backyard. There has been an exhibit here for almost 6 months that I haven’t had a chance to see, and was DYING to. Dale Chihuly makes everything you see out of glass.  It’s truly amazing! I wanted to see it at night, because everything is lit up. Thankfully, I have an awesome hubby who agreed to take me. 

We went to eat at Eleven, the restaurant in Crystal Bridges, which was delicious and then saw the exhibit once it was dark.  I can honestly say it was one of my favorite date nights we’ve ever been on.

My Little Monsters

I just had to recap all the previous Halloween costumes that my kiddos have rocked over the years.  Time is flying and when I look back at these pictures, I just want it to slow down so they can stay little ;)


2013 - my little ladybug


2014 - my little pumpkin


2014 - my little pink elephant


2015 - my little lion

2015 - my banana split

2016 - my little spider

2016 - my little butterfly

2017 - my little choo-choo train

2017 - my sweet rainbow


Every year keeps getting better and better.

My Boo-tiful Babes

One of our neighbors offered to take pictures of the kids in their Halloween costumes, and I'm sad I haven't been doing this every year.  It was such a great idea, and I now have these professional pictures and memories to cherish forever. 

Let's be honest, the day will come when only gore and such will suffice as costumes, so this Mama is going to soak up the days that I get to choose their costumes and portray them as adorable, sweet little nuggets. Here is my little rainbow and train conductor...my two favorite trick-or-treaters.

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!
