How is it October?

My life is flying by!  I can't believe that it is October and the holidays are just around the corner!


Remember the Trot to Adopt?  I was raising money for some friends to bring home their baby girl from China.

Guess who enjoyed a popsicle in my backyard recently....


I just love adoption.  It is such a beautiful picture of what God has done for us in Christ.  We were once without a hope in the world and He brought us into His family.  He adopted us as sons and daughters and made us heirs...a beautiful picture of the gospel!


Sweet friends...




So, just to keep it real I decided to try and capture the disarray of my home most days...




By the way...LOVE my slipcovered couches.  Yes, I know they are white and I have 6 of the dirtiest children on the planet.  A run through the wash with bleach and they are like new!! 

I just would like to pat myself on the back for that healthy Little Ceasar's and Pepsi dinner we had this night... 


Someone has decided to decorate quite a few of the walls in my house with crayons....*sigh*


Sometimes you just have to send the kids outside and lock the door and then just ignore them when they come and press their noses on the glass!  I should buy stock in Windex...


Football season is ending soon.  Jackson's team has their last game this Saturday.  They are ranked #3 in their group! (There are only 3 teams in their group...:)


Aaron's team has done really well, only losing 1 game.  They are heading to the playoffs next weekend.  The FUNNIEST thing ever is to watch how excited Aaron gets on the field.  It doesn't matter if he was in on a play or 20 yards away,  I can promise you he will be celebrating and carrying on.  Christian and I have an idea that he practices in front of the mirror or something....
