Eight years have flown by. I feel so blessed by my marriage. We've been through good and bad, as every marriage has. We've experienced so much happiness and extreme heartbreak...together. Marriage is something we will always have to work on and I think that's the beauty of it. Marriage is a little bit of everything I thought it would be and I'm so thankful to be married Brent! I probably take for granted too often that he is such a great husband and a great daddy. So, thank you, Brent, for being those things :) Thank you, God, for putting us together.
If you aren't following Every Day Cheer, check it out :) We are going to have some great holiday posts coming soon! I'm loving all the things the other girls post so much! Last week, I shared some super cute kids' jammies on my spree for new ones. You can see the jammies and info here.
We had our first pumpkin patch day yesterday! The kiddos had so much fun. We went as a field trip with their pre-school. They really got into it more this year. My phone died so I didn't get many pics. I actually did take my "real" camera, so I got a few with it.
I'm so excited to join the Netflix Stream team! I'll have some fun things coming to the blog soon with that! :)
Do you all watch Netflix? We love it around here :)
Oh, and speaking of Netflix. Knox & Sloane are LOVING Peppa right now. Last night I decided I totally don't mind watching Peppa if I'm getting to look at the pumpkins :)
And for those of you who ordered pre-order nativities in Feb, they are here and you will see them soon! YAY :)
I'm still on the hunt for an iPhone 6. No run in town has them and hasn't for a few weeks. I think I'm going to have to give in and order one. I don't know why I like the idea of just going and buying it better.
On Saturday, Sloane and I had a few hours shopping together and it was so fun. It also made me realize that I really don't do one-on-one often enough with Knox & Sloane. I want to get better at making a point to spend time with each of them separately.
Our mission was to find her a ballerina costume because that's what she wants to be for Halloween :)
I had seen an outfit, randomly, when I was in Whole Foods last week, so that was our first stop. She loved the outfit. I explained she could do "real" ballet clothes or a costume and she opted for a costume. It was love at first sight with this costume ;)
As soon as we walked in, the florist gave her a rose. Quite fitting since for Sloane Rose :) She loves the mini shopping cart and she loves flowers so she wanted to look at them all.
I basically just let her walk up and down the aisles. She was having so much fun looking at things. She asked me for a few things and, of course, I said yes :) Had I had more room on my phone, I would have taken video because her little walk when pushing that cart was priceless.
We took my mom's car because Brent and Knox were in mine. Brent uses his car for business so he doesn't typically leave carseats in it. When we got in the car, she pulled her costume out and just looked and smiled. It was sweet. We then grabbed lunch and ran one or two more places.
She also decided she wanted me to be a ballerina with her, so naturally I said yes. Did I mention we had a Halloween party Saturday (that) night? All four of us went. Brent was looking for a costume as well, and we already had Knox's. Anyways, I had no idea where to get "grown up" ballet attire. So, I figured I'd try the girls section at Walmart. Thankfully, they had one and it worked. I opted for black with black tights. Sloane had a pink tutu that I could get over my hips. It was rather tight, but I made it work, too. I actually wore two because both of them were really thin ones. Basically I feel like I looked ridiculous, but it was worth it ;)
OH, and I don't think I've posted since Sloane got glasses! She's not wearing them full-time at this point, but I'll do a post on that soon.
