Fall and Thanksgiving!

We have had a great fall! We've had some days of really cold weather, and then days of sun and warm weather; regardless, as long as it's warm "enough", Hudson and I will go outside in the afternoons for a few minutes to play. He has enjoyed playing in the leaves and collecting them.

For Thanksgiving we went to Charleston for a few days to spend some quality time with my family. We were all there, which was wonderful. Now that the kids are getting bigger, it's so much fun to watch them play together! Henry is 3, Hudson is 15 months and Eliza is 13 months - and they had a ball together! It was great!

Hudson got to ride in a bike for the first time - and LOVED it! My Dad found this awesome seat on Amazon, and it has been a huge hit! Even though it was cold out, and the wind was in his face, Hudson did not want to get off. 
 He actually wanted to keep the helmet on after his ride!
Enjoying a snack with sweet Eliza. These two were so funny to watch together. She's small, but fierce, and wouldn't let the boys get in her way at all!
 Tire swing with Gigi at the park.
 And Eliza.
 Swinging with Papa.

My Mom cooked an amazing dinner, too! And my Dad smoked one of the turkeys on his Big Green Egg, which I heard was pretty much amazing! Everything was great, and we enjoyed Thanksgiving leftover sandwiches and pizza in meals to follow! :)

We had a great time, and it's so much fun with the little kids now! Yes, things are way different than they were in years past, but it's definitely a good different! Next we will be together for Christmas, and I can't wait to see what God has for us then!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween, and FALL!

We are enjoying the cooler weather and warm hot chocolate! We even had a fire this morning in the fire place!

Hudson still loves being outside! At school, one of his teachers tells me almost every day that as soon as she says "Line up, it's time to go outside", Hudson drops whatever he's playing with and gets in line with the other kids at the door! And then when they say it's time to go back inside, he "runs" the opposite direction back to the playground! He just loves being outside! Which I love, too!

He takes his mowing very seriously. 

We went back to the pumpkin patch this year. He definitely enjoyed it more this year since he could walk around and play in the little play yard they had set up! The horse tire swing was a favorite.

Our pumpkin he helped pick out. He wanted so badly to be able to pick it up! 
 My two handsome guys! I'm so blessed. 

We went to Nashville to celebrate my Dad's birthday and my niece's first birthday. It was a great weekend with family, and Hudson's first visit to Nashville. I just wish we all lived closer! Hudson had a great time playing with Eliza and Henry!

Halloween was good. Hudson was a scarecrow. We took him around to a couple of the houses on our street, but he's still too young to really walk around or even to eat candy, so we didn't do much. 


God Bless
