Okay friends, I have decided to start a new blog!  I have been having MAJOR trouble trying to upload pictures to this one and just don't want to waste any more time trying to figure it out.  Family members, as well as friends have been asking me about my recent "lack of blogging", so now there are no excuses!  I will admit, I did get tired of keepingup with it, but have really missed documenting those memories most important to me.  SO, let the blogging begin...again. :)

Come visit me at my new home...

Layer Cake Designs

Okay, so this is not a new post about my girls, and I know it has been way too long, but I wanted to share an awesome blog that a friend of mine from high school just started!  Not only does she have a blog, but she also has an etsy store where she shares some of her creativity.  Super cute things!!! 

Check her blog out here and then head on over and look at her fun things in her etsy shop!  Even better, she is giving away a $50 gift card to Target just for being a reader!!! Now, go enter for your chance to win too. :)

Halloween Happenings 2010

Well, since I am SO FAR behind on blogging these days, our many Halloween festivities will be a post all in one! Few words, but many pictures.  :) :)

We took a trip to Arkansas with Zach's parents to kick off the season.  The leaves were turning and the colors were beautiful!  We also took the girls to a  "real" pumpkin patch.  They enjoyed the hay ride, the petting zoo, and picking out their own pumpkins!

Next up was our Fall Festival at church.  This is always a good time for us.  We are truly blessed to have such a huge group of friends in our church family.  Love that it has such a "small town feel" to it, and our girls are growing up with what we hope to be life long friends!


Something we always look forward to each year is our annual Halloween baby get together!  We have made it a point to do this each year since our first's were born.  It's so fun to see how much they have all changed in the past few years.  Thanks for hosting Taren and Cam!

My sister hosted their neighborhood party this year, so our Halloween day and evening were full of fun things to do.  There was tons of food, bounce houses, friends, and candy!  Trick or treating with the cousins is always fun too. :)

Had to add this last one...this is at the Fulton School festival. Ella insisted on wearing Aunt Mel's glasses while paying for her snow cone. :)

Arboretum 2010

Oh how I LOVE this time of year!!! The Arboretum is always on our list of things to do at the beginning of the Fall season.  The gardens not only have the most beautiful flowers, but are transformed into the most amazing pumpkin village.  It is such a neat place to spend time at as a family during this time of year.  Ella Grace was in awe of the houses made of pumpkins and gourds.  She kept the biggest smile on her face the entire time we were there.  It was also so nice to share this for the first time with little Emerson.  We look forward to many years of this tradition in our future!

Looking forward to many fun things in the upcoming weeks!  Hope everyone is having a wonderful start to the Fall season!!!
