"Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD" Psalms 127:3

Fall is in full swing in North Alabama, and as Thanksgiving is rapidly approaching, I'm trying to not forget October.  We had a great time, as we always do, visiting Lyon Family Farms with our closest friends and celebrating Halloween on our Street with a few hundred other families....Seriously, there are HUNDREDS of trick-or-treaters on our street on Halloween.  It is the hot spot of the neighborhood and always tons of fun.   We also thoroughly enjoyed our church's trunk-or-treat.  Will is starting to understand the whole "trick-or-treating" thing and LOVED getting all the candy that he (and mom and dad) didn't need!  But hey, that's what Halloween is for.....who doesn't love a few extra pounds over the holidays when it means you get to experience it through the eyes of a two year old and an (almost) one year old!  I wouldn't trade it for anything!

10 Months of Lily

Lily is such a joy to have in our family!  She is always happy and so easy going.  Pat, Will, and I are so in love with this little girl.  We couldn't imagine a life without her.  At 10 months, Lily:

  • Can take steps.  The most we've seen her take is about 10 in a row.  She's not a "walker" yet, but is well on her way.
  • Has 6 teeth.  Four on top and two on the bottom.
  • Has Curls!  IN HER HAIR!  If you know me, you know that I have the straightest hair there is.  Lily apparently inherited her pretty little curls from her Grandma's side of the family. I love them!
  • Is a great eater.  She loves all fruit, but isn't crazy about veggies.....
  • Has a love/hate relationship with her brother.  He bugs her to death!!!!!  If you know Will, you're not surprised.
  • Knows how to throw a fit when she wants something.   Pat and I didn't know what to do the first time she threw a little tantrum.  I guess we just thought she would be perfect forever.  
  • Still has her Daddy wrapped around her little finger.  They are best friends.
