So what to do with the time off you ask? Why travel as much as possible! Next week the kids and I will be off to MICHIGAN to see my family for 6 days. Looking forward to meeting my new niece Lainey and seeing my parents, grandparents, sissies... and who ever else wants to hang out! We are planning a photo shoot with the seven cousins (I can't believe we have 7 kids between the 3 of us now!) So I will probably do new years cards instead of christmas fyi :)
Then after the MI trip- I work, and then we are off to THE BAHAMAS!!!! Thank you Citicard for all free flights! And we found a steal of a deal at the Atlantis... so we will be doing christmas in 85 degrees by the pool hopefully.

The rare shot with me in it!
This picture Luke looks so big... it got me thinking about how he will look in middle school. So handsome!
The hair is flipping over the ears.... and I am in love!
But no hair still for sis... it's comin' in sister!
I told them to hold hands :) Sister says "cheese"
Was trying to get a cute one but all she wanted to do was run and play tag!
Love you everyone!

Read her commentary- - aren't they great!
INTCYE by Steven Madden
Loving these, aren't you sisters? But now, are people over 30 wearing leggings with these? And can anyone suggest a top or dress?

Luke was all about the bouncy tent and the playground. They didn't really kick the kids out of the bouncy tent until they wanted to get out... so I just let him bounce and bounce to his hearts content!
We tried the teeter totter! I don't think most playgrounds even have these anymore b/c of injuries... but we had some fun. Love that pic above how neat
And sister is getting into a vocal stubborn phase. She wants what she wants and yells if she doesn't get it- ahhhh. I thought I had a little more time before the terrible twos were here.
I let her go into the bouncy tent for the first time when there were just a couple of kids in it. She liked it but didn't stay in too long!
And when they were tired Luke asks..."mommy.... I want to go to a hotel and relaaaaax!" My feeling exactly Luke!

She didn't mind the costume at all! It was a satin material so not "eetchy" (she can say that when she's itchy!)
We also carved the pumpkin we bought last weekend... well half way. Luke was very hesitant to put his hands in the guts haha. I really enjoyed carving pumpkins with my sisters and mom would bake the pumpkin seeds. Yum Yum. Maybe as they get older we'll try to do the face since their attention span lasted about 5 minutes!

I was in a movie so didn't get the message until after the fire department had gotten there. Thankfully no one was home. But there was a lot of damage to this end of the house- they figured the cause was an electrical short. I manage the property for our friend John who is in Uganda. So I had to break the news to both tenants (it's a duplex). It was so sad- everyone was crying b/c everything was damaged. Eric was nice to put up one guy in his house that's for sale. The other girl I think we will lose because it will take a few months to rebuild the house.
Wow. What an afternoon. Fires are sad. I'm thankful it wasn't at my house...

Helping the chicken lay his eggs...
Sister enjoyed making some art work
Luke did really well sorting the vegetables! What a great idea for a playroom
And Sweet Sis was looking so cute for church I just had to post a few pics since it's been a while :) She is really starting to talk a lot ... she turns 16 months old today! Some of her words are: mama, papa, buba (Luke), more, please, thank you, doggy, ducky ... and she will attempt to repeat many words I say too! So smart

Wayne is working very hard on a rezoning project. Praying for favor on that so his work will continue!! He is the hardest and smartest worker I know and for that I AM THANKFUL!!!
Kids are doing great at dayschool. It is comforting to know that the teachers there Love the Lord... and they really do love my kids too.
