My baby is 3

I can not believe how fast time has gone. My baby was 3 yesterday!!!!! How is it possible that it has been 3 years already?

She has been such a wonderful addition to our family and I can't imagine what this house full of boys would be like without her. Riley is fun-loving, happy, loving, gentle, smart, and beautiful. She is a big personality inside a small body and she does not let anything stop her. She thinks she is a big as Noah in both physical size and mental abilities and nobody can convince her differently.

Riley loves life and almost everything in it. She spends the majority of her day smiling and laughing and having a good time. She walks through life as if she is on a mission and is undaunted by anything.

The past 3 years have gone by way too fast and I am looking forward to everyday of the future. She has been a true blessing in my life and everyday; even the difficult ones; is a blessing.

I love you Riley and can't wait to see what God has planned for your life.

Oct. Happenings

We have had a very busy couple of months and I've been very bad about getting pictures posted. The past couple of months we had a field trip to Walden Farms with the boys' preschool to see how pumpkins are grown and they were able to pick their own pumpkins out of the field.

The kids also were able to carve their first Jack-O-Lanterns this year. They loved scooping the seeds out with their hands and eating the roasted pumpkin seeds later. We opted to not go trick-or-treating this year since they had already had several trick-or-treating events at school and church, instead we were able to attend our first Predators hockey games on Halloween.

The kids were able to dress up in their costumes, trick-or-treat in the concourse of the Sommet Center, and watch the hockey game. We all had a great time and we are very thankful to a good friend who gifted us the tickets.

We also celebrated Seth's birthday with his friends. We had a great time at Chuck E. Cheese's with a superhero theme. Seth had a wonderful time playing with this friends and getting to play all of the games. I attempted my first pull apart cake and I think it was pretty good. The kids loved that the black icing turned their tongues black.

Here is a quick picture of the kids in their halloween costumes. I have a better picture and I hope to get them posted soon. They were super cute and they love their costumes so much that they have been wearing them just to play around the house.

I promise to post more later about Halloween and everything else we have been busy with the past couple of weeks.
