Snapping Beans...

This year my family froze Lot's of different veggies for us to eat this Winter. Lukas and Aubrey LOVED snapping the beans. It was fun having her join in with us this year and she continued to help until our bowl was empty. Lukas kept reminding us that his Papa grows really good green beans. We are so thankful that he shared his crop with us. We will be even more thankful when were eating them this Winter! She got a real kick out of snapping the beans. Snapping beans with Daddy

Look at these great carrot's! My kids love that they were so bright and colorful. We cut up several of these carrots to freeze for the Winter as well. Once they are put together in a bag, it looks like a bag of fruit cocktail =)

A Spooky Wreath...

Our door was a little empty this month so Lukas and I made this Halloween Wreath to hang up. We used a wreath that I had purchased from the Dollar Tree earlier this year and painted it black. Next we cut strips out of the leftover Halloween fabric we had. Lukas helped me tie the fabric in knots around the wreath. Finally we hot glued some spiders on to make it a little spookier. It's pretty cute and really bright. I love it.
Creepy Spiders!

My 2nd Grader...

It's hard for a mommy to see her children grow up, but sometimes we really really look forward to the first day back to school!!! Even though I miss Jaren while he is gone at school, I really love having our house back on a routine. My little man has grown so much over the summer and has such a passion to learn. This year he will have the same 2nd grade teacher that my husband and I both had. He is going to love her! Good luck this year Jaren. We are so proud of you!!!

He was so excited to get into the school and start his day!

Our Sleeping Beauty...

Our sweet little girl is growing up so fast and has moved into a toddler bed. She LOVES it. When Justin and the boys got done putting it together, she came running into the room shrieking with excitement. She loves to climb up on it to lay down with her night night and Binky.

She looks so so sweet all tucked into her bed!
