Stream of Consciousness

We are all ready for Halloween over here!

This will be Taylor's 1st Halloween and Mason's 1st Halloween where he is able to actually trick or treat. Last year he fell asleep in the stroller shortly after we started walking.

We are super excited!
The boys got their haircut the other day. Daddy buzzed it! It was long overdue, but I teased Tim that I was going to make him do it outside, gosh I hate having to clean all that hair up. It sticks to everything!

Timothy looks just like Mason. He wouldn't let me take his picture. He is 3, enough said.
Today we took a trip down to the covered bridge by our house. It is one of the few that are left in the state if I remember correctly.

It is beautiful there in the fall with the leaves. Nothing fancy, but it would be a nice place to go have a picnic plenty of picnic tables!

Here is my attempt at a cute picture of the boys. Ahem. Here is Timothy being 3.

Have I ever mentioned how much I love this age?!

Lots of woods, and running!

And Taylor at the covered bridge!

Have a safe and fun Halloween weekend!

God's Work

One thing Tim and I often disagree on is God.

Simply put. Tim does not believe in a God, and well I do. I am a firm believer in "everything happens for a reason".

Neither one of us are religious, we were never raised with religion in our lives. We do not attend church, but I still believe.

Tim's strongest reason for not believing, is all the bad things that happen in the world and to people. He believes that if there was a God, he would not make people suffer.

I believe that God has a plan, there is a reason people suffer. He has a plan for everyone, and a reason for everything. And while you may not understand the reason or plan at the moment or ever, there is one.

I know there is a reason for the events that happened a few weeks ago. God had a reason for putting us through hell. While I am still not really wanting to share what happened, I am coming to peace with the events of that week.

I feel that our family is stronger, the relationships in our family are stronger, especially between Tim and I. I believe I am a better mother and partner. I feel good about where we are now.

I know that it was because of prayers and knowing that God had his hand in this, that we were able to make it through. He never left our side.

I love seeing God's work. I am blessed to be where we are right now. So very blessed and grateful.

Big Boy

Timothy has officially learned how to pedal his bike!

All on his own, and he is super proud of himself. We are super proud of him too! That is another big boy milestone down, I am a little sad, but so happy all at the same time.

Here is a short video of him pedaling away. Enjoy!

Hardworking Man

It is no secret that Tim can get on my nerves. Frustrate and annoy me at times. And we have our fights and arguments, especially over who has the harder "job". Of course I am usually arguing that he just doesn't understand all that I do and that I think I have it pretty rough.

When in reality I have it pretty darn good. I mean I get to be a stay at home mom, I get to spend my days seeing my children grow and learn. Try new things, and succeed.

I don't think I tell him enough how grateful and appreciative I am that I am able to do this. It is because of his hard work that this is even a possibility.

He works at least 8 hour days, usually more because he takes overtime. He spends a week on on call, where he is usually called out during the night. Which he then sometimes works 16 hours in a day. He sometimes goes all day without seeing the kids, leaves before their up and comes home when they are in bed already. He sacrifices a lot so I can stay home.

I am able to "sleep in" using the kids as my alarm clock.

We are able to have lazy pajama days. Spend all day lounging around the house cuddling under warm blankets!!

I get to enjoy days with friends, watching the kids laugh together!

I can spend the day at the park or zoo.

I can use nap time to clean, instead of having to come home after working and having to clean when I just really want to lay down.

I am not pressed for time with my kids, like I was when I worked. I have gotten the chance to see them do so many things, that unfortunately only Tim has me to tell him about.

Every time I start giving Tim a hard time, I try to think about how good I really have it. Because, I really want nothing more than to be able to stay at home with my babies.

And I know it's hard on Tim working all the hours he does, he wants more than anything to be able to be home. He does what he has to for us.

I am so grateful.

I am so appreciative of my hardworking man.

I love him!

And I guess I have it good, really good.

While I am in the mood to pour my heart out I might as well admit that he probably does work harder than I do. Ahem. Most days!

Just don't tell him I admitted that.

And now friends, I am off to run some errands. Or stay in and have a lazy day. Either way I will be working hard!

Little Rays of Sunshine

They are in every breath I take.

I live and do for them.

I breath in their sweet scent, bask in their laughter, soaking up each and every moment with them.

Every second is precious time with my loves. I don't take it for granted.

And now I must go back to kissing soft cheeks, and tickling tiny toes!

Lounging around the house playing trains, and snuggling up on the couch.

Happy Sunday!

The Proof is in the Video.

Well kinda.

My attempt to catch Taylor doing her unique crawl was a big FAIL.

She does a little at the end, the beginning is just there for pure cuteness. ENJOY!

Have a great weekend!

Not for a few years....

My baby is growing at lightning speed.

My once sleep all day, wake to eat and poop, then go back to sleep baby has been replaced. My baby now plays for most of the day! Still eats, sleeps, and poops though.

There is a lot more awake hours. There is a lot more crying and diaper changing protests. There are more smiles and laughs. And friends, there is a whole lot more moving.

When I say moving, I mean she can cover some ground. I can no longer lay her on the floor and run to the bathroom. Well, unless I want her to maneuver her way over by daddy's desk and pull the headphones down on herself.

My baby rolls everywhere, up and down the hallway, and across the living room. But just recently she has figured out a new way to move. It's her own style of crawling. She just kind of slinks along like a half army crawl half snake. It's kinda cute. Hey, it works she gets to where she needs to go!

So I guess this means we are close to really crawling, and that means that before long she will be pulling up, then cruising, and finally walking and talking. What am I going to do then?!

I guess this means I need to have another one, since you know my baby will be going to school soon, and then before long she will be moving out, and I will be alone. OK so it's not that bad.

Just kidding mom and dad, I will wait a few years, at least!

I willneed that time to convince Tim.
