What we've been up to......

Jeez....blogging once again has been put on the back burner.  Sorry to the family members that had to stare at our 5 year anniversary post for 3 months due to no updates.  On a personal note, I am officially half way through grad school! Happy and scary all at the same time. Happy that I will be able to reconnect with the world and scary that I will have to get a JOB!! I can't say it enough, I am so THANKFUL that God has given me this opportunity.  Never a day goes by that I don't practically yell it in my prayers how grateful I am.  Any whooooo....on with some pictures from the past weeks! 

This picture is purely PITIFUL!! This is Lauren's first boo boo.  
She fell at my grandparents house and caught herself with her nose and 
forehead. She cried for a minute and then went back to playing. The no
shirt look really adds to the pitiful shot.  
 Lauren has been giving us little "lovies" here and there. 
This is unheard of for her, so we are really taking full advantage of it!!
 Paci Bunny and Blankie have become more of a permanent fixture during the day.
They are always present during naps and bedtime but lately she has been 
pulling them through the slots of her crib and toting them around the house (or at a wedding seen here : )).
I despise these little car naps. If she falls asleep in the car for a 
20 minute car ride, she wakes right up as soon as the car turns off and is 
refueled and won't take her real 1 hour and 45 minute nap that she desperately needs twice a day!
 Skinny jeans...I love them on her. Since she is the only one 
that can get away with them in the house, I make sure to put 
them on her as often as possible.
 The 87th trip to a pumpkin patch this month. We went with the Settles last week. Lauren had a blast watching the tractor and corn husk launcher.  She loves any type of heavy equipment. Maybe she will drive a backhoe one day.
 The girls taking a break in the silo of corn. I can't say I'm a fan of this. 
I'm not a germ freak but I can't see how rolling in corn that 475 other kids
did that day can't get you a whole mess of germs.  I let her stick her 
feet in, she of course wanted to put a fistful of corn in her mouth.
I love this picture. It's Wren and her Great Grandma Phyllis during one of our visits. I can't remember what she was doing in this shot, but I think it is a dear moment.
 Celebrating with our friends our 5th Anniversary and a baby on the way (for another couple!!).
One of my only Fall projects.....super pitiful!! Burlap pillows. I loved these but gave them a good home elsewhere. If you look closely the O and the R on each pillow line up. Next time I will chose another font that shows up better.

Looks like you guys have been enjoying fall. LOVE the skinny jeans on Lauren! I can't wear them either, so I will live vicariously through her little adorable self. LOVE those burlap pillows. Is it not just me who's obsessed with burlap at this time? I've been making a few things with it myself... prompting John to say I'm obsessed. Miss you lady... and congrats on being 1/2 done with grad school! xoxo
