October Catch Up!

Um....I'm clearly in over my head.  It recently occured to me that I haven't updated in a "little while."  Now I get on here and see my last post was September 4th.  What the whaaaa??  My apologies.  Allow me to catch you up!

We've been busy.  Like, crazy end of the year, holiday season, hooray fall is here, kinda busy.  I love it!  First up-September started like this.

Why yes, yes that is a giant tree laying in our yard.  One of our pecan trees was just overloaded with pecans and had a very large dead "limb" that fell right next to/on top of our back deck.  I was standing in the kitchen when it happened and saw it coming.  Not cool.  Luckily there wasn't any damage...just a lot of clean up!!

Next we took the kiddos to a Carolina game.  It was Walker's first game and he loved it!

Next on the agenda was the annual Heart Walk in Charleston!  All the money raised goes to the American Heart Association to fund research for congenital heart defects!  In the 2 years we have participated, our family has raised $1750.00 for them!!

 The next fun thing we did was surprise the kids with a trip to see The Fresh Beat Band in concert!!  They had no idea where they were going and didn't figure it out until the band ran on stage! It was a blast!!  And yes, I sang every word to every song.  Don't judge.

In early October we joined my inlaws on our annual mountain trip!  We stayed in a cozy little cabin and enjoyed the pretty leaves and crisp cool air!

We went on lots of walks.  This girl thinks she is a model...

                 I did lots of this....

We took the kids fishing again this year and Walker got to fish too!  Audrey is a pro and caught 3 fish!! 

By the way, can someone please tell me how in the world she got so big?

This picture is one of my all time faves of my men.

Mountain beauty.

The next week was the state fair.  The kids had a blast and rode everything they were allowed to!!  Walker's favorite part was the snow cones....

We did some punkin picking...and carving!

Jessie and Woody had a blast TRUNK or treating and TRICK or treating!


Holy cow, I am tired just looking through this post!  I think this may be the longest post in history!  With every single free second I have had, I've been sewing, sewing, and sewing some more to prepare for our craft fair on November 9th!!  If you are local, please come support my sister and I as we launch our new sewing business!! More to come on that!  Hope you all had as wonderful a September and October as we did!!  Happy November!!
