the joys of fall

John 1:16 From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another.

Our days and weeks are so full these days. They all seem to run's a wonderful kind of busyness though. Luca is growing so quickly right before my eyes. She started sleeping through the night a day before she turned six weeks. HALLELUJAH!!

Baby's cheek's are really filling out. They get kissed a lot these days.Baby's tummy is getting bigger too. =)

I never thought I would have a blue-eyed baby. I love God's little surprises.Kaiya has shown more of an interest in her babies lately. She hasn't been much of a doll person up to this point. Lately she's been changing her baby's diapers. I found three of Luca's dry diapers in the trash the other day. She brought her baby's swing and sat it right next to Luca's. She imitates a lot of what I do with Luca...I love it!

Kindergarten Pumpkin Farm Field Trip I was so privileged to accompany Caedmon on his kindergarten pumpkin farm field trip. What a treat to watch him interact with his other classmates and have one on one time with him. It was sweet to see his excitement to have me there. He reached out for my hand a couple times...he doesn't normally do that...I loved it.

Here he is sitting next to his teacher, Mrs. Moore, on the hayride.
Watching cider being made the old-fashioned way.
Mrs. Moore's Kindergarten class learning about pumpkins.Time to pick out a pumpkin to take home.

This little girly smiles so much these days...I tried and tried to catch it on camera. OK, not gonna happen this time. Makin' caramel apples. Yum.Caedmon quickly became interested when he saw what the finished product would be.
Soccer games continue with only one more to go. Caedmon has shown so much improvement this year with his skills and attitude. So proud of him. Saturday morning games start at nine and it's been bitterly cold for October. I dressed Kaiya in her snow pants, hat & mittens for this game. Caedmon stayed pretty warm from all the running...the long underwear helped too. =)
Goin' for the goal! Our little brother, Immanuel, spent the night and joined us for the game.
I've decided it would be best at this time to take my blog private...which means in order to view it, you need an invitation from me via your email address. I love sharing my journey with all of you and would love to continue. If you would like access to my blog in the future, I will need your email address to be able to send you an invitation to view my blog. You can leave it in the comments, or send me an email ( or facebook message. I'll probably take it private at the end of this month. Thanks.

Loved all the photos of the kids. Caedmon letting you hold his hand must have been pretty sweet. Can't believe how fast Luca is growing! Glad she is sleeping all night for you now. Jake & Maci are pretty special band members too.
