Fall Pretties

As I sit here listening to Christmas music...HA...I was thinking about fall and all the loveliness that comes along with it!  My favorites are scarves, high boots, warmer colors, pumpkins, orange, crisp air, mustard colored sweaters, wearing my hair down without sweating, eating my pumpkin bundt cake, football, wearing multiple layers and knowing it's almost Christmastime!!  Teehee!!  But today I am just focusing on clothes!!

(I love this outfit...but your crotch should ALWAYS be covered when wearing leggings.  Always!)

Happy fall ya'll!!

Sweet Memories

 I came across some old photos on an SD card and decided to share a few of them....
sweet sweet memories

We were at one of Aidan's flag football games...he's in the middle with the ball!!  

Look at that face!!!  All smushed up and full of baby fat!  And MAN my momma is gorgeous!!

I cannot NOT smile at this precious picture.  I need to frame it!

 Stop it!!  I can't believe he is 4 now!


Biggest bro being super sweet to littlest bro!!

This is for you Ashlee!!!  Look at your babies!  (November 2010)

 I need to frame this one as well...to help me make it through the difficult days when their relationship isn't as sweet and loving as this picture shows!;)

Daddy and his daughter...Valentine's 2011.  

These sweet pictures make me sad and happy....but mostly make me thankful that I take pictures.  As time passes you forget the little moments, even the big ones.  You don't see how big your kids have gotten...until you are sifting through old photos.  

Thank you Lord for this precious life and family that you have blessed me with!

My Classroom

I thought I would give a little tour of my preschool classroom.  I am co-teaching the 3 year olds this year!  I had the idea for the different colors, but bff Ashlee gave me the theme "song" for the class!!  I HAVE to have a theme...it just doesn't work without one!!;)  "Jesus Loves the Little Children" is our theme and this is outside our classroom....each large sheet holds a monthly art project and the small sheets are for their names.

You enter our EXTREMELY somewhat bright green room and continue singing the song while putting away your backpack and nap mat!!

Moving on to ..."red, brown, yellow, black and white...."

and finishing with our art feature wall!  

We have to include number posters in there!!  Photo bomber being so helpful passing out materials for Open House!!

Next is our alphabet wall...very colorful of course!!;)

And finishing with our birthday wall...which holds all the paper cupcakes we made on Open House night!

Now our room has artwork on the walls, a friendship paper mural, pictures, dirt on the floors, names on the tables and it is filled with 16 spunky kiddos!!  I really love my job and feel blessed to be at Grace Place. :)

Photo Dump...Week of Sept 7th

Sunday was Breslyn's very first Lord's Supper!!  I love these precious little hands and the face she made after eating the little cracker.  She was not impressed with the lack of taste!  Ha!

After church we went out to lunch at Pizza Hut!

Tuesday was Aidan's first game!!!  It was amazing and you can see more HERE!

Wednesday I wore my new owl shirt to Ladies Bible Study!  I love this shirt...and so does Breslyn (she and Finn are the Lake Pointe Elementary Owls)!!

Friday Owen took some pics with my phone while we were hanging at Weight Watchers!  Ha! ;)

Friday there was a great chill in the air so we played outside for a bit after school!!  Come on Fall!!

Saturday Haley dropped by for a little while...the girls (and Owen) built their own "fort"!  Ha!

Everyone is in full school mode now and we are finally in a groove!!  Yay for schedules!! :)
