Who is this 8 year old and what has he done with my baby?

We celebrated the little man's 8th birthday this weekend!

We had a party at our house with 10 of his friends.

They rode pedal tractors.

Played in the dirt.

Ate cake.

Opened presents.

Played kickball, cornhole, and dodgeball.

We had a pumpkin ring toss, pumpkin seed race, and even pumpkin bowling with toilet paper ghosts!

After the party, we headed to my parents' house where we had been hiding our gift to the birthday boy.

Could it be?

Is it really what I think it is?

Yes! A 4 wheeler! Woo hoo!

He is SO excited about his new 4-wheeler. Now he's one of the big guys.

But he'll always be my baby.


Happy 8th birthday, my little man. Momma loves you more than you know.

The Speed of Life

Over the past month...

My new sweet baby niece was born.

4 days later, my own baby girl turned 6.

3 days later, my other sweet baby niece turned one.

Then the kids and the husband were in a wedding for my cousin and his beautiful new bride.

We are now enjoying Fall Break. And when I say enjoying, I mean screaming at the kids to QUIT FIGHTING.

(These pictures of the Little Miss were taken 2 weeks ago, when it was 80. It is currently 30 degrees.)

And today we are celebrating my little man's 8th birthday. Gah! Crazy. Unbelievable. Impossible. He was as small as his new baby cousin just yesterday.

Life is flying by too quickly. Someone, please pass the pause button.

It's October

So that means...

1. I am knee-deep in papers to grade.

2. The combine will be rolling out of the barn soon.

3. The boys in my life will disappear for a few weeks.

4. My baby boy will soon turn 8.

5. Both kids will be in a wedding next week.

6. I am knee-deep in papers to grade.

7. The leaves are changing.

8. I am making way too many stops for this.

9. I can start making meals like this again.

10. Fall Break is only 2 weeks away.
