Fall is here and the days are growing cooler. You can look up to the mountains and see snow gracing their peaks. It's such a beautiful time of year...

The boys have started wanting to do some of their school by the fireplace on the cooler mornings, the light of candles join us, and we enjoy the smell of soup as it sits on the stove... The warmer days of fall still call us outside for school, windows open allowing the warm sun to drift inside...

John-John, Benjamin and Faith decided that they wanted to build a little fire pit in our backyard this last week. They cleared the ground and gathered rocks and sticks to begin their adventure. I always love watching them explore and create... after they finished their project they could not wait for Daddy to get home so that they could start the fire and roast some marshmallows. They are now working on putting together a little town for their exploring. Such fun and special times...

It's amazing to think that this new little one will be joining our family in less then two months. Olivia is constantly telling me that there is a baby inside her tummy. :) Life will change, adjustments will need to be made, sleep will be lost, but a new little one will be here to love and we are more than thrilled.


  1. I cannot wait to see those aspens!!! We'll be on our way to CO next week on the 15th....we're very excited! How are you feeling? Praying your last 2 months go smoothly and that you and the baby stay very healthy. I can't believe my little guy is already 7 mo. old! My how fast time flies. :) Good to see an update from you...many blessings to you and your family!

  2. Love reading your blogs and seeing how the family is doing! I'm excited for your new little one on the way. Praying for a smooth transition to 5. Love & Prayers, Niki :)
