Trunk or Treat

Our little dragon was quite hungry tonight!


He is quite the crab when he's hungry, but once his tummy is full he's happy and ready to move!

Mommy & Nathan

I love the back of his costume almost as much as the front!

Ashton the Lion and Nathan the Dragon!

Checking each other out...

Hunter the Cow & Nathan the Dragon!

Daddy am I going to have this many teeth one day?!

Nathan got to hold baby Genevieve.  Doesn't he looked thrilled?!

Halloween & My Gym

We are getting good use out of Nathan's costume this year.  First stop, My Gym! 


He actually kept the hood on for quite awhile!  I was impressed!

Nathan and his ladybug friend

Watch out, he may breathe fire!

What do you get when a dragon, a ladybug and Buzz Lightyear meet up?  A CUTE pic!

This little dragon loves to climb!

Silly Daddy!  (But might I add CUTE too!)

Wagon Ride

We took the boys out for a wagon ride together.  Callen could not stop babbling the entire ride!  Nathan on the other hand likes to ride in silence and does NOT like it when the wagon comes to a stop as evidenced by the picture below!


This is AWESOME!

Can we get moving again or what?!

He's always finding a new place to explore...

Up & Over

Don't worry Mom.  You're not in my way.  I'll just climb over...

To Save or Not to Save

When is the right time to give away baby stuff?  Such a simple question--but so complicated too.  By getting rid of old baby clothes, accessories and toys it's like I'm saying, out loud, that our family is complete.  But is it?  Do I want it to be?  By not holding onto those tiny baby clothes and toys reality comes crashing down that there may never be another baby in our family.

Although we haven't been "trying" to get pregnant for quite awhile it has been five years since we knowingly were preventing pregnancy.  So many people (many who have never experienced infertility themselves) will  tell you once you stop trying, or just relax, or stop thinking about it--then it will happen.  Easier said then done.  In no way would I lead you to believe that each month I am still in agony when my period comes.  But the thought of becoming pregnant is always a flame on a candle that hasn't been extinguished.

Although I have been told that the pain of infertility never goes away it's always hard when that pain catches me by surprise.  I'm a person who prides herself on being prepared.  And when I'm not prepared and the pain sneaks up on me--it often takes my breath away and strikes me the hardest.

In the midst of this pain I'm grateful for a Savior who loves me and has experienced a pain far deeper than I could ever imagine--all for the sake of having a relationship with me for eternity.

Pumpkin Patch

We headed out to Banducci Farms today--however we didn't actually buy a pumpkin.  This Mommy Blogger just wanted some cute pics!  You'll notice Nathan's tired eyes in most of the pics--that's what happens when you wake up at 5:30 AM!


Checking out the animals

Nathan's newest sign: Thank You.  Although it also doubles as blowing kisses!
