september wrap up

September was a busy month and it went by fast!
Two of my boys had birthday's...
one of them sternly requested not to be blogged about...
so I won't post festive pictures of the celebration,
just imagine that we had a grand carnival
complete with elephants, camel rides, and cotton candy...
you'll be non the wiser:)

Nana and Pa (Chris' parents) came to visit over conference weekend, and we relaxed to the inspirational messages while Nana made her chicken soup for the soul. She also had a birthday this month, so the three september birthday's blew out a candle on a fruity tart.
Pregnancy got the best of me more than once last month, and while I was pouting on the couch unable to move my sexy whale-like body, Papa Bear handed me this plate over my shoulder and kissed me gently on the forehead. I was brought to hormonal tears which totally confused the Leprechaun and bewildered the other children...
I love my man and his generosity that arises with perfect timing...
I will reach the end yet.
The kids didn't completely receive my passion for reading when their bodies and spirits were forming in the womb, but luckily they have found a couple of books that keep their attention enough. It warms a mothers heart when books bring about smiles...
even if it is a highly illustrated watered down version.
I've seen more spiders around here than I'd care to remember, and I seem to be the spider whisperer... in other words, the only family member who holds it together enough to smash the culprit into a wall or floor accent while the others scream and flea the scene of the crime.
We had a sweet photo shoot with three of the most photogenic people on this earth. One little girl in particular has more personality and dang cuteness than anyone can handle. All I can say is, watch out world!

I'm almost ready to document the evolution of this blessed house from out of it's cocoon. The wings have a little tweeking more to go... a before and after post will be coming soon!

My soul is empty when you don't blog. My heart smiles when I see Landon's eyes and Addy's milky smooth skin. I miss your soul and I want to hug those kids and kiss their cheeks off. Oh how I love thee...

p.s. One word for your stocky, manly and generous papa bear that has a heart bigger than this world... precious.

This post was like a warm cup of hot chocolate on a cool morning. Sounds silly...but in Arizona those mornings are even more precious since they're few and far between. Great post.
