2 fairy's & a princess

Abby and Kyndal are being fairies for Halloween.  Anna Claire is Snow White.  Each car is having a theme, and our car will be fairies and princess theme.  The girls are excited about the trunk or treat.  They've already gotten a ton of candy so they are focusing on serving Friday night.  I have to say, they look quite adorable:)

Love these cuties:):):)

Around here

It's getting cold...

Soccer is over, but I think the girls, or one of them at least may play basketball this winter.  Craig is going to coach.

Gymnastics is going good.  The girls LOVE it and are doing really well.

They are all doing very well in school.

We are taking the girls to a trunk or treat tonight.  We did door to door trick or treat last year for the first and only time as far as I'm concerned.  I'm not a fan!  I much more prefer trunk or treats or fall festivals at churches.

Craig and Abby along with several others from the church are doing a mission project in the morning.  The other two and myself will do some cleaning and getting ready for some fun company for the evening. 

Sunday, we will hear the Word preached powerfully as usual and then have choir and accountability groups.  Looking forward to a relaxing family night Sunday.

Next week is busy with school, friends and fellowship, getting ready for the church trunk or treat, and so on.  I will be going to AL for a few days to be there with my family as my aunt says "I do".  I'm SO beyond excited and very grateful that the Lord provided a way for me to fly down.  Very thankful to my wonderful husband for making it possible too.

There will be a Gospel tent at the trunk or treat, and I'm praying there will be souls saved and lives changed for God's Glory. 

Thank you Aunt Eron for our pretty shirts, we love them and love you even more.:)  Abby, Kyndal, and Anna Claire

Soccer Championship

This was our first experience with soccer and the girls loved every minute of it.  They gave a devotional before every game, and encouraged the kids to be very encouraging to one another, to be good winners and good losers.  The girls wanted to practice often during the week with Craig.  They both did really well.

Yesterday was the final game, and then the two best teams played for the championship.  Abby was on the number 1 team, but they lost the championship game 2-1.  All of the kids got medals, and the winning team of the championship got trophies.  It was a very exciting game.  Very proud of our girls:)

AC ism's

Anna Claire still cracks us up on a regular basis.  The things she says sometimes are so funny.

When I am fixing her hair, sometimes she will ask me to do a "regie" ponytail.  (regular)

Her Sunday School teacher told me the other day that last Sunday morning, she was helping her put some little books together and after a few minutes, Anna Claire said, "well I think I've done enough".

When she is coloring at school, after about 1 minute, she will say "mom, my hand is tired and needs a break".

Organsize= Organize

Breakcus= Breakfast

Stomach steak= Stomach ache

O, and the faces she makes sometimes are absolutely hilarious!!  The girl is spunky and I love it, and I love her to pieces.

Abby has been having more complex art projects this year.  More than just the coloring and pasting things so to speak.  The girl is very artistic.  I'm so impressed with her work.  She has done several really nice pieces of work and she brought one down the other day that was so cool, so I took her picture with it.

She got several art books at the library the other day.  She really enjoys doing artsy (not sure that's a word) things, and she's very good at it.

It's out!!!!

Kyndal got her expander out on Monday and she was excited.  She put gum in her mouth right when we got into the car.

She did say it felt really funny in the roof of her mouth.  She had gotten so use to the expander after 9 months.

She was fitted for her retainer and we get it next week.  She picked glow in the dark pink:)

Next up, braces in a few years after all of her permanent teeth are in.

She was such a trooper with that thing, never complaining about what she couldn't eat or when we were having to turn it the first month.

Abby's Day

We took the day off of school for Abby's birthday too.  We had her breakfast of choice which was cinnamon rolls and I didn't get a pic. 

We went to lunch as a family to 99 Restaurant, where I forgot to take a pic again.  (total mom fail)

I took the girls shopping to spend their birthday money.

She got the kindle fire hdx which she is loving!

We had Chevy for some of the shopping trip and they all had fun!

Her choice for dinner was beef stroganoff, green beans, and biscuits!

For dessert, she wanted a strawberry cake with vanilla frosting!

She said she had a great birthday:):)

She is 11

Happy 11th Birthday Abby Hannah

Abby, we hope you have a most wonderful birthday and continue to treasure your childhood years.  You are a wonderful daughter, big sister, and friend.  You truly have the most compassionate and tender heart.  You care for people greatly.  You seek to be better.  You are very smart and do really well in school.  You are a servant.  You love doing for others.  You love to cook.  You love gymnastics and enjoy soccer too.  You are a precious young girl and your Dad and I love you SO much.

Our prayer for you is that you will the seek the Lord with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength all the days of your life.  That you will always seek His wisdom and His will for your life in all situations.  We pray that your life's passion will be to serve Him in all you do.  Jesus loves you more than you could possibly imagine.

Love you BIG sweet girl!

The seasons are changing and so are the leaves.  It's SO very pretty around here this time of year.  It's fun just to drive around and look at all the beautiful colors everywhere. 

Time goes by so quickly.  Things and people change.  Times change.  I pray the Lord would continually change my heart to look more like His on a daily basis.  I pray I never grow stagnate or think that I've arrived.

Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me.  Psalm 51:10
