Whew...where did October go?

I can't believe it's November already! This year is flying by and with school in session it seems to be going even faster than normal!

We had a great weekend. We went to the park on Saturday to take family pictures. It's literally been since Janea was a baby that we have set aside time to take a true family picture. We have had pictures for church websites and one's taken by ourselves and other family people but not ones where we really thought about it all.

One of my AWANA leaders is a Calvary student and wonderful photographer and she was willing to go with us to an area park and take some great shots of all of us. I am so pleased with the results and will be posting some of the pictures really soon.

Before we got pictures done I wanted to make sure that we would all coordinate together. As I was pulling clothing out of the closests and laying them next to one another I was getting more and more frustrated. Nothing coordinated really well and it would look terrible together. Dan was so sweet and told me to go and get Janea a new shirt to coordinate and look for a piece for Jaron as well. So I rushed out to buy her something appropriate and ended up getting both kids and myself something to coordinate with the shirt I had picked out for Dan. I think the end result really works and I am pleased. Plus, I got a new sweater out of the deal...score one for me!

Since we don't really do Halloween, the kids just hung out at home Saturday night...and Jaron was in bed before 8...I was a little worried since it was time change weekend, but he slept good until about the normal time the next morning...he was definitely all recharged and raring to go on Sunday! All in all it was a great weekend full of lots of quality family time.

I am so pleased!
