I woke up this morning with a verse from a song that I grew up singing in church in my head.

Rejoice in the Lord always, Again I say Rejoice! Rejoice!

Seems that we get caught up in all the little things- toys out on the floor, dishes in the sink, laundry not done. It is sometimes hard to remember to be thankful that we have toys, food in our refrigerator, and clothes to wear.

I am going to try to be less bothered by the small stuff and to rejoice for all that we have and can do.

Trick or Treat

I hope everyone had a good weekend. We had a very busy weekend, and a little flu too. Luckily, our house is much healthier now.

Our church hosted an amazing Trunk-or-Treat. The kids had a great time playing the games and seeing their church friends, and school friends all dressed up. They left with tons of candy and completely exhausted.

Jeremy and the kids did a great job on our Pirate and Princess pumpkins. I am so glad that Jeremy is way more artistic in that department than me. We were able to go to a few houses this weekend too. All and all my Batman and Cinderella had a great weekend!

This is one of my FAVORITE pictures of the kids. You can totally see their personalities shine through!

Jaclyn's 3rd Birthday

Jaclyn turned 3 a couple of weeks ago. We had a Princess week for Jaclyn. We decorated the breakfast nook and kept it up all week. Here is a peak at our little Princess!
