Be Kind


So our family finally saw Toy Story 4 and we loved it! We laughed so much together. Now we finally understand the new character, Forky. Today Gayley made her very own Forky and just like Bonnie in the movie she has played with and taken Forky everywhere! Love this sweetness and imagination.

October Times

Gayley sure has had a fun Birthday month at school. Everyday she comes home knowing more, sounding out more words, wanting to spell and write. She is definitely staying busy and truly learning.

Happy Halloween

This year we didn’t know if trick-or-treating was going to be canceled due to bad weather. It had been raining for a couple days and on Halloween it had rained from early morning till about 3 o’clock. Once it stopped the sun came out and the cold air blew in. We were so glad that it wasn’t raining we didn’t mind bundling up in coats and gloves to go trick-or-treating. The kids were so excited and couldn’t wait to go racing off to all our neighbors houses. We had Batman (Joseph), Robin (Hans), Wonder Woman (Mary), Super Girl (Gayley) and German Boy (Jordan). Great memories!!

Future Florist

Today I looked out our front door to see Gayley doing this. She was busy arranging pumpkins, potted plants, deer antlers and flowers on our front porch. This kept busy for quite a while as she moved about the porch. She cleverly even added some bling to the antlers with her jeweled rings. Honestly I was so impressed with this beautiful Fall arrangement I kept it there for a few days. She was also so proud to show off her work! Happy Fall y’all!

Fall is Here

Alas Fall is here! We had such a good time at Mt. Laurel’s fall festival this weekend. I love walking along looking at all the arts and crafts and artisans there and food vendors/trucks and farmers with all their produce. Morgan was home on fall break so he went with us. The weather was perfect just a little chill in the air but not cold enough to keep Hanson and Gayley from enjoying ice cream cones. Happy Fall Y’all!!!

Fancy Nancy Party

Ooh la la! Fancy Gayley had a magnificent Five Year Old soirée! She was so excited to have her dearest friends over to eat delectable cupcakes, color Fancy Nancy sheets, paint exquisite sun catchers and be pampered with manicures!

Gayley was tickled pink that I let her frost and decorate her birthday cake! She also picked out the butterfly and unicorn cookie cutters for her sandwich shapes. Inspiring caterer!

She adored all her gifts from friends and family. They were all devine darling! She loved cuddling her very own Frenchie puppy and her tea party set. She wanted to paint her own nails and also everyone else’s. She truly is one of the Fanciest little girls you’ll ever meet! Happy Birthday to our sweet fancy girl!


Gayley is FIVE . . . 5. . . Cinco. . . like not a toddler but a BIG kid now!!!!! She has been so happy all day saying, “It’s my Birthday! I’m FIVE! I’m a Big Kid now! I can go to Kindergarten! When do I start kindergarten? Yes! I can’t believe I’m 5! I grew up so quick!”. We are having her birthday party this Saturday but her favorite little friend, Ella Kate, will be having her family birthday party at the exact same time with her grandparents and great grandparents so will not be able to come. Since today is Gayley’s actual Birthday we decided to just get the girls together at the park to play and have cake pops, exchange presents and goodie bags. They are such sweet friends and they both adore one another. They do not go to the same preschools this year nor will they go to the same elementary school so we will just have to continue meeting up for play dates so that they can stay close. It was sooo hot out but they played for about an hour and had a marvelous time together! So thankful for all the sweet friends God gives us! Happy 5th Birthday baby girl!
