Lots of New Posts

Ok, as always, I got behind and am now caught up with my blog posts. Make sure to go back a few months to get all of the updates if you want them!


The last three years we have hosted Thanksgiving at our house with our friends the Windsor's and Phipps'. This year, the Windsor's invited us to spend Thanksgiving at their new home. We had a great time as we always do eating yummy food and looking through the ads for our early morning shopping spree....

Our Harley Ridin Uncle Tim


Goodbye for Now Pell's.....

Tim, Lindsey, Luke and Jack moved back to Idaho the beginning of November. We took one last trip to Charleston to say goodbye. We were able to see Luke play a soccer game and score a goal, took the kids to miniature golf and go carts and celebrated Halloween. We had a blast as usual. We already miss you guys!!!

Notice the pumpkins in the fake waterfall??? Jack just ran up and started throwing them in before Lindsey could stop him. Gotta love that boy!!

Luke did really well at golf and Jack and Emma just put their balls as close as they could to the hole and tapped it in.

Smith/Windsor Wedding

Our good friends Jason and Alisa got married on October 17th. Emma was a flower girl for the first time and did a great job. Her good pal Kai was the ring bearer. She left him in the dust on the way down the isle but they both made it down and made quite a cute pair. Our whole family was able to be part of their big day, myself a bridesmaid and John and I both giving a charge to the couple as they entered into marriage. Johnny was also included as a donation was given toward our adoption in lieu of wedding favors. We have found great friends in Jason and Alisa and feel so blessed to have been able to be part of their big day. Congratulations Jason and Alisa!! We love you guys.

Pumpkin Patch and Harvest Fun

We went to the pumpkin patch again this year with the Phipps Family and the Wulff Family. It was great fun!

Trip to Meet Hailey

In October, Emma and I took a trip to Washington to meet the newest addition to our family, Hailey. She was three weeks old and so precious. Emma showered her with kisses. We were also able to spend time with the Stagge family and Emma was able to have a whole day playing with her Meemaw and Papa Pell.

The girls watched little mermaid for the first time ever!! I think that Hannah was just as or more excited about her Elmo pail and popcorn while Emma is now hooked on the yittle mahmaid.

We went to Fred Meyers one day with all three girls. It was right before nap time and a complete disaster. Emma force fed Hannah who screeched at her to stop. At one point they were both screaming and the goldfish got poured out on the floor. Ahhhh three girls two and under, gotta love it. Of course, Hailey was good as gold as always.....

Kelly and Jon's Wedding

On September 26th, my good friend Kelly got married. I met Kelly in Nashville, TN when I was in YWAM. We have been friends for a long time and I was so happy when she met and fell in love with Jon. He is a great guy and is a perfect fit for Kelly. The wedding was in Virginia where Kelly grew up so we got to go on a road trip for the wedding. John performed the ceremony and did such a great job. Emma loved the reception and danced until 11 pm. She is a party animal!

Congratulations Jon and Kelly!!
