September Update!!!!!

We started to month with a lot going on.  Like I said in August, soccer practices and games took up most of the week.  Hubby had his birthday at the beginning of the month.  He hates when I take pics of him so here is a pic of the yummy mocha cupcakes with peanut butter frosting.
Then came our anniversary.  One of the few times of the year that we actually try to go out on a date.  We celebrated 13 years of marriage this year.  Crazy.  It's hard to believe that we've now been together 16 years.  Feelin a little old here.

Our homeschool group had its first event of the year and we had a blast at that.  Of course, Pess did not want to leave and put up a little bit of resistance.





 Again, lots and lots of soccer.





Then at the end of the month.  DOUBLE CELEBRATION!!!!!  G turned 8 on the 26th and Little Miss turned 1 on the 27th.  Yay.  We can't believe it's been 1 year already.  Time flies when you're having fun and celebrating every moment with these precious kiddos.  It was the absolute neatest cake smash ever.  Everyone at the party said she was very boring.  She barely made any mess with her cake.









She has a very large personality and she is extremely independent and defiant.  The hubby said she's just like me but looks just like him.





Pess and I decided on a change and chopped our hair off.  So much cooler in all this heat.


We did our school photos for the year, so any relatives wanting those need to let me know now.  :)
October is going to be an interesting month.  It is now a tough month for us.  As we approach Addison's birthday and death day, please pray for our family.  Some days it hits me like a ton of bricks.  I can't believe she would have been 2 years old.  I miss her terribly everyday.  Oddly enough, October is Infant Loss Remembrance Month and also Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Two subjects that have hit extremely close to home in our family.  Infant Loss Remembrance Day is the 15th, so please join us in burning a candle for all the babies that have passed on.  We will also be burning one on the 12th for Addison.  Until next time, all for now.

August Update!!!!!

Now that it's October, I figured I should catch you up on what's went on in our house August and September.  This post will just show you August.  Baby steps, right.  We have been running like crazy since we started school at the end of July/beginning of August.  School has been fantastic so far and I feel like this year will be awesome.  We also started soccer.  Yes, three separate fields going at one time sometimes.  Up to five games on Friday and Saturday sometimes.  My Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday have been full of soccer.  We had a very large milestone happen in our house.  Big Man, B,  hit the double digits.  For all of you in the military, you know that's the magic age for a military I.D.  He was so proud.  We also had a very momentous occasion with the promotion of my awesome hubby.  I'm so proud of him.  As we headed into September, the craziness continued.  But I'll save that for another post.  Until then, enjoy some pics from our August.  All for now.
