I haven’t been here in a while a lot has changed since I’ve written. But glad to be getting back at this.
As we approach the new year I see lots of people talking about how 2019 will be better than this year, or they will smash their goals, next year.
Let’s all remember everyday we wake up we receive the opportunity to make that day great. We choose how our day will go. It’s not about the situations that we are put through it’s how we react to those situations.
Remember something crappy might happen every day but don’t let that one thing define your day / week / month etc. we also have 24 hours in a day. Don’t let one thing define you!
Quit complaining take control of you and your life and make every opportunity count!
God Bless to all this year and next. But don’t think by a new year coming your life is going to drastically change. That’s your job!
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
You want a better year / day / month? Do something different 👍🏼👍🏼❤️❤️
Me. Jacob will be turning 2 on Friday! It’s hard to believe my baby boy is that old already!!
This weekend we took a risk and moved him into the toddler bed.
Night one he was not sure at all he cried and we left leaving him to calm himself down. After some time he quieted down and I started to head down stairs. I was two steps down and I heard his door open – oops! Didn’t know he could do that!!
I laid him back down started some essential oils to help calm him down and he was down for the night. Success!
Night two we laid him down and he was golden! He even laid down on his own for a nap. Monday morning we woke up to Jacob crying outside our bedroom door. So another thing to combat 🙂 he had gone all the way downstairs with his blankets and back up!
He’s done well up until last night, baby gate at the top of the stairs and all. Last night we went to check on him and found he had gotten sick all over he place. ☹️ Poor buddy – he got a bath and we did laundry in the middle of the night and laid him back down. Just to wake up about 30 min later to g getting sick again. So it was a long yet short night last night.
Hoping he feels better soon and that he continues to enjoy sleeping in his big boy bed!! ❤
Thanks for reading! Xoxo – Christy

Crossing things of my Fall Bucket List!
The family including my Mom took a trip up to Gays Mills Apple Fetival. It was a lot of fun!
The kids enjoyed apple picking and eating!
They also went through a petting zoo that let them feed goats, horses, and pigs! They also had dogs, baby kitties and a baby calf to pet.
We enjoyed the sites and came back home with tons of goodies! Juice to make apple wine, apple syrup, corn salsa, pop corn, honey, kettle corn and apples of course!
Over all the kids and us had a great day! They had their moments and fits but that happens when you miss nap time!
What fun fall things did you do this weekend! I hope you got out to enjoy the weather!

These 4 are going to have so much fun growing up!
We always love getting together with my brother and his wife. The kids are so close in age they are either getting along well or fighting like brother and sisters. Similar to my cousins and I growing up.
Thanks to grandma Lou for the cozy PJ’s the kids love them! This was he best picture I got even though it’s a little cut off on the side. They were all semi smiling! Took a lot of effort to get this picture in with out tears! 😀
We had a great evening with the family! The only one missing was Grandpa Mark. He was working hard though!
Thanks for the night of fun! Tomorrow projects around the house and Sunday football of course!
How are you spending your weekend?

Who doesn’t love fall!?
I absolutely love fall and everything that comes with it! It is my favorite season!
Last year I made a post about a fall bucket list. Well this year I was on the ball and actually made one! We hope to cross off all or most of the items on this list with the kids 🙂 Plus some! Make our Halloween costumes and dress up! Enjoy time with friends and family! Sweaters, scarves, leggings and boots!! Snuggling up in a blanket with the windows open and a good book! Love fall! 🍂🍁🎃🍁🍂🎃
What are your favorite fall traditions!?
Take care and enjoy the season!

Someone was beyond excited to start dance!!
This girl has been talking about dance class for over a year! She finally is old enough to be signed up!
All day she kept telling me how scared she was and if I was going to be there to hold her hand. But the second we walked in she got her shoes on and was off! I am so proud of the big girl she is growing up into! ❤️
She loved every second of it and came out of the room pouting. When I asked her what was wrong she said she didnt want to be done. Bless her heart!
On our way home Ali had to pee and I told her she was going to have to hold it. And she stressed out about 5 minutes later saying she couldn’t beacuase she was bouncing too much. Haha
So I had to pull over in the middle of no where and let her pee on the side of the road – Ali’s first squating experience 😂
Alice also had her 3 year old preschool picture day today. She was excited to smile big!
Josh has been on work travel this week and we are all glad to have daddy home! 🙌🏼
Hope your week was swell!!
