Tomorrow is Halloween! - Insta-Friday #60

Last weekend Shane realized Elise has never experienced his shaped pancakes!
He rectified that immediately. 
 Took her on her first hayride as well.

First corn maze. We got lost. Didn't tell the kids. 

And first attack of leaves from big brother. 

So far, a pretty eventful October. 

(Oh yea, I also cut 7 inches off my hair. I like it.)

Can't wait for tomorrow!!!!

Still here.

It's Fall!

Well hello there! Anyone still around? I'm dusting off some cobwebs just for a moment since I am forcing myself to stay awake until Shane gets home from a recent trip. To Alaska. Alaska is really far away. I kind of wish I could head to Alaska for a week. Or really anywhere that had a nice hotel with a plush bed and room service. I am beat.

So why the crazy lull in blogging? Well, I'll tell you. I have three children. It doesn't really seem like a lot when you just say it like that. 3 kids. That really is only one more than two. And two is less than the American average. But take it from me, 3 is a lot.

I love having three kids. I can't believe how scrumptious my baby is. She is so funny and bright and my other two find so much joy watching her grow. Today we all sat on a blanket and laughed as she continuously tried to escape us to go eat dirt.

For the most part, being a mom to these little darlings is about as good as I could imagine it to be. With the exception that Elise does not feel the need to nap for much longer than 45 minutes at a time, which is pretty much the bane of my existence. (And let's be honest. A whole lot of the time I think I am going to freaking lose my mind. But, I've realized that is just part of the mom status quo.)

AND - one more big reason for blogging lull?.... I made the (TOTALLY INSAIN) decision to hand-make almost all my Christmas gifts. I've been working since June. I kid you not. So all that fun blogging time that I used to have around 9:30 at night? I'm at home working with a glue gun, needle and thread or pounding nails with my tiny hammer. I'll make sure to show you some of my creations coming up.

I miss ya'll! Happy Autumn :)

they are pretty cute.
