Thanksgiving was great this year. 
We had everyone here at the same time.
It was so yummy.  Everyone brought something so it wasn't 'too much' to do.
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays.  I just LOVE it.  The food, the family, the season, just perfect!

so. some time has passed, and kate has turned SEVEN.  SEVEN.  WHAT in the WORLD?
her birthday was a little different this year.
Adam was out of town-and she was ticked.
but we managed to survive and had a great time besides the star of her world being gone. ;)

favorite thing....PRESENTS

super mom didn't even make a cake, or have a birthday candle.  we went for cupcakes and tea lights.

I think she was happy anyway!

Halloween 2014

Halloween 2014 was a huge success!  Pumpkins were carved, costumes were cute, and treats were a plenty. 
The girls are getting so big, I know these days are fleeting.  Makes me a bit sad....BUT we are enjoying each and every second.
