New Blog!

I've changed hosting sites to one that I feel meets my needs a little more than blogger.
Feel free to follow me over at my new place!

She loves watermelon. 
When I buy it, it's gone by the next day.

When we say, "Where's Olivia?"
Lola starts looking for her.
Cutest thing.

It's that time of year again when our weekends are packed with events, birthday parties, and shopping. Of course, that's not a bad thing! But it leaves little room for relaxation.

On Friday, Ashlyn and I did a little Christmas shopping and got pedicures while the big kids were at school. Once they got out, we attempted to take them to the park, but they mosquitos were ridiculous and we went to their house for a bit instead. We finished the night off at a cook off that Luis's friends were cooking for.

Saturday was spent getting breakfast, going to the gym, and doing a little shopping with Maria. Our nieces then joined us for lunch, and then we ran home to get ready for the evening. We stopped to visit my grandma, and then headed to La Casona for Maria's birthday dinner.

^^Morning cuddling in bed.^^

Olivia ended up spending the night with her cousins Saturday night, so we met them for breakfast this morning to get pick her up. After that, we ran to get a birthday gift, went home to get ready, and then to Olivia's friend Ava's birthday party. While we were there, I got a text from my step dad that they made dinner and to come by. We never say no to food, so we did. Ha. 

Now we're drinking hot chocolate and watching The Walking Dead. It's the most wonderful time of the year, right? :)

Perfect weather.

I know I've mentioned it before,
but this weather has seriously been a dream.
I kind of feel like this is what summer must feel like in better,
not so hell-ish, parts of the country. Ha.
We cannot get enough park time!

She loves looking out the sunroof. 
(When we're parked, of course.)

{ Lola }

Getting closer and closer to crawling.
And closer and closer to giving mom a heart attack.

The weather has been so amazing the past
couple days and we are soaking it up!
Yesterday we met some friends at the park
for a picnic.
We're hoping this weather is here to stay for a while
and to make things like this happen more often.
Plus, fall clothes look so good on my kids. ;)

Thankful in November

I'm joining Ashlyn in her Thankful in November posts. 

Week One:

I'm thankful for the relationship I have with my husband.
We haven't always been the way we are now.
I love how our relationship has grown and that
as time goes on, we fall more in love and both
value what we have so much more.

I'm thankful for my children.
I know people that want babies more than anything
in the world.
I know that could have just as easily been me.
I don't take a single day/hour/minute for granted.

I'm thankful for our home.
Though it is small, it's been the perfect starter for us.
And we've made it ours.
Olivia loves it so much that she gets mad
any time we even talk about moving.
