We had a ton of fun with our friends, the Portnoys, at Butler Pumpkin Patch.

Maddie is loving school- making friends, learning to do math, spelling, and reading. She's taking an Art class and enjoying that, too.
While Maddie is at school, we keep busy with...
My ballet girl.
She loves this class.
My two little helpers making butternut squash soup.
The deer family keeps coming in our yard. The little baby still has her spots!
We went on a walk collecting fall things.
Geneva loved watching the men work on our road- she clapped and cheered them on!
Savannah loves to run out to wave to the trash men.
After school Friday we went on an impromptu picnic at the park. Geneva had been home sick with a fever all week, so we could finally get out!
I've found that my girls enjoy the simple things in life, like the trash truck and parks, much more than the big events we sometimes plan and spend money on. I'm trying to remember that as we make memories and spend time together as a family. Keep it sweet and simple.

It's amazing how full each day is! I'm finding it hard to blog these days or get much time to do anything besides what's next!!
Maddie and I went out with some friends for a ladies tea.
Mrs. "B" taught the girls manners.
Super excited for candy, since the fancy desserts weren't her "cup of tea".
The girls had make up done, a craft, manners lesson, and a story read along with having tea.
These two monkeys still have a wild side to them!
Thanks for the pretty dress Auntie "L"
The girls made wishes.
Geneva also had her first French Fry this week!
And Savannah started ballet class!
Lots happening this fall. We're so thankful for God's grace each day as we strive to follow Him. He gives us the strength, joy, obedience, and love that makes even menial things like grocery shopping for His glory!

Can it be true? Geneva is 11 months old?! My baby.
And it begins...she's entered into trying to play with her big sister! She likes princesses and anything Savannah is holding.
She has no fear of falling, so we've had some head bumps lately.
She loves eating. I think her favorite food right now is chicken! She's still taking two naps a day and sleeping through the night like a champ.
I love her smiles and happy personality. She seems easy going and likes to be in the middle of the action.
Look at me!
One of her favorite things to do it look out the window. She claps and says "hi" when she sees the deer walking through our yard!
I'm so thankful to the Lord her this precious gift.

My little peanut is a first grader!
Look at that uniform :)
This page is a cute print out all about Maddie.
Excited to go to class! Mrs. Ries and Mrs. Pannel are are great teachers.
Daddy was able to pray in the opening chapel this morning- sure is special to have Daddy working at the same place you go to school!
Not too excited about another picture!
We reviewed colors, read a few books, did a craft, and made this recipe...
We had a little first day of school party for Maddie when she got home. Yummy rice crispy treats with white chocolate drizzle and sprinkles.
