Life is full right now.
Lots of things going on, lots of celebrating, and lots of just good stuff.
Aubrey's school had a Fall Festival / Carnival on Friday.
When I was in elementary school, my mom made a chocolate cake and added spooky spiders on top for my Fall Festival's Cake Walk. I thought it would be fun to recreate it for Aubrey's school's "Sweet Walk" this year. Only I found out the day of that you're not supposed to bring a cake (my first clue should have been that it's not called a "Cake" Walk...). Oops. Newbie mistake. Apparently parents are supposed to just make little treats for the kids to pick out. Luckily the PTO thought the spider cake was great, and ended up adding it to the school auction!
The girls had a blast at the carnival that night. Racing from room to room playing games, getting their face painted, and stuffing their face with food food food!
And speaking of food! This sweet boy got his first taste of cake on his FIRST birthday!
Oh how this cutie-pie is LOVED. It was a wonderful Saturday getting to celebrate this precious one!
His Mama threw THE cutest puppy party for him...
The weather was beyond perfect on Saturday.
We decided that evening to have a little bonfire out at Zubie's farm. It was so wonderful!
At one point Aubrey stated, "Oh, I just LOVE this day!" :)
This stage in our family's life right now is so full of blessings. It's not always perfect, but there are certainly moments where I feel overwhelmed with gratitude.
