Life Lately

I don't know how Noah did it. I really don't. 40 days of rain (stuck on a boat with your family, animals and their poop), many more days to let the rain water receed, then finally the rainbow. Thank you, Jesus for rainbows.

We got our rainbow today after many, many days of rain. It's been rough with two kids inside all of the time, but we managed to survive with great imagination and more screen time than I'm willing to admit.

Our house is almost done and we are scheduled to move in in 10 days! What?! I posted this picture a year ago today. We were leaving our second home, moving into the rental and had just found out we were pregnant. Things have changed a lot in 365 days!

I've been super busy lining up things for the move and buying things I forgot about early on. Geez Louise, this stuff adds up, but you can't have a front porch without a swing, am I right?

Besides house stuff, here's what we've been doing lately.

Miller is in FULL princess mode!

Wedge this guy in some pillows and he's happy long enough for me to use the bathroom alone.

On Saturday, we headed to my parents' house so Ryan could attend the Clemson/FSU game (go tigers!) and I dragged the kids up so I could visit a huge fabric store in their town. We ran into my mom's college roommate & the mom of MY college roommate. Its a really neat story & we're hoping Miller & Mary Eliza might make 3rd generation roomies!

I didn't have any luck at the fabric store, but man, I had some major luck online!

I'm working on our living room, kitchen and dining room first. The 3 fabrics on the right are possible choices for dining room curtains. The multi-colored fabric will be throw pillows for our couches. Still looking for a coordinating fabric for the chairs I've yet to buy. Baby steps.

Miller LOVES her cousins, Jake and Graham. She's always played with Jake, but now that Graham is getting older, these two seem to be closer than ever. They're exactly a year apart & I predict these two will cause some trouble for us.

Miller's imagination has been in full force lately. She's been making up new dances every day and she makes us sit and watch her every single time. Sometimes Ryan gets put into the routines.

Price started rolling this week! 

Miller is super excited to take all of her toys to the new house. I'm so thankful to have a playroom in the new house so that she can spread out & really play. Next Friday can't get here fast enough!

Halloween + Life Lately

For the 2nd year in a row we trick-or-treated with this crew. We were missing Caiden, as this was his first Halloween in Virginia, and William. They help complete this crazy village. 

These two had a ball getting all of their candy!

On Wednesday, Price and I attended the fall party at Miller's preschool.

She had a ball showing us all of her artwork.

Because it had been raining all morning, their pumpkin hunt was moved inside. It didn't stop these two-year-olds from having fun!

Got one!

Hannah Beth, Konnor & Miller. Sweet friends!

Miller wants Proce to play with her so badly. She settles for this most of the time.

When Price sleeps, we play outside as much as possible.

This fall is turning out to be pretty perfect!

House Update

The hardwood floors are being stained this week. Here are some before pictures.

The glass doors went in for our shower.

I'm loving our bathroom!

Price is such a trooper for all of our house visits!

We are about 2-2.5 weeks out from moving in! Eeeek!!! 😀😀😀

Friday Funday

Don't you love how a day can start out so normal, but can turn into one of your favorites? Today was one of those.

Ryan & I have been meaning to get down to Barnwell since Price was born. Traveling with two young kids isn't our favorite activity (that's putting it nicely), but we were anxious to get down there so Ryan's grandmother could meet Price.

It's Friday & it's football season, so we're decked out in our tiger gear!

Ryan's sister, Megan, is our favorite babysitter!

Megan caught wind that I had a major #momfail and STILL hadn't carved a pumpkin with Miller. Bless her sweet heart, she helped us carve a tiger paw pumpkin.

After pumpkin carving & naps, we finally made it to Momma Grubbs' house & spent some quality time with her.

We made it back to Lexington just in time to grab Rush's and check on the progress at the new house before the sun set.

I'm loving Halloween this year with Miller. Tomorrow should be so much fun!
