I really woke up this morning wanting to do better. I am just so grateful for the little things that seem to pass by through our lives that make such a big difference. Whether it be friends, stories, kids, or even something like food...:) I know that many things have inspired me to want to be better. So many thoughts and stories from people I know well and people I have never met. I know that it isn't any coincidence either that things happen the way they do. I am learning more and more everyday. I love the insipiration that comes to do better. I am not perfect and I fail short day after day, but I am grateful that we can pick back up each day and start over and try again. How lucky we are and how blessed I feel. I don't know what will come my way in my life, but what I do know is that if I can keep my friends and family close come what may. With thanksgiving around the corner I find myself feeling more and more thankful for the little things I have in my life and how I don't want to take anything for grantid. And to fully live each day and try to be happy despite all the turmoil around us.

Emma was tinkerbell. Carston was a
tiger and it didn't take him long to
figure out how to get candy.

Boston and his other two friends, Carter
and Brendyn were Iron Man!

I just love this baby

Carston is such a happy baby, and everytime
he smiles I just want to squeeze him!

More of Deep Creek

Just playing in the cold waterfall. The kids loved it!!!


These boys would spend every second they could with each. Brendyn is in there just his legs are showing. All 3 of these boys decided they needed to be iron man for Halloween. So, there will be 3 iron mans running around on Oct. 31st!!!

Since our kids like to run with each other all the time, we have spent a lot of time with each and find that we just love it as much as the kids!!!
