Fall Mornings, Fields of Faith, and Furniture

We've had beautiful mornings this week and have enjoyed throwing on whatever clothes and playing for awhile before lunch the past few days.

The WBC FCA hosted Fields of Faith a few weeks ago at Hoxie high school.  This was the largest crowd ever since the event started in Lawrence County.  I always get so teary-eyed and proud of these students!

During fall break, the girls spent 2 nights at my moms so I had 2 nights to myself.  I started by visiting my dear friend Courtney and meeting her triplets!!  Mom gave us her old guest room furniture, so I spent my break painting and turning Langley's room into a big girl room.  I didn't have room for the box spring and bed frame, so she is sleeping on a mattress on the floor, but she loves it!!  It sure beats the toddler bed that her feet were hanging off of!

And, just for bonus, Aubrey always looks so funny in time out.  Half the time she puts herself there or wants to join her in trouble.

They are Weird, but I love Them.

If I looked tired and annoyed...I was.

Surprisingly, Aubrey does well with the painting.  This keeps them entertained for awhile, but I have to watch them closely the entire time.

Just some pictures in their fall clothes.  

We always have to do a "'silly picture" these days.

The most embarrassing thing of my adult life - so far- is how these children yell "DADDY!!!!" at every male they see in public.  I took them both to WM on Monday and had a long list (I usually avoid this situation at all costs.) They called men of every size, age, and color daddy.  I was so embarrassed; I wished I was wearing a sign that said "they know their dad, they have the same dad, he lives in our house, I am married to their dad."  I mean how ridiculous is it to have to have a serious long talk about how we do NOT yell "DADDY" at anyone except your real dad, and that you know exactly what your dad looks like, and that you know if he is not with us, he is working?  They are so weird sometimes!!!  What in the world?!  
And, no that was not the first time they've yelled daddy at strange men in public, so I think (HOPE) I've put a stop to it!

Looking for Treasure

My girls can not go outside without getting filthy.  I mean just getting in the car usually involves someone falling in mud or picking up some trash that has blown in the yard.

Anyway, it's always fun (when they already need a bath) to just let them have at it.  They dig and pick up and pour dirt (and ant hills) on each other's head.

They also want to pick up and "collect" everything.  A simple bag or bucket keeps them entertained for awhile.  This day, one collected sticks and the other collected rocks.  After 45 minutes I put them straight into the tub!  Langley's eyes stayed red the rest of the day - our allergies are brutal!

And, just because she's cute, here's my little buddy as we wait on sissy during her dance class.

So, September has taken the title of the WORST month for our family.  It used to be October, but now, the hardest month for us is September.  October has been a little gentler to us so far.

Happy Wednesday!

End of September

Showing me some of her ballet stretches...

Crazy hair night at AWANA...the "bowhawk"

Our precious cheerleader didn't quite cheer hard enough last week.
