Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all our family and friends!!! Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. It is so good to have a day to think of our blessings. I've been thinking of mine this whole month, and my heart is so full of gratitude. The Lord really does take care of us. Last night for Family Night, Rebecca and I made this turkey and it didn't take us long to fill up the feathers with our blessings. Anyway, the turkey turned out really cute. That's the only turkey I know how to make, thank goodness for moms and grandmas that know how to cook a real turkey! I'm excited for our Thanksgiving feast, one of the best meals of the year! And here's something else that is cute...Rebecca in the snow. She loves it!!
I'm not a fan of cold and snow but just like everything, Rebecca makes it a lot more fun.

I did it!

Well, here is the quilt I made for Rebecca for Christmas. It is beautiful and when I look at it, I truly can not belive that I MADE IT. The last time I touched a sewing machine was in 7th grade to make the ugliest windsock ever. I saw this quilt pattern at the beginning of this year though, and I was in love. I HAD to make it! I guess this goes to show that you can learn to do anything! I'm really proud of it, and Rebecca loves it. She always pretended to smell the flowers whenever I'd work on it. THANK YOU to Seth's sisters and mom for helping me step by step. I could not have figured it out on my own!

Other than that, not too much is going on. I spend my days with these darlings.

I'm remembering how sweet little babies are...there is nothing better in the world than cuddling with a sleeping baby. I love it.

My days are a bit hectic and crazy at times, but it is good to be busy. It is exhausting some days, I'm always doing something for some little person.

Calista is Rebecca's best friend. She looks forward to her coming every single day. On the weekends she is so bummed because it's just me and her. She is such a social little girl. She loves to play and dance and talk. She and Calista have the funniest conversations.

I break up plenty of fights, but most of the time, they just love each other, it is so cute.
Seth started a new job installing garage doors at night. He registered for school, starting in January. I've been making all kinds of pumpkin desserts and hanging onto fall as long as I can. I'm not looking forward to the snowy cold winter. We're excited for next week when we'll be able to see our family and have fun together.

Happy Halloween!

We made spider hats for fun last week. Here are the girls saying, "AHHHH!! Scary Spider!!!" They are so funny. The best part of Halloween was that Grandma and Grandma came up to be with us! We had a fun weekend together. Here we are-the three Lynns, as my aunt calls us- (Lynn, Kristy Lynn and Rebecca Lynn) carving Rebecca's pumpkin.
She was very interested. Each year is just better than the last. This was such a fun Halloween with her!

She had been waiting and waiting for this day, to paint her face green and be a little witch. Everywhere we went the past week or so, she'd tell people, "I'm going to be a witch. Paint my face green!"

Here's Rebecca and Grandpa at the Trunk-or-Treat. Rebecca caught on to the Trick-or-Treat concept really quickly! She sure loved it. What a fun day, and we are so glad Grandma and Grandpa could spend it with us!
