Wow.. as I get older the days, months and years seem to just go by faster. We have been out of our old house for about a 2 months now, which seems like forever!! Don't get me wrong I'm super happy about having a place close by to rent but I'm ready to have a house back..Update on our new house.. We close on our 4 acres end of October and hopefully start building Nov 1!!! We have our house plans finally and now we are just waiting on the perk test and city approval....
We have had a busy September both of Ben's sisters came to town two separate weekends. Heather lives in NY and Cassie lives in CA... We love when they come home and miss them so much when the leave. The girls are crazy about their Aunts! We also celebrated Audrey's 5th birthday, went to visit Ben's grandparents in OK and had a family reunion on my side! It really was a month for family and a great one!!!
Ben is still working out of town and home on the weekends we are defiantly ready for him to be closer... Hopefully only 3 more weeks!
October is coming and I can't wait, lots of fun stuff going on...

When I was a little girl I LOVED crafty things.. and still do.. Rosalyn has made it very clear that she LOVES crafts and anything to do with art. Saturday I took a trip to Rose Antique Mall and look what I found! A weaving loom set. I had one as a little girl and loved it. Rosalyn worked all night on it, she still has a few more strands to go.. I'm sure this will have many hours of use!
A couple weekends ago Sept 20th to be exact we had a family reunion on my dad's side... It was really nice to see family we hadn't seen in a while. After church we headed out to Prairie Creek for burgers and family time.. The food was great and the kids had a ton of fun. We took the girls bikes so they could ride... And before we left of course someone had to get hurt. Audrey was flipping on the bars and fell head first onto the concrete! She had quit the goose egg. I didn't get as many pictures as I would have liked but these will do...

Today we celebrated Audrey's 5th Birthday.. We had a great time! She said she wanted a party at the Arvest Park! That's what she calls the Dave Peel Park in downtown Bentonville, I guess because it's by my work... She picked Hannah Montana theme and I thought it turned out really cute! The friends that came were Gracie, Gavin, Gunner, Ainsley, Rylin, and Maddie... It looked like it was going to rain but thankfully it held out until we were gone! Here are some pics...
The last five years have flown by... I remember each picture below the time and place.. I don't have a lot of baby pictures because we didn't have a digital camera until you were about 1 so they are all in albums.. Audrey mommy and daddy love you so much! You are growing into such a wonderful little girl. Your are strong-willed, caring, motherly, funny, daring, full of energy, and you love to be right at my hip all the time...but I love it because I know if I need to snuggle that you will be right there ( your trying to sit on my lap as I type this!!) Your a very smart girl.. You didn't make the kindergarten cut off this year your birthday is 15 days short of the cut off. But are loving Mrs. Michele's Preschool and will be very prepared for next year... You are always writing your name, counting, playing mommy to your babies, singing to the radio ~ you love Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift, taking dance class, or you are doing something to your brother!! I can't believe you are already 5, I can't wait to see what the next few years hold... Happy Birthday Baby....
