We are drinking in this weekend of fabulousness until every last drop.
Our hearts filling up with food and joy.
Beginning with the continuation of costumes and cooking up ideas for such occasions.
Emma had her Halloween party and parade this week at school. Sister went as me.
Yep, when asked "Who are you, Emma?" she responded with "I'm Meg Doke."
I must say it's an interesting and somewhat frightening thought to tell your child as they hop out of the car "Okay honey, just talk and act like mama."
Oh crap. Whose idea was this?
We met up with the Cochell's and Ho's. Always a treat.
I bought this orange fleece the day before I got married, no idea why but it's funny to me.
My lovely friend Shannon and her precious baby girl, Cambelle Grace. By far the cutest lion ever. Love me some baby girls in costume.
And baby girl knows she is beyond loved by him.
Our friends, the Jenkin's, are having a fabulous fall as well. In fact, I'd say they have just plain hit the jackpot of awesomeness and goodness of the Lord.
A few months ago they brought home 2 little ones from the Ukraine. Bringing home royalty into the fold of family. Into the blessing of love and affection. Forever.
So today we celebrated.
And this precious one. If you know Annie Margaret, you are blessed. She is just truly a treasure to be around and her life speaks volumes of His healing power and fulfillment of promise.
Alison, me, Doc Moffit
Beth, Abbey, Alice
And time set aside to pray over this precious family of 5. Declaring His promise of plans and provision, of health and joy, rest and grace for this season and the seasons to come.
He is so good. We are thankful.
We love this family. Just love them to pieces. They are ambassadors for His kingdom, for the steadfast pursuit of their rainbows, their children full of hope and promise.
Welcome home little ones, you are loved more than you know.
None of it got done. Not one bit. I opted for a nice, long afternoon nap curled up next to 2 little girls. One staring back at me just like she did as a newborn. The other one a bit giddy and flopping around like a fish until her energy ended and she sacked out.
We needed our rest, you know.
Tasty little bits.
I love fall for so many reasons. Love the smells, the kitchen goodness, the pumpkin decor, the crisp cool air, the football games on television. Just love the whole thing.
And we happily partook, drinking in deeply.
"He has shown His kindness by giving you rain from heaven and crops in their seasons,
filling up our hearts with food and joy."
