Living with REAL intent

I just watched this video and I loved it! I think it is so easy to let your life pass by and just go through the motions or get stuck on the computer in a virtual world. I have been trying to make all of my actions more meaningful and make sure I am doing the Lord's will. I love how this video talked about how things need to be done with real intent. I recommend it!

Date Night Idea- Learn to Dance

This is especially one of my favorites because I love to dance! I think Andrew has fun too but I suspect he does it to be nice to me. We just go go to the library and borrow how-to-dance videos. We have gotten different kinds of swing and ballroom. It is fun to experiment with a new kind of dance when absolutely no one else is watching and you are with somebody who already loves you. Unfortunately we have not retained any knowledge we might have gained from these date nights but they are always fun anyway!

Andrew did the Movember thing.

Tucker's birthday

Tucker looked forward to his birthday for a long time. (I guess most kids do...) but he only thought about his cake. Whenever I asked him what he wanted for presents, he just talked about his cake. He chose a Thomas the Train cake. I am totally still learning about cakes but Andrew and I did our best and Tucker liked it at least. However, it took soooo much frosting. This picture of it is when it was very chilled. As soon as it was room temperature everything just slid off!

Our cute trick-or-treaters. (Well, Miles didn't go...)

Carving Pumpkins

Adelia & Tucker were so excited to carve pumpkins. Our kind neighbors gave us some awesome pumpkins that they grew. As Andrew and I started scooping out the innards (there was NO way that our kids were going to touch it), I realized how ironic it was that Adelia and Tucker were the excited ones, because they were pretty much just observers. They did, however, choose what their pumpkin faces would look like. I "helped" Adelia, and Andrew "helped" Tucker. We had fun. I love holidays.

Our Garden

I just wanted to post about our awesome garden because we are so proud of it! We had so much fun and almost everything was successful. Tucker's favorite crop was the carrots. Every day he wanted us to go dig one up. We canned (for the first time) pickles, tomato sauce, beets, and relish. We learned that we need to plant more tomatoes and that maybe we don't need 7 zucchini plants ( I know. I know. What were we thinking!?!) As much as I loved it I am pretty excited to not feel the need to go weeding for a few months.
