Fall Favorites

Yes, we are busy. Yes, I know I'm WAY behind on posting. Yes, life is passing by at what seems like lightspeed. Yes, blogging takes a backseat to everything else in my life. :)
Here's my way of "catching up":
Favorites from Fall 2013

Miss Mary Claire! Everyday is an adventure with this girl!

Box seats at the U of M game with our cousin, Owen Thomas. We had so much fun!

Cousins in the 2013 Cotton Pickin' 5k
Matthew, Alex, Katherine, Jan, Me, Cindy
Isaac, Harris, Mary Claire, Henry, Hardy, John Owen, Jonah
This was the Cotton Pickin' 5k in Somerville on Sept. 14th. My cousins, Matthew and Alex, and their families participated with us. The route begins and finishes in front of my grandmother's house on East Street in Somerville, so we try to participate each year.  It's nice to be able to do things like this with our family.
Surprise! We just found out that we are going to have a new cousin in May 2014!
We are secretly wishing for an Armour girl! :)

A Tea Party Day at school!
Mimi made the special outfit...Thank you, Mimi!

Naptime with Daddy
I love moments like this!

Mary Claire's field trip to the Pumpkin Patch in October.   

Mary Claire's Upward soccer team on the last day. She showed a lot of improvement this year. She actually stayed on the field during the game and kicked the ball a few times. :)

Jonah and his Upward soccer trophy

John Owen was sad to see Upward soccer end. He loves playing!

Mary Claire attended her first painting party for Anna Brooke's birthday! She loved it!!
I think she has a true interest in painting. Santa might have to bring some art supplies...

These guys spent some time fishing at Jan's Uncle Bubba's Saturday afternoon. Caught quite a few bass!

Enjoying our fall days and time together!
