A decent family photo!  Thank goodness for binki's...
Warms.  My.  Heart.
This past weekend we took the babies to Kansas City Pumpkin Patch and we had a great time.  It's definitely intended for older kids (with all the activities) but Alex and I so enjoyed taking the babies around, people watching and picking out our pumpkins.  We even saw another set of boy/girl twins that were only a few weeks younger than Bennett and Em.  Whenever I see another mama of twins, or multiples, out and about, I can't help but want to walk right up to them and say, "Girl, I understand how hard it is to do normal things with twice the baby- but you're rocking it and keep doing what you're doing."

Bennett loved the pumpkins and even tasted them.  I know B, I'm a pumpkin fan too (pumpkin spice, pumpkin bread, you know, all the basic fall things...)

T h i n g s   T o   C o m e...
We are coming up on the end of 2016 and fast.  The twins birthday party will be here before we know it.  And this is my favorite time of year, and favorite holidays all in a row (and in that order): Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.  I can't wait to celebrate them with Bennett and Emmy.  They are my favorite humans, along with Alex, and to share in the best time of the year with them gives me nothing but joy.

That being said, I need to remember to live in the moment, be present and live.  Too often I have found myself looking ahead more often than living in the now and enjoying my babies today.  I have said, "Oh, if I can just get to the weekend..." or "once they turn one..." and I'm vowing to stop this.  Time is flying and my babies won't ever be this age again.

Right at the end of the day... Emmy was about done with it all.
Trying to get a family picture where everyone is looking is proving to be rather difficult lately. 


I won't post anything political as we near this election, because frankly my heart hurts for all the hatred I've see on the Internet, TV and social media and this is a blog about being a mama, how great babies are and to watch the growth of my family.  I just ask for everyone to respect and love all lives now, election day, and every day after.   


This week is a short blog week.  Working on something special for next week.  Really exposing some truths...

Thanks for reading!
