Football Funday {November '16}

The football season wrapped up in mid-November. We've moved into the recruiting phase, but I figured I'd better wrap up the season ;)

11/5 SNU v. Henderson 7-40
11/12 SNU @ Oklahoma Baptist 20-10 Winner, Winner

my favorite part of the game…the kids running to give daddy a big hug after the game…they don't care about the score, they just want to love on their daddy!
sweet friends

The final game was a close away game so we made the short trek and I got to sit in the stands for the 1st time this season. It was a beautiful fall day and the kids spent most of the time in the bounce house so I actually enjoyed watching the game. And to top it off SNU won! What a great way to end the season!!!

Thanksgiving {2016}

For Thanksgiving we traveled to CO for a whirlwind holiday that included Thanksgiving, my grandparents 60th wedding anniversary, and the arrival of a new cousin from China! It was 3 days jam-packed with celebrations!


This was how Evy spent most of her 1st Thanksgiving. It's a rough life!



All ready for the Thanksgiving meal! We went to my aunt's house for the meal. There was lots of family and good food! We even enjoyed a rousing game of Speak Out. I should have taken pictures of that ;)


More Papa and Evy

On Friday we got all dressed up for a night on the town to celebrate Papa & Tache's 60th wedding anniversary.



We even got to ride in a limo!


After dinner we headed to the airport to welcome Uncle Adam, Aunt Wendy and Jonathan home from China. The kids had a blast making signs and getting balloons to welcome Jonathan home!



The next morning we left for home. And on the drive home we had another treat. We met Papa and Mema at a restaurant so Papa could meet Evy!

OK to OH

For  my birthday this year Kyle gifted me with a trip to OH to visit friends and family! I never would have thought that I would choose Ohio as my vacation destination of choice, but I couldn't have been more excited!


The day after my birthday Evy and I boarded her 1st flight. This travel day didn't go as planned…we boarded our early morning flight and sat in the plane for an hour before we deboarded…we were delayed 2.5 hours due to O'Hare being closed. I missed my connecting flight and was rerouted to New Jersey then to Canton. We did a lot of waiting in O'Hare then on a whim I went to my gate and learned there was an earlier flight for CAK and miraculously we got on via standby. However, our bags didn't have time to change routes so they would come in the on the next flight from New Jersey…well that flight was delayed and then cancelled and to make a long story short Evy and I were without bags and a car seat for 3 days ;) I thought I would keep things light by checking all the luggage and not bringing a stroller…that was a bad idea as my 7 hours of travel turned into 16 hours. Thankfully, Evy was a champ! She did great in the baby carrier and never made a peep on the flights!


Once we arrived in Canton I rented a car and drove to my sister's house. They are recent OH transplants so it was fun to see their new house and surroundings. It was also great to spend time with my sister and play with my nephews.


And Evy got to meet some of her cousins!





After a few days I traveled back to Canton where I got hardly any sleep, but  had tons of fun! Evy met another Aunt, Uncle and cousin. We went to a girl's night and stayed out way to too late. We enjoyed our 3rd annual Friendsgiving, got to spend time with lots of friends, ate my favorite ice cream, went to our old church and drove by our old house. Evy even saw her first snow!

We were sad to leave, but excited to get home to our people. I was exhausted, but the flights home went smoothly and Evy did great! So thankful for the little getaway and the chance to see friends I haven't seen in almost a year!

Let's go to the Hop!

Sawyer had his first school concert in November. It was 50's themed and they all dressed for the part. It was soooo adorable. They sang songs like Rock Around the Clock, Sandman and Rockin' Robin.

Evy Kay {2 months}


No 2 month stats because I had to cancel her appointment. I will update this once we know her height and weight.


Our little Evy Kay is so sweet! She sleeps great usually taking a long afternoon nap and then she sleeps from 10:30 pm to 5:30 or 6 am.

She is the fussiest in the evening.

She is starting to smile more especially after she has eaten.


She loves it when people talk to her.

She is wearing 0-3 month clothes and size 1 diapers.

She has dark brown eyes.

She dealt with some baby acne and cradle cap this month, but that seems to be clearing up.

Evy Love


When did my 2 year old become a giant?


Sawyer loves to love on Evy. He especially loves to sing her a tune when she's crying. It almost always works to soothe her.


This boy can be a bit rough, but her certainly loves his baby!
