Dear November 2019,
As always, you were a month filled with thankfulness! We celebrated daddy’s birthday and we soaked up all the fun turkey-day school festivities while preparing for the big family feast! We spent lots of quality family time together as we enjoyed riding bikes around in the amazing cooler and rainy weather that you brought us! We stood as a family and dedicated ourselves to raise Payton and Kensie in a Jesus loving home surrounded by encouragement and support. And we spent a maroon and gold filled day at ASU Homecoming, taking the girls back to where it all began for our family. Wow, it was a special month!
December… we are so excited for you and the special memories you will bring us in this festive month!!
:: Our Month in 9 Squares – November 2019 ::
Dear October 2019,
You were a month of soccer, more soccer and a slice of pumpkin everything. You are always one of our favorite months filled with decorating the house for Halloween to picking out cute costumes… We always adore October with the kiddos!
This month was filled with changing weather (It almost feels like fall here!) to school parties and costume events. It was a month filled with fun and, of course, … lots of candy! Did I mention soccer??? With two girls playing we are on the field a lot, but we wouldn’t want it any other way.
As we prepare for November and the grateful-thankful month ahead, we look back with a smile and we look forward with excitement!

They picked well this year! We decided to let the girls select costumes that made them happy! So we jumped on Amazon/Target online and let the girls browse and pick what stood out to them. As an added bonus we let the big sisters select Kensie’s costume, and I am pretty sure she is not thrilled about the head piece. HaHa – The life of the littlest sister!

Fall means football… and I love fall!
To successfully host a family-friendly home-gating party you need to focus on three main aspects: tasty treats, a kids activity corner & of course team spirit!

If you are anything like me, a good cup of brew is NEEDED to start your day off right. Now that fall has arrived, I have been enjoying the cooler weather, which also means I finally get to transition my morning cup of iced coffee to a nice steamy HOT cup of coffee. There is truly nothing better than waking up to the amazing smell of a fresh brewed cup of coffee in your home; But First, Coffee.
Running behind is my normal morning phenomanon. Funny how having kids does this – I used to be organized and on time! Thankfully my morning brew is done in my convenient single serving Keurig machine, so it is reliable and fast. I need a speedy constant in my life and Keurig is just that… there is however a slight problem, I dislike buying the expensive and non ecofriendly K-cups, and I can never seem to find a flavor that I enjoy. I like to buy fun flavored bags of coffee, especially during the holidays, and I am always bummed that to enjoy them I have to bring out the bulky coffee pot. Thankfully I have found a solution to this problem: Ekobrew.
Fall is in the Air… and it smells amazing. I can’t get enough of the incredible scents of the season so I wanted to share 10 of my favorite candles that every home must have! Fill your home with the beautiful notes of buttercream, pumpkin spice, coffee beans, spiked cider, cedar wood and a tinge of cinnamon! There is nothing more pleasant than entering a home with dazzling candles flickering and being welcomed with sensational smells… its all about the ambiance!
Here are 10 of my favorite fall candles…
