Dear October 2018,
You are always a month filled with PUMPKIN everything! This month we enjoyed the pumpkin patch, plenty of pumpkin spice, carving pumpkins, lots of candy corn, creative costumes, a fall festival and Kensie’s 1st Halloween!
Thank goodness the temperature has cooled down, it actually felt like fall for a few days this month with the added bonus of rain.
Soccer season has also kicked-in which is always a favorite around here, so we are excited for more sports-filled Saturdays.
But of course, November we are grateful for your arrival… Bring on the feast!

Dear September 2018,
You were a great month! We went on a few day trips, and our first family of 5 camping trip! The happiest camper was ironically the baby! The girls have enjoyed their first quarter of school, learning new things and sharing in special moments! Payton especially loved riding in a fire truck!
Fall festivities have begun, including our favorite – football! September has also kicked off the fall season with a little pumpkin spice, and now let’s get a move on to October and cooler temps!

Dear August 2018,
You were a busy month and truthfully, I am glad you are over…. only because we are now one month closer to cooler weather. I am ready for all things fall – football, cooler weather, pumpkin spice season… LET’S GO! Good bye August!
September, we are welcoming you with open arms!

Dear July 2018,
WOW doesn’t even cover it, what a month! You were a month of FIRSTS and very special occasions. First day of first grade, first day of preschool, and Kensie’s first swim, staycation & Diamondbacks Game! We had a 6th birthday, baby girl turned 3 months old, and we made our first trip to the mountains as a family of five! It was definitely one of my favorite months for our family, mainly because we made the most of every moment. Yay for family time!
August, you have very large shoes to fill! We are excited to see where this new school year takes us!

Dear June 2018,
Yay for summer fun. We have spent the month enjoying church camps, BBQing with friends, going on memorable family dates and soaking up swim lessons. Sleeping in and later nights have also been a new adventure with kiddos, but hey, it’s what summer is all about. It was also a month of special celebrations; Father’s Day, Payton’s 1st Dance Recital and our 10 Year Wedding Anniversary (Congrats on 10 years babe!!!). We’ve spent more hours than we can count just snuggling with baby Kensie. How can she be 2 months old already!?
It is crazy to think that July already brings the adventure of a new school year… So in the mean time, we are going to cherish the next four weeks of non-scheduled and spontaneous summer family fun! Bring on July!

Dear May 2018,
May, Where did you go? Half of the month I spent thinking it was still April, blame it on the newborn sleep deprivation, haha! In all seriousness, it flew by. We spent the month watching our little babe eat and sleep her way through each day. Although we’re all sleep deprived, she has been the biggest blessing to our family – totally worth it! We also watched our oldest graduate up to first grade. How can kindergarten be over, que mom tears!
With June upon us, we’ll do as we always do this time of year… duck out of the AZ heat as much as possible. And of course making memories every second that we can! Gotta love summer vacation!

Dear April 2018,
What a month!!! I started the month out really pregnant, with a sweet baby kicking in my tummy and ended the month with the most beautiful GIRL in my arms. After a month of counting down the last days of our pregnancy it was a time filled with so many happy tears, excitement, anticipation and the thrill of change. April you made us a family of 5, so complete with three little girls. We are simultaneously sleep deprived, happy, and beyond blessed! Haha – doing our best to embrace life in the newborn stage! I also was blessed with celebrating my 33rd birthday as a mom of three and snuggling my sweet little birthday present. April 2018 will always be an extremely special month for us.
May, we are so excited for more firsts to come as we settle into our new family routine.

Dear March 2018,
I am a little late thanking you for a month of holiday celebrations and family fun, but pregnancy brain won this time. As I hit the end of pregnancy, you were a month filled with so much joy! We celebrated all things green, a puppy-themed 3rd birthday party, bunnies and egg hunts and special family time before this little bump joins us in April.
So April, YES, we are more than ready for you and finally meeting our baby. This will be a magical month!

Dear February 2018,
February 2018, you did not disappoint in the LOVE department, it definitely was a red and pink-filled 28 days! It was a month filled with family time and of course lots of sweets! Let’s just face it, little girls just love everything Valentines! The girls had their first father daughter dance, and it was beyond adorable. The weather got the love memo as well, and has been dreamy and chilly – my favorite! We were able to take a family trip to the mountains for some much needed bundled-up family time. And now as we enter March we have a 3 year old birthday to celebrate and just a few weeks to-go before baby #3 joins the party! So much to look forward to!

Dear January 2018,
January welcomed me into the third trimester for baby number three… Ahhh, how can this be?! It doesn’t seem possible! The new year is here and the new baby will be with us soon!
Travis and I were able to enjoy a relaxing BabyMoon at just the right time. We are so grateful for our time away and the fun we were able to share… Just the two of us! After our relaxing getaway, we made it home just in time to each partake in this season of sickness, oh joy! I am ready for some complete healing and looking onward and upward to a healthy, family-fun-filled February.
