We played outside this morning before the rain came.

Mekhi pushed his wheel barrow all around the backyard and gathered sticks. This boy and his love for sticks!

We went to lunch with dad today. We forgot to get a picture as a family so he took a picture of us when we got home.

Mekhi didn’t want to stand. He just wanted to roll around on the ground.

I really wish you could see the live photos of Mekhi. Maybe I can post a gif or find a way to do it and post them tomorrow. He is so funny. He is dramatic and his facial expressions are priceless. While looking through the photos I couldn’t stop cracking up . My style is the 70s vibe. Speaking of 70s vibe. Check out our ovens.

Our ovens haven’t been working for awhile. They get to hot and then start cooling off instead of staying at the right temperature, so we haven’t had successful baking experiences. We had our home warranty come out again today. Found out they don’t make the specific part we need so they are going to give us some money to get a new one. Yay!! The oven is the original from when they built the home, somewhere around 40 years old. At one point someone tried painting them. Really people?

Tornado sirens went off 4 times today while I was working on my prints. The tornado was nearby, thankfully it didn’t hit us. This was a fun part of the day.

We had our date night tonight and went to BJ’s Brewhouse. Yummy!!  Had to get a photo of him. He barely ever is in photos.

Today was a relaxing day. We had to get one of Cora’s shots this morning. We space out her shots and I try and only give her one at a time. We were the family that didn’t want to give our kids immunizations but after doing fostering we had no choice with Mekhi – we had to give them all to him. With Cora we are saying no to some and spacing out even more than we did with Mekhi. How do you feel about immunizations? I am right in the middle of giving the kids them and not giving them. I understand both sides.

This is Cora after her shot. She did so good. She cries for a second and then I feed her and she is her happy self again.

We were right by the mall so went to get some fall clothes for Mekhi. We will have to get some for Cora next month. Where are your favorite places to shop for kids clothes? I love jcrew, h&m, gap, zara, peek kids, oshkosh, old navy and sometimes carters, janie and jack, and thrift stores have cute things too. I wish I could always buy from etsy and support all the other handmade clothing out there. I need to get better at that.

Us heading to the car after shopping. Mekhi wants the bags. Cora loves my keys. Thankfully Mekhi had pretend keys when he was little so I can swap them out for mine to drive.

After we got home before we headed inside. They played with the fall leaves on the ground.

I decide to get in a photo so I can have a photo once a day with them. They aren’t even realizing I’m right beside them. Ha!

Mekhi was over sitting and picture taking. Caught him putting leaves on her head. He loves putting things on top of her head. It is the perfect level I guess for him to treat her head like a table or something, who knows?!

Mekhi was off. She watches his every move. Had to get this one by herself. She is such a beauty. I got this cute zara outfit long before I was even pregnant. I thought it was the cutest little outfit. My sis got her cute moccasions.

Kids both went down at the same time again today which meant I got to read my devotions and bible plus have my tea. Win for me! What are your favorite devotionals?

The rest of the day I listened to Christmas music and started making a christmas list for the kids to give to grandparents and family members. They always ask each year and I never have one ready. I will be ready this year!

If you want to listen to my Christmas playlist from last year head on over to rdio. I even have a kids Christmas playlist.

I will be posting my Christmas wishlist for Mekhi and one for Cora too soon.
