Finally Fall

The last few days have been wonderful. We continue to tell people who haven't known yet that we are having twin boys and being able to talk to them and use their names is so cool. It's just starting to feel more and more real. Jack says both of their names really well and always has this cheeky smile on his face when he does. I have tried to get him to sit still so he can feel them, but he doesn't really care too. Once they are bigger and he can see them rolling around I think he'll be much more interested :)

I started going through all of Jack's clothes from newborn to things he just grew out of. Organizing them into sizes and bins. He had the best clothes, and I can't wait to use them again! They are all the wrong season, but we'll make it work! I've been registering online and having fun chatting and brainstorming ideas for their bedroom. I'm pretty excited about it :) My shower is just over 40 days away and I know with the holidays things are just going to fly by!

This weekend holds another Worship Concert at our church so hubby is pretty darn busy. And we're planning on finally carving our pumpkins while watching some good football on T.V. I bought some canned pumpkin and am ready to bake some yummy bread with cream cheese frosting! It's pretty much my fall favorite...that and hot cider! We're going to be getting our first big storm of the season this weekend, and I am SO ready for the rain to just dump on us! I love it!

Hope you all have some fun plans for the weekend! My new blog design should be up in the next few weeks...I'm anxious to see what Hannah does!

I Believe He is Faithful

This past Tuesday I got a phone call from our caseworker that was nothing short of a gut punch. After hanging up the phone I started sobbing right there in the Pilot gas station parking lot. I had just had my hair cut for the first time in over a year, and was coming off of weeks of illness and texted Trevor that I was going to drive around for a bit and enjoy some quiet and fresh air. I pulled off to grab a bite from good ol Taco Bell when the phone call came through.  The words she spoke were the last things we wanted to hear- in fact they were the things we’ve been praying we would not hear this entire past year. It seemed unfathomable, and in fact is quite ludicrous which she herself admitted to thinking as well. I cannot imagine working for a system that so blatantly traumatizes children who have been victims of trauma already. It is hard enough as a foster parent to watch this happen. I cried, I texted Trevor I couldn’t come home until she was in bed, that I had gotten a phone …

BeautiControl Giveaway!

Have you heard of BeautiControl? This is an incredible line of skin care products that truly work! It's skin care, bath and body, makeup and men's care!
When I was pregnant a friend of mine who sells this came over and pampered me and a few friends, and then I started using the face system just before the babies were born. It did wonders. Then I ran out, and I put it off and my skin got bad again. And then about 2 weeks ago I started using it again. Wow. A visible difference in just two weeks. It looks better and feels better!
I am super picky about my skincare items, and I don't buy just anything.  Plus, I still struggle with breakouts. This stuff not only smells amazing, and makes my skin feel incredibly soft, but it does it's job.
They have a huge line that you will have to check out, just go over to their website and browse around! You can see if there is a consultant in your area and host a spa party!!!

Today I am giving away a Chocolate Indulgence Kit! Um, yummy.

It includes *…
