Do you ever look at your children and catch glimpses of the adult they are too quickly becoming? Maryn looked so grown-up this day, all confident and cute and silly. I just love this kid! She's such a free-spirit! I love it! I hope that she always maintains that awesome preschooler confidence and zest for life! My mom is always bringing snacks for the kids. This was a soccer game and she had brought each of my kids a baggie full of candy corn. Camryn had so much fun examining them and shaking them all over the place. She looked like she was holding pom-poms doing a candy corn cheer.
Owen cracks me up! One Sunday morning, he and Maryn were playing with his magic set. Maryn was completely convinced that things were disappearing FOR REAL, and she was squealing with excitement. Owen would have her close her eyes to say her magic words and quickly "make the magic happen". Maryn never quite caught on and Owen was so cute when he'd look over at me with a big smile and wink, happy to see Maryn so delighted with her tricks.
I can't believe Thanksgiving is in one short week! November has melted away and soon I'll be ultra-stressing at how behind I already am on Christmas shopping. Kevin is so great to keep me grounded. He's a get-it-done man and every year knocks out the shopping in two or three nights. Every year I promise myself that I am going to be super-organized and have it done before Thanksgiving, but it never happens. Oh, well! I guess that's just who I am.
The house is coming along great! The foundation is poured and this week they began framing. This is my favorite part! I love feeling the walls go up and imagining our crazy family running around inside of them. Hopefully they can get a lot of it done before the snow starts flying!
Have a great weekend!
