Autumn, Autumn, Autumn

There is something so addictive about little new babies. I find myself pouring over our little Autumn's every feature... those tiny toes, the ever searching eyes, itty bitty nose and so many more... too many lovelies to count.

I am thankful to have the days at home with her to drink in that lovely baby smell and the soft toughs of newborn hair.

What a lucky girl i am!

Tuesday night the fam packed up and went over to Sheppard Hills for their annual Luminaries event. Each house in the neighborhood lines the street with brown bags with candles.

It is so beautiful to see these long meandering lines of lights and all the gorgeous Christmas decorations. For those of you who know this neighborhood, you know how beautiful the homes are under normal circumstances and I'm sure you can imagine how big and tasteful the houses are at Christmas time.

Lavender took it upon herself to inspect each and every brown bag. She promptly notified us of what kind of candle was inside... Shouts of "Red" "Little" and "big" accompanied us throughout our walk.

These pics don't really show how magical the evening was, but here they are nevertheless...

also, you cats gotta check out Autumn's little outfit... It is the cutest thing I've ever seen (thanks Leah & Kate!)!!!!!!!!!!!

Sweet Days with sweet girls

Here are some excerpts of my recent days.
There is just something so fun and charming about raising little girls... like putting up their hair in pigtails for the first time, or watching in awe at the leaves blowing through the sky for the first time.
We have had such lovely days as of late.... enjoying the thrill of a new baby and celebrating the holiday season with Christmas parades and advent calendars.

So fun to be a part of little one's first things!!! God is good and we are so blessed!
