This crazy life

I can't believe we are already a third of the way through October and I'm just realizing that it is fall--My favorite season! I love cool nights, warm days, shorter days, candles burning, visiting the pumpkin patch, pumpkin flavored desserts, wearing sweaters, and celebrating birthdays.
Yep, within 2 weeks we have 6 birthdays in our family. Our most significant birthday this month is Max's. Our little man is turning ONE! So crazy how fast a year flies by! I find it amazing how much a person can change in one year. To go from this completely helpless, fragile being who just took his first breath, who is seeing the people who love him the most for the first this handsome, opinionated, fun little boy who just loves to smile and give high fives.He is our little pumpkin! So, we're celebrating his first birthday with a party at the pumpkin patch. I confess, I go a little overboard on first birthday celebrations. This morning I was making cupcakes--none other than Pumpkin Spice! I'll wait to frost them tomorrow. Do you think I made enough?!?Other happy news: We just got new carpet! After 12 years, 3 kids, 2 dogs and many parties, our white carpet was officially evicted. White! What were we thinking?!? Our new dark-brown speckled carpet looks and feels AMAZING!

Got to run! Time to finish the details for tomorrow's party and take care of two sick kids. I'm really praying everyone is healthy for the weekend. Ugh... it has been one CRAZY week!

Thanks for checking in!
