My girls turned another year older.

We decided against the big parties this year and had a sleep over instead!! October was crazy busy. As it is every year with an anniversary, two birthdays, Boo Bash, cheer, and Halloween. And this year we added a wedding to the mix.

Each girl had a friend over. We went to Playtime Pizza on friday night and had cake when we got back.

Abi had a game Saturday morning. Not much sleep was had that weekend. We dropped one friend off and the other went to the game with us. Abi cheered, the Miners won, and it was off to Newhope for a wedding!

I think the girls had a great birthday. We enjoyed their sweet friends and plan to do it all again sometime!

I am so blessed.
There are so many amazing people in the world. God has really opened my eyes tonight to the people that make up my life.
It feels sometimes like there is sadness all
around. But then, if you take a step back, you can see the moments of awe that come from it.

Alex and I were led to our home away from home in order to find our own little family.
Thank you, God.
Thank you, God, for giving me this man that loves and gives like I do.
Thank you, God, for your children in this world that gave us a chance to love them.
Thank you, God, for the man that reminded me of this today.

I love my unconventional (being out of the ordinary) family.
