Our Weekend

I wanted to give you all a quick update on Genelle's family. Because of the generosity of many of you, we were able to bless the family with two $200 visa gift cards. They were so incredibly blown away and blessed by it.There are so many details to this story that unfold every day. God is really showing me how and why He has intertwined our families. I will definitely share more some time. Thank you to those of you who donated and extended yourself to a family you have never met. You were and are God's hand and feet. I'm praying double blessings over each one of you.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

So I'm completely thrown off by yesterdays holiday and keep thinking that today is monday. Anyone else? We had a full weekend of family. I love that about this time of year. We have so many birthdays this mixed in with all of the other fun things to celebrate, so we get lots of fun family time.

My older sister doesn't live here in San Antonio and since the pleas and signed petitions for her to move back haven't worked yet, when she comes to visit it's always a treat. My sisters are my very best friends. They just get me. They get my humor and they know me best and they just get me. I am so thankful to have these two in my life as some of my "constants." I've been thinking a lot about the constants in my life. The people who have always been around and always will be and I've just been feeling really thankful for them. Get a handful of really good people around you, who you trust and who you know truly love you and you'll always be grounded.

We celebrated my nieces birthday at the neighborhood park and it was so hot, but so fun! Especially for the kids. It was a costume party so they all got to wear costumes. Since we don't really put much emphasis on dressing up for Halloween, I always appreciate another reason for them to get to dress up. And I can't tell but I think they kinda dig it too...




Sunday was an extra special day for us as pastors. We had our first baby dedication since planting our church and Brandon and I got to dedicate our nephew Charlie. He is the most precious and sweetest little boy. My brother and sister in law live only a street away and I've contemplated kidnapping him a time or two. We love him so much and it was such an honor and blessing to dedicate him back to the One who gifted us with him. Baby dedications always get me so choked up. They are so special don't you think? Having the privilege of dedicating my brothers son was something I will always cherish.
Let me honest about one of the reasons I love having girls: dressing them. It is so dang fun. And also I like to coordinate us sometimes. Maybe this is a little obnoxious but I just can't say that I care. And at the moment the girls don't either, so we're having fun with it. This day we were feelin the leopard. Please note that Mia's jeans were supposed to be "skinny jeans" but because she's just a scrawny little peanut, they fit more like boyfriend jeans. The girls got no booty.  Can't say I relate with her on this one.


Now let's talk about this weather real quick. Are you getting any Fall weather in your area? Cause here in Texas, we're being teased by a cool day here and there mixed in with hot and humid. This time of year I always wish we lived in a city with actual 4 seasons.
Tomorrow though, we are supposed to get a cold front with a high of 64! I can't tell you what this does to my heart. You better believe I got me a yummy cold weather crock pot recipe ready to try out in celebration!

I'll also be sharing peaks of our Fall decor soon. Do you decorate for fall at your house?

Hope your Tuesday is a good one friends.
xo.

    1. thats exactly the perfect time to stock up! Although Target has cute little decor that is pretty inexpensive too right now. I love their decorative white pumpkins and they cost anywhere from $2 to $6 depending on size! Add some fall leaves and candles around the house and your good to go without spending a ton :)
