Fun Fall Weekend

Our weekend was packed with fun activities.  We are now enjoying a quieter week and putting the brakes on as we are on the home stretch. I want to go into this next big job feeling as rested as possible. :) My cousin, Angie gave me good advice right before Olivia was born. She told me to stop and look around the house before leaving for the hospital and to enjoy the last time it would just be the two of us.  Life would never be the same.

Our lives are about to change again, so we are taking the time to relish our family as it is today.  We've been snuggling even more than usual, rocking, singing, reading, having one-on-one time, and more. 

But, back to our weekend...
On Saturday we had Peyton's 2nd Birthday Party.
We had a Red Case Tractor Party in honor of the little man. 
 What's a tractor party without a tractor ride?

The birthday boy has been having an absolute ball  this week with all his new boy toys!
I am so happy to have fresh cider.  We made 10 gallons Sunday evening- yum!


David also made summer sausage over the weekend with venison.  It is so tasty!

To conclude the fun weekend, my sister had a lunch on Monday with family to celebrate Julia's life (click on the link to see more of the beautiful decor).  I am so blessed to have the sister that I have!  Thank you, Leah and to all my precious family for an incredible afternoon!  Julia and I felt very loved!

I hope to be holding my bump on the outside of me very soon!:)  I'll take any advice, reminders you might have for me.  Have a blessed week!
