Busy! Busy! But Fun!!!

So much has happened the last few weeks. We spent Thanksgiving with Bronson's family in Warsaw, IN. Sara Grace and Lawson had a blast with all their 2nd cousins. There were 39 of us at dinner. Sara Grace and Lawson had the privilege of meeting one of 2 of their great grandparents.
This is Grandpa Scripture.

Poppie, Nana, and The Pasko Family

Double ear infections, teething all four 2 year old molars, but still laughing with Daddy!

Lots and Lots of fun cousins!


Bob, Heidi, and Maddy came to visit.
Bronson's best friend from highschool came to visit with his family. Bob was running a marathon in IN. We stayed in a hotel with a pool. The kids had so much fun swimming.
Sara Grace was an angel in the Christmas Pagent at church. She was so sweet. The little heavenly host sang, "Hark the Harold Angels Sing." I don't think that they could have picked a harder song for the 3 and 4 year olds, but it was cute. The images aren't clear because our flash wasn't on =)!!

We are in very cold and windy Indiana!

We are in Upland, IN. Only 1/2 mile from Taylor University. It has been a lot of fun living in a place where you can walk everywhere. We walk to the little food market, the pizza place, the gas station, the barber, and the post office. But our walking days are over due to the freezing cold weather! There are no stoplights here and only a bit over 1000 residents. It is fun to have the college kids walk, run, and bike by our house. Bronson's campus is in Marion (a little more than 20 min from here). Soon, I will take and upload pictures of Indiana Wes. It's an amazing campus. There is a movie theatre right under his office!
Quick facts: area surroundings: corn fields, corn fields, and more cornfields closest target: 40 min
grocery store: 15 min
walmart: 25-30 min
playgrond: right across the street!!!
the high today: 32* (but the wind chill makes it way colder!)
The famous Ivanhoes: 1 block!
Very fun front yard swing

Bristol, TN

This week I decided to take Lawson and Sara Grace to some memorable spots in Bristol. We didn't get to all the places because the week was so busy.
We started off at Grace Elizabeth's plot. I don't go there often but wanted to go with kids before moving. As I stood there I was reminded of how loved and supported Bronson and I have been over the years here in Bristol, and the joys He has brought into our lives since then.

"Little ones to Him belong. They are weak, but He is strong. Yes, Jesus Loves me."

Trip to Charlotte, NC

I took Sara Grace and Lawson to play with there cousins for the weekend. We had so much fun. The highlight was getting to meet SGP and Lawson's new cousin, Isabella. She is such a sweetie.


Isabella and Jane




Moremommy took us to the pumpkin patch. We had a great time and then went on a hayride.





We were so glad that we were able to take Annalisa back with us to Bristol for a few days. Here she and Sara Grace are having a tea party.

SGP's Horse Riding Lessons

Sara Grace has been taking horse back lessons with one of her sweet friends. This is something she really wanted to do before leaving Bristol, TN. Look at the way Lawson is standing. This is his new pose! The video at the end is Lawson making a horse sound. So funny!

We've been busy!

Our life has been a quite busy lately. With school starting back and the upcoming move, I haven't updated our blog in a bit. So here is my attempt to catch everyone up.

At the end of July, Sara Grace went to cousin's camp. During camp, she, Madeline and Annalisa attended dance camp at St. Giles. They had a fun time and were so cute.




Back in Bristol, we celebrated Nona's birthday!


Then Sara Grace had her first trip to the dentist. She was an excellent patient and had a great report.


Lawson and Sara Grace had a fun day riding horses at the Scott's farm.





Yes, this is Bronson and our friend Brian. Our youth group had a day of Red Neck games. These two boys wanted to dress up for the occasion- we're so proud.

Lawson continues to make us laugh!

Train Ride!

Sara Grace, Lawson and our friends Riley and Reed had so much fun!



Lawson is so proud of himself for going down the slide without help.

Sara Grace can't wait for her Daddy to see her attempt two new tricks!




Tea Party with Ms. Mildred!

We have the sweetest neighbor who loves our children. She planned a special tea party for them. (Lawson didn't break any of the china =) )

Moremommy and Moredaddy came to visit so we took them to Steele Creek (where Bronson and I got engaged) for a fun day.

We rode the train again.





We even did paddle boats. Lawson had a hard time understanding why he couldn't jump in the water.

And we even held a snake! (This picture makes me question if Sara Grace is really my child).
Life has been busy lately but quite fun. I hope you all are doing well. Thanks for taking the time to see our blog. I'll update everyone on our moving status soon.
