anyway, despite our crazy day to day lives i have been truly enjoying my kids and love the stage that we are in. i may not be saying that tomorrow or even an hour from now when someone is complaining or fighting over who gets to brush their teeth first or what color cup they each get for snack time. but that is when i will remember how rylie was pretending to be a dinosaur and started chasing her big sisters around the house, the good night kisses and declarations of their undying love for the best mom ever (maybe i should record that for future use) and all of the smiles that come in the quietness of reading a book together. if i could only bottle that up and keep it forever, i definitely would- maybe i just have! i hope that you will hold on to the little blessings that come up in your day too. well back to the real world of car line and pick up time.
stay tuned for halloween photos. trust me they are 'incredible'!

If you know me at all you know that laundry is my nemesis. It sometimes erks me that we have an entire room for this chore that is not my friend. And what is the deal with the washing machine and dryer? They are a classic dynamic duo, however they are missing a partner in crime-the machine that folds and puts away the clothes! I have for too long been this partner and am not enjoying the job- I don't even have a fancy cape or anything, but if I did I would have to wash, dry and put it away! Will it ever end? No, probably not. All of this to say that Fall is here and he has shown his face in my laundry room. As seasons change so does our clothing. Socks, sweats and long pants have now entered this villainous cave of laundry land. Although these items only aid my nemesis in his evil plot to surround me with Tide they are not the enemy, but merely a reminder of all the fall fun to be had.
I am eager to bundle up against the brisk Fall air with hopes of watching a Friday night football game under the lights, jumping into a pile of leaves with my girls, taking a trip to the Pumpkin Patch or spending a Saturday afternoon in bed with a good book. So Fall I welcome you! Even if you bring little socks that will more than likely become lost in the dryer.

Well, I suppose that this whole blog thing is really meant to be about the girls, so I thought that I would highlight one at a time. Let's start with our youngest, Rylie Joy.
- All about Rylie Joy:
- Loves to climb on anything (including in the toilet, on the table or up the bunk bed ladder in record time)
Loves water, whether it be in a bath tub, swimming pool or toilet (is there a theme here?)
Loves to read books
Is a true artist and will color all day long on any surface with pen, crayon or marker
She's a lefty (Grandma's so proud!)
Loves shoes- all we hear is 'shoo shoo'
Can hold her own in a wrestling match with her sisters
Likes to eat cheese, but hates milk
Runs around with her hands flailing all over the place
Is a snuggler who gives lots of hugs and kisses
It is so fun to be able to stay at home with Rylie, she is awesome. Although she does not go to school we do go to MOPs (Mother's of PreSchoolers). This picture of her was taken on her first day of MOPs. She was so excited when I got out the camera and told her we were going to take her picture on the porch, just like the big girls did on their first days of school. She just kept saying "cheese, cheese, cheese" walking throughout the house on our way out front. She better get used to the photos because as many of you know I love to take them!

So in the end our weekend was a hit! Hopefully our next family outing will come sooner than later. For now it is back to reality of the week to come. So I think that I will sit a little longer eating my chocolate chips and give the fairies another half an hour to show up.
