I'd planned on recapping vacation and Thanksgiving and all of those things, but I have a rare afternoon of three sleeping babies and a venti pumpkin spice latte and an end in sight to my editing (hallelujah, thank You, Jesus on ALL accounts), and I can't spend much of this precious fleeting time on blogging. SO- how about a few pictures?!
One morning before church I thought I'd snap a few shots of the kids all together. It certainly did not go as planned (read: christmas card worthy pictures) but they are sweet moments of my kids being my kids. Fun, energetic, full of life kiddos--- and I guess when I think about it, these really are the shots I'd loved framed, the moments I want to always remember. :)

We have lived in our house for five years now and I have always dreamed of a mantel above the fireplace. Two weeks ago, Jordan built me one, and I love it and it's perfect. :) We got a beautiful tree and had a blast decorating it. Our house feels so home-y and cozy with all of the Christmas decor and always-burning candles. I love everything about this time of year.
Lastly, my baby girl turned 23 months old. This is the last month that I count months and I cannot believe she is weeks away from two. Surreal. I am so enjoying seeing more of who she is... sweet, spunky, loving, funny little girl. She's tender and silly and so different than I expected and so different than her siblings. Such a gift!! (Oh, and crazy beautiful, too. Those big brown eyes...)
(this shot below breaks my heart a little bit. too too big.)
these two below are some of my favorites. so very Nora.
Me and my littlest girl. :)
Have a great day!
