"make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you,
so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody."

october 2012

october marked one year in
our new house. almost a year
to the day, we got a renter
and a new chapter as landlords began.
in case you didn't know,
that warrants celebratory starbucks.  
prior to us renting our house out,
our church family and my dad came over and helped
repair everything that needed to be done
before the house was rented out.
this included paint, a new kitchen floor,
replacing siding and faucets, etc.
the kicker?
they paid for *all* of it.
we are so blessed.

my younger sister had her first baby,

the boys and i got to watch the costume parade
at the girls' school,
for some reason the picture i had of sydney disappeared.
you can see it on my instagram feed here , but it
won't let me transfer it over. =( 

 sydney's fall party was in the morning
and they don't allow siblings, so i couldn't
make it to hers, but i did make it to ali's fall party
in the afternoon.
i know it makes me look like an awesome mom
to not have syd's parade picture AND not make 
it to her fall party, but i *am* in her classroom
every week to volunteer. ;)

we didn't have plans to trick or treat that evening,
but the kids were really bummed and some of our family
was going to a halloween alternative at our old church
so at the last minute, they put on costumes they had from
home and we went.

the kids had a great time and it was nice to
see old friends as well as 
family we haven't seen in awhile. 
we were glad we went!
