Sweet September

We started September with a hurricane warning for went way east of us but it cooled things off for a day or so. We went to the park to celebrate the cool temps...this sweet thing loved the swing and Madeline loved pushing him. 

Our town has two parks and this one is right on the sound is so pretty! 

They crack me up...sometimes I think my heart might burst. I worried so much about Madeline adjusting after the adoption. I couldn't be prouder of her...she has the sweetest spirit about Ethan and absolutely adores him. 

Terry turned the big 3-5! They wrote Perry on his cake and we got a good laugh out of it! 

He's no ordinary guy...Madeline stuffed the toilet full of toilet paper and who knows what happened to our plunger. So he made this contraption...I freaked out - but it worked. He was so proud. 

We've finally found a church home. We've been going for several months and will start a home group next week. It's so different from our last church...4 services, casual, and contemporary. The funny thing is that's why we didn't try that church first and here we are at home there. I am so grateful for God leading us there. 

They don't match every Sunday but when they do, I have to take a picture! 

We've been watching lots of college football on Saturdays!

This past Saturday Alabama was struggling until my favorite cheerleader started cheering us on...the outfit is from 3 years ago and it's a little too short but gosh she is cute! 

Then she came out in's a 12 month! She's got Terry's genes for sure! 

Speaking of funny...what's not funny is how she gives me a fit at bedtime. But then I'll walk in her room to something like this and I can't help but adore her. 

We've been trying to get out at night around the neighborhood now that its bearable. Ethan yells the whole way and Madeline likes to look for rabbits and collect pine cones. I know it's so simple, but its one of my favorite things that we do together. 

And this guy...I have been so bad about doing monthly updates. But he is out of control. He is SO funny and the happiest baby I've ever known. He is eating mostly table food and still takes about 3 bottles a day. 

I feel justified that we get our money's worth out of Madeline's kids meals now when we go out. Ethan will always eat! 

He got his first real haircut in a salon. He was so good. He laughed and yelled and basically flirted the whole time we were there. He's figured out how to get attention and he uses it to his advantage. 

We don't go out to eat very often but Terry had a friend come in town and we went to Crabs...the beach is my happy place. It was nice to get out and the view is just so pretty. 

I can't believe September is almost over!
