Rob and I took the kids (the older 3) out of school for the day on friday and heading down to Plains, GA where we attended a field trial for the dogs. we rode on mule pulled carriages and each of the kids took their turn holding the reins to the mules. they had so much fun! it was cold, but very worth the family time. Nico ran his first field trial with Rocky.... unfortunately rocky ran off and the men on horses had to go track him. not so funny at the time, but we had a good laugh!

Jakob has come such a long way since he was born. today he turns 9 and i look back and reflect on all this little man has accomplished. he is such an example to me and a huge blessing to our family. he teaches us patience and love and at times he reminds us to be prayerful. he is a special little guy and i am so grateful the Lord has blessed our family with him. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAKOB ANDERSON BOOT!!!

i have been working on lots of projects in the house lately.... at the top of my list is my spices! Rob LOVES to cook, but can't stand looking for his ingredients, so........ i made it so he will never complain again... about the spices anyways!
this is something fun that i got from snapfish.... they are 20x30 collage pictures of our families fondest memories.... these just happen to be our family vacations in the past couple of years. the kids have so much fun looking at all the pictures on their way up the stairs.

With all the rain on saturday, we did not get a chance to do the BIG trick or treat, but our church had trunk or treating before the rain started, so it worked out and our kids got PLENTY of candy!

We decided to take advantage of the opportunity we had to go to Disney World for Brett and Sarah's wedding and make it our family trip for the year. we left a day early and spend a whole day at MGM studios where the kids had so much fun meeting their favorite characters from TV and riding some fun rides. it was so nice to spend some time with the kids with no distractions.

I know it is almost thanksgiving, but i have to back track a little and catch up on things that have happened.... Nico started 4th grade this year, Jakob is now in 3rd, Annelies is a big 1st grader and my sweet Sofia is joining the school kids for the first time this year as a Pre-k(er). everybody is so excited to start the first day! ESPECIALLY NICO!! haha
Jakob thinks school is the best!
Sofia doesn't know what to expect and Annelies is always happy!
Oliver is thrilled to have me ALL to himself!

we have not one, but TWO birthdays in the month of september.... Annelies and Oliver celebrate their big days only 2 days apart, so it makes for lots of CAKE! i didn't think i would ever say i would be sick of cake, but september just about kills me. i have learned to get creative and switch up the deserts a little and the kids don't seem to mind. HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANNELIES AND OLIVER.

with the kids back in school, Ollie and i have had lots of fun times out and about.... one of my good friends Brittany and her little man Zack invited us to the GA aquarium. we had so much fun looking at all the fish and even petting some of them. it is so fun to spend one on one time with my little ollie! he is getting so big.

The rain in GA has been merciless!! our backyard turned into a lake and practically got washed away. we are working to repair the damage, but have a lot to do. the kids thought it was pretty cool to have a "pool" in the backyard until they saw that many of their toys were GONE, their trampoline was wrapped around the trees, the fire pit was GONE and all of our yard furniture was buried under lots and lots of dirt. i have never seen anything like this as long as i have lived in GA- (28 years). it was amazing to see the damage A LOT of rain left behind. we still have many roads around us that are closed and plenty of repairs being made around us. it will be a long road to recovery.... and the rain is still falling!

As most of you know, Oliver's hair is a hot topic at our house. should we cut it? should we keep it long? he looks like a girl..... so, we finally decided to make his grandparents happy and cut the BOYS hair! Oliver was not in agreement with this of course and most people did not recognize him when they saw him. i have to say- it took us quite some time to get used to it and at times i miss his curls.
