Don't tell Joelle you saw this picture - but today she tried on a DRESS in the mall! I had to sneak this picture of her taking her own picture to send her BFF because I don't know when the next time will be that I will see her in a dress!

One of Malia's youth leaders asked her if she would help serve with her at our church Thanksgiving dinner tonight.

Malia had a city volleyball tournament today. There were 8 schools (we were the only small-town school), they played 6 games (12 matches) and won every single one of them!

There are so many amazing fall patterns that I want to sink my teeth into. So many that sometimes I even take my yarn & hooks & patterns to work so I can chip away at them on my lunch break.

I am loving the new photo accessories I bought for taking my Handiwork by Andi fall photos!

Happy Thanksgiving! After our family gathering, we spent some time taking some family pictures. I love the background of this one...and the people in the foreground of course!

This picture showed up on my TimeHop app today, and I have to say that it's my favorite family picture ever!

Yesterday at work I was craving Pepsi really badly, but all that was available was Coke cans, which I NEVER drink. Turns out other people know that this is a very rare thing, since this was the note left on my not-cleaned-up can this morning.

It was so exciting to watch Malia play her first volleyball games tonight! They won 3 out of their 4 sets against two different teams and Malia played really well. This is a picture of her very first play on the court! And it was a solid bump!

My sleepwalker was waiting for me tonight when I came up to bed.

My baby turned 12 today! Here is her happy, smiling face with an armful of yarn that she chose for the blanket she wants me to make for her.

Malia and a friend went to a local costume rental place tonight to find their Halloween costumes. This isn't the one they picked, but how cute are they?

I got a bag of second-hand books given to me today that I can't wait to get in to. The only problem is that I never have time to read! Especially now when the busy crochet season is upon me!

When Dad didnt like the song on the radio that the rest of the family wants to listen to, Malia helped be an extra hand to plug his other ear so he could still safely drive. :)

Here she a better shot of my just-turned-14 year old with her purple toned hair and nose piercing. I love how she is choosing safe and respectful ways to express herself.

My girl turned 14 today! (And yes, that is purple in her hair. And if you look closely, you can see her brand new nose piercing!)

Lately my alarm has been hit-and-miss with going on in the mornings. After 2 mornings of accidentally sleeping in due to this technological difficulty, I had a hard time sleeping past 5am today, constantly worried about what time it was and if my alarm would actually work today or not. In the end it did, but worrying about it sure caused me to lose a lot of sleep!

I had a pretty sweet little walking buddy tonight.

That time where you discover that all week you have been texting your brother's girlfriend Hilary instead of your good friend Hilary...oops!!

I'm not necessarily looking forward to the dreariness of the cloud and rain that's coming...but I sure don't mind the fall temperatures! I love sweater & scarf weather!

Tonight I used the Click and Collect service at Superstore for the first time, and y'all, it is a life changer!

This is what my camera rolls looks like after photographing a new crocheted project. And actually, this is after deleting the ones I didn't like!

Malia got her first official babysitting job today and it reminded me of Joelle's first experience. They were both so strangely was in the middle of the afternoon, for a couple of hours at the same next door neighbours! Malia was there slightly longer so she got a bit higher pay, but I thought it was neat how similar the two situations were!

When your teenager, who hasn't expressed any words of love to you in I don't know how long, sends you a ❤ in a almost brings you to tears!

This group of awesome kids were the original 5 kids in their age group at church camp. Now there are a lot of other youth from the community that have started coming and while it's so great to have them, there's something special about these 5.
