Catching Up on Family Time

Just some pics of us hanging around being a family. :)

They started construction on a house behind ours. Brian took them to check out the big hole.

He's been waiting to get these from his parent's house since before we got married and now he's finally able to hang them up. Am I married to a Pennsylvania boy or what? :)

Can't tell you how excited I was to find this scene one day...
Attempts at family shots of all of us...
I said, attempts... :)

She's going to be the "Headless Natalie" for Halloween. :)
Getting silly....
Even sillier!
We finished hanging up curtains and pictures upstairs as well as rearranging the kid's bedrooms this weekend. I'll have to post some completed pics later.
Getting ready for the Penn State/Ohio State game on Saturday: Go PENN STATE! Blake brought the chips! :)
And now, some quotes from Natalie that I've been writing down lately:
" Can I have some more ice cream corns?" (candy corn)

"Baby cats are called mittens."

Natalie: "I don't want to take a nap."
Me: "But your body needs rest."
Natalie: "Okay, my body can sleep but I'll stay awake."

"I'm not 'honey' I'm Natalie. Daddy's 'honey' "

"Blake has cute hair, Mom."

"This store is so beautiful!" (It was Walmart.)

Natalie:"Mommy, I have a stone in my tummy!"
Me: "What? Show me." She points to her ribs.

"What are you guys doing? (she and Blake sitting in his closet)
"Oh, we're just looking at our website."

From our roadtrip to Taylor-she was getting restless and we told her to look and see Jesus through the sunroof at night.
She was mad and said, "But I don't see Him, only stars!"
The next night when we walked out of store and it was starting to get dark: "Mom, are you ready to see Jesus?!"

You guys seriously have some time on your hands. David says ya'll (yes we've been in TN for 6 years now) are out of control. The pics of Blake remind me so much of Elijah as a toddler....Elijah is growing up quickly and is slimming down far too fast!!

Cute kids, great family (cute mom & dad, too!) We were in Boalsburg on Sun., but it was church time and knew you weren't home-but would have loved to have visited! Hope to see you when Chris & Chelle are up in Nov. Like to have ALL of you over (Bill, Linda & Bethany, too) Hope we can work it out.
