November in Alabama

This could be one for the record books.

I have fond memories of making SNOWMEN in November when I was a little girl.

My little girls will have fond memories of SWIMMING in November {on the 7th to be exact}.

The leaves were changing & falling while they prepped their “boat” for the water. They said it wasn’t cold.

They were lying.

I was busy praying they didn’t need to be rescued because I WAS NOT going in after them.
Pre-swim baby brother did need to be rescued from his horrible and terrible holding cell crib.

The girls accompanied him in his cell while I attempted to clean his room.
He will grow into a man who will probably wear pink.

We’ve started to “secure his manhood” early with pink pacis, pink blankets, and he’s even been spotted sporting BOWS {pink of course}!
And it won’t be long before he’s ripping Snow White from the hands of Raiger!

Then I’m sure his daddy will rush off for a train set & bulldozer!
Happy November!

    the girls swimming in november is sooo cute. what great memories for them. don’t worry about the boy in pink. sweet diego wore his big sisters pjs (mostly pink) and used her blankets etc… (again mostly pink) until he was around 8 months old… I just couldn’t bring myself to by all the same stuff in blue so soon, they only have one year difference. Now at nearly three he is the most masculine of boys, seems like the pink had little to no effect on his inner man:-)

    I am glad to see that other moms let more than one child in the baby bed at a time! They are all so sweet!

    I am dying to see JM’s room…or have I missed the big reveal?

    I love the comment “he will grow into a man that will probably wear pink”…I laughed out loud. It’s funny to think that sisters can make a little man a little metrosexual.

    Thanks for the shirt. I never missed the 15,000 from the checking account ! Just a token gift for your kids to go to college for a few months….Love the new header. I love, love, love, the bed..Mine is shaped like that but done in a green silk..I love, love, love, it also……Your children are growing so much and are so precious.

    So cute!! I have had to catch up on your blog… we are moving to Myrtle Beach, SC to start a new church so my blogging life has been neglected. My husband wears pink and he is a very manly man so don’t worry! 🙂 Your children are precious!

    I just have to say that I LOVE that you were cleaning JM’s room…I mean, how is it that the new baby’s rooms always get dirty when surely they are not the ones doing the messing up!

    so fun! my 3 end up in Henderson’s bed most of the time, though Wilson is not too gentle and sometimes kicks him in the face on the way over the side. just working on toughing him up. It’s so sweet to see them bonding.

    ok, just had to let you know I just completed my first ever attempt at apple butter thanks to you! I am certain it can’t be as tasty as yours, truth be told it’s a little bit grainy… but good. thank you!
