Norah's 8th birthday- Schut side.

What fun to have family in town for the weekend! My brother wasn't able to make it because they are having a new baby very soon, but my parents, sister, and sister/BIL/niece were able to come and it was so fun! Family weekends together are one of my favorite things. As people get older and more kids are added to the mix, I know it's not always easy to make getting together happen, so I love putting in the effort to make it work. 

We went to Fields of Fun, our local pumpkin patch, and loved picking pumpkins and seeing the animals. Yay for fall!

We love Aunt Kayla and cousin Averie!

The girls are so sweet to Averie and it's fun to watch them be the oldest cousins. We have two more coming in October and December (my brother's 3rd and my sister's 2nd), so exciting new additions are coming soon!

Best group shot I got. Can't win them all, but the outing was a success so that's great!

Very thankful for family who is eager to love on our girls!

My sister Kayla's birthday is in September, and Kley and Norah's birthdays are in October, so we had a birthday celebration. Norah was excited to open a few presents early and have cake! She picked a butterfly theme this year and it was very cute!

The excited face when they see the cake is my favorite. What a joy to celebrate another year with our Norah!

It was also a special weekend because we got to have "Sunday dinner" at my grandparents house in the neighboring town where they live. They have lived in this house for 38 years and are moving this month to an independent living apartment. It's a bittersweet transition! Sad to see them leave the only house I've ever known them in with so many memories, but also a good move for them for the future. Thankful for one last lunch there and for one more round of pictures on their couch! It's been so sweet to live close to them!

We've taken many a picture in this spot over the years, what a blessing!
