Here's Benjamin helping in his own way by playing with the tape measure. Such a fun toy!
I came home from work Monday and found my husband hanging picture frames. I couldn't believe it. We hadn't done it before because he didn't want to do it because it was such a time consuming task. Jared told me "I got bored with my homework." I loved it. It felt so great to finally have the frames hung.
The park we went to was awesome! It had so many toys to play on even for big kids like us adults! There was a massive slide and we brought wax paper. Need I say more. There was a really cool swing that I sat in that Grandma pushed Benjamin and I in for awhile. Benjamin loves to swing. It was a blast! And it was a beautiful fall day!
On Sunday I got a few pictures of the boys being boys. It's a built in gene with boys to love to climb and jump things.

things about being a mom is the hugs. I love it when Benjamin crawls into my
lap and wraps his tiny arms as far around me as he can and nestles his head
between my head and shoulder. I love to cherish those moments together. I try
to never rush the hug and just let him hold me and I him until he is ready to
let go. I am thankful for hugs especially from my little Benjamin.

Fall can be dismal and hard to get through some days. But with days like today I am grateful it is fall. The sun is shining, the leaves are blowing in the breeze and there is patches of blue sky. I am thankful for fall and the beauty that can be found therein.

It's that time of year where the holiday season is upon us! I am so excited. I recently watched "Miracle on 34th Street" and felt it was a great kick off to my holiday season. I don't ever think it's too early to start up feelings of gratitude and thoughts of our Savior's birth. I feel like there is magic in the air at this time of year as the world comes together and thinks more about the miracle of Jesus' birth and what He has done for each of us.
I am thankful for this time of year to reflect on the past year and all that I have been blessed with.
