Trek & Treat

Today my sister and I had "Sister" bonding time all day! We started out the morning eating at Cracker Barrel... yummy!! We then headed over to The Streets to visit with my mom. She had a booth set up for children to come and get apple cider and paint a pumpkin. This is her second year participating in the Hank Thompson Trek & Treat and she loves it! A few of my girlfriends came out, we took a break from the sun and went to Barnes and Noble to look through some magazines... one of my favorite pass times. After Madeline and I left there we ran around a few stores then met up with my parents for dinner. Madeline had a birthday to go to so our night ended at dinner, we had a fabulous day together! Its been on my heart lately how important family is and I want to soak up as much time as I can with them because time goes by WAY to fast! Maddie turns 13 this month and we all remember how the teenage years were. I hope that I can be a big enough example to my baby sister so that she will not fall into the same silly things I did as a teen!

Time for a update!

Fall is here and it is blessing us with BEAUTIFUL weather! I absolutely love this time of the year, now that I am married it makes it even more fun and exciting! Kyle and I have enjoyed many activities over the past few months that I haven't blogged, but ,finally, today I will share a few from these past few weeks!

We had our first bonfire of the season at my friend Kelly's house. We roasted dogs, made smores and I enjoyed a warm mug of Apple Cider! We enjoyed the cool evening talking and being outdoors!

On October 7th we participated in the yearly Light the Night walk for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. We started this tradition 3 years ago for my cousin that was diagnosed with Leukemia, now that he has gone to be with the Lord we still participate in memory of him. Dustan is not the only person that has been affected from this terrible disease ,but MANY others have as well. Raising money each year helps the society be able to reach out to more and more families in need.
