Trunk or Treat

Trunk or Treat

We had a great Halloween! We leaned into Remi’s love of Paw Patrol and went as the whole gang.

We got ready at home and had some extra time, so we played outside. Our Marshall was looking mighty cute!


We were Chase and Skye.  I made our vests from just standard fleece vests, but I bought the tags and hats on Etsy.


The wings also came from the lady who made the pup tags. Remi LOVES having wings to use for dress up.


Mimi was Rubble and Caitlyn got in the fun as Everest.


Gigi (as Rocky) was already at church helping to set up, but we were happy to find her!


It was realllly cold, so our church moved the Trunk or Treat inside the gym. Still SO fun to see all our friends and get candy!

Here’s the whole Paw Patrol Halloween crew!


Each booth had a big thing of candy. She really loved when she got to choose her own treats.


These are Gigi’s life group girls. They are so sweet to our Remi. They had a cute farm booth.


But the highlight was this stick horse to ride- it was Tyler’s from his childhood!


And our Chick-fil-a set up there giving our cows. She loved that, too.


Toy Story was by far the most popular costume. We saw LOTS of Buzz and Woody boys. But we loved hanging with our friends, who were Jessie, Woody, and Buzz.


We had so much fun together! I’m thankful for a community that comes together for things like this.


I always say I love our town the most on the 4th of July, Halloween and the Christmas parade. It just feels like small town perfection.

These are the Days

These are the Days

Just capturing some memories….

Remi LOVES books, and she’s quick to memorize them. She was reading me The Very Hungry Caterpillar one afternoon.


She was with my mom, and I stopped to work out after work. They met me there to make the pass back to momma, and Remi wanted to jump into my workout. She isn’t allowed on the mat, but we let her play on the side. I am proud to set an example for her! I hope she always wants to be strong like momma!


She was VERY PARTICULAR about her hair this day. Two little buns, one that I had to redo because it wasn’t little enough, and two sparkly bows that she picked out.


She takes dance at school, and I love the pictures and videos they send us. She doesn’t wear a leotard because Miss Independent won’t ask for potty help and has accidents trying to get them off herself…so she gets to wear these cute little tank tops. I sort of love it even more!


Not Remi-releated, but I bought and LOVE Overtone’s Rose Gold for Brown Hair coloring conditioner. It gives my hair this awesome pink hue.


Daddy has worked a ton of Friday nights at games, so we went and took him dinner to see him. Remi LOVES her daddy and she thinks his big school is really neat.


Our imaginative girl set up this sweet tea party with Buzz and her tiny baby doll. So cute.


I took my Wednesday night Bible study ladies to Tulsa to the Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art. We’ve been studying Old Testament Feasts and they have exhibits on them.

We stopped at Jane’s for brunch first and mom got cinnamon rolls the size of her head! Ha!


But it was a beautiful day with these ladies learning more about our God and how He weaves everything together.


And to close this random long post….three different fall outfits from the past.

2018 and 2019.


And two shirts that have lasted us 3 years! 2017, 2018, and 2019!


Made to Worship

Made to Worship

I recently sang a “special” at church. (For those not familiar, that’s a song in the service that isn’t by the choir…it’s a solo done during a special portion of the service, like during the offering).

I had been practicing my song in the car quite a bit (that’s the only time I have!) and when it was time to rehearse, Remi was adamant that she was coming on stage with me. Initially she said “I’ve got moves, mom!” so I wasn’t sure what she would do on the stage.

But then she wanted a microphone. And then she was mad that I didn’t turn it on. So I did.

And then, my baby girl worshipped with me.

It was so sweet and special and brought happy tears to my eyes. If she can learn anything from me, I hope it’s who God is and how to worship Him! (For when I look back at this some day, the extra flowers were from a visitation that had just occurred).


Daddy Daughter Date Night

Daddy Daughter Date Night

Our church hosted a Daddy Daughter Date Night. And these two were SO excited to go!

After work, I got Remi all ready. She picked out her blue bow (blue is her favorite color!) and she was so excited to leave. (side note: she didn’t realize I wasn’t going and was pretty upset for a few minutes yelling for momma when they were leaving)


The church took some of these sweet pictures.  They had dinner and then danced together.  Tyler said she got down!


They also had a fun photo booth.  We sing songs about baby shark (duh) and another one about a green frog- and Tyler said she HAD to have those things for their picture!


I’m thankful our church pours into families and that Remi has such a great daddy to make her feel special and loved.
