Fast Friday Update

It's been a while since I've given an update on us.  So I thought I'd do that today. Last weekend we took a drive up the canyon as a family to see all the fall leaves. We stopped a few times to take pictures or to walk around for a little bit. This was one of my favorite pictures we got even though my kids look a little homeless haha.

My girls are best friends and I hope they always will be.  They stay up for hours after we put them to bed giggling and playing. It's been a hard adjustment for M to have J at school all day long, but it helps that she's in preschool now too. 

We also took family pictures over the weekend at my family's cabin. Our family has been trying to get this done for a month and we had to keep switching because of weather and other things that came up! So we were so glad to finally do it but it was so cold and it even snowed, which I was not happy about. But we got some good pictures of our family and got some big group pictures.  We didn't have a whole lot of time for pictures of the kids or anything but I'll get to those soon.

We went to the park yesterday because the weather was amazing! V wouldn't leave this tunnel. But after I saw a snake slither between my feet, we had to go to a different park. It took me a while to get off of the playground and it took my sister saving me by making sure the snake wasn't around. But I was on edge the rest of the time. V was really mad about leaving the park. 

While V napped and the girls were at school, I helped my dad get ready for a youth party (he's in charge of the young men in our church group) he's having this weekend by husking corn for him.  I don't know if anyone else had this problem, but growing up I was always nervous to husk the corn because my brother told me worms got in there sometimes. He was a big teaser and made it sound much worse than it actually is if a worm gets in the corn. But now I always think of that when I husk corn.

Also while V napped, I got a quick run in on the treadmill while I listened to THIS podcast. I've never been really into podcasts, but I really like this one because it gives me great ideas on how to make myself better. He gives so many great tips on time management and stress management so I highly recommend listening to it. The run was short but just what I needed for the day. 

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! I'll see you back here on Monday.

What are your weekend plans?

Are you scared of any animals?
