My little loves

The girls are changing so very quickly and I wish I had a way to capture each funny or cute thing they said or did but I don't. I try to make mental notes of Gracie's silly expressions and her little voice saying "Meeeee" while she points to what she wants. Or Finnegan's elaborate conversations, sometimes with Gabe or I, a baby doll, or just playing pretend on her own. I am so very proud of her sweet spirit. 

Gabe's mom had us get portraits of the girls the other day and although we have cheesy smile girl and NO smile girl in our midst I think they captured a few cute ones. Thanks so much Sue!

This one is perfect because Finn thinks something is SO funny and Grace with her usual "not impressed look".

We love the fall!

Life is so crazy these days. We have so much change in the air and it's just as we get used to/wrap our heads around one thing that it all changes. Right now Gabe works 4 nights and then is off 3 nights. I can't imagine how his body is handling all the days/nights, quick switches, and lack of sleep but he never complains.  On his days off family time is in the afternoon/early evening. Gabe and I really have no down time just the two of us so we will have to be very intentional on alone time and date nights. 

My camera was in the shop so we didn't take many pictures over the last few weeks, plus we got these fancy things called i-phones, have you heard of them? I fought the update for a while and honestly, still miss my flip that I had to tape together because I dropped it so often. So now I have the camera on the phone and well, still haven't learned how to upload them here. It takes me a while years sometimes.

Here we are carving our pumpkin. Loved all the faces that the girls made- mostly of disgust.

The other afternoon we walked around Davidsons campus and it was gorgeous out. I am no photographer (I wish I was but honestly even if I did know all about my camera these two NEVER look at the camera at the same time!) but we snapped a bunch of pictures of the girls running around

Gabe was looking SO serious in all of these pics so you can see his reaction when I yelled SMILE below

G Rob having the time of his life

This would have been really cute if my huge head of hair didn't block Finnegan out.
