Happy 11 months to my sweet little twinsies :) The time is passing so quickly! I truly cannot believe that in just a few weeks they will reach the 1 year milestone! I am already missing all the little baby things, but am enjoying all the new and exciting things they are doing and getting into these days! Christmas is going to be a blast this year! I cannot wait!

Everyone is getting pretty excited in this household...after all this will be the first Christmas for half of our family! :) We are trying to enjoy the beautiful decor, take part in the joyous festivities, and remember the true meaning of the season! It's already going by so fast! I hope you are able to do the same with your loved ones!

“And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow,
stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons.
It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags.
And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore.
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before.
What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store.
What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.”

Happy 10 months to the most handsome, loving, snuggly, sweet, laid back, full of smiles, easy going little boy in the world, Levi Brannon! I love you!
Happy 10 months to the most beautiful, fun, energetic, full of life, busy, daring, always happy little girl in the world, Lila Kate! I love you!
I can't believe my sweet babies are 10 months and are about to experience their first Thanksgiving and Christmas! I love them more each day and can't imagine my life without them!

I have to admit that I am totally addicted to Pinterest!! I love to glance over the thousands of grand ideas and hope to think I can complete all my favorites (in all my free time...HA!). My mind is racing with tons of things to complete, especially with the holidays approaching! I have tried several delicious recipes and a couple of cute crafty things for the babies, but I was really hoping to complete a beautiful fall wreath for our front door. I had aspirations that it would add some charm to our house and would hopefully distract from the lovely plant bed disaster in front of our house (kudos to Bree, our forever digging lab). Well, with lots of help from my mom, and these inspirations from Pinterest (Wreath 1 and Wreath 2), we completed the wreath and I absolutely LOVE it! It adds a nice "pop" to our door! I have more plans in store for our front stoop area (like paint the door black, get a new handle/lock, add urns and plants on either side of the door, etc), but that will come when I find some more time! For now, enjoy our new fall decor!

This Friday our family (Chris, my Mom, Levi, Lila Kate, and I) ventured out to Burt's Pumpkin Farm for a day of fall fun. The weather was perfect! The company great! The memories made were priceless! The babies loved looking at all the new things around them!
I LOVE the holidays and couldn't wait to begin the many family traditions that surround them with my little pumpkins!
We got our "perfect" pumpkin to carve and bake its seeds.
The twins were enamored with everything around them, but they still managed to see what the other thought about their experience.
After we enjoyed our time at Burt's we headed over to Amicalola Falls State Park to enjoy the sunshine and have a picnic lunch.
Levi and Lila Kate loved enjoying the sunshine and their bananas and carrots!
Levi found a leaf to play with...he is so enthralled with all different textures!
Lila wanted to enjoy her time in Mommy's lap.
Of course they both love playing with their Gigi!
And Miss Daddy's Girl had to get up and move around before we were quite finished.
It was such fantastic weather we decided to head over to the playground and let the babies swing for the first time!
Levi definitely enjoyed it, but was reserved with his emotions! :)
No words are needed to explain how Lila felt about her first swinging experience!
The day was a blast and I'm so thankful for two sweet babies to share in the first of many holiday traditions!
Today we used our goodies from Burt's to enjoy carving our pumpkin, roasting our seeds (pumpkin pie pumpkin seeds are delicious!), and savoring our pumpkin bread!
I hope you are enjoying this season of beautiful weather, with your family, creating many wonderful memories!

My absolute favorite thing to do these days is to sit outside and play with Levi and Lila Kate. They love soaking in the outdoor world around them...listening and seeing all the new sights and sounds. And I love watching their faces as they discover new things! These are some of the best memories (so far) and I know there will be many more to come! I hope you are enjoying your family and the beautiful weather outdoors!
