Pumpkins, Races and Sweet Faces

Last weekend Henry and I headed for some fun in the Fort with friends and Marmie. Luke and Henry had fun playing in the pumpkins and Melissa and I had fun watching them. They are a handsome handful.

When did this child get big enough to wear boots and a belt?! He is growing up so fast and I love it and mourn it at the same time! He is hilarious and truly my child though. His poor daddy deserves a medal for putting up with us!

We always have fun in the fall doing harvest related activities.  I count it all joy to make special memories like these with Henry. I hope his love for all things "holidays" will mimic mine. I am trying my hardest to make it take! ha.

Spending a few days with the beautiful creation and her baby boy was medicine for my soul. Seeing her twice in 6 weeks could create a habit...a good one. This is my soulmate and forever best girl for life. I seriously could not imagine 1 day without her being a text, call or FB msg away. She gets me and where I am in life. I can txt her 1 word or just one line and she knows where I am at emotionally, spiritually, physically. Never have to explain, wonder or question this one. She is one of the best gifts God saw fit to give me as a little girl. I will praise him forever for it too.

Because we are a pair, we did the Color Vibe 5k together. She asked me back in August to come home and do it with her. We had great fun. It was colder than all get out but it was fun to get colored up and walk through the shadiest areas of our hometown together.

Our buddy Trish also joined us with a few of her friends. We had so much fun being goofy and taking these pre race pics at packet pick up the night before. I love a silver friend so much. I appreciate the gold ones greatly, yet the silver ones are just medicine for the soul.

Mama and Henry waved us in at the finish. Henry loved all the colors.

One of the highlights of my trip was seeing this blast from the past. Erica and I grew up in the same neighborhood, church and school. She was two grades behind me but it never mattered. We were partners in lots of crime. We met up with our kids and my Mama at the nursery/pumpkin patch close to our old stomping grounds. It was so much fun to see we are just the same, just older!

The best part of the visit was loving on this sweet Mama! Henry had so much fun playing and loving on his Marmie. She told him stories and he rubbed the jewels on her blouse. It was a fun-filled weekend with lots of my favorite people.
