Hello there! I have just a few minutes to steal away so I thought I would say howdy. So much life gets packed in to each day, it’s so hard to cover it all in just a quick update. Top of mind at the moment though is my weepy-heart realization that last year today was my due date with Gussy! I can so easily drift back to that day as if it were yesterday. Expectant, excited, weary and wanting so much to meet our beautiful boy. I ended up having to wait two more days for his debut, but of course at the time it felt like 2 weeks (I’m sure you remember)!
It’s nice that Gus’s birthday is on a Saturday, and it happens to be Trick or Treating in our neighborhood, a built-in in party. Gus is going to be a puppy dog, just like his big brother Garrett was. I love hand-me-down family costumes! Twice the cuteness. Karolina is going to be Cinderella…our first Princess costume! We have wings and a halo and she was going to be our little angel, but once I saw the pretty princess dress (40% off) I just couldn’t resist. I’m trying to figure out if/how I can curl her hair? My mom used to use pink sponge rollers on my hair as a little girl so I’m hoping to find some and give it a try.
Finally, I have to throw in a quick plug for the new Bebo Norman album “Light of Distant Cities.” Bebo is one of my favorite CCM artists and a gifted songwriter, and the album is spectacular.
My early favorite is “At the End of Me.” I usually have to listen to the album a few times to really warm up to it, but there’s always a few songs that instantly catch hold. That one was an instant repeat, and also “Collide.” A sentimental honorable mention is “Go With You.”
I had several pictures to post today, but my uploader has stalled and my time’s up…oh bother. God bless your week and enjoy these last few days of October!
