My Photo Album: October's End

My little sister brought her kids and Aunt Marieski for a quick visit this weekend while Zeb was out hunting. As it turns out Spence and my little family was in charge of cleaning the church building on Saturday morning. A bit of a weekend suprise for us folks that forgot to check the Sunday program. So we loaded up the gang, cousins and all, and found ourselves tidying the church. Brooke and Bryn made the rounds emptying trash cans and cleaning chalkboards, while Marie cleaned glass entry doors and Jace and Zayne played a game of monster vacuum vs. screaming hellion boys as Spencer + the vacuum villain cleaned the carpets. They weren’t one bit reverent, those boys.
There is something about little cousin bonds that makes me smile. A certain someone tends to be bossy. Sometimes the noise level … {shudder}, like fingernails down a chalkboard. Occasionally feelings get hurt. Or the big girls hide or tell secrets without including the little girls. Or exhaustion sets in and there is much wailing and gnashing of teeth. But the kids, they always work the kinks out. And it makes every single bit of the crazy worth it. Those sweet cousin bonds - I hope they last forever.
Mom sent Halloween gift bags for the kids, per usual. Pajamas, socks, an adorable panda hat for Marlee and a new dress that Brynlee was certain made her look as beautiful as the morning sun. Grandma’s grab bag gifts are a favorite around these parts.
It’s Monday. And I have a feeling that November is going to disappear just as quickly as October did. And then it will be December. And Christmas. And then the New Year will bring new life. Baby Maycie. We pray for her and her sweet parents on a daily basis. Kate has posted a medical update for those of you that have asked me for the most recent Maycie info.
Anyway, I’m wrapping up October with photos.
