'round here...

We've just been trucking along...living life!

We have a sick little baby. He started feeling bad over the weekend...lots of snot and congestion! So I took him to the Dr. on Monday and sure enough, it had moved into his ears -- both were infected. I hate seeing him sick...it is heartbreaking. We fight a runny nose pretty much constantly (thank.you.very.much.daycare.) but this is his first ear infection.

After a couple of days of antibiotics he is doing much better!
Keith is out of town again...we miss him something fierce...we are managing! I love watching Saw discover new things. Moments like this are so precious to my heart!

Keith bought me some caramel corn from our neighborhood boyscout. He doesn't like it so I'll be forced to eat the whole bag. Darn.
We kept a fire all weekend. It was awesome. Before Keith left Monday morning, I started asking questions about starting one by myself. I'm pretty sure it made him nervous. It is supposed to get down to freezing tonight so I may just give it a whirl!
So much to be thankful for. I can't believe Thanksgiving is next week! I'm so looking forward to this holiday season...I know experiencing it with Sawyer will make it that much better. Well, pretty much everything is better because of him!

How awesome is this frame that now hangs in our den? Keith made it for me! He's the best, huh?! He took an old window that only had two glass panes in it. He added the pictures and then decided to use wire to spell out love in the spot that was missing the glass. Told you guys he's creative. My sister jokes that he needs to make two of everything...one for our family and one for hers.
A beautiful reminder of the promise of a new day.

I'm so glad that Sawyer's feeling better...husband out of town+sick baby=sad mommy! You are such a good Mommy and I love all the pictures you take and the creativity behind the camera. I wasn't kidding about making two of everything! ;)

Funner to use the leaves as design instead of raking them haha.
