Hello everyone! I hope that you had a great week and a spooky Halloween. 

Lets get this link party going! This weeks words are; reading, running, sending, liking, valuing

This week has been filled with reading children's books and text messages. In our house there is no such thing as reading one book. Emily carries some books all day asking me to read her one. If I don't want to spend hours reading children's books I have to  set a limit. What I've started with the kids is I ask them to read to me. They look at the pictures the tell me what's going on.  The things they come up with crack me up. text messages have been the main way that Dave and I have been able to communicate. We FaceTime every night with the kids. But the calls are short and a bad connection. Plus it is hard to have a conversation with Dave when 2 super excited kids want to talk to their dad. 

Well, I have started running again. Owen rides his scooter and the girls go for a ride in the BOB. It is a lot of fun to race Owen when on a run.  Now that the weather is getting cooler I am able to run. I have set a goal that by this next year, I want to run the Silver Strand half marathon. The kids also love running especially when candy is involved. They had loved running to the door saying treat-r-treat ( and thank you) then running down the driveway yelling "I got candy!! 

The kids have been making pictures and "mail" for their dad at school. So in a couple of days we will be sending him some goodies. They told me they want to send him art work for his walls. Got to love that.
For Halloween I was Rosie the riveter. After watching some "how to you tube videos" for hair and make up I gave it a try.  And I really liked how it turned out. It has inspired me to start to wear make up more. My sister teased me about how many selfies I took. I think the kids are liking it also. Owen has told me "your eyes are pretty mom" Emily always has some thing to say about my hair. Then she wants to do it. 

Valuing my family and friends right now more than ever.  With Dave gone and 3 kids under the age of 4. My life can be a little nuts. My family has been a big help. My wonderful friends calling or sending me texts to see if I need any thing. I am so lucky to have great people in our lives.I just love the fact that if I am having a day or a moment where everything is just to hard. All I have to do is make a call and get help. A kind word or someone would come over and let me have a time out. 

Thank you Ot & Et And Harvesting Kale for hosting this link party!
Check it out and tell us what you are up too. Join in the fun.
Have a great week.


  1. You costume looks great! Is the BOB a jogging stroller? My double stroller broke, and I'm so sad about it.

    1. Yes the BOB is a jogging stroller. I have a double and I love it!!!! It folds down great and fits in most trunks. I have not found one that ours can't fit in. It can't be a little pricey, but I feel it's worth the cost. We got ours at the REI used gear sale

  2. You were an awesome Rosie the Riveter! My kiddos are obsessed with books. We read anywhere from 4-10 books during the day, sometimes even more. And as soon as supper is over, they start asking how many books they can pick out for the evening. I adore their passion for reading, and they don't even know how to read, yet.
