Halloween Rocks!!!

We have had a blast celebrating Halloween this year. It has been not stop partying for the last week. Yesterday we hosted a party for all of Nate's fellow interns. It was great fun to dress up and meet everyone. As you can see we all looked amazing:) I don't know about you but I think we look pretty darn powerful:)
Nothing says sexy like a pair of blue tights.
We enjoyed lots of yummy food, played some dancing games on the KINECT, and enjoyed some friendly competition while playing some Minute to Win It games.

Today was Trick-or-Treating around our neighborhood. The weather was amazing. We have been so lucky this Fall to enjoy some beautiful weather.

Our cute little CareBear and Snow White ready to get some candy!

Hanging out in our front yard passing out candy. P.S. we have huge trees in our front yard. Nate cleaned the leaves up just yesterday.

The partying has been fun but we are pooped and ready for some sleep!

Rainy Days and Cookies...

It rained all day, and not just a little bit. Weather man even reported that we have reached a new rainfall record this year. Our lawn has never been so lush and green. I had no motivation to pack me and the girls out in the rain so we stayed home all day after hitting up the gym this morning. It was kind of nice. For entertainment the Cam Bam and I made cookies while Sadie was napping. Rainy days and cookies are the perfect combo don't you think?

This girl sure thought it was a great idea...

We were going to make Halloween sugar cookies but I was out of sour cream so we opted for the good old fashion chocolate chip cookie. I tried a new recipe that was supposed to be the best ever cookie in the world. They were good...not the best ever. I will be sticking with my old recipes although the dough for this cookie was delightful.

I think this picture says it all...

Oh how I wish I could enjoy such simple pleasures like this girl does.

I was scooping the dough out onto the cookie sheet while Cambri was devouring the dough.
With dough covering every inch of her face she said, "Mommy this is my favorite part!"

I then asked her if her belly was getting sick from eating too much cookie dough. Her sweet response, "No my belly is loving this!"

Love, LOVE, L-O-V-E this girl!

Goose Egg!

Our poor little Sadie got her first goose egg. She is pretty fearless so I figured it was bound to happen sooner or later. Since she is one tough cookie it wasn't too traumatic (had this happened to her older sis the story would have been much more dramatic:). Luckily it wasn't too deep of a split so we decided stitches weren't necessary. I am sure this won't be the last goose egg this girl gets.

Rencher family: Does she not look so much like Nate's baby pics in this photo?

Sadie First Birthday!

I can't believe how fast the last year has gone by. It has been fun to reminisce about the day Sadie was born. It makes me miss holding my sweet new baby. Yet at the same time I absolutely love my crazy cute one year old. She is as loveable as they come. Absolutely full of personality and very much my little social butterfly.

We had a few friends over tonight for cake and ice cream. It was fun and totally chaotic at the same time. But you only get to celebrate your first birthday once right?

Here is the lady bug and her sister ready to party!...

The pinata was the highlight of the night...

My cute family watching the other kids hit the pinata...

(fyi- the weather today was amazing. It did not feel like October. More like August but without the humidity. Perfect day to celebrate a birthday)

And the cake...

Thanks to my friend Cassie Hegorhorst the cake turned out super cute. I copied the cake she made for you little girl. Thanks Cassie!

We don't have many pictures with our whole family. Even if we aren't all looking and smiling I still love when we have the whole gang in a picture.

Sadie needed a little encouragement to dig in...

But obviously got the hang of it...

A little milk to wash it all down...

Happy Birthday to my sweet little Sadie Bug!!!

Temder Moments..

When dropping Cambri off for school last Tuesday she said to me out of the blue, "Mom, we are a forever family. You, me, Sadie and daddy."

Talk about melting my heart!

Oh how grateful I am for tender moments that make all the hard times worth it.

I am indeed one lucky momma.

Ready to head out the door. They were just too cute to not stop and take a picture. As always Cambri is packing a million toys to the car with her. I can't believe how big Sadie looks in this picture.

Sweet and Silly for sure. Cambri was very proud of this picture and laughed about it for a very long time.

Just wanted to note that Sadie has enough hair to put it in a little elastic and add a cute bow. This is big in our house. Pretty sure Cambri was almost 2 before there was any sort of hair to comb. I didn't do a lot of bows or head bands with Sadie so when I do try it is usually ripped out within a few minutes. Also notice the binky...this girl hated binkies until about a month ago. Now they are her best friend. I know I shouldn't have let her have one so late in the game, but I adore the magic of the binky. Sleeping has improved tremendously in our house ever since she took to the bink. And she doesn't put nearly as much junk in her mouth as she use to.

It is 12:12am and I am staring at the computer screen trying to think of more to say. Pretty sure I just need to go to bed.
