Happy Halloween!

The fam is about to come over and I have a little bit of time to blog! We always celebrate with a pot of chili and have a good time watching all of the little Halloweeners. Collins is going to be a DePauw tiger and so Trent and I are going to wear DePauw gear! Halloween is one of my favorites....but when it's Thanksgiving, it's my favorite...and the same for I'm just a lover of holidays I guess. :) Collins' birthday will definitely hit the top of the list and today I realized his nine month bday is just around the corner! :) Hmmm...any ideas for his 9 mo. party?

So, I haven't blogged in over a week and there are SO many reasons. No excuses right? Haha But, honestly I told myself that when Trent is home and not traveling...I am going to spend every minute with him. So, the days have gotten away from me and he's back to traveling again this week. :( I miss him so much, but I know the Lord is answering every prayer of ours in His most incredible way. It's making us even stronger as a couple, this new job is helping to cover my 'missing' income, and he LOVES the challenge. When he's away it forces us to talk for a long time. We will talk (haha) when he's home, but it's different when you're on the phone with someone miles away. You really really ask's just different. I don't want to get used to him traveling, but I think it's going to be this way for awhile. If you pray, please lift up our little family in prayer...for safety, for patience, for comfort when he's gone, and for safe travels for Trenty. I'm so thankful that God has given him this opportunity to make a difference at Toyota! He's an incredible leader.

What have we been up to? Tons!! :) Enjoy the pics!

LoVe the hand on Trent's face!
