We have had so much fun celebrating this sweet boy’s 6th birthday the last few days! 🎂🎈🎁 I can’t believe my Cole man turned 6 years old yesterday, it seems like we were just bringing you home after a snow storm and were worried about what we were supposed to do next! We still have NO idea what we’re doing, and I still tend to worry a lot, but you have gotten so much bigger and it has been an absolute delight to watch you grow. Cole, you have the sweetest, most tender heart and know what someone is feeling before they know it themselves. You are empathetic, kind, and love to make gifts for others. Bead projects, mazes, puzzles, hunting, remote control cars, Captain America, the Hulk, and chapter books are some of your favorite things. You love playing and helping your sisters and you’re the best big brother ever! We love you so much sweet boy and can’t wait to see what your future holds! Happy 6th birthday buddy! 💙

We picked out our Christmas tree at Katalari Farms last week. Picking out a real Christmas tree is one of my favorite traditions! 🎄Cole and Lainey had a blast decorating our tree, and did almost all of it, while Karey happily watched them. When it came time to take a picture by the tree, Karey was NOT a fan 😂
We had Zeb’s work Christmas party Saturday night and were extra festive this year (thank you Target dollar spot!)🎄🎁 We had the pleasure of watching Cole and Lainey in their Church Christmas program yesterday. They both did a great job and we are so proud of them! Their teachers are all amazing and did a fabulous job with the program! 💜
We definitely had a fun filled week and weekend. Now on to the next activities! This time of year is SO fun, especially being able to see it all through your children’s eyes 💕

What are your favorite Advent and Christmas traditions? For yourself and for your family?
We don’t do Elf on the Shelf. Instead we do Star from Afar @starkidscompany Each morning I hide the Star, the kids find it and move the Three Wisemen to it, then we read the corresponding bible verse for that day. On Christmas morning the Star will be above the manger and the Three Wisemen will find baby Jesus ☺️ The kids love it and I love watching them learn and the excitement they have 💜
Do you open a book a day? Have an advent calendar? What are the activities you choose to make time for this time of year?🎄

Friends and Family,
I’m gonna be quite vulnerable and honest with all of you right now... I’m scared as heck to do this, but here goes! 🤗

I’ve been sharing essential oils and natural wellness for about 3 years now. Anyone who knows me knows that one of my greatest passions in life is to help others. I have been SO blessed to help so many families start their natural wellness journeys over these past few years. I love teaching, educating, and empowering people to take control of their health and wellness and showing them that there is a different way. You don’t have to go to the doctor’s office all the time. Wellness is SO much cheaper than illness. Trust me on this one my friends, I see this first hand! 👩🏼‍⚕️ 🌱>🤒 Anyways, I digress... I started building a business a little over 2 years ago with the goal of getting my essential oils and natural products paid for every month. Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined I would be where I am right now. I am on the edge of hitting a new rank with my little oils business, the life changing rank of Silver. 😳

I am hustling HARD. I am running. I am giving it my all to attain this goal!!! It is so close I can taste it!! 🏃🏼‍♀️💪🏼 I am putting this out there because telling people your goals makes you accountable. It’s scary to do, knowing I might not make it, but I know all of this will be worth it come Friday, hopefully sooner 😉

Ok, now I’m asking for your help. Our team is amazing and is totally a Silver team!! Will you please send a few prayers to the big guy upstairs for all of us? Also, sending lots of good vibes our way never hurts! If you are local to me I’m hosting a fun holiday class Thursday night at 7:30 at my house. We’ll be making some fun stocking stuffers. I’d love to have you join me and give you a big squeeze! 🤗

Thank you for reading this, for believing in me, for supporting me, and most of all for being in my life. I love each and every one of you and are SO thankful you are in my life 💜

Let’s do this 💪🏼

We have enjoyed celebrating Thanksgiving, visiting Santa (twice), and decorating our house for Christmas over the past few days. Thanksgiving was wonderful, the food was superb, and it was fun getting to catch up with so many of my cousins ☺️ Winterfest was a lot of fun. Breakfast with Santa was a hit and the hot cocoa bar at The Golden Husk was SO yummy 😋 Cole wants a remote control car from Santa and Lainey wants a stuffed tiger and a stuffed kitten. We’re not sure what Karey wants, but we all know that she is NOT a fan of Santa 😂 Zeb hung the lights outside yesterday before the snow came and the kids and I decorated the inside of our house for Christmas today! Karey even got to help with the kids’ felt Christmas tree 😍 Now all that’s left is picking out our Christmas tree and decorating it next weekend! I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and have a joyous holiday season 💜

Anyone else obsessed with personality tests? 🙋🏼‍♀️ I recently learned about the Enneagram and have enjoyed figuring out my type and learning more about why my brain works the way it does. I love to totally geek out over personality stuff. 🤓
I’m an Enneagram Type 2 and this graphic totally describes me 😂 Which number best describes you?!? Do you know your Enneagram type? If so, comment below and let me know! 👇🏼 If not, click on the link in the comments and take a quick quiz to figure out your type and then let me know! I love finding out other people’s types, it is SO fascinating to me! Ok enough with my nerdy personality tests... I hope each and every one of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoy the time with your loved ones 💜

#onedayhh // evening
6:20 pm- Eating dinner. Zeb made it home from hunting so we can all eat together. We say our prayers and everyone gets a chance at saying what their favorite part of their day was. This is one of my favorite times of the day. So many good and sweet conversations take place around this table 💜
.

7:15 pm- We are supposed to be calming down for the evening and getting ready for bed, but these three crazies are wrestling instead. Cole is trying to take down Zeb and Lainey is bringing in “super pills” (aka Nerds from her Halloween candy stash) for Cole to help him win. Karey watches the craziness from her high chair and I watch from the couch. .

7:55 pm- These were the book choices tonight. Cole is loving the Boxcar Children series and we just finished book 3 tonight. We also read the new book Cole picked out at the book fair. Lainey picked two stories out of her new Shimmer and Shine “chapter book” she got at the book fair today. After reading the two big kids head to their room, chat a little about their days again, and pray. Then it’s lights out for them. .

8:35 pm- Time for sweet Karey baby to go to bed. I’ve been soaking up her snuggles as much as I can and often find myself drifting off to sleep for a bit in the chair with her in the evenings. She’s such a cuddle bug and I love to cuddle 💜
.

9:15 pm- Kitchen is cleaned, clothes are laid out for tomorrow, backpacks and bags are ready, coffee maker is set... now it’s time for me to relax a bit with my feet up on the couch and finish this book. I’ve been making my way through the Inspector Gamache series and I am LOVING them!! Once I’m done I will wash my face and head to bed. It’s been a fun day. Thanks @laura.tremaine for hosting this. #OneDayHH helps me to remember that magic happens in the everyday and to focus on the small things. In the end it’s the small things I will remember and cherish the most 💜

#onedayhh // afternoon // I totally fell behind in posting today, but I continued to take pictures bc I knew things would eventually slow down.
1:30 pm: Grocery shopping at our favorite grocery store, “the apple one” One of Lainey’s favorite things to do right now is grocery shopping. She usually has her own cart, but today she wanted to ride on the end of mine. Karey loves to dance along to the music playing in the store 😍

2:30 pm: Some afternoons Lainey takes a nap, but most of the time she doesn’t. This afternoon she stayed up with me and she watched StoryBots while I read. Karey usually sleeps from 1:00-3:00, but she fought her nap today and was up with us too. She played on the floor, looked at books, and cruised along the fireplace.
3:10 pm: Getting ready to pick Cole up from school. I made myself a pick me up drink. It’s SO good and gets me through the afternoon slump! I’ve been adding a few drops of Lime Vitality to it because lime helps your body absorb vitamin C and I can use all the vitamin C I can get this time of year! 🙌🏼 4:00 pm: Snack and school binder review time. We got home a little later today because we went to the book fair at Cole’s school and bought some new books. Cole went through his sight word flash cards while all of us ate our snack.
5:00 pm: Cooking dinner. Tonight is chicken noodle soup and it’s always a crowd pleaser. Zeb usually cooks dinner (he’s a WAY better cook than I am), but he’s out bow hunting tonight so it’s my turn. Karey hung onto my ankles most of the time and managed to pull out our Tupperware containers and other random things out of the pantry. Good thing she’s cute! 😂 While dinner is finishing up I packed Cole’s lunch for tomorrow: pb&j sandwich, carrots, grapes, cheese stick, pretzels, popcorn and a juice box. One of my favorite things to do is leave a note for Cole in his lunch box 💜

#onedayhh // 12:30 pm: Lunch. Leftover brisket and cowboy beans from Lainey’s birthday party for me and a chicken salad sandwich, hummus and wheat thins for Zeb. Pb&j, grapes and carrots for Lainey and leftover spaghetti and grapes for Karey. I usually pack Cole’s lunch (pb&j, grapes, carrots, popcorn and juice box) but today is turkey dinner at school so he’s eating hot lunch today. Lainey sits and eats at the breakfast bar while Zeb and I stand around the counter and chat while eating our lunches. Karey hangs out in her high chair and likes to throw her sippy cup on the floor 🤷🏼‍♀️

#onedayhh // 11:30 am: We had MOPS this morning. It was a make and take meeting and we made cream cheese pumpkin pie truffles. They’re delicious! 😋 We also wrote one thing we’re thankful for about every mama in the group. My love language is words of affirmation so this was just the kind of activity my soul needed today! 💜

MOPS has been such a bright spot in my life and brings me so much joy. I absolutely love the women I get to chat with every other week and have enjoyed getting to know them better. ☺️
