Just a quick little life update…

I haven’t been able to write as much as I’d like lately, with the exception of sharing a few quick recipes. It seems like time is just flying by, and I can’t believe how much Landon is growing and changing every day.

This boy loves food (hmmm… wonder where he gets that from). He’s still nursing like a little champ, but we’ve also added prunes, apples, bananas, squash, sweet potatoes, peas, and green beans to his diet.

I don’t know how, but I’ve been to the beach more this year than I have in the last 10 years combined. It’s funny how Jesus provides when He knows we just need extra rest. However, I think Landon is going to be more of a mountain man than a beach bum….

Also, my friend Meredith took some amazing pictures of him on the beach, and I can’t wait to share them! She’s the best! She’s also taking our Christmas card pictures next week, and I am so excited.

We celebrated my handsome husband’s 27th birthday last week! I am so thankful for Grayson and if you know him, you know he’s just one of those people that are so easy to celebrate. He’s full of life, he’s so much fun, and he loves with his whole heart.

Last week, Grayson’s football team made it all the way to the county championships! They didn’t win, which was disappointing, but they were proud to have made it as far as they did. Grayson used it as such a wonderful learning opportunity with his boys. He says that it’s great to win as a champion, but sometimes you have to learn to lose too, and still hold your head high. Gah… so proud of him and that big ol’ heart.

He had a little fan club there cheering him on, loving him, win or lose. We have the best friends and family!

Gray and Landon are so cute together. It’s so much fun watching Grayson learn to be a Daddy. Today Gray dressed him, and made sure to represent the Cubs (who Gray is praying wins the World Series) and our Carolina Panthers. Who ever thought I’d be swooning over a little boy in a jersey? Ha! And look at those little Chuck Taylors!!!

Lastly, I voted. If you had told me 5 years ago that I would have picked out MY 5 month old’s Halloween costume and voted for Donald Trump (of all people) this week…. I would have never believed you. But, I did. Life has a funny way of surprising you, doesn’t it?

I’ve had a lot to say about this election. My emotions have ranged from shock to fear to frustration to anger to complete and utter exasperation. It’s by far the biggest, most important election in the history of our nation, and there is so much at stake.

I know that no matter who is elected (it’s the lesser of two evils), our only hope is Jesus. No candidate is the answer to America’s problems. And no matter what happens, I know that I know that I know that Jesus Christ is in control. He is sovereign. He’s already won the battle.

However, I am proud to say that I voted for LIFE. I voted with the impending appointments of several supreme court justices in mind. I voted with respect for the soldiers who have and are still fighting for our freedom and our right to vote. With all this being said, GO VOTE!
