These boys sure have grown since these pictures were taken in 2011. Plus we've added a boy.

Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the weather, the colors, the activities........just about everything about it. One of our favorite things to do is go to Wild Things Farm. There we get to pick out a small pumpkin, pet the goats and pigs plus see other animals, go on a hayride and lots of other activities. It's something we look forward to every year.

Six years ago today our lives changed forever. I had always heard how great it was to be a grandparent, that there was nothing like it and knowing how much I love being a parent, I knew I would love being a grandparent. BUT I was not ready for how in love I would be with this tiny bundle from the second I saw Noah. I just wanted to cry I was so happy and in love. I couldn't get enough of him. Jamie and Kacee lived in the town I work in so most days at lunch time I would go over there to just hold him and stare at him. Gary and I jumped at every chance we could to babysit (and still do for all of them).
Noah turns six today. I love what a wonderful young man he is growing up to be. My prayer for Noah is to always love Jesus with all his heart and to grow up to be a Godly man like his Papa and his Daddy.

I don't know why I haven't already posted this, maybe I thought I had but if I have......Oh Well. Kacee had been telling me that she was having an "open house" the first part of September for their new house. I thought it was kind of strange since they hadn't been in the house but only a few weeks but whatever. I also thought it kind of strange that Jenny was coming in for it but at the same time thought it was nice of her. Kacee also told Jamie that's what this gathering was. She invited all of their friends and we also invited a lot of the people from the church because they were asking when they could come see the house. After all of their friends had arrived and some of the church people, Carah called everyone to attention and gathered everyone in the main room. I thought we were going to have a prayer over their house but then Carah announced that Jamie was going to pop some balloons that were hanging on the wall to reveal the gender of their baby. (so this was really a gender reveal party) As he popped them, pink and blue confetti spilled from one of the balloons. Everyone looked puzzled and Jamie looked stunned to say the least. Twins??? Oh my!!! Kacee even looked stunned. Then Carah brought out a gift for Kacee to open and it was this:

Well, it is going to happen. I never really wanted it to, I've dreaded it for a long time but looks like it's going to happen. It's been a long time coming and I don't really know how we are going to cope but I'm sure we'll find a way. The empty nest syndrome is hitting at the Brown house. We have had a lot of changes this past year and especially the last few months. We have gone from this

Over the Labor Day weekend, Jonah spent Sunday night with us. Just him. He was so excited and truth be told it was because he was going to get to watch his favorite tv shows as much as he wanted. Both of the older boys love the show Octonauts. It is really pretty educational on the subject of ocean creatures. We are going to look for a lot of them when we go to the beach. After watching a bazillion episodes, we went outside to wash the beach toys we are taking with us on our trip. We got the dawn dish soap, a bucket, the water sprayer and the toys. We got them all washed and in the bag I got to take them with us and then Jonah wanted to "wash" some of his toys and his wheelbarrow. I put a little dish soap in the wheelbarrow, gave him the water sprayer and away he went. He said it was "under flowing". Then he asked to put just a little more soap in the water. His little bit and mine are just a little different as he proceeded to squirt a lot of soap in the water. Here is what we got.

I know if she reads this she will probably just sigh and shake her head but that's what you get for being the baby of the family. My baby girl had a birthday this weekend. Both of my girls have summer birthdays just a month apart. They are the oldest and the youngest with the two ornery boys in between. This weekend though, one of Jess's youth girls' parents hosted a surprise birthday party for her at their house. So sweet of them. Even though Jess is no longer the youth pastor, she is the director of student ministries and still loves to be around those teenagers.
