Since Saturday...

Here are a few pictures I was able to snap on my cell phone camera at Saturday's wedding... Mom & Dad...
Rick & Jess...
Amanda & I...
Ann & Brian's ceremony begins...




Sunset wedding... gorgeous.

Pronounced as Mr. and Mrs.
Another "Mr. & Mrs."...
Sunday morning was early as Rick, Jess and I caught a flight to Charlotte together (before boarding separate flights - one to Raleigh and one to Syracuse)... Had to get some morning fuel...
It was so good to be home... I so missed my husband and kiddos...
The last few days back in NC have been absolutely beautiful! The leaves are falling fast, but colorful as ever! It's amazing how creation stirs me up to worship our Creator! It's overwhelming at times. I found myself, after dropping the kids off for school on Monday, wanting to burst into song (which would have made for an entertaining sight for all the parents in carpool line -ha)...


This is in our driveway looking to the neighbor's yard...
Our backyard area...
Titus was Mr. Explorer...
Monday night, (while Tony was stuck in Cincinnati/Kentucky airport), the kids and I attended a parents' night at their elementary school... pizza (yummy!)...


Joshua and his friend, Caleb...
During one of our rotations...
The boys decided to sit at different tables...
Each of the kids received their own geo-board...



Tuesday, I just had to take another picture... beautiful...
After school on Tuesday, I made apple cider, put Pandora on a Christmas station and we decorated the Christmas tree... great joy!
One of Titus' favorite spots... on top of the sofa with the window view of the front yard...
After being stuck overnight in Cincinnati, Tony finally made it home Tuesday. After homework and baths, the boys pulled out boxing gloves and put on a show for papa. They were hilarious. Joshua just giggled the whole time (which is contagious at times:-)...

Is the end of the week already here?!. Where has the time gone?!. Makes me think of the book of Ecclesiastes...

A Time for Everything

3 For everything there is a season, and la time for every matter under heaven:

2 a time to be born, and a time to mdie;

a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;

3 a time to kill, and a time to heal;

a time to break down, and a time to build up;

4 a time to nweep, and a time to laugh;

a time to mourn, and a time to odance;

5 a time to pcast away stones, and a time to qgather stones together;

a time to embrace, and a time to rrefrain from embracing;

6 a time to seek, and a time to slose;

a time to keep, and a time to tcast away;

7 a time to utear, and a time to sew;

a time to vkeep silence, and a time to speak;

8 a time to love, and a time to whate;

a time for war, and a time for peace.

The God-Given Task

9 What xgain has the worker from his toil? 10 I have seen ythe business that zGod has given to the children of man to be busy with. 11 He has amade everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man's heart, yet so that he cannot bfind out what God has done from the beginning to the end. 12 I perceived that there is cnothing better for them than to be joyful and to ddo good as long as they live; 13 alsoethat everyone should eat and drink and take pleasure in all his toil—this is fGod's gift to man.

14 I perceived that whatever God does endures forever; gnothing can be added to it, nor anything taken from it. God has done it, so that people fear before him. 15 That which is, halready has been; that which is to be, already has been; and God iseeks what has been driven away.1
