So, Taylor has newborn twin sisters. It's hilarious to think these precious babies will be Aunts in March!

Our week was full of little people, cheer practice, homework packets, tech week for Newsies which now has had three successful performances and plans for an upcoming baby shower under way. I slipped away with a friend to two local craft fairs and finally kicked off some Christmas shopping as result. The weekend was gorgeous and warm, something we are desperately grasping every ounce of beauty from because this too will pass. Quickly. Ready or not, November has arrived.
Greg got some big news. He is leaving UPS after 22 years on the 17th. He will be the new Senior Safety Engineer for Cummings in Columbus, Indiana. It will be a pretty hefty commute but he is happy to finally be back in his field of specialty, keeping people safe at work. The last three years at UPS haven't been fulfilling so it was time to move on. We realized he has never resigned a job before this one. All of his positions have been temporary jobs around college or high school until the billboard company he couldn't return to after his accident. To say he is a loyal employee, would be an understatement. I am ready to see my husband happy and valued at work again. Having him home for Christmas for the first time in eleven years is a serious bonus too.

I took my smallest two to hang out with the oldest in her apartment; however I won't be calling Kate one of the smallest much longer. At 5 feet 1 inch, she is quickly catching up to Makenna's 5 feet 2 inches. We try not to point it out often, as it is a bit of a sore subject to the seventeen year old. Kate on the other hand, is thrilled with this development.
Makenna has been at the theatre past my bedtime every night for the last two weeks in anticipation of opening night this next weekend. She is more than ready to wrap Newsies. But we saw her briefly last Sunday before she headed out to complete her Senior photos.

Greg joined us for a quick trip to the local apple orchard last Friday evening. He usually misses out on these little excursions so we were happy to have him along. Any excuse to be outside and together is good enough for us on these beautiful October days. We are storing up sunshine and sweet memories for winter.
And now this has happened. I redirected her attention several times the last few years from cheer to gymnastics but much to my dismay, she is officially a cheerleader for the elementary basketball team. I honestly didn't think she would enjoy it once she started. I was wrong. She loves it.
I am a cheer mom. And God is laughing.
