Proud momma!

So proud of little Lucy! She is such a champ. I sleep trained her this week and she did awesome. I really don't even feel like I did anything. The first night she cried for about a half hour and that was it. Now I can put her down for naps and bedtime awake (but drowsy) and she puts herself to sleep. Now I can actually get things done around the house, well if the other two let me. Before I felt like I was holding her all the time. And now I can get her on a schedule. Whew! I feel like I can breath again. :) I can't believe she is 4 months. It is bittersweet. I want her to be a baby forever but I also love that I can get her on a schedule and not feel permanently attached to a newborn anymore.

Dedicating Lucy

Last Sunday we dedicated Lucy at our church.  Basically it is a promise that we, as parents, will teach our child about Jesus and bring her up in a Christian home.  Our pastor prays over all the families that are dedicating while we stand in front of everyone.  It is a small thing but still very special! We didn't get very good pictures of us in church but here are some after the service.

 We had a fun Halloween season this year!  We had a few party's to go to, the kids were lucky to have a couple chances to get candy, and we just had fun!  Our small group had a little Halloween Party so Chris and I dressed up too.  I was a football player and Chris was a soccer player (creative huh?). 

 Chris was determined to make our yard spooky this year and it turned out so cute!  I loved it, and we definitely had some scared kids coming up to our door trick or treating. :)

Their scary faces, haha!

 We also got invited to a trunk or treat.  The kids loved it!

And some pics of trick or treating with friends!
