Amy Schaeperkoetter Herman, Olivia and I found ourselves on your old stomping grounds today learning about Winston Churchill. After answering the question, "Why didn't Amy go to school at Mizzou like you did?" and the inevitable questions that followed, she said, "Cool, my aunt is a LEGEND!"

I suggest no one attempt to run on a treadmill while watching SportsNation's 44 Jeers of October. It's difficult to simultaneously run and laugh hysterically.

If you're a sometimes-stressed-out mom looking for a cute family movie that ISN'T ANIMATED, check out Moms' Night Out. Lots of laughs, a sweet message about just being yourself (and "good enough"), and a sure-to-break-out family dance party at the end! ‪#‎MondaynightRedboxfun‬

My now 6 year old daughter brings so much joy to her parents, siblings, and friends! She has an infectious smile, a huge heart, and is such a caring sister to Ivie and Bryce! Today is your day, sweetie! Happy Birthday, Macie! We love you so much! Although you can slow down this growing up thing if you want.

Happy Birthday to my best friend, wife, and loving mother to our three kids! I can't imagine having a more perfect person to live all three of those roles with us. We love you!!!

Something about Bryce running back and forth between the girls' rooms exclaiming, "It's Mommy Day!" makes me hope that today is the day my cough will just give up and move on...

Hill Ridge Farms (2014)

Another year, another Hill Ridge Farms fall adventure with the Devers.  Before working on this post, I spent some time looking at previous years' posts.  What great memories to see the kids growing up and changing from year to year.  Our family (or at least Dale and I) really cherishes these wonderfully fun days that we get to spend together as a family.

At this point, there is no reason to include words in these posts.  The attractions at Hill Ridge don't change much from year to year.  Nor do the sweet kids' smiles.  But I look forward to enjoying these pictures for years to come!
