I LOVE the Fall!

I have to say
I think I may just love everything about Fall!
I am not really fond of heat
and Fall means the end of baking in the summer sun.
It means sweatshirts
hot cider
beautiful colors
cute hats and clothes for my kiddos
fresh, crisp air
Trick-or-Treating for my kids
Husker Football
Really, I am trying to think of something I don't like about Fall,
and I am stuck.
I love it!
September 22 is tomorrow and I am very ready to say
"Goodbye Summer!"
Well, appearently here in Colorado, the sentiment is more
"Good RIDDANCE Summer!" because
today it snowed.
That's right people - I said snowed!
I could not believe what I was seeing, but there it was
little white flakes falling from the sky.
It started while we were driving to pick Madison up from her clinic
and I said "Look Libby, it's snowing."
and Liberty said
"It's snowing!?! That stinks!"
I agree. I love fall,
however winter and I are not good friends.
It was pretty though, I must admit.

I tried to get a picture of the snow. It was actually coming down pretty strong.
(You can't really tell from the picture though
If you click on the pictures you can see it better)

My little snow princess (just a reminder - still officially summer when taken)

How could I not love walking out my front door and seeing this? If I haven't said it in a few postings - I love Colorado

And how in the heck could I not love seeing my cute boy in these kinds of cute outfits!
I will readily admit - I am addicted to cute kids clothes! And cute Kids for that matter!

Taken while at a stop light in Jacks little mirror - I think he was trying to uncover his eyes
What a stinkin' cute kid!

Madison's First Day of Preschool (a little late)

I am not sure why it took me so long to post this
a lot has been going on around here for the last month or so
not the least of which is Maddy starting not only Preschool
but last week she started her Autism clinic too.
She is a busy little girl now, and she seems to be loving it.

Here she is running into her school

She was very excited to see the "fish and birds" that they have in the classroom.

We are very excited for Maddy at the start of her new adventures!
She is learning so much and is growing by leaps and bounds.

He Gave Up

Last night was a little stressful at the Hernandez House
Brett and I were being pulled in a million different directions
trying to bathe the kids,
feed them dinner
and put them to bed.
Poor little Jack got the short end of the stick
as all this was going on.
He sat on the living room floor complaining.
All he wanted was to nurse and go to sleep.
But, we needed to get so much done that he had to wait.
After about 20 min's I noticed he wasn't crying anymore.
I went to the living room
and this is what I found:

I guess he just gave up.
The sad thing about this is that it happened earlier
at nap time too.
Poor guy.
I think he might be starting to like sleeping on the floor.
He looked so peaceful.
I love you Jack!
My sweet baby boy.

Madison's 4th Birthday

Labor day was Madison's 4th Birthday
We went the a great mall up in Littleton
and got her pictures done and went shopping
We got ice cream cones and went to a park
it was a great, carefree Labor Day
and a fun way to celebrate Maddy's Birthday
as a Family.
On Saturday we had a party for her
at the park with a few friends.
She really enjoyed herself.
Thank you to everyone who joined us
in helping make Madison feel like the
very special girl that she is!

She wanted a Butterfly Birthday
She is WAY into butterflies right now.

The Birthday party Shirts - a Hernandez Family TraditionBig Sister Liberty's Shirt
Spencer's "Dress"(as he called it)
Jack's Shirt
Mommy's Shirt
Daddy Shirt
I had to add this one - It's just so cute
She blew out her own candles this year! YEAH!
And she gave herself a BIG hand for doing it too.
At the Mall on her Birthday opening gifts from Grandma & Grandpa
Thanks Grandma & Grandpa!
Now that's a Happy Birthday Girl!

32 Years

32 years ago, my life began.
Now, I know what you are saying:
"But Becky! You are still a beautiful and youthful 20-something!"
While that is true,
My life did indeed start 32 years ago.
On September 2, 1977
A Man Married a Woman
in the Temple of God.
That Man and that Woman had 3 children
and while I know that those children were PERFECT from the start,
They raised their children and taught them
right from wrong,
to Love their Heavenly Father,
That families are FOREVER.
And because of their teachings,
I now have a family that I get to
teach right from wrong,
to Love their Heavenly Father,
and that families are really FOREVER.
Thank you Dad and Mom for
leading me, guiding me, and walking beside me.
If I don't say it enough, I'll say it again:
I love you both SO much!
