Bring on November

This year has flown by. It’s unreal. I keep trying to figure out how to slow things down but with everyone being all over the map I just can’t seem to make it happen. I seem to have only pics of dogs this month.

Thankful again for warm temps.

Feeling all the feels this Fall with lots of things changing. Again. I will have two kids out of the house next year and possible changes for the rest of us.

Trying to get a family pic and FAILING big time. The blurry one was the best one!! UGH!

That was November around here. Super busy for me for working and happy to be done!

October Part two

I was doing a photoshoot when I saw this gorgeous butterfly and had to stop and grab a couple shots.

She stole her brothers hat

These boys are crazy.

I love these two (three) so much.

I took Blake’s Senior pictures

Still in a bit of denial about all that.

Wrapping up with Halloween and the parade at Eva’s school ๐Ÿ™‚


Austin gets a “Fall Break” at Ohio state so we pulled the other kids out of school and went to Asheville for a long weekend. We had never been. Well Austin had been nearby to Brevard for a running camp when we lived in Chapel Hill.

We rented a cute little historic bungalow near downtown that was cozy and just perfect for our family.

Blake was SO into the Moog store.

We took the older kids to the Biltmore

I wasn’t sure it would be worth it but I am so glad we went. So much history, such an amazing property. it reminded me so much of Downton Abbey.

Blake and Cole decided they wanted to hang out downtown so we went for a hike with Austin and Eva.

We also went to the art district where we told the kids no touching (thinking Eva) but Blake is the one that broke something. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Such a great little trip getting away with the crew.

Texting boys to see what they want for the car ride

First night we got in kinda late but we still needed dinner so we decided on a pizza place that had games as well. It was the perfect option.

The last day the boys went shopping for stuff to take home and Blake decided on a poem from a street artist. I love that!

And that my friends is why I absolutely loved Asheville.

– can’t seem to fix those sideways pics. WordPress….

October wrap up part one

Once again feeling thankful that I can back date and get these pictures up!

October was a warm month so we spent a lot of time outside in the backyard. Andy and Eva like to dissect the buckeye and black walnuts that they find in the backyard.

There was also a lot of trampoline time. Blake and friends shot a firecracker underneath it and put a hole in it over the summer but it is still hanging in there. It’s got to be at least 15 years old.

And the swings

She is beautiful

And these crazy silly dogs

It was a good Cross Country season for Cole

Blake participated somewhat reluctantly. At the end of the season they ask them all what they like best and what they like least. What he liked least was “the running” ๐Ÿ™‚

XC alums came back for the Eisenhart

Blake went to Homecoming with a friend

Part two soon.

September wrap up

Gotta love that I can post date since it actually now December and I need to catch up!

Evenings around the firepit, Eva and I did a lot of dance parties. Her taste in music has changed so much this year and she is turning into a teenager already.

Eva picking the music while we played a few games of UNO.

Lots of warm weather has meant lots of trampoline time still working on flips. And Hudson is obsessed with the pink pool. One day I hope he has a real one ๐Ÿ™‚

We had the Evening Street back to school bash and the olders even joined us. So cool for them to see teachers that they had so many years ago that are still there.

Soccer and Cross Country dominated our weekends.

That wraps up September ๐Ÿ™‚
