{Five on Friday // Best Friends // TimeHop // DIY Project}

Happy Friday friends!! This week was a doozy! Mason and I were suffering from allergies and Nate ended up with a sinus infection. I love, love, love a change of season, but always forget what it does to our sinus' & allergies. Whew! I do have to say, I am much enjoying the cooler weather though. It's finally starting to feel like fall in Texas. I love it. I am so ready to pull out all of our Christmas decorations. The only thing holding me back is that I want a real Christmas tree. And, well, those don't come out until after Thanksgiving. I may start with the decorations, though.

Time for Five on Friday. And if I am being honest....all posts this week were drafts I had sitting in my blogger. I've been too busy drafting Christmas related posts! {#cantstopwontstop}. I just felt like it may be a tad too early to post them, though. Buuuuuuuuuttttt, we go on the Polar Express the 21st and after that I think it's fair game. I'm just so excited and ready for the season.

These two boys have gotten to spend a lot of time together lately. They will proudly tell anyone and everyone around them that they have been friends since they were just 1 years old. It's so cute. They call each other cousins at times and then at other times they are brothers that live in different houses. I love it. And of course they bicker like siblings too. But, I am so thankful for both of them. And for their friendship. And I pray that when they are 18 or order they will still be friends and that they will still proudly tell of their lifelong friendship.

Between sweet little baby Mason and one of my best friends having a baby this week I have baby fever like crazy. PS - why do they have to grow so dang fast?

Speaking of this sweet boy...he brought me home a rock from school this week. He said it looked like a heart and that it reminded him of me. So he put it in his pocket to bring to me. Oh, I melted. So blessed to be his mama. And what I think I loved most about this is that it's not even a perfectly shaped heart, but he saw it as a heart nonetheless.
