The last couple of weeks, I have been trying to stay busy. There have a been a few days that I just had to play catch up and sleep a lot of the day but all in all, Preslee and I have had some fun times with family and friends.
Preslee and I were so happy to have Jillian, Brody and Jennifer spend the day with us a couple of weeks ago. We played all day and ate a good lunch at Cracker Barrel. We miss our weekly play dates with the Francis family but I am so thankful for them making the 4 hour trip down to see us!
Then the next week we had Preslee's best friends, Caroline and Annabel come down to visit us for the day! I love their mommas so much so it was so good to spend the day with them. I was very exhausted that day but we still had fun playing in Nanny's play room and then ate a great lunch at the Honeycomb!
We loaded up for lunch in my moms van! We laughed at how we seriously couldn't imagine having multiples!
Then we had our first Halloween!! I had already bought her bumble bee outfit on etsy and I wanted her to have pics from her first Halloween so I made myself dress her up and walk her up and down my parents street.
When I was fixing her hair like antennas, I felt like a childhood dream was coming true! haha! I was so excited to be fixing my baby doll's hair!
We trick-or-treated with our spider friend Alli!
Cutest little bee ever!
Trick-or-treating pro! She loved getting to suck on a sucker!
One of my very best friends lives in town and our girls are only 3 weeks apart. I was so excited to get a picture of Elliott and Preslee together for their first Halloween!
We never got them to both look at us but I love all the pics we got! They are both full of personality and I am glad these girls now get to grow up together!
Halloween night was difficult. I wasn't too bothered by the fact that Matt wasn't physically with us because I had expected that he would be working. But the fact that I couldn't send him pictures of our bumble bee and hear how much he loved her costume just about killed me. I am glad I made myself carry on and make this memory but I am just so sad he wasn't apart of her first Halloween.
I feel like I am surviving. I am trying to make plans for my life with Preslee. We have moved back to our hometown where my parents, his mom and family and many of my friends live. I never would have imagined that I would be back here after leaving 6 years ago, but right now this town is comfort for me and I feel like I am doing the right thing by being here. I question just about everything about my life and wonder what Matt would say or do but I know without a doubt, he would want us here where we feel safe with family support!
