Hello new blog, fall and Brooke’s first day of school

Welcome to our new little blog.  Of course, we had to change the name from Four Girls & A Daddy.  That just wasn’t going to work anymore.  🙂  “Blissfully Blessed” was something that just randomly came to mind when thinking about our life.  Out of a list of five blog names it was the one that Landon picked!  I’m really enjoying WordPress, although I am severely technically challenged.  I am afraid I couldn’t figure out how to switch all the perma-links over, etc.  I’m confused, and if anyone has any advice, that would greatly be appreciated!


I can’t believe we are already saying good-bye to summer!  I really love the summer, but with the excitement of meeting baby Beckham, I’m welcoming fall with open arms.  I love every season, but there is something so “homey” about fall.   We have a LOT going on the next couple months, so I know that our little guy will be here before we know it.

Things I’m looking forward to…
Trip to South Carolina to see my best friend and her family
Brooke’s 5th Birthday
Lily & Lauren start “school” (one day a week)
Beckham’s Baby Shower
Starting a new small group at church with some AMAZING people
Pumpkin Desserts (of course!)
Cozy Sweaters and Boots
Beautiful Fall Weather
Family Time
Hopefully saying goodbye to some crazy allergies
Thanksgiving with my sweet family (of six!)

My sweet Brooke started school last week.  She did so fabulous, and I’m so excited for her to make new friends and learn new things.   There were definitely tears that morning, but I saved them for when I got to the car.

I can’t believe how grown-up she looks here.  Such a difference a year makes!  She is in the pre-k program which thankfully, is only half days.  I’m so thankful for my sweet girl.  She has such a tender, sweet heart.  She is always thinking about others before herself.  I am in awe at the fact that a 4 (almost 5!) year old has such a giving, caring heart.

For now we are enjoying the last remnants of summer – hope y’all are too!!!
