Fall Fun

This weekend was full of Fall festivities. Friday night we went to our small group's pumpkin carving fellowship. It was so refreshing to be with these precious friends. It was the first fellowship we had been to since Reese was born.

Cody, Shannon, me, and Jason
Beautiful friends (inside and out!)
Jason and I got really creative this year. The "R" stands for Rowe (or Reese). ; )

Yes, Cody is holding a!

All of the pumpkins
At the pumpkin patch Z picked out the medium sized pumpkin for himself and the little one for Reese.
Jaime made this cute Halloween bucket for Zach. I love it! She also surprised me with this little one for Reese. I will love getting it out and seeing it year after year during fall. Wow, such an amazing thoughtful gift honoring Reese.

Saturday we went to a little Halloween party. There was a monkey, jack-in-the-box, chicken, princess, elephant, ladybug, all sorts of fun characters. ; )

My little duck duck holding a chick

We had to trick or treat with the baby chickens, too. ; )

Thankfully Z only threw it down once. It was ok, I promise!

That my heart may sing to You and not be silent.
O LORD my God, I will give You thanks forever.

Psalm 30:12

Beautiful pictures...beautiful family=)

Jennifer said...

I love the buckets that Jamie made. Reese's is so little and sweet...just like her! :) I forgot to order one for Brody. I will have to make sure and do that next year. I think I may get her to make us a Christmas bucket to hold our Christmas cards that we receive. Any excuse for a cute bucket! :)

Had so much fun with you Friday night!! You are just a JOY to be around! Love you!

Brittany said...

Your little "Duck duck" is adorable! Hope you all had a fun Halloween!
The carving party looks like a lot of fun! I really wanted to host one or at least carve a family pumpkin, but the rain didn't let up much around here to let us go to the pumpkin patch. Buying it at the store just didn't seem the same!

I am glad that you have sweet friends to surround you at this time!

P.S., love your leopard scarf!:)

Ann said...


You are living out the admonition to weep with those who weep and rejoice with those who rejoice.

And we are blessed to watch you.

I love you!

I'm glad you guys had a fun time...

The pumpkins and bucket for Reese brought me to tears. How precious. My heart just aches for you, Katie.

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:38-39 (NLT)

Katie, I have been readin your blog for some time now and I just wanted you to know I am praying for you... things that you share and verses have blessed my heart. I am so sorry for your loss .. as some say ... loss. I like to think of it like she isn't lost. You know where she is. In her Heavenly Fathers arms. I can't understand your pain and don't have all the right words but I am thankful to have ran across your blog and your daughters life has impacted many I know. It has mine... I hope that even though I do not know you personally I can keep reading because I am excited to see what God is going to do in your life and with your family.
