Fall Happenings...

It's been a busy autumn to say the least! We are expecting our third child and are pleased to announce that it is another "golden" boy! He is due in April, and we are hoping he sticks to the schedule unlike the other two! :)

In October, the boys and I (minus Shane due to coaching responsibilities) took a trip down to Greenville, SC for a weekend to attend the wedding of a family friend and to spend some time with Grandma and Papa Loudenslager, and Uncle Stevie. It was a beautiful weekend, and we thoroughly enjoyed the changing leaves and cooling temperatures.

For Thanksgiving, we had the Golden family join us at our home for the day and were thrilled that several of Shane's relatives from Florida were able to come! His brother IV was able to come meet his new nephew, Gage, and he brought his two children, Bailey and Lyric.

We were also excited that his Aunt Michel and cousin Caitlin could come up from Florida as well. Here we have Aunt Michel and Aunt Char caught in a moment when they aren't laughing and talking up a storm!

Lastly, we had Shane's cousin Amanda and her boyfriend Jeff in from the Burlington area here in NC.
Of course, we had the rest of the usual crew as well! :)
The day was absolutely beautiful,
so the kids were able to spend a majority of the time outdoors!

Later that evening, we took the kids to Mike's Farm for opening night of their Christmas Lights Hayride. It was a perfect night for the activity!

We hope you and your families had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We look forward to hearing from you as the Christmas season approaches!
