I'm just posting because I like this pic of me and Sissy and I don't want to lose it. Would have been better if she wasn't such a wiggly little girl, but at this point I'll take what I can get.

reindeer run?

So first things first, that little baby below is just toooo cuuutte.
Next, I'm 31! I'm as old as I remember my older sisters, which means that they are 45 and above, which is beyond my mental capacity to accept. Aging is so hard for me to deal with. Not in a "oh I'm getting wrinkles" kind of way, it's more like, it's hard for me to accept that time doesn't stand still. (Time waits for no man) I fight against the idea that we will never be young again. So seeing others age around me I guess is humbling. We are mortals, and I don't like it lol. 
In honor of my "I will not go gently into that good night" Campaign, I walked/sometimes ran a 5k, whoot whoot! 
I'm super proud of my accomplishment. I actually did something that was not Mom related! It was all Sarrah(no, that's not a typo, I have two R's in my name), and it felt really good to get back to doing something that was strictly for myself. Lol, in fact, I set this goal while I was in the hospital recovering from having Kristin. I guess that also plays into my sense of satisfaction. I set a goal and accomplished it. So now I'm on to bigger and better things. I'm looking for another run to do in a couple of months. My next goal will be to run the whole 5k. I've got a lot to work on and I wish I could find a class, guide book or something to give me the basics, but for now I am doing a lot of online research and working toward correcting my stride and other such things. So here's to a new non-mom, non-wife, all me goal. Running a complete 5k.
Stuck on the couch for about an hour :) 
Happy Birthday To ME!!!!!!
Word of the Day, Keeping Love Alive lol 



My Kids are weird 
Whoot Whoot, Bucket List 
Seriously, had such a good time. Maybe, I need to get out more lol. 





 Would never have done it without these girls to inspire me.

P.S. CAN THE PRIVATE BLOGGERS PLEASE ADD ME. I was missing for a long time and didn't realize everyone switched to using the private setting. sarrahdillon@gmail.com

Harvest Part 2 and some other stuff

Birthday Party Fun 
So, lets talk about HarvestFest again.
This year Caleb and I worked the Bible Study Booth. We switched it up big time this year. We held a coloring contest at our booth with the idea that while the kids were busy we could talk to the parents. We also asked some of the young people to wander the crowd with a Bible study surveys in an effort to contact more people. The outcome of everyone's hard work was AMAZING. We passed out at least 250 outreach packets made up of 1.CANDY 2.flyers for Bible studies, bus ministry & church information,  we secured 40 Bible Studies that night & gained 90 new follow up contacts for the Bus ministry!!!! Makes all the hard work totally worth it. 
Lord willing, next year we are definitely going to keep the coloring contest idea and make improvements from there. It was such an amazing feeling to count up all the surveys and realize in one night there were 40 solid contacts made. 

So yup. Very cool. 
In other weekend news. I just turned 31. In honor of my birthday I am going to participate in a 5k next week. Pretty excited about that. Thankfully this 5k is a fun run, so it is ok if you walk most if it lol. 
I think that's it for now.

HarvestFest

Above is our annual harvest fest pic. Not sure how long I will leave it there so look while you can!

Besides that I'm going to tell you a little story about something that happened during H.F.


Soooo, Wyatt was lost (to us) for about 30 full minutes. That's right. For about THIRTY minutes I could not find him anywhere. How did this happen? Well he was supposed to be with one person, and that person said he was with another, and everyone was sure he was with this other person, and someone finally spoke up and said, I told him to go to his Dad. Which Wyatt never did. So Dad thought I had him, I thought a family member had him and every family member thought the other had him. Soo. We finally figure out that the kid is lost and we can not find him anywhere!!!! I mean there are five people looking for this kid. I'm starting to really panic. Then out of nowhere I look up and one of my nephews has Wyatt with him. I walk over there and am told, I just looked over and he was standing right there. Where was right there you ask?? Right there was in line for the Bear Hunt Game. The kid was playing games the whole time, THE WHOLE TIME! So I look down at Wyatt, I am both upset and relieved, and I ask him what he was doing and why did he walk off; he says, Oh I was looking for Christian (a different nephew). Really, because the kid had a handful of candy he had won from a playing games. 

Soo on the way home I tried to talk to Wyatt about how dangerous it is for him to walk off alone.
S: Wyatt you can't go off by yourself, someone mean could find you and take you away from us. They can do mean things to you and make you very sad. You have got to stay with someone ALL the time.
W: If someone tries to take me I will just punch him in the stomach and he will be dead.
S:No, Wyatt, listen. You are a little boy. You have to stay with a big person. I was very scared because I couldn't find you. Remember there are mean people that can hurt you. You have to stay with us all the time.
W: No mom, If  I have a Spiting Cobra in a cage and someone tries to take me, I will throw my snake on the ground and it will bite him and he will be dead.
S: *mental head slap* Wyatt you don't have a Cobra and you are a little boy. You need to stay with us all the time.
END OF CONVERSATION

Soo, the next afternoon while we are playing in the backyard Wyatt comes up to me and says
W: Mom, I really need a Spitting Cobra.


Not sure how I'm going to get him to understand that not everyone in the world is nice.

Nine months old.


Sunday night
 Sissy is officially nine months old! Can't believe how fast this year has gone by. Still working on ideas for her party. The biggest issues is venue. I'm assuming it's going to be cold on her Birthday, so I need an indoor area. I keep trying to talk myself into doing it at our house, but it's soooooo tiny. On the other hand the church fellowship hall is pretty large, and I don't really want to commit myself to decorating the whole thing. So, as of right now, all things are still "to be decided".
Daddy's Girl 
Ok so this is how Zane came into the sanctuary from his Sunday School class. I didn't even realize how dirty he was until well into service lol. I was told they ate a red snack. Not sure what that means, but whatever it was Zane definitely liked it. :)
