The Pumpkin Patch

I had grand plans for finding an amazing pumpkin patch with a maze and everything.  The closest one that I could find was an hour away.  And then my darling Brenda called and had noticed one only 20 minutes away!  Fabulous!  It wasn’t as grand as I was hoping, but it was still really cool.  The kids had a blast and we got some pretty cute pictures.

Long Weekend

Happy Labor Day Weekend!  Hope you all are getting some much-needed rest and relaxation this weekend.  Here is Texas, we are finally enjoying some simply gorgeous weather.

George and I literally spent all of yesterday on the couch watching movies.  It was so nice.  Can’t remember the last time we were able to do that.

Today, we went to our good friends’ house for a bbq.  It was great!

Jacie and Mazzy.  Friends since birth.  Literally.

 My water broke with Mazzy while I was holding an almost two-week old Jacie.

Mazzy’s shot of Jacie.

This is Bailey.  She sang us funny country songs.  About tractors and farms and dirty swimming pools.

Chloe and Bailey.  Another shot by Mazzy.  She’s good.  🙂

It’s always convenient that the Mr. and I take separate cars whenever we plan on staying somewhere for a few hours.  Little Miss needed to come home early after an exhausting day.  When we left, all the kids (and there were a lot) were playing freeze tag in the dark.

Tomorrow will be another lazy day with the kids and Grandy.  My honey has to work. 😦 Enjoy your day off if you have one!

Mazzy is 12!

I can’t believe it.  I really can’t.  But it happened.  She turned 12.  My sweet, sweet girl is now one more moment closer to being grown.  Gosh, I love this kid.  Her birthday was on Sunday.  We celebrated last Friday while on vacation with the family.  It was a Justin Bieber party.  Oh yes, it was.  She got lots of goodies and we got her an instant camera.  Instant success!  Happy 12th Birthday, my sweet Princess!
