Playdates for everyone

Friday, September 30th, 2016

Michelle had the day off so we took full advantage by going antiquing and having lunch. We did not plan the matching shirts…. Great minds think alike!

We shopped until school let out…. then it was playdate time for the boys.

5th graders!

3rd graders!

Super fun!

See you at the Pole

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016

A friend of mine organized a “See you at the Pole” morning at school. We got there early and met at the flag pole to pray for our country and our school. Each child was given a verse to read. They were all so good and read with confidence. Such a great way to start the day!

I went back up to school to have lunch with them. 5th and 3rd grade never looked so good!

Gas Monkey

Sunday, September 25th, 2016

My brother came in from California for a few days. He wanted to visit the Gas Monkey garage in Dallas. Peyton had a blast seeing all of the cars and looking through the shop. Thanks Uncle Tim for the tshirt and cap!

Big League Dreams

Saturday, September 24th, 2016

Peyton’s baseball team had a big tournament weekend. A couple of the games were played at the Big League Dreams field in Mansfield. They had a great time and the games were exciting to watch. Even with the humid weather and at times thunderstorms, it was all worth it! Good job Warriors!

Happy Birthday in Heaven Dad

Wednesday, September 14th, 2016

Here we are spending another one of his birthdays without him. I honestly can’t believe we’ve made it this far. It amazes me I can still function without having him here. It hasn’t been easy. God is pulling us through it most days.

I bought balloons for him this morning. I drove around and gave one to my mom, some of my friends, and put one on my sister’s front porch. We all celebrated dad in our own way. It would have been his 86th birthday.

When I stopped by my parent’s house, mom had decorated for Dad’s birthday just like she used to when he was alive. So sweet!

She told me later she let the balloon go in her backyard for dad.

I dropped Brook’s balloon off on her porch.

I gave one to my friend Michelle too. She later sent me a video of her balloon release in her backyard. I just love my friends and family!

When the boys got home from school they wrote notes to Poppy, then we walked to the park to release them. It was emotional for all of us. We miss him so much.

Happy Birthday Dad! We love and miss you so much!

So, it’s been awhile

Monday, September 12th, 2016

Here we are again and it’s been forever since I emptied my phone! I cant believe how fast the days go! Anyway, back in August Peyton turned 11, school started, and we’ve been busy! These pictures are not in any order whatsoever!

We helped our church hand out free t-shirts…. Fun for the whole family!

Peyton made a ramp in the backyard to jump his bike and scooter. I told him he needed to protect himself, so this happened….

Falling has never been so funny!

Did I post this cousin picture already? I don’t know but Happy Birthday Peyton, 6 months ago!

Apparently we had Peyton blow out candles on his pancakes…. Happy Bday, again!

Family game night.

Hot tub fun.

Jayden joined a summer basketball league with his buddies. They had a blast and did awesome.

Technology playdate…. I don’t get it.

And snacks for the 3rd graders.

This is the kind of playdate I DO understand!

Guess where we’re headed….

Go Rangers!

Have I mentioned we had our master bath remodeled? Super fun.

Our shower is greatness!

When you get home from a Chuck E Cheese party.

One of my favorite part of the holidays is pumpkin spice. Loving Target for this!

Date night at a new restaurant, Craft & Crab!

So good!

I just love having my favorite people over! Always a great time!

I also love how close my mom and Jason’s dad are.

Michelle and I love antique shopping and refurbishing things for our house. Someday we will have time to open a store and antique shop for a living. A girl can always dream! Michelle made this shirt for our future biz. Although the name MAY BE changed to Pretty Chippy…. There is video, and it’s super.

Good Things

Saturday, September 10th, 2016

There is a store on main street Grapevine that is one of our favorites. We can’t go to Grapevine without browsing through Good Things For All Seasons. They always have the cutest seasonal stuff and the Dept 56 Christmas and Halloween display in the back of the store is greatness! I can’t tear Jayden away from it when we visit.

The creator of Dept 56 was at the store for a few hours so we took a couple of our “spooky town” water towers to get them signed. It was packed!

Our “spooky town” is looking awesome!

life things

Friday, September 9th, 2016

With school starting and the germs in full force I’m stocking up on my oils and all things healthy.

Jayden and his first bee sting.

Turning 11 calls for a well check visit! A few shots and we were on our way.

Loving my new shutters Jason built for my new favorite antique find!

Sweet Shay.

Peyton tried out to be mascot for school. Go Tigers!

So Jayden is helping himself now. Seriously when did he get so big?

Ranger is popular with the kittens.

Peyton’s team had custom Rtic mugs made. Love them!

Just hangin’ at Rangers tonight.

Kitten party!
