Fall is in the air.....kind of!

Happy fall y'all!!  

It is officially fall, but doesn't quite feel like it yet. It did cool off a bit, but still in the mid to upper 80s here. But well take it!!

Bren got an early birthday present from T and Pop Pop so he could get some use out of it before winter. He LOVES it!!!  We love our afternoon walks. 

My princess will be FIVE on Friday!!!  I can't believe it!  It really does fly by!  
Seriously, I mean yesterday she was born!!!  It is craziness!!

Since we already had her friend birthday party, were just having family over this weekend for pizza, cake, and presents. Her Uncle Matt, Aunt Amy, and cousin Mason are coming in to town to celebrate!  We are so excited to see Mason!  It's been awhile!!

Tomorrow is Hump Day and the weekend is almost here!
We can make it!!!

Here's to a fabulous rest of the week with my Firsties and to slow and fun nights with my family!

Princess Weekend

We had a great weekend!!  We celebrated Ky's birthday on Saturday with friends. We went downtown to eat at Kooky Canucks and then to ride the Cinderella carriage!  It was so much fun!  

The girls dressed in their princess dresses and look adorable!  

And Kylee had her on prince charming on the carriage ride! 

We couldn't get him to dress as Prince Charming, but he didn't have to!  He was still charming! 
The carriage took us around downtown, to the trolley station, to a few nice parks, and down by the river. It was a nice little ride!  I only did the 30 minutes because I thought the kids would get restless, but they so would have been ok!  It went by fast and they were loving it!  
Our horses Sammy and Barney were very pretty. We also rode with May, the carriage dog. I think that was B's favorite part!  

For Ky's birthday, Anna got her tickets to Disney on ice so they went to that today. She wore her princess dress AGAIN!  
That's ok....she's getting her wear out of that high dollar thing!!! Lol

She went with Anna and our cousins. She had a blast!  I definitely want to go next year!  She has talked about it since she got home!  
Thanks Annie!!!


And now the weekend is over.....:(. Why does it fly by so quickly!?  

Here's to a happy Monday and a great week!

Cinderella carriage....Princess Sophia dress

I think I'm more excited about this, than Ky!!  
Tomorrow were going downtown To eat and ride in the carriage for Ky's birthday. So exciting!!!!  

She's been wanting to ride in one for the longest time!  

The girls are dressing in their princess attire and poor Jaxon...well he'll probably be in everyday attire!  But he's their prince everyday!  
Love my son n law!

I'll add some more pics from our ride this weekend. I can't wait to see Ky's face when our carriage arrives!!

She's so excited that he laid out her new princess gown and took pictures to send to her G Mother! That's my girl!! :)

Silly girl!!!

Enjoy your Saturday and the cooler weather!!

Busy week & weekend shenanigans

I had a short, but jammed packed week last week. I was off two days....one for a work thing and the other for B's 9 month check up.
He's doing great!  Weighing in at 20lbs and 28in long. He's in the 50th percentile for weight and height. Ky was always in the 90th!!  
He is into everything and is mobile!!  He loves to eat, play with Lu and his sissy, and be outside. He is at such a fun age!
He likes to eat some table foods. His favs are mashed potatoes, carrots, and bread!  
He can now clap his hands, give five, and wave. He is talking more, saying mama, dada, dog, and no no! #mysmartboy
He can also give kisses!

At our new school, on September 11th, we have a parade and program to honor and remember those involved in that tragic day. I was thrilled to be involved with it this year for the first time. It was so neat and moving. Here is ky waiting on the band to start at the parade. 

On Thursday night, we had a GNO that was past due!  We had so much fun...maybe too much fun!!!  
We went to see this sexy hottie and his curly hair!
I LOVE HIM!!

And we saw Miranda lambert!
She's pretty awesome too!

We had a blast!  They put on an awesome show!  But it was a week night and were old so we were super tired on Friday!!
Oh and we also got rained on!  But it was worth it and it cooled us off!!

#weekendshenanigans
Saturday blew!  My team got their tails kicked and the hubs stupid team won!  BoOOo!!!!!   But it was the number 2 team in the nation, so what did we expect?!  I do know that TN is on the uppity up and were in the SWAMP next weekend!!  "Chew some gator!!!"  I'm actually excited about this game!  Come one boys! Don't let me down!!  

The weekend weather was super nice! We took the kids to Ft. Pillow park on Sunday to play. They had a blast, especially Bren!  It was really his first time to play on the equipment and he loved it!  

He so wishes he could play like his sissy!


Well that was my week and weekend!  How was yours?

Here's to an awesome and fast week and to an awesomer and slow, long weekend!

Terrific Tuesday

Happy Tuesday people!  Know why I'm excited?!  

Because tomorrow is HUMP DAY!!!  We're half way there folks!!  Woo hoo!!!!


Today was an awesome day (except for the sassyness of my 4 going on 18 year old that happened this morning!).  It was awesome because my day flew by and my firsties learned so much and it's a short week and my kiddos were quiet!  (They must have been tired!)

We are finally into a routine and way of doing things in the classroom. I like it so much better. I feel prepared and organized again!  Sweet!!! 

I have so many new things I want to try and now that I know my firsties better, I can get with it!!  This is going to be a terrific year!! 

Enjoy your Hump Day tomorrow!  I know I will and I'm excited for slightly cooler temps!

Photo Dump for the iPhone and Catchup

I really don't have much to say this morning, but I do have several pics I want to share. 

A catch up on new school....
Kylee is lovin kindergarten!  She loves her teacher and is starting to come out of her shell, a little. 
She has met a few new friends and plays with them everyday. I am so proud of my big princess!  She sure did grow up fast! 
She is so fun and eager to learn everything. She drives me nuts with her 192 questions per minute, but I know she is just curious about new things. She is so funny and like her daddy when it comes to being observant. She notices everything and soaks it all in!

A Bren update....
He is 9 mths old and growing like a weed! (And believe me weeds grow like crazy!  I just had one in my flower bed that was taller than my rose bush!!) 
He still isn't crawling, but he's getting wherever he wants by scooting across the floor!  I have never seen a baby do this. I've seen the army crawl and the rocking, but this is totally new!  He will get on his knees and tease us and then flops out on the floor and scoots away! Hilarious!
He's eating some table foods. He loves potatoes and carrots and nilla wafers. He can say "dada", "uh" for uh-oh, "mama", and "bye". He'll wave and clap and sometimes give five. He is growing super fast too!  SLOW DOWN!!!!!  Aaaaahhh!
Love that smile!!


Happy Labor Day, by the way!  We spent most of the weekend at the house. It was nice to stay home, but I miss the lake!  It was such a nice getaway!  Dad, if you're reading this....HINT! HINT!
We went to a friends house on Saturday to cook, swim, and watch football. Perfect day and Tennessee won!!  

Happy Football Season!

Kindergarten her I come!

This post is a few days late, but better late than never!  

I started 1st grade and my baby started kindergarten!!

It is so bittersweet!  I am so glad she can finally be in the same school as I am, but I can't believe she is old enough to be starting big school!  It's crazy to me!!  Just yesterday, my sweet little angel was born, weighing in at a whopping 4 pounds!  It just doesn't seem real. 

Well ready or not, the time has come and my baby is growing up!
They stagger the K kids in so tomorrow is only her 2nd day. She goes tomorrow and then starts going everyday on Wednesday. So far she loves it. She was mad at me when I told her she wasn't going back until Monday!  Wow!!  I hope this continues!  

I am having a hard time adjusting because I have to get an extra person ready in the mornings!  When she was in preschool, her daddy had to get her ready and take her but now it's on me!  I'm sure once I get used to it, it will be better. Like I said she's only been once! Lol
Well here's to an awesome year for me and her both!! It's off to a great start!!
