{Rodeo Fun}

We went to the rodeo last week, Jim and I have not been to one in years, our kids have never been.  We really enjoyed it, Hannah not so much, she constantly whined about wanting to go in to the fair to ride a few rides.  We had to continuously tell her it's not about just her, we are all enjoying something different and that she should do the same.  She perked up, she really wanted to ride some rides, ha! Rides at the fair are so $$$, like a buck a ticket, and its 5 tickets per ride, yeah, not good.  She rode 2 rides, and each person got to choose 1 food treat that they wanted, Hannah and I got a corndog and the guys got some pizza.  Fair food is always so good, fried and unhealthy but still good once a year or so! Giddy Up Folks!!!

{More Summer Pics}

 I am back with more pictures from our summer. We did lots of swimming, I mean lots, it's just what you do in Texas summers.

I just love it when I pull the camera out at the pool and everyone is ready to pose, love the fun pool shots, these guys are a bunch of fish!
New hairstyle that needs to be done again, my hair grows so fast.

This silly girl getting ready to do a science experiment, something she made up.

Pretty chicken tacos, yum!

Lots of snowcone eating, cousin Molly-Kate spent the night with us and I told her we would break out the snowcone maker during her visit and that she could eat as many as she wanted, and she surely did!!

And here they are with their Sonic drinks, which we had several times a week, we love happy hour, we still do, we now go after I pick the kids up from school!

{Fall is Calling}

I am so in the "fall zone" it's not even funny, I am longing for cool weather, but here in Texas that can be very tricky, the weather teases us from one day to the next! Fall has always been my favorite time of year, I love it!  Like most of you out there, I have been casing Pinterest like a mad woman for months now getting my fall/halloween decor all planned out, I am so excited about some of the new arrangement I am putting together.  I am also making some changes throughout my house that I am so excited about, like some shelves that I redid and hung last night in my dining room, love them!! and the new china cabint that we brought back from Dallas a few weeks ago that my m/inlaw got for me at a garage sale, at first we didn't think it needed to be painted, but, after staring at it sitting in the dining room for several weeks now, it's obvious that it needs more than just new hardware, isn't that always the way it works??

 All of these pictures make me giddy, yeah, I am weird like that!!
 Love these containers with all the candy, there is no way on this earth I could or would want to keep candy in jars like this at my house, my kids and (Jim & I) would eat until our teeth rotted! ha!
I can't wait to get my glittery pumpkins out, here lately I could swear that I hear my fall crates in the attic calling my name, I just keep telling them just a bit longer and then I will dig in and decorate my little heart away!!

I hope you have a great Monday friends!!

{Austin Trip}

As I have mentioned before, I was not a good blogger this summer, but I do need to document our summer hi-lites, because this blog is my diary!  So I will be doing this in parts, the first is our trip to Austin to see my brother and his family!

The girl cousins having some lunch, love these girls so much and they love being together!

And the 2 young boy cousins, Asa and John Charles, what can I say except, silly, goofy & precious!! haha!!

And...the oldest boy cousin gets in on the fun, and these 2 little guys just love "their Cameron" and he is so good with them, rides on his shoulders, wrestling, and just acting silly!

These pictures are of the girls "Building Bears", Hannah had never done it and when we saw the store she just knew this is what she wanted to spend her treat money on...

What a cute process it was, they got to stuff, bathe and pick out some clothes and hair accessories for their bears or dogs.  So darling, they loved on their little animals the whole trip, they had pagents for them in the hotel, so adorable!!!  We had a nice time on our trip!!!
