Yesterday was Ebby Lee's Fall Party at school. Last year (since she was in the baby class) they didn't really have parties or any big celebrations so this was a BIG deal. Poor Nixon missed out b/c he's in a baby room. But...luckily, he never knew kiddos were partying all around him. I asked Tab to go because I'm teaching and couldn't really come and hang out for the party. Of ALL days, his big boss was in town yesterday so he wasn't really sure if he'd be able to leave work at 1:00 to make it to a party BUT...Daddy pulled through and surprised her!! We hadn't said that he might come just in case he couldn't make it, but he said that when he walked in she was SO excited!! :)
Pebbles was showing off her art work.

Apparently, she enjoyed the cookie!

So sweet! :)

TCU Football/Harvest Party...

Saturday, this mama took the day off (with the help of my sweet high school you, Mackenzie!) to watch my hubby officiate the TCU football game.
Erin, one of my college roommates, and Marla went to the game with me. It was such a fun girl's day! The game was SOOOO HOT!! boring! TCU won 69-0!! So...we left a little early and hit the mall for some shopping.

Marla caught a shirt...the highlight of the day...ha! We needed more action down on that football field! After hitting the mall, we raced home to dress the kiddos up for the Harvest Party with our BFG.

Ebby Lee (Pebbles), Molly (Duck), and Olivia (Super Woman)

Bam Bam...I couldn't think of a costume that suited Nixon better! Perfect for him! He was unbelievably GREAT at the party considering that on Sunday night he woke up SCREAMING for hours!! I took him to the doctor today and the poor guy's ear drum had ruptured!! He is such a tough little thing!!

Check out Bam Bam..not following directions. He's supposed to be sitting down by Smith (Shrek).

Our BFG has DEFINITELY been "fruitful and multiplied"!! Look at all the kids! The Reyes opened their home and fabulous backyard/patio for this party. They did a wonderful job!! It was so much fun!!

Bam Bam is over it!! All done with the pictures.

Smith wasn't too happy about this, but isn't he the cutest Shrek you've ever seen??

Week in Pics...

On Saturday evening, we met the McAnallay's and Eason's at Cohen's birthday party in the park. Amber did a great job on his party. It was super cute!! This is Ebby Lee and her sweet friend, Luke.
I stole some of these off Andrea's blog. She did a super cute post about the party.

Apparently, Ebby Lee might like a big stack of party hats for Christmas! They kept her busy for a while.

Dinner of hot dogs and chips...yum!

Nixon enjoyed his cupcake!

So did Ebby Lee :)

So sweet!! Checking out Baby Mason. This is going to be part of my ammunition for baby #3. Not ready just yet! Don't get nervous, Mom! But..WHEN I'm ready this pic will help!!

Playing before church...looks like Nixon was still brushing his teeth! ha!

It was cooler this week. Nixon in his winter clothes!

Ebby Lee in her winter clothes.

One last picture...last night we babysat swapped with the Shulls. We watched their kiddos last night and they're watching ours next week. Anyway, look what handsome-man Smith was wearing! A Ranger's shirt!! We took this picture JUST for Andrew & Shay! :) He actually showed up wearing another shirt, but you better believe Tab thought it would be too funny considering his parents are die hard Red Sox & Yankee fans!

And...for my MO family, we are definitely a house divided during the World Series!! I'm cheering on those Cards and Tab is pulling for his Rangers. Nixon has both shirts and is giving them equal wear time. I meant to take a pic of that and forgot! So...since I write on this blog...Go Cardinals!! Happy Weekend!

Pumpkin Patch Trip #2...

What a perfect way to start the day with some brotherly/sisterly lovin!! Can't you tell that Nixon was READY for the pictures? ha!

He was a little unsure about feeding this BIG cow. He had a death grip on my arm.

Ebby Lee LOVED all the animals.

Good thing Daddy was with us. He's a pro at feeding all those animals!

My handsome guys :)

Right before the ride started, Daddy decided he'd join us. We just happened to see some friends while we were riding on this train ride...ha! The Waynes were there too!

Silly Boys on the hayride.

A look back...2009

2010 seems to be windy every year!

Tyler and her family joined us for a yummy hot dog lunch! And...ring pops for dessert.

We LOVE going to the pumpkin patch every year! Such a fun family tradition. I'll probably drag my kids there when they're in middle school kicking & screaming! ha! We had a GREAT day!!
