Today we Honor Veterans!

I am reminded today of what it costs to be an American.  Some have given all, some have given parts of themselves they can never get back.  I am so proud to come from a family with an awesome grandfather and brother who served.  I also have a brother in law that was a marine.  We ahve many friends that have spent time voerseas.  So, today I remember those who did not make it home and I remember what and who makes us free!  Here are a few of my vets!

Doing our Homework

Steven has really turned around in his schoolwork. One night we were doing our homework and Steven had a project to do. He worked real hard to get it done. He even has turned it in and had it graded too!

Well Bryce had to do his homework too. We cannot do anything without Bryce doing it too!

Pumpkin Patch

We joined the millions of other crazy parents and took Bryce to the pumpkin patch.  It was pretty great!  We went on a day that wasn't too busy.  We also met another Bryce in the corn crib.  They had a huge tractor that they had turned into a slide.  Perfect for our boy!  He is a crazy guy who loves the outside!

Pure happiness!

8th Grade Band

Steven's band was asked to play with the high school tonight and it was so much fun.  Bryce was really into the game and cheering.  The team was doing pretty good.  We didn't stay for the whole game because a little guy was ready to head and Steve looked pretty tired himself.  It was awesome though!  They only played in the pregame.  I think tonight made him undecided about football.  I told him to just wait and see.  He really likes football and the together and respect is greater in football!

Getting some words of wisdom!  HA!

Out in the field!

I believe this is Bryce yelling at him!


The hubs was staring out the backwindow one Saturday and then just disappeared.  I looked outside and he was building a firepit.  Bryce and I were busy making ninja turtles out of playdo.  I love playdo until the colors get mixed.  They always do.  There no stopping it.  Our turtles were pretty darn cute though!

By the time we finished that it was time to go outside and check our the fire.  Steven and dad like to play with fire so we had a great one roaring.   You know how boys are!  We cooked hotdogs and took pictures looking like a crazy person!  It was fun though and we now have a tent that has been up for a week.   Steven is planning to sleep there this weekend but it has got to get down before next week.

Girl's Saturday Morning

A couple of Saturdays ago I was honored to accompany these gorgeous women to David's Bridal to help in the picking of the bridesmaid dresses!  It was so much fun.  I needed some girl time and adult time with some great chics that are down to earth and normal.  Does that make sense?  These are people I click with.  Anyway, we had a great time and since we were in Huntsville we had to have Rosie's.  It is mandatory for me.  It is the best!  So, I refuse to give away the dress so here are the girls looking fabulouso!  

Now, the shoes aren't decided but these shoes are sweet!  They made everyone's legs look amazing and man, just look at them!  I love em!

Erin was not injured on her trip with us.  PROMISE!

My First Real Cake

I finally tried my first real cake! It started out looking like this.

We had to make some cute little safety cones.

But it turned out great! It's not perfect but I still have a ton of fondant to try out for the smoothness.

But all that matters is that the nephew loved it!
