First Day(s) of School 2012

Mrs. M @ KES

 Always have to have SILLY pictures!

 Miss L @ LB Preschool

Yeah for a new school year!! I cannot believe I have a SECOND grader!! I feel soo old, but here she is all ready to start a new year! Tate missed the deadline by 15 days so he has one more year of preschool and then it is off to Kindergarten! Clay gave them a blessing the night before and that was really special. I am so grateful for my husband and all he does for our family. Augie and I just enjoy our time together while Tate & Brittley are at school. I am hoping to start working out during that time, but since it has started we have been running errands those days...we will see what happens though! Happy School Year you two!

3 Months Old!!

 Can you believe it??!! Three months old already!! Something that I have to add to the list is that he is so close to laughing, but it is hilarious to hear him try because he usually starts coughing. Isn't it funny to think about having a hard time laughing?? To try and teach yourself how to laugh when it seems so natural?? I love this little guy and the joy he brings into our lives!!

TF County Fair 2012

My Sweet Little Augie's first time at the TF County Fair!! Love this little guy and sweet smile! 
The kids had lots of fun! We went Friday, August, 31, 2012. It was the best thing to do as a family right before school started again. We ate lots of yummy food..seriously every time I turned around Clay had another treat lol, but I had monkey bread for the first time and oh it was sooo good. We also had peaches and ice cream from Jenk's stand and that is always so good. What's a county fair without greasy, fattening food???

This was the first year EVER that we let our kids go on rides. It is so crazy expensive! I bought 20 tickets and they got to go on 3 rides, that's right 3! I cannot believe how much people shell out for this stuff, but my kids were excited about the 3 rides they did get to go on. First off they went down the GIANT slide; that was always one of my favorites too.

Brittley HAD to go on the Ferris Wheel, she asked before we even left our house. They had lots of fun going with their dad!!

Tate went on these bullets and Brittley went on the Merry-go-Round. Tate got the better end of the deal because there was only him and these two girls on this ride. No one else was in line so the guy let them go for forever...Brittley came over and was like, "I should have went on this ride." Funny kids. They are cheap, crappy rides, but the kids had a GREAT time!

Then we ended our night in the petting zoo! The kids liked it and Brittley even got to milk a cow!! Thanks for the fun family night TF County Fair...we will see you next year!

Cousin Day 2012

 Before I get to cousin day I had to add this stinking cute picture of Augie. Aunt Tina sent these cute hooded towels and look how cute he is in it!! This big smile shows how big those cheekers are once again!! Love my little man!
 Every summer we get the cousins together (more than once) but this is always the tradition at the end of the take a group photo. Sometimes there are lots of cousins and sometimes there are only a few. But there has never been ALL the cousins all at once. Someday I hope it happens, not only for my sake but my mother-in-laws. I mean it has been probable 10+ years since she has had ALL of her kids & spouses with her at the same time, isn't that crazy?? Well anyways the kids had a great time playing together and us mothers love being with one another and just talking. The kids are all growing soo fast and Leejean, Shelly, and I are all adding to the next generation. I mean we were doing pretty good since Mayzee is the next cousin up and she will be 3 in February. I am so grateful for marrying into such a large family with so many cousins for my children to have because nothing is better than having family to play with!!
 Getting the kids to take a picture is getting harder even though it should be easier since they are getting older, but the funny face photos always works!!

 Mayzee makes me laugh all the time, she is just such a character and here she is in her hat. Later during the day when she was getting tired she lifted a baby doll stroller over her head while screaming, "Mom HELP me!!" Then the stroller is broken so it veers to the left whenever someone tries to push it so all of a sudden we hear her screaming. We look over it is just her and the stroller; she was screaming because it was not working right lol She is so funny, I just being love being around her. 
A few of the bike riders! I cannot believe how old all of these kids are getting! It makes it pretty nice for us mommas and Grandma because we do not have to chase them around so much. As long as no one is crying or screaming we know they are good. :) 
We LOVE cousin Day!
