Halloween Preview

A little Halloween preview....we had our neighborhood party this weekend and the kids got a chance to put on their costumes before Halloween. Thank goodness because Ashton has been asking everyday if it is Trick or Treat day. This year Ashton decided he wanted to be Superman and I decided Reese would be non other than....a Reese's Candy Bar. Thank you Kathy for making the cutest costume out of a pillow! We had a blast and after the pony rides and petting zoo both kids enjoyed snow cones and playing at the park. We can't wait for tomorrow night!

Field Trip

Today was a great day. I took the day off from work to spend it with Ashton and his class for their first field trip. It was at the Oil Ranch, and yes, we were just there less than a week ago but we actually did different stuff for the most part. Ashton had a great time and it was a perfect weather day to be out in. I had a great time getting to know some of the other mom's and getting to know Ashton's teachers better. He LOVES going to school and had so much fun today.

Ashton and his best friend Brendan. They aren't in the same class on Tuesday/Thursday but still get to see each other every MWF.

See ya next time folks!

Seven Years....and still going strong. Hard to believe it has been SEVEN years since we said "I Do" to each other. Casey, I love you more each day, if that is even possible. Life is an unbelievable ride that no one can prepare you for. I am so happy to have my best friend with me along the way for all the ups and downs. You still make me laugh and smile more than anyone else can. And to top it off you gave me this:

The two most precious children that are truly the best parts of both you and me. I love you and look forward to 50, 60, 70 more years together! Happy Anniversary!

King of King's Festival

On Thursday at Ashton's school they got to attend the "King of King's Festival." The kids could dress up as princes, knights or princess' and then they got to walked through different booths and participate in various activities. Casey and I surprised Ashton at school when it was his class' turn to go through the festival. His class was adorable all dressed up and they had a great time.

Three new posts

Check them out below!

Fall Fun

Looking forward to Halloween with these two: (My mom always does an "October 1st" present and who am I to stop the tradition, so skeleton pajamas that glow in the dark was this year's gift)

And then looking forward to Christmas with these two:

Thank you Mark and Jac for asking me to watch over your babies! I am so excited and honored!

Magic Noodles

I found these "Magic Noodles" at Hobby Lobby and they are awesome! If you are looking for a mess free, inexpensive, indoor, fun activity, check these out. All you need is a damp sponge or papertowel. You dab on end of the noodle on the sponge and stick it to another noodle, and then you can start letting your imagination run wild! Warning: probably need to be 2 1/2 or older as Reese prefers to just rip apart Ashton's creations. The box is huge and they are like $6 (before your 40% coupon if you have one!) Great Christmas gift if you want an idea!

First Haircut

Friday I took the kids to get haircuts, the first for Reese and just one of many for Ashton. Ashton is at the point now where he really needs to have his cut every four weeks. Ugh!! But, it is totally worth it because he looks adorable each time. Reese's hair has really grown in the last few months and while it needed a trim, as you can see from the before picture below, Jenny, our hairdresser said just to leave it at that, a trim. No bangs or bob cut this time, just enough to even things out. Soon enough she will need a really "big girl" haircut, but I can wait longer for that. Even though it was just a trim, she did awesome. After she saw Ashton, the pro, get his done, she was ready to sit there and have her turn. She just kept trying to look back to see what exactly Jenny was doing.


Ashton loves the attention and the "pampering"

When he asks to do his hair he says he needs spray AND gel...Jenny said he was a kid after her own heart!


The first cut:

Pretty happy

The best after shot we could get

Then while I was getting my hair cut, Ashton decided it would be good if he finished up Reese's hair

That's all folks!
