Fall Fever

Come on, FALL!!  I am ready for some cooler weather and I think it is coming this week! Please!  We've been enjoying having Neil has been so nice to have him home from Tulsa.  I don't want him to go back.  

We went to the Revel which is one of my favorite fall things to do.  It never disappoints.  Here are a few things we've been doing...

After our fall family gathering at Dianne's, Bennett came home and made a "No Girls Allowed" sign.  I think he saw Cousin Cody's sign and thought he needed one too!

This beauty had her 6 month pictures made (at 5 months) and I can't wait to see them!  This was just a sneak peek.

Bennett's bee sting turned into this mass of redness a week later.  He even called us from school to let us know it hurt. Neil spoke to him on the phone and said if he came home then he wouldn't get to play because when we are sick we have to stay in bed.  He figured he was OK to stay at school.  This past Friday he called us to tell us he couldn't hear out of his right ear.  Amy went and checked on him and he was upset.  Neil got to the school and whispered "booger pancakes" in his ear and he started laughing!  He said "oh, maybe it's my other ear!" hahahaha! 

Bennett exercised his artist skills ON THE BACK OF MY SEAT!

Bennett got to go to the Tech game and take picture with Champ.  Nana said he cheered for the bulldogs the entire game.  He also ate popcorn, hotdogs, candy, and whatever else he could get his hands on!

We had an adult night costume party where we left SK with a non-family sitter for the first time.  She did great and so did I!

Happy 24th, Chris!

We love grocery shopping at the mini Brookshire's.

That's my boy!

Sister's first Revel experience.

A very important client got to attend work with us on Thursday,  The power went out at Sarah Kathryn's school so Neil and I had to take turns keeping her at work.  This girl stayed in her carseat for a total of 5 minutes at each office.  It ain't easy working with an infant!

This big boy read a whole book on 10/9/14.  Proud mama!

Henry had to much fun at Mary Ellen's birthday party.

We enjoyed time with our baby girl while the boys went to Ruston for time with Nana and Granddad.

Fall get-together

I was so glad when Dianne decided to have everyone over for fajitas and fellowship.  Aunt Cloie's son and daughter-in-law were in town so that is always reason to get together.  Aunt Cloie, my grandmother's youngest sister, is looking fabulous these days!

Henry was obviously not in the mood for pictures

Pumpkin Pickin' 2014

Fall is one of my favorites.  I love the cooler weather, everything pumpkin, the fall colors, and fall clothes.  It is nice to finally be able to go outside without being drenched in sweat in 2 seconds.  This is my favorite weather!!!  Pops takes the kids to pick out pumpkins every year at Akin's.  It is one of our favorite fall traditions. 2013    2012   2011  I had plans for them to all wear matching fall clothes, but we went right after school and it was hot and began to rain so I scratched it!

They love getting a wagon and picking out the perfect pumpkins.  It is so much fun!  I love watching the boys run around checking out the best pumpkins.  Henry would just throw any random pumpkin on the wagon not gently at all.  Bennett was more selective and looked at each pumpkin.

Muscle man!



Sarah Kathryn

Thanks, Pops!  We had so much fun!

Days of our lives

I had to pick up this angel from school because he felt bad.

He hasn't fallen asleep on my in ages...I loved it, but hated that he was sick!

Super Swinging!

Oh, Henry and his underwear antics...I've never seen so many wrong ways to put on undies!

Teddy Bear Picnic-Henry

We had such a great time at Henry's teddy bear picnic.  I am so glad that it was Henry's snack week so I could do something special!  Mrs. Rose told me they usually have honey sandwiches so I made teddy bear shaped honey sandwiches, teddy bear trail mix, and gummy bears!  They kids loved bringing their bears to the table and they LOVED the gummy bears.

I loved these little picnic bags...I ran them right through the printer.  I didn't even know it would work!

Sweet thang,

Henry and the only bear we could find.  I tossed all the others before we moved.

Such a cute little class!

Sarah Kathryn is 5 months old!

Our beautiful girl is already 5 months old!  How on earth?  Time flies when you're having fun and even when you're exhausted!

Doctor appointment:  none this month

Clothes: You wear size 2 diapers and I have a feeling we are about to be in a 3.  You are wearing mostly 6-9 month clothes.  I got to put you in a couple long bubbles...they are my absolute favorite.  You just look so cute in anything, though.

Eating: You eat a 5 ounce bottle every three hours.  You are doing well on your new formula.  We will start food at 6 months. Dr. C said they are wanting people to wait until 6 months now...fine by me.  Baby food is not my favorite thing.

Sleeping:  No more swaddling.  In fact, after I wrote the 4 month post I stopped swaddling you.  Girl, you need to sleep!  You don't nap much AT ALL.  Lakasha said you might sleep 20 minutes a morning at school.  At home, you like to know what is going on all the time.  Last night was the first night I did not get up to feed you.  The past 2 nights I've fed you and you only took about 2 ounces.  So, you don't even need to eat!  You just get up.  I turned off the monitor last night and you were just fine and dandy this morning.  You sleep with both arms up above your head and always have.  That's how the boys sleep, too.

Likes: being held, car seat, riding in the car, riding in the stroller, eating, the paci (sometimes), baths, your brothers, watching people, smiling, knowing what is going on at all times, Mommy, being on y our stomach for a little bit, and laughing

Dislikes: having something go over your head (clothes), being strapped in the carseat, being woken up by a loud noise (brother), being disturbed/interrupted while eating has to be your most hated can't stand having the bottle removed while you are eating, and being on your stomach for more than a little bit.

News this month: You are busy!  You do not lie still at all.  You roll and move around on the floor and in the bed.  You are still our sweet baby girl that we love so much!!!
