Fall Fun

 Akin's, our favorite locally owned nursery, has a sweet deal going on for $5!  Kids can decorate a pot, pick out their flower, and plant it.  My dad told me about it and I knew we couldn't miss it.  We went yesterday after school/work/therapy and the boys just loved it.  Pops met us so he could help.

Henry said "Look Pops!" after he put his stickers on.  He was really proud!

The best part...the dirt!

Love it!!!  

Bennett did ask if he could pick one of his flowers this morning to take to his teacher.  Thoughtful boy!


Last week I received a few texts and e-mails about a car crashing into the Lewis Boutique in Ruston.  The man who crashed had a heart attack and passed away.  Thankfully, no one else was hurt.

Rebecca's 30th!

We had a totally fabulous 30th birthday weekend for Rebecca!  We went to Dallas market, Blaine's for fancy hair, and then to dinner at Dish.

The chef sent out a salted caramel pudding that was delish!

We both did not enjoy our hair.
After our Dallas "business trip," we headed straight to Ruston for the family birthday dinner.  Virginia, Robbie, Cameron, and Mary Claire are moving back to Ruston to they were in town house hunting.  Looks like they'll be your neighbors, Merideth!

We hosted a pumpkin carving/decorating party at our house on Sunday.  I LOVE all things fall and Halloween so of course, I love this party.  We had the SS class over for the afternoon.

Henry was loving the stickers and paint.

BREW 2013

 Neil got us tickets to Brew, Shreveport's beer festival.  It was a total blast for me since I am pregnant and had to drink water.  I was really fine because I don't have to drink to have fun!  I liked drinking my water out of the fancy beer glass, though.  The weather was FABULOUS and we enjoyed time with friends all day.  Since Red River Brewing is launching their new brewery this Thursday...we thought we'd better go out and support them!  We are so excited for them!

Dad let us take his car because he needed mine to be able to pick up Henry.  He was excited to spend time with him.  They had Chick-Fil-A and Henry ate 6 nuggets and fries!

Fall Festival

Bennett's school has the best fall fest around!  It is tons of fun and raises lots of money for the school. I love that the fall fest has food so we don't have to worry about cooking or messy up the kitchen! :)  Although we had a plan in place weeks ago, I was vetoed and we didn't enjoy dinner there.  Maybe next year when Henry is in K-3!

They have a bake sale and they ask for donations.  I couldn't wait to make these Frankenstein twinkies that my favorite blogger makes.  She only makes desserts and I LOVE that!  These things were an undertaking but so fun to make!  I even had people come up to me at the fest telling me how cute they were!  Megan even sent me a text of Addison holding hers!

Each class enters pumpkins into the pumpkin contest.  Bennett's class had the cutest ones!!  They had a pumpkin banana split!  He was proud!

Bennett stayed at this water balloon shooter.  This totally paid for his arm band.  He LOVED this!

We headed to the gym for games and fun.

Someone sent Bennett to jail.  No idea who!

He loved making the sand art necklace.

Bennett loves Loralei!  He gets a little nervous around her.

Henry finally arrived!  Neil sort of forgot to pick him up.  Oh well, he made it and had so much fun!
He had his face...

AND hair painted!

Loved it.

He slid down the HUGE slide.

We were excited that both Nana and Gammy came.  Pops even stopped by for a minute.

Gammy, her boys, and John John

The train is a favorite!  Henry rode it 3 times and never had to get off!

They rode ponies!  Henry was thrilled!

We said "say hi Dumplin!"  He said "hi dumpin!"

Bennett's monkey hand print

What!???  a picture of me and my boys!!?? LOVE THIS!

We are thankful that Nana was able to take Bennett back with her to Ruston.  He was out of school today and we had his fall conference.  Thank goodness for Grandparents!
