Picking the Perfect Pumpkin

Friday after picking KL up from preschool, we had lunch with Mother and Langdon and then headed to Isom's to selected the perfect pumpkin and for an apple slushie.

"Now which one should we pick?"
I love this one because we were trying to get both of them looking at me for a cute picture in the wagon. Langdon decided that he had rather kiss and pull Katie Lee's hair.

Now we get a good picture.

I Love Fall Break

This week has been Fall Break for our school system. It could not have come at a better time. I was worn out from the week before that was so busy with school stuff including our long field trip to Montgomery. The trip went great and I hope to post some pictures from that soon. Anyway, I think with such a busy last week and having so many things at night that Katie Lee missed me about as much as I missed her. Saturday she spent most of her day right with me and often reminded me that she had not seen me in two days.

Anyway, our fall break week was wonderful. We had so much fun playing. I was also able to get out all of Katie Lee's clothes for a yard sale on Saturday. Boy has she collected a lot of clothes over that last 4 years. :) Donnie and I also began working on Daniel's room. Pictures to come.

Here she is before church Wednesday looking like such a big girl.
Thursday night we went with Jane to Athens' bonfire for Homecoming week. Last year she cheered right along and this year she was very bashful.
I have LOVED spending the week with her. She is so much fun!!
Saturday we had a yard sale and she had a lemon-aide stand. She talked about it all week. Even though it was about 35 degrees that morning, she was so excited to sell. She sold out by that afternoon.

Sweet Tooth

Yesterday, Katie Lee had to have her "sweet tooth" fixed. She really did pretty good considering she had no idea what was happening to her.

Family Fun

Last Saturday, we had an easy day at home. This was so nice since last week had been extremely busy. We ended our night with a bonfire with roasted marshmallows and s'mores.

We started out by grilling hot dogs.
Ready to roast.
Hayden, Mary Kaitlyn, and Anna came over for the fun.
I think KL ate more chocolate than anything.

Ultra Sound

Wednesday, I had my 4D ultra sound pictures taken of Daniel. The best that we can tell from these, we think that he looks a lot like Katie Lee. I think he may be a typical boy. He wanted his face covered the entire time with his hands. :)

Happy Birthday Donnie

We recently celebrated Donnie's 35th birthday. I cooked his favorites and we enjoyed a fun night with our family. He also got a new recliner which he has wanted for a long time now. I hope that he had a wonderful birthday and that he will have many many more.

Guess Who Is 40!!!

Last Saturday night, we celebrated my cousin's, Scott, 40th birthday. We had a great party. Stephanie surprised him with a great video of his life. We also had yummy food. I hope that he has many more wonderful birthdays.

Whatever works....

For the last several weeks, I have had the worst leg cramps and restless legs at night. It seems that the more I grow and the more I am on my feet at work, the worse it gets. A week or so ago, I was talking to some ladies about it and one (Jackie) told me to sleep with a bar of soap.
SOUNDS CRAZY!!! She told me the story about how she heard about it and how it worked for her. I WAS IN PAIN AND WILLING TO TRY ANYTHING!!!!. Donnie thought this was the most absurd thing ever! He completely laughed at me that first night when I put that bar of soap in bed with us. Well, here it is a little over a week and I have not had nearly the leg cramps that I was having. I have had the beginnings of two but I place my foot on the bar and it goes away. CRAZY, I KNOW, BUT IF IT WORKS AND HELPS ME TO SLEEP BETTER I WILL KEEP USING IT!!

Time for a Tea Party

Saturday, we participated in Jessica's Tea Party. This was our 3rd year for this. Kathryn designed another beautiful table. This year her theme was Alice in Wonderland. She amazes me with all the attention to detail that she brings to the table. She does not leave a thing out.

Sadly I did not get a picture of the table before we got our food, but trust me it was lovely.

Katie Lee ready with her fancy hat.
She skipped most of the food and went for dessert.
She and Kaylee decorating their cookie.
These three little ones loved playing together.

H is for Hat

This week Katie Lee's class learned about the letter H. Friday they had hat day. She was super excited especially since I got her a new hat. (She does not own a hat until now.) She was all smiles getting ready Friday morning with her cute hat.

Brown Bear Brown Bear

Tuesday night Katie Lee and I went to the public library for a Brown Bear Brown Bear Party. They created their own brown bear book, read stories, and had a snack. She loved it.

When we walked in, she spotted Addie Mae. They were very excited to see each other.
