Ally is such a girlie girl
And Ryan is all boy!
Together they are a great team!
Kacey taught me the fast and easy way to gut a pumpkin-still pretty gross!
And drumroll please....Uncle Frank! He is the inspiration for the face:-) Uncle Josh sometimes goes by his pseudonym Uncle Frank so the kids named our pumpkin after him.
And scary punkin. :-~
Ryan loved running around and seeing all the pumpkins. At first he wanted a $40 one, but we settled for this $5 version. We also tried a group shot. Wyatt wins the prize here for the best consistent smile!
These two were not looking at the camera no matter what but I had to show off their precious outfits. So cute!
I guess we have to actually carve one this year. Stay tuned for what I can guess will be an AMAZING jack-o-lantern.
This weekend we drove to the LBK. I love going to Lubbock and visiting my sweet Nana, stopping by Texas Tech campus, tailgating, the football game, cooler weather, and fun times with my family. This year Ally and I were fortunate to ride up with the Warrens and these two cuties had a blast in the car. Apparently all you need is a watch and a pair of sunglasses for hours of entertainment.
After lunch they were out. Lila and Ally both had their puppy and blanket the whole way.
Nana has some great toys at her house. Ally especially loved the piano, matador, and mini trampoline. Thank you Nana for hosting us this weekend!
Around 9:30 my little man made it. It is so different this year having to factor in Friday school. I have to remind myself constantly that Ryan can't leave town until 3:30. He rode up with Honey and GP and Mark followed soon after. Nana was very happy to see her oldest great-grandchild.
The next day was Game day and my crazy brother-in-laws put on a great pre-game tailgate. Mark and the boys played a mean game of red-neck golf and Ryan and III were fascinated by the smoker. (click on this pic to see the pig they cooked...)
The Will Rogers statue is wrapped in Red every game day and the kids thought it was way cool.
Some future RAIDERS! I remember taking pictures like this growing up and I cannot believe that now I have children taking the same shot. Amazing.
We have a few running jokes of comments made during TTU games. Mom has the famous,"Do something Spectacular Tech!" and Dad's, "We were there!" and I think a new phrase can be added to this list. "For 33 years I have been cheering on the Raiders, I love' em!"-he he. (I realize that probaby doesn't sound funny to anyone other than my sista Caryn.)
A little pretend football on campus
These two are very funny when they're together. Constant smiles.
If only Tech had won it would have been the perfect weekend. Thanks again Nana, we love you very much and we can't wait to see you again soon.
I can copy a great idea like noone else! Have a great weekend.
After much anticipation I have finally been able to bust out my tracksuits. I love wearing these and have them in many colors. I wish I didn't love them like I do but they make a girl happy! I know that they are basically PJ's but, on a chilly morning running errands this is my outfit of choice. Today I found that we have a mini track suit lover living in our house. Ahh Ally girl, you are rockin' this look!
She's a mess. But I couldn't love her more.
Ally loves her brother SO much. Most evenings she follows him around trying to mimic everything he does. On this particular night Ryan had two little followers!
It is awesome to watch Ryan with his cousin Lila. He adores her and is always making sure she's OK and happy. Complete. Sweetness.
Ally also loves her cousin and I know she likes being in charge:-).
This little face melts Aunt Gigi's heart!
Isn't she a cute lil' punkin?
Some big boy teeth
And my little comedian, while she ate her dinner. Ally girl, you crack me up!
Thank you Chick-fil-a for making life a little easier on Tuesdays. :-)
