Halloween Weekend

Last weekend was Halloween weekend and due to large amounts of rain everything got moved around.  We ended up trick or treating on the 30th.  It actually made for a great and relaxing weekend!

Thursday after school we went to Nannoh's to show her their costumes.  I love this picture of Sam.  He literally had his mouth open listening to her tell of how she shot a possum through a hole because it was after her chicken and eggs, as well as a few other stories of her good aim.

Friday, Sam had his party at school.  I was lazy crafty--meaning super easy crafts.  He didn't care if I spent an hour on them or 5--he was happy to bring fun food to school.

I love this Star Wars picture that the director of the preschool texted me!

A waitress, Han Solo, and Princess Leia

and a pig that wasn't too sure she was into being a pig...

we trick or treated with the Jordans, as usual.

Uncle Brad always dresses up, but this year G and I decided we would both be pumpkins.

It rained most of Saturday which made for a great movie watching and book reading kind of day.  We decided to just carve one pumpkin this year.

Later in the afternoon it stopped raining so these two did some puddle jumping.

We ended our lazy day with pumpkin spice pancakes.

Back to School--4,2,PreK

Yes...I know that school started 11 weeks ago...

We did manage to have our Back to School night dinner--an even on the 1st night of school!

We got pictures of the 1st day without breaking an arm this year! So, we called that a success!  

SB was very excited to have Mrs. Burt.  Zeb had Mrs. Burt as a second grader, so she thinks that is super cool!  We are hoping that Honey runs across a picture of Mrs. Burt and Zeb in 2nd grade.

Leigh has Mrs. Tidwell this year.

Since the first day of school is a 1/2 day, we squeezed  in a tea party at Friends. (everything was a little off this year because my grandmother died right before school started...)

This big guy turned 5 in July so he is doing kindergarten at Covenant and then will do kindergarten at FPDS next year.  We are calling it PreK this year--and he loves it!

His sweet teacher is Mrs. Brown.

Geyser Falls

We spent a fun day at Geyser Falls about 2 weeks before school started.  It was packed!  We had a great time, but I think next year we will head back to Collins.  It's a little more our speed.

We stopped at Wal-Mart in Carthage to buy a case of Pepsi--$5 off per person with a can!  Worth the $4 I paid for 12.

These two boys are quite a pair.

Seriously this conversation went like this....
I don't like mayonnaise, do you?
No, it's yuck.

I think Rebecca and I are teaching them well.

Zeb said he was surprised I didn't get shot taking this picture.  His back said "pistol proof".  HA!

Last week of summer...

My sweet, sweet grandmother died the last week of summer, so needless to say we didn't end summer how I had planned!

Zeb took the kids to Chick fil A in the hospital so I could visit my grandmother. While they were eating,  I got this picture!  Can't believe my little guy is losing teeth!  He actually lost his second one last week--it wasn't near ready, but he thought it was so he pulled it at school.  He told me he had to twist a lot and pull hard! He got very upset when I suggested that it might have been difficult to get out because it wasn't quite ready!

I have no idea what they were watching...but I love this...

Sam brought this home from Sunday School one Sunday.  At first I thought it was two people inside a pig.  I'm glad I asked because that is the two of us inside the van cleaning it out!  And that week he did help me clean the van!

Emily came from Hattiesburg and met us and the Goldmans at the Jump Palace.  I seriously think mine can never tire of jumping.

Then we had lunch at Newks.

Leigh loves babies!!

The kids all picked what they wanted to cook for dinner and then went to the farmer's market to buy what they needed.  Sam decided to make a tomato salad.

Leigh sauteed some corn.

Sara Beth roasted broccoli.  And they all helped with the chicken.

It was delicious!

When Marshall came over wearing his Captain America shirt, Sam had to go find his!

Summer Picture Dump

Maybe if I do 2 or 3 summer picture dumps I can get caught up enough to feel like I'm not behind!  I need to stay up to date because this is my scrapbook--also known as my memory!  

Emily and Sara Beth had a great time at camp this summer.   

Free Chicken Day was while Sara Beth was at camp...

Mrs. Lauren and Marshall took them while I worked.  This picture makes me laugh...Marshall looks miserable and Sam's shirt--aghhhh!

I had a Twin Lakes board meeting the week Sara Beth was at camp so I was able to steal a picture and a hug while she was gone for the week!

We spent lots of hot afternoons hanging out at the children's museum.

love what Leigh wrote

Leigh and Millie Ruth after MR had fun playing with Leigh's hair.

Sam got a fun trip to Tupelo to hang out with the boys!

Salt block shrimp is the best!  It is definitely a favorite around here.

This makes me laugh--Sara and I both had the polish come off our 4th toes! Actually my whole toe nail came off!

SB got her braces off!  We were so excited!  She had the hardest time with braces--her poor cheeks would have so many ulcers and then would get infected and then grow around her wire.  And even almost 3 months after getting them off she still has marks on her tongue.

SB and a few of her friends had a fun book club that met a couple of times!
