Well, Halloween isn't my favorite and we have kind of gotten away with not doing anything the last couple of years. We just stay at home and hand out candy.
And we were going to skip over it this year but that all changed when Adam brought home costumes at 5:00 on Halloween night. We had a witch and a little monkey. Funny thing is the monkey costume must have been in the wrong package because the package said 2 toddler but the costume was a little small on Ace. But he didn't care!
We decided to go to Derek and Chelsea's and hand out candy at their house. These two had so much fun! They are so funny to watch.
Happy FRIDAY!!! Can you believe that next week is Thanksgiving!!??? I can't believe it but I am ready to spend time with our family.
What have we been up to???
Well, lets see what pics I have on my phone. I so need to start getting my good camera out but these days it is so easy to just take a pic with my phone.
We carved a pumpkin or Austin did...we just watched him. I still need to post about our Halloween. I am hoping to get that done next week before we have Thanksgiving.
The boys got hair cuts a couple of weeks ago. They both needed them bad. These days the only way to get Ace to get his hair cut is to let him watch Micky Mouse on my phone. He ask for it as soon as he sits down.
I have made two recipes I found on Pinterest I need to share. You know if I make something it has to be really easy!
Last week our house got hit with the stomach bug. It was bad! I am hoping we are done with that for a while. This little boy was the first to get it.
This past weekend was a lazy one for us. We stayed at home and I spent my nights watching Lifetime movies with some yummy wine. I haven't done that in a while so it was nice.
Aydrie and Ace helped me make brownies.
I have been looking on Etsy for weeks now at turkey shirts and never did order one so this last weekend I decided I would just make my two turkey's a shirt and I did it all by myself which I am really proud of...usually my mom or sister help me. I did have a little help from one little boy.
We finally made it to Ace's two year old check up. Which reminded my I never posted his two year post or pics...just add it to my list of post.
Have a great weekend!
We have our first Thanksgiving Sunday and I can't wait to eat some yummy food!
Yesterday was our dads birthday and we celebrated with hamburgers and his favorite cake. We all had a good time getting together and celebrating. It was a very special birthday after the little scare we had a couple of months ago. We are all so grateful our dad is with us today.
Of course Ace and Lillie helped him open his gifts. These two had so much fun. We were all saying they are going to love Christmas this year.
After we opened gifts we sang happy birthday and had cake. My dads favorite is carrot cake and he got to have a piece on his birthday and he ate every single bite of it. He did have some help from three little people so we didn't give him to much of a hard time.
Funny story...around our house we talk about upcoming events a lot...like Ace's birthday party. We talked about that for weeks before it actually happened and we talked about all the stuff that we did leading up to his birthday...like hanging his birthday banner. We have been talking about Papa's birthday for a while now and the other night we were wrapping his gifts and Ace got these two pieces of scrap paper and wanted to hang them on my banner for the birthday party. Haha! So, he had to bring the birthday banner to the party and Yaya hung it for him. This is were he decided it should be. He is to funny!
Happy Friday!! This week has gone by fast for me. I was off on Tuesday then again yesterday. Ace came down with a stomach bug on Wednesday and was still not feeling well yesterday so I stayed at home with him and he was just so sad. I hate when my kids are sick. By late yesterday he was feeling a little better so I am hoping we have a good weekend and no one else gets it.
This past weekend the guys went to the deer lease so it was just us girls. We started the weekend out with some goo mexican food and maybe a margarita. ;)
After dinner we ran by Target to look around. I ended up spending $20 and leaving with two sweaters and a pretty scarf. I love Target clearance! I know these are these are the exact same sweater but for $5 I couldn't pass up.
We ended up staying at our moms on Friday and got up Saturday morning and headed to Canton. Well...it was crazy busy and we didn't stay to long. We usually always go on Sundays and they are never that busy but Heather and mom had plans on Sunday so they couldn't go then. I will never go back on a Saturday!
Saturday night we decided to stay at our moms again and had a craft night. With the time change this past weekend we were up at 7:00 am on Sunday!! So by Sunday night we were all so tired.
A bomb threat at my work yesterday caused an unexpected day off for me and it was so nice. I got to work and had to turn back around because they were not letting anyone in my office and at the time wasn't sure if we would be able to return for the day so we got sent home. I ended up getting a call around 11:30 letting me know the office was back opened but since I live an hour away decided I would just take the rest of the day off. I wasn't about to make that hour drive again. So, I spent the day relaxing and catching up on laundry - a never ending battle at my house.
So, today I am once again linking up to the pleaded poppy.

A couple of weekends ago we packed our bags and went with the boys to the deer lease. It just so happened to be the coldest weekend we have had yet. It got down to the upper 30’s at night. It was cold. Good thing we had a heater and lots of layers.
Saturday, Austin got up and went hunting with my dad. They saw a couple of deer but the deer one this trip. Once they got back to camp we had a yummy breakfast and then went on a walk while the boys ran to town to get stuff for the lease.
When the they got back we went with the boys to do boy stuff. Us girls enjoyed the company and the pretty scenery. We spent the day riding around and seeing what all goes on when the boys go to the deer lease. My mom and I decided we would prefer going to her sister’s house, Jayes, over this but it was nice to do something different.
We had to dress in layers to stay warm but by the afternoon the weather was so nice we got to get rid of our big jackets. We walked around and explored a lot. For some reason Ace wanted to be carried everywhere. I think it was too much for him to take in. He did a lot better back at camp.
Aydrie did really well this trip. We brought Dora with us so she felt like she was at home. Saturday night we enjoyed a yummy dinner and then sat around the warm fire.
It was a nice weekend but I was worn out Sunday afternoon when we got home. I am not sure why we really didn’t do anything. I am thinking we will be going back if the guys will let us. ;)
We are sisters who live in a small town near Dallas, Texas. We enjoy our small town roots and love being with our families. An 8 year gap in age doesn't discourage us from being as close as we possibly can. We truly believe that a sister is the best friend you could ever have.
