Hi there! I know that it has been two weeks since my last post..... sorry.  We haven't slowed down at all.  I don't think I have barely had time to even check my emails.  We are still here and doing well :)  Not to bore you with everything that we have had going on... I will just share a few  lot of pictures. 

Sleeping Babies


E-Fest Concert

(Lots of fun with some of our students from church, I can't believe I didn't get any pictures of them!)

My Heart :)

She is dressed up for pictures for the newspaper... We have got to work on her "lady likeness."

Our Typical Monday Morning

Terrible picture but we took him to eat at Papitos in Oxford.

White Dresses and Marshmallows

I am having to remind myself that God made Mondays too because today has not been great.  Nothing bad in particular just not great.  Anyway, since I last posted... I have great news!  Anna Claire was chosen to be a flower girl in the her school's homecoming!  I know that is small news to some people, but I am soo excited!  This is why I wanted to have a girl in the first place!  So, of course I called my mama to help me find a dress!  And here is what we found:

I am well aware she is rotten :)  And here is one that we just tried on "just because."
I am loving her new "cheese." 
I took the kiddos to Brookhaven Friday night to spend the night with my parents, and I spent the night with my sister.  I had some coupons from Bath and Body Works so of course we went and did a little shopping.

I seriously LOVE these fragrances, Apple Crumble and Leaves! 
These two were a pleasant surprise, Marshmallow Fireside and Mint Chocolate.  I wanted to eat my house!
Anna Claire is into candy corn this year, and I found the CUTEST candy holders for them!
It was such a beautiful day Saturday!!!  We played outside and roasted hot dogs and marshmallows ( I think my new candle got me in the mood ).
I got the cutest video of my two kiddos!  These are the moments that I am so glad that I have two!
Oh!  I almost forgot!  We are doing Supper on Wednesday night at the church to raise money for the youth's trip to Gatlinburg in December.  It was such a success!  Pray that we continue to do well with these suppers and other fund raisers that we are doing! 
Have a happy week! 
(Seriously?  How cute are these?!)

No Labor Weekend!

No Labor weekend meant just that... No Labor at all!!  I have the picture to prove it!

Yes that is Michael located under about two weeks worth of laundry that I FINALLY got around to folding.  We didn't do anything productive this weekend.  I we needed that.  Friday night, we met my cousins for supper and ice cream.  Yes, we went to Yogn Frut again :)
We went to Oxford early Saturday morning for the Ole Miss game.  I am not much of a football fan, but I did enjoy the atmosphere.  I think its the season of Fall that is in the air at football games.  Everyone seems happy even if you don't win.  My kids liked it too :)
We had a great time!  We were definitely tired when we got home Saturday night (closer to Sunday morning).
I am going a little out of order here but I took Paxton to his two week check up Friday and I am happy to report that he has PRETTY EARS!  He even woke up with a cold that morning and he had a runny nose!  A RUNNY NOSE!  I don't think I have ever been excited about a runny nose before.  Since its not settling in his ears, its coming out through his nose ( I know that is gross haha).
Anna Claire had her back to school night last Monday.  I have really enjoyed her being at her new school. She loves her teachers and has made lots of new friends.  I didn't take very good pictures because she wouldn't stand still long enough :)
She loves the bleachers.  What kid doesn't?  I bet Michael and I told her to sit down about 50 times that night.
Her classroom.  I wanted her to sit in her seat to get a picture, but that was not happening. 
And we can't forget little brother who came to big sister's back to school night. 
This stillness didn't last long...
He had his daddy walking back and forth!
This past week I have been doing a little internet searching on some Christmas presents.  I am loving Melissa and Doug.  These items in particular:
I would get Pax the green one!  They look so much fun for spend the nights with grandparents!
And finally:
I hope everyone has a GREAT week!  We are enjoying some awesome weather here!
