Pumpkin Patch

There is just something about pumpkin patches that makes it feel like fall!:)
All the pumpkins, the hay and the atmosphere - Love it!

One of my favorite times of the year!

This year Liz made the girls matching shirts and well it was time to hit the Rockwall pumpkin patch for some cute pictures of our little ones.

They were so cute! They really thought they could pick up the "big" pumpkins AND
in there attempt they only caused other pumpkins to begin to roll off the pallet, Ha!

It was a super wendy day which meant hair flying everywhere.
With 4 kids and 2 being boys ... this was the best picture I could get, Ha!
They are all so cute - Love them!

1st pumpkin patch

This is right before she all of a sudden became terrified of the pumpkin patch.

Isn't this picture just priceless?!?!
Poor baby:( - I LOVE how they are all looking at her!

Getting a hug from big bother as he's telling her "it's okay, don't cry Honour"

Best Buds!

Maybe next year she will join in on the fun:) - this year she wouldn't stop crying or let go of my leg, Ha!

Slade & Gavin:)

The Red Wagon

My mom bought the red wagon for Slade a while back and he has enjoyed riding in it so much!
His favorite trip is going to feed the ducks & Thursday night Honour got to take part in it for the first time!:)

At first she wasn't to sure about it. Slade was trying to assure her that everything was fine and that they were going to feed the ducks. I mean why wouldn't you be happy about that, Ha!

I knew once the rolling started there would be no looking back...

This was her after Aunt Summer rolled them around to the front of the house.
See that face - all fear gone & loving it!:)

Nothing melts my heart more than those 2 kids!
Oh, how I love them so much!

Waving bye-bye with excitement all over her face!

Taking off!
I love how she is holding on to the sides ... so cute!:)
Makes me realize how big she is getting!

This picture cracks me up!
See how Slade is holding up the bread?
He would not put it down.
I guess he thought Honour would get it and he was probably right!:)

10 months

Is it true?!?!
Will you be 10 mo. tomorrow?

This past month you have learned so many new things and continue to bring much fun & laughter to our family. Also, the bond between you and Slade has gotten so much sweeter!
I love it:)

This morning I thought we would go out and take some pictures and although you were more interested in eating the dirt & playing with sticks. I did manage to get a few shots!

One of the many things I LOVE about you is how you are already such a little "tomboy" but yet such a little girl!:)

Star Wars

I guess when you have an older brother you just don't have a choice...

It doesn't matter what kind of toy's I buy Honour she always leaves them behind and ends up playing with Slade's.


Seems to be the happening thing around our family!
AND from the beginning she was a fan:)

Sporting her interest at 6 mo.!:)

You should see her when Slade starts pulling all his Star Wars stuff out.
She gets super excited and starts bouncing and clapping her hands!
It's really cute!

Once he gets everything out she has no problem getting to where he is and grabbing what she wants!

The "Turbo Tank" seems to be her favorite!
I think she likes all the different gadgets.

The guys also make great chew toy's which doesn't always settle that well with Slade!

My little girl playing with Star Wars stuff!:)
Whatever makes for a good morning ... right?!?!

Monday laugh!

So, about a week ago I walk into Honour's room after nap time and find this...

Diaper off, wet bed!

AND she's done it once more!
Made me laugh ... Slade NEVER did this.
She now goes to bed with her diaper covered, Ha!

Just in case anyone needed a good laugh!
Happy Monday!:)

Me, YES!

I still can't believe it, HA

I would have never thought this would be something I would become so addicted to!:)
BUT after hearing & seeing all the cute stuff my friends would make I thought why not give it a try! Although, I'm not even close to where I would like to be I have enjoyed the few things I've made!

So, I thought I would share a few of my accomplishments!:)

I found this idea off etsy.
It would have been better on a onesie or t-shirt because you can't really see the sewing attaching them all together giving it the necklace look ... but still cute!:)

Being the Cowboy fans we are I HAD to make this & of course Jeff loved it!

My first sewing job as gifts...
Jeff's cousin has 2 girls and they had their birthday parties together last Saturday.
I made these shirts for them and they were a big hit.
Everyone was asking where I got them and it felt so good to say,
"I made them"!:)

Thanks Amber & Liz for being my inspiration!

Honour, 8 months

New & big things are starting to happen in your life now...

You have gone from being this little baby that I could hold and cuddle to being very active!
The crawling hasn't officially started yet but you have no problem getting where and what you want by turning and scooting!

We have also been experiencing all the fun that comes with "separation issues",
for some reason you think my days should only consist of holding and caring for you!:)

I do LOVE the personalty that you have come to develop BUT it does remind me daily that you are definitely a little girl, Ha!

I just love a sleeping baby ... so sweet!
You still love your sleep and are such a great sleeper!
At times when you are fine but just wanting to be held and crying I put you in your bed which I don't think gets the point across because you just go right to sleep.
It's not punishment for you, Ha!

You've seen your first fireworks show and not a surprise you LOVED it!:)
God knew what He was doing when He gave you your personalty!
He knew just what you would need with an older brother.
You have no problems hanging with him...
That night made me realize you ARE a little "FIRECRACKER":)

Buggy time!
So long carrier...
You just love sitting up and looking around at everything.
Your brother has also enjoyed this very much! I think he feels like you are more like him!:)

Yep, you have entered the world of "cheerios"
You eat them like a pro:)
It sure does make dinner time more enjoyable for you!
No more sitting in your empty highchair watching all of us eat.
You can now munch away with us!

8 months!
Look at you - such a big girl!

Sand & Water

To boys there is just nothing better!

During servolution week we had the opportunity to hang with Gavin and the boys had so much fun as they always do!

I absolutely LOVE being a mommy to a boy! It brings so much adventure in a whole different way:)

They thought it was so funny to lay down and roll around in the sand.
Slade enjoys doing anything that gets him all dirty, ALL boy!:)

...and they actually both looked at me - those are hard to come by, ha!

See what I mean! O'well they had a great time and that makes me happy!:)

Why is it that just playing in the sand isn't enough, ha!
Obviously, it's more fun if your throwing it, pouring it on your friend, or throwing it out of the sand box! :)

Slade managed to get himself covered from head to toe!
Which meant water time before going back in the house ...

Getting rinsed off!

This was just as much fun as playing in the sand!
They were having so much fun running around and coming back for more.
"again" - that's what they kept saying:)

So, sand & water ... makes for a great summer day with friends and you can tell by their faces they enjoyed every minute of it!

You are sitting up great, smiling ALL the time and
just this past week you have started baby talk . It is super cute!
You CAN say "da-da" and you get so excited!:)

You LOVE playing with your brother and his toys and
for some reason his toys are much cooler than yours!:)

You two are so cute together ... and Slade is so sweet to you and always makes sure
you don't get anything that would hurt you, Makes me smile!

You tried and tried to get in that bucket, ha!

Yep, you have an older brother!

You are such a good and easy baby!
You were actually sitting up playing and happen to fall back on that pillow!
You just went with it, ha!

This is your "best friend" Emory!
Y'all get so excited when you see each other!
It's really cute!

You LOVE your stroller which makes me happy!:)

Water baby...
That's you!:)
You love your baths and any time you can just get some play time!
You LOVE to splash the water so that it gets all
over your face ... it's so funny!

You are growing way to fast but I love the age that you are at right now!
You are so much fun and continue to add many smiles and laughs
to our family!

We love you Honour Grace!
