We broke out Daddy’s birthday gift for church one night.

One proud daddy.


Backyard Fun

Backyard Fun

Oh the Arkansas weather has allowed us some outside fun this fall. It was in the 60s one afternoon and I wanted to grill for dinner. So we went and got some toys out of the barn.

I bought these when I was pregnant at the Growing Kids Sale, and she LOVED having her own playground.

This slide is so tiny, but she can get up and down it without any help, so she loved it. And it was low enough when she did fall, she wasn’t hurt and wasn’t freaking out.

She did eventually get over the zebra, and we have a video. She LOVED bouncing on it. Hoping for more nice days to play outside soon!


Halloween 2017

Halloween 2017

We had a super fun Halloween! Our little town does a great job of making it fun and safe. They set up stations on the walking trail (high school clubs, civic organizations, businesses, etc) and you trick-or-treat at the booths. As we walked around, we saw LOTS of friends and loved it.

Then there were two trunk or treats within walking distance of the trail. We didn’t get much candy since Remi can’t eat it all yet (though some people demanded we take candy anyway!), but it was a fun night.

We were Ghostbusters and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. I made our shirts and we bought Remi’s costume months ago while at the party store for a date night.

She LOVED seeing all the people. She was into the costumes.

We loved seeing sweet friends passing out candy.

And she did get to eat (part of) a sucker. She loves them!

One family we know were also dressed like Ghostbusters, and their dog was the same as Remi. She LOVES dogs and was obsessed with Duke!

The weather was a little cold and drizzly, but we all had on two layers of clothing, so the bottom layer stayed dry. It didn’t ruin our fun at all!

The sweet girl passed out on the drive home. Too much fun!


So spirited

So spirited

It was Spirit Week at daycare!

It’s not always easy to get pics of our busy girl, but I try.

She rocked 4 pigtails for crazy hair day.

That evening, we hit the park. She was a little tired and not totally into it, but she did enjoy the slides.

Pajama day was great because we just stayed in our jammies!

Mismatch day was stripes and patterned pants.  And a 4-wheeler ride with Daddy.

She missed their big Halloween party because she had ear tubes put in. She handled the surgery like a champ. She was playful and snuggly beforehand. It took like 10 minutes, and she was confused after, but an hour later, she was back to her normal self.

Friday was Favorite Team day, and she rocked some OU stripes.

We had a big day on Saturday.  We ran errands and had lunch with Daddy. And she looked ADORABLE.

She had her first Starbucks at Target. Ok, it was water. But how cute is she drinking from the Starbucks cup?

Lunch with Daddy is always fun, especially when she gets to play with the velcro on his vest.
