Pumpkin Carving

Pumpkin Carving with Daddy


First you have to get all the slimy, stringy stuff out!



Ewwwww!

Just look at Madi's face...
She would not do this part. She actually gagged when she smelled the inside of the pumpkin!




Daddy and his girls!
The only picture I got...before the final cut!

We found out that I am not a very good pumpkin carver. My attempt to carve Elmo for Madi did not work out!

First Day of Preschool





Another school year has started and has kept me VERY busy! The Tuesday after Labor Day the girls started school. Haylee is in the 4 year old class at Tiny Treasures. This is her last year of preschool. Next year she will be a WILDCAT (my school) in Kindergarten! I can NOT believe it!


Madi started her first year of preschool . She LOVES it. I was hesitant to put her in...just because she is my baby! But, she is so ready for it.


1st Day of Preschool



Sweet Sisters


Daddy took the girls to school on the 1st day! They were so excited.


Backpacks on!


Ready to GO!!


My big girl! Yay Madi!


OMG! Where has the time gone?!

Potty Prizes




Madi is about 98% potty trained. She is terrified of going #2 in the potty. So EVERY time she does, we make a HUGE deal about it. She always asks for an ice cream cone. We have made it 3 days in a row so I took the girls out for an ice cream treat at the ice cream shop for this celebration.





Madi enjoying her YELLOW ice cream. I believe it is passionfruit and fig sorbet.

Sounds strange, but it was yellow and Madi loves anything yellow.




Haylee with her yummy birthday cake ice cream. It had chucks of real cake in the ice cream!

Swim Videos



This video is Haylee after her 2nd session of swim. She started out the summer as a guppy. Then, moved up to goldfish. Now, she is a Dolphin and couldn't be more excited!

We are THRILLED with what she has learned!


Here is 1 video of Madison after her first session of swim. She promoted from guppy to goldfish. She is FEARLESS in the pool.


(I was going to post more but it is taking forever for the video to upload.)

Houston Swim Club is amazing! We are so proud of our Haylee Bug and Baby Madi!

Swim Round 2

We just finished up another round of swim at Houston Swim Club. We are in love with that place. I am looking at our schedule trying to find where we can fit in some maintenance classes to keep these little fish swimming year round. Videos will be uploaded soon.

Just for FUN

Since its been so HOT the past few weeks we haven't been out much. Travis needed to get some bew work boots before he headed out of town for some work so we road along to the mall with him. Earlier that day Travis took Haylee to see the Smurfs movie and told her that she could jump on the big trampoline at the mall later. So we had to let her jump after we went boot shopping. And since you can't let one do it and not the other, Madi also got to jump. I had pictures of Haylee too but someone got ahold of my phone and deleted a bunch! Here is Madi getting ready to jump and a short video!

Cheers to 7 years!!

Our 7 Year Wedding Anniversary!


Where did the time go?? Travis and I have actually been dating for 15 years.


He is truly my BFF!


We went out to a very nice dinner at Perry's Steakhouse.








After dinner we stopped by a friends birthday party at Midnight Rodeo. We had such a fun night hanging out with each other and some good friends.

Zoo Trip

Our zoo day began early! We arrived at the zoo right at opening time. I forgot how nice the SA zoo was. A lot of it is shaded with large trees. The temps weren't too hot in the morning.


My 'lil monkeys checking out the monkeys.



A 2 headed turtle!!



Our air conditioner.



Pink Flamingos


Petting Zoo



Pretty close, huh?


The girls with Aunt Victoria and a sweet treat!


The coolest exhibit at the zoo! We were standing at the glass looking at the fish, then all of the sudden this HUGE hippo swims up. It was so awesome!!


11:00 in the morning and it's starting to get H-O-T!


The tour guide!



The snack monitor!

A Week with Aunt Vicca


This past week we spent in San Antonio visiting with Aunt Victoria and Great Grandma Thurmond. We had tons of fun! Here is our week in pictures.


Schertz has lots of AWESOME parks.







One evening we stopped at Subway and had a picnic at this park.










Of course we did a little shopping while Great Grandma got her nails done. The girls are ready for school! I think the backpacks they chose reflect their personalities perfectly!


A sweet treat while we wait.




Haylee loved drawing at Aunt Victoria's desk.



A picture with Great Grandma.





Great Grandma taught the girls how to make hummingbird food.




We swam at the big pool and in the back yard. We had more treats.





Bed time stories with Aunt Victoria.





We had so much fun! I will post our trip to the San Antonio zoo next!
