#1 Cute Kiddos in Sunglasses
This picture is one of my new faves!!  hahahahaha!  Nixon and Presley were crazy in their mamas’ sunglasses!  hahaha!

Thank you again to everyone who has prayed for, donated and showed some love to the Maxwell family.  This 5K and Fun Run is being held in Manda’s honor on Saturday, December 13th and all proceeds to benefit her family.  Click HERE for more info.  If you’re local, PLEASE come out and participate!  It’s going to be a super family-friendly event with bounce houses, food, vendors, a silent auction, and more.  Lots of family fun!

#3 Pumpkin Patch Trip #1
Last weekend, the kiddos and I met one of my besties from college, Erin, at a pumpkin patch.  I LOVE pumpkin patches!  I love everything about them!  The weather was cool, so I did what I do every year and dressed the kiddos in fall clothes.  By 11:30, we were all SWEATING and HOT!  hahaha!

Nixon tried to make a face in every cut out.  haha!  He didn’t believe in JUST smiling!

For some reason (maybe the dark hair?) Bowen for about the last six months has called Narci, “Dora”.  But he says it in a super cute almost two-year-old voice, so it sounds like “Dorwda”.  Anyway, we took this picture beside Dora for Mrs. Narci.  🙂  This pumpkin patch has wooden cutouts of almost every character I could think of.  They kiddos thought that was super cool.

The big kids went up and down this slide numerous times!

Then THIS happened!!  (For this picture I was standing on a lookout.)  We came to the hay maze that had a sign saying, “For Children Only”.  Erin and I encouraged the big kiddos to go in.  They were a little apprehensive.  I had NO clue why!  A couple kids went in front of them and I told them to follow those kids.  Long story short, I just hadn’t realized how big and crazy this hay maze actually was!  There was no way for parents to really get in other than this lookout.  When I stepped up onto this platform to look for them, I started sweating!!!  Erin and I spread out around it to start shouting their name, but LUCKILY they came out about five seconds after this picture!  Whew!

The horse was a BIG hit!

Roomies from college!  We showed up BOTH wearing gingham and orange earrings!  haha!

Check out this girl’s witch face!!

They thought this old school merry-go-round was the coolest!!  Thank you to the one dad who pushed all the kiddos.  Seriously, thank you!!  Remember I was dressed in fall clothes and sweating?  haha!

Nixon’s cowboy face??  This boy keeps me on my toes and I’m usually laughing!

#4 Rodan and Fields

Check out these before/afters…she started using the Unblemish regimen to get rid of her acne and then switched to Redefine to fight the fine lines/wrinkles.  Love that transformation in five months!!

E-mail me if you want to learn more about the perfect products for you!

#5 My Boys
One day last week the boys and I stopped by Sonic’s Happy Hour for some drinks.  Then we walked to school to get Ebby Lee.

Also…next Saturday, October 18th, from 2:00-4:00 p.m. there will be a Zumbathon to raise money for Manda.  Let me just say that I am NOT a dancer.  I repeat.  I am NOT a dancer, but I’ll be there with my three kiddos.  We’ll be dancing, being silly, AND supporting Manda!  If you’re local, you should come!

#7 Texas State Fair
Something I love just as much as a pumpkin patch is the Texas State Fair.  The Slaughters are headed there this weekend!  I’ll have lots of pictures for you next week!

Hope you have a GREAT weekend!!
