Our Journey to Molly


Saturday, November 9, 2013

What does November in Melissa, Tx look like?...

Looks like summer, right?  Well it's warm, but not warm enough for this shirtless and shoeless attire! I caught the boys walking up to the house like this and am glad that Reed's friend's mama is a laid back boy mom! 
The weather has been perfect and couldn't have been better for Halloween night.  We had Dorothy, 2 Morphs, and a Scream man.  They had too much fun and got WAY too much candy!
I figured since Molly was going to be Dorothy, she better watch the movie!  Of course she loved it and was so excited to carry around little Toto.  
Here she is at her preschool Fall Festival parade.  There were some kids crying and some not wanting to walk, but as you can see she was eating every second up:)

This is the crew about to leave for trick or treating.  Ben and a group of his friends went around by themselves for the first time.  They're feeling so independent these days!  Oh and since you can't see their faces, Gage is the blue morph and Reed is the green one. Ben is the Scream man by Gage.

This pic just cracks me up!

Molly and I made a last minute girl's trip to College Station to visit one of my besties and her little girl, Julia.  She and Molly had a blast together, and of course Shelley and I did too.  It's hard to talk with our crazy lives lately, so it was so fun to catch up, uninterrupted, for a whole weekend!
The girls did a lot of this...

We got some really cute shots of them at the pumpkin patch

LOVE these girls!!

We had grandma's and grandpas come visit 2 weekends in a row!  Pawpaw and Gigi came the first weekend.  I love how the kid's have certain things they like to do with each grandparent.  What they love to do with Pawpaw is build.  As soon as they got here they were off to home depot getting some building kits.  Hopefully one of the kid's picks up his amazing wood working talent!

The next weekend Pa and Nana came in.  Another fun weekend just hanging out, eating smores and having tea parties :)

We loved our time with the grands!

The kids were out of school for conference day a couple of weeks ago, so we went to the pumpkin patch.  We've gone to the same one ever since Ben was a baby.  

Love making good memories with my babies.

We had our first broken bone in the family a couple of months ago.  I'm surprised it's taken this long!  Reed was going to jump out of a tree(all while pretending to be a flying spider monkey,,haha) and his foot got caught! He tried to break his fall with his arm and broke his wrist.  We weren't sure if it was broken until he woke up crying in the middle of the night. 

He didn't let it stop him playing soccer! Bubble wrap to the rescue!

 Molly with her friend, Allie Ray, at dance class.  They're practicing for a Christmas dance they will do in downtown Mckinney in December.  Her class of 3 will be dressed as little angels. I can't wait! And I have a feeling she'll love dancing in the spotlight :)

And last but not least, Happy Birthday to Jonathan...the Best husband and daddy in the world!! We love you so much and are blessed to call you ours :)
