Catching up…

My daddy called me today and asked I realized that it had been almost two weeks since I last posted on my blog.  I knew it had been a while, but I didn’t realize it had been that long.  Megan really put the peer pressure on me to keep up with what we were doing so know I’m doing a catch up post :) 

Here are a few pictures of Megan and Hudson from the night before they left.  So sweet.  (On a side note: that is Hudson’s H wall in his room.  It’s my favorite thing in his room!  I know I need to post pictures of his room.  I’ll put it on my to do list!)

We had so much fun with them and can’t wait to see them again in less than two months!   Wow!  Can you believe that Christmas is right around the corner?!

Landree and Hudson have had the best time celebrating their birthday’s (over a month ago now) by receiving late gifts in the mail.  My other BFF, Shauna, was so sweet to send Landree the new Tinkerbell movie and Hudson a Dallas Cowboys shirt.  Landree was so excited.  She said she how did she know I’ve wanted this!  We watched it immediately and it’s really cute.  Oh, and we wore the Cowboys shirt yesterday even though Jeff said he was pretty sure that his team couldn’t beat the other team.

Grandma sent us a fun box a few days ago with a Rangers shirt for Jeff and Rangers outfit for Hudson along with the CUTEST. shirt with ‘band’ stuff on it and dark jeans.  He wore it to church yesterday morning and looked so cute!  Landree was super excited about her new hairclips, Rosetta, and clothes.  And I loved my new fall dish towels and magazines Grandma sent me.  Thanks so much Grandma! 


And over the weekend Jeff had the annual senior high only camping trip so we stayed busy playing with friends and doing our best to not cook. at. all!  Friday morning we headed to the zoo with all of Landree’s best-ies.  I didn’t get a picture of them all looking at me, but I loved this one of them all checking out the owls.  Then after the zoo Landree, Hudson and I headed to our favorite Chick-fil-a with Lisa, Ella and Jake.  The girls had fun playing in the play area before heading home.  After naps Landree, Hudson and I met up with the Brewer’s for dinner at McAllister’s.  Kids eat free after 5 so all 3 of us ate dinner for 6.62.  It was so good (and cheap) we decided to go again on Saturday night :)


Saturday morning after Hudson woke up from his nap we ate a quick lunch and headed out to the state park where the students were camping.  We don’t get to spend tons of time with Jeff, but Landree loved getting to run around, and her favorite college student Lauren was there so she was happy as a lark. 


They roasted a pig for dinner on Saturday night.  Y’all, this grossed me out!  YUCK!  Jeff wanted to show Landree, but I was scared it would scar her for life.  It didn’t even faze her!  She just laughed at it!

Landree and I have been crafting a little lately and these turned out so cute that I have to share.  We covered mason jars in orange tissue paper using Mod Podge.  I cut out cute (not scary) jack-o-lantern faces and let Landree glue them on the jars and then I went back over the jar again with the Mod Podge.  It dried clear and they look so cute with a little battery operated tea light.  We also painted the lids with green craft paint.  This is a super cheap craft and it was really easy to do.  Landree could do most everything by herself. 


Ok, I think we are ‘caught up’ for now.  I just need to finish all of our birthday posts :/ UGH!  I love this time of year.  There is so much fun stuff going on!  Hope you’re all having a great fall!
