Happy Birthday, Daddy

This is Hadlee writing today.
It was my dad's birthday yesterday, so we got him a cookie cake at the mall.

Dog dressed up two times.

My mom has this thing where you get to go on a date with her.  Harper and Hays have got to go on a date with her, but I haven't got to go.  My mom said that I will get to go in Victoria.

Awards Ceremony- 1st 9 weeks

We received a note from the school that Hadlee was going to receive an award during the 1st 9 week award ceremony.   Daddy went to the ceremony to celebrate with the kids.   They all received perfect attendance and all As.  Hadlee received student of the month for October.   

They each received a card with coupons for free stuff at local businesses.   The girls begged me to go get a free rose on Saturday.   

Sweet and silly 

Haidyn is 2

We went to Victoria to celebrate with Haidyn on his birthday.   It was a fun day- playing with Hannah all day and Haidyn after his nap.  He loved eating his cake and playing with all of his new toys.

Halloween 2014

We went to a pumpkin patch the week before Halloween to pick out pumpkins.

It's a family farm and the community helps out with working at the pumpkin patch.  

The girls got to play and we enjoyed a hayride back to our car.

Washer Tournament 2014

We have been spending more time in the backyard.

Take a picture of me!

This was the only picture I got from this weekend.  Hadlee and Yancey posing for new wallpaper on the Ipad.

Guadalupe County Fair 2014

For the last 4 years we have gotten off the Friday before Turkeyfest and the last 3 years we have went to Turkeyfest.  This year was not going to be a traveling year so we joined in our local festivities in Guadalupe County.  We went to the 30 minute parade on Friday morning.  After church on Sunday we went to the fair with Cyndy, she was in Texas for the long weekend.
Hadlee won a fish, the man gave Hays one after he lost the game.

RIP goldfish, they lasted until Monday and Tuesday

We all loved the fair and had a great afternoon with Cyndy.

Of course they had to ride some rides.

Weekend in Victoria

A morning of bale jumping, Hays wanted me to point out that he catching air in this picture.

Hannah and Hadlee 

After dinner with the family, I took the kids for a round of Putt-Putt.

Lutherfest-  The kids had a blast.  Carson was helping them play bingo.   I think the kids won 6 cakes and 4 6 packs of cokes.   They were on a high for sure!

End of September 2014

The girls wanted to enter their picture for a GAP contest.   We spend a Sunday afternoon in September taking pictures.  Mema and Papa came for the afternoon and treated us to dinner.  

After they left, we got the sidewalk chalk out to make Daddy a welcome home banner.

The last Friday of September, my school treats the "good" students to an open gym.  We had over 100 students that came to have fun.   The girls were at a sleep over and Hays came to have fun.   He is taller than a majority of the 6th graders so he fit right in.

First 3 weeks of School

Yes, they are 3rd graders and loving school.  They have 3 different teachers and it seems to be going fine for all of them.

Dog joins them every morning for the drop-off.

Poor Harper had an allergic reaction to something the first 2 days of school.

We gave her benedryl the first day and she fell asleep all afternoon and evening.  

There was lots of time for water play.

or mud play

We had to make a trip to find new clothes for 3 growing kids.

First football game at the new field.

Student council bribery!   All three ran for Student Council this year, Hays and Hadlee won for their class.  

This sweet thing took it well, she was bummed but held it together for her siblings!   She's our WINNER!
