Stuff in September...

I cannot remember to bring my camera anywhere anymore! I've officially lost my mind these days! iPhone pics are all I got and mostly out of order!

I went to meet my new sweet cousin. She is my cousin Chafen's, baby girl, Dottie. Named after our grandmother, Dottie. She is a little doll!

The three reasons I have lost my mind lately. love 'em!
MIMI and PawPaw came to visit for a few days and traveled in style in their new RV. They have always been RV'ers but we had not met this one. Next road trip for the Hall Family needs to be in this little beauty:).

Last night was an unbelievable game for the Lions. It was a packed house to watch us, the underdogs, take on the Denton Ryan Raiders. We lost a heartbreaker 35-28. :( We are now 4-1 on the season, but what an amazing start! We are coming off a very tough season last year and now we have jumped up to 5A being the smallest 5A in the state. Our district is going to be tough, but we are so proud our Lions! Pretty awesome to see so many fans sit through the rain to cheer on the Lions.
Little B enjoyed his first game of the year tucked tight in the moby wrap all night. He didn't make a peep the entire night. He was all smiles at 11:00pm when we got home. Sweet babe!
Today we went with Daddy by the school. Daddy is off today! First Saturday in about 6 weeks! We have a bye this week so they don't have to work this weekend. Daddy needed to throw the teams wash in the washer. I'm sure that is in his job description somewhere. :) We don't mind, as we all tagged along for a little play in the dome. 

Graham is almost 3!! In two weeks!!
Anna Lou on her 4!
AL insisted Boone needed his pic by the 0. ha!
The rain from last night continues today, but we don't mind.
This is an iPhone pic of the actual print of our family pic for the football program. Oh Boone! Hilarious!
 A few weeks ago, we met my friend Stephanie and her two cute kids at the Covenant Church in Carrollton. They have a free, open to the public play area that is awesome! I wish I had pics of Owen and Chloe too. This place was huge and everyone was everywhere! G just followed AL everywhere the entire time. 

they even had rock climbing.
 And two final pics of happy Baby Boone!

Back to School!

WOOHOO! It's back to school time! We started with a little Meet The Teach for Miss Anna Lou at none other than "Honey's School," Parkway Hills. 

It's pretty awesome to have all of AL's class from last year end up together again. Plus two new friends!

Mrs. Alice Anne is already a star in her eyes!
Jack, AL and Kate
The awesome new indoor playground!

We made chocolate chip cookies for the the MDO and Preschool teachers with a tag that said "with you as my teacher, I'll be one smart cookie." It was all over the www, not my idea!

The first day of school finally came and we were all pumped!
Daddy picked up donuts that morning and dropped them off before work. He is out the door at 4:30 am and had to wait for the donut store to open at 5. ha! What a sweet Daddy to leave their favorite treat and a note! We had a few little treats waiting for them with their donuts.

 I had to wake Graham up to get our morning going, as you can tell.
 Time for a few pics. G has definitely come out of his shell and can really ham it up! He is a tooter with pics sometimes! My mom says I was the same way for years with taking pics. GREAT!

 Typical of what they do when I tell them I want a pic with Boone. G thinks he is interested in his motorcycle. Clearly, he is thrilled.

 Yay for some time with little B!

Our first week was success! We are so excited for the wonderful blessings that this school, church and  mod program give our family! It is full of such special, Godly, loving teachers and staff to love on our most prized possessions! 

I have to note this, although I am sure I won't forget anytime soon...

Both kids had quite a list of things to bring with them on the first day. I had most everything ready the night before because I knew our morning would be hectic. I thought we had everything and even went all day before finding out we forgot one thing. Anna Lou's UNDIES!! That is what we call them at our house! Sweet thing had her new dress on and nothing else! No undies, no bloomers, nothing!! Thank goodness she noticed in the first hour of school and told her sweet teacher, who discreetly helped her find her extra pair in her "extra clothes" in her backpack. She giggled telling me the story after school. Mrs. Alice Anne and I really giggled when she told me her version of the story later.  Two things that I was glad about- #1 she whispered when telling Mrs. AA, therefor she knew it was a private matter:). #2 she realized it before they went to the playground:).

It's Here!

Football season is HERE! We are in full swing! 

We went up to Daddy's office a few weeks ago to take family pics for the football program.

 Even little bit has some Lion spirit!
Our first game was all the way in Mansfield. Thankfully, MIMI was in town and kept B at home. AL, G and I met Papa and took a little road trip to watch our Lions and our favorite coach!

Waiting for Daddy to come out. 

Notice G is nowhere to be seen when the mascots are around. 

I just missed the pic of a quick kiss from Daddy.

It was H-O-T til the sun went down.

 Fun friends to play with during the game.
 Sweet Allie always looking after AL.
 G took this lovely picture but had to include since this is truly how I felt with the awesome LION VICTORY!!
 This is how we keep kids awake and happy at 11pm.

So happy to hug Daddy after the big win!
