a sneak peek at Pebbles

Layla had her Day Care Halloween Party today at school...check her out in her Pebbles costume!

Her sweet class...

Everything from Elmo, to a pirate, to a little Geisha... a fireman, to a Scare Crow...
a few fairies, and of course,

It's a tad cold here right now, so we had to improvise and put the black tights and black shirt on underneath.  I think she still looks adorable.  Someone actually asked who she was???!!???

Sorry, I wasn't buying this...

I think the REAL DEAL is SO much cuter!

Zoo Boo + Pumpkins!

We had a great time meeting up with our friends, Courtney and Addison, Vanessa, Marvin and Jacquelyn and Tara, Tyler and Ryan for the Houston Zoo Boo Spectacular!!

It was a hectic mess and we all got seperated at some point throughout the day.  But it was a fun time anyway, with lots of cute, festive snap shots along the way!  I'm gonna let the pics do the 'talking!'

Friend Twinsies!
Layla and Miss Addison
Arriving at the Zoo Boo

And their prissy, sassy, gorgeous friend,
Miss Jacquelyn.
Eating a sucker and so proud!

This is what the little ladies did
when we asked them to pose for the pic together.
Miss J with her sucker. 
Miss A doing a pretty good job.
And Miss Layla giving it her best cheerleader pose!

How cool is the sidewalk art?

Candy?!  What candy?!
Oh...the tootsie roll in my mouth?

J and L jammin' to the music...

..still jammin'...
...and eatin' candy...

Now I just ADORE this picture.
Layla's expression exudes an
"I am SO impressed with myself~check me out mom!" look.

And here is our good friend, Tyler!
She had the most spirit and was
the sweetest, cutest, pinkest
cheerleader ever! 

Our girls know the 'Buddy System'

And rarely let go of each others hands!

They are just loving life! 
(I messed up and only got half of Addi's face.
But, I was moving just trying to keep up them!)

Does this even need a caption?  YES!

Carousel Ride of the Tiger!

Miss J and her goregous mommy.
That's Vanessa!
She is the power behind...

After the Zoo Boo, we hit up a
Fall Pumpkin Patch!

Where I found out that Layla does NOT
like large hay turkeys...obviously!

But, she loves little bitty pumpkins.
And the yellow brick road.

She wouldn't let go of that teeny pumpkin!

Now, that is just about perfect!

We had a TURKEY of a day!

Hard Rain

It is still raining down here. 

I guess I shouldn't say STILL, but it is still raining. 

Our weather was gorgeous over the weekend!  Thank you for that Mother Nature. 

But, it started raining last night and it is still raining.  Still.  And hard. 

I am working on a little Zoo Boo Pumpkin post, but I probably won't get around to getting all the pictures uploaded until tomorrow...

Until then.  Don't drown out there!  If you live in soggy Houston, Texas!

Manic Monday - 3rd edition

Anyone can enjoy good days;
those who find ways to enjoy bad days
have something going for them!

Growing Up

 As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn’t supposed to ever let you down probably will.

You will have your heart broken probably more than once and it’s harder every time.

You’ll break hearts too,
so remember how it felt when yours was broken.

You’ll fight with your best friend.

You’ll blame a new love for things an old one did.

You’ll cry because time is passing too fast, and you’ll eventually
lose someone you love.

So take too many pictures,

laugh too much,

and love like you’ve never been hurt.

Because every sixty seconds you spend upset is a
minute of happiness you’ll never get back.

Don’t be afraid that your life will end.

Be afraid that it will never begin.

From balloons to laundry to babies and friends!

That's right. 

The following morning after I blogged about fun and creative ways  to use Hot Air here to read about that!

Wouldn't you just know it...

We opened the back door to let the pup, Sammie, out for the morning...

And this gorgeous Hot Ait Balloon flew...

Directly over our house!  I mean, directly!  It was so neat.  We yelled, "Howdy!" and they waved hello! 

It was another supreme day!!!

That is until I remembered how much laundry I had to do. 

Seven. SEVEN!  Loads to be exact.  All mine.  No towels.  No sheets.  No toddler clothes.

So I got two loads out of the way.  While Layla relaxed....

Comfortable any???? 

Oh yes, of course!  Two feet.  Now we are all good!!!

Then it was off to get some last minute help on the Halloween costume!  With our good friends.  Which means good fun too!

And we were able to see cutie pie, Cameron.  Isn't he just precious? 

Layla spent time with Addison, while myself and Courtney fixed a little sizing error with the costume.  This is a pretty good story and worth blogging I'll save it for later!

It was time to go, and we said our good-byes.  Addison likes to give big hugs!  Can you tell?

And said, "Bye-bye sweetheart!" to Layla.  I don't think much of anything gets cuter than that?!

Our little gang is headed to the Zoo Boo tomorrow and every one is excited! 

I, however, am not too excited that three loads of laundry have been carried over to Sunday.  But, I suppose, that is what I get for allowing it to pile up! 

I know.  I know.  Shame, shame, shame....
