Richard's Family {Day 1}

The Richard's came into town for Thanksgiving! This is my niece Juliette, my brother-in-law Thor, and Chris catching up.
My niece, Priscilla!
Penelope is one month older than Dylan and was sweet to play Monopoly Crazy Cash with Rylan and Payton.
My sister, Jeannine.
You know what's great about having teenage nieces?  They do your hair for you!
It was a fun evening just hanging out and chatting.
Juliette.
Me and goober.  Oh I mean Dylan.
Cousins!
This is going to be a fun week!

Week #46 {2017}

Sunday we were in Georgia.
Monday Bombi's drool game was strong.
Wednesday Rylan had a "hide the turkey" project due.  He hid his turkey as a soccer player of course!
We got to see a beautiful rainbow on the way to school.
I got to go have Thanksgiving Lunch with Payton at school.
Rylan is ALWAYS asking for something...usually gum, or food.  This is his "pretty please" pose.
Thursday I made my first batch of Almond Rocca...so the holiday season has officially begun {well according to me at least!}!
Bombi is a good door draft stopper!
Friday was our first day of Thanksgiving Break!  Woo Hoo!  Dylan and Rylan made Rylan a knight costume out of cardboard...I love when they are creative AND work together!
Then we played in the leaves at Gigi's house.
And of course Payton...silly girl!
Back home it was project time.  We {the kids and I} pulled all of these branches/weeds...
So we can actually see that cool log again!
Then we had a small bonfire.
I LOVE where we live!
Saturday the boys worked on the bathroom,
we made a Lowe's run,
dropped the littles at Gigi's to spend the night and then Bombi snuggled with Dylan the rest of the evening.

Jackson's in Georgia

We found out that Kyla {Chris' cousin's daughter} was playing softball in Woodstock, GA {close to where we used to live} and decided to go down and see her play!  This morning woke up in the hotel {and it's HARD to keep 3 excited kids quiet while Chris is sleeping!}.
It was steamy in our room {because of our showers} and Chris wrote C {heart} B on the window.  Awe... he loves me!
After meeting up with the cousins for breakfast at the hotel, we headed to the ballpark.
It was pretty cold.
Kyla is an amazing softball player!
I love this guy.  His spontaneity with going on these quick trips is fun!
The kiddos LOVE to play with their cousins!  They are all so sweet.
Okay, so this is how they REALLY are!
We got some hot cocoa to try to keep warm.
Payton LOVES Kyla....
Afterwards we went to lunch
The boys played shooter games.
And then we said goodbye, stopped by a friends house for a quick hug and then piled back into the car and headed home!
We drove through this cute, quaint town in Tennessee and the movie theater was spectacular!
Now we get to recover from a whirlwind trip! Whew!

Week #45 {2017}

Sunday morning was BEAUTIFUL outside!  I went out to drink my coffee and the littles followed me out there.
My momma found this awesome picture of me when I was little with my buddy Ed. Our families were friends way before we were born and we saw each other often growing up.  They moved to our area and we ended up going to Jr. High and High School together...so it was fun to find this gem.
Soccer at dusk!
The sunsets are stunning.
Chris worked with Bombi to learn some new tricks.
I love this last picture. He's like "Hey lady, quick taking my picture... I'm trying to work here!"
Monday Payton's school nurse called and said she had pink eye.  So I took her to the doctor and she has a very mild case of a viral infection.  We got medicine and are good to go.
Tuesday at taekwondo, Rylan was drawing and I love how detailed his drawings are becoming.
This guy.  He cracks me up all the time.
I think he's Bombi's best buddy.
Wednesday Dylan is trying out the saxophone in the school band.
At the library, Dylan was teaching Ry how to play checkers.
Back at home, I got to hear him "play" for the first time.
Thursday Payton had to do a speech at school.  She got 1st place and now has to go and compete at the county level!  Way to go Payton!
At my momma's there were 5 deer in her yard!
We were at my mom's because my car had broken down there earlier that day.  Chris came over after work and fixed it for me {he had to replace the alternator}.  He's my hero!
Friday night was Family Movie Night.  AKA I get to eat popcorn night!  And since I'm the mom, I get to hold the bowl.  Hee hee hee!
Bombi wanted a bite.
And then when Dylan had the bowl, Bombi's attention followed.
This dog is spoiled rotten.
Saturday we stopped by Gigi's and the kids quickly raided her cabinets.
Gigi and {some of} her grandkids!
That afternoon we went to the park,
for Rylan's last soccer game.
Payton's friend from school was also there {her sister plays} and they were a {funny} cheering section for Ry Guy.
Ry couldn't WAIT to get back in the game.
Good job Rylan!
We can't wait for next season!
