Fall and Family Photos

Fall is one of my favorite times of year. I love watching everything change, I love that it's football season, colder weather, Halloween, Thankgiving, the different Fairs, fall food, colors, and my all time smell is spice cake or pumpkin candles. I love to decorate my house and cook popcorn balls, pumpkin rolls, and candy apples! YUM! This year we will be going to the St. Ann's Fair and Fiddlestick Farm. We are hoping to pick out some great pumpkins from the pumpkin patch and we'll even do some carving right before Halloween!

Here are some great family pictures because I wanted to show memories of Zoee at 18 months of age. We are so blessed!

Zoee loves Lola

My pride and joy

I can't believe we've been married 6 1/2 years. Time seems to be just flying by us. I still love him just as much as I did back then...actually I love him more. He's given us a great life and given me a chance to be a great mother to a sweet, loving lil' girl!

Rooting for Daddy's Favorite Team

As most of you already know, Mike's favorite NFL football team is the Oakland Raiders

(even though the Houston Texans runs a close 2nd)

He loves everything Raiders and has since he was a young boy.

Apparently their team used to be really good back then and some of the greats have played for the team.

Mike is such a big fan and it's a major part of his life so I wanted to pay tribute to his everlasting love of the sport and his favorite team. So I had made a tutu for Zoee a long time ago and she's actually never worn it. I dressed her in it for a our photo shoot so she could take pics with her Daddy dressed in his favorite team gear. I love these shows how much they love each other and Mike is such a wonderful father..I love him so much!

Our Busy Lil' Bumblebee

This year for Halloween we have decided to dress Zoee as a Bumblebee. This costume so best describes her...the busy lil' bee that she is. Courtney took photos of Mike, Zoee, and I (Lola included in some) the other day in a little photo shoot for Zoee's 18 month pictures. We wanted to get some good ones of her dressed in her Bumblebee costume and they turned out so cute. Enjoy!

Toys R US, Dinnertime Delight, & Crib to Toddler Bed

A trip to Toys R Us on Saturday afternoon with her Grammy and PaPaw. She made out like a bandit with lots of X-Mas gifts they bought her. Here they are heading over to look at the kitchens. X-Mas is going to be so much fun this year!

Zoee loves Toys R Us! As does every kid, I'm sure! LOL

Testing out the toys and the rides

Enjoying her Spaghetti meal way too's all over her face!

Zoee gets into the cereal box almost every day. She loves Cheerios and always helps herself to a serving! HA HA

This is a pic of what is a regular occurance these days..Zoee trying to get into her crib from the outside. This is one of the main reasons we decided to change her over to her toddler bed. The first night it only took us 2 1/2 hours (I think mostly because she wasn't tired yet), to get her to sleep. We'll see how the transition goes. I can't believe she's already in a toddler bed..she's growing up way too fast!

Zoee's Toddler Bed...converted from her crib.
This is her trying to sneak out
She's laid her out a pallet on the floor..guess she decided she didn't want to sleep in her bed tonight.

Visiting with Uncle Rob & Family Fish Fry

Ethan's getting so big..he's growing up!

My Mamasita...Love her

My cousin, Vicki was making some icing for the cake

The boys were chatting over the fryer

Aunt Kathy, Vicki, Mom, Jillery, and Aunt Carolyn making a great meal

Mike and Uncle David were chatting

All the kiddos are finally getting old enough to play together.

We haven't all got together in a long time. It was a lot of fun!

Nighttime Fun

Our lil' Dare Devil..ever since she has learned to climb up on the's been non-stop action.

And I will never understand why she likes to put her floatie in the living room.
And she likes to take her pink potty and put it on top of her head...why are kids so hilarious!
