Birthday Boy

My lil guy turns 9 today.
The first thing my husband tells me this morning is did you know he will be grown in 9 more years....
No!!!! I can still remember giving birth.
This little dude is a ton of fun.
 This is one of my favorite pictures of him at Disney 4 years ago.
 It shows his sweet smiley eyes and big smile.
He will always be my little boy.
Although now, he's a rough and tumble 9 year old.
Look at the mean machine on the football field taking down the quarterback.

Yummiest and Easiest Crock Pot Recipe

I love the fall and I love my crock pot!
This year we are so busy each evening with kids activities. We all get home at different times on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
To avoid fast food I've made a commitment to making crock pot meals these days.
Let me tell you, I found a super easy and very yummy recipe on pinterest.
It's very simple:
4 chicken breast (I threw in 4 frozen Tyson)
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 8oz of cream cheese (I used reduced fat)
1 packet of Zesty Italian Dressing Seasoning
Just throw it all in the crock pot and cook on low for 4 hours. I pulled the chicken out to shred after that and put in a bag of cooked bow tie pasta and let it cook for about 30 more minutes.
It was SOOOO good! We all ate it even the picky kids.
There is something so wonderful as a mom to come home and dinner is done and warm.

Busy Life of 6

This is a typical evening at our house. 
My favorite thing about living in the country is all the room to play outside.
Our busy summer days have come to a close and we've started a new school year.
This year we have 3 in school. Our Madeline started kindergarten! What a big day for our sweetie.

 We had a final summer outing before school started to the American Girl store in Dallas.
 All I can say is WOW!
We had a fantastic time!
 Both little girls brought their dolls to join us in afternoon tea.
 Katelyn and Nana joined in on the fun. A girls never too old to play dolls.
 The little girls before the first day of school. Madeline was up and ready 30 minutes before we had to leave. Caroline had no idea she was going to get Mommy all to herself.
 All fixed up and ready for the 1st day.
Girls take sure careful consideration what to wear compared to Will who slapped on a shirt from last year and was ready to go back.
 Here she is with her backpack in place ready to start class. This is where Mommy started to tear up.
 This year our oldest daughter made Captain of her drill team!
We are beyond thrilled and so proud of her hard work. This team has a very dedicated leader.
 Will continues to be our master lego builder.
Since Mommy refuses to put up real deer antlers on the wall Will made his own lego sculpture.
We had a wonderful summer and it flew by very quickly.
 In a few short months we will be welcoming another baby girl.
She still doesn't have a name but we've got it narrowed down to a few. We might wait until she arrives and see what name fits her best.
