Homecoming 2017

October 20, 2017

We were all bummed that we couldn't make it to Baylor Homecoming so we enjoyed Conroe High School's homecoming.  We went to the parade, bought a Conroe shirt, bought a MUM (even though I myself would never be caught dead in a mum and yes, I'm a native Texan), and had a lot of fun.
We wore our best black and gold (all but Jonathan...who wore blue) and hit up down town to watch the parade.  Very disappointed that they didn't throw goodies to the crowd.   We did grab her a shirt to wear to the game...that we ended up not going to.  It was a long day with lots of unscheduled changes that came up so it just didn't work out.
 Super proud of her little mum.  Texas pride!
 This kid in that vest.  Melts me! Ahh!
 Then there is this one!  She is a literal mess in a dress...or matching shirt/skirt.
 His sweetly trying to steal her sucker.
 His face verses her face.  Give me that SUCKER!
 Hey little stud muffin!
All dolled up on a dreary morning and ready for school!

Where I Post Too Many Pictures

On Saturday Georgia went to a football game with Jonathan and did the cheers from her cheer camp the previous weekend.  When I came to pick her up (I had to work) she was really quiet and I looked down and she was silently crying.  It was so sad.  She didn't want to leave.  The girl she was paired with is a senior and Georgia is so upset she's leaving.  Jonathan and his old secretary snapped a ton of pictures.  I was so glad to see she was having a great time.  They all agreed, Georgia was the best in her stunts and was the only one who could do it with one leg.  I posted all of these photos just for me...you can scroll past them really fast.
Milam and I took our usual walk on Friday.  It was so foggy.  We stopped by our favorite house.  On Halloween night they set up three tables (every year!) and you get one thing from each table.  There is usually a table with glow items, and table with coloring books and other things, and then a candy table.  It is the best!
Jonathan's parents also came over on Friday and we were able to go to dinner and dessert.  So nice!  I forgot that I usually order a kid's size.  I didn't pick a size and Jonathan brought me an ice cream as big as my head.
At some point we found a box turtle in the yard so that was fun.
On Monday we had MOPS and this little guy just could not hang.  He looks like a grown man in this picture.  So dang cute.
I got him in the house, clothes off, and ready for bed and then of course that's when he wakes up because he wants to play with my necklace.
And I won these bracelets at MOPS!  So pretty!
Obviously these pictures are not in any certain order.  These are the kids ready to take on their friday.  Spirit clothes for G and pumpkin diaper for a super spooky Friday the 13th ;)
I got the kids dressed to go to the local pumpkin patch, checked their website to confirm dates and times, and then headed out.  They were not open yet.  Assuming their pumpkins hadn't come in.  So, we drove down to the huge local fruit stand that always sells a ton of pumpkins and did pictures there.  There is a really nice pumpkin patch with games and rides one town over and we went once when G was a baby.  It is just so dang hot here still that we never went back.  Maybe we'll try it again once Milam is older.  Honestly, I really like the small set up Trader Joe's always does.  Cute and INSIDE!
Then, they wore the same clothes for church on Sunday.  I love efficiency!
And we're back on Monday again.  It's been slightly chilly in the mornings and it's so nice and a little bundled baby is just the cutest!  I'm so jealous of his eyes and those lashes!
He rarely will look at me and I rarely like babies in jeans (they just seem so uncomfortable) but he looked so big this morning!  This was before MOPS...the sleeping pics up top were after MOPS.  Obviously blogger took creative license on how to add my pictures in...
I can't ever seem to decorate my porch effectively for any season other than fall.  And it's so small but I do the best I can.  I don't have a lot of space to work with.
I cannot handle how cute he is.  Kills me!
 First grade work.  Counting, counting money, reading, and COOKIES!  Yum!
I've been working so much on the weekends.  That means, during the week I'm doing a lot of editing! But we do manage to get out of the house on occasion for errands.  Other wise I run after him all day and have a messy house...but my clients get their images REALLY fast!


October 13, 2017

It has been super busy around here.  Fall came and we hit the ground running...or everything else hit the ground running and I'm just digging my finger nails in and holding on.  It happens every year.  There are so many fun fall activities and I work the most in the fall.

These two are life.  Jonathan and I tell each other DAILY how we made such cute babies.  To the point that we are scared to have a third.  Will it feel bad if it isn't as cute as the first two?!
Just a few days after Milam's diaper rash had cleared up from his tummy bug the prior week Seventh Generation sent me this disinfectant spray.  I had already sprayed the entire house with Lysol but the whole time I was spraying I was seriously wondering if there was a better product out there.  It was literally the BEST timing ever.  I couldn't believe it!  I was anxious to see if this left a strange film or anything.  It didn't.  I don't mind the smell but Jonathan and Georgia do not care for it at all.  They can just get over it.  It has the same 99.9% effectiveness as Lysol but it is all plant based which is amazing.  I'm excited to be able to clean with it!
They also sent me these clear and free laundry pods!  Y'all.  Again with the perfect timing.  We are doing all free and clear over here because I just got Milam's rash on his face to clear up.  I typically use ALL brand or Honest Company.  I've looked into pods because I've seen bad stories about them on Facebook (clogging drains and such) but Snopes seems to think those are false. I've tried their wipes before as well and they are so gentle on Milam's sensitive skin.  I'm super cautious about anything I put on his skin.  AND, you know what made the biggest difference for his skin?! Probiotics in his morning sippy cup of milk!  Y'all!  It cleared it up SO FAST! (Which, hello...mom guilt! Gut health is apparently set up super early in life.  I passed on poor gut health...terrible thrush...gut health is related to eczema...ahh!)  Put we're on the up and up over here! 
Oh goodness.  This baby boy is spoiled!  He is such a little stinker but I love every itty bitty bit of him.
And he's a monkey.  A total, 100% MESS!
Jonathan's school had a family night.  I didn't know it was inside (hence Milam's outfit) and I also didn't know Jonathan was working the event but I managed to wrangle both kids into eating dinner.
The next day Georgia had cheer camp at Jonathan's school and she had a wonderful time.  So much so that I'm toying with the idea of cheer classes for her.
She got the team work award because she was "so encouraging and helpful" and "tied all the girl's shoes".  I love that she was a great little helper! So proud of her.
Fall fun photos ahead!
Woo hoo!
We went to Trader Joe's while Georgia was in camp.
And of course a church picture
 I got a lot of fun items at TJs.  The kids loved this little spooky house.
 Milam and I walk two miles every morning and the mornings have dipped into a little bit cooler weather the past two days.  I saw these thick/soft bear socks in the Target dollar spot and had to have them for our walks to keep those tiny toes warm.
Georgia is still working hard at gymnastics.  She's made all the splits boards and is really proud.
She had a half day last friday and no school on monday (Columbus day) so we had a fairly long weekend and it was nice.  We worked on a web chart of fun facts.
 She thinks she's just a the biggest girl ever.  She's obsessed with her new gold boots.
 On top of all the fall fun and school fun I've had shoot after shoot after shoot.  This time of year is all about the Christmas card photo and I just have to get it done!
So, all the shoots mean that my house looks like this.  Ahh!
Milam loves Georgia so much and the feeling is very much mutual.  He goes to her and crawls into her lap just like he would with me.  I mean look at that face...and that big head of fluffy hair.  He's a keeper! (I'm trying to let his hair grow out in the front.  It just wasn't shaped right.)
But my goodness, getting him and I ready that day...I was sweating y'all!
I was super grumpy on Thursday and it had just been a slow day.  I was glad to be able to take G to gymnastics just her and I.  I take Milam to my mom's on gymnastics days and Jonathan picks him up from her house once he gets home.
She even got to help lead the stretching in class.  She's in hot pink to the left of the man in orange in the center. (The one doing the wrong leg. ha)
Here's to friday and yet another busy weekend.
