Happy Happy Birthday to my Firstborn

My baby girl is 12 today - I cannot believe that at all!!! That means in just 12 short months she is going to be a TEENAGER!!! It's cliche, but time slow down please!

Emma you are such an amazing girl and I am so proud of the little lady you're becoming! I am so happy for the people in her life that show her such love and the great friends she has made! 

We had said no more "birthday parties", but we still wanted to celebrate, so a small group of gals got together and we went to Old Town Spring to the most amazing little painting place. We love going there to paint and have fun and they do all kinds of projects. For her party Emma wanted to learn how to start and create bullet journals. I wasn't sure how all the girls were going to like it, but it was such a hit! The creativity was definitely swimming around they all fed off one another's ideas for how they wanted to put their pages together! Even the next day they were talking about how they were going to use it!

We had another rainy Halloween this there weren't many pictures! But there was lots of fun! Our neighborhood is so awesome - we have so many kids and everyone is big on Halloween. Many really go all out with haunted houses and lots of decoration and, of course, candy! Even adult treats get given out! LOL
Pre-Hallween antics!

Aaron's First Buck

Aaron is finally a licensed hunter with his own gun! He's actually been hunting for a while, but never had his own gun or made his own this was his year!! His Uncle David can't talk smack to him anymore! Ha ha!

Mother/Daughter Weekend

Being that this weekend was youth weekend, Aaron & Michael headed out of town to hunt so Emma and I had the house to ourselves all weekend long! It was so nice & quiet!! LOL

After the football game Friday night the boys headed out so Emma and I went to the Haunted Carwash...Emma had no qualms with going...until we got there! LOL Once she saw what was waiting for us she took up residence in the floorboard of the Jeep and didn't move!

Flag Football Has Begun

So, Aaron has been pretty busy year round with baseball since he started playing and going Select that isn't going to slow we weren't sure how football was going to fit in, but when your teammates for baseball are playing football that means your schedules will kinda line up the same!

So...we're playing winter football now! And I'm honestly so excited - I've wanted Aaron to play football for a while now. And while they didn't win their first game it was still fun. And along with Aaron I think most of the boys on the team have never played football before...maybe only like three of them. So they all have a lot of learning to do together!

Scorpions Baseball

We had quite the busy weekend!! Friday we drove up to Austin for my nephew's wedding...we had planned to spend the weekend, but then our weekend got full with stuff going on at home. So, we got up way too early to drive home Saturday (5AM) for a 10AM football game that got cancelled! Sheesh! Then we had a 5PM birthday party for our nephew turning 10 and a 9PM birthday party for our friend turned 45! Then a double-header Sunday as the baseball fields and had to get Red Ribbon week attire in order for Monday! It was a super busy weekend!!! I am still tired.

Scorpions Spring 2018

Yesterday we had two make up games to play since we were rained out the weekend before...I almost thought we were going to get rained out again, but the fields held up so we could play! Yay!!! It started off pretty cool for game one, but by the second one we were getting a little toasty. And the mosquitoes were in full force, too - bug spray for everyone.

This weekend wasn't as victorious as last weekend, but at this level that is what's gonna happen. So it just means work harder, practice more, and get even better! This is a brand new team, too and only a few of these boys have played together before. So - next weekend will be a better one. And it wasn't for lack of playing and effort either - the boys all played great games! I was very proud of Aaron and how he played, as well as the rest of the team.

Aaron has become a great catcher - he really sees the field and is in-tune to what's happening and definitely is not afraid to send the ball when there is a steal or guard home when there is a runner coming in! I thought he'd found his home at 3rd, but that has become secondary to playing catcher now! So proud of him!
