Funny Jack Story

The other day, I was standing at the sink doing the dishes when Jack walked up to me, pulled down the back corner of my yoga pants and stuck me in the cheek with a screwdriver.

I wasn't sure if I was shocked or if it was "naughty" but I was laughing so hard I could hardly pull my pants back up.

I guess Jack thought that was pretty funny too!  Jeremiah and Brayden were just staring at us before they burst into laughter too.

That kid!

We took a trip to Texas this past September.  
Now, it feels so long ago that I can hardly remember the details.  
So here are the pictures, with just a few memories!

We got there on Saturday and as we walked out of the terminal, Gamma Karen looked at me and said "Oh a third!  How wonderful!"  Which shocked me, because we were waiting to get to TX to tell them that we were expecting again.  Grandma's just know I guess!  :)

Aunt Trisha and Aunt Chrissy and Auntie Mel-Mel and the four of us went to see a Ranger's game on Sunday. Last year we got to tour the stadium.  This year, after a two hour rain delay, we got to watch the game from our super swanky box seats (thanks to Auntie Brandy!).  After the rain delay, the boys were pretty restless, so we each went for a walk around the park.  Brayden and I were snuck up on by the mascot, some kind of cool horse, who rubbed Brayden's head as he walked by!  Tricia and Chrissy also took a day of work just to spend Monday with us.  We always have such a fun, fun time with them, and the boys love the special attention.  We got to see Papa Graham, Grannie Glenna, Jen, Tim, Graham, Olivia and Lauren, too!

Grandma Betty, Aunt Micky, Rick and his lovely wife came down to visit for a couple of days too.  Grandma Betty even taught me the secret family recipe for home made ice cream!  Wohooo! We went to Dinasour World, Steve got married and we saw a long horn cattle drive down the middle of the street.  It was awesome!  Even with all of that going on, we still had time for special treats like hair cuts and shopping and movies.  It was an awesome trip!  The best part was that we got to spend a lot of time with everyone...especially Calvin and Crew!

I am really frustrated with how these pictures are loading, so I am going to leave them in the random order they come up in.  I just need to get this up already!  Sorry about the random-ness!

Before we left, we worked on canning all of our tomatoes-I really wanted to bring some with us, and then I didn't even get to give any go Grandma Karen, I just used the dang things up in a recipe.  

This sign made me laugh so hard I almost peed my pants!

Steve's wedding-Daddy was the best man!

The "horses" at the Fort Worth Stock Yards!

Aww!  Such a good looking couple.

All of the little fella's at the wedding!

Just the four of us!
And Little Baby Love tucked in there under that belt.

Daddy with the man of the hour.

Pappa George took care of feeding Jack for me during the wedding dinner.
He took so much better care of Jack then I would have!

He wiped his little face after every bite and kept him entertained and full.
It was so sweet!

Aunt Brandy and Jack played games on her phone for a little while too.
It was hard to tell who was having more fun.
At bed time, Gamma and Pappa took them home.
It was a really, really fun night!

Best man speech. 

More box seats at the baseball game.
(sorry about the random order!)

Passing the rain delay together.  :)

At the River Legacy Park Nature Center.

Tuttles!  Look!  Tuttles!
Jack's favorite.

Catching Geckos.  Real  live ones that weren't in the exhibits, just out running around.
We saw armadillos to (but they were dead on the side of the time, a live one!)

Brayden and Lauren

Having fun at Dinosaur World!!!

Heaven on earth for these 4!

And none of them spit at us this time, or were scary!

Texas dirt!  Who knew?

Long horns!

Long Horn cattle Drive!
