Whateva u like we do for uuuu........

Whateva we can do at home....with our storage box full of epsom salt, a little foot cream, and some polish. I know Scout will be bringing me a box wanting water because she has already been doing it today.

I even sat in Preston's massage chair while Mom gave me a pedi....who needs Lucky Nail?

Scout with Pop (Hope's dad) at Chili's. I had to get a picture because she usually doesn't want much to do with him. We are so glad for David and Julie.......they are like another set of grandparents.

So we were at Chili's for Summer's 17th birthday. Scout ate like such a pig. Here Summer and Tripp are feeding her dessert.

Summer also had some kids over for her birthday. This picture doesn't do the cake was awesome. Hope does such a good job. We went out to the Cain and played cops and robbers. These kids are a tougher than me. Nobody is dropping me off in the middle of the country where there are wild animals, cactus, and freezing cold. Hope, Julie, Scout, and I kept the fire going.

Happy Birthday Summer Lynn!!!

Two beauties and two out-of-it aunties.....

So......Tandy and I took these two beauties shopping on Saturday. No, I'm not being sarcastic.....they really are beautiful and I'm not just saying it cuz they're my nieces.

We shopped it up and tried on accessories in Forever 21. Yeah....about Forever 21......I sort of feel like I'll forever be 21 while I'm shopping there. However I really think it stands for a 21 inch waist, which I don't have therefore most of the clothes are too tiny for me. I did buy a shirt though.

The whole point of the shopping was because Tandy and I have their names for Christmas and goodness knows I wouldn't even try to pretend I could pick something they would actually like and not be embarassed to wear. So they pointed stuff out to us. Some of it will be a surprise and some won't.

Tandy picked these out and brought them to us for a picture. It was early in the day before we were tired of fighting the crowds. Yuck!! Too bad I'm still gonna have to go back....and probably more than once.

Scout, myself, Riley, Brook, and Kaitlyn

So this picture was taken pretty late on Friday afternoon. Hey you would stay in your pj's all day too if you'd just ridden in the car with a 18 month old all the way to San Antone. Mr. Smith (I'm just going to say that since I'm not really sure if Riley is solely responsible.) helped us find a short-cut which took us right through Fredericksberg. Luckily I was already pretty much asleep because looking at the cool stores all lit up for Christmas would have caused me to be super sad that it was approximately 10 pm and we wouldn't be stopping.

Someday I will get there and to Canton. Whatever....we're talking about Thanksgiving.

Riley and Scout roping the dummy.....not too much to do in the city.

Riley wore his glasses on the drive down and his sideburns were so long they were bushing out all crazy. Brook and I convinced him that he must have a haircut. Buzz cut.....pretty cute if I might say so.

On Saturday we went out to Kait's parent's ranch. This is Scout and Kay (Kait's mom) pretend shopping with their credit card machine. We had a fabulous time there. Brook grilled an awesome meal for us and then of course.......Riley's favorite pastime.........PICTURES.

Speaking of pictures.....this one would be great if the monkey wasn't making a whiney face. I'm pretty sure this took place in the house after one set of pics. She really did pretty good considering getting teeth, too much car seat, changing clothes, etc. Christmas pics coming up!! You can also check them out on Kait's site

Oh, about the meal I mentioned earlier.....this is all you need to see to understand what I'm talking about.

What a great pic of the guys and their dad!!

Kait, Scout, and Mr. Dale (Kait's Dad) taking a little ride.

We had a great time.....too bad it is so far. It makes me appreciate Brook and Kait always coming up here. Thanks for having us ya'll and we can't wait to see you again soon.
