Happy Birthday Skylar!

Skylar turned 3 in November! We had a fun party for her and she had a great time playing with her friends, eating cupcakes and opening presents!
She, of course, picked out her favorite "party" dress for the special occassion!

At this time in her life she is into a few different things. Ligloss, chapstick and lipstick round out the top three. So, naturally she has to be sure that her look is complete with an enormous amount of chapstick. The application process pretty much runs all day...

I am guessing she wished for more chapstick, lipgloss and lipstick...

The kids had lots of fun decorating their cupcakes! They had sprinkles, icing and m&ms to decorate with.

It was kind of one of those "one on the cupcake 2 in the mouth" situations with the m&ms.

The girls table had lots of fun with it!

And the princess added a few new dresses to her wardrobe which makes her very happy! She also got lots of new lipgloss, chapstick and lipstick...and gum. That rounds out her top four. She loves gum. But only for about 3 minutes. Then she spits it out and gets a new piece. Repeat steps 1-3. We go through a lot of gum around here!


We started out November with our wives trip. Always lots of fun and a nice time to get together with all of the other football wives and talk about, well, adult things. Our kids aren't with us and it is always fun to act like adults. Most of the time we end up acting like kids though.
They had these cool picnic tables that could swing on the FIU campus, so we sat there and visited with each other while we waited for game time. THis is one side of the table.

And this was the other side. Such a great group of women. I am so happy they are all in my life!

Morgan's class decorated shirts for their Thanksgiving feast at school. Happy Fall ya'll!

I, of course, had to make Skylar a shirt to wear for the Thanksgiving feast and spent WAY too long making it. But was pretty cute, so it was worth it. And maybe it will fit her again next year, so I won't have to make another one? Here's to hoping...but I'm not holding my breath.


Well, this is what happens when you are 3 months behind on blog posts. You have to cram a whole month into one post and do very little explaining. Sorry, but here are some of the pictures from our October adventures.
We visited the pumpkin patch with Morgan's classroom. Lots of fun! It was much warmer than it has been for us in the past, which was nice! We are usually bundled up in hats mittens, and our winter coats, so this was a nice change.
This year we were in shorts!!
Can't wait to compare her to next year and see how much she has grown!
Skylar too...

Bryan had a game on the 30th, so there was trick or treating for the kids through the tailgate area. The girls had lot of fun with all their friends dressing up and of course seeing Ace. Morgan was plenty warm in her costume! These costumes were great when we lived in the Rockies, but they are a little warm for the south. Tutu is so wonderful to make all these costumes-and she always does such a wonderful job!

We went to a Halloween party at the Athletic club that morning and got even MORE candy! Oh goody! The girls had fun!

And Morgan won 2nd place with her "Kung Fu Panda" costume!
