Pumpkin Decorating/Early Bday Celebration

Sunday, October 18, 2020
Yesterday we went to mom's house to decorate pumpkins and celebrate Jacob's birthday a little early. It was sooo good being around all my family at one time! Y'all we haven't seen everyone together in a very long time and it was much needed. Everyone is growing up so fast it makes me feel old. The kiddos had a blast obviously and their pumpkins all turned out so cute.

Life lately has been pretty busy as usual but we've managed to squeeze in some down time and really soak it in. We wrapped up Fall football and have now entered into Winter season and are officially a Pat! Jacob is super excited to be reunited with his buddies. The weather has been a bit of a tease as in we got one "cool" front and then we're back into the upper 80's. I am ready for the cooler temps and to be able to wear a sweater!! The boys and girls have been doing a lot of fishing any chance they get. School is going great and everyone has adapted quite the routine, thank God. We celebrated Cori and Jeremy's twins this past weekend with an outdoor baby shower. It was so great seeing everyone and catching up with family. I miss seeing everyone all the time.

She loves her Zeke. 

Cousin Time

Sunday, October 4, 2020
We've been trying to spend as much time as we can with the boys because they are growing up so fast. It takes a lot of work being this cute I tell ya! Jace is so adorable and man does he give you baby fever. He's such a good baby and is always so happy. Jaxon has entered into the two's and well those speak for themselves. LOL. But for real he's just as sweet and is such a good big brother. He adores "his Addie" and just loves playing with the kids.

Zeke Life

Saturday, October 3, 2020
Zeke has quite the life if I say so myself.. some days I wonder if he enjoys it or if he just puts on a front. LOL. The kids keep him pretty busy and are always up to something. Katelynn got a new skateboard and she swears Zeke loves to ride it with her. I will say it's hilarious to watch and he stays on so he must not hate it.

Jets Football Game

Monday, September 14, 2020
Football season is in full swing and we've been playing double headers ever since the season began. The weather this past weekend though was way better than pasts and it's starting to cool off in the great state of Texas and by cool off I mean not 100 degrees! Hello September, we welcome you and the cooler weather. Jacob played great and had two interceptions the first game and a couple of touchdowns. They ended the day with one win and one loss. We are now half way through the season which is just crazy to me, it feels like we just started. I guess I should bust out the Fall decor before Christmas comes upon us!

First Day of School

Tuesday, September 8, 2020
This year looks a lot different than pasts but the kids were just as excited for their first day of virtual school! They have been out since MARCH which still blows my mind when I think about it.. we're already in September. Talk about an extended Summer which is probably every kids dream if we're being honest! I cannot believe we have an 8th, 6th and 2nd grader on our hands. They are really making me feel old these days. We started our morning off just like in pasts with our "first day of school" pictures and breakfast then it was time for everyone to jump online and get their day started.

Fall Football- Jets

Monday, August 17, 2020
It appears football season is in full swing but not without a lot of doubt and fear. Things lately have been far from normal with COVID-19 and honestly we were originally going to hold off on Fall football and pick up in Winter but plans changed last minute. Jacob's played with the Giants for the past three years but the head coach decided it was time to move on and the team just kind of crumbled from there. My fingers are crossed though for a comeback in Winter because I know a few of us aren't too happy thus far going our separate ways. This opportunity for Jacob came up with a team that had no QB and the kid has never missed a season yet so we took the plunge. I will say he's getting a lot of experience under his belt which is never a bad thing. He's going to have to really step up his game with this team and it will challenge him which is nice.

Fishing Adventures

Sunday, August 16, 2020
Last night had all the feels.. family fishing adventures at it's finest has truly been something I've come to look forward too. I love that the girls get in on the excitement as well and yes, I do too! The boys love bringing us along and it always becomes quite the competition. LOL. Addie's favorite part is the worms obviously. Jacob won the biggest catch of the night and Addie won the most fish caught. Then I was behind that with the second biggest fish, dad was next and then Katelynn with zero catches. Poor girl caught a ziplock bag if that counts. Ha! Always a good time.

Happy 13th Birthday Katelynn

Friday, August 14, 2020
I CANNOT believe my baby girl is now a TEENAGER!! It just doesn't seem possible but I guess it is. It seems like just yesterday we were bringing her home from the hospital and were nervous as all get out. Oh Katelynn you are so loved and you have made us such proud parents. You are so thoughtful, kind, and caring. You are a great big sister and role model to the others. I hope you always know how much you are loved. Keep doing you and chase your dreams.

She was beyond excited for this yard sign and it truly made her day!
