Last week, I was in LA for business from Monday thru Thursday. Travis took such good care of the girls while I was gone.

I got home late Thursday night. Friday morning, we got up and got the kids to school. He left mid-day to go hunting because...well...he earned it!

Friday night, the girls and I headed to Hot Springs. I was EXHAUSTED. But, of course, my mom and dad got up with the girls Saturday morning and let me sleep. I slept until 9:30! It was so nice. We spent the day watching football, eating and napping.

Saturday night, mom, Emma and I headed to Little Rock for the MILEY CYRUS CONCERT (insert scream here.)! We ate at Macaroni Grill. It was yummy. We ordered smothered chocolate cake for desert. My mom and I got two bites each and the rest was demolished by Emma!

We couldn't take our cameras into the concert, but let me tell you...there were a BAZILLION 5-10 year olds running around screaming, jumping, going crazy for Miley. Emma was right along with them. She had SO much fun. (I have never felt so OLD in my life!).

While we were gone, my dad kept Catherine and Hannah. They were going to carve a pumpkin, but when my dad got Catherine to sleep and Hannah bathed, Hannah said "I just wanna go to bed, Daddy Brooks." So, they laid down in his bed and feel sweet!

Sunday, we got up and headed home. Travis's birthday was Sunday, but he chose to hunt a little later than usual (which was just fine with me). So, we gave him his gifts and cake on Monday night. Emma got Travis a Razorback pullover. Hannah got him the Band of Brothers series and I got him a cake. We had already taken him shopping for TONS of new hunting stuff, so his birthday gifts were few and far between.

The quote of the week comes from Hannah. We were eating dinner for Travis's birthday and the conversation went like this:

Emma: How old are you, Daddy?
Travis: How old do you think I am?
Emma: 17?
Hannah: NUH UH! HE'S 8! HE'S 8, EMMA!

Little Banana boat was certain that her Daddy was 8 years old and no one will tell her any differently!

It has been wild and crazy around my house and I have been such a bad family photographer lately! But, we have Halloween this weekend and family pictures. So, don't give up on me yet!!!
