Fall Weekend Perfection and Beyond

We had a great weekend. The weather was gorgeous and we took advantage of Travis staying home instead of hunting.

Friday night, I went to Rachel's for the Favorite Things Party. She found the idea on pinterest. Each person picked out their "favorite" thing ($6 or under) and brought 5 of them. We did a gift exchange and each person walked away with 5 gifts. It was so fun!

Saturday, the day was beautiful. We managed through the Razorback game without having a heart attack. So, we took the girls to the Pumpkin Patch.

First stop was the corn maze.We let the girls choose the what direction we went at each turn. It was crazy how many times we walked in a circle. Travis and I were cracking up. After about an hour, we thought they FINALLY found the exit, only to realize we were back at the entrance. We called it quits after that.

(Hannah kept asking what happened if we never got out. Travis just told her, "It's a good thing we have all this corn to eat!")

Next we went to the petting zoo to see the goats and sheep. The girls had a ball feeding them. The animals LOVED Catherine. We couldn't figure out why they were all sticking so close to her. Then, I heard, "MOMMY! NO DOAT! OFF MY SHIRT!". A goat was eating the "hay" off of her scarecrow on her shirt. Everyone around us was cracking up.

Once Catherine's scarecrow finished with her hair cut, we got in line for the cow train. While we were waiting, I attempted a couple of pictures of Travis with the girls. This is what I got...

Finally, it was the girls turn. They were SO excited that they got the bouncy carts. After buckling them in, we watched them drive away around the corner. When they came back, they were all smiles!

We tried to walk down to the pumpkin patch, but it was starting to sprinkle, so we hustled back to the car and headed to dinner. We met Travis's mom and Aunt Linda for dinner. It was so good and we enjoyed visiting with them.

Then, we were running some errands and Catherine saw some boots like Emma and Hannah's. She HAD to have them. She wore them home and even kept them on with her PJs. It was hilarious. (And...she has worn them every day since!)

Sunday was a pretty lazy day. We skipped church, (shame on us!), and just spent time at home. The girls and I let Travis have his birthday presents early and enjoyed just playing outside and being lazy!

Monday, I picked Emma up early and we went to the eye doc to pick up her glasses. She was so anxious and was really dreading having to wear glasses. But, she looks ADORABLE! (Now...cross your fingers that she doesn't lose or break them.)

Today is Travis's birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TRAVIS!

I love you so much. You are the love of my life and my best friend. I cannot imagine life without you. You have my heart, just like you have since we were in high school. I hope you have a wonderful day! You deserve it.
