Fort Worth Fun!

Last Wednesday, Mom picked the kids and I up and we headed to Texas to see our favorite Hezzy Girl and Jasey Jase!!!  Oh my goodness, we could not have had a more wonderful time!!!!!!!! I wish you could have all seen Savannah's face just LIGHT UP when she saw Hezzy!  
She is already asking when she can go back to Hezzy's house.
Hopefully, it will be very, very soon!!

Here is Heather at her desk, where she plays Scrabble works!!

Of course, Heather has a tape dispenser in a black stiletto!

The Housing Office "Heather-style."

Bubs is ready to sign up for Seminary!!
{Or so Grammie says.  :) }

While waiting for Hezzy to get off work, we made a fort in her apt!!

We also bought her some fall mums and made her an early birthday cake!
Black Forest Cake...  YUM!!

Surprise!!!

More, please.  :)


Of course, I brought shorts and tank tops the day it turned 30 degrees in Ft. Worth.
Ughhh.  Thankfully, I had ONE set of warm clothes for the kids!  #smartmom
Here is Vannie, all bundled up, and ready to go to the playground with Aunt Hezzy... 
obviously, after indulging in some cherry filling.  ;)


Jaseeeeeeee and Vannnnnnnnn!!!!!
Isn't this sweeeeeet??
{Side note:: Conversation today after church::
Me:  Savan!  Did you have fun at church today??
Van: "Yes!!!  I played with Luke!!"
Me: "Ohhhhh, is that your little boyfriend??"
Van:  "Nooooo!!!  Jase is my boyfriend!"  Ha!!!}
They are bff.


MY MOST FAVORITE PICTURE EVERRRRRR OF THESE TWO!!!!!!
Seriously, how perfect is this??

How come all the boys get the long eyelashes????

Savannah found Heather's calculator...
and made me use it to call Caillou.
 {That terribly, annoying boy on tv that all children just seem to LOVE!}
This is me telling Caillou that it was time to go to bed.  Immediately.  ;)

Heather telling Caillou all about her RING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  :)  :)

Very proud of her noogies.  Take a guess what that is.  HA!!

Hahaha, I wish I had recorded the WHOLE time Savannah was SPITTING all over the cake to blow out the candles!!!! It was HYSTERICAL!!!!  And no worries - we had already eaten our pieces.
Are you sure YOU won't have any...??  ;)


The fresh whipped cream was her favorite part. 

Grammie with her babies and the Seminary in the background!
{Remember how I said I had brought them each ONE warm outfit?? 
Haa!  This is called, "Making Do."}


Ahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  While we were there, we got to see Heather and Jason's potential future house for after they get married!!!!!!!  How darling is this little cottage???
What a PERFECT starter home!  And don't you LOVE the tree in the front yard???
Ahhhh, sooooo cute!!!!

 Beautiful backyard!!

Showing us around!  
Everything is getting repainted, so it will all be fresh and new!

Haha, Andrew looks so gangsta!!!

Hezzy and maybe her new kitchen...??????  :)  :)

I wish this was the view I had from my laundry room!!

Cuties!!

Don't they just go together???  I think they even kinda look alike!!!
Is that weird???  ;)

We were sooo excited to get to see everything!!  

This just may be the threshold Jason will carry Heather over...  EEKS!!  :)

 Yaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!


I can't tell you how wonderful those few days with them were!  I didn't even stop long enough to get my camera out for most of the time we were there...  I was simply soaking in every minute with these two! We seriously never put down our coffee mugs while we talked about their wedding, their future together and Jesus {hey, mom was there. What did you expect??}  ;)

Heather and Jason are coming in this next weekend for her birthday, so we are seriously ANXIOUSLY awaiting that!!!!  Savannah asks almost everyday when they are going to get here. :)

Ohhh!!  And more exciting news...

Our official date to close on the house isssssssssssss:::::

Shut up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We're totally freaking out, too.

Where The Wild Things Are

If it wasn't crazy enough here before, 
we just got a little more WILD!

We tromped over to Gone Wild Safari in Tioga!!!!!  
Some sweet moms from our church got together with our own wild monkeys and braved a trip together to the safari!  It was a HOOT!!  We had such a fun time and if it wasn't so expensive, we would go there every day! However, since that would be udderly ridiculous, we made sure to milk every moment the time that we were there!!  Pahaha.  There is no stopping me now.

Hay!!!  This is my horsey, Andrew!
Stop foaling around!

Mooooooove over, Justin!  
Vannie is Meggie's FIRST true love!  :)


I'm going to momentarily pause the animal puns...
but don't have a cow.
Ahhh, love date night with the girls!!
{Shanny and Alyse - you were missed!!!}


Ready to take a walk on the wild side!

Holy cow!  This is a big bunch of bull!

Wade can't get away from the Alaskan moose.  
He is branded for life.

It's a trough life.

My herd.

It behooves me how I got this adorable man to marry me!

Jen and Joe.  ;)

Rylie was so brave!!  

Savannah was a little more cow-ardly.

The Dairy Queen.  {Sorry, it's the best I had.}

Looks like it's time to put Jen out to pasture.

Yee haw!!! It's Bambi!! 

Feeding Bambi was such a fun ideer!  Rylie loved it!!


Kinda cool.  Kinda scary.
It's a jungle out there.



They say that the grass is always greener on the other side.
I say there is no greener grass.

Udderly adorable.


Ireland is not happy about my cow jokes.
But I'm not stopping until the cows come home!

It's a feeding frenzy!!
These animals were in the moooood to eat! 

This little guy was walking right tortoise!!  


A llama and a mama
with a boy in his pajamas.

A few tricks...  lots of treats.
This is just a few of our church's patch of kiddos!

Picking out their pumpkins to bring home!
What a ball!!

Little ham.

Cow-lie.  :)

What a precious moo-ment.
{But Wade's eye in the back is seriously freaking me out!!!}



Hay!! What's got your goat, girls??

My, my udder half, and our babies.


What a roaring good time!! 

My sweet pumpkins.



After an udder day in paradise, we went to Aunt Jenny's house to play!!!

We had baths and then I found a box of Callie's clothes and I thought it would be cute to dress them all alike in these onesie's!  Andrew was thrilled!!!!!  Haaa!
{Please disregard Savannah's toenail chewing. 
I wonder who she learned that from...  JENNIFER!!!!!!!}

The girls trying to tickle Andrew!  I'm sure he loved it.  :)

The next day, Nathan and Jen brought home
THEIR NEW CAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Isn't it stunning?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?  Yaaaaayyyyyyy!!!!!!!!

The girls testing out their new seats!!

What a wonderful week!!!  The day after this, Mom picked up the kids and I and we went for a little drive... to Forth Worth, Texas!!!   We spent a few days with Hez and Jase and ohh myyy goshhh, it was SOOOOO perfect!!!  It included lots of eating out, drinking coffee and wedding talk. 
 Every girl's dream.  :)
Pics coming soon!

And I'm kinda sad the cow puns are over.  

Love to moo all.
