pumpkin patch

Molly and friend Addie had a fantastic time at the pumpkin patch. We rode a pony, and molly loved it. painted pumpkins, enjoyed the petting zoo, hay ride and maze...don't forget a trip to orange leaf for fro-yo!

fall fun!

Team papa

Grandma and Grandpa made it home to do our annual trip to missouri town. I have not written about this latest journey for my family, but here i go. Right after Molly's 3rd birthday my parents went to MD Anderson to get what we all though was a beign tumor in my dad's throat removed. What transpired after that was the biggest gut punch our family has endured. My dad was told he had cancer. To say we were all in shock would be an understatement. With no family history this came out of left field. That said, my dad is a fighter, he is a man that refuses to give up when times are tough, brave when he is not sure what is next...he is my hero and an inspriation. My mom is right beside him cheering him on and being his rock...she is the roots of this family. This will be a long journey, but we are a family and we will all support each other through this.

fall=cheering for teams!!

Not her first rodeo....

Molly was thrilled to be back at school. What a difference a year makes. She was thrilled to be in the blue room, our friend AnnMarie is her teacher for now. Baby Brody will be debuting by years end so she will have some one else in due time.

Mimi comes to town

Yes, i am 6 weeks behind...but i will try to catch up.
Mimi (joe's mom) came to town mid august to celebrate Molly's birthday. She threw a party at Uncle Jay's. It was great to see everyone, and Molly had a fantastic time.

Our sweet Molly turned 3, and all i can think is where did the time go? She is such an amazing little creature. She is sooo smart, can carry on full conversations, and comprehends everything you are saying. Her verbiage is on par with many of my pre-k kids at school. She is bright, kind, loving a little sassy and full of personality. Her teacher had told me she is certain Molly will be a star, as she is the center of every room....

Joe and I are so impressed with the way she processes (ahem manipulates) but we have her card.
For her birthday we went to the "sprinkle" park, her request. We also made chocolate, vanilla and strawberry cupcakes. Again, in sprinkle theme. It was a fantastic party and we were honored to have so many friends celebrate the day with us.

Last Day Summer School/b-day

Being as Molly has an August birthday we celebrated at the end of summer school.
She is so much bigger then when she first started last year, and loves school and her friends. She felt like such a big girl sharing her cupcakes that we made together.
The bear is blizzard, her first build-a-bear. She went and got him for her birthday with daddy.

Molly's 3 year pictures

What better place to "try" to get Molly's 3 years photos?! Molly does not pose, it is more of a catch me if you can game.... :)


The littles made a song called, "best day ever..." it was so fitting and we sang it every day on out trip. Here is Molly singing...then annie sings her yoga song, but look in the left corner as molly disappears into the bubbles. They had so much fun taking bubble baths.

Surfer Girl

When we first arrived to the beach Molly was overwhelmed with the vastness of the ocean. The first few days she only wanted to be on the sand, but she warmed up quickly. Surfing and boogie boarding or "belly" boarding as molly called it became fast favorites. Along with me carrying her out and letting the waves "smack our booty's," she would sequel in delight.

Family pictures, beach style

We took sunrise beach pictures. :)

We had such a fantastic time in Texas, hands down our favorite was the ocean, and of course being together. We did try to do the beach early then again late day to avoid peak sun time. Molly also enjoyed moody garden... the texas albums will be a hodge podge of great times!
