The Very Hungry Caterpillar!

I haven't been very good at getting Brielle to the library lately but I'm gonna make it a point to go each week. She really enjoys it and it's good for her to be in a school type environment.
Every week they have a different theme.

In the middle of the class they get to guess what the special surprise is in the "surprise box" Can you imagine what kid was yelling out "RACE CAR! A RACE CAR!" haha. Remember the theme was food, it was a plastic pizza by the way.  She was way off lol.

She loves playing the puzzles and matching games on the computer and has conquered using the mouse!
We came home with several books and she really enjoyed the Hungry Caterpillar.
Somebody needs to get her that for her bday...just throwing out an idea : )

I found a cute craft to go along with the book and we just happened to have an empty egg carton.

Then we looked up metamorphosis online and watched some cute videos on it.

She was really really into it!
Gasp! It makes a cacoon!!??

Oh my gosh! A Butterfly comes out!!!

She was so excited about what she learned she had to show dad as soon as he got home!

It also came to me that Brielle can sort socks! Why not! Helps me out and gives her another little chore she can do! She's sorting Hason's socks for me. Such a good and willing helper she is!

Sherryann and James Visit!

We were so excited my middle sister Sherryann and her BF James finally got to come and visit us!
We did a little shopping of course at the Highland Village Square by our house.
Since the boys were so patient with us we took them to a local sports store they they could have some fun too.
Daddy was loving getting to talk to the employees all about sports.
We ate at Rockfish, next time I'm getting the pecan crusted tilapia like Shern, it was sooo good!
I thought this sign was pretty funny......

Bless their hearts for being patient with me.  Everyday half way through the day we had to go home so I could lay down and take a nap so I could make it through the evening lol.  They joys of the 3rd trimester.

Saturday we took them to the wildlife ranch we have around here.

This piglet was the cutest little thing ever! 

We got in line to right the mini tour bus and realized we should probably make b take a restroom break before getting on.  She was wasn' happy cause she thought she might not make it back in time to ride. (and I think she knows Landon doesn't get in a hurry for anything)  As soon as she finished at the pottys (which were pretty far away) she came bolting outta there. She wasn't gonna let dads slow pace slow her down haha.
AND SHE'S OFF...................

Poor little thing,  look at that concerned look on her face.


South American spitting camel.  When I showed B this picture she actually remembered it was called a spitting camel. Probably cause dad made a big deal out of pointing out how angry all South Americans are, even their animals ha!

Our favorite (creepy) camel.  He looks like a dinosaur!

And here's sherryann almost getting attacked baahaa!

Brielle was on cloud nine with her Aunt here!

Sheryl Ann's FAVORITE animal since she was a little girl!

She just about died that she got to pet the baby Joey!
 After the zoo we stopped at one of my favorite little gems I found in Denton!!!
They serve about 25 different combinations of Mac and Cheese! Does it get any better than that! I don't think so, except they do have a happy hour which I cannot partake in at the moment but will someday!

Landon's was some type of Southwestern/Mexican dish.

Mine pretty much tasted like a cheeseburger.  It had pickles on it!!! A pregnant woman's paradise I tell ya!  We passed them all around and tired each others and not a single one disappointed us!
We had a blast and it was so nice to have my sister here.  Now we just have to convince them to move here for good!

I Cut Off All My Hair AAAHHHH!

So for forever now I have been wanting to do something different with my hair. My sister Kasey and I talk about how all of our hair has been the same for the longest time and we always look the same in pictures.  She took the first plunge which gave me the courage to do mine.  I wanted so desperately to have it done with my hairdresser and dear friend Tana in Amarillo but it doesn't look like I'll be making it back there anytime before Thanksgiving.

It's just hair it'll grow back right!? Ha try telling my hubby that. 11 inches gone!

Ok so this picture makes me sad.  I think all us girls in my family look better with long hair for sure, but a change is nice.  I just think long hair is sexy, Short hair is sassy.  That's how I see it anyways.

Here it is....I cut off a couple more inches than intended so I'd have enough to donate 

I'm making a weird face in the left picture, and the one above, cross eyed almost ha,
but that's the best one I got ha.

I can't wait for the front to grow out some more so it will have more of a swing and be a long bob.

I'm still getting used to the color, but I love the cut! It's so fun to fix and easy!
Landon even likes it too, he says he's still trying to get used to it but likes it more than he thought he would.
But don't get him wrong, he will always be a long hair liking kinda guy. I was worried Brielle would be scared of me or not recognize me but she didn't even notice ha, all she sees is momma not hair or makeup or clothes, she thinks I'm beautiful the way I am, sweet girl.  I think the same about her!

Change is good!
