26 and Never Been To The Zoo?!

Kaytie and her BF Zac came to visit us a couple weeks ago.  I don't know about them but I had the best time.  It was so laid back and nice to get to see them and their fur babies! We ate, sat in the hot tub, went to the zoo, shopped, kissed on some doggies,  watched frozen and enjoyed each others company.

Hason is wearing as size 3 to 6 months vest from Janie and Jack.  You had one job Janie and Jack and you were way off considering he is in 24 months clothes!

I was tickled at Brielle that day, she was acting so big.  She decided to take her purse with her.  She wore it like a big girl and stuffed it full of necessities like cars for her brother.  She's just the best.  So responsible and grown up all the time.  Except for her dramatic girl moments, she's easy as pie.

  Zac is 26 years old (I think) and has never been to a zoo!  What?!  So we just had to take him, and what better zoo to start off with than the Ft. Worth Zoo as your first!

One of these babies was born the day after Hason the same year, how cute is that!

Kaytie loves penguin kisses.

After the zoo we walked a bit in downtown Fort Worth, we ate at Razoos a Cajun restaurant.  Landon and I love Cajun food!

What do you do when your 16 month old is starving and the corn is too hot........

After dinner Kaytie and I wanted to go visit one of our fav stores Lola.  They were having 50% off with an extra 50% off.  Holla!!  We stopped at the ice cream place next door for dessert as well.  This was the best pumpkin, cookie, chocolate chip, I can't remember what else was in it ice cream I'd ever had!!!!!!

Our cups runneth over with love...........

Mean muggin....

I don't care what side of the family I'm with, I love spending time with all of them!

A Couple of Hams

This girl loves to talk, sing and perform.  She has made our fireplace her stage.  She has us sit on the couch and watch her preform her cheer leading routine and sing whatever songs she's learned in school.  She even makes some up.  Love her and her outgoing spirit!

Beautiful handsome has to do everything his sister does too.  He just bounced up and down haha.
Aren't his PJ's handsome! Looks like something a distinguished 50 year old man would wear to bed lol!

He has learned to say CHEESE, but more like SHEESE and pose for the camera.  

Any warm day we get I am having them spend it at the park playing and getting all the energy out, I know all to well that soon we will be cooped up for Winter.  One of my most favorite parks is the one that belongs to our Market Street United haha.  It's small so Hason can't really get hurt, it's enclosed so they can't escape and the grass is fake so they don't get that dirty!  I love the fake grass and think everyone should have this in their yards, it would sure save a lot of water!

Really?  I'm gonna worry about him and his shenanigans the rest of my life aren't I?

Everyday Life

This post will only appeal to us cause it's nothing but the Gann's doing life, but I want my babies to remember these times  just as much as the adventurous ones ;)

I forgot to post this picture of this little stinker the day after Halloween, he sneaked into the living room and ate some candy much to his delight.
He's been so picky lately but the past few weeks have been great and he's eaten all his green veggies! Lord I hope this continues!

Just in case he doesn't get his recommended amount of veggies I make his kale, spinach, cucumber, fruit smoothies.  At least he drinks those...

We spend most our evenings after dinner playing board games or cards.  Brielle loves it and it gets me and Landon outta playing  barbies or dress up. 

When he isn't trying to steal our game pieces or cards the is off doing his own thing. 

Mostly playing with cars though, he will empty out his entire car box looking for the perfect ones.  He will inspect them over with great detail lol. 

 I think he likes white cars the best.

What else do the Gann's do when they are bored in the evenings but measure the size of our heads.  It's an ongoing debate on who has the bigger noggin.  Landon still wins. 

This is a sneak peak at my Christmas stockings I FINALLY ordered.   Landon and I have had our two since we got married.  Even since Brielle was born I have wanted to have custom ones made but never got around to it.  They are expensive but totally worth it.  I pondered making my own since that's what I normally do but just wasn't feeling it.  I'm glad I waited till we had Hason cause now they will all match and go together nicely! Can't wait to get them in!

On November 5th I found the most precious gift waiting for me in the kitchen.  Landon is so incredibly good at remembering special days.  Even if it just a kiss and a "14 years ago today" type of comment.  This was the day we met 15 years ago.  I am so blessed.  That was one of my most favorite days of my life.  We both remember it so vividly too. 

My friend Natalie invited me to happy hour one Wednesday.  We decided this should be a monthly occurrence.  I totally agree.  I love spending time with her for one she always looks so cute and two she loves to talk about clothes with me! 

I don't think I've had sushi since I got pregnant with Hason! That's been two years now!

He does everything but sit still and listen when it's library time...

They bloomed so beautifully!  

Hason and I made a trip to the outdoor mall a couple weeks ago and I was overjoyed at the sight I saw!

This one got the Toys R Us gift magazine in the mail.  She literally circled EVERYTHING!  The funny thing is I still don't really know what to get her for Christmas cause she really doesn't want any of it.  She isn't much into toys, but more into crafts and creating.  Most toys we buy her just sit there unplayed with.

Bath time tea party.....

Hason cracks us up in there.  He holds his little cup so tight and dips his hand down into the water with lightning speed then brings it back up to drink as fast as he can.  We got it on video, had us cracking up.  I'm so grossed out he drinks bath water!  But what do ya do, I'd rather have a non screaming child than take away his cup.

Ignore the ugly wallpaper, that is was not of my choosing. 

Honey bear helping me make soft pumpkin cookies, I make these every year during the holidays, they are delish.

He is so bad!  Climbing up there to sneak cookies.  I laugh at him all the time cause he knows and can do so much but yet he is still so brand new! He's not even a year and a half yet.  

This one sure loves to play tea party.

Landon surprised us on Sunday with popcorn and a movie.  He takes good care of us.

All I need is on that couch...

And when we make it to church early once in a blue moon we get to eat breakfast there.
