Because Annaliese is on the small side for her age, we had a couple warm-weather outfits that were too big for her until now. This little dress & hat is one of my favorites. Even though it is too chilly to wear the outfit now, that didn't stop Mommy from having a little dress-up photo shoot with Annaliese!

As an alternative to Halloween, our incredible church hosts a Fall Festival at Dragon Stadium every year. They have bounce houses, petting zoo, rides, food vendors and lots of games and candy. We bundled up and met all the grandparents for a fun night!

One of the outfits I received at my shower for Annaliese included a cute little bonnet. I was a little bonnet baby growing up - my mom dressed me in them often. I guess that is what they did with little girls before the elastic headbands and stick-on bows! So, when I dressed Annaliese in this outfit I felt a bit nostalgic!

Kimmy & I took my mom to Mamma Mia at the Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth for her birthday last month. Dale and Kimmy's boyfriend, Jared, joined us, while Bobby stayed at home with the kids (he's soooo not into musicals!). It was such a FUN show! And, I forgot how beautiful the Bass Hall is! I hadn't been downtown in a couple of years (yes, really) and the whole experience made me remember how much I love Fort Worth!

After what felt like YEARS, I am up and running again with a brand new computer! Woohoo! Thanks to Santa (Bobby), Christmas came early this year and we got to replace our old, slow computer.
I am now able to resume my blog posts! Yay! I feel like so much has happened with the kids in the last couple of months! It's amazing how quickly they grow up! So, I'll be playing catch-up over the next few days with lots of pictures, stories & quotes - check back often!
Thanks everyone for your patience! I know you grandparents and great-grandparents have been especially anxious to see some updates!
