Oh Christmas Tree

We had a family outing to the Christmas Tree Farm, and it was fun!  Candy canes, runny noses, and a few tense moments putting it in the stand straight- Family Traditions :)  The Morphew kids enjoyed being out there, and so did the Basses.  We all decorated it, and I think we've lost around 5 ornaments total this year, but considering their ages I'd say that is a win!  DF said it's the prettiest tree he's ever seen, and since I've gone back to the family tree of sentimental ornaments, I'd agree!  This is what childhoods are made of, and family weaves together their story.  I'm enjoying watching it all!

Thanksgiving at Waters Edge

We had our first Thanksgiving in our new home, and we really really enjoyed being here this year.  It was fun, laid back while buzzing with activity, and cozy.  Just how we hoped our home would feel.  I still have a "wish list" of things to do (trim to paint) but that takes time and this house feels more like home with each passing day and holiday and memories made.  We are thankful this year for many reasons, that's for sure.

Meme and Grandpa, Mammers and the Morphews joined us for Thanksgiving this year.  It was delicious and the kids really enjoyed playing together. The girls got a chance to go out on the canoe, DF enjoyed passing the football, and we played our first ever game of Thanksgiving Charades.

I am thankful for these people and time spent with them!

Nurse Nora

Grandpa has called Nora "Nurse Nora or Nora the Nurse" since she was born.  Well, today she became Nurse for a day.  It was career day at school and she chose to be a nurse.  It was that or a teacher or a cheerleader or a mommy. :)

She had a parade at school and this girl loves to dress up.  She was was the first one dressed and ready this morning!  I hope she does become a nurse, or a doctor so she can take care of me!! She will be great at anything she chooses, that I am sure of!




Cowboys Game!

DF and I both had a first this weekend, our first NFL game!  We went to Dallas to see the Cowboys play the Ravens.  It was a great game and a LOT of fun.  We met Uncle Jase and Yaya and they hooked us up with VIP status, and wristbands to the owners lounge where we had free food and drinks and even got to meet some players after the game!  DF was in heaven.  Franklin got to go see his cousin, Carolyn and that was fun too.  It was such a neat experience and we had one happy little boy!

Halloween 2016

Happy Halloween from Savvy Shields (Miss America), a Jedi Knight and a Puppy Dog :)  It was a wonderful holiday, with lots of fun, friends and candy.  AND, Savvy Sheilds posted a picture of Nora  that she drew hearts on her social media, Instagram story!  Nora was THRILLED, and the Savvy obsession has only grown.








Mammers goes with Nora on her field trip to the Pumpkin Patch

Nora's kindergarten class had a field trip to the Pumpkin Patch, and Mammers got to join her on the fun!  I heard they even went down the big slide together!  I think they had a big time and made some new memories together, we are so fortunate for the wonderful grandparents these kiddos have!

DFB's Birthday Sleepover

Since we moved in on DF's birthday, he didn't get a party this year, but he got to have 3 friends spend the night the week later.  We had pizza and cookie cake and Franklin took them to Fun Trackers for acrade games and bumper boats.  DF said it was the best birthday ever!  He is such a great kid, and we couldn't love him more!  He has given us 8 blessed years with him in our family.
