Pumpkin Patch!

Today we went to a pumpkin patch just around the corner from our house. It was so much fun! There were pumpkins dressed up as all sorts of famous characters from the wizard of oz to star wars. Felicity's favorite part was picking the perfect pumpkin to take home with us.

 She found her favorite!

Wesley Sheppard Steely

Welcome to the world baby Wesley! Felicity and Josephine were so excited to welcome their newest cousin. So much love to go around, we are truly blessed in deed :)

 Aunt Laura got to swap babies for a while, I don't think Josephine minded. 

 What a cutie pie!!!
 I love Felicity's smile in this picture.
 Wesley was being a little camera shy and decided to cover up his face. 

My purple girls!

They are too cute!

UT game

We try to go to at least one game a season, however due to our growing family size, we might not be able to keep up this family tradition, unless someone wants to donate tickets to us. :) Felicity loved walking around campus and taking pictures before the game. During the first part of the game she was pretty scared because of the loud noises, but eventually she warmed up and had a blast. Josephine was a trooper and made it through her first UT football game like a champ! The cherry on top was that the longhorns won!

Nautical Baby Shower

This weekend I hosted a baby shower for my sister-in-law who is due in a few weeks with a surprise! Her nursery theme is nautical, so it was really hard not going too crazy with all of the cute nautical stuff out there right now. We had a great time and she got a ton of gifts and diapers, I think it was a success!

 New favorite thing to have at showers, so tired mommy's don't have to hunt down your address to write thank you notes!

 No party would be complete without a few cake pops!

 These little sailboat jello cups were super easy, cute, and delicious!  

 Malia's cookie lady did awesome as per usual :-) 

Can't wait for you to be here baby Steely!!!

Felicity's Butterfly Birthday Bash

I still can't believe my little girl is 2 years old now! We had a super fun butterfly themed party for her, last Saturday. The best part of the party was the massive bounce house water slide, which I think Kenneth had more fun on than Felicity. Unfortunately, since it was a water party, I decided to wear my swimsuit and cover up... not realizing that it would cause some pictures to be kinda inappropriate. So there's the disclaimer, I wish I could go back in time and just wear a dress, oh well. Other than that the day was great! Here are some pictures from the day.

 Bump buddies!

 Woah. Look at that back swing!

 These girls were serious about designing their own butterflies!

 We gave Felicity a Minnie Mouse bike, I think she almost dropped to the floor with excitement. She didn't want to get off and had everyone push her around the whole house.

Perhaps the biggest smile, however, was reserved for her new baby cousin, Jude. She loves him so much!
