Another weekend of fun in Bellville!

On Saturday after lunch we headed to the cotton patch. Mary got to ride with Cousin Greg in the cotton picker. She also got to sit on the 806.
On Saturday night we headed to the Austin County Fair Shrimp Boil and Kick-off Dance. Mary made lots of new friends and had a ton of fun dancing.

We got to do the chicken dance!


Then Sunday morning we headed to church. Afterwards, we attended the Bazaar. Mary had lots of fun bouncing in the bounce house, "fishing" for toys, picking lollipops of the tree for prizes, eating cake and snowcones, and listening and singing along to the great music. She took a good nap on the way home today.Well, the fair starts on October 10 and we are ready. William and I are both taking off Thursday and Friday to come to fair.

Prayer Request

Hello all,
Our friend and neighbor, Charmaine, is having a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery today. This morning the surgeon started at around 10 and the first portion of the surgery ended late this afternoon. The second portion should be done around 11 tonight. The family is hoping to see her around midnight. She has a 2 1/2 year old boy, Hunter. Please keep her and the family in your thoughts and prayers. Thanks!

We were going out tonight to find Mary a new pair of cowboy boots for the fair season. William thought he better try on his new pants with his boots to make sure they would work. He put on one boot, no problem. He tried to put on his second boot and something was wrong....he took it off and reached in and pulled out the CAMERA!!! Yeah! Now I have finally downloaded the pictures from our last trip.

For those of you that have heard Mary talking about the Terra Gator, here is a full picture of it. Granny climbed up there with her this time.

And, we did find her a pair of brown cowboy boots tonight. She was so excited, as soon as she got them on she took off running and said, YEEEHAAAWWWWWW!!! She is ready for the upcoming fairs! We'll break them in first with a little boot scootin' at the shrimp boil and kick off on dance next Saturday.

Camera?? and catching up

I hope everyone has been doing well. With the start of school, time has flown by! I can't believe we just had curriculum night.

Anyway, last weekend, Sept 7-9 we went to Bellville to visit Granny and Pa-Pa since he had completed a chemo treatment earlier in the week. As we were leaving I took a sweet picture of Aunt Na-Na holding Mary (Mary said she was a baby). After I took the picture we were ready to hit the road back to McKinney, and suddenly I had no idea where the camera went! We still have not found it in our stuff, hopefully Granny has found it by now at her house.

William picked up Mary today from her sitter (which she is finally getting used to the new routine and not balling her eyes out every morning as I'm leaving!) and he took her to McDonald's for a happy meal. She was so happy tonight, much different from last night when she kept having to return to time out for hitting her parents, the dog, and the wall.

This weekend we plan to relax and do some stuff around the house that needs to be taken care of. The weather has been nice and cool! Yesterday morning the temp was in the upper 50's!!!! Fall is coming!!!!! and that means FAIR TIME!!!!!! We are so excited about the new fried food at the state fair this year....fried cookie dough! We already have Mary's first Wranglers for the fair and some cute rodeo/western shirts. We are still in search of some boots.

Have a great weekend!
