Baby shower

Angie The Amazing threw me an awesome baby shower a few weeks before Mabry was due to arrive. I was surrounded by the marvelous women in my life. I told stories and laughed for hours. It was so much fun!

Halloween and the Pumpkin Patch

My silly halloween boys! Riley insisted on being a doctor again this year. We are encouraging this desire! Brock wanted to be a pirate. I got the outfit at the store but all the extras came from a timely birthday party of one of Brock's classmates.

Still catching up

Soccer time! Riley moved up to 6 year old soccer this year and did amazing. The difference a year made was huge. And he had a great coach. I'm even considering signing him up for Spring season. He's really good! Four year old soccer, on the other hand, was a joke. It was complete chaos from start to finish with lots of screaming and tears from the kids. Total insanity! Photobucket

The reason I've been sucking at blogging lately

Photobucket

We're having a baby!

And it's a GIRL.

Will I have to rename my blog? Or will she just be my sidekick on this land of Mars? She's due December 6, 2012. And now that we're over the SHOCK of producing a girl child, we're getting excited about her getting here. We're even going to paint and decorate the nursery for her. And it's all The Guy's design. Blue skies and green hills with flowers and a neat tree decal and plenty of pink accents.

Less than 3 months to go!

Building

Grandma and Grandpa got the boys Lincoln Logs last Christmas and they love to play with them. One Father's Day, the boys begged Daddy to build the building on the "map".Photobucket

Figuring it out.

Not to be outdone, Riley creates his own buildings.

Putt Putt at Pirate's Island

A Gulf Shores tradition that my brother and I grew up doing. We had to make a little trip to play putt putt at the pirate ship place.
