If you give a mouse a cookie!

Every year Mrs. Marsha has a contest to make a pumpkin into a book character.
The girls like to make one to enter so we try to participate every year.
(This year Lauren is too old to make one because she moved to the Middle School! (Tear!)
Caroline wanted to make a Mouse from the book "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie!

And she won 1st place in the Pre-K-1st grade divison!
Way to go Caroline!

Rogers Farm Field Trip!

Pre-K went to Roger's farm for a fall field trip to the pumpkin patch and see the animals.
We had alot of fun playing and the weather was could not have been better!

Not sure about this pose Caroline is doing?
Papa came on the field trip as Caroline's chaperone
(My class came too so I couldn't be a mom for long)

Love this picture with Papa...he is such a sweetheart!
So glad Jamie doesn't mind sharing his daddy with me!

Mr Rogers and Caroline with Papa!
Mr Rogers is a very kind man with a love for kids! So glad Mr. Rogers and his sons have a farm that kids get to go and see how things are grown and see and pet animals.
They had so much fun running around and playing
Waiting for a turn to ride the pony
Caroline love riding the ponies
They had stations set up for kids to shot a cannon, ride a pony, duck race, slides and lots more
The pumpkin patch!
Happy Fall Ya'll

My bones hurt!

This is coldest I have ever been!

I saw where the Blue Angels were coming to Jacksonville in November and I wanted the whole family to go to the air show! (I feel in love with the whole experience when we were in Biloxi in March and Caroline and I went while Jamie was in a tournament)

I packed for our trip and brought some pillows and blankets for our car ride.
(we love to sleep on the way but my husband always gives me a hard time on how much stuff I bring every time we leave the house) See I can't travel without a blanket for each of us and a couple pillows incase I want to take a nap! Ha!

Little did I know that we would need the blankets once we got there!
Oh and let me tell you we all checked the weather for Saturday on our iPhones and it said partly cloudy with a high of 60-65...okay so if we could have found the poor weather man, we all would have slapped him or kicked him! Jerry wore shorts and brought a light jacket
Luckily I did bring big jackets for the girls but with the wind 15-20 mph and the temperature 45 it was freezing!!!!!
Nana and Caroline bundled up walking to the entrance

The cold had not quite hit us yet!

These are about the only pictures I took
I froze quick and by the time we got through security and our chairs set up I didn't get up to take nothing!
Lauren was the warmest out of all of us but that wasn't saying much!
Jerry is laughing because he was checking the weather on his phone again!
Not even funny for the rest of us!
We are discussing that we heard the Blue Angels are not flying at 3:00 and they postponed it so we are having a quick family meeting to decide we can't withstand the cold anymore and we are headed to the car.

Oh I forgot to tell you when we went through the security gates they wouldn't let Papa in because he had forgot to take his knife out of his pocket. Well, Jerry said he would walk back and put it in the car...we waited and waited for him worrying he got lost or couldn't find the car. Meanwhile Jamie just kept saying the reason Jerry was so willing to take his daddy's knife to the car was, he was freezing and he got in it and turned the heater on full blast to warm back up! Finally after 45 mintues and 10 texts later we found him! He had been to the car and somehow walked past us to walk around the air show and check out the planes! Talk about ready to hurt somebody else...Yes! Jerry was next in line right after the weather man!

Now with Jerry with us! We went to get a hotdog and coke to sit down. By the time we stood in line and got back to our seats the hotdog was no longer a hotdog but a colddog!

On the way to the car we heard the blue angels coming down the runway!
We watched the show from the parking lot in the freezing cold! Nana and Papa watched from the car and we would walk and watch walk some more and stop to take pictures.
It was beautiful to see them fly and it is like I have said before so patriotic to me.
We went to eat at Magganios little Italy for dinner and came home.
It was so good to finally get warm and eat a delicious meal
We had a great day together even if we almost froze to death! lol

Soccer Mom!

This is Caroline's first year playing soccer!
Uncle Boy (Braley's Uncle) sponsored the team and he and his mom came up with the name "Snot Rockets" I will be honest....I wasn't ever fond of the name and it never really did grow on me but with soccer season being in the winter the name was fitting! lol

Caroline and Presley
(Cole even snuck in the picture)
Lauren and Caroline had the same colors this year! Too Sweet!
Caroline liked playing goalie!
Caroline's coaches...Mrs. Cati and Mrs. April
(poor baby was scared to death on her first game and threw up half way through the game)
You can tell in the picture she was sick :(
Sweet girl!! So proud of her overcoming being scared
The Snot Rockets!
(Still hard to say or type)
I took this picture at Caroline's first soccer practice!

Caroline had a great first experience playing sports and overcame being scared! We were all proud of her and she says she might play again next year...we will see!
