Getting ready for first official day of football practice...they go helmets only tomorrow so mouth pieces are a must. They have to be boiled in water for 30 seconds and then they bite down to get their impressions...that's it!

Last summer fun movie day...we usually go on Wednesday but this week I start back to school for teacher meetings on Wednesday so the theater was nice enough to let us come today for Alpha & Omega.

Remember the candy bar Whatchyamacallit?? Well now there's Thingamajig!! Pretty Yummy!


Saturday August 6, 2011 of my most favoritest stores EVER! I ♥ Lakeshore...I had to go in with a list, a plan and a budget!! I did stray for 1 item, but it was on sale so I HAD to get it!! I could have spent all day in there and spent a whole lot more money...but I did good...less than an hour and only 4 things...YAY me!

Since the store is about an hour away and close to my sister's house, we met up and went for some yummy fro yo after our shopping!! The cousins had fun even though it was only for a short time.

I too thought that was licorice hanging from the boy's mouths. Hahahahaha.

Ah- football season is here. Are you ready?

How is school going? Are the kiddos settling down for you?

Love the mouthpiece picture :)

Thank goodness I have brownies in the house or I'd be sending Mike out for a Thingamajig!

I love how your boys don't seem to mind posing for their pictures - they must love their mom a lot.

I can't believe you guys are already back to school, but I guess if I think about it ya'll are about three weeks ahead of us both starting and ending.

Great pictures, I especially like the one of your exhausted hubby, he must be a workin' hard!
