The New Playground

Monday, August 31, 2009


We spent today at a new playground with the Sheeps. BooSheep had tried it out once before (there are two geocaches there! - we only found one so far, though) and we all really enjoyed it.

The huge Treehouse was three stories tall with beautiful slides. And there were a ton of other new types of toys - some even Boo and I hadn't seen before!

We had a picnic in the large pavilion (with both adult and kid-size picnic tables).

Baby Sheep and GO shared a swing and enjoyed seeing each other.

Boo and I sat on the lowest level of the Treehouse with the baby girls, while the boys played around us.

It was a great morning! I love spending time with the Sheeps.

Growing Caterpillar

Thursday, August 27, 2009


GO is getting better about sitting by herself in her crib. She's still not sleeping there all night yet, but most of her daytime naps are in her crib and she starts out there at night.

She is really enjoying her three favorite toys: Abigail Adams (Abby), Cowgirl Pony and her Reindeer.
She's also enjoying "reading" her books like her big brother Caterpillars. (Not that B10 or CW are eating their books!)

GO is growing up so quickly! I love seeing her personality develop.

I have the greatest Caterpillars in the entire world!

Church Blast-Off

Wednesday, August 26, 2009


Our Church had their "Blast-Off" for the Wednesday Night Activities tonight. Both Caterpillars made rockets to have shot into the air.

CW went first and LOVED seeing his rocket shoot across the field and towards some people. (Luckily, no one was injured.) B10's went up into the air, and I caught the really cool photo of it with an airplane. (One of those - totally random but awesome - shots.)

The Bubble-Man was out, letting everyone play with huge and tiny bubble wands.

Plus, there was juice and ice-pops to go around. GO hung out with Cookie and watched the commotion. It's hard to imagine she'll be in the middle of it next year!

Geaux Tigers! (And GEAUX Mummy!)

Tuesday, August 25, 2009


So, again, I'm not a seamstress, but with Queen's help I've finished my second outfit for GO.
It's an LSU Tigers outfit - romper and top set. I found the fabric and the pattern and just KNEW it was perfect for the little Tiger Fan.

You can tell she's enjoying it...well, she's also learning how to crawl and the bows on her shoulders were VERY distracting.

Thanks to Queen, I've finished TWO of the three outfits I purchased items for. YAY!

She's "Growing" Up!

Monday, August 24, 2009


I use the term "growing" loosely, since she's not exactly getting any bigger...(at 7 months, those are still 0-3 month clothes she is wearing...)

GO is, however, learning how to go! She's so close to crawling and gets further along every day.

Plus, she's learning how to stand on her own. Both B10 and CW were walking before a year, so I wonder if she'll follow in their footsteps!

Go, GO, go!

Garden Girls and Geocaching (Part Deux)

Sunday, August 23, 2009


Garden Mum and I took the four littlest ones geocaching again - trying to get in as much as possible before she moves to North Carolina.

We found some tiny ones and some big ones.
We even stopped at the Cutie and grabbed some yummies!

I LOVE geocaching with friends. It would be perfect if we could get BooSheep to come out with us one day!

Cute Cousins


The Garden Girls came to church with us (along with the Game Family) today. When we got back to our house to eat lunch, we realized the three older kids were all matching!

Garden Mum and I just had to get photos of B10, Princess Flower and CW together.

It's hard to believe they don't share any DNA!

TWO Bike Riders!

Saturday, August 15, 2009


CW is FINALLY riding his bike! He's doing an awesome job, and basically picked it up all by himself.

He spent a couple of hours riding a friend's bike (which was smaller than his), then went into the garage, grabbed his bike and out he went.

He hasn't taken on any of the big hills, but it's great to look out the window and see B10 and CW riding together.

I can't wait to go bike riding as a family together.

Garden Girls and Geocaching

Wednesday, August 12, 2009


We've been introducing the Garden Girls to geocaching and today Garden Mum and I took all 7 kids out.

It was such a blast to watch the Caterpillars and Princess Flower find some on their own!

At the end, it was really hot...but Happy Hour at Sonic, so we stopped by to grab drinks for everyone.

GO slept most of the time. But we'll have her excited about geocaching, yet! (She does love the "nature" part!)

Crazy Cookie

Tuesday, August 11, 2009


My Mum (Cookie) has a thing about putting stuff on baby heads. I don't know why...but I know she's been doing it since her first grandson was born almost a decade ago.

Here, in no particular order, is what she did to GO today (please note, in the interest of child safety, Queen is RIGHT next to GO at all times).

Poor baby girl... ;)
