Cheers Bella & Tony

The week before school started Bella was in a 3-day mini cheer camp at the high school.  The last part of the camp was performing Two Bits before the first home football game last Friday.  I thought it was pretty cool because the game was against our biggest rival-Brazoswood.  However...after 6 years, we lost to our rival in the last 4 seconds of the game with a field goal.  Ugh.  Don't even want to think about it really so I will share my pictures of the cutest 6 year old cheerleader I know in Angleton.

She really did good this year. You almost can't see her from where we were standing. This was the best her dad could get with his camera.  Our angle was bad.  She was behind the cheerleader in all of the pictures I took.  

That was her waving for me to come get her after they were done.  

Posing for pictures

I just want to kiss her face...

Our mommy-daughter picture afterward.  Always a must :)

She was loving on me during the football game.  Couldn't resist another picture.  Love this girl!

By the is the 2nd day of September so guess what that means?1?  It means today is my brother's birthday!!  He turns a very young 51 today.  We're all getting together this evening for a birthday dinner at Giovanni's which will be so fun and so delicious.  

Hey...y'all have a great hump day & Happy Birthday Brother!!!

September Is Finally Here

Hello September....

Its so good to see you again.  I've missed you.  You are the first of the "ber" months, and the start of my favorite time of year.  You are the month my home begins its transformation from summer to fall and pumpkins begin popping up everywhere.  I have a few new things to add to my decor this year that I'm really excited about.  I do hope you surprise me with something wonderful, like an extra early start to the cooler temps.  That would be amazing.  I also have some new layering outfits I have pieced together just waiting for their debut.  Don't be shy now, bring on the pretty fall colors and cooler temps!

Yours truly,
Michaela Anne :)

Back To School

Yesterday was the first day of school for us.  Christopher left at dark thirty for cross country practice so I didn't get a picture of him.  Had every intention of taking a picture of both the kids when we got home but it was late when we made it home and I had lots of paperwork to fill out.

Still loves holding my hand :)

Right after I took this last picture, it was time to head to her classroom and that smile disappeared.  Out came the tears and clinging to mommy for dear life.  I walked with her until I got to the front door exit and then had to let her go.  Ugh, I HATE leaving my children in tears.  I know she was fine 5 minutes after leaving me but still.  Turns out, she did have a great first day but the best part of the day was seeing her after work and the big hug I got.   Actually, she does this every day but yesterday was extra special.   I think she will be awesome in 1st grade!  

Hope y'all had a great Monday :).

Cross Country

Saturday Christopher had his first cross country meet in Cypress.  Bella and I made the trip Saturday morning to go see the stud run.  My only suggestion is there be a map on a board or something handed out to parents so they know the route the kids will be taking. I lucked out and stalked followed another family around that looked like they knew where the kids were running.  I wanted to be able to scream at cheer for my kid as he ran by, show my support and all.

almost looks like he's biting his nails because he's nervous...

Lined up ready to go.  Not sure what he was pointing at.  
He didn't remember either.

Get set...

 Here he comes...

There he is...

 And there he goes...

I tried to get in place to catch him sprinting on the last leg.  Y'all, I don't know where this kids gets his energy to sprint at the end of a two mile run but he does.  Its like he has a switch he flips and bam, he's gone! And let me tell you, its really awesome to watch.  I was trying to get into a good spot to snap a pic of  him coming to the finish line.  Momma was too slow.  Here he is after.  14.27 was his time.    

And his proud little sister.  Good job bubba!

After the race, Bella and I made our way back home and stopped at Cracker Barrel for lunch.  We ended up actually having breakfast and it was so good.  I have to tell y'all a quick story about our time there.  We were seated at a little 2 seat table.  Bella was tired and hungry so she was sitting in my lap, not facing the table but the aisle.  I felt like she was sliding down so I went to pull her up.  Well I didn't realize she was partly under the table because when I pulled her up she let out a scream  and just started crying.  Y'all, I thought the two ladies seated next us were going to call the police and cps on me.  I felt so bad, I just kept apologizing and rocking Bella telling her how sorry I was and I didn't realize she was under the table. Those ladies really knew how to give the evil eye.  I just knew they were going to haul me off.  And y'all, they watched us the entire time we were there eating our breakfast.  I was so ready to get out of there.

After Cracker Barrel (where I purchase my daughter a new stuffed animal for nearly dismembering her), we may or may not have popped into Home Goods and picked up some Fall stuff.  I will neither confirm nor deny it,  just saying it might have happened.

Y'all have a good one!
