Happy Grandparents Day!!

Today is GRANDPARENTS Day....yes, many of you believe that this holiday is just yet another Hallmark holiday, but I think it is great day to celebrate family and GRANDPARENTS. We did call my grandparents and Sam & Nadia to wished them a happy day. We were able to spend Grandparents Day with my parents. They came to our church and then we spent the afternoon in the Stockyards. It was a lot of fun!! We started with lunch at The Love Shack.......ever heard of Chef Tim Love? He is a native Fort Worthian and is an amazing chef. He owns 2 places in the Stockyards and we enjoyed some good eatin' from his burgers and shakes place.
After lunch, we shopped around a bit and mom & dad were able to get a few Christmas presents out of the way. In the Stockyards, they were having an old timers car show...it was fun to walk around and see all the fun cars....I think it took Dad on a trip down memory lane to high school. We made it a point to be at Stockyard Station when the train pulled in from Grapevine. We were able to see the vintage train engine in the turn around. Hudson was so excited and loved it!
Here are a few pics to commemorate GRANDPARENTS Day!! Ella enjoyed french fries and a shake for lunch...the little girl can put it away!!

First Day of School

Last week Hudson and Mommy started their first days of school. Mommy's was a little rough, only 4 office referrals and 3 suspensions- 2 of which were the same kid (he was on at school Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday and won't be returning until Wednesday). Needless to say, it is going to be an interesting year for Mommy.
Hudson start school at my parent's church. He is only going two days a week. Here he is on his first day. He was very concerned about his lunch and making sure it got to his class. He was a little timid at first, but Daddy called during the day and they said he was doing great!!
Here are some cute pics from the first day!!
Mrs. Gerber his teacher....he was showing her his lunch.
Thinking about going to play with the other kids....notice, still holding his lunch.
After his first day, we went and celebrated with dinner with Nana & Papa. Ella has started posing for her pics....it is hilarious!!
After many attempts, I finally got one with her eyes open!!
Also, our first attempt at a ponytail!!!
Hudson, Nana & Papa at dinner.
Happy first day of school Hudson!!! I know you are going to have so much fun and learn lots this year!!
