Tide in Texas, visits with grandparents and more....

September was a great month for the Websters. Most days that we weren't working you could find us just like this. Hanging out in our hammock and enjoying the stillness in the midst of crazy busy routines.

The kids neighbor and best friend Kinley spent the night with us the first week of school. Rob and I heard noises at 10:30pm and found Kinley and Will upstairs playing with trains. Ummmm... how incredibly awesome is this?

The kids made pancakes for the adults the next morning. This getting older thing isn't half bad.

My parents came to town the first weekend in September and we were so excited to have them here. They hadn't been to Texas since late March so we were thrilled to have them visit. Whenever my parents come we have to go to Downtown McKinney and a trip to our favorite candy store is in order.

We spent a Friday evening at a minor league baseball game. Go, Roughriders!

And then the very next day it was opening day for the college football season and Alabama was playing their opening game in Dallas. This was Alabama's third time playing here in the past 12 months. I'll take it! Several of our dear friends from Montgomery came out to the game and they spent the day tailgating at the Websters. Look at this beautiful sea of crimson.

We had a babysitter stay with Lainey and the rest of us headed to the game.

Roll Tide!!

We had a great time and Bama won so, even better!


Hey, look who has a birthday in September?? Happy Birthday, J. Ro!

We didn't do too much on Rob's birthday. We were still resting from the Alabama game, but we had a great low key day just swimming and hanging out as a family.

Will started playing soccer again and Coach Rob once again led the Cougars bravely into battle

We cheered on our friend Taylor in another children's theatre production.

Some days we did nothing. And we took away electronics. So the kids built their own city and named it Overland. Here is the ribbon cutting ceremony.

And there was a pretend wedding. This is Will's face when we told him he had to kiss the bride.

This is just my opinion, but the flower girl stole the show.

Fall is coming!! Hooray!!

A few of the neighborhood kids came over during the Alabama game. Not a good thing to do. So I sent them outside and told them they couldn't come in until they had built a rocket ship out of cardboard boxes. Lazy parenting disguised as creative parenting. Win/Win

We checked out the new Cowboys practice facility. It is less than 10 miles from our house.


Rob wanted to hop in this picture, but I wouldn't let him.

College spirit day at school. 

I was put in charge of our Building Better Moms group at church. This is the only picture I will post because it really consumed my entire month. But I have worked hard and I am praying this year is a success for all of the women involved.

There is no rhyme or reason to this picture. Just Lainey. Being a gecko. Because she wants to.

We went to the Plano Balloon Festival where Lainey found a giant gecko. My child isn't right in the head.

Our 3rd year in a row going to the Plano Balloon Festival. It is so nice when you've been somewhere long enough that things start becoming traditions.

What a great kick off to my favorite season, Fall!! It's the most wonderful time of the year.....
