I'm counting it as my excuse...

 Story of my life...so behind on this blog!  Here's a quick catch up and I'll try AGAIN to stay up-to-date.  Ebby Lee striking a pose before school.
 Nixon being silly.
 A few weekends ago, Tab was working a football scrimmage and the kiddos and I met my friend, Erin, in Southlake for shopping/eating.  There happened to be an art festival going on with bounce houses and lots of fun kiddie stuff.  We hit it all up!
 It was HOT outside, but this girl was loving it!
 Our church did a Walk-for-Water event a couple Sundays ago to raise money to build a well in Sierra Leone.  Ebby Lee, Molly, & Nix were ready to walk!
 First swim of the season...many more to come!
 He wasn't feeling it.  That water was FREEZING!
 My mom came to visit this week.  When she's here, Tab and I request our favorite dinners she makes.  First night, Ebby Lee helped the chef make a delicious home cooked meal.

 Happy Mother's Day!  Tab is SO good at this gift thing now...ha!  Only took him 7 years.  :)  He was so sweet.  We went to church, came home for a quick lunch, napped, went out for pedicures, shopped, and then met everyone at Chuy's for a yummy dinner.  The perfect day!
 T-Nonnie was SO helpful this week.  She babysat, cleaned, organized, babysat some more, and cooked!  On Wednesday, we went to the park to walk/play/feed the ducks.  Ebby Lee was feeling BRAVE!
 Nixon...not so much.  I couldn't blame him.  I wasn't feeling it either.  All those ducks and geese flocking toward you and honking! 
 See what I mean?  There weren't just a couple they were SURROUNDED!!
 Thursday before school...cheese!
 Nixon and Ebby Lee went to swim with Ms. Sally this week.  The beginning of the week Nixon was a little shaky...crying, crying, crying.  He would always do what she asked, but he cried.  T-Nonnie and I had to hide out in the garage.  But...by the end of the week, this little guy was rockin' it.  Check out this jump...no hands!!
 Sister did AWESOME!  No tears all week.  I was SO proud!
 This is how Nixon ALWAYS came up out of the water...mouth open and a BIG smile!  ha!
 Ebby Lee swimming to the step.  Look how far back Ms. Sally was!  She did awesome!!

Here it is(sure you've seen it on fb by now), but my one and ONLY excuse for not blogging lately...
Baby Slaughter #3 is due on December 4th. 
The #1 FAQ...
Was this planned?  Yes and no...we wanted one more.  We had stopped preventing it so in a way, we were trying.  We thought it might take a LITTLE longer, but we are super excited and ready to meet this little guy/girl.  Ebby Lee wants a baby sister and Nixon wants to hold this baby!  ha!
