My very talented friend Amy Barrett is making these adorable onsies and shirts for fall! And get this, they are only $15 dollars if you order in September, and $20 if you order in October. I am going to post a link to her site! She also does a pumpkin and a Frankenstein for little boys! They are soooo cute. Just thought you all might want to check it out!!

Once a year we make our annual pilgrimage to what is known as the county fair! When you really stop to think about it, it is kind of a crazy thing! You pay money to put your most prize possessions (your children) on rattle trap rides run by people who you are not sure are even lucid! As your kids laugh and scream you hold your breath and pray they will come out on the other side unscathed! We are still lucky in that Layne and John-Isaac still like the “kiddy” rides and are still afraid of the big rides. I hope that holds out for a while! They rode all the rides they wanted to ride, we visited the petting zoo, walked through the exhibits and topped off the night with a fried snickers and funnel cake. Thank goodness it only comes once a year!!
Linley is 8 months old today. I think I enjoy her more everyday! She is truly the best baby in the world! Every month now seems to bring more and more changes. Even her looks seem to really be changing lately! She can sit up so well now that I can leave her and know she is not going to fall over. She is not crawling yet but can roll anywhere she wants to go in the room. She can now hold on to my fingers and pull herself up! No teeth yet, but I think she may be working on one. She is eating very well. Her favorite food is banana, I can mix it with anything and she will eat it! She loves her brothers and they keep her very entertained! She laughs at them all the time! Now that I am working 2 days a week again at the preschool, she gets one day with her daddy all to herself and one day with her Dede. She loves it! I can’t wait to see what this next month brings with it!
Her favorite toy!! She already loves shoes!
Playing with Layne.
We woke up this morning thinking we would be getting ready for church but to our surprise found out everything was canceled for the day due to Ike! We had trees and power lines down all over town. We were without power ourselves for about an hour. Who knew that Ike could make it that far inland and still be classified as a tropical depression?? We had a few limbs down in our back yard but no damage. The house down the street had a tree fall on their carport. Crazy, Crazy!!
We had our second home game as the Red Wolves this weekend. We started tailgating around noon and had a really great day despite “Ike” starting to move through! We only had one very brief shower during the game. The game was disappointing in that we lost by 3 points after fumbling a field goal attempt and throwing an interseption with only 59 seconds left on the clock. Bummer! Oh well, you win some, you lose some!

We took a bucket of toys for the kids to play with. As it turned out all the kids wanted to play in the bucket more than playing with the toys!
Okay, I will be the first to admit I was not happy with the decision to change the name of our precious ASU Indians to the Red Wolves. I seriously had my doubts! After all I have been going to “Indian” games since I was a baby. I remember when they had the horse that ran from one end of the field to the other every time they scored a touchdown! The picture above was taken at one of the last “Indian” football games last year. As a person who is not a fan of change, I just couldn’t imagine getting behind anything else! But, I am happy to report that the Red Wolves have won me over! I even own a T-shirt!!
We were excited to attend the first ever Red Wolves home game last Saturday. We started with a wonderful tailgate with family and friends, and then it was on to the game. There were a lot of firsts! Red even brought out his new friend Howl the wolf. Layne cannot wait to meet him! It was a great game. The Red Wolves scored the most points ever scored in a game since 1917! WOW! It was a great day and we can’t wait to do it all again next Saturday!!
Linley is ready for the game with her red football!
The boys enjoying the game.
The final score!!! OUCH!! And to think ASU didn’t even throw a pass after half time!
Every year the night before the first ASU home football game Jonesboro closes down two blocks of downtown to have a huge block party/pep rally. It is always so much fun. There is free food and all kinds of free ASU stuff. The band, cheerleaders, dance team, and Red (ASU’s mascot) are always present. This year everyone was pretty pumped since ASU had just beaten Texas A&M in an upset. And, with the school changing their name from the Indians to the Red Wolves there is just a lot of excitement in the air! It was a great family night out! We had a great time howling it up for our Red Wolves!
