Pumpkin Patch

So every year all of my family here in town goes to the pumpkin patch together. We love going on the hay ride, seeing the farm animals, seeing one of the farmers (what can I say, he's hot!), and choosing the best pumpkins we can find. Here we are showing off our cute little family, this was unfortunately the best picture we had.
Hailey was handed this little pumpkin by her cousin Elisabeth and would not look any further. Whenever I asked her if she wanted to keep on looking, she simply would say "this is my favorite one". I didn't even know she knew the word "favorite".

The two men in my life: Man it's hard to get a smile from those two, but they still look so darn cute!

Mommy's little pumpkin: Hailey wasn't sure what to think when her grandparents put her on this pile of pumpkins. This was the closest thing to a smile I could get from her, though who can blame the poor kid, she had the sun right in her eyes.

Tagged? Why Not

So I'm still very new to this whole blogging thing, but I was "tagged" the other day and decided that I would go ahead and give it a shot. Sorry no pictures, but again I am still trying to figure all this out, and am extremely computer illiterate to boot. So brace yourself folks, here are seven interesting/unknown facts about myself:

1) I enjoy eating more than I enjoy breathing. Yes it's true, food is my passion, obsession, friend, companion, and overall love of my life. I used to say I would know it was really true love if I would skip a meal for a man...well Kelly, I guess you know where you stand. Ah, the poor fools in my past who simply fell short when compared to a whopper or ding dong, ha ha.
2) Feet are the anti-Christ! If you have feet, please keep your distance! Feet are quite possibly the nastiest part of the human body. Lets face it, feet are smelly, sweaty, hairy, often alien looking appendages that should at no time touch me. This is a rule at my house, though I'll admit it has given my husband the power to upset me at will.
3) Texan accent? Baby, baby. Ever since I can remember I have been a sucker for Texan accents. There is just something about a deep sexy Texan drawl that makes me weak in the knees. There was a quite unfortunate looking boy in one of my college classes, but every time he spoke let me tell you I perked right up.
4) Recipe obsession. One of my favorite pastimes is browsing recipes online, or in various cook books and magazines. I try to collect as many great recipes as I can. I'm sure this all roots back to my love for food.
5) Just say no to jean on jean. Why do people think this is OK? I'm fairly certain that jean on jean has not been socially acceptable since at least 1989, and lets face it-the 80's was a bad fashion decade. Jean on jean actually triggers something in my brain that causes extreme anger :) It just doesn't work people.
6) I love 80's music. I could listen to good old 80's music all day long. I realize I was very young in the 80's, but the influence of my older siblings music choices has always stuck with me. You gotta love that 80's beat.
7) I absolutely love Fall. There is nothing more beautiful than a mid-October afternoon, when the wind is blowing, and leaves are turning the most amazing colors all around me. I get so giddy this time of year, and it really does put an extra hop in my step each day.

Family Update

So now that the whole broken arm thing has passed, here are some fun things that have been going on in the Weber household...Our little Travis finally rolled over about three weeks ago, yeah for Travis!
I finally cut off Hailey's least the longest part of it. I can't quite bring myself to cut any more of her hair off. This was the before picture...The after picture wasn't much different so I didn't bother posting it.
Travis is beginning the teething process and is chewing on anything he can get his mouth on, his sister had a fit when she saw him chewing on her current favorite stuffed animal!
Hailey and cousin Ben are dorks!!! This is the two of them dressing as cowboys and cowgirls (I think it's obvious, but yes they dressed themselves, ha ha) This is by far my favorite picture of Ben, please notice the great facial expression and the ears being forced downward by the too small hat.
Those two have way to much fun together, and they frequently remind me why I never want twins (But those of you who are blessed with twins, I really am happy for you!)
