Halloween. Hmm. I don’t know how I feel about this ‘holiday’. Thankfully Carsyn is innocent and not interested in scary stuff.

Our church had a carnival this afternoon and all the kids could come to church dressed up.

P1050104Baby girl was an OU Cheerleader. Thanks Uncle Jerrye and Aunt Barby! She is adorable.


P1050103 Talk about special delivery. Daddy carried CarCar all the way back to the Tahoe on his shoulders.

We didn’t stay for the carnival. Baby girl was tired and clingy.

Park It

Saturday morning our little family of three headed to the park. It was a beautiful fall day and so much fun. P1050070Daddy helping baby girl down the first slide of the day. She was very tickled.


P1050073Here is momma going down the twisty slide with Carsyn. She loved it.




P1050077 She liked it so much we had to go to the higher slide. Such a big girl! She climbed all the way up by herself. She was brave enough to go down by herself, but momma was scared.


P1050085 Just a swingin’. Daddy pushed Carsyn for a long time. The she got bossy. She wanted momma and daddy to swing too.


How great is that face. She was loving it! Afterwards we went to Sonic for a slushy. Doesn’t get any better than that.

Hannah Banana


Big girl Carsyn eating her banana. She picked it off the tree and pealed it back herself. OK, that is a slight exaggeration. I started the peal back process for her, but she’s happy to try and finish it up.

Kissing Cousins

Family Ties

Carsyn and I spend the weekend in Oklahoma. We had pumpkin patch plans. MamMaw hadn’t seen Carsyn in forever. Gage is growing. It was time for a visit.

P1050062Um bite. Um bit. PaPa T has some good ice. It’s soaked in pink lemonade and Carsyn couldn’t get enough.


P1040994 Great Aunt Vonnie and MamMaw hanging out with Misty and Gagers.


P1040996 Carsyn snuggling with Granny between Misty and MamMaw.


P1040997 I can’t even remember what the drama was all about. No wait. I remember. She had NO nap!


P1040999 Gage is thinking, ‘You weirdo. Stop all that crying.’


P1050045 Yummy. Food. Uniting the cousins.


P1050046 Carsyn thinks she owns the place. Walks around all sassy and entertaining the family.


P1050055 Granny is all excited because she’s certain Carsyn just called her Granny.


P1050058Gager is like ‘What Up”


P1050060 Carsyn is helping Granny open cans and cook in the kitchen. Granny loved it and Carsyn felt all big.

Worst Pumpkin Patch Ever

OK. It’s not really the pumpkin patch’s fault. It was the weather.

Quick Story.

Here is how it started.P1050018

Here is how it ended.


The plan was to go Friday morning to the pumpkin patch in Cyril. It’s a smaller, family owned patch. Perfect for our sweet babes.

But it come a thunder storm on Friday. I guess October showers bring November turkeys or something like that. Saturday morning we decided to try again. We examined the radar and decided it was going to be east of Cyril.

P1050019 We got to the farm an hour late. Darn that hour. We would have been ok had we been on time. Apparently this far is technically east of Cyril. Where the rain was. Nuts.

P1050021 Sweet baby girl was ready. She saw a cat and kept calling for it. Mow. Mow (rhymes with cow. not row.)

P1050023 Finally the pumpkins!!

P1050025 Hold this cute little one. She’s a little unsure. It was dirty.


OK. Starting to get a little windy. There are a few rain drops on my shirt.


Granny wants a cute pic too. Carsyn is a little distracted.

P1050032 Carsyn liked the sheep and goats. As long as they stayed far away. Still windy. More rain.

P1050033 Only picture of the babies together. Not exactly the crisp fall day I was looking for. Poor baby Gage. He was NOT happy.


This was the last straw. We took this picture, grabbed a pumpkin and high tailed it back to the car.

P1050040 Yup. That’s us looking good after a fun day at the pumpkin patch.


Carsyn was concerned about Gage. Momma got him a bottle ASAP!

We had a first today in the life of Carsyn Reece Reed.

There was NO nap. Yes, you read right. It's as bad as it sounds. Carsyn and momma are visiting granny and papa t. Gage and misty were at the house and I guess it was too exciting to nap. She was up from 7:30-7:15 with NO nap. She was really such a sweet baby until the very end. Missouri scored a touchdown and it hurt her feelings. Lots of crying later, she finally gave up.

Strings Attached

P1040992Look what Aunt Misty found after nap time.



Apparently Carsyn woke up from her nap and found the thread in the sewing machine drawer. So much fun!


P1040984 This stuff was every where.



OK. I know her foot looks oddly colored, but I was trying to show you the thread in between her toes.


P1050003Here is the aftermath.  



Aunt Misty did a great job! Both babies had naps and then diaper changes.

Yummy Mexican


Look who likes Mexican food!

Carsyn likes some chips and salsa just as much as the next girl.


But she’s also decided that she likes lemons. Not really customarily know as Mexican food, but served at every restaurant in America with water.


She really liked the flesh of the lemon, but the rind was extremely sour and she made a hysterical sour face, but I couldn’t ever capture with the camera.


Gagers liked the Mexican place too. Won’t be long and he’ll be digging into the chips and salsa too.

Monday Motivation

I attended a Get Motivated seminar on Monday. There were a ton of big name speakers. Laura Bush. Troy Aikman. Zig Zigler. Terry Bradshaw. TRE ME2

This is where I sat. I took this pic about 7:30. The place was packed out a hour later. Don’t worry, this post isn’t really about the seminar.


It’s about me and the TRE. I took the train to Dallas. Yup. Public Transportation. That’s right. I care about the earth. Go Green or Go Home.

Not really. I had 2 main purposes.

1. Don’t drive to almost downtown Dallas.

2. Don’t pay $20 for parking.


Way to go TRE. You’ve completely redeemed yourself from the 2009 Red River Rivalry debacle. By redeemed, I mean I’ll never ride you to a OU-Texas game again, but I’m not open to other events.

Lake Quickie

Let’s just get it out of the way. We’re stupid. I know it. You’ll know it after this post.

Carsyn was sick Thursday and had to stay home Friday. She’s still not feeling better, but we needed to go to the lake. We needed to get our boat back up there. It’s been down here hanging out in a friend’s barn, but he needed his barn to make a batting cage for his daughter. She’s on a traveling fast pitch team and needs a college scholarship. Chain of events, I couldn’t be responsible for their first born not going to college.


P1040944So we loaded up Carsyn and the dogs and the boat and headed to the lake. 4 HOURS later. We arrived. OMG it was not fun. Carsyn was sick and just wanted to be held. Oh by the way. She had not eaten anything and didn’t even want her Sonic grape or orange slush.


P1040929 Each night she has about 1 hour of good normal play. After the Tylenol or Motrin kicks in. At this particular point she felt like everyone needed to be bare foot like her and her momma. Bare feet. I’m a fan.

P1040935 When she say Tony loading things up, she was ready to hit the road. She grabbed her bag and headed out.


P1040941 Carsyn really likes MawMaw and PawPaw’s golf cart. She climbed all over that thing and then made her daddy take her for a drive.

Because of baby girl being sick and the fact we couldn’t watch the OU game, we came home early. Never fear, the trip back was just as bad. But at least it was Saturday afternoon instead of Sunday night. Carl and Donna came down too. That was great. We were able to still hang out for the weekend. Thanks for coming!
