Surgery and Pumpkin's

Well first off let me tell you about my most recent news, last week I woke up with absolutely terrible pain in my abdomen and back. I was up all night and thought a few times about going to the ER but instead decided to tough it out. However, I knew something was really wrong so I went to the urgent care that day and they set up an ultrasound for me because they thought it was something with my gallbladder. So I went and got my ultrasound and told the technician that I thought the first time I got an ultrasound would be because I was having a baby but instead of a baby I was having gallstones! Then next thing I did was head to a surgeon to talk to him about what I needed to do. There is no other option but to take out my gallbladder. I have multiple gallstones and I couldn't hate them more! I will be having surgery this coming Wednesday so prayers are appreciated. I will be out of work for recovery at least a week and a half. I have been in pretty terrible pain since my last attack and can't really eat much more than soup and crackers so I'm hoping I make it until Wednesday.

In other news my niece Emerson came over to our house a few weeks ago and her mom wanted me to take some pictures of her in her outfit so here they are. I know I'm biased but she is just too cute!

I love this picture such a sweet moment.

Then we went to the pumpkin patch to take pictures...some are quite funny.
Such cute kids!

This girl did not want to smile!
Then she changed her mind
Kaleb on his horse Sugar
Avery on his horse Princess...we were lucky that no tears were shed because he got the horse named princess. While they were waiting in line he just kept saying "I better not get Princess" haha...we all thought it was pretty funny though!

Avery's pumpkin
She couldn't decide
Kaleb really wanted this one...and tried to pick it up multiple times
But he decided on this one instead
I love their faces they were pretty fed up with pictures at this point!
Climbing all around little sister.

Another Etsy Update!

As I mentioned in an earlier post my brother has his own Etsy shop...he illustrates greeting cards. His Halloween greeting cards are now on sale. So go to his shop and take a look.

He is in the process of creating holiday cards and canine cards. He did a card with my precious dogs on the front which I absolutely is a perfect example of their personalities! Here is a picture of the card:

He also does custom orders and would love to create something for you for the holidays or a custom card of your precious pups! So don't hesitate to contact him with your request (on the right hand side of his Etsy page you can click where it says request custom item)! Tell your Friends!

Fall Fun!

I love is my favorite season for so many reasons. This fall began with an exciting new addition to our friends, the Blankenships, family. They welcomed a new baby boy, Barrett, into the world on Oct. 1st. Barrett was 3 weeks early and was completely healthy and beautiful. We have seen him a couple times already and can't wait to watch him grow up. He is adorable. We were able to take him his first pumpkin today...we'll go ahead and say he liked it but really he could care less. His mom, however, was very excited to have Barrett's first pumpkin. Sadly, no pictures yet. Hopefully soon!

On Oct. 2nd we went to the Dave Matthews Band concert with Alec's sister and her husband. We thought it was great although I was very curious as to who was smoking the pot near us.

Oct. 3rd our friend, Sarah, from high school got married. She looked beautiful. It was nice to see some old friends. Again, no pictures.

Alec was in Dallas all last week for work so I went to stay with my parents. I love staying with them. They take such good care of me, do my laundry, cook me meals, make my lunch, take care of my dogs, etc. It makes Alec being gone a little bit easier.

Today we ripped out all of our summer flowers and planted fall flowers. It was sad to see my beautiful flowers go but I love the mums, pansies, and cabbage that I planted today. I will post pictures soon.

Then we went to the pumpkin patch and ate at Rons's...nothing like a great bowl of chili on a crisp fall day!

Looking for the perfect pumpkin
I love all the colors!

I love the lighting in this picture!

Alec kept trying to pet the goats...they wanted nothing to do with him
