We have a superstar in the house. Peyton is the superstar for her class this week. We had to make a poster to take to put up in the classroom. I struggled with trying to figure out how much I should do and how much she should do. I think we came up with a happy medium. She wrote her name and I typed out all of the information she wanted and put pictures on them so that when she presented her poster she wouldn't need anyone to read it for her. She cut out her squares and then we glued them to the colored paper and then to the posterboard. She is very proud of it. Nothing on the poster surprised us except that when she grows up she wants to be a nurse and a weather girl. Huh?

Every Tuesday night Brian, Haley and I go to Weight Watchers and Marcus watches all four girls. I stop by and pick up kid's meals somewhere for the kids. Last night we went to Jack in the Box and they put the meals in buckets. We are so excited. Every school day, Landree gets upset that Peyton has a bucket and she doesn't. Problem solved, she had a bucket to take to school today.

Now surely no one expected Landree to only carry it.

We have our Halloween costumes ready. When we are at Disney World we will be going to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. Peyton is going to be Violet from the Incredibles and Brian and I are going to wear Incredible T-shirts. For actual Halloween Landree will be Baby JackJack from the Incredibles but we are calling her Baby LouLou. We tried the costume on her and she loved it. She then decided to help me make the pizzas for dinner. As you can see she has discovered all the great uses for stools in the house.

Dr. Nana and Nurse Peyton

I know it has been a week since I have updated my blog. It was a busy week. Brian has worked 16-18 hour days this week and even had to go in after church today. The girls went to the dentist and I was really impressed with her. Only in Texas would you go to the dentist and sit on a saddle to have your blood pressure taken. Moma has a meeting in Austin tomorrow so she has spent the weekend with us. We had 3 couples over last night for an LSU-Florida watch party. Brian had the family room decorated with everything in the house that had LSU on it. One of the couples graduated from Florida so needless to say it was a nail-biter.

While I was mopping the floor on Friday, I stepped on something. I looked and couldn't find anything so I went back to mopping and forgot about it. This morning my foot started hurting. By lunch time it was really hurting so I asked Moma to take a look. After digging around, she couldn't find anything but she did have a great helper.

Peyton was worried that Nana was going to hurt me and she would hold the light and then close her eyes and look away. Her nosiness would get the best of her and she would have to look again. I am walking around on the outside of my foot and if it is not better tomorrow I guess I will have to go to the doctor because 2 weeks from today we will be in Disney World and I am not having a bad foot at Disney World.

NEWS ALERT- Landree finally said please, well it was fee- close enough and I'll take it.

I got a wild hair to make Peyton some Disney clothes and didn't know how I was going to get it done. It was perfect then that Nana was coming. Here is a shirt we made, I cut and wonder undered everything to the shirt and she sewed them.

Nana's Birthday is on Tuesday so we surprised her with a cake. The Happy Birthday letters are candles (didn't think to take a picture before we lit them) and Peyton wrote Nana.

Tomorrow, Kacy and Abby are coming to spend the day with us and Peyton is so excited. I hope that will help her when Nana leaves. Last time she was distraught when Nana left.
