I Couldn't Resist!!!!

So I'm pretty obsessed with making my house smell good. I love Bath & Body Works candles and wallflowers. I have them all over my house. My favorite scents are the warm fall scents. In fact, I use them all year round. The point to all this is that I was invited to a Scentsy party. They are plug in wax warmers. I went to the party just to check it out. I really didn't think I would buy one since I have my wallflowers and candles. But I smell all the scents and look at the catalog and I think it's a cool idea, but still not sold. And then I saw this....

I couldn't resist!!! :)

I actually like it!! I put it in our basement and it smell so good!!!

What can I say... I'm a sucker for the longhorns! :)

What We've Been Up To

I'm a little late on this, but Marisa and I caught a nasty bug and it's taken me all week to recover.

Last week Jackson finally went back to school. It has been a very long summer. As much as he said he wasn't ready, I think he was.

He is growing up so fast.

This past weekend was Army's first home football game against Hawaii. We attended the AD's tailgate before the game.

I didn't take any pics inside, but it was pretty nice. Maybe I'll get some this weekend.

Reyno and I before the game started. It was a beautiful sunny day.

The USMA parachute team. They are awesome to watch.

Bringing in the game ball.

Mo and Jackson getting ready to cheer on Army!!

The Corp of Cadets
Reyno is back to work. Since he is still on crutches(for the next six week), he can't get around very fast. These are his wheels for games days

It's so fun to ride in!! :)
That's all for now. Somebody is turning 42 tomorrow!!!

Happy Birthday Jackson!!!

Twelve years ago today, in a big pink hospital in Hawaii, my baby boy was born!! What an amazing day. Jackson, you have brought so much love to our family. You have such a kind heart and you are the sweetest boy I know!! :) I can't believe you are twelve. The years have just flown by. I love you so much!!
Since we haven't been here long and Jackson still hasn't started school, we had a family day.
Reyno and I took him bowling today and then we had dinner at home tonight. I made steak and baked potatoes (by request) and a cookie birthday cake..

I couldn't find the birthday candles, so we improvised.

Today was also Marisa's first day of school.

Every year I always take their pictures in front of a tree. This year it was in front of her car. And then it hit me, this was the first year of her life that I didn't drive her to school on the first day.
Wow, when did all this happen???
I am back from my blogging hiatus. We are almost done with unpacking. Normally we would have been done by now, but one of us (Reyno) had an accident that involved a big TV and the stairs!!! So we are on hold for awhile until one of us (Reyno) gets better.

It's good to be back!!!!!
