Before all the events of the concert we went together to the Dallas Arboretum - which I really think is one of the girls most favorite places to go - they get to run in the grass, play in houses that are replicas of houses long ago, eat a picnic lunch and just have a great time! This time of year there they have all kinds of things for kids - hay bail maze, face painting, crafts and more....check out our "scary" tiger and cat.....what fun! It's getting late - I will uplaod more pictures of the girls tomorrow...night!

On Friday after we got home from school and work it was so nice that we went outside for a long time....ofcourse only after the girls got themselves "dressed up" to play! They were having a "performance" outside for me so, I thought I'd share it with all of you. They were having such a great time! And I loved it! I am so thankful for cameras that are also a video camera so I can try to "bottle up" the innocence of the girls to show them when they are older some of their favorite things to do - play princess!

It has been a really busy week here at the Gibbs house and yes, it's only Wednesday! On Mondays Sydney goes to gymnastics and loves it! Her favorite thing is the trampoline! And who wouldn't love that! Tuesday wen went over to Aunt Jill's house for dinner - she is leaving on Friday for a 10 day trip to Italy! Her and a friend from Colorado are going and they are going to have such a great time! Sad I'm not joining them...take lots of pictures! Tonight I stayed pretty late at work - lots to catch up on - it was very productive so that helps having to stay late. When I got home Sydney was on the computer and Neal was watching the debate. I asked Sydney if she'd finished all her homework which she was very proud to shout "YES!" She did have one more row to complete and the video is the result.....can you believe that she is barely 4 1/2 yrs. old and she is learning to write words! I was talking to her about once you learn all your letters they get put together to make words and then before long she'll be able to read books! She got very excited about that, ran to her room to get a book to read before bed and off she went....calling for me the whole way to come read her the story! I love it! I try to cherish these moments because as my friend Joanna said just yesterday they won't last forever! Yes, in only 10 short months Sydney will be starting kindergarten! I don't think I'm ready for that one! Enjoy the rest of your week - it's nearly the weekend!

We had a great time! The girls call it the chickiwawa" movie! so cute!
Aunt Jill came over this morning for pancakes which was great to see her - since she was out of town last weekend we'd not seen her in nearly 2 weeks! She's also leaving for vacation this coming weekend for a 10 day trip to Italy! I could have been going....bummer I changed my mind. next time!
Sorry - not very eventful today...maybe tomorrow will be more exciting.....enjoy the rest of your weekend!

I love Fall and all the fun that it brings! Today we took the girls to "Owen's Farm" where they had hay rides, animals to feed, pumpkins to play with and run around and hot dogs to eat for lunch! The girls had a great time! They wore themselves out (atleast for a little while). Then tonight after dinner they got to paint little pumpkins - they love that! The weather here is finally beautiful - we may not get any change of color on our trees but, the next month or so will be some of the best weather we have here in Texas and I'm looking forward to it! Happy Fall Ya'all!

Just to clear the air !-------
In regards to Jodi`s childhood laboring,,,,,She was never forced to work--co-erced, perhaps, bribed, maybe, but always rewarded in ways she only appreciates now !!
Yes, the picture is from last year but, thought I'd add a picture of my Dad!
Love you Dad!
