just a little Halloween....

 LJ - neon nerd
KD - bee
Watkins - power ranger
Phelps - witch
 Some little boy of mine (not naming names) did not like his mask, 
but he agreed to 1 picture for his momma. :)
KD and her BFF (Haley) the smurf!
cuteness at its finest.

my 2 little Indians.

my 2 sweet little Indians had the cutest program at school.
Look close and you will see they both LOVE to perform.


way back in October, we had the most fun at the corn maze with the neighbors!

I am thankful.

I am thankful for these four precious smiles and their daddy.
I love them with my whole heart!

a few facts.
- Watkins cried the whole picture session.
- Phelps had some major eye infection going on during this picture session.
-Tracy (the photographer) is an amazing photo fixer obviously.
- She probably is questioning my mothering skills after that session.
- I LOVE this picture and the many others I have seen and I haven't seen all of them yet!
Happy November!

pUmPkInPaLoOzA 2011

Fun night was had by Miss Neon girl, The Bee, The Witch, and The Ninja!

my blondies

and their momma!

future MSU cheerleaders

Tailgate to these 2 means playing with their babies and practicing their cheers all day while the bulldogs play!
Sweet and cute girls.

bUlLdOg cousin fun!

Football season always means lots of cousin fun.
They LoVe the pallet parties with tons of giggles, and this morning I suffered through a NO hot water shower.  BUT, yes people we made it to the tailgate by 9 with all these girl Dumas cousins in tow! 

from left to right.....
KD, Ruth Emmon, Onsby, LJ, Anne Watkins, Marganie, and Phelps

yes, poor Watkins was very out numbered!

maroon and white game

my favorite taligate girls!
take note.  
Viv does know what colors she is supposed to wear, but she chooses to not follow.
I guess we should just be glad she doesn't wear her red and blue. :(

KD's obsession

I am pleased to announce that I have my very own extreme couponer in house.
Our brown-eyed girl can't wait for those coupons to come in the Wednesday and Sunday paper.
Yes, people I make the grocery list and she matches the coupons up with what we need.
She even has her very own coupon binder!
KD did not inherit this organizational skill from me....promise.

Love my KD and her coupon self!

what am I going to do....

when Little Miss Priss won't let me dress her (and baby) like this anymore??

the gRamMy's

LJ helped present the FUMC church youth Grammy's.
She did a wonderful job, and had lots of fun!

Sweet girl is getting so big!

bLaCk out gAmE

Another fun filled football weekend with family and friends!

(p.s. It is hard to dress kiddos in black so they just went with the famous maroon!)

wHiTe oUt.

FoOtBaLl season has arrived!
The Dumas clan had a great time getting the season started off right tailgating for the White Out game against LSU.  
Too bad the bulldogs did not come away with the win!

Very thankful for my little bulldog family!
I love them all so.

traditions with my cheerleaders.

My girls always go to their Grandy's house for the week of cheerleader camp at our old high school.  They always have a blast with cousins and new friends.
Phelps and Katherine both got the "Best in Stunt" award and "Gold" spirit sticks!
Love those girls celebrating in my old colors blue and gold!

some serious boat riding.

 papa has a boat that makes big smiles across many faces.
 especially when he lets you drive!
 some of us prefer to just sun bathe, but that is okay too.
 momma and her little man.
Papa and his big girls!

fun times on the river with Papa

guess what we can do??

yep, no training wheels.

So BIG - my sweet babies!
let the good times ride and ride and ride.

this boy.

I really love this boy.

I have been telling him just that since I was 12.

Very scary! Lawson joy is 12.

This boy who mowed our grass and canned/jarred 12 jars of pepper sauce and tomato relish on Saturday with no help from me the wife.
And might I add that he grew the peppers and tomatoes himself!
He is very handy, a wonderful Chef, successful, cute, and mine.
Thank goodness!
I LOVE him.

my side of the family.

the people in the picture you are list familiar with are....
top row - my momma, aka. Granny Audie
top row - my sister, also know as, Aunt Shelby,
and front row, my daddy, or just Papa.

Now I know this picture explains a little about the looks of my kiddos, based on the light complextion and blond hair of my sister and momma.  Funny right?
My sister once said, "It is sure funny how my sister's kiddos look more like me and not their mother."
Do you think so?
Honestly, I hate to admit it, they do.  Not that it is a problem, but in Science I learned the brown eyes/hair gene is dominant.  Either I heard wrong or something amazing happened when 3 out of 4 of my kiddos are blond.

Lawson Joy is tall, really tall.  Or is it that her momma is short, quite short??

I love my family, and are thankful I have them all!

50"s pArTy!

Phelps and Watkins had a 50's celebration at school.
The momma had a blast getting them all dressed up for the occasion,
but let's just say they weren't as enthusiastic as her at the beginning......
 the ride to school
 priceless pose.
 at least they decided to look at the camera this time. :)
 and my little t-bird man, doesn't get cuter than that!
 to his momma's dismay he refused to go for the tight roll jeans. :(
 smiling in their classroom, once they realized their momma 
wasn't the only one who made their children dress this way!
popcorn, coke floats, and dancing followed.
fun school memories!
