Happy Monday! 

We got an insane cold snap (to us Texans) overnight and we are barely getting out of the 40's until the end of this week. So we spent yesterday making sure our heaters and fire place both worked. Crazy Texas weather! 

We went down to Waco on Friday evening when Brandon got home from work. His brother and our sister-in-law live there, and it was our niece's fifth birthday party. So, we drove down in the pouring rain, spent the night at their house, had breakfast with my brother (who is a Baylor student), then went to the party. We drove home in tornado warnings and lots of rain; I was never so excited to pull into our driveway as I was Saturday afternoon! Sunday morning I was with Knox at urgent care, as he developed a bad croup-y cough Saturday night and was, in fact, diagnosed with croup and given an oral steroid. So, our Sunday was really low-key as we dealt with that, and Brandon got a bunch done outside and inside the house in preparation for this crazy rainy/cold weather we're having this week. 

So, here are the pictures from our weekend: 

+ Trying on part of his Halloween costume before we left: 

+ Saturday mornings are more fun when you get to wake up in Waco and with your cousins!

+ We had breakfast at Milo with my brother. He and Brandon got the chicken and waffles, I got a yummy ham biscuit, the boys split a cinnamon roll and scrambled eggs, and the adults shared a mimosa carafe. It was so delicious! 

+ We went a few blocks down to Magnolia (with everyone else -- ahh!). But the grounds were beautifully decorated for autumn. 

This is my Walmart shirt

+ We then went to our niece's party at Poppa Rollo's (which totally took us back to college!): 

I hope y'all have great weeks! 

Linking up with Biana


  1. Love that sweet little Daniel Tiger and your weekend looked amazing. I need to get back to the Silos.

  2. I'm sorry to hear that he has croup but glad you got to enjoy a bit of the weekend before that happened! xo, Biana-BlovedBoston

  3. Sounds like you all had a great start to the weekend but so sorry it ended with more sickness in your household!

  4. Looks like such good family time! Hope Knox is feeling better soon!

  5. Looks like a great weekend! I need to add Waco to my list of places to visit!
