Labor Day Weekend

We had a fun Labor Day weekend. Trey worked on Saturday, so we didn't do too much but relax around the house. Sunday Ella's Grandma and Grandad (Trey's parents) came in town and we met at Glorias and had lunch before heading back to our house. I just love Glorias, they have the best chips and hot sauce! Trey's mom bought us all presents. Ella got some bubbles and a pinwheel, Trey got a big bag of bubble gum and some chocolate chip cookies, and I got two new hairbrushes, two nail polish colors, some body scrub. hairspray (a girl's best friend!), and a coupon for a free shaved ice from Bahama Bucks (another one of my favorites!).

Trey tried to keep the cookies to himself, but this little girl had at least four that I know within 3o minutes!

Monday Trey put some ribs on the smoker at about 9:30 a.m. He had the day off and we were having a great time all playing in the backyard. Until his work phone rang and he got called in. He was the back-up guy to the on-call guy, but of course the on-call guy conveniently didn't answer his phone. Trey was pretty upset because he had to drive all the way to Arlington on what was supposed to be his day off.

Oh well, he got over it and was home by 4:00. We cooked a brisket, smoked ribs, and I made baked beans. We had two couples over from church and had a great time! Melody and Justin left before I could get any pictures of them. Their daughter was at her Dad's house and they had to leave early to go pick her up.

One of the most fun toys of the evening was, as I like to call, the "bugger sucker". Here Ella is demonstrating to Addison how to properly use the booger sucker. Notice Addison paying close attention.

And then Ella decides Addison might need some of her boogers sucked. Addison obliges and tilts her head back for easier access for Ella!! I can't believe I actually caught this. Of course as soon as Nicole saw what was going on she stopped Ella.

These two almost terrible two's went at it over some of the more valuable toys such as the police rocker and the stroller.

Gregory got Ella a couple of times pretty good in the stomach and face. However, Ella has the sneak attack. Notice Gregory smiling and posing as Ella has her mouth wide open going in for the bite! What a little toot! Yes, we stopped her before she could clinch down.

And there is sweet Addison in the background, just cruising along the table and bouncing ever so often.

Ella then got Addison's diaper bag and decided to empty it out for her. She is just such a helper!

It is so nice to have a three day weekend ever once in a while. Ella and I love the extra time we get to spend with Daddy.
