Being Brickner : Sunday Funday

Sunday Funday

It has been way too long since we had a weekend with nothing to do, no weddings, no birthday parties, & absolutely no where that we had to be.  Those are some of our favorites!  We started Saturday with the best trip to the pumpkin patch, Waverly could not have loved the pumpkins more & kept sitting on them while saying "cheese!!".  Maybe my dream come true?!  I'm so excited to share pictures later this week, I felt a morning that memorable deserves a post all of its own. :)

We also watched the Alabama game (& made this dip, so delicious!), roll tide!!  My parents are big Bama fans, which means so am I along with my brothers & sister, followed now with Waverly Maye.  The circle of life. ;)  My brother recently taught Waverly to say "rooooooooooll tide", now she says it every time he calls & it's the cutest thing ever.  Except when she did it last week when he called in a depression five minutes after they were beat by Ole Miss.  She was the only Bama fan still excited in the country, you have to love her for keeping our spirits up!!

On Sunday, we finally got to take advantage of our backyard!  It's been about three months since we have been able to go back there, first we were banned while my husband put up our new fence & then we had to wait until the weather was right to put the grass in.  My dad seeded at the beginning of September & now it's finally ready for us, we are thrilled!

Hunter Boots & Plaid Shirt (Similar)
To celebrate, we pulled out all the stops, including Waverly's jeep my dad got for her a while back.  Her legs aren't yet long enough to reach the pedals so my husband had to use a shovel while pushing from behind.  It was all fun & games until my husband got extra excited to live his lifelong dreams with off-roading our kid up the tree.


We also roasted marshmallows, so much fun for this time of year.  Waverly watched as the fire was started & then as soon she she saw the first flames, started singing "happy birthday!".  Love her & her love of celebrations way too much.


And just like that, it's Monday ...  Happy week ahead!

  14. Just when I think she can't get any cuter... she does! How sweet that she equates fire/candles with birthday celebrations! Bless her sweet little heart.
    And that picture when your husband drove her up a tree... priceless. Pure perfection for the situation!

  16. Oh what a perfect weekend!! Is it sad that I am a bit jealous of Waverly's hunters?! I have those bad boys (the red ones too) on my Christmas list (wait, is it sad that I still make a Christmas list and give it to the hubs?!) ;)

  17. My neighbor taught Reed to say, "Roll Tide!!!" When she asks him, "what does the elephant say?". As an LSU alum I had to fix that up and He now tells her, "Roll Tide, booooo!"

  20. Love this! And the jeep pictures crack me up! We got Mason a powerwheels Jeep 2 years ago and it’s like his favorite thing ever. He is a wild one on it, though! Daddy didn’t even have to coach him on the off-roading…Mason did it all on his own. One time he ran over one of those giant bouncy balls and high-centered himself on it. Ha! Sounds like you guys had a great weekend and the pictures are great!!
