His Mom Labored on Labor Day

It seems like all my posts lately are about birthdays.
I guess that's what happens when your life is filled with people you want to celebrate.
Today is my favorite person's birthday!
Marcus is 39! 

Our niece, Melissa, made the awesome cake.
Melissa is Marcus's sister's daughter. Just in case you were wondering.
 My family orders her cakes too though!
Those are our dogs on the cake. Blue and Cash. It's been a loooong time since they made the blog. I guess the kids knocked them off. 

Marcus does not care one teensie bit about balloons or decorations, but I just HAVE to! 
 His fave, dogs and camo.
And this is the only picture I got of almost everybody. 
We celebrated yesterday after church.

Today is the opening day of hunting season, so that means Marcus had plans! 

Last year right before Marcus blew out his candles, Katie yelled, "I'm going to be a big sister!" 
And now look...
Honestly, I still can't believe it!

It's still 200 degrees here, but September 1st means it's practically holiday time! I'm getting excited. 

And tomorrow is Katie's first day of Pre-K! 
It's just 2 days a week, but I am hoping it will mean I can start catching up with my life. I'm about a year behind. Being pregnant and having a new baby will do that to me.

We got out all of our fall stuff this weekend. I stopped short of jack o lanterns and Halloween decor but there are pumpkins and fall leaves and lots of orange in my house. Even hung the fall floral bucket on the front door. It makes me feel cooler pretending it's a chilly fall day. I even made chicken and dumplings in the crockpot. If I could've figured out a way to start a fire without Jose divorcing me, I totally would have. No Mother Nature needs to cooperate.

And PS I desperately want an invite back to your house when you decorate for fall. And Halloween. And of course, Christmas!

Staci! Show some pics of your fall stuff on your blog! I want to see! Of course you can come over when I get my house decorated. I need to clean it first!
