Fright Night!

This year we took the kids to the Waco Tennis and Fitness center for their annual Halloween party.   Last year Brady randomly won 2nd place in the Halloween costume contest, which I had no idea was even taking place at the time.  This year I was informed of the contest, however, had NO intensions of my children winning.  Lo and behold, Bailey won the grand prize for the 2011 costume contest!   One might think that my kids were the only ones there, but there were at least 40 others dressed up! Unbelievable!

Welcome Home Aunt Kimmy!

Kimberly has been in England the last 12 months volunteering her time ministering to the youth.  Although her visit was quick, we made sure to spend lots of quality time with Aunt Kimmy.  We spent hours outside on the trampoline, in the tree house, and hanging out on the front porch. Oh, Kimmy how we have missed you!

Burgers with the Buengers!

A few weeks ago we had our friends the Buengers over for dinner and an evening of 4-wheeling.  After we scarfed down our burgers and hotdogs, the boys were off for a ride.  Us girls hung out around the house, chatted and played in the playroom.  When Randy and Chad came back with the boys, of course the girls wanted their chance to ride.  When all the off roading excursions concluded, I busted out the classic glow necklaces!  The kids each had a necklace and we spent the rest of the evening watching them run around in the dark.  Good times! 

Seriously, can you get a cuter group of kids?  Love them!

On your mark, get set, GO!


Fall Days

The cooler temperatures have been a breath of fresh air!  Here is a glimpse of how we spend our afternoons enjoying this fall weather.

Bailey loves to jump!

Right where a boy should be!

Happy Campers

Welcome to our neck of the woods!  
Randy and Brady had their first camp out right here in our backyard.  Setting up camp is a little more involved than the norm for these Niemeyer boys.   Randy ran an extension cord to the tent because a fan & light are must haves!  It was a "Boys Only" event so Bailey and I spent the night cozy in our beds.  Considering this was Brady's first camping experience I was fully expecting them back inside by 10.  Quite by surprise they camped out until after 1am!  

Mimi came out to check out the camp site.

Dirt!  Our best friend!

Lights out!


South Padre Island
What an opportunity we had to spend quality time together in such a beautiful place right here in Texas!
