Best Birthday!

Yesterday was my 26th birthday. I can't believe I'm 26, I feel I should still be 16. I hung out with some of my high school friends the other night and it was so weird to think we are almost all married, I have a baby and there is another one on the way (Kendall and Todd). We still talk and hang out like we are 16 so whatever...we'll stay young forever :). Anyway, my birthday was great! Jarrod took me to my favorite place to eat for breakfast and then we walked downtown. Zeda was in a really good mood...she was laughing and playing with everything. I love that girl. She makes turning 26 even better. Here are a few pictures from breakfast.

Missouri or Arkansas?

(here is an older post that I forgot to add)

Both! Well...for now :)

Zeda has been quite the football girl. The last two weekend we have spent on the road watching football. 2 weekends ago, Zeda went to her first MU game. Jarrod went to MU for undergrad and is a die hard fan. I remember visiting him in college and going to the games with him and his friends...there's nothing like an MU game especially to a private college girl who has no football team :). That was some of our favorite times while we were dating so what better way to spend some family time than an MU football game! We went up there with our good friends Steve and Danielle Monsanto and spent our Saturday tailgating and watching the game. It was a beautiful day 78 degrees and sunny. Too bad MU lost. I was told it would be a blow out! Oh well...nice day, nice friends, and a fun time had by all.

This past weekend we went down to Arkansas with Jarrod's family. His cousins Josh and Seth go to school at Fayetteville. Josh and his girlfriend Melissa are in Law School there and Seth is doing his undergrad in Engineering. We all went down to see the Razorbacks play and spend some time with the three of them. Melissa got Zeda a Razorback cheerleader outfit and all though Jarrod was a bit hesitant we put her in it and she looked adorable. Since Missouri and Arkansas don't usually play each other Jarrod is fine with her being a fan of both as long as Josh, Seth and Melissa are there. We had such a good time. Melissa's grandma owns a box at the stadium so we were treated to fancy seats, and a nice meal while watching the game. Zeda spent her time playing in the floor and being passed around from person to person. She never gets any attention so she was soaking it up ;) Jarrod and I love watching our families interact with her. She's the first baby in 16 years to come around his family and everyone is just crazy about her. It's so cute to watch a couple of college boys talk to a little baby. She's loved and she knows it.

First Halloween

Zeda was an MU Cheerleader for her first Halloween (Jarrod would have it no other way). We started the holiday off by going to Jarrod's work on Friday to show her off. Everyone puts candy in their office on Halloween for all the employee's kids to come by. Just because Zeda isn't able to eat candy yet doesn't mean she can't collect some for mom and dad. :) The first year Jarrod was working at sho-me he didn't realize that everyone was supposed the bring candy. A boy can to his office and ask where his candy was and Jarrod said, "Sorry buddy but I don't have any candy" The boy was appalled that he didn't have candy and yelled down the hall the his friends and said, "this guy doesn't have any candy!" Needless to say Jarrod will never again not have candy on his desk at Halloween.

Halloween day was a bit much for Zeda. We stayed Friday night at my parents new Branson house and so Saturday morning Zeda didn't get her 8-noon nap because there was too many people to play with. By the time we got home we rush to get her in her costume and head to Jarrod's parents house for lunch so she could trick or treat there. She got a pumpkin basket and a new outfit from her Mimi and Papa (Jarrod's parents) and went and rang her first bell at her Aunt Kim's house where she got her first cell phone :) (Thanks Kim!) I felt bad because people just wanted to play with her but she was an absolute crab! She was tired and hungry. I fed her and we left around 5pm to head to my sisters house where we usually spend Halloween. This year we decided to also celebrated my brother-in-law's birthday the same night. She feel asleep on the way there and slept through most of the festivities. She missed all the trick or treaters and the sugar high screams but at least she was in a good mood when she finally woke up at 8. Here is a sweet picture of my little cheerleader :)
