Goooo Team!

After missing the last TCU tailgate and game, we made sure to make it out this weekend to cheer on our Frogs! We finally got the TCU cheerleader uniform that Elly's Nana ordered for her. I'm not sure how we have lived without it! Does she not make the cutest little future Frog you've ever seen? We broke it in on Saturday and will do a little trick-or-treating in it on Halloween :)

This is the best full on picture I could get. Once she gets her paws on mommy's water bottle, there's no getting it back!

Borrowing Ali's necklace. You never know who you may run into at the TCU football games ;)

This little guy was sitting on the bleachers next to us. He was so cute and got a real kick out of Elly.

"You can be the quarterback, and I'll be the head cheerleader!"

"Touchdown TCU...I think we should kiss..."

Gruene, Tx...Part 2

As Waylon Jennings sang, "Lets go to Luckenbach, Tx. With Waylon and Willie and the boys." Well...this time it was Mommy and Daddy and the babe :) For those of you non Texans, Luckenbach is a VERY small town in Texas. It is so small that the town consists of one thing...a post office! I'm not sure when, but the post office was transformed into a gift shop and bar that is known throughout the state for it's live Texas country music. We had to make the stop to get our Luckenbach t-shirts. The back reads, "Everybody's somebody in Luckenbach", and that's no lie :)

Elly enjoying the local music. Hopefully this will be the one and only time she will be dancing on top of a bar!

Again, for you non Texans, Gruene is known for two things. Gruene Hall (the oldest working dance hall in Texas) and the GRISTMILL!! It is located right in the middle of town, overlooking the Guadalupe River. It has gorgeous scenery and amazing food! We'd had a long day so Cutie didn't last too long. Even shoveling our food in our mouths, it was quite delicious :)

The many lemon faces of Elly! The girl loves a good lemon :) She even eats the rind...kinda gross if you ask me.

Somewhere along the way, Elly lost a white shoe. How lucky that there was a random brown sandal in the car that fit the same foot! We got many smiles from people walking down the sidewalk :)

"Wait a minute! What's that noise coming from this place?! Could it possibly be..."

"...Gruene Hall! It is, it is!"

Elly got her groove on, right there on the sidewalk. She's quite the little ham. LOVES attention from anyone and everyone! If someone says hi to her or waves in her direction, they are her new best friend. Every ounce of her personality comes from Kris. Neither have ever met a stranger :)

Greune, TX

So, I'm a few weeks behind on the timeline. Oh well...It's here now!

The Roebuck's were quite disappointed after having to cancel our much anticipated beach get-a-way to Gulf Shores, Al. Due to the oil spill (thanks BP!) the beaches were closed and according to the rental property owners "there's a funny smell in the air but you can still come and enjoy the pool!" We decided to scrap it all and make our way south to Greune, TX and enjoy the hill country! It was much needed and a great little weekend retreat. I have so many pictures to share so I'm thinking this may be post 1 of 3 :)

On our way! Kris took this picture and at what angle...I'm not so sure! I love the HUGE smile and just had to share :)

Our first morning there we enjoyed coffee at a little shop down the street from our house. Elly decided she was going to head out into the great unknown...sans mom and dad of course!

"Ya'll go on without me. I'll blow you a kiss to remember me by!"

Our first full day, we made the trek to Fredericksburg. I have ALWAYS wanted to go. I usually envisioned a romantic weekend away, enjoying the wineries in the area. With a toddler in tow and a bun in the oven, it wasn't quite the romantic wine sipping weekend I had always had in mind ;) I did enjoy every minute and can't wait to go back!

Elly doesn't SIT in the stroller...she prefers to PUSH it!

Loved this!

Well...that's all I've got for now. We're off to celebrate Kris's big 3-0 with some great friends. I'm going to leave you in suspense as to where we stopped on way out of Fredericksburg. I'll give you a clue...we went to hang out with "Willie and Waylon and the boys"
