So after dropping Lex off at preschool today I stopped at Wal-mart to pick up a few things. I hadn't eaten breakfast so I was kind of hungry. I was just getting the usual things like eggs and milk, you know the usual. Then a worker walked past me holding what I believed to look like some kind of yummy pastry. I was wondering where she got it from. In my head I was thinking it could not have been from Wal-Mart. Of course I have never eaten anything at their bakery. So I decide to check it out. i walk over there and I see nothing that resembles what she got. All I saw was some lousy doughnuts. If any of you know me you know I love my pastries. One time when I was pregnant I made my dad go to like 8 different shops to find the perfect pastry I was looking for. Anyway back to the story. So, I was about to walk off when another worker reaches in the pastry door and grabs what looked like the other ladies pastry. I had missed it at first glance. I looked at it and I think I have seen this type of pastry before but never looked appetizing. I'm sitting there wondering whether or not to try one and out of hunger decide it is a good idea to try. So I sit in my car trying this thing out and wow. Let me tell you, it was delicious! It was flaky and a little chewy with like caramelized sugar and mine had chocolate drizzled on the top. I was in pastry heaven which I like to be in more than I should. I talked with Jen and she says she knows what they are and is not too impressed with my find. whatev! I think they are called palmiers. All I know is I know where to find it and it is close to my house. Bad thing. Also, it only costs 58 cents, that's right baby!

Lex's 1st day of Preschool

Lex has started preschool. I am so happy for many reasons besides the 3 hours to myself!
Lex was so excited for school to start. We got him a new backpack and he loves it!
Before school started we were off to the Thanksgiving point farm. We go at least once a year. Lex seriously loves animals!
After his pony ride he insisted on giving the horse a kiss to say thanks for the ride.
This year he was big enough he did not want dad following him around. He did it all on his own.
Dad got him to wave to the camera/mom.
He just giggles while he feeds the animals. It tickles.

Ben even got in on the animal action. Ha ha.
Speaking of animals, this gross moth I found in my backyard. It is freakin' huge!!
This pic was just a cute one from summer. Love it!
