Halloween 2014

The fall. One of my favorite times of the year. We always go to a pumpkin patch (or two or three), pick pumpkins, carve them and roast the seeds. Yummy!

We’ve had a little gathering of trick or treaters the past 5 years, too. Our little nook in the neighborhood is perfect for hitting up a few houses, coming back for some grub and letting the kids hand out candy. They love it!

Beach with the Mom and Sisters

My sisters, mom and I headed to Mary’s in laws place to take everyone to the beach. Although I had not shared it with many people, I was around 16 or so weeks pregnant. AND I was exhausted! Blaine, while so much fun, is a Mama’s boy. He did not want anyone to help him except for me. That meant carrying his 36 pound self (yes, 36 pounds at age 2) around and tending to him. My mom and sisters helped as much as possible but when the kid cries when talked to, I’m sure it was hard to want to help him. Nonetheless, we had a blast. Once we actually got TO the beach or IN the condo, everything was fine. That boy!

On the other hand, Justin and Troy were wonderful and played great with their cousins. So we’re talking about 5 boys at 5, 5, 3, 3 and 2 plus a 3 year old girl. Whew!

Papa John came down one night to let the ladies go out to dinner. We had the BEST time and laughed a lot. It was super sweet for him to do that.

Once I got the car packed and got my boys in the car, I felt so relieved…I was exhausted! The drive home was pretty quiet and uneventful.

Overall, it was a wonderful trip and I’m so glad I took all 3 boys. Thank you Mary!

Auburn Football 2014

During Auburn University’s Homecoming week, there are so many fun activities. One is a parade. Kids love parades. Love. Them.

Our boys love football…and wearing football uniforms, hats, etc.





They also love to wrestle.

Going to Grandma’s

Not often enough, we all head over to the “farm” to visit with my dad and grandmother. On this particular trip, I (unfortunately) didn’t take any pictures of my dad. But, Brian took Troy over to Dad’s house to shoot guns (eek!). I stayed at Grandma’s with Justin and Blaine. We all had such a great time. The two little ones loved running around in the yard watching the tractors bale hay.




I love this picture of Grandma with the boys. She has the sweetest spirit and is just so darn loving!

First lost tooth!

At the first Auburn game of the season, as I jumped out of the car, Troy declares, “Mom, my tooth is loose!” Thinking he’d lost his mind, I forgot about it for about 30 minutes. Later, I asked him about his tooth. Low and behold, in his little mouth were two new teeth coming in behind his front two teeth. Three days later, while eating corn, he lost his first tooth.

I asked him what it meant to lose a tooth. He told me the “fairy tooth” would come and leave him some monies. Well, he was right but he thought the fairy tooth wouldn’t take his tooth. I assured him she would probably give them back once he grew all of his big kid teeth. He thought that made perfect sense.

On another note, I was a little sad. Why in the world was I sad about him losing his first tooth? Honestly I surprised myself because it means he’s growing faster than I expected. What made it better was how PROUD he was of losing that tooth. A week later he lost the other one! And all of this right before he turned 5.

Easter 2014

Easter. Such a special time. We had both sets of grandparents come to town and had a blast.

We had our annual egg hunt at our house. Everyone had such a fun time!

The next day, we headed over to the club for brunch and another egg hunt. All of the grandparents were there…but I can’t find the pictures?!


Blaine was hilarious carrying around the “some” sight word card. At 18 months, he memorized 45 sight words by watching a video of Justin’s. So random and so funny.DSC_9339

Thank you to KK for helping me get the outfits finished in time!

Blaine turned ONE!

Five months later, here is my post….

My precious “baby” turned one. He’s not quite walking but is a mover and a shaker. He’s a take charge kind of guy.

Still hanging off the charts at 30 pounds.

Pure. Joy. The sweetest and joyous child!
