Roll Tide Roll!

So glad this is a happy post!  Those last few seconds made me very nervous!  Happy that Alabama won but it was a little too close for comfort!

A Day on the Farm


My very own pumpkin!

What a fun day we had at Gentry's Farm!  We have been trying to visit a pumpkin farm for a couple of weeks but with all of the rain we had to wait. We finally made it yesterday.  Jax loved going a hayride and seeing all of the different animals.  He especially liked the goats.  At the end of our visit we picked out the perfect pumpkin to carve for Halloween.  We will definitely make this an annual family outing.  Lots of fun!

Scruffy and Tyler Come for a Visit

Our house was full of fun last week as we kept my brother Jay's two dogs while he enjoyed a cruise to the Bahamas.   Scruffy and Tyler are very active little guys so that kept up with Jax with ease.  Jax loved every minute of their visit.  Coco had fun playing with her cousins, too.  Come back soon - Scruffy and Tyler.  We miss you already!

An Apple and A Fort

Yes - it's the same apple.  Jax ate on that apple for several hours.  So funny!

The Moon

My child is obsessed with the moon.  It all started one morning while we were strolling.  It was early enough that we could still see the outline of the moon in the morning light.  I don't remember but apparently I told him it was the moon.  "Moon, moon, moon"  this is what I hear during our morning strolls now.  This particular night the moon was beautiful so I went outside and snapped a shot. Of course I had to share it with Jax so I raised the blind and out of his mouth came - "moon, moon, moon".  He is such a funny boy!

More Birthday Fun

My new dutch oven - I love it!
Granddaddy and Jax

Friday night my parents and brother Jay dropped by for a little more birthday fun. Mom brought my favorite cake from The Flour Shop and we enjoyed pizza for dinner. Jax loves having everyone come over. I think my dad was rather tired when he left because Jax kept him busy for his entire visit. It was a fun night to spend time with family.

What a wonderful birthday! My boys treated me special all day - actually all week. On Thursday they took me to Merridee's Breadbasket for a yummy breakfast that included my favorite - French Toast. The day was spent just relaxing and spending time together. For dinner they took me to Outback Steakhouse for a delicious meal. We had a small celebration when we returned home with Jax helping me blow out my candle and open presents. My boys were very good to me. I got two gift cards - one to my favorite clothing store and the other to my favorite spa. I got some kitchen gadgets, yummy apple cider and gold hoop earrings. Thanks to my boys for being so sweet to me. I'm a lucky girl!

She's 18!

My beautiful niece, Savannah turns 18 today! I am so proud of her. She is a loving and sweet girl. It seems like just yesterday that my brother John walked up to the nursery window holding a perfect baby girl. She has grown into a perfect young lady. Lots of love is being sent your way, Savannah. Happy 18th Birthday!

Disney on Ice

John and I took Jax to see Disney on Ice yesterday at the Sommet Center. It was a spectacular show. They sang and skated in celebration of different seasons and holidays. Jax loved seeing Mickey Mouse and all of his friends. John and I didn't know how Jax would to react to the noise but he did great and enjoyed the entire show. We had lots of fun.
