We are still here, everyone! Sorry for the lack of posts. Our home computer has a virus, so I haven't been able to do much on the blog front. We had a great Thanksgiving and were so blessed to have a combined Thanksgiving with my family and Hays' parents. It was so much fun and GREAT to see a still undefeated Auburn team! War Eagle!

I did not get any pictures so I am going to link to THIS POST on my good friend Fran's blog so you can see our cute babies playing over the holiday. I hope to be back with more posts from a fixed computer soon!

Katie's Senior Pictures

Please go here to look at my sweet dance captain Katie's senior pictures. She is so gorgeous and the photographer did a great job!

I am going to be SO SAD when she leaves me!

Trick or Treat! (Halloween, Part 2)

On Sunday night, we continued the tradition of getting together with my best friend, Amanda, and her entire family at her sister's house. We got there early so that the kids could play a little bit and then we could take them out to trick or treat. Alyson has a terrific neighborhood for trick or treating! She also has really sweet, fun neighbors.

Amanda's little girl Emily is 4 months older than Margaret Anne, and has really good verbal skills for a 2 year old. At one point, Margaret Anne came over and said "Face hurt" and I asked if she wanted me to kiss it, and she shook her head. Amanda asked her if she wanted Emily to kiss it and she said "yes," so she walked over to Emily and said "Kiss it." Emily looked at MA and then looked at Amanda and said "Her daddy needs to fix her." So hilarious!

Now for the pictures:

Trick or Treat! Margaret Anne did so well saying "trick or treat" and "thank you!"

Walking with Mommy - gotta hold hands!

 Sweet girls taking turns. If you can't tell, Emily is Dorothy and Ella Kate (middle) was a nurse! Her scrubs said "Ella, R.N."

Emily and Margaret Anne holding hands. MA loved this!

They walked up to the door holding hands, then Emily had enough. Ha!

Halloween, Part One

We had a very busy weekend. Margaret Anne got to have so much Halloween fun, and I think she really loved it. I swear, as soon as I feel sad about being a grown up with real responsibilities, I am able to watch Margaret Anne and experience childhood through her eyes. It is truly a joy to watch.

On Saturday, Jamie, Elaine, and I got Charlie, Andrew, and Margaret Anne together to take pictures in their costumes, while the boys watched the Auburn/ Ole Miss game. War Eagle.
Natalie came to join in the fun. We had so much good food and fellowship, it was a blast. My man T-dub had a little cold, so Jamie decided to wait until Sunday to put him in his giraffe costume. Jamie, I want to see pics!

Our better attempts at getting them together while all in costume.

My little Cheetah!

More Charlie love - true story... when we got there, Charlie was in just his diaper and they would not stop hugging and kissing. It was pretty cute!

"Margaret Anne! Help me get these orange lights down!"

Being dressed up is SO exhausting...

Cheetah prowling around.

"Here Margaret Anne, eat this leaf. I tried a few and they're GOOD."

Lady, quit taking my picture.

"I'm not doing anything... definitely not ripping leaves off this bush."

We really enjoyed our Saturday night with great friends. It will be so fun to watch these kids grow up together!
