One of my favorite memories from growing  up was spending summers in TN with my grandparents and playing all day with my cousins....I am so grateful the boys will have similar memories from their childhood.  They spent the entire week of Thanksgiving with Mimi and Grandaddy.  The list of all the fun things they did with them and their cousins could go on forever.  They were having so much fun they didn't want to go home!  So my mom, Joe, Allie and I joined them and the rest of the family on Thanksgiving day and had a wonderful celebration!   It was a beautiful day, we had wonderful food and spent lots of fun time with family!

They made me do this....

My wonderful family that I am so thankful for!

I am so thankful to God for blessing us with an amazing family...immediate and extended. We really enjoyed our day with family and I think that is what life is all about!!  Now after all that Thanksgiving fun begins Christmas fun!!

Beautiful Day

This past weekend was just about perfect because we had NOTHING to do!!!  It was the first weekend in a long time that we didn't have anything going on and it was so nice.  So on Saturday I decided to take the boys to Kennesaw Mtn so we could get out and enjoy the beautiful day!!  Daddy and Allie stayed home to nap and Nana joined me and the boys for our hike!  

We stopped to visit the llamas that are close to the Mtn.

Such a beautiful background!! 

We found lots of fun trees to climb on!

Me and the boys ventured up this HUGE rock!!  

It could not have been a more perfect day!!  The weather was awesome, the sights were beautiful and I got to spend some special time with the boys!!

Happy Halloween

I feel like October has just been a crazy busy month for us and I could blog for days about all the fun we've had...but I think I am just going to end October with halloween!! We had a fun halloween with 2 superheroes and a cute ladybug!!!  The boys were super excited this year about trick or treating and made it around the whole neighborhood!! Allie was equally excited but wasn't real sure why!! :)  Once everyone started getting dressed and excited she did too although she had no idea what was in store!!
