Halloween Playdate

Yesterday we hosted a Halloween playdate for Caroline and her friends. We had such a fun group -- a total of 10 kids ranging from age 5 months to 3 years! Caroline had a blast playing with everyone, and I enjoyed visiting with all of my friends!

We had lots of yummy food!

I love this picture of Jennifer, Caroline, and Charlotte. It looks like Charlotte is about to pull Caroline's hair!

William looked so cute in his teddy bear costume!

After the playdate, Tripp took some pictures of Caroline on our front steps. They turned out really cute!

Happy Halloween!

Sunshine on a Cold Day

Last Saturday we had our Christmas pictures taken. It was a very cold and windy day, but Caroline's sweet smile provided plenty of sunshine to keep us warm! Here is a sneak peek of our pictures.

(Click on the picture so see both images)

Our pictures were taken by Erin Cobb. She has photographed Caroline since she was born and she always does a great job of getting that perfect shot that captures Caroline's personality!

Tomorrow is homecoming at Ole Miss. The Rebels play UAB, but we are staying in Huntsville this weekend. We are having our Christmas pictures made tomorrow (I cannot believe it is already time for Christmas pictures!!!). Of course, we will be watching the game on TV and cheering on our Rebels. Caroline is already such a good little cheerleader! Have a great weekend!

Game Weekend

This weekend we were in Oxford for the Ole Miss-Alabama game. We went with our friends, the Elwells and the Grays. We rented a house in Oxford for the weekend and had such a fun time! On Friday, we got ready for the game on Saturday. Jennifer and I set up our tent in the Grove Friday afternoon and made our tailgating food on Friday night. (You may be wondering why Jennifer and I set up the tent and not Jason and Tripp. Well, Jenn and I drove by the Grove on Friday afternoon to see if any tents were set up and the Grove was already packed. So we just pulled the car over, grabbed the tent, and set it up! I was excited that Jenn got the full "Groving" experience!!!) Puppy and Granddaddy Smith and Winnie and Granddaddy Dixon drove up to grove with us and kept Caroline and Charlotte during the game. Here are some pictures at our tent before the game.

Of course, the game did not go as planned for us Ole Miss fans. But despite the loss, we had a wonderful weekend with friends and family. It was so great to have Caroline and Charlotte in the Grove! I think we have started a tradition for Ole Miss-Alabama games in Oxford that will continue for many years to come!
