Little Fans


It is football season and these are our sweet little fans. They love the games and the Toppers, mostly Big Red.

Her favorite part about football...the fireworks, Big Red and the snacks...probably in that exact order.

His favorite part...(no doubt in this order)-the snacks, and then clapping/dancing/standing alongside his sister on the rail.

Our favorite part...taking them with us to tailgate and watch the team we love.

And one other thing about these sweet little fans...they do not care AT ALL that we have lost how many games in a row ? :)

Toddler Getaway

While Jeff and I were having a great time in Vegas, Sydney and JJ got to spend some exciting time with their grandparents. The first stop was Nana and Buddy's! While they were with my parents, they rode the golf cart, played outside, attended the Apple Festival at a local apple orchard 2 different days, and much more! Among other healthier choices, they enjoyed Crazy Bread and apple slushes :) Here are some pictures of them enjoying their time at Evans Apple Orchard in Georgetown:



The second half of their toddler getaway was spent with Granny and Papaw! While they were with Jeff's parents, they attended church & cousin Lilly's princess 3rd birthday party, played at the park and fed the ducks, and much more! Sydney talked Granny into taking her to Arby's (a favorite of hers) three days in a row :)!



They are both lucky to be so loved and have two different sets of grandparents who are both able and excited to keep them and do such special things together. I hope that they all have special memories of the time they spend together, now and for many years to come.

Just the Two of Us


Jeff and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary in June. We had been planning a getaway this winter but moved that up a bit due to other things happening this winter :)

So, we took a long weekend last weekend and the two of us headed to Las Vegas, one of our favorite places. The last time we went was during March Madness of 2006.

Our two babies got some special time being spoiled by their grandparents (more to follow on that soon). We cherish every moment with them and do not (want to) leave them very often...actually the last time we did, Sydney was JJ's age and we were expecting him!

But, it being a trip for the two of us...we had such a fun time! When we vacationed 2 years ago by ourselves over a long weekend, we took a cruise...and enjoyed our time overall, but it is defintely not something we are going to be doing again anytime soon.

But this trip was a totally different story. Whether we were enjoying the pools, a spectacular Cirque du Soleil show "O," the dancing fountains at the Bellagio, dining at our favorite places, walking around the resorts (which are each attractions themselves), or spending a few bucks betting on the weekends football games (and cheering the outcome)...we LOVED it. Four days flew by faster than any I can ever remember, and I cherish these special times with my sweetheart and best friend of almost 15 years.

Seeing our two happy babies when we returned was just icing on the cake!

Apple Jacks Anyone?


Doesn't he look proud of himself?

Sydney's assessment of the situation when she found it..."Oh my goodness! Mommy, I think this was an accident..." Then, she helped me clean it up :)
