Fall is finally here!!

We are all so excited that it is finally fall. It is my favorite time of year. And, of course my hot natured fellas are always glad for cooler weather. We have really been enjoying the cooler temperatures so far. Last week the children and I spent the day at Grandmama's and Grandad's. It was so much fun. We also were able to visit Mama Weeze. A very special lady in our family's life. Certainly much more than a neighbor of Grandmama and Grandad. She was so sweet to the children. She had sweet gifts for both of them. Annalise's was an adorable stuffed dog that plays Jingle Bells. Gideon's was a toy fishing rod and fish. He and Grandad immediately went fishing. Grandad is the best.

We also recently carved our first pumpkin. Well, I guess I should say that Jake carved our first pumpkin. He did a great job. The kids love it. I think Gideon really is enjoying taking the top off and looking inside. Looking forward to Halloween and dressing the kids up. It is going to be so fun.

Train Ride

This past weekend we took the kids on their first train ride. It was so fun. We rode with the Heart of Dixie Railway. Jeremy and Amy took their little ones and Grandmama and Grandad brought Anna Catherine (who happens to be one of Gideon's favorite people in the world). It was a very short ride to a pumpkin patch that Heart of Dixie set up. It was really cute. The little kids had a ball. I just love seeing things through their eyes. Things we take for granted ,they are always so amazed by. It is such a gift.

New Sandbox etc...

It has been a while since we posted anything. But, things have been pretty busy around here. Gideon has a new sandbox and we have had a lot of things to build. He REALLY loves it. In the picture you can see him enjoying it with Grandad. Grandad is always the best sport. Always willing to play. Gideon is a very lucky boy to have him. Really, I guess we all are.

The kids and I were able to go to the Hand family reunion yesterday. We had a great time. We always love to spend time with Grandmama and Aunt Tay.
