Headed to ATL!!!

Roll Tide, y'all! Tyler's dad graciously offered us the chance to go down to T-town at the last minute the weekend, and we had THE BEST time! Granna & Grandaddy were sweet enough to watch Anna Kate, so we jumped at the chance to go see our favorite team clinch the SEC Western division title and the chance to go at Atlanta again this year and play the Gators in the Championship game! :) We opened the weekend with wings at Buffalo Wild Wings and a walk around campus, then got up bright and early for some shopping on Bryant Drive and an early arrival at The Zone for some good food and cheering as the team pulled up and entered the stadium!! I can't say it was an "easy" win, and there were definitely some moments when we wondered what the outcome would be, but we cheered until we were hoarse, and thankfully, the team pulled out another impressive win! ROLL TIDE!! We are definitely blessed with great family that allows us the opportunity to go and use their tickets, and awesome family that keeps an eye on Anna Kate while we're away! Thanks, y'all! We love you SO much! Here are a few pics!

Us...being silly...same pose a year later! Not too bad for an unflexible almost 30 year old next to a national champion baton twirler, huh! :) :) :)

SO excited about heading to the stadium to see our guys whoop LSU!

awwww...We are so blessed to have such awesome family!

One of the great things about sitting in the Zone is getting to go in early and watch the team pull up and walk the Walk of Champions...this is the aftermath...a sea of crimson!

Tyler and me in the stadium getting ready to watch the Tide roll!!

After the game, minus our voices, and VERY happy!!! Ramma Jamma, baby!! 24-15!

Here's a picture of Anna Kate enjoying storytime with Grandaddy while Mama & Daddy were in Alabama. It's such a blessing to be able to leave Anna Kate with them and know she'll be in good hands and LOVE every minute with them...

Fall, so far!

Happy Fall, y'all! I've been away too took me quite a while to upload these pics. I've been lax lately, mainly because we've been super busy and because our camera is now officially 27 years old. I've definitely got my sights set on a camera that doesn't weigh 12 lbs for the new year!!! :)

Anna Kate is growing like a weed. At her last appointment she weighed 28 lbs, and was 34 inches long...She is TALL TALL TALL! She is STILL not talking which would concern me, but ALL my friends say that she will just wake up one day and speak in complete sentences. She knows which books are which, and can get them when we ask her to, but I'm ready to be able to communicate more effectively with her! She's definitely gotten some "spunk" here lately! No is not quite as meaningful anymore, if you know what I mean! She absolutely loves playing with Bella, and watching football! YAY!

Today, we went to visit Mrs. LeAnna, for Anna Kate's VERY first haircut! This is the before

During...LeAnna did a FABULOUS job!

And, after! I think it's pretty obvious that Anna Kate LOVED getting her haid done. I'm afraid we have a girly girl on our hands! :)

This is a picture from Halloween! We did NOT go trick or treating, because of the rain :( but we did eat pizza and hang out at home with our little puppy dog!

Me, Mae Beth, Gigi, Anna Kate and Sarah after one of her famous halftime performances at Catholic! Anna Kate LOVED going to the games this season.

Anna Kate is FASCINATED by all the shiny crystals and sequins on Sarah's costume. Gigi's mom, Mary, made this suit...isn't it GORGEOUS!!??

This happens a LOT...I can't tell you how many of our pictures are just not blog-worthy because Anna Kate is trying to escape the clutches of some loved one! Can I get a witness from the moms who've recently had an 18 month old???? :)

Getting an all-important shaker lesson from Grandad!

ROLL TIDE!! I think she's got the hang of it!

With Daddy and Mae Beth after one of Sarah's performances all decked out in Irish green. Check out Anna Kate's gold sandals! Has this chick got spirit or what?? :)

With Uncle Ben at Allison's Catfish for dinner!

With Uncle Ben & Aunt Lacy before dinner!

With Gigi, obviously pumped to be decked out for the first Bama game of the season!

Could she be more excited??? Actually, this one had nothing to do with football, and EVERYTHING to do with a couple of super cute puppies!

Attempting a picture with Aunt Sarah...

Walking around/on the dress that Momma bought last season in T-town. Good news-she'll probably be able to wear it next year, too!

Anna Kate LOVES watching football with her daddy!
