A few highlights & pictures from Fall, since I have been a terrible blogger and it passed right by!
- Football Season- I wouldn’t say it was a “highlight” to be a Florida fan this year, but it does play a big part in our family’s lives and hopefully we’ll get back to the winning Gators that we’re used to! :)
- DW, like almost every year before, didn’t miss a game. AB got to go to a couple, too, and even lost her second tooth at the tailgate before one of them. She bit down on her fried chicken and it popped out! She lost her first tooth a week before at school, and on the same day, Tucker got his first one! (at 3 mos old).
We entered a candy and a cookie and won both! Mamie was thrilled to go up and get her trophy! AB was a little more shy when it was her turn. :)
We can’t wait for next year, to try and take home a win four consecutive years!
- I mean REALLY… is he not precious? :)
- Luke Bryan came to the farm! It was so crazy to see one of the hay fields transformed into a concert “venue” and to see 14,000 people in the middle of it. We didn’t get to meet Luke (& we even bought our own tickets for the concert) (I KNOW, you’d think being in the family would have that perk- (ha!) but this family’s pretty big – and The Farm Tour’s a fundraising event for college scholarships). It was a really fun concert and the family did get a reserved seating section that ended up being great seats. I almost backed out at the last minute of going, but I’m really glad I decided to go. I think my father-in-law, his sisters and their cousins who all own the Cattle company/farm together were really generous in letting the Farm Tour come, as well as donating the money they were paid for it. It was a neat experience and I’m glad we got to be a part of it.
- Thanksgiving – We don’t really do much for Thanksgiving anymore, since it’s a really hard time of year for us. But this year, Beau & Kristy came down and we did lunch with them. We ate at our house, but my mom did all the cooking and it was seriously the best Thanksgiving meal any of us have ever had. It turned out to be a really great day and it felt good to have a “real” Thanksgiving again. I had the kids make pilgrim and Indian hats for everyone. Annabelle loved getting to pick what everyone was going to be. I wish I had a picture of the adults sitting around the table wearing our pilgrim and indian hats. :) The kids cooperate better than the adults…
That night, Mom, Kristy & I ventured out for a little Black Friday shopping. It’s always been fun to stay out late and go.
