Andrew's Birthday weekend!


Andrew turned 27 on Sunday so I decided to have a Birthday weekend for him. On Friday Andrew came home to a nice dinner. We finally used our fancy china from our wedding. It was very nice. After dinner we had cake and then we gave Andrew his presents. Jackson got him a huge bag of megablocks. Andrew and Jackson sat in the floor for 30mins solid playing with the blocks. Andrew built and Jackson destroyed. Now if you just sit Jackson on the blanket in the floor he starts squealing because he knows they are about to play with blocks!

On Saturday Jackson got his 3rd haircut...yes 3rd! This time was a little harder. He started to cry whenever she started cutting (Like it hurt). As soon as Brandi gave him attention he stopped. So cute! Also it was so cold he finally got to wear his winter coat...he didn't like it...hopefully he will grow to love jackets like his mommy does!

After that we went to my parents house for a little while before we went to a book shower at Amber Steele's new house! The book shower was for Tripp, (and Jessica and Justin). We had so much fun getting to see everyone!

Sunday was a nice relaxing day. Andrew didn't have to leave the house all day! For dinner Andrew wanted pizza so Andrew's parents brought over pizza and cake. Mark and Brian also came. We had so much fun together. Andrew got a VOX guitar amp (more musical equipment) which he loves. Mark had the great idea for this gift. It was something that Andrew loves but wouldn't buy for himself. So it was nice to see Andrew surprised and loving his gift! So to our neighbors, sorry ahead of time for the loud music coming from our house.

Today was a great day! We got up and Andrew did some work around the house. This afternoon we went and paid our taxes and then drove to West Georgia so Andrew could get software for our MAC:) YAY we have WORD now!!! Also Andrew has been working on teaching Jackson how to make his tongue click and tonight he finally did it! Jackson was so proud he did it over and over and over....until I got the camera out, of course. I did however caught on tape Jackson's new favorite thing is to drink from a cup. So whenever Andrew has his cup of water Jackson wants to drink from it too. Enjoy!

Crazy November!





November has be so crazy for us. With wedding showers, parties, wedding, and birthday parties...we are going insane! I was in Shay's wedding this weekend and we had a blast. It was so much fun last night dancing with Andrew! The wedding was amazing and everything was so beautiful. At the reception they had the bestest band ever Flavor which were so awesome. We danced and my feet still hurt!

Jackson got to spend Friday and Saturday with Grammie and Grandaddy. We have had this morning to rest and relax. We had subs for lunch and I am about to bake a cake for Andrew to take to work tomorrow. Then we are off to Jackson's first ever birthday party! Gregory is turning 1!!! It seems like he was just born! Patty is making it a cowboy theme so we are excited Jackson gets to wear his "Howdy Partner" shirt! Things have been great just really busy!Carter was all dressed up for the Cowboy Party!
The birthday boy!

Pumpkin Carving and Halloween!

Sorry for the delay but as usual we stay busy. Jackson keeps growing and is getting more mobile. He now has two full in bottom teeth. Hopefully it will be a while before we are blessed with more teeth...I am just now getting some sleep!

As usual we kept up our tradition of carving pumpkins. This year we added a 3rd pumpkin for Jackson:) He sat in his jumpy seat while we carved...he had fun watching.
When we finished we sat him up on the table to see the pumpkins face to face....he wouldn't look them directly in the eye....
Then he got use to them.On Friday (Halloween) we got dressed and went to lunch in downtown Newnan with Patty and Greg and Megan. Then we walked around and went Trick-or-Treating. Of course we spent some time at Grammy's work! Aunt Sarah even came to visit!
This is what Jackson did most of the time...maybe next year will be more eventful!
Gregory was Tigger!

When we got back to mom's work Grammy saved him by taking him out of his hot chicken outfit. He was so excited to get out!
When we came home we got dressed in our Halloween shirt and got ready to pass out candy to all the kids! It was a great first Halloween and I can't wait until next year when he is WALKING around! Crazy to think about!
