Height and Weight

Will had to go to the doctor yesterday because he was running a fever.  This is the first time he has been "sick" in a while. Thankfully it was just a fever virus, so no big deal. He hasn't felt sick and certainly doesn't act sick. The most exciting thing was he got to stay home from school for two days. 

While we were at the doctor's office, we got his official height and weight.

Height: 38 1/2 inches
Weight 32.4 pounds

He hasn't gained much weight since his 3-yr-old well visit but the doctor said that was fine because he is so active.

He is definitely growing up!

Clay has been entertaining the idea to buy a hand gun. I am not a fan.

Since, I have never shot a gun, Jeffrey invited us over to shoot some of his guns.

It was interesting, but I am still not a fan of any type of gun.

A Day in Auburn

We went to Auburn yesterday for Auburn's CityFest.

We never pass up an opportunity to spend some time in the place we love and we got to see Cody.

We spent the day, just hanging out and eating.  We ended the day at Toomer's Corner to watch all the new Auburn Football videos. 

Can't wait for the season to start!!

Cody moves to Auburn

We headed down to Auburn yesterday to help Cody move into the dorm.  We are so excited for Cody and we know he is going to have a wonderful time during the next four years.  Will was a little sad because Cody is his "best friend" and he is used to seeing Cody everyday because Cody worked at his school.

After we got Cody's room all set up, we went to lunch at Bryon's. On the way we passed Toomer's Corner. The trees look so sad.

Then we headed to a couple of bookstores and then to the stadium to see the new Heisman trophies.  Will like the Cam Newton one the best!

Good luck Cody! See you soon!!

Quick Beach Trip to Panama City

We left Sunday night for a quick trip to the beach. Clay's Aunt Shawn invited to come down for a few days to hang out with her family on their family vacation.  This trip came at such a wonderful time. We had been having a stressful couple of weeks, so it was nice to get away and relax for a few days.

It rained all the days we were there but that didn't stop us from hanging out on the beach and swimming.

Will playing with Hallee. He loved following her around.

I am so thankful that Shawn invited us down. We had a fantastic time!

Ellie's Baby Shower

Today was a day that I have been looking forward to for over a year! 

We got to celebrate my best friend, Kristen, and her soon-to-be-here, baby girl, Eliana Kate.  Kristen has waited so long to be pregnant and we have prayed and prayed for this little girl!

Wreath made by Beth

Sign-in table.  Kristen chose to use a children's book as her guest book.  Loved this!

Mommy's rocking chair.

Cupcake Table.

The shower was a bird theme, so we had tiny pink and white birds all around. Birds are a favorite of the mommy-to-be.

Food table. Love the baby pictures of Kristen and Jordan. Can't wait to see who sweet Ellie looks like!

Some of my friends and hostesses--Mary Beth, Beth, and Ashley. 

Kristen arrives

Love this picture. Can't believe this day is finally  here!

Kristen spent the whole time opening gifts.  We had so many people come to celebrate! 

All of Ellie's sweet baby gifts. 

This is one of my favorite days this year.  I can't wait for Ellie to be here so I can hold her and love on her.  This little girl's arrival is much anticipated!

Pawpaw's 80th Birthday

Today is my Pawpaw's 80th Birthday!  Everyone keeps asking if he is really 80 because he doesn't look 80, and he certainly doesn't act 80!

My mom and I planned a birthday party for early this afternoon for all of Pawpaw's family and friends and then we had a Bar-B-Que dinner with our immediate family.

Of course, when you turn 80, you get TWO birthday cakes!

For his party this afternoon, we had cake and finger foods.

My Pawpaw, his wife-Shirley, our pastor-Brad, my two aunts-Ann and JoLynn, and my mom singing "Happy Birthday!"

The Birthday Boy!

It was a great day celebrating. My Pawpaw is the only grandparent I have and I am so lucky to have him with us.  He is such a blessing to our family!
