Getting Big

Somebody is growing up way too fast!

Look at all the new things we can do at 6 months!

Last week was Fall Break around here so we got to spend some time with friends. Monday we took our first trip to The Big Back Yard at Memphis Botanic Gardens. And yes, we will be going back. I'm hoping to make a second trip when Dianna and the kids come up for Thanksgiving. Although Hudson isn't quite old enough to really enjoy it, I think he still had a good time. Tuesday we went to Daddy's final game against Arlington. G'Town lost:( But on a positive note, football is finally over and we have Micah back! Woo-hoo. That is reason to celebrate I tell ya. Wednesday we met Natalie and Addie at the park and hung out. Addie loves "Baby Hudson" so really is adorable. Thursday was bible study at church like normal and Friday..well I can't really remember what we did Friday. Oh yes, another afternoon at the park. I'm taking advantage of the milder temperatures while I can because I know it won't last forever! Saturday we hosted a get together at our house for our Sunday School group. It was a lot of fun. We cooked out and had a bonfire, made smores, and watched Tennessee get murdered by Alabama:) What else is new? Haha. That's about it. Now we're just gearing up for all the fun Halloween festivities next weekend. Can't wait!

Halloween Bunco

Another Fun Bunco Night...

our creative costume - we were bunco!

Hosted by Debra at her beautiful home! It was Halloween themed of course, being that it is October:) And as always, I procrastinated in finding a costume and didn't really want to spend the money anyway so Emily, Natalie, and I went as "Bunco" - for those of you who do not play bunco is played with dice, 3 "die" actually. A roll of three 6's equals Bunco (Big Bunco for some) and there you have it. Cheap, inexpensive, and creative I must say! It was a fun night. I didn't win anything sadly, but Natalie was the big winner with a grand prize of $90.00. Wow. Can't wait for next month:)

Fun, Fall, and Five Months

I realize Hudson is actually almost 6 months old and needless to say, I have been a slacker when it comes to keeping up the blog. I blame it on my ridiculous, only works when it wants to, outdated Dell computer. Which is why a MacBook Pro is on my wish list:)

Anyway, we've been quite busy these last few weeks. A trip to East TN to visit family, Julie's wedding, the Delta Fair, introducing rice cereal and oatmeal, play dates at the park, and even Hudson's first trip to the Memphis Zoo. The weather has been so nice - a little too hot for October if you ask me - but overall we enjoy getting outside and strolling over to the park at least once a day. Just me, Buddy, and ol' Riley girl. It's our new tradition. Fall has always been one of my favorite seasons. And we still have so many fun things to look forward to in the next upcoming weeks.

But for now, here are a couple pics of our recent happenings. Enjoy!

He discovered his feet and LOVES them!

Trying rice cereal for the first time. What a funny face!

First trip to the zoo - Teton Trek was amazing!

Julie's Wedding

Julie & Jeff's Wedding
September 25, 2010

Me with Mr. and Mrs. Jeffrey David Pitta

Well, it's official.
Julie is now a Pitta.
It was such a beautiful wedding and a weekend of lots of fun. I LOVED getting to see friends that I hadn't seen in a while and of course getting to share this special time with Julie. She amazing! Prettiest bride award for sure.

All the girls:)

Side note: got to meet my Lindsey's new beau, Bryan Kelley, aka "BK". All I have to say is super awesome and studdly guy! I am so happy for her and approve 100% of this guy. I think he made a good impression on the rest of her family and friends too:) Yay BK!

BK and the ladies - love this guy!

Dara's Garden was a beautiful spot to host a wedding. I had never been there before but was really impressed. The rainy weather held off luckily so it made for a nice day - a little overcast and not too sweltering hot. The ceremony was outside and the reception was under a huge tent.

Beautiful Bride:)

Micah finally made it to Knoxville just in time! He and Hudson came for the ceremony and stayed for a little while after. I was glad Hudson got to experience his first wedding. And he did so great. Never fussed once. I thought he looked pretty darn cute too!!!

Julie & Jeff - we wish you a lifetime of happiness. Thanks for allowing me to be about of your special day.
