Around Here

I've been in a blog writing (not reading;)) funk lately, so I thought that the best medicine would be to sit (or in my case, lay down) and type. Truth be told, there hasn't been too much to blog about lately. I do love finding the extraordinary in the ordinary, like most bloggers, but I haven't felt inspired lately. Maybe it's this darn cold that's been making its way through our house and draining any bit of  energy that I have left.

We're adjusting to our new routine and just living life.

Oh yeah, and watching Auburn football on Saturdays! Warrrrrrr Eagle!!!

This was one of our more relaxed Saturday afternoons. Chloe has been honing her photography skills as well ;)


My mother-in-law surprised me with this adorable mesh wreath last month and I couldn't resist taking this photo of the littles all decked out in their Auburn gear!


This cute, but blurry, photo was taken by Chloe. My intention was to get a family photo, but once the game came on TV, all intentions went out the window.


And, here is my little mess striking a "cheer leading" pose!


Also, I finally got to hold Baby Shelby!!! I met Miss Shelby in the hospital a few weeks ago, but she had a "rough go of it" during her first few weeks of life and was in the NICU:( She is at home now and doing very well. Lots of prayers got her and her momma through those first few weeks. God is good!


Do you see that red hair?! She is beautiful!

The littles also got a chance to hold sweet Shelby.


I can't wait to hold her again! Although, it will probably be another week or so. I don't want to risk passing along our sickness to Shelby. I'm sure her momma's heart has endured more than it can handle for a while;)

...Well, that wasn't so bad...Once I started typing, I realized that there are a few more events that I've been wanting to share...:)

    1. Thanks, Katie! She says she does, but who knows! Her likes change with the seasons. One day she wants to be an artist, the next, she wants to be an actress. Maybe she'll be a band geek like me...or a rebel without a cause like her Daddy:) I really feel like she'll work in entertainment. She has a very big personality. We're making a day trip to Atlanta in October or November. I'd love to get the families together for dinner.

    2. That sounds like Matthew! We keep asking him what he wants to be for Halloween, and it changes every time! :)
      Getting together would be wonderful! Maybe the kids could tired one another out! Let me know when your trip gets closer! :)

    1. Thanks, Carrie! We're really not a sports-loving family, except when it comes to Auburn football:)
