Thanksgiving 2011

We had a great time in Aliceville for Thanksgiving. We went to the cabin and had the Annual McBride Thanksgiving Shindig... There was a ton of delicious food and a lot of love. Everyone ate way too much....as usual. We also celebrated Namaw and Granddaddy's 60th Wedding Anniversary. We also watched the Iron Bowl and it was nice to see Alabama take the win. There is so much I have to be thankful for... A husband I adore, two girls that are my world, a job I love, and the best family and friends ever... I am truly blessed!

Nine Months of Sweetness

I feel like I just wrote the last monthly blog for you Emmecat. Your personality just keeps getting bigger and bigger!
Things I love about you:
1. Your crooked smile
2. The way you put your head down like you are ashamed when someone talks to you
3. The way you swat at any and everything... I still say you are going to be our volleyball star!
4. You look like a little Komodo Dragon when you skedaddle off so fast.
5. You crack yourself up, and that cracks us up.
6. You have a mind of your own, even at 9 months.
7. Your big, beautiful, bright blue eyes.
8. Your facial expressions... They are hysterical.
9. You have a voice and you aren't afraid to use it....
10. As much as I want to dislike the fact that you think you should be permanently attached to my hip, I secretly love it.... You love your mommy and your mommy loves you!
11. The way you light up when you see your daddy. It's the sweetest thing...

Now, if we could work on sleeping all night, that would make us very happy... You only get up once a night, but we are tired, baby girl....

I love you to the moon and back..
Happy 3/4 of a Year!

Happy Halloween from the Crakers

We had a great Halloween... For weeks, Ella has insisted that she dress up as a Spider Witch... Every once in awhile, she would say she wanted to be a cowgirl, lion, spider, or cheerleader. Emmecat didn't have much say so this year, so i decided a chunky little cat would be perfect.I had a vision of the girls dressed up in coordinating costumes... Well, Ella refused to wear her witch hat and Emory had cat whiskers smeared all over her face. We went over to a friend's and played, ate chili, and did a little trick or treating. Ella really got into the trick or treating part.... She would scream as loud as she could,"TRICKORTREAT!!!!!!!," grab as much candy as she could fit in her little hands, and then run as fast as she could back to us. It was so much fun!
