We've only just begun...

So, after 7 months of sending out "Riley Updates" via e-mail with tons of pictures for friends and family to download, I've decided to start putting all of that information in our own blog. Now you can check up on us anytime you would like!

I really can't take credit for this idea. For months now I've been reading up on my friend Emily and her family on her blog. She is so good at keeping everyone updated on Will and all of his milestones. I hope I can do the same with my girls and our adventures!

Here's what has been happening at our house this fall...

We took a trip to the Georgia National Fair in Perry, GA. with Gran, Chief, Aunt Amanda, Uncle Ben, Aunt Lainey and Cousin Colten. Brandon and I have both been to the fair before, but it was a 1st for Chandler and Riley.

This picture was taken at the very end of the night... a table dancing 4 year old is what you get after corn dogs, soda, cotton candy and sleep deprivation mixed with some oldies music from an Air Force band!

Last Sunday night we went out to the new property that the church bought for a "family movie night". After we ate and the kids jumped in those GIANT blow up things, everyone settled down for an outdoor showing of Wallace & Gromit in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit.

Corn dogs... Again!

Tonight the weather was cool, but not too cold so Brandon decided that it would be a good night for roasting marshmallows. This was Riley's 1st bonfire so I turned it into a photo-op.

The only time I make it into pictures is when Chandler gets a hold of the camera!

Brandon thought it would be cute to put Riley in this box. It was cute until she started choking on something that she picked up off of the ground!
We don't normally have boxes laying around in the yard. Brandon took advantage of the fire and burned a few empty boxes that had been sitting around.

I LOVE it! Keep the pics and updates coming. I miss my girls. Thanksgiving is TOO far away. I'm always showing off their pictures at work.

Yay! I'm so glad you have a blog now. I will add you to my list of faves :) One of my favorite things to do after Will goes to bed is check out all of our friends/family blogs and update our own.
