She Tried!

With all the talk about snow tonight, Chloe came home from school saying her teachers gave them three instructions.  1).  Flush some ice cubes down the toilet;  2).  Sleep with a spoon under your pillow; and, 3).  Wear pajamas inside out.  Chloe did all three of those things, but we awoke to no snow.  Oh well!  She gave it her best!


The Tree is Up!

This year I was one of “those” people.  I just could not wait to get the Christmas tree up.  We have never put up the tree before Thanksgiving, but since we are going to be out of town over Christmas, I wanted to get it up.  Matt said absolutely not, but he finally gave in and helped me!

“My Hand is Stuck”

Those were Cole’s words today at lunch.  Matt and I laughed for a little while and took pics.  Then….. I tried to get his fingers out of the chair.  It really was stuck!  I had a hard time getting it out, and I eventually had to yank it out.  I know it hurt him, and his fingers looked like they may bruise.  After about 20 minutes, though, they returned to normal.  He keeps me on my toes!

Football and Birthdays

We headed to the Ross’s house tonight to celebrate Courtney’s birthday with some of our favorite friends.  They had a nice set up of the TN game, the Arkansas game, and the Bama/LSU game.  The food was delicious and the company was great.  There were tons of kids running around, and sweet Ellie was the picture perfect baby that slept through it all.  As usual, wish I had more pics!

Fall Trees

The older I get, the more and more I appreciate fall and the cooler weather and the beautiful fall leaves.  I didn’t get this picture at the right peak time of changing colors, but we have a group of three trees right in our front yard.  I always love when the leaves of those trees begin to change colors.

Baby Jesus

We were all at the table eating our chili last night along with some Frito scoops (which is actually my favorite part of chili).  Chloe had a pile of Scoops on her plate, and she suddenly and very excitedly said, “Look!  It’s Baby Jesus!”  It took Matt and me a minute to see it, but after she explained to us that it was Baby Jesus wrapped in swaddling blankets, we saw it!  So, Chloe decided not to eat him (and actually, today is Nov. 16, and we still have Baby Jesus with us!)  🙂
