Craft Time

I have been wanting to sew Halle a dress.  I was shopping yesterday and saw a cute dress at a boutique and it looked pretty easy to sew. After one mess up of a dress, an uncooperative sewing machine, and no pattern I finally did it. No I will be sewing up a storm. We are going to go tailgate at the Clemson-Carolina game and I will have to make her a Clemson dress next. 

Happy Birthday Granddad!!

This past weekend Halle and I took a trip to Winston Salem N.C. to visit my grandparents and aunts. My grandparents were so excited to meet their sweet great granddaughter. We all went to eat in the dining room of their retired living center and and my aunt Blair and cousin Angela sat back and watched Halle. Later they brought her down to meet everyone and it was like no one had seen a baby before. It was pretty funny to watch everyone ooh and aww over her. I also found out that Halle does not do good sleeping in a new environment. We both slept maybe four hours that night. What a nightmare. But we had a great time with the fam!

The Leaves are Changing

The leaves are at their peak right now and they couldn't be more beautiful! We took a drive up to the mountains the other day and did a little hike while the sun was setting. This is the first time Halle really enjoyed her front pack. She had a ball checking out the river rolling over huge boulders, watching Riley go crazy over all the sticks, and enjoying all the beautiful colors of the leaves.

My eyes look creepy here! I tried to reduce the red eye and it did something screwy.

Happy Halloween!!

We had a great Halloween weekend! On Halloween Mike and I went to a Halloween party at a friends house. Halle was dressed as a ladybug. She was so cute! I tried talking Mike into all of us being a ladybug family but he wasn't into it. I don't blame him. Saturday I hosted a neighborhood block party. We had a lot of fun catching up, eating, roasting s'mores and watching college football on the big screen. I'm sad I didn't take pictures of any of it. Here are pictures of Halle and a cute video from today. Mike had her cracking up and we got the tail end on video.  

Halle's First Taste

Halle got her first taste to "real food", rice cereal. Mike fed her right after bath time and she loved it. She has been watching us eat with such amazement so we decided it was her turn. I fed her the next night and got drenched in white mush. She had just taken a big mouthful when all of a sudden she got a tickle in her nose and AHCHOO it splattered all over my face, shirt and pants. Too cute!!!
