YIKES...what happened to November!?

Once again I am playing catch up! I just hate it when I do this, but here it goes...

My friend's from college got together in Chattanooga to celebrate two very special events, the engagement of Mary Brooke and Hannah Ruth's first "Ones" weekend. We shopped and ate all day Saturday (Hannah did WONDERFUL) and that night we had a special "candle passing" for Brooke. It was so much fun to be with everyone and celebrate happy times!

We celebrated Thanksgiving with my mom's family in Moulton, AL the weekend before Thanksgiving this year. We had a great time and most everyone was able to be there. Thanks to Kristi and Lance for hosting at your home!

Ella Tate helped me clean the house so we could get ready to put the Christmas decorations out! She thinks she is big stuff.
