Where we've been!

As most of you know, our home was flooded on May 2nd, and we moved in with GranGran and Poppa while it was being repaired. We moved back into our "new" house on August 29th and are trying to get settled in and caught up on all the things that didn't get done this summer.

We are so thankful to all of our family and friends for the support given to us during this time!

Here are the highlights from July through the beginning of September and I'll try to get the rest of the summer and Ella Tate's birthday up soon! Enjoy!

July 2010

Hunter and I took Ella Tate to a sounds game at the beginning of July and the famous San Diego (I think) chicken was there and she loved him and talked about him for months!

Lipscomb fireworks with the Watson's

(I don't know what's up with these first for pictures!)

Look at those long legs

Ella Tate and Mommy being silly Playing outside and GranGran and Poppa's house Playing with GranGran's headband and sunglasses!

Ella Tate loved all of time she got to spend with her GranGran and Poppa while we were there this summer!

Eating some of Nana's good pancakes on Saturday morning

My parents had the youth group from their church over for fishing and a cookout. Ella Tate was right in the middle of all of it, including the crickets! YUCK!

Spending the night with Rachel, Jeff and Olivia. Olivia made a tent our of kitchen chairs and blankets and Ella Tate thought it was so neat!

My grandmother passed away on August the 5th. This was our last real visit with her (July 21st) and Ella Tate was so sweet holding her hand.

Ella Tate's first time at VBS. She LOVED it and came home every night WIRED up and singing all of the songs she learned!

Grayson, Nolen, Ella Tate, Ford and Sophia

The Three Amigos (or Stooges) one night after VBS

Ella Tate was SO excited to have Kenzie as her VBS teacher. We LOVE Mark and Kenzie and can't wait until their wedding in November!

Ella Tate's first funnel cake. I think she'll be as big of a fan of it as her daddy is!

Three hot and tired kids

Ella Tate loved this sitting at this table and coloring at GranGran and Poppa's, but one day I found her sitting on top of it watching tv

I caught Pop napping while Ella Tate watched Sesame Street

Daddy and Ella Tate watching football (I finally broke down and "let" Hunter get a recliner!

They both love it!)

The Greek Festival

I'm so glad that Ella Tate didn't realize that you could go inside the fence b/c petting zoos FREAK me out!

(I just realized that Ella Tate has the same bow in her hair in just about all of the pictures...she does have other bows, but this one goes with everything!)

Eating some yummy food under the big tent

I thought about this for Ella Tate's Halloween costume, but took it back because Aunt Rachel and Olivia found something SO much'll have to wait and see what it is!
