Halloween weekend with Mema and Lauren and Airstream camping in Hot Springs

We have had a great fall-lots of time as a family. We have spent a lot of time outside, taking advantage of the beautiful weather. We spent halloween with mema and cousin lauren, saw mimi and papaw for a couple of hours, aunt abbie helped us carve a pumpkin and took us to the park. We took the airstream camping in Hot Springs-Amelia and Evie really liked our little house on wheels-Amelia and Thomas canoed 5 miles on the French Broad River, the Troops met up with us for a brief jaunt on the river and late lunch, Thomas surprised me with a massage at the Hot Springs Spa...

Fall in Asheville

Picnics, visits from MiMi, corn mazes, pumpkin farms, pony rides, face painting, petting farm at Biltmore Estate, hikes, strolls, and more favorite time of year! The girls are such loves. They play so well together and keep each other entertained most of the waking hours. Thank goodness-two gets easier by the day! Oh, and Evie is on the move. She started crawling a little before 8 months-she is trying to pull up too-she is not as cautious as Amelia.

Amelia turned 3 today!

We had a wonderful time celebrating Amelia's birthday today! Well, actually [one of her favorite phrases], we've been celebrating for over a week now. It started out with Thomas's smiley face pancakes with candles, hiking on the AT in Hot Springs, tulling around Hot Springs after the hike, ice cream, cup cakes, more playing, dinner, books and bed. Thomas said she started snoring the minute her eyes closed...she and Evie are really enjoying each other's company. It makes us so happy to see them play together!

Memorial Weekend on Lake Lanier-Evie 15 weeks

We had a wonderful long weekend at Nonnie and Ollie's. The girls are growing up so fast-Amelia slept on her very own pink cot-no more pack n play. We boated, swam, sailed, ate and slept well.

Evie 13 weeks-she and Amelia have fun together-Amelia sings her songs and plays peek-a-boo with her. We are having so much fun with our girls.

At the WNC Nature Center with the girls and Lesley, our most wonderful nanny and friend-we are so blessed to have her in our family.

Oh, and Thomas took the family sailing too-Amelia loved being on the boat...Evie just loves being with her momma...

Amelia Island: visiting Thomas' parents at the end of April/May--this is Ollie's car-Amelia loved riding in it-we took the boat to Cumberland Island, swam, ate well, enjoyed sunset on the dock, played and had a truly wonderful week!
