Our Sweet Macy

Way back in November of 2002, I had my mind set that it was time for Jeremy and I to get a dog. I went on my lunch break to the local pet store and checked out the shelter pets they had for adoption. I came across a gorgeous brown puppy with white markings and I fell in love ....more

Braves Fun!

So it just dawned on me that I never shared pictures from our amazing trip to go see the Braves with Jeremy's parents back in July. It was my first major league sporting event of any kind, and we had such a good time! The game was wonderful, and watching the boys make such fun memories with Papa and Gigi made it even better! ...more

I Will Never Forget

On September 11, 2001 I was sitting in my Children’s Media class at Auburn University. Class started at 8:00, but most of us got there around 7:30 to chitchat and compare notes on whatever assignment was due next.

Beach Fun

We went to the beach the last weekend in June, and had such a good time. This was the first beach trip for Anderson where he somewhat tolerated the sand, and didn't refuse to be put down. He wasn't a huge fan of the waves, but I'll call it progress ....more

Anderman's Superhero Birthday Party

Anderson wanted a superhero party for his 4th birthday, and we made it happen. Anderson had such a good time with his friends and family, and he loved his party. My awesome friend Kassie made Anderson's cake, and it was the perfect cake for our superhero ....more

Dear Anderson, Happy 4th Birthday to our Anderman! It doesn't even seem possible that it has been a whole four years since you joined our family. Time really does fly when you are having fun! ...more

Another Baseball Season Is Done

We had Jackson's closing ceremonies the other night for his baseball season. He played first base for the Phillies and ended up with 8th home runs this season, and a career total of 20 home runs! Jackson's coach was Scott Snow again, and I hope we get him again next year ....more
