My life is blessed with the 2 most amazing little boys, Maddox and Mason, which have inspired this blog. I hope through the love and craziness of our family, I can give each person who reads this something to smile about! God Bless!

Happy 1/2 year Mason!

I cannot believe that Mason is already 6 months old! He went to the doctor yesterday and weighs 18 lbs, 4 oz (75%) and is 27 1/2 inches long (90%)! He is a big boy to say the least. He is such a happy boy and melts my heart every time he smiles at me. I am so very blessed to have both Mason and Maddox as my little gifts from God.

We took the kids last week to get pictures made. They were really Mason's 6 month pictures, but I had to dress Maddox up too so we could get an updated brother picture! I am SO glad I did. It turned out great! The red plaid shirt and blue jeans is the exact same outfit Maddox wore when he was 6 months old. I happened to find the same shirt in a 2T at a consignment sale and was able to dress Maddox in the same shirt. I love the way it looks. They are both so handsome! Here are a few of my favorites! Hope you enjoy as much as I do.

I just love how happy they both are. Such sweet brothers!

This one and the one below are adorable hanging side by side.

I have such happy boys!

Tummy time!

Mason looked so proud sitting in the chair. Everyone at the studio kept commenting on how much older he looked!

Here we are!

These two photos of the boys look incredible in black and white!

I love Mason's face in this picture.

Mason loved these blocks. He was trying to pick the little one up.

ADORABLE!!! Love the little hat!

Bath time . . . rubber ducky your the one!

Rain, Rain Go Away!!

Hopefully by now everyone reading this is drying out and getting life back to normal. All the rain and flooding we experienced here in metro Atlanta was crazy to say the least and I know lots of people were affected. Around our house it all started as a fun way to have a little fun and then turned into a mess. Sunday after getting myself and the boys into church with out getting wet, a feat in and of itself, Maddox proceeded to run over to the drain spout while I was putting the umbrella down and started dancing in the rain. So much for keeping him dry! haha So, when we got home and a downpour had begun again I told him to go play and he thought that was the best thing ever . . . especially when daddy joined him a minute or two later. It was so cute and Maddox was soaked. By the time Monday came around it was not fun anymore. We had a river running through our back yard and down the side of the house and Jerrod was literally rescuing people from homes and rushing water all day. I have posted some pictures below. Let's hope we never see this again in our lifetime!!!

Maddox looking back as he went outside making sure it was ok and he was not about to get in trouble.

He was super excited and just stood in the rain . . . he is holding a piece of pizza. haha

Making his way to the puddle.

Jerrod rolled up his pant legs and went out there with Maddox. He thought it was great!

Playing in the puddle.

That is the cable box at the bottom of our driveway. Our house is on a hill and we had a raging river running down the yard.

This is our river. The fence is our neighbors and is the property line. The river is on our backyard.

The side yard which is half ours and half the neighbors. It was becoming a pool.

That is another shot of the river going down the yard from the back.

Well, Georgia Football has started back and fall is in the air! We love this time of year and love watching the Bulldogs play. We enjoy seeing friends we have not seen in a while, eating yummy food, relaxing and seeing lots and lots of red and black! This year the first home game was September 12th against the South Carolina Gamecocks. It was an evening game, which is always fun, and a long day of hanging out with friends. I was not sure how a day of tailgating followed by an evening game would be this year with 2 kids. Maddox has always gone with us, but this is Mason's first year! What a wonderful experience. They were great all day . . . what little troopers. They both hung out at the tailgate, making people smile as they tend to do, and then sat still during the game. Mason watched some of the game and also slept a little on daddy. Maddox watched and cheered like an old pro. They both made friends with EVERYONE around us. They had there own cheering section that waived good bye as we left. Maddox started blowing kisses. It was great!

The football cookies we made and took with us.

Maddox was so excited to go to the game!

Mason sitting in the chair we bought Maddox at his first tailgate. Seems like it was just yesterday!

Maddox found this birdbath and would not quit playing with it. He poured water and orange juice in it and eventually it got knocked over. Oops!

Mason enjoyed tailgating!

Ty brought a hammock and Maddox thought it was the best.

Daddy enjoyed the hammock too.

It had been a long day . . . we all changed and headed to the game.

Family Fun!

On Saturday, September 5th Hudson, Maddox and Mason's cousin, turned 3 years old. Jerrod had to work, but Maddox, Mason and I went to American Adventures for all the fun! All the cousins on the Wall side of the family were there together. It was a lot of fun and Maddox and Mason had a blast! Mason hung out with Ma and Pa and Maddox played in the Foam area and in the arcade. I am sure there will be many more birthday parties in the future as M & M grow up!

The Georgia Bulldogs were also playing that day so we were all dressed in our red and black!

We all had pizza, yummy!

Maddox was ready to dig into the cake . . . hold on buddy!

Lucas is growing and getting so big . . . such a sweet boy!

One of the dads was so nice and played ball with Maddox.

Maddox playing in the balls with Anna Kate.

I set Maddox up on one of the tables and he loved it. Look at the wind blowing through his hair.

Maddox loved the skee ball!

Mason made a new friend. She was about 2 weeks younger than he is.

All the grandkids with Ma and Pa. Did not get any picture with ALL of them looking and smiling. Oh well!
