A Visit with Aunt Kate and friends

Today was a fun day. Anne Morgan, Mollie, Beasley and I headed to Montgomery to visit with my best friend Kate (a.k.a. Aunt Kate to the dogs and AM). I wish I had my video camera out upon arrival. You see, our dogs go way back. In college the dogs, Kate, Trey and myself were together ALL OF THE TIME. We had such a blast. Whether it was hanging out with a HANDFUL of LARGE dogs in the apartment, cooking dinner or at the park we had great times. We've always said that if anything happened to one of us the other would take care of the dogs. We get each other. And our dogs.

Kate lives in Montgomery and we don't see each other as much as we would like. That means the dogs don't either. Mollie and Kate's Rottwieler Cash are girlfriend and boyfriend as are Beasley and her lab Dixie. Seriously. (I would find an old pic of the group but I put everything on discs and don't know where to begin). She's added a Boxer, Chop, to the mix now who fits in great. The point of all of this is that they go NUTS and I mean NUTS when they get to see each other. Most people would probably freak out, not us. We think it's great and apparently Anne Morgan did too. I really wish I had video of it. She wasn't phased at all.

After lunch we drove down the road to visit her horse Clipper. I pulled the camera out for this one. I have always loved horses and I hope AM does too. Hopefully she will actually get to spend more time with them than I have. She had her first experience today. We are going to have to keep this up- make it a more regular visit. I know she and I would enjoy it as much as the four legged friends do!

Anne Morgan will be the last person to ride Clipper.

Here is Clipper and his sidekick Josie Jr. (mini donkey)

Weeeeee!!!!!!

Yeah! The swing set is finished! (Well, for the most part! We still have to hang two more swings and screw in the rock wall after the ground is level but little miss priss won't be doing that anytime soon anyway)

We finished up just in time to let Anne Morgan swing for 5 minutes before she went to bed last night. Of course this morning, right after her bottle we went out for more swinging and sliding. Last night it was so cute- she's been playing with the slide for the last couple of days since the swing wasn't up but the second that she saw me hang the swing she made a beeline for it! I loved it! She knew exactly what it was and couldn't wait to swing. She did not want to stop either, same thing this morning. Here are a couple of pictures from this morning.


She loves the slide too. I have to be careful b/c she can climb all the way to the top by herself!!!!



It is so nice to have it finished. I have a feeling we are going to spend MANY MANY hours out there and there will be many pictures to come through the years. I love you Anne Morgan! Happy early Birthday!

Here and There

I've become really bad at this whole blogging thing. We have been extremely busy-that's my excuse. If we haven't been on the road, we've been home keeping busy with the yard (which I still owe you a post on the renovations) and building a play set for AM's birthday, sewing like crazy or fixing up other things around the house.

Here are some pictures from some recent places.

1. Trey's mom's lake house for her birthday.









more please!!! and hurry!

2. Cook out at Forrest and Teresa's. AM was slightly obsessed with their dog Daisy.
(Her hair and bow look funny b/c she was so sweaty from being by the pool earlier!)




3. My grandmother turned 89 Saturday so we had a little party for her!

Olivia passed out leas for everyone to wear...it was a luau! :)

4. Daddy's Day ice cream cone!

2 Quick Videos

Here are a couple of videos. One is of AM a week or so ago, walking. Several people have mentioned that they want to see her in action, she moves so quickly these days it's hard to! The other is of her in the sink last week at her Grandmommie's (Trey's mom) after a messy spaghetti dinner. SHe was so funny, she wouldn't quit drinking the running water!

Can you believe she is ELEVEN MONTHS OLD now? It's so crazy. We are so busy for the next month that before I feel like I can even blink she will be ONE!

Birthday Party!

Anne Morgan went to her first birthday party this weekend. Her friend Addison turned one and had a swimming party! Lots of fun was had by all. Here are a few pictures from the party. Once again I am guilty of a lack of posts, delayed post and short commentary but we are sharing a computer cord again and I haven't been able to get to the pictures since I downloaded them until now. Once a little bit of time passes, I'm over blogging about it. Sorry. Also, thanks to AM, I am missing quite a few keys on my laptop now. That makes it pretty hard to type on here. It's ok, a new one will be coming soon. Maybe then I will be motivated a little more to stay a little more up to date on here. I'll just have to keep it away from AM which means I can only use it if she's asleep! If she sees someone on one of the computers she beelines for it!

Silly girl!


In other news, Anne Morgan is completely on the move walking now. All she is working on now is standing up on her own without pulling up. The only time she crawls now is to get to something to pull up on. She has figured out how to stand up a couple of times. It won't be long!!

It is so hard to believe that in a month my sweet baby girl is going to be ONE!!!!
