Halloween and Trick or Treating has always been a favorite of mine! This year was so fun, we actually went trick or treating around a neighborhood with Matt, Angela, AB, Samuel, Jay, Alicia, Bryson, and Kynsley. They loved it!! It was so cute watching them saying "Trick or Treat" and "Thank you". My favorite part was watching AB keep reaching in one ladies bowl of candy that had told them to just get what they wanted, well AB obviously wanted a lot of different things! It was too cute!
AB opening her treat from Aunt Brooke and Uncle Bobo! Trying Really hard for a smile!
This was a good smile with Mommy!
Samuel's First Halloween!

Minnie Mouse, Dorothy, Iron Man, and the Pumpkin
Best friends Always!!
The first house we stopped at, after this there was no need for adult assistance!~
Last Sunday we decided to have a Halloween Scavenger Hunt. Alicia, Angela, and I had been planning this party for several weeks. We were able to come up with a few good clues to different places around town. We are so happy with how everything turned out and I think everyone had a great time!
The Winning Team! Britt and Heather had the closest guess of how many candy corn were in the jar!!
For Al. You all know how much we love Crimson Tide Football and last weekend Al had the privilege of taking Alex and Montez to the bama game. Alex is being recruited by the Tide and has access to things the normal person would not. Al was more than happy to tag along for the ride! He was able to see locker rooms, coaches, be on the field with the players, walk out of the tunnel the players walk out of, see the National Championship trophy, the Heisman. Needless to say it was the greatest weekend he has had in a long time!!
On Sunday afternoon my mom come up to spend the afternoon with me before Al preached on Sunday evening. I have not seen my mom in a few weeks and I was really missing her. She always makes my day no matter what we are doing! On this particular Sunday she showed up as usual with a surprise! She brought me this awesome Bama wreath that she made for me and the cute pumpkin to hang on my porch wall. I told Al today, I hope my kids love me as much as I love my mom because I love her more than anything!
We also headed to Big Lots, Tuesday morning, and Burke's outlet and found a few items to decorate with and so I am posting a few more items at the house. Some are the same pictures as before, but with mom's touch they look a whole lot better :)
It is time for Destiny's Birthday Week! She will be 3 on Wednesday, so we began her presents on Sunday evening! Lisa Frank clip board and storage box with all the good stuff! Markers, Stickers, notepad, gotta love Lisa Frank!
It is taking longer than I would like, but the decorating is starting to come together! Of course, I am wanting all new stuff for the house, so that is taking a little longer to get just bc I have to save my money! :) I absolutely love my house and enjoy every minute I am here. Although, Al is already talking about selling it in a couple of years...Ugh, we'll see!
A look at my new couch and chair. My living room is starting to come together!
My little Halloween decorations for the front porch!!
I love my bedroom, it is the closest to being completed!
You should all know I have to have part of my kitchen devoted to the Crimson Tide during football season! :)
I have not made up my mind exactly what to do here, but for now this is it. The bottom part Al brought home to me one day after working on a job. He called and told me he had a surprise for me. Of course, I was so excited! When I got home this was sitting in my hallway. He was working on one of the historical houses in Athens and this is the top of the chimney that they replaced. I love different items like this so I was super excited!!
This is the light that I looked for forever. I wanted a stained glass light for my breakfast room, but just could seem to find the right one. We had actually moved into the house before I found it, but I am glad I waited bc I love it!
For all of you that heard Al's story about the toilet paper sconce, here it is...it made it to the bathroom!
I am a wife to one of the greatest people I know, I am the daughter to the most fabulous mother, I am the Aunt to the coolest nieces and nephew around, I am the sister to the funniest and most loving brother ever, I am the sister in law to three fabulous women and two great men, I am the daughter in law to wonderful parents, and I am the mother to a spunky little dog named Muffin!! 2012 has held a lot of changes for me and Al but we are looking forward to 2013!
