4 M's and a little "Boo" who....

Molars Make Me Miserable

Poor Litle Jackson is pretty miserable right now.  He is cutting all 4 of his molars at the same time.  We have been at this for a while.  Dr. P said that he could tell they were starting when we were there in July!  He would walk up to me the other day and pat his mouth as he gave me the most pitiful little pout.  Needless to say Tylenol is our best friend.  He doesn't sleep well when he is cutting teeth so that is also a dead give away for when his teeth are at the peak of popping through.

The rain let up here for a little while yesterday so I started painting my little pots for the front porch.  I need to hurry up and get them done before I kill the mums that I bought to put in them in the first place. 
Sad, I know!!!

Jackson has a Halloween costume!  His tooth-y attitude lately has made him a little monster so I thought this costume might be appropriate....

Which I am going to have to take back tomorrow because I just realized that they are now on SALE!!!  Ugh!!  I hate it when that happens!!
I do think he is going to be pretty cute!  We are getting all geared up for the BIG Haloween Party!!
A friend of ours has a party every year with lots of families at church and we all eat lots of soups and yummy goodies and then all of the little kiddo's head out in the neighborhood and trick or treat until they can't hold any more candy.  It is always such a great time to spend with friends and family!

I am getting excited for Halloween!  Scott is going to get the pumpkins down tomorrow so I'll decorate up the porch.  I have also looked at a bunch of "front door fall decor" on the internet and have some ideas for next year.  I may wait until after Halloween to buy some of the stuff half-price.
 I also gave the blog a little "Boo-tification"
Do you like it... hope so

Well, Ausitn and I are watching "Meet the Robinson's" on Disney so I better go.  We might head out tomorrow and see if we can finalize his Halloween costume and work on getting my little treat bags together!!

So much fun, so little time!!!!

Getting Ready for Fall

I stopped by Lowe's today to see what they had in the way of mums and found these huge pots with nice white mums and these pretty ferns planted in the I picked up a couple. I am planning on putting the ones with ferns in the big pots in front and placing them back on their little square pedestals (that you can't see behind the mums) and then I have some smaller pots that I am going to spray paint a dark brown to match the big pots and put the little mums in there and then put my pumpkins in and around them all and get ready for Halloween. I am going to bring up my fall wreath and put it on the door this week, but I thought I might actually wait until the first day of fall! Hopefully I can keep these watered and looking pretty for a while. I'll post a picture when I get them all decorated and done-- hopefully with two cute little boys in there too! My favortie time of the year is almost here...Happy Fall Ya'll!!

Ready for Fall

We are getting ready for one of our most favorite holidays of the year!!!
Austin has been scouring every catalog that comes in the mail for the perfect Halloween costume!
  He is even trying to figure out what to dress Jackson in this year. 
I told him that I let him pick last year, so this year it MINE!! 
 I want to pick someting cute! 
I olny have a few years of cute left in him before it's Star Wars and Bionicle or Transformers and other creepy things!
I am also ready to decorate the porch and take our annual trip to
Tate Farms!
I have been looking on the internet for ideas on porch decorations.  I am ready for Mums, Pumpkins and Fall Leaves!!
Hopefully I'll have so cute pictures of two little Gobblins on the porch to show you!
Hope everyone has a great day!  Off to clean this place up a bit!

We're On Our Way....

To see the TIGERS play!!!!

It's that time of year!!! There is a crisp breeze in the air and football is around the corner!!! We are heading to Auburn tomorrow night and Austin CAN NOT wait!! He is so excited. He even asked me this morning if I would have him all packed when he got home from school. I told him not to worry that I would get him all packed and ready by tomorrow afternoon. He already has it planned down to his clothes, hat and of course his foam finger!!

The game is not until 6:00pm on Saturday nignt so we'll have some time to spend with friends on Saturday and maybe even hit up Tiger Rags and some of the shops. I want to take the boys on campus and get some pictures of them, too. Austin has 4 frames hanging on his walls that are painted orange and blue that are just begging for some shots of them on campus so we may just have to take care of that. And while we are on campus we will definitely have to get a LARGE lemonade from here....

Toomer's Drug Store...Best Lemonade...In the WORLD.... PERIOD!!

And hopefully, Scott and Austin will find themselves back here on the corner after the game!!! In the middle of it all rolling the corner!!!

So what are your College Football gameday plans...are you tailgaiting for your team or hanging out on the couch and yelling at the TV? Whatever your plans are and whoever you pull for, I hope you Saturday is a great one!!!

WAAAARRRRRRRRRR EAGLE HEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
