Halloween 2012

We had Spiderman and Cinderella at our house for Halloween this year. The kids had so much fun as did mommy and daddy. We went out in our neighborhood with Austin, Katie, Kristin and Jeremy and the kids got a lot of candy! Blake kept wanting to stop and eat his candy after each stop so we had to remind him that we had more houses to visit. They did so good walking up to the doors and saying trick or treat. We had to remind them to say thank you a few times but they did pretty good overall.
They are getting so big!!

Swearing In and a Shopping Trip

A few weeks ago my mom, sister and I had our yearly shopping trip with my mom's best friend and her two daughters. However before we left on the trip, my brother Jonathan and his fiance' Laura were sworn in as lawyers in the state of Kentucky. The ceremony was short and sweet and I am sure was a day they will never forget.
I am so proud of both of them!

And here is a picture of the girls at our annual shopping trip in Nashville this year. I got most of my Christmas shopping completed on this trip!

I love this time of year. Mainly because I love wearing sweaters and jeans, but also because it is so pretty outside and there are so many holidays coming up.
A few weeks ago Blake and Kylie's school took their annual trip to Huber's to get pumpkins and go on the apple tour. Aaron and I took off work so we could go with the kids like we do every year. We had a great trip and I think the kids did as well.
Blake had to get the biggest pumpkin in the field and Kylie had to get a cute little small one as she put it. Blake forgot that he had to carry it back and struggled with it but he had to do it by himself. They also went into the petting zoo which they both loved.


Alzheimer's Fundraiser

Last December, my grandmother passed away from the horrible disease of Alzheimer's. I never really knew the impact of this disease until it really started to take a toll on her and ultimately took her from us. Since she has passed, I wanted to do my part to raise awareness of this disease. Last year my family took part in the local Alzheimer's walk in honor of my grandmother so we knew this year we wanted to have a much bigger impact in memory of her.
My family decided that we wanted to do a family fundraiser to raise money to contribute in honor of mamaw. We decided that we would put on a corn hole tournament as well as have a raffle with items donated by local businesses. The walk was in early September so in early August, we put on an amazing fundraiser with an amazing turnout.
We ended up raising over $3,000 on that day and after other donations, raised almost $4,500 to contribute in memory of my grandma, Sarah Rose Hall. It is great to be a part of such an amazing community with awesome family and friends.
