Tennessee Thanksgiving

We went to Nashville/Rogersville for Thanksgiving this year, and it was a lot of driving, but totally worth it.

Caden is really into "cooking" lately, and he got to help Cookie with quite a few dishes.

Both Caden and Tate got a little time with my mom's sister, Aunt Kay.

Caden with my cousin Bryan's son, Brady.

This was a stroller that my mom rode in when she was little. I LOVE things like that.

We left on Tuesday and drove to Rogersville, TN where my dad's parents live. That's where we grew up spending Thanksgiving, and it's always a nice break from "life." I remember playing with these waffle blocks when we were little, and Drayton had so much fun riding back and forth since the weather was GORGEOUS!!

Customary hike down by the old cabins. Always a good picture taking spot.

Welcome. The cabins are reportedly haunted. This may be one of the ghosts of the original settlers. She looks inviting, I think.

Hope you got your tickets.....for the GUN SHOW!

Looking at some deer tracks.

This is one of Tate's favorite faces. He's going to have jaw problems later if he keeps opening his mouth that wide.

Cousin Ben played with Caden for hours, and later on so did Cousin Andrew. Caden has some new heros.


What poor taste.

After Thanksgiving dinner, we always sit in the "pit" and sing for however long we all last. I appreciate it more now that I'm older.

4 generations: Caden and Tate, me, my dad, and his parents

Tate and Caden

I know that's a totally boring title. Most of the time when people see Tate, their first comment is how much he looks like a clone of Caden. I definitely think there are similarities, but here's a little comparison so you can see just how different they do look!

Both pictures were taken at the same place. Tate is a bit older than Caden was, but close enough. The first one is of Caden......

And this is his fairer brother, Tate....he's a little Casper for sure.

It'll be interesting to see how they look as they grow up.!

Two Silly Monkeys

Tate is growing like a little weed, and he's just been the most pleasant little thing. His lower lip is constantly out, he's started screeching just to exercise his lungs, and he loves to smile.

Tate's already been taking self defense classes. He's very advanced and has been compared to Chuck Norris.

Showing off his dimple.

Caden has forgotten how to roll over, so we do tummy time with him as well.

I know the next few pictures are pretty much the same. I just can't pick.

Caden has a love/hate relationship with food, so we try to distract him when he's eating. Most of the time it works.

I wonder where he's seen this look.....?

Sometimes...when I'm tired....

I set Caden's alarm and make him fix me breakfast. Don't worry, he's very careful.


Having a baby....

Can really alter your appearance. I'm not sure what Burton's excuse is.

I think we all look a little better in this one.

And one more for your viewing pleasure.....I did get permission to post this.
