The South

Where tea is sweet and accents are sweeter; summer starts in April; front porches are wide and words are long; macaroni and cheese is a vegetable; pecan pie is a staple; Y’all is the only proper pronoun; chicken is fried and biscuits come with gravy; everything is darling and someone is always getting their heart blessed. -unknown

More Pics

The boys with their "finds".


Reese was so proud of his pumpkin.

Brooks got to ride the little train all by his self.

Family shot.


We had a great time. After this, we went to Artistic Expressions in Prattville and made an Autumn plate. I sooooo copied Kristi and made a Fall tree using Reese's foot for the trunk (which he SLEPT through!!!) and Brooks' thumb for the leaves. I hope it turns out as cute as the one Kristi did.

*side note-I had the girl put "Happy Fall Y'all" on the top of the plate. This started a discussion on the way home because I told her that it should be "y'all" and not "ya'll." Then mom and I started discussing it and I started to think I had told her the wrong way to spell it. In case you true southerners want to know, it is "y'all." (I had to look it up) :)

Now I am starting to get sore from the first of 3 Hepititus B shots I had this morning. Since Brent and I are planning on going to Indonesia in the spring, I have to start now. I had a tetanus shot on Thursday. I shouldn't complain too much, Melany gave me the shots, and it looks like I will only have to go to the health department for a Typhoid shot. What is Typhoid anway? Maybe I will look it up too.

I loved your pictures and I think I am going to take Sara and Jay and let them make one for my house:) - and I may make a Christmas tree and let them put lights on with their fingers. Thank you for a great idea!

I love the pictures from the pumpkin patch! It was so neat to say - "I know where that pic was taken!" Kate loved the teepee's, too.

I'm glad you copied the plate - Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery! :) And, you are right -it is y'all (you all).

And, I should remember what typhoid fever is. But I don't... guess I haven't had the need to review that one lately.

I love their matching green Polo's!! We went to the PP this week too, isn't it fun! I didn't know you and Brent were going to Indonesia. Is it a Mission Trip? (probably a dumb question)
