Our baby turned 3. Oh how the time flies. We had a smaller party this year with immediate family. The weather was beautiful and the kids were able to run around and play outside. Emma is turning into such big girl. She talks and goes non stop, playing dress up from sunrise to sunset. She is such a joy and we couldn't imagine life any other way.

We started October off by attending the opening night of Ghouls at Grassmere at the Nashville zoo. This was the first time attending and we will definitely go back for years to come. Emma had a blast trick or treating at the zoo, riding the haunted carousel, hayride and dancing to the music. We also went to a different pumpkin patch this year called Lucky Ladd's. It was wonderful and we hope to go back next year with some friends. Emma dressed as her favorite princess, Rapunzel. I took her trick or treating to a couple co-worker's houses. She decided that was enough and wanted ice cream and to watch her halloween shows instead of going around the neighborhood. Bryan got home in time to see her still dressed up and to take a couple of pictures.

We rarely do posts about us but I thought we would do a quick update. It has been a crazy, stressful year to say the least. I'm working full time and Bryan, unfortunately, is still unemployed and staying home with Emma. We pray everyday that God will soon show what his plan is for us. In June we celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary. We celebrated 2 ways, Memorial Day weekend one of my best friends and maid of honor got married in Gulf Shores, AL and we were fortunate to be able to attend the wedding and be a part of it. This was a quick get away for Bryan and I. It was nice to hang out with friends and have some time to be by ourselves. We were able to spend that Saturday on the beach the entire day reading, sleeping and enjoying the beautiful scenery. We attempted to go out that night for a nice early anniversary dinner but we waited a little to late so we ended up with fast food at the condo. In June, Katie was able to get us tickets to one of the CMA Fest concerts. Bryan's mom was in town and was able to watch Emma so we could see the concert. We endured the 100 degree weather and had a great time watching great artists.
So we realize it has been months since we posted a blog. Between work and Emma being on the go constantly, we just haven't had time. So now we update you. Emma is only 3 1/2 months away from turning the big 3. She grows and changes more everyday. She talks non-stop and in complete sentences for the most part. She is potty trained and has been since March when she decided to train herself one day. We had slowly been introducing the idea but she wanted nothing to do with it and then one day, she wanted to be a big girl. She is now sleeping in her transition bed as well and doing great. She loves being home with her daddy and I know they both will treasure this time as she gets older. Here are a few pics from the last several months.
