The "Deep Fried" NC State Fair!!

Last Monday we ventured out to the NC State Fair. This was Reese's first time at the fair...not counting last year when she was in my tummy! The weather was actually fall like which was nice for a change. Robbie and I ate way too much including roasted corn, fried chicken, deep fried reeses' cups and then we shared a deep fried snickers bar...Yummy! If you have never tried one of these little "deep fried" pieces of heaven you definitely should. You don't know what you are missing! Reese was able to sample some of the fresh squeezed lemonade provided by her Aunt Tamara!! Reese loved the lemonade and kept going back for more! We took Reese on two rides, the carousel and cars. I think the carousel went a little too fast for Reese and her Daddy's liking! She was reaching for her Daddy before the ride was over. Overall, we had a wonderful time. I know we will definitely visit next year...Robbie wants to try the deep fried pecan pie!!

I think Robbie was trying to show off his Conference Championship Ring!!

Don't you just love those facial expressions!!

And these too!

Five Years

On this day 5 years ago and at this exact hour, Robbie and I became husband and wife. October 18, 2003 was truly my "cinderella" moment and a day I will never forget. I loved my wedding day and was so happy to be marrying my best friend! Robbie is a GREAT husband and best of all a WONDERFUL daddy!! Happy Anniversary...I love YOU!

Just announced Husband and Wife!!

We have a 10 month old!!!

Reese turned 10 months old last I am a little late with this posting! I always say this but it is hard to believe that I have a 10 month old baby. These past 10 months have been some of the best and in just 2 short months I will have a 1 year old!! Reese is crawling and cruising everywhere. She actually took her first 2 steps yesterday!! Yay!! Reese loves to say "Dada" and says it all day long. When Robbie comes home and we hear the garage open, she will cruise to the end of the ottoman and wait for him. While she patiently waits for him to open the door, she chants "dada, dada, dada"...very cute! She does say "mama", but it is usually when she is really tired and wants me to hold her. And I love to hold Reese and cuddle with her!! Like I have said before Reese is truly a blessing and I thank God everyday for bringing her into our lives!! Enjoy Reese's hat pictures below!

The Razz & Tazz Farm

We decided to take Reese to the Razz & Tazz Farm this past weekend. I thought there was going to be a big pumpkin patch, however, to our surprise the farm's specialty is a corn maze. The farm has a maze for adults and one for kids. Unfortunately, for us we were too late to test our sense of direction. I'm pretty sure I could make it out the maze...not sure about Robbie!! Just kidding!! Robbie's sense of direction has improved tremendously over the years!! We had a great time walking around the farm and as you can see in the pictures below Reese had a wonderful time, too! She especially loved the "Elsie" cow!! Just look at her facial expressions...priceless!!!

We had a wonderful time celebrating my nephew, Evan's, 2nd birthday this weekend. It was held at his Grandma's house in Roxboro. The weather was perfect and the food was delicious. All the kids had a great time running and playing in the yard! I told Reese that she could run with the children next year!! Here are a few pictures from the party...Enjoy!
