Auburn Gal

My in-laws may disown me for this, so SHHHH!


I enjoy putting things on Pierce's head far too much. Here are my two favorite hats for her. :)

Thanksgiving Activities

We had all kinds of fun with family for Thanksgiving. We started at Bana's house (Peter's mom, in case you aren't familiar with the grandparent lingo) for lunch. DELICIOUS! We played with Uncle Joel, Uncle Jimmy, Grandpa and Bana. We missed Isaac though. You'll notice I have no pictures of this event. It's because they had her in an Alabama rocking chair, with an Alabama shaker and an Alabama teddy bear. Somehow my camera seemed to have died during all that. ;)

Then we went for games and sangria at Dooba (my mom.) We played with Dooba and Grandpapa (said like a high-society snob... we're still working on his name,) Aunt Hagen, Aunt Grace, Uncle George and Aunt Brittany, and John Ellis. You can see Pierce studying her dictionary at this event. We're so proud.

Earlier in the week we had dinner with tons of Stegalls, in celebration of Jenny, Will, Annie, William and JEB's return from Asia! We're so glad to have them back! Then we had dinner with lots of Stegalls again, just for fun. Pierce loves her little cousins. Big families are a blast.

Lastly, we went Christmas tree chopping. It's possibly my very most favorite tradition. This was Pierce's 1st experience and I believe she may have loved it. She found some bamboo that she carried around like a walking stick, went on her 1st hay ride, had boiled peanuts and kettle corn, and pet a pony and a dog. Could anything be better? She and Dooba looked so adorable all matching (unplanned.)

The holiday season is off to a great start!

Quick Fix

I have been terrible about blogging, but here's a quick fix until I get all of Pierce's b'day pics together and posted! I can't believe tomorrow is her first birthday.

Tons of fun

Pierce has had the most fun outside.  She LOVES it.  The picture in the pink coat was that cold snap we had a couple weeks ago, before it warmed back up again.  The rest are from the Botanical Gardens with my photography class today.  She was having so much fun with a classmate's little girl, but her lips and hands were turning blue by the time we left.

Little bug

There are 4 things to notice about this entry.  
1- wow she's adorable
2- that dress is marvelous.  I got it from Gap on sale.  My cousin Sarah is always putting her girls in these cute sweater outfits and I love them.
3- Our bug is looking like a bug 
4- She got her 1st skinned knee Thursday at Emi's!  But it didn't slow her down a bit :)

Three's Company

There is so rarely a picture of the 3 of us... and I really like this one. It kinda captures the essence of us.

I usually find Emi and Pierce having some kind of fun.  I think this was an especially fun day!


This is Pierce's new favorite thing to do in the mornings.  It IS a pretty view.

My child loves rocks. And acorns. She's finally stopped putting every SINGLE one in her mouth, and will even spit them out when I catch her with one. Momma Dooba and Pierce and I had a very eventful trip to Guntersville with my photography class Sunday. Halloween was a blast... we went to my cousin Sarah's party and then came home where Pierce played with her cousin Isaac and Bana. Peter and I went to a grown-up party and then one of us went dancing. Can you guess who? :)
