Start of our Fall Trip

Beckett is not a fan at all of haircuts. They are a hassle to say the least!
We left Friday afternoon for our fall trip. We got stuck in traffic in Nashville and again outside of Chattanooga. We should've been to Atlanta by the time we made it to stop for dinner in Chattanooga. we had been stuck so long in traffic I think all of us almost peed in our pants!

The kids still had no idea what we were going to be doing on our trip. They were just excited to go away!
We kept driving and finally made it to Atlanta. We had planned on driving so much further but we couldn't make it any further with all the traffic. I placed these blankets and the Disney gift cards out for the kids to see when they woke up. I hope they're as excited as I am!

Fall Fest and Disney on Ice

Bre spent the night last night and the girls just had to have matching shirts.

I headed out with Britton to Coopertown Fall Fest. We had plans to meet Jack and Melanie for a little while before she had to go to the base to pack more things.
The boys played in a cornhole tournament and although they lost they had so much fun together. On the Wednesday night, they had come up with a song to support their team! Jack and Melanie had to leave early and all Jack wanted was a balloon from the balloon guy. They weren't going to be able to wait and Jack just fell apart. It wasn't the balloon, I'm sure it's all the changes he knows are about to come. Thankfully Carol Ann was in charge this year and was able to get Jack up to the front of the line. Changes are tough.

Tonight we surprised the kids with Disney on Ice.
They were so excited!

Watching their faces take it all in was so worth it.

Piano Smiles

Paityn gave me an amazing foot massage this morning. She is such a caring, kind hearted little girl. She is constantly thinking of others.
After nearly a year, our piano finally got moved in! Love it! Paityn was so excited it was in the house and started playing it right away!

Best Friends

The boys are spending every moment they can together. After school today, Jack came over and we went to church. Britton gave Jack this Bible to remember him by. We sure are going to miss him!

Amazing Race

Jack came and watched Britton play soccer this morning. Melanie, his mom, is going to be deployed right away and Jack is going to have to move away. Both boys are pretty sad about it. We love Jack and the relationship they have!

This afternoon we had the Amazing Race for the youth!

We started at the church and ended up at the Millers. Each year, we try to do a few new/different activities.

What a fun afternoon!
