Cute Christmas PJs

These pjs were another find at the consignment sale this fall. I love them, they are so cute! Especially the little flap for her cute bottom. And if you'll notice the one-boot-on...she clobbered around all night like that! :o) I just had to laugh.

A Few Christmas Pics

Thanks for the fun shirt Aunt Gail and Uncle Terry!
Love it!

Darrell and I went to the Holiday Market Preview Party last week and had a blast! It's one of my favorite things to do. Thanks D for a great night!

All of "Andie's" ornaments are at the bottom of the tree. She has done a great job "touching with one finger." :o)

I found this dress at the "Belles and Beaus" consignment sale this fall and I just love it!

We're ready for a fun Christmas! I love this time of year with all the parties, festivities, hussle and bussle. And Andie loves all the "yights"! (lights)

A Tree Hunt

A Christmas Tree hunt!...
...at Lowes. So it's no hay ride through the woods, but we still had fun.
Andie and Daddy found the perfect one.

Thanksgiving at Mama G and Papa's

What a perfect Thanksgiving with so many things to be thankful for. All the Griffith family was together to celebrate. We ate good food and had a great time.
Andie makes this adorable face when you tell her to smile.
Because we were all together, we gave Mom her Christmas present a little early. We all went in together and got her a huge (17 foot) Tiger Eye feather flag. It flies up and down on a long pole that you stick in the ground. It really is awesome! And she loved it!

Andie playing in Uncle Jed's worn out laundry hamper. Oh the things she can find to play with at Mama G's!
Horsin around with Uncle Terry! The guys got to go hunting out at the farm. Megan and I joined them a little later in the day to shoot skeet. It was so much fun! And for not having shot a gun in years, we did pretty well!

Ready for Christmas in her Santa PJs with Mama G's beach Santa by her side.

18 Months

I thought now would be a fun time to post our nightly ritual...bath, with Copper helping of course! And look at all that hair! Ok, so maybe one day.

Well, this post is a little late, but Andie's 18 mos post is an important one. She ways about 23lbs, wears sizes 18 and 24mos and size 4 shoe. She wants to be big so bad and loves to be a "helper." She loves to vaccume and swiffer, brush her teeth, play outside, climb, and chase the dog and other children. She loves babies and her daddy. She loves giving hugs and kisses and will just randomly do both...love it! This month she is talking up a storm. Some of the words she's saying are:

Copper, dog, please, up, down, Ho Ho, Santa, tree, no, yes maam, sneeze, read, up stairs, help, love you, Andie ("Anyee")...

She tries to repeat anything you say, and usually gets it close. She is such a trip and keeps us in stitches. Her new vocabulary and has come with a new-found independence which includes quite the spunk. She is trying to find her boundaries (to put it nicely :o)). So I hope you can tell we are having a blast with our baby girl, enjoying every minute, good and not-so-good. We are all super excited about Christmas and how much fun it will be with Andie.

Andie and her Best Friend

Andie loves her Copper. And Copper loves Andie...at least I think so. She does such a great job "putting up" with Andie and the tail-pulling, stepping and climbing on, cuddling with, and food sharing. I love, though, when Copper lets Andie lay down with her...it is so cute and sweet.

Andie loves her "Doggies." That's what she calls Copper. And Copper is so great with her...as you can see. She climbs all over, sits on, lays on Copper all the time. Even though I'm sure Copper gets so annoyed, she just lets her. I love my two babies!

Clemson Reunion

Last weekend we had fun visiting with all my girlfriends from college before the Clemson/NC State game. And boy was it cold. But so wonderful to see everyone and the growing kids and new babies. I love yall!

Not a happy camper. Wouldn't you know it...

But it got better! And she had a blast playing with Peyton and the other kids.

The girls!

Running around playing with the other kiddos once she finally got over being in a bad mood.

The girls with the kids! It was GREAT to see everyone and their little ones. It amazes me where we all are and how easy it is to start off right where we left off...even if it's been months since we've seen each other. I love these girls!

Andie and "G." Love it!

Trick or Treat

Our precious little ballerina with her pumpkins!
Andie with her best pal Avery! They had a blast "treating" together. Mr. Erik was so great to let Andie hitch a ride in the wagon with Avery.

Ready to go!

Aren't all these dressed up kiddos precious!
Mrs. Tammy had some special treats for Andie.

Playing with her "treats" when we got home. There were many thoughtful families that made little goody bags for the youngest "treaters" with toys and goldfish. Andie had a blast and it was so much fun watching all of the little ones trampse through the streets. Here's to a great October.

Boo at the Zoo

Last Thursday we went to Boo at the Zoo at Riverbanks. It was great! Andie loved watching all of the other kids in their costumes dance to the DJ.
Oooo, spooky fog!
Big girl in her ballerina costume. She loves wearing her tutu, so we thought "why not?" for Halloween.

Riding the tiger.

Hope everyone had a very happy and fun Halloween.

Pitiful Monday

Poor Bug was feeling pretty puny on Monday. She just wanted to snuggle up and watch TV (which she never does). At one point, she decided she wanted to cuddle with Copper and just layed down on Copper's bed and watched cartoons. She's feeling better now. But it was too sweet not to capture.

Clemson/GA Tech Game

We had a great weekend at Clemson. The weather was beautiful and the extra time there was nice to actually get to enjoy Clemson. I even got to run Perimeter...I felt like I was in college again! :o) And it was nice that the Tigers won, too!
I love this picture of my two favorite people! Bug loves her daddy!
Andie loves to smell the flowers!

Our great friends Sandy and Andrea came by the tailgate. It was so wonderful to see them.

Aunt Megan came up for the game! We loved spending time with her. She just wanted a normal picture, but as you can see, Darrell jumped in! :o)

Loving...and riding...the tiger! Cute girl!

Fun with Friends

This past weekend we were able to go up to Clemson on Thursday night so we got to enjoy spending time with our friends, the Eptings, on Friday. Andie loved playing with James and Campbell. It was great to get to see them for more than a few minutes. Thanks for having us!

Clemson/MD Game

Go Tigers!
Yummy cupcake! Happy Birthday Anna!

Andie and her Uncle Jed. They've really gotten a lot closer with it being football season. Jed only has about 1 1/2 months of school left until he graduates! So bitter sweet.

The only family picture we have gotten...and it's not great.
