Big News!

Andie and Copper have news to share!  They are going to be big sisters!  In July we will be welcoming Baby Scott, the 5th member into our family.  We are all so excited!

Clemson Game Get-Together

We had a great time at friends' eating oysters, playing, eating more yummy food, reading books, and eating some more.  It was a pre-Orange Bowl gathering that was so much fun!

Most everyone left and Ian and Andie got into the PJs to enjoy the start of the game.  Our Tigers didn't pull it out, but we will always be Tigers to the core...our blood do runneth orange!

Happy New Year!

We had a great time New Year's Eve hanging out with neighbors and friends.  The whole street plus gathered in the street with food, fires, and fun!  Andie enjoyed all "her friends."

Christmas Festivities

Andie was drawn to Uncle Bob this year.  She sat a talked to him about all kinds of things.

Then he got ahold of the new puppy, and Uncle Bob became Andie's best friend.

Santa brought all kinds of fun things for Andie.  One huge hit was a new little bottle to feed her baby.

...and a microphone.

Nana gave Andie a scooter, and she thinks she is Super Scooter Andie!

G and Papa gave Andie a swingset!  She loves it!  And this great weather we've had has allowed for a lot of outdoor play on it.

It has a super fast slide.

A great fort up top with a steering wheel for adventures to "treasure island"

And just before Christmas was over, we remembered to get some family pics! 

The whole Griffith Gang. (Top to bottow, L to R - Darrell, John Edward, G, Papa, Baylis, Andie, Megan and Mark)

Aunt Megan and Uncle Mark gave Andie a book about....Super Andie!  It is hilarious and she loves it!  Check out the outfit on my super daughter!

Aunt Megan and Uncle Mark also gave her a new big girl doll, Julia.  She's a cheerleader and Andie thinks she is so cool!

Christmas was wonderful!  We got to enjoy the company of family and friends and each other.  Andie enjoyed it all.  We tried to emphasize the reason for the season...the birth of Jesus Christ our Savior.  We sang Happy Birthday to Jesus and prayed special thank-prayers for all of our MANY blessings including Jesus Himself!

Charleston Christmas Carriage Tour

G got us tickets to do a night-time carriage tour led by Santa himself.  While waiting we got to pet the horses and take fun pictures!  It was really fun!
