Paul and I talk often about building a custom home. If we decide to go that route, this dining room will be my inspiration for our own. What a cozy and stylish place to dine!

Well, today is my 30th birthday and I had the most beautiful celebration over the weekend surrounded by fall foliage, wine and good friends. I cannot think of a better way to celebrate the big 3-0! The party was held at Silver Fork Winery in Morganton, NC. This winery really has one of the best views and their wines are some of my favorite. A big thank you to my mom and sister who coordinated the party. It was magazine-worthy and a celebration that I will never forget.
Cheers to year 30! The best is yet to come!
cake: La Patisserie
food: Root and Vine

I am trying to be better at taking pictures of the kids with my real camera this fall. We have had an exciting fall so far. We took the kids to the Clemson/UNC game a few weeks ago. The weather was perfect and the kids did much better than I thought. We tailgated and then Paul and Georgia went inside the game while Graham and I continued to tailgate:) As you can see, we were a house divided that day. Clemson is such a beautiful school and a special place to me. I always enjoy when we get to go back to visit.
Just last week, we took the kids to a pumpkin patch. My in-laws came with us as well. Georgia loved the hayride, playground and petting the animals. By far though, her favorite thing was riding the pony. She is not a shy child by any means. We could hear her little voice just chatting up a storm with the man that was walking the pony she was on.
Hope your fall is off to a great start!
Graham is now 5 months old and is getting so big! Below are some updates on what Graham has been doing. I am documenting these stats here because I had part of my blog printed for Georgia's first year and I plan to do the same for Graham. I have a formal baby book for Graham too just as I did for Georgia, but this space allows me to include a few more details month to month.
1 month 9 lbs 10 oz - 22.5 inches
2 months 11 lbs 7 oz - 23 inches
4 months 15 lbs 13 oz - 24.75 inches
What Graham has been up to:
Rolling from back to front and front to back
Wearing size 6 months clothes
Had first taste of rice cereal and seemed to like it
Love looking at books
Had first little sickness (yucky cough)
Smiling all the time
Lots of big blowouts - one on the bumbo chair that mommy took outside to hose down

Somehow you are already 4 months old, Graham. A major milestone you hit this month was rolling over. You can roll from your back to your tummy. You are quite the talker - jib jabbering away! The giggles you give us are just precious. We love you chubby baby. Happy 4 months!
What Graham has been up to:
-Rolling from back to tummy
-Talking up a storm
-Giggling at mommy, daddy and Georgia
-Loving the bumbo chair
-Loving story time (Brown Bear, Brown Bear is a favorite)
-Loving mommy riding in the backseat :)
