baked apples

Need an easy fall dessert? Here you go!

Core an apple.

Place apple onto the bowl stem of your apple baker.

Fill the hollow core of the apple with brown sugar and sprinkle with cinnamon.

Place a small piece of butter on top of the apple and heat in the microwave for 5 minutes.

Your easy fall dessert is ready! Don't forget to pair it with Russian tea!

happy 2 months!

Another month has come and gone so quickly. Georgia is changing so much each day. We just love her sweet smile!

What Georgia has been up to:
- She smiles a lot more now which we just love
- She coos and "talks" to us
- She has a new favorite song - 'Dogs Days are Over' by Florence and the Machine. She likes when I sway with her to the beat of the music. It seems to help stop her crying. We are hoping the 'dog days' of colic will be over soon:)
- She continues to love strolls and car rides

Happy 2 months Georgia! You are the apple of our eyes and you bring such joy to our lives!

Since the seasons are changing and my life has been forever changed recently, I felt like the blog needed some changes too. Hope you enjoy the new look! Happy Weekend! Lets hear it for those Clemson Tigers!

family photos

Here are just a few of the many wonderful photos that the talented Christine leGrand of Greenville, SC took of our little family of 3. Georgia was just 14 days old. She has already changed so much. Thanks Lauren C. and Christine! We will cherish these always!

georgia's first trip

We took Georgia on her first trip over the long Labor Day weekend. We headed to the mountains on Friday afternoon. Here is the only bag we had to pack for Georgia.
Haha! I wish. Our car was loaded down. We no longer travel lightly (pack n' play, moses basket, boppy, clothes bag, diapers, get the picture). I was a little nervous about how she might do, but she did great. Our trip got off on a rough start with some car trouble and then that got Georgia off on her eating schedule so we had to make a stop, but she did fine despite the hiccups. We are just so thankful that she is a good car rider.

Saturday we enjoyed playing and picnicing in the park in Blowing Rock and walking around Broyhill Park.

Grammy and Grandaddy with their granddaughters!

We had some ice cream from Kilwins later that afternoon and it was yummy! Saturday night we celebrated my dad's birthday. I have no pictures from this. I've come to the conclusion that I probably won't be able to take as many pictures as I used to. Not that I don't want to, but I just have fewer opportunities now. If only I had more hands! Georgia got upset while we were out to dinner so my hands were full and I just forgot to take a picture. Paul and I are now used to not eating together. He holds her while I eat and then we switch. Hopefully we will be able to eat more meals together real soon:)

Sunday we ventured over to Sugar Grove and spent more time outside. The weather was lovely.

Time was spent playing on the playground. Yes, we all played on the playground and it was so much fun. I felt young and free again!

We ended our day at Grandfather Winery in Banner Elk, NC. It is a quaint and beautiful winery on the side of the mountain. The wine was delicious.

Happy Birthday Granddaddy!
