Everything is happening so quickly – I wish I could remember to take it all in. The summer of 2012 was a perfect one in my book. We are beyond thankful for an amazing 18-month old, great friends, and sweet times with family.
Caroline and Adalyn are great friends – they love baby dolls, anything on the iphone, and playing with Papa J and Nana.
I can’t imagine where this girl could have picked up her love for ice cream. Michael is so proud.
These two became fast friends now that they can play ‘together’. They share a love of touchscreens, Micky Mouse, and the tomahawk chop. And Benton’s new little sister is Caroline’s favorite ‘bebe’.
“Goooooo dogs!” was a fun addition to her vocabulary this summer.
The trip to the lake included boating, swimming, eating, and watching football. Caroline’s favorites were of course the swimming and eating…
We got to enjoy a sweet wedding at Oak Hill and Caroline got to enjoy her first taste of Cheerwine.
Michael’s 30th birthday will go down in the books as a memorable one to say the least. We shocked him with a skydiving trip with 6 friends. It was a perfect surprise and a perfect day.
Caroline’s second Braves game – much more fun for her this year. She loved the crowd, the ice cream, and the big coca-cola chairs.
Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever! 1Chronicles 16:34

Never has anyone been more excited than Caroline in the ocean. Never.

After an exciting first birthday party this weekend, Caroline has been sleeping a lot, playing with new toys, and getting into everything…of course. I followed her around with the camera for no more than 3 minutes today. This is what I captured:
Playing her new piano.
Sitting with Cooper.
Finding a snack on the stairs.
Eating the found snack.
‘Smiling’ for the camera.
Finding a new place to finish her snack.
Whew! That was a busy 3 minutes.

That’s how many months Caroline has been here.
I’m shocked by that.
She has become super mobile and she’s getting a little difficult to keep up with. I love it.
I’m really sad that summer is over. It’s my favorite time of year, and it was fantastic watching Caroline experience all new kinds of fun.
Eating real food, swimming, and climbing everything.
So far, 6 months is my favorite.

life , money
If I had a few extra thousand dollars lying around, I would use it to redecorate my house. And I would want one person to do the entire thing. Genevieve Gorder.
You may remember her from the TLC show Trading Spaces. I remember that show because we watched it in college everyday at 4:00 before we walked to the dining hall at 5:00 for the early bird special. Just kidding. There was no early bird special. We just went to dinner every afternoon at 5:00 because we wanted to. We were hungry.
ANYway… I remember Genevieve from Trading Spaces and I got excited when I saw that she had a show on HGTV. It’s called Dear Genevieve. People write her emails asking her to redo a room in their house and she designs AMAZING rooms for them. I want to live in every room she has designed on the show, so I’m ready for her to come redo my entire house.
She uses tile like this for a kitchen backsplash.
She uses rugs like this in all kinds of rooms.
She used big hunks of wood for coffee tables and kitchen tables like this one.
Love, love, love.
