1st Major BOO BOO

Brooke has skinned her knees countless times but this was the 1st major boo boo she has had. She was standing on a curb and for some reason leaned over to get something and fell off head first into the concrete. It was heartbreaking to see her nose bleeding so much. No stitches, it was more of a brush burn. Poor thing but she has been such a trooper about keeping medicine on it.

FSU/Clemson Weekend

This is the 2nd year that my college friends and I have met up for the FSU/Clemson game. Last year we went to Tallahassee and this year everyone headed here since we are about 45 minutes from Clemson. Cori, Brooke, Justin, and Emily (their daughter) are my college friends that made it and my best friend from high school ironically went to Clemson. So...Amy came down from PA and her friend Jessica from Clemson all stayed here and we went to the game! Such a great weekend...miss having all you girls around. LOVE YOU!! Pete (Scott's great friend from college) and Brooke...oddly enough the Thursday night before everyone came in town Pete was in town for the night because he had been hunting in South Carolina all week. It was so fun seeing him and he and Brooke have such a special bond.

Cori and I downtown on Friday...

Brooke, Justin, and Emily!! She's a doll!

Amy and I...miss you.

Brooke and I ... miss you too.

Mom Mom Suz and John John's Visit plus Halloween

Halloween was so much fun this year!! It happened in 2 parts. The 1st part was Melaina's 2nd birthday Halloween dress up party and the 2nd part was actual Halloween day in which Mom Mom Suz and John John were here!! We had such a great time just hanging out when they were here. We miss them so much and Brooke had such a blast with them!!
