Friday Night Lights!

Being married to an assistant football coach means lots of Friday nights at the football field! We are loving watching the guys play and see the progress they make from week to week. It's also nice to see that all the hard work and time away from Todd is paying off. I said at the first game, "if they don't win, I am going to be so mad since I never see my husband anymore!!" I am pretty sure they lost that game:) But they are now 2-3 which doesn't sound great but they are 2-0 in the district which is GREAT! That means we are tied for first in the district and still have a really good chance at going to the playoffs! They have already accomplished so much this season, including beating McNairy Central, one of their rivals and a team they haven't beaten since the early 1990's! I was so excited! This Friday is our homecoming game (I am allowed to say "our" since Todd is coaching at my Alma Mater) and they are playing Lexington. It should be a great game and hopefully another moral victory for Todd since he taught in Lexington last year!

Ready for the game!

Here they come!

Ella Kate came for a game. She loved it! She loved seeing Uncle Todd on the field and she really loved the frozen pickle juice....eww!

A whole new world!

One of Hudson's big presents he got for his birthday was his new front facing car seat. He barely fit the weight mark, especially since he has had two stomach bugs in the last three months. So we were very excited when we were finally able to get rid of the baby seat and put him in his big boy seat. I will admit it was kind of bittersweet. I am happy that he is a healthy, growing boy and big enough for his new seat, but sad that my baby is turning into a toddler! He looked so big sitting up and looking out the window. It really was like a whole new world for him. He was a very happy boy!! We know that this may not last long and eventually he will hate riding in the car period, but for now we are all enjoying the new seat.

He loved looking out the window! Now...if we could just get rid of that paci!!

First Birthday Bash!!

We celebrated Hudson's birthday last Saturday! It was a great day! Hudson was surrounded by so many of our friends and family that love him to pieces. He loved his party, as much as a one year old can. He liked opening his presents and he LOVED his cake. He wasn't real sure what to do at first but eventually he dug into it. He got so many toys, books and clothes, which mommy and daddy were very thankful for. One of his favorites was from Kealeigh, a dump truck filled with blocks. He loves pushing it all over the place and he is actually playing with it now! He also loves to get in it and be pulled around. He is a mess!! Here are lots of pictures from his party....

More presents.......

Hudson's star cake! The big cake was similar but was delicious! We of course had to get a Dumplin's cake since that is mommies favorite and we got Chocolate Chip for daddy:)

Singing Happy Birthday!! I will admit...this was the moment I cried. I could not believe that my sweet baby boy was turing one. I am blessed by this child every day!!
Yummy cake:)
