Very Thankful!

Cary and I spent this holiday weekend driving all over Georgia to visit family and friends. Our first stop on Thanksgiving day was to McDonough, GA to visit Cary's grandmother.

Weston is making sure his name is on the "nice" list while Julia is picking out toys. And as you can tell, Cary and I are just trying to keep up with them!

We headed back to Cary's parents and watched the Auburn-Alabama game the next day. We then drove back to Thomson to visit my parents and made our last travel stop to my grandparents' in Hazlehurst on Saturday.

We had a great thanksgiving weekend...and that also means we only have one week of clinic left!

Our Koozie

I have to share our tie-the-knot tailgate koozie with ya'll! You can kind of see them in our guests' hands in some of the pics from the previous post, but not fully. And I realized after the shower, that I didn't get a picture of it! So here it is:
Cute, huh?

Tie-the-Knot Tailgate

We had our first wedding shower this past Saturday in Athens, GA. It was a gameday tailgate shower at the UGA-Auburn game.
First, we want to thank the hosts, Jill & Courtney. They are Kelly's Maids of Honor, and they did a great job organizing the entire day.

We had a great time with everyone, playing cornhole, eating great food, and chatting with friends.
We also got some wonderful gifts and are set for our own Georgia tailgate.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by. Kelly and I greatly appreciated it.
And it was a bonus that Georgia won. Go Dawgs!
And congratulations to Tampa and Lindsey, who are now engaged.

Build a Bear

I visited Kelly in Savannah this weekend. We decided to go to Build a Bear Workshop to make thank you gifts for our flower girl and ring bearer, my cousins. We chose a pink and blue bear, as you can see below. It was Halloween, so the employee who helped us stuff the bears was dressed up as the mad hatter. Kelly placed a little red heart in each one before they were stuffed.
Next, we "fluffed" the bears with air and brushed them...a little goofy but part of the experience.
We named them "Weston" and "Julia." They are registered and even have a birth certificate (their birthdate is our wedding date).
Finally, we took them home. They are boxed up and waiting to be given to the twins. We are still working on the bears' outfits, that portion will remain up in the air.
And don't worry, even though these kids are very smart, I don't think they'll be reading the blog, so the surprise is safe.
