Caleb's first UGA game

We took Caleb to his first UGA game. He LOVED it!!! It was the one day was have had this month that has been freezing!!!! We were all bundled up, as you can see in the pictures. We went with my family, and so Caleb was overjoyed to have Davis with him. Those 2 boys really love each other. :) We had intended to leave around half-time, but Caleb was good to go. We ended up leaving at the beginning of the 4th quarter because I thought I was going to freeze to death!!!

Watching the "bootball" players on the field. This is how he watched the majority of the game. Seriously.

In other news, we have named baby girl!!! Baby Anderson #2 will be Abigail Susan, and we will call her Abby. Abigail is a name I have always loved, and I think Abby Anderson is just TOO cute! :) Susan is my middle name and my mom's middle name, but is what my mom goes by. So her name is extra special to her Grandmommy! We have been planning away for Abby; we have already bought her bedding and decided on what color to paint her room. We have also bought Caleb his "big boy room" furniture and are slowly deciding what to do with it. Our plan is to have him in there by Christmas break...we'll see. :)

It's a....


Michael and I went to the doctor this morning, and found out our precious baby is a GIRL!!! We are over the moon happy, and can't wait to meet her. Her name is still in the works, but as soon as we have named her I will make it known! Big brother, Caleb, told me he wanted a dog when I asked him if he wanted a sister. Oh well - we have a few months to get him used to the idea of her! :)

Halloween Weekend

**WARNING: This is a LONG post! Enjoy!**
We had a wonderful, busy weekend! We had a lot of family time, and Caleb is at the age where he understands what we are doing and has a BLAST! I know I have said this 10,000 times, but he is so much fun and brings to much joy to our lives!

On Saturday we went to CornDawgs. Corndawgs is a corn maze/pumpkin patch/kids paradise not too far from our house. We went last year, and Caleb was OK with it, but this year it was totally different. He was big enough to do some of the fun things, and the things he wasn't quite big enough for daddy stepped up and did it with him. Here are some pictures of our fun morning at Corndawgs!

The first activity we did was the cow train....Caleb was NOT a fan, but thinking he would love it once it got stated, we kept him on it for the ride. This is the before picture...

Well, we weren't right. Caleb HATED it! The man said he cried most of the time, and when they pulled back up Caleb was screaming "MY DADDY!!!!" Opps. He never let got of the side. Ever.
After the cow train he headed over to the slides. They had built this HUGE hill, and they had built 3 slides. Michael took Caleb down 2 of them. One of the slides was a tunnel, and mommy and daddy were nervous to let him go down that even though he kept saying "tunnel slide," because Michael couldn't go with him. More on that later :)
After the slides we hit up some of the other activities like the the playground, hay tunnel, kiddie corn maze, corn box, and the petting zoo.

After all that fun it was time to go. As we were leaving Caleb was still talking about the tunnel slide, so we thought we could divert him to the other 2 slides. Yea...not so much. Michael and Caleb climbed the hill, and Caleb sat himself down and went down that slide all by himself. Needless to say HE.LOVED.IT! He went down it at least 5 times, and was upset when we had to go. Opps - guess we should have let him go down earlier...

Then Sunday was "the day." We had been talking to Caleb about Halloween and trick-or-treating all week, but he still wasn't quite sure. All he knew was that he wanted a sucker and M&Ms. This year Caleb was Mickey Mouse. If I say so myself he was the cutest Mickey I have ever seen. The first few houses he wasn't sure and made Michael and me say trick-or-treat, but by about the 4th or 5th house he was good to go. By the end of the night he didn't even want us coming to the door with him!!! Caleb's cousin, Savannah, joined us as Minnie Mouse. Minnie didn't love her ears. Caleb's friend, Matthew, also joined us a gorilla.

a very excited and precious Mickey Mouse
