It’s Football Time…

in Tennessee!!!!Ray is literally counting down the minutes until we see the much anticipated first game of the season. We’re wearing our Orange and White and there was a crispness in the air this morning. Oh yes, it’s football time.

Feeding the Ducks

One of our favorite local Soddy Daisy restuarants is Steve’s Landing. They have the best queso dip and onion rings! Steve’s sits right on the lake and has outdoor seating for you if you want to dock your boat and walk up in your bathing suit. During the summer it is a pretty busy place! […]


Fear~a distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc., whether the threat is real or imagined; the feeling or condition of being afraid.

Our Little Cuddlebug

Jonah & DaddyAugust 2007 One thing we love about Jonah is that he loves to cuddle…always has. Last night as we were getting him to wind down for bed, he was going back and forth between mommy and daddy-cuddling for a minute, giving a kiss, and then just as we’d get settled…it was time to […]

Super […]

It’s gotta be a fluke…

I’ll spare you the pictures…but we’re excited at the Happy Brown House! We’ve not “officially” been trying to potty-train because I didn’t think he was ready, but occasionally Jonah will sit on the potty for a few seconds and we’ve talked about it lots. Tonight before his bath, I suggested he sit on the potty. […]

Batting Practice…

Jonah has been hitting with a tee for a while, but look what he did today… We were speechless the first time he did it….then he did it several times in a row…I decided I needed to get this on tape so we can remember it when he makes the “big time”. Anyone know a […]

Disney Vero Beach Resort Recap

We’ve been back for a week from our vacation to Disney’s Vero Beach Resort, but I’ve been so busy with the laundry, unpacking, and getting Jonah back to our normal routine that I haven’t posted about it. We had a wonderful time! There were no mishaps (unlike the previous vacation) and we truly felt relaxed. […]
