Kentucky Derby Party

This year we were lucky enough to have our good friend Grant visiting from Texas to be part of the Kentucky Derby Festivities!  We dressed fancy, made Kentucky Hot Browns, and the guys drank mint julips...



Savannah's 4th dance recital

After a long hiatus, I promise to keep the blog going again!

Savannah took Ballet basics at Atlanta Dance Central this year and performed as a gnome in the ballet portion of the recital.  She moved to the Youth Program this year and performed Friday and Saturday nights.  Special thanks to Gram, Poppy, and Jan for being there to see this sweet ballerina!

Lake Lanier Magical Nights of lights...

Happy 6th Birthday Savannah

It was a special day for a special girl who turned 6!  

She woke up to balloons and steamers in her room and in the dining room...


Then it was time for pancakes with sprinkles in them...



Picture time..




Party time!  We celebrated Savannah at Davinci's Donuts, the girls colored, drew on the big chalk board, played donut games, decorated donuts, and had so much fun!














Thanksgiving 2016 in Charleston

Our annual visit to Charleston Place Hotel to see the trains - always impressive!


And of course, all Cal wanted to do was see the horses and pet them...he would have stayed for hours...


Sweet Aunt Carol who is a balloon artist threw Savannah an early 6th birthday party and she always blows us away with her talents!


Not sure what was going on here...


Mimosa's on Thanksgiving morning - yes please.


Turkey time...



I snuck up on these 2 Thanksgiving night around bedtime...wish I knew what they were talking about, must have been a "Calvin" thing.


Friday we headed out to Bee City which is a local animal petting zoo...




And then someone was exhausted....


This is Cal and Dan's Uncle Gavin who is 84, they had so much fun playing and were both laughing, was sweet to see!


Random photos

I had a girls day the Sunday before Thanksgiving and we headed to Augusta to visit the Final Cut - an outlet of Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters.  We spent about 3 hours in the store having the best time, then found this restaurant in downtown Augusta with amazing cakes!


Calvin has been really into dinosaurs...


Savannah had a Thanksgiving performance in her class followed by Thanksgiving lunch




Savannah participated for the first time this year in "Once Upon a Holiday" at her dance school...



Don came for a visit...


Our sweet neighbor Marilyn shared this photo - the Queen bee, a worker bee, a peacock, and fireman from Halloween!


Savannah and I hiked Amicalola falls on a Teacher work day she was home from school!
