Catching Up

I haven't blogged in several weeks. However, much has happened!

For starters: I became an Auntie again! Meet little miss Hayley! She arrived on 9-19-2011. She weighed 8 lbs. and 13 oz. and was 20 1/2 inches long. She's a beauty, isn't she?
And of course, congratulations to my big sister and her husband on their little blessing from God!

And secondly, we took our first family vacation together. We enjoyed a week in the Gatlinburg / Pigeon Forge area of Tennessee. We had such a nice and relaxing time. The weather was gorgeous all week long and the leaves on the trees were just starting to change when we got there, which made for some extra pretty views!

Here are a few photos of our trip! I feel so blessed that we were able to take a trip this year. My husband has been working some c-r-a-z-y long hours and he certainly needed a break. Also, my daughter is absolutely in love with her Daddy. So, getting to spend extra quality time with him put her on top of the world.

Nijel just strolling along at Ripley's Aquarium. He's a pretty easy going kid.

I'll leave it at that for now. A short blog is better than no blog, right?
 Thanks for stopping by!

Love Always,
Mommy (Ashlie)
