We Are Family

And nothings beats that.
Add a little of mama's love....

And a bit of daddy's charm....

And sister's energy....
And it makes for a fun day on the Plains! If only my Auburn Tigers had shown the love and energy we had....seriously, Kentucky???

I do love me some holidays....

I'm just sayin. I think I decorate for everything! I have been hounded by my friends about my Easter tree for years! And so what if I need three Christmas trees. Holidays make me happy! And this is all my mama's fault anyway!
So I couldn't resist this beauty!
And the table's set for any hungry goblins who may stop by....
Don't be scared by the spooky haunted house with the windows all a'glow! And these little ghostly guys are just waiting to be gobbled up! (Which means if they're not taken care of at bunco they're going to work...AWAY from me!!) :)

He has a name!

Meet "Andrew" James Horstman, and his beautiful mom Aimee (24 hours after giving birth!). She's a rockstar, and he's a heartbreaker already!!

Baby Fever!

So maybe I don't have all the right "tools" right now to cure this baby fever, but I've got some cuties around me I just can't get enough of! It's plain killing me! For now I'll settle for being "Aunt" Jenn. And I'll just plain eat up every minute of it! As my dadgum clock ticks on.... (and my mom smocks gowns for invisible grandchildren, God love her....) :)
This weekend in Birmingham I got to spend a few precious hours with this baby hoot, Katherine Crowe, who loved on me and made me melt. She's walking around and getting into waaay too much now that's keeping mom on her toes! I couldn't get enough of her angel face! And catching up with the mama bird Anna Kate just wasn't long enough, I will be back soon!!

And for the record, mamas are never too old to play in the ball pits! It makes them extra cool!

Next up for me was a trip to Dahlonega (North GA) for work on Tuesday, and on the drive home I just had to stop in the ATL to love on these chubby cheeks and envy these forever long eyelashes on Miss Blair Verdigets! I'm mean seriously, look at this face. I could eat her up! But, instead her mom and I decided to eat up our favorite dishes at our favorite Mexican restaurant TAXCO!! (I know you're jealous people, it's DE-vine). And last but certainly not least (just newest and tiniest!), today Baby Boy Horstman was born!! Mama Aimee did amazing during surgery, and Sam is so proud to have a son! (though as of tonight he is yet to be named....) Lord have mercy.
Seriously, this baby is beautiful. Pictures will never do him justice. I mean look at these toes.

Football and Birthdays

First and foremost, the busy season is OVER!! With work that is. I can play again. I can leave the office when the sun is still shining, and by the way, when did fall get here?? I love this weather!
The weekends have been busy with football, which makes me so happy. The most interesting tailgate so far certainly being for the West Virginia game....aka the PERFECT STORM on the Plains!! It started out beautiful....

But by the time we headed toward the stadium....the skies darkened "just a tad."

So after 4 inches of rain in 45 minutes and lots of lightning causing rain delay after rain delay, the game finally got started. And after a little drizzle in the first quarter, not another drop of rain the whole game! Rocky at first, but we pulled out a win, despite the crazy day! Another great day in Auburn, like I ever doubted it! WDE!

Next up, another one bit the dust. Turned 30 that is!! My friend Casey had a SURPRISE birthday party for her hubby, Blake, and she pulled it off perfectly!! The best part was playing with all my favorite girls!
