Aiden was lucky enough to be in the Spring Hill Christmas parade with his football team. And the parade is a bit different since it is at night... so all the floats, etc were lit up. It was fun watching and he had a blast!! Here are few photos.. all of them are fuzzy - couldn't get the right setting for moving items at night :)... but you get the idea!!!
December has started so our family Elf, Buddy, is back in action. He returned with a fun North Pole breakfast for the boys and a few gifts. The boys love looking for him every morning and seeing what he is up to. Wish he could stay around all year!!

We had a great month! Aiden received an award for perseverance! He is such a hard worked and we are very proud!!! Evan along with the first grade classes performed a Barnyard Moosical! It was lots of fun and very cute. They also enjoyed a fun fall party with their classes. And, of course, we celebrated Thanksgiving with family. It was a great time. It was great for the boys to see their cousins! Kierlin is so cute and Rio is getting so big! We had a great weekend. We got to see the Rockettes in the wonderful Christmas show here in Nashville. And the kids had a blast! Enjoy the pics!! Aiden getting his award.

So we went looking for a puppy last weekend and brought home a kitten! She is adorable. The shelter had named her Alison, which doesn't really fit a kitten. So the boys have changed it to Ally. She is a cutie!

This month isn't over yet but it has been a great one! We had a great visit with Grandmom and Grandad Bell, we visited a local farm to get pumpkins and other fun things, we carved pumpkins, we watched Grammy and Poppy take off on a hot air balloon ride, and watched Aiden play lots of football. Onto the important things... the pictures! Aiden's newest position, center! He did great!! So proud. They recently ended their season with a loss in the playoffs but played so well all season. Good Job!!

Fall is my favorite time of year for many reasons!! First is the weather. Nice mid 70 degree days and cool evenings. Perfect for jeans and a sweatshirt and to sit around a fire!! I also love the holidays to come... Halloween and Thanksgiving. A great family time of year to have fun, be silly and give thanks for everything we have. Also it is football season!! (that is American Football for my international friends :)) Watch Aiden play on Saturdays and the Ravens play on Sundays. Also there is food that is always thought of as "fall" food... apple dishes, chilli, pumpkin dishes, halloween candy...just so many yummy things to eat. But one of the best things is actually seeing the change of colors. It is always so breathtaking. In fact, I stopped at a park the other day just to take a couple of photos. They are from my phone so they are not great but you get to see the beauty that is Tennessee in the fall!!! I wish I could bottle the feeling of fall...So relaxing and gorgeous! Enjoy the photos.....

Wow another month gone by... We have been home for 5 months now and it seems like we just got here. Although lots has happened!! Let's see... Aiden has been playing his football games and has done very well.. Right now they are 3-2. He plays lots of positions on offense and defence. He is number 27.
Wow!! Can't believe my baby is 7 years old. It has gone by sooo fast. He is a very happy, energetic and caring kid. He also can drive us all nuts but it is all worth it!!! He had his birthday party at a place called Glow Galaxy... bouncy houses, mini golf, and other fun games all in the dark. Everything glows and has an alien/outerspace theme... so that was the theme. So fun!!
