July started off on a sad note as we lost our beloved Chipper. He was almost 15 years old, and was such a sweet part of our family. He was a good boy, and lived a good life.
We went to the lake with our besties for July 4th and had fun celebrating and enjoying summer.
We also had our long anticipated beach trip in July. Hudson loves the beach so much. He lives to get up and go for a 2-3 hour bike ride around the island then spend the rest of the day boogie boarding and swimming.
At the end of the month it was time for soccer evaluations for the Fall season.
August was the most exciting month of 2014. It was a busy month full of birthdays, and new beginnings. We started off celebrating Uncle Lee's birthday.
We spent the last couple days of summer soaking in the fun and sun.
Lynda and LD came to visit and we got together with lots of cousins at Uncle Pete's house. It's always a fun time there.
Hudson started his first day of kindergarten.
Sadly, Dave's grandfather passed away and we went down to Florida. It was bittersweet as we enjoyed being with his family and Hudson had fun with his cousins. Dave's grandfather was such an influential man who contributed so much in his time here on Earth. There was a wonderful celebration of his life.
Fall soccer season started back up. Hudson had a great coach and team.
My baby turned five! 5...so hard to believe!!! We celebrated in style with a DAWGS themed birthday party at a local gym.
Go DAWGS!!! Georgia's football season started which meant that we were occupied watching the games every Saturday.
We were busy with soccer in September.
Brantley turned 2 and had a fun construction themed party.
Hudson had school pictures made. They were so cute. He looks so grown up. Can you tell who he looks like? That's me in kindergarten and H.
We enjoyed celebrating Fall by going to pumpkin patches, and the local dairy farm with our friends. My kindergartener was enjoying school and learning so much. His class went on their first field trip and the highlight was riding on the school's bus.
He decided that he wanted to ditch the training wheels.
Mom, Hudson, and I made a trip down to south Georgia for my sweet friend Laura's gorgeous wedding. It was fun showing Hudson all of that "south Georgia snow".
Pumpkin carving and Halloween provided us more opportunities to hang out with great friends.
David Perdue elected! Yay!
Hudson's first ever trip to the county fair
We had some unseasonably warm weather, so we took advantage of every minute of it!
Hudson's first Ga game with great friends...such a fun experience
fun Thanksgiving party at school, and we were excited to celebrate this year at Uncle Lee's new house
our Christmas tree and singing at church
December was filled with all things Christmas. We visited with friends on Boxing Day and Hudson and I went to Athens after Christmas to visit with my friend, Jeanna who was home visiting her parents. We had a great 2014!
