Are You Ready For Some Football?

Cade is! Tonight the always popular Monday Night Football game is here in Nashville, and the COLTS will be in town. For the record, this is the one game of the season where we do not cheer for the Titans (actually, I think Heath still does, but Cade and I love Peyton too much:). In honor of tonight's matchup, this is what Cade had on for school today. He calls it his "Pate" shirt. Heath and I got this jersey for him when we went to a wedding near Indianapolis last summer:

Touchdown Colts!

Thorne, Party of Four

At least that is what we will be saying early next June:)! We are very excited to be getting ready for baby #2, and know that our house will be wild next summer with a two year old and a newborn. Here is Baby Thorne as seen at just over 7 weeks (even though right now it looks more like a little butter bean than a baby:). We are so excited to be having another baby, and thrilled that Cade is going to be a big brother!

A few more of my favorites!

I received my CD from the photographer yesterday. It had over 200 pictures on it! I don't know how I will choose which ones to put in my house- maybe one of each:) Here were some other ones I liked (as you can tell, Mr. Cade was in a really good mood that day!):

Pumpkin Patch 2008

Even though it was a little too warm for the occasion, we took Cade to pick pumpkins on Saturday. There is a really neat farm in Mount Juliet that grows pumpkins. During the month of October, the farm becomes "Pumpkin Hill," where they have hayrides, farm animals, and of course, pumpkin picking! Cade had a lot of fun this year, and especially enjoyed when the hayride went right throught the cow pasture. Cows were literally within reach. He also picked his own "Cade-sized" pumpkin. Now we are just ready and waiting for the fall weather!

18 Month Photos

Cade had his 18 month pictures made this morning. We used a new photographer who was recommended to us by my friend Chesley. I am thrilled with the preview, which you can see by clicking here:
I love her contemporary style, and plan to go back! The only downfall: Cade looks so big to me in these pictures!:(


Debate '08- Live from Nash Vegas!

As many of you know, Nashville will be in the spotlight tonight for something other than country music: the second Presidential Debate! The debate will be held at Belmont University, which is, coincidentally, only two blocks from Heath's office. Cade and I were actually downtown today for his 18 month pictures (bad planning on my part!), and you could just feel the excitement in the air. John McCain and Cindy flew in on the "Straight Talk Express" last night, and we later learned that the "Maverick" was staying just a few blocks from the Panera Bread we ate lunch at on Vandy's campus. No sightings for us, though:( No matter which candidate you are cheering for, tune in tonight (8 p.m. CST) to watch the debate live from the Belmont Curb Center (also home of the CMT Video Music Awards). Here are some pics from around town (taken from Belmont's debate website- I am not exclusive enough to get on campus today!).
