We were fortunate to be able to go to Knoxville this past weekend to visit with friends and take the boys to a UT football game. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip! Here are the highlights...
This is what Callie did to entertain herself while she was NOT sleeping on the way there & back! ha! She slept a total of 30 minutes during the 6-hr drive there, and 1 hour on the way back. I have to give her credit, though... there was no fussing in the van :)
At the KC parking garage where Daddy used to work... Knoxville has invested a lot in revitalizing its downtown area and it looks fantastic!
On the curb waiting for the band to come down the hill... They were a little late, and the boys got restless waiting, but they had great "seats" when the band finally arrived. The drum section stopped right in front of us and the boys were mesmerized!
A view of the river behind the stadium...
Enjoying the pre-game activities and watching the football game...
During halftime, we took a little break to go find "treats". Here's what's left of the ice treats on our tongues... :)
The boys by the 2nd overtime...
They really were great throughout the whole game. We had excellent seats, and we were across the stadium from the jumbo-tron, so we could see re-plays well, too. Cade informed those around us that he "used to be a football player when he was a grown-up." ha! And when we told Hudson that the game was going into overtime he said, "But I can't take another whole game!" So funny!
David was our "guide" for the day at the game, and he & Carol were kind enough to let us stay at their house for the weekend, too. THANKS SO MUCH!
After the game, Wayne & Jennifer and their girls invited us & other friends over to visit. THANK YOU!!! We had a fun-filled day... Here are the boys within 5 minutes of leaving their house that night... sacked out!

At 12 months...

Callie is a busy, happy girl!
She weighs 19.5 lb and is 29 inches tall.
She has discovered her climbing ability... scales the stairs in a heartbeat :), steps up into the refrigerator, and climbs into the kids' size chairs. She has also discovered her appetite... as long as food is on the table, she wants to keep eating! She sneaks in independent steps, but really doesn't want to let go & walk on her own yet :)
Callie has the sweetest smile and gives the best "lovin"!
We all love you, baby girl!
-Daddy, Mommy, and big brothers, too :)

3 in the bathtub!

Could she be any happier in the big bathtub with her brothers?!

Enjoying new gifts

For a little girl who really needed nothing, she got a lot of cute, fun, "girl stuff" for her birthday. She really did enjoy opening & discovering all of it! Here are a few snapshots of our fun :)

No, not a posed picture...just one I happen to catch, but oh so cute!
Her first sip of "tea" from her tea set... ha!
Testing out the baby doll's "food"...
She really did not know what to think of this bath toy... "I think it's pretty neat, but ???"
Callie also got some adorable outfits & PJ's :)
Thanks everyone!!

It's party day!

WOAH! What a 1st birthday party!
Family, a little chaos & a lot of noise, some presents & some cake
ALL make for a very happy birthday girl!
These 3 were so sweet playing together in Callie's closet :)
Yummmm... birthday cake!
She needed a good washing off after she devoured her cake :)
Still having fun even after the crew was gone :)

"Jesus said, 'Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.'" Matthew 19:14

Baseball is here again!

Fall baseball is here! This is supposed to be more of a "learning league" so Cade-o is getting to play with big brother! Daddy is coaching (which has been somewhat of a challenge he! he!), and Mommy & Callie are cheering from the stands!

How she spent the day...

Good morning, birthday girl! Mommy & Daddy greeted you in your bed with a birthday song today. After brothers got off to school, it was bathtime for Callie!
...then we read a few books before nap.
More pictures?! :)
Let's call Daisy & watch her outside!
Before bedtime, a little playtime with brothers...
You've had a super birthday, Callie Jewel! We love you!
