Mollee turned 16, which is crazy, but it has been a good year and we are so excited to see the beauty lady she is becoming.
I went and ate lunch with her and she had received balloons from Uncle Daniel and Aunt Heather.
Her wish, instead of a party, was eating downtown with a few friends and hang out downtown and then have them sleepover.
So, Aubrey and Sarah Kate joined us for dinner.
And ice cream.
And time to hang out at the park.
Sunday we celebrated with her birthday buddy, Uncle JR.

I was a little nervous about the thought of raising teenagers. I did great with the toddlers, loved the 5 and 6 year olds, but I was nervous.
We have our problems, and I will not lie, we fight. But, I absolutely love, love, love being the mom of these crazy kids. Here we were waiting in the van for our photographer to show up for family photos - their forced gift to me for Christmas. I was trying to take a picture of their goofiness.
And Tavis was taking a selfie of me taking a selfie.
Mac isn't a teenager, but he acts like he thinks he is one - always in the mix.
A quick shot on the way out - next to the Blue Bull or Purple Rhino or, whatever it is.
We had the privilege of having Townes and Peter with us for Fall Break. Picked up Peter on Friday morning and we did Homecoming activities all together Friday. Saturday just played. Sunday was the Church Picnic. Monday and Tuesday - all fun!!
It was great! Townes and Mac never fought. Peter was awesome. I'm so glad we got to do it!

Books, books, and books.
Mac and Townes - 10 days apart

I was able to take the day off, hang out with Peter (who is staying with us during Fall Break) and go eat lunch with Mac and Townes (who is also staying with us during Fall Break).
I love the tradition that the HS football players come over to the Elementary field and eat lunch with the little guys. This year, they were handing out footballs and encouraging the little kids to have the football players sign them. So cute!
Tavis and Peter bonded and hung out much of the long weekend

I love a good rival. And, even tho I am sad that not all my boys say "Roll Tide", it is fun. Especially when my Crimson Tide continues to rule the SEC.
I emptied the dishwasher the other day, which I don't do often, and this made me smile. Variety!
