Well, our Thanksgiving plans had included attending the Egg Bowl Game at State while we were in Mississippi. However, the rain had other plans, and my family decided to watch the game in their warm, dry houses instead of in a wet, rainy stadium. Since we were all decked out in our maroon and white to cheer on the Dawgs, I just had to get a family picture.
Always, always smiling and content
Getting a kiss from Big Brother Mac
Yeah, I also couldn't resist putting him in the matching hat just for a picture!
Someone sitting near us saw the spectacle of trying to take our own pic and offered to take one for us...much better :)
Frosty the Snowman show. See Mac near the bottom, just to the left of center?? All the kids got to go sit on the stage for part of the show. It was a hit!
Very first taste of anything other than a bottle
Not real sure about that...
He doesn't mind a messy mouth :)
Well, I think he likes it!
The other night Drew was acting very interested in our food while we were eating dinner. We have recently noticed that he watches every little thing that we put in our mouths and moves his mouth around while watching. So the other night when he started squealing while the rest of us were eating, we decided to try out some baby cereal. And I'm pretty sure he liked it! Our pediatrician recommends food at six months, so since we are almost at that mark, we will just let him try it out every now and then. My baby boy is growing too fast!!!!

Mac was hoping I wouldn't catch him licking all of the icing off the house! haha
The boys figuring out how to assemble the house :)
Digging into that icing again!
My boy Mac LOVES sweets, so the gingerbread house was a huge success!! We had a fun time and many thanks for the person who brilliantly decided to package and sell kits! Our gingerbread house is now on proud display as the centerpiece of our dining table. Mac can, and does, admire and talk about his great work everyday. I'm glad to add this as a fun Taylor Christmas Tradition!

Last weekend Sam and I had the privilege to narrate a Community Christmas Program held at our church. I really enjoy doing things like that, and it was fun doing it alongside Sam. I just hope everyone could focus on the message of our words and not our Southern accent! LOL The boys were troopers spending consecutive nights in the nursery :) Of course I couldn't resist the opportunity to take a family picture!

(one of our play group friends we started playing with when Mac was around 6 months old. We missed you, Adam Koonce!)
On September 30, Mac turned 2, and we had his much anticipated Veggie Tales Party. Mac really had no idea what a Veggie Tales party, or any party for that matter, was going to be like, but the boy was so excited since it was Veggie Tales! He woke up every day for about a week asking if it was his "Veggie Tales Partaaayy." And he would draw the word "party" out real long and say the whole thing excitedly and loud :) So when the big day came, we were all excited!
I was so thrilled that we happened to be in Mississippi that week, so we were able to have the party in Monticello with all of our dear friends. We had it at the Family Life Center at MBC, and the kids had a blast running around the gym, playing balls, and chasing each other. And Sam and I had a great time catching up with our friends from church. It seemed to live up to Mac's expectations was truly a great, fun night celebrating our sweet 2 year old boy.
Now, let me just say that I know I am 2 months behind on this post...and I feel so terrible, but we've had some busy months with the boys and lots of road time to Mississippi. I cannot believe Mac is already two! It is truly just a pure joy to spend each and every day with him watching him grow and become a wonderful big boy. He keeps me and Sam laughing and melts my heart with his sweet, sensitive personality :) What a blessing the Lord bestowed upon us two years ago...and we look forward to many, many, many more years to come!!!
