Thanksgiving Feast - November 25, 2009

Ken was lucky enough to be able to go to Adam's Thanksgiving Feast at his new school. He loves his new school and has such a good time. In typical Adam fashion, he wouldn't wear his hat like everyone else. :-)

Polar Express - November 20, 2009

I think riding a train to the North Pole has quickly become a Baumhoff family tradition. In fact, we rode the very first ride of the season this year. We had so much fun. Even Andrew enjoyed it until Santa came around. When Santa appeared, he was done and didn't want any more to do with him. Adam on the other hand was a real champ. He sat in Santa's lap and told him exactly what he wanted. We've started to realize that this may be the year that Andrew will not have anything to do with Santa. Oh well!

If you are in the Chattanooga area and haven't done this ride on the Tennessee Valley Railroad you really are missing a treat. We love it and so do the boys!

Brothers - November 1, 2009

I love how much the boys are enjoying each other these days. There is an occasional disagreement when they want to play with the same thing, but it isn't anything that we can't handle. I love to hear them laughing and chasing each other. It is so much fun around our house these days.

Halloween 2009

October 30th was the boys last day at their new school. After Andrew being bitten multiple times we decided to move them back to Primrose. This was their last day at Discovery Point. Ken went for their Halloween party and the boys had a great time.

You would never know the boys moved schools. Adam and Andrew are so happy at their new school and not once have they asked about the old school. It really is quite interesting. They've just fallen back into the routine. We are so happy back at Primrose. We have very happy children who love being at school and are so happy when we pick them up. It really is a night and day difference.

It was a tough decision to move them to a different school, but in the long run we know that it was the right decision.

Petit Creek Farms - October 28, 2009

One of Adam's last activities before he changed schools, was going on a field trip to Petit Creek Farms. It's in Catersville which isn't too far from our house, but we had never been there. Luckily Ken was able to go with him. I think they both had a great time. It is such a neat place. I loved looking at the photos.

University of Alabama Homecoming - October 17, 2009

We had a great time at homecoming this year. Ken marched in the alumni band and they had a lot of people on the field. Hopefully one of these days they'll have more than are in the band. It's been a great year for Alabama football so far and we've had a great time watching and going to games. Homecoming is one of our favorites. I can't wait to take the boys one of these days!

Disney on Ice - October 15, 2009

I decided that Adam was old enough for us to have a date night. So, we decided to go to Disney on Ice at Phillips Arena. We had such a great time! I actually went ahead and paid for VIP seats and we were on the very front row, on the ice. Adam was so cute watching everything. He was a perfect little boy and I couldn't have asked for him to behave any better. I was a little nervous about taking him downtown all by myself, but we had a really good time. Of course, I'm such a big Disney fan that I think I had as much fun as he did!

Adam in Cherub Choir - October 11, 2009

Adam is singing in the Cherub Choir this year. I love it! I'm not so sure he does. Their first performance was on October 11th. I can't wait to see their Christmas performance. He is so cute and does such a good job, but he says all the people in the congregation scare him. I can understand that! :-)

Pumpkin Patch - October 9, 2009

One of my favorite things about our church is all the truly fun things they do. Each year we love going to the pumpkin patch. We've been going since Adam was little. This year he's big enough to help carry the pumpkin! :-) One day Adam started saying he wanted to go to the Pumpkin Patch and while we weren't exactly dressed for photos, we sure did have a great time!

Chic-fil-A Kickoff Classic - September 5, 2009

We were lucky enough for Alabama to play in Atlanta again for their opening game. Our seats this year were high in the Georgia Dome, but you could see the entire field and that was kind of neat. After we got to our seats, I never moved again. :-) It was pretty high up and steep. It was a great game and Alabama won! What a great way to start the season. We love Saturday's in the fall and college football.

Sips and Strokes - August 14, 2009

I had a great opportunity to meet up with one of my friends to go to Sips and Strokes. I'm really not sure painting is my thing, but it was a lot of fun. Christy and I have been friends for a very long time. We went to camp together, were pen pals for years, both of us have United Methodist preachers for fathers, and have kept in touch for years. It was so much fun to hang out with her and catch up. I've promised it won't be another 10+ years before we get together again.

First Day of School & Daddy's Birthday - August 10, 2009

The boys started their first day of school on August 10th at their new school. Even though I couldn't get them both to smile at the camera at the same time, it was a good day. We started with pancakes for breakfast and then off to school! It was also Daddy's birthday so we celebrated with chocolate cake that night!!

Editorial Note: The boys have now switched schools, more to come on that later. :-)

Sophie's Birthday Party - August 3, 2009

Adam had a great time at his Sophie's birthday party. It was at Monkey Joe's and he got to play with all of his church friends. He came home talking about what a great party it was. I love all of his sweet little friends!!

Rome Braves - July 30, 2009

This year for work we sponsored a billboard in the outfield at the Rome Braves stadium. As part of the sponsorship, we had the opportunity to have a suite one night at a game. Due to really bad weather during the day, the only people that went were Ken, the kids and me. But we had a great time!! I hated that my colleagues at work missed it, but it sure was fun. We think we'll be headed up to Rome to watch a few more baseball games.

Enjoy the photos!
