Happy Thanksgiving!

We spent Thanksgiving Day with Clint's family in Montgomery. We had a great time visiting with family and eating yummy food. On Friday, I got up way too early to do some Black Friday shopping. Nana and the girls baked up and decorated some Christmas cookies. Clint went to the Iron Bowl with his dad and Clay. Auburn almost pulled out a win, but we are proud of how hard they played. WAR EAGLE!! Thank you for a great trip!

Family Picture Time :)

Ready for the Big Game!

Friday night, Uncle Clay and Aunt Julie came over to visit. The girls had fun playing with Uncle Clay. As Josie said, "He is the best uncle ever!" :)

New Member of the Benson Family

As of today, we officially have six members in the Benson Family! A beautiful Golden Retriever joined our family. The girls have been asking for one for almost two years and we have been putting it off, but when we found out about this precious boy today we couldn't pass up the offer. So, Clint drove to Polk County, TN and picked him up and we surprised the girls with him! They love him and he loves them! He doesn't have a name just yet because we can't seem to agree on one, but Josie is pushing for Annie. She pointed out to "Annie" that the garage was his new home and she pointed to the inside of the house and said, "This is our home." So sweet! Here is a couple of pictures and I'm sure there will be more to come!



Look at that face! :)

Three Little Witches

The Benson girls had fun dressing up like witches for Halloween this year. We had fun trunk-or-treating at church and trick-or-treating in the neighborhood. They got WAY too much candy and I think that some of the leftovers may be going in the prize box at school!

Ready to go trunk-or-treating!

First Winning Season in Sixteen Years!!

We are sad that high school football season has come to an end. We enjoyed so much watching Tanner play, whether they won or not. The atmosphere of Friday night football is the greatest! We are so proud that he helped lead Southeast to their first winning season in 16 years!! Way to go Raiders and WAY TO GO MCCUTCHEN!!!

Anna Grace's Birthday at Nana and Paw Paw's

A few weeks ago, we celebrated Anna Grace's birthday in Montgomery. We had a great visit filled with food, fun, and football! Nana cooked all of Anna Grace's favorites...spaghetti, pizza, and lasagna. YUMMY!!

Crazy Braxton trying to make Anna Grace laugh! :)
