Gobble Gobble

Well I have recently been reprimanded by Caroline because I haven't updated my blog. I think I kinda kept waiting on something exciting to happen to blog about and then I realized ... we lead a pretty low key life these days.
However, I am just LOVING fall this year. FURTHERMORE, I'm loving hunting season this year. Every weekend Aaron, Ben, Dad, and Emerson leave to go hunting so all the girls camp out at Mom's. We make fun cocktails, girl food, and just do fun girly things (except for Holiday House, that was a disaster).
Yesterday was Thanksgiving and I must say it was one of my favorite Turkey Days in quite a while. Honestly, I've never really liked Thanksgiving before. It's true. I just thought it was such a man Holiday. All the women spend days slaving in the kitchen to talk the men into coming in from the woods or out from in front of the TV to eat food that I don't even particularly like ... sweet potatoes, oyster dressing, dry turkey, and so on. HOWEVER this year I loved everything we made and we had a laid back, family and fun-filled Thanksgiving. And even though both of my kiddos were sick, we still had a fun day! By 10:00 Avery came and grabbed my hand, dragging me into Mom and Dad's room. She pointed at the bed and started saying "nigh nigh." She folded her little hands under her head and closed her eyes ... this has never ever happened. I took her up, put her in her bed and she went right to sleep... crazy.
I did take Dalton to the doctor Wednesday and the child weighed 21 pounds ... Avery who is over a year older, weighs 25 pounds and is in the 75% for her age group ... Should I be concerned??
He also is not really acting all that interested in formula. I guess I'm going to have to persevere with the nursing, even though it's getting old. HOWEVER if he is teething, I'm done, WAY done.
Today is "Black Friday" and I am not leaving the house. Sarah Baker wanted us to go shopping- NO WAY JOSE. I can't imagine anything worse than taking these babies out in the double stroller with those crowds. Even though I wonder if people are really shopping as much this year...
I'm pretty sure it's 12:45 and I'm still in my PJs - is that horrible?
Aaron has gone to the grocery store to get the ingredients to make a "honey bun cake." I'm pretty sure it's a gluttonous sin to cook anything with the fridge being as jam-packed with left overs as it is, but he wants it. Apparently a lady brought one to his office the other day and he hasn't stopped talking about it in 3 days. His grandmother even called me today to ask for the recipe so she could try it herself. For anyone who's interested here is the recipe..... (I also have to add it's from which makes me laugh)


1 box yellow cake

4 eggs

8 ounces sour cream

2/3 cup vegetable oil

1 cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon cinnamon


1/2 cup powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 cup milk


Combine yellow cake mix, eggs, sour cream, and vegetable oil. Mix together and pour half in a 9x13 inch pan. Mix brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle over half of batter in pan. Pour rest of batter over brown sugar mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Topping: combine powdered sugar, vanilla and milk. While cake is warm poke holes in cake with toothpick. Pour topping over cake.

OK, so it looks like I'll be baking that today ... I'll let you know how it turns out. Well I guess I'll leave you with some pics of our fun Thanksgiving night ...

Oh but p.s.- Sunday my sisters, brother and I are getting baptized at our church ... YAY!! 9 am service in the worship center for all you Fellowshipians...

Ok I'm really signing out now ....

Nothing like Red Roosters on Thanksgiving ... quite the Davis tradition!

Mom and Rachel getting too excited about preparing the Feast.

My Memaw

So Mandy, if you're reading this you're going to have to explain the "tagging" thing to me. I saw where you tagged me, I just don't know how or what exactly you did ...
ANYWAY the point was to post the 4th picture in your 4th album ... here goes!


This is Avery at about 5 months-ish ... This is my mom's comp so it's the earliest on here. Isn't she a cutie?? This is actually one of my fav pics of her. I might have cheated a wee bit and this might have been the third, and not the fourth. (But the fourth looked just like this, only out of focus!)
Anyway ... Avery Elizabeth ... naked and happy about it!

"I'm a nut, I'm a nut, I'm crazy"

The title of my blog this morning is how my week has gone!! If it hasn't been one thing, It's been another! Whew, I'm just glad it's Saturday! I have felt a lot of anxiety the last couple days and just can't seem to get it together!! Yesterday I was just praying God would give me a verse and my heart led me to Psalms, and my eyes found Psalm 37. Here are some of the verses that hit me the hardest.

Psalm 37:34

Wait for the LORD and keep his way. He will exalt you to inherit the land;

Psalm 37:39-40

The salvation of the righteous comes from the LORD; he is their stronghold in time of trouble.
The LORD helps them and delivers them; he delivers them from the wicked and saves them, because they take refuge in him.

and just because I love these verses oh-so-much I'm including it too.

Lamentations 3:21-26

Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope:
Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed,

for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
I say to myself, "The LORD is my portion;

therefore I will wait for him."
The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him,

to the one who seeks him;
it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD.

I think I just have this mindset that it will be OK, because it has to be! I have been through tough weeks before and this week has just been frustrating, but it's over now and a new one is coming. I love the part of Lamentations 3 that says His mercies are new every morning. It is amazing to me how much better I feel every morning, no matter how crazy our night was the night before. Sometimes it seems like this season of life will only get crazier and never end but at the same time I love it to death!

SPEAKING OF WHICH ... This weekend is Dalton's baby dedication and I am pumped! I loved Avery's and I'm sure Dalton's will be just as precious!

Afterward, we're having a fried chicken dinner at our house for lunch ... just as every Sunday should be!! :)

Well, Sarah Baker is walking in and I have to give her hugs and kisses!!

Halloween and More.

Oh Lordy, Is anyone feeling as anxious as I am today??? I am overwhelmed with the election. I think after today I'm not turning FOX news on for at least 3 months. Eek. Today is actually our 2nd anniversary and we were going to go out, but now with both kids shipped off, we're just going to curl up on the couch, get some sushi and watch the election coverage. How romantic is that?!?! Especially when you throw in that Aaron and I represent different political parties ... Oh well!!
It doesn't help that SOMETHING is blooming outside, ragweed, or whatever and I have a THROBBING migraine. Ouch. It is pretty bad.
This weekend is Dalton's Baby Dedication and I am so excited!! Afterward the fam is coming over for lunch. I'm hoping to snag a Christmas Card pic since I didn't get one that will work during Halloween ... which reminds me I haven't put any pics on here yet!!

Here's a couple




In case you can't tell Avery is Cindy-Lou-Who and Dalton is Max the puppy dog from the Grinch!! I am a reindeer, and Aaron was gone hunting Bambi ... shocker!

All Men were gone hunting so Sarah Baker and I spent the weekend with Mom and we had so much fun! I couldn't love my family more!!
