Taking Down #1 Teams Like It's Our Job... USC vs. Vandy Baseball Game

Today, Craig and I went to the USC vs. Vanderbilt baseball game.  They were ranked #1, and we were #3.  South Carolina won Friday night and lost Saturday, so we were hoping they would pull out the win on Sunday to win the series.  So far this year, Craig and I have seen three #1 teams play.  We saw Carolina beat Alabama in football, Auburn kill South Carolina in the SEC championship game :( (stupid Tigers or War Eagle, whatever you are!), and of course, we saw South Carolina beat Vanderbilt in baseball.  We are 2-1 for games where we have seen South Carolina play a #1 team this year.  Anyway, the game was fun, we won, and I got a little sunburnt.. :)

When we got home, the game was re-playing on ESPNU, so we watched the first part to see if we happened to see ourselves.... One of the first plays of the game, they zoomed on our section because the ball was hit our way, and you can see Craig standing with his white backwards hat and red shirt...

Kennedy and Kayleigh's Baby Shower

Today, Ashley, Kim, and myself hosted a baby shower for Kennedy and Kayleigh.  We had been planning it for at least two months.  We were constantly buying decorations, presents, talking about different food to have, etc.  Well the day finally came, and I think it went really well.  Everyone loved the decorations and the food.  We had cheese dip, cheesy pull aparts (biscuits with melted cheese cubes inside), vegetables, fruit, pinwheels, mini hotdogs, Chick-Fil-A nuggets, and a chocolate fountain with strawberries, pink marshmallows and angel food cake.  Not to mention a bunch of Tastefully Simple cookies and brownies, cupcakes, and chocolate molds!
After everyone ate, we played a couple of games.  The first game, everyone had to take as much toilet paper that they thought would wrap around Kennedy's stomach without having too much or too little.  The second game was the dirty diaper game.  We melted four different types of candy bars into different diapers, and everyone had to write down their candy bar guesses for each diaper.  One person got all four right.  For both games, the winners got candles that looked like chocolate. 

After the games, Kennedy opened all of the presents.  She got A LOT of presents.  I gave her a dress, hair band, baby beanie hats, baby body wash, block letters to put in her room, and some pictures I had taken of her and Drew.

Kim gave her a diaper cake with many daily use baby supplies built into it.
Ashley gave her a monogrammed diaper bag with many other things inside.  She also gave her a piggy bank so that she could start saving for college... haha

We had some leftover diapers, so we had everyone write a message on them so that when Kennedy and Drew are changing them, they will have something funny to read... here are a few of them..

Overall, everything went great!  It was a lot of planning, cooking, decorating, but it was fun and well worth it!  I am glad everyone enjoyed themselves!  Us at the end of the day... :)

yeah, it was windy...
