November 6, John Webster and Alyssa began courting, just three days before her birthday!
First they took a walk along the river boardwalk at IJAMS nature center, where John gave Alyssa roses and a beautiful necklace.
They ate a brief lunch on the porch at Rafferty’s, then headed for Rock City in Chattanooga, TN.
The weather couldn’t have been better, the scenery more beautiful, nor the couple any happier!!

Night on the Town

IMG_2796    Chad couldn’t make it to Tennessee to see Erin for Valentine’s Day, so he sent 3 dozen roses and a poem that he wrote, “101 Reasons I Love Erin!” 
   But better late than never, he was able to join us for a belated “I Love You” / Valentine’s Day date night in March. Dad, Mom, Alyssa, and John Webster all tagged along, enjoying a night on the town together!… Making memories!!

“I Love You” Day, 2013

“I Love You” Day, 2013

by KELLY on MARCH 20, 2013

    Our last yearcallie’s “I Love You” Day celebration was a formal dress up occasion (obviously voted on by the girls in the family!)
     This year, the boys got to pick, and of course, it was a jean affair with hamburgers on the grill!
     We kept the names that were drawn for the gift exchange anonymous… well, at least we tried! Some of the siblings squeaked, but we had a really good time together… and that’s what it’s all about, saying, “I love you” in a special kinda way!!
