Last Northcutt Family of 3 Event

*I posted some hospital pictures on my facebook page, so check that out if you want to see some pictures of our new baby boy!  Otherwise, I’ll blog post them when we get home from the hospital.**

Babe’s Chicken…if you’ve never been, GO!!!  The best “down home” meal ever.  The original started out in Roanoke and only offered 2 main entrees – fried chicken or chicken fried steak.  They’ve since opened up a few other restaurants in the area, and there’s one in Frisco.  They have also added choices to their menu, but the premise is still the same –order your meat and then the sides are served family style.  Fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, creamed corn and biscuits with honey – YUM!  We went there a few days before Reid was born, and so we repeated the tradition this year the night before we had to go to the hospital.  There were a few more to our group – Matt, me, Reid, Matt’s parents, my parents, my sisters and my grandparents – but the food was as delish as ever!  One of those “heart-attack-on-a-plate” meals that you rarely have but when you do, it just hits the spot!

I've GOT to visit Babe's if I'm ever in town again! Every time one of you mentions it, my mouth waters! Meredith, Reid's "picture-face" makes me laugh out loud every time I see it - what a HAM!! He's very consistent with the squinty eyes and plastered grin. Cracks me UP!!

I hope yall are settling right in with new baby Jace - can't wait to hear and see more about life with 2boys!

Cute post, and you & your sisters are too cute together!
