Thanksgiving 2008

What a wonderful Holiday! We all have so much to be thankful for that sometimes I think we don't even know where to begin!! Despite the nasty weather our family had a great holiday and what a way to top it off with a big VICTORY over Auburn 36-0!!! Roll Tide!! Bring it on Gators!!

Wednesday night the George's stopped by our house on the way to the beach and I got to play with little Kensley for a while. She seems to be a very good baby. We sat in the floor almost the whole time playing with one of Joseph's toys! She is sweet. We don't get to see them enough. We didn't see Blair that night b/c she had plans to see her other side of the family that night. But we saw her later on at my mom's.

Thursday we ate lunch with Jason's parents and headed to Centreville. We were able to catch my Dad's family before they got away for a quick visit b/c they had all eaten at my mom's for lunch and we missed that.
Basically we bummed all weekend and visited family. Jason came home on Friday and Joseph and I stayed with my parents. The only shopping that took place was a Wal Mart run about 9:30 Friday night and some around town shopping on Saturday morning. Very low key! Mom and Dad celebrated their 33rd wedding anniversary on Friday. Sorry we broke up the fun - ha!!
All in all it was a good weekend and I can't complain about Thanksgiving 2008. Now back to grind....................................... And only 25 days to Christmas WOW!!

And the Tide Keeps Rolling!!

Jason and I went to the game this weekend and got to tailgate and hang out with friends all day and go to the game. It was extremely cold but we bundled up and braved it and had a really good time. And oh yeah the Tide keeps rolling. Below are some pictures from the game!

Our Musician!!

We are not quite sure where Joseph got his rythmn or where he got his love for playing music but he loves to sing and play his guitar! He sure didn't get it from us!! The other night I caught him in action while we were watching the CMA awards and just had to share with you guys!! He is a mess and I love him more and more each day!!

Finally..... Vegas Update

MGM Grand

So two weeks ago I went to Las Vegas with two co-workers for a class. We built in an extra day to site see and look around. I was amazed when I got there. The flight and time change about killed me the first day because I got up around 3 and didn't go to bed until about 1 there time. So needless to say I was dragging!! We walked alot and went into alot of the casinos. We actually stayed at MGM Grand and our class was at Ceaser's which was absolutely gorgeous. My other favorite was The Venetian which Jason told me I would like. We ate at the Rainforest Cafe for lunch in our hotel one day as well as Toby Keith's Bar and Grill which is in Harrah's. On Wednesday night we went to a really neat Japanese rest. in our hotel called Shabyu I think was how you spelled it. The food was great I had this tempura battered shrimp which was amazing. We also ate at Hard Rock Cafe and a Mexican place in New York New York. One night we just grabbed Pizza in NY, NY which was really good. The highlight for me was that on Wednesday night, Gail and I attended the Elton John concert. He was AMAZING!! I will definitely go back and see him again sometime. I lost a whopping $60 bucks. We went downtown to the old Freeport Street one night which was cool and went up in the Stratosphere. Also, on our free day we went to the wax museum. THis was really cool!! It was a great trip. Very tiring and I missed my boys really bad! By Friday, I was ready to come home. Below are some picture from the trip!!

UA Homecoming 2008

This weekend was homecoming in Tuscaloosa. We decided that we would "attempt" to take Joseph to his first ever Alabama game. So we went to my parents Friday night. Papa was on a golf trip but we enjoyed visiting with Mom. Joseph also got to see Kensley and Blair and spend a little time with them. We miss not getting to see them very much. Saturday morning we got up and got ready and headed to T-Town. We met up with the Carter's on the quad before the game and walked to the game with them. Our tailgate plans didn't quite pan out as we would have liked them to but it is hard with a two year old in tow. Joseph did extremely well and loved the game. We had another family sitting beside us that had a 6 or 7 year old little girl and they sat there and entertained each other! Jason said as long as we were feeding him we were good - ha! Just kidding. He cheered and yelled and shook his shaker. We left with about 10 minutes to go in the 4th quarter only because we thought it would be easier with him to get out a little early. We never leave the game early! After about 2 minutes in the car Joseph was alseep. Didn't even wake up when we stopped back by Mom's and slept until we got almost to Greenville. For his first experience he did great and we all had a great time. It was so much fun to see the excitement in his eyes. Who would have thought that 10 years ago when Jason and I were sitting in the stands as students that 10 years later we would be bringing our child! So much fun and so many more fun times to come.

Oh and Roll Tide!! We are #1!!

I leave for Vegas this week so say a prayer for my boys!!
