It's Official

I cannot wrap presents. I learned from the best, but my gifts still look like a 3 year old did the wrapping. Oh well its what inside that counts, right???

Date night with Daddy and Mommy

We have decided that we are going to start a tradition to take Savvy out on a date for the Holidays every year! We started the night with Savvy and I getting ready together. I curled her hair for the first time (and was tearing up while I was doing it) and she loved it. She is so girly, she loves to watch me put on make up and do my hair. She talked me into letting her wear lipstick. We decided on a gloss, which looked FABULOUS, as she put it! Michael picked us up in the bedroom and we headed to J Alexanders. She chose a delicious hamburger. We then went to the Orpheum and saw Cirque Holidaze and it was wonderful! The costumes were gorgeous, there was singing and then all the acrobats of Cirque, it was right up her alley! We didn't get home until 11 and she was out! What a fantastic memory

New Moon!

We went to the midnight showing of New Moon Thursday night. Candice picked me up around 7 and after a few stops we were at the theatre at 9 and there was already a line! We were seated at 11:30 then the show started at 12:01. It was so good!! We loved it and had such a fun night!

Candice and I. T-minus 5 minutes!

Go Tigers Go

Can I just say I love where I work! One of the reasons is that EVERYONE loves Tiger basketball. For the last two years they have been writing poems for every game, dressing in blue for every game and of course there is a tiger Christmas tree every year. Our main poet in the group mailed some of the poems to Coach Josh Pastner. The next week Coach himself called her and said he wanted to meet us! He came today, even though they had a game tonight, and thanked us, signed basketballs and took pictures. He was everything he is cracked up to be!!! And we were completely star struck. After he left I called Michael and he asked "is he so dreamy?" and the answer is YES!

I really don't like the pic of me, but here you go

Thursday at the kids preschool they had a Halloween parade, that never fails to make me tear up! I know it's ridiculous but something about seeing kids dressed up and so excited always brings out my quivering lip!

Saturday morning we took the kids to Shelby Forrest and walked the bicycle path. It was beautiful and the kids inherited Michael's love for the outdoors. That night we went to Uncle Tim's and Aunt Suzie's and had a bon fire and Aunt Suzie told a 'scary' story. It was a lot of fun. We left there and headed over to Michael's grandmothers and great aunts. Then home so the kids knocked on two doors for tricker treating...I was more upset about them not having more candy than they were
