Holiday's and Long Weekends.

This long weekend was wonderful. I hated to see it end.

Wednesday I worked till lunch then I got to spend the rest of the afternoon with my sister, my niece, and my nephew it was wonderful.

Then on Thursday morning we went to Dustin's cousins house in Huntsville which is about an hour and a half away from our house. We had a great time. Landon was loving having everyones attention but they had a dog and Landon was afaid of it. We ate a ton of food and looked at the Black Friday ads till it was time to come back home. My niece Hannah spent the night with us so we could get up early and go shopping.

Well we didn't get up to early we left home about 6. After we made a quick stop at Starbucks for a Peppermint Mocha we went to Belk, then we tried to go to Best Buy but the line was still out the door so we skip that, and then we went to Target. I didn't get to much I really didn't need anything most of my shopping was already done. I ended up getting some movies and that was it. After our shopping it was time to come home and watch The Iron Bowl (the biggest game in the state of Alabama). It was a stressful game but we won in the end. I think that we were to focused on Florida and Auburn had be focusing on us all year. But all that matters is what is on the scorebored at the end of the game.

Saturday my sister, my niece, Landon, and me went to the Apple store to try to get my sisters Ipod fixed. Then we saw Santa out infront of Belk so we had to stop and get Landon's picture taken with him. This was the first time Landon had gotten his picture with Santa he was so little last Christmas that we never took him. I thought that be might cry but he did so good and Santa even gave him some cookies. Then Saturday night we had an appointment to get his Christmas pictures taken but thank goodness we called and they had a
cancellation because it took us over 2 hours to get in and out of there. But they turned out so good.

Then yesterday we went and took the plunge and switch from AT&T to Verizon. I hope we like them better than AT&T. We also helped Granna put up her Christmas decorations. Landon was a great helper.

I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday.

First and foremost I am thankful for Jesus without him not else would matter. I am also thankful for my family, that I have a job to go to everyday, my health, a education, and a hometo live in to just name a few. There are so many things that I am thankful for. I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving day.

Christmas Card Picture

Last night I tried to take some pictures of Landon for our Christmas cards He wasn't so cooperative but I managed to get a few. Here is where I need your help because I am competely unable to make a decision on my own. I am going to post a few of the goods ones that I got and if you would like to pick the one that you like the best or tell me if you think I should just try to take them again. Your input would be great. It's really hard to take pictures of a 14 month old sitting still, looking at the camera, and smiling.












Thank You!

A Case Of The Mondays

Today I have had a case of the "Monday's" everything was fine until I got to work. I started my computer and everything was still fine but all of the sudden I got a warning message on my computer and then it was all down hill from there. It turns out that I had 3 virus' on my computer. It took over 2 hours to fix. This is what I had to look at all morning.



On a better note. I went to see New Moon on Friday night and it was Amazing. I am ready to see it again and my sister won season tickets to next years Alabama games (more on that later). I have to go get some work done now I have just been sitting here for the past two hours with nothing to do because without the computer I am useless.

It's Up

Don't get me wrong I love Thanksgiving it is one of the best holidays. Good food and spending time with my family. I love it. But I aslo love Christmas all the lights, sounds, smells, just everything about it. So this past weekend we put up our tree. Next week will be supper busy so we just went ahead and did it. Here she is:

(My Little Black Dress Tree)


We have had this tree forever but after Christmas I am getting a new one. Yeah!!

Last year Landon was only 3 months old at Christmas and he didn't even really know that we had a tree. So we were curious as to what he would think when it went up. Well it went up and he is scared of it. He loves the lights and ornaments but hates the tree. So funny.




Yes I already have some presents wrapped and under the tree. Now lets see how long they stay there before Landon finds them.



As you can see he also already has a full stocking but there are a few more things I am wanting to put in there. I am picking up the last few of his presents today.



I have been listening to Christmas music for a week and yesterday I had my first (of many) Peppermint Mocha's from Starbucks.
Is anyone else in the Christmas spirit?

Chattanooga Weekend.

We had a wonderful weekend in Chattanooga. We left around lunchtime on Saturday and the whole way there we saw these beautiful trees.



This picture does not even do them justice. They were gorgeous.
We got to Dustin's cousins house and just relaxed and watched football
We were so ready for the Bama game.

Landon even wore his new "I watch Alabama Football with my Mommy shirt" (He wouldn't let me get a picture of the front of it.) We beat Miss. State 31-3. Roll Tide.

Then on Sunday, it was Dustin's birthday, we went and ate breakfast at one of my favorite places





After we ate our yummy breakfast we went to the Tennessee Aquarium.


Landon wasn't so sure about it. He was kind of scared of the big fish.




Here is Landon beside the shell of the worlds largest turtle. (he looks so interested doesn't he?)




Penguins! They were so cute.


Don't really know why but I thought this was neat. It is called Brain Coral because it resembles the folds of the brain.


Jelly Fish are so neat.

We had a great time and Dustin had a wonderful birthday. Also on the way home from TN I won $60 on scratch offs. Woo Hoo.

I hope everyone had a great weekend. I know we sure did.

He's Messy But Cute.

Landon loves to open drawers and "clean them out".



He will pull everything he can get his hands on out.



I hate cleaning up the huge mess that he usually makes.




But he is so darn cute that I could never be mad.




Happy Friday Everyone. Do you have a little mess maker drawer cleaner?

So Random

Today is a pretty busy day for me. I have tons for work to do and I have to work through lunch because I have a doctors appointment.. So here are some random things I have got going on.
  • I am so ready for the Holidays. I can't wait to spend time with my family and eat some yummy food.
  • My sister, brother in law, and neice are leaving in the morning going on a cruise. Lucky! They will not be back until next Saturday. I hope they have a great time and a safe trip.
  • I have a doctors appointment today. It was supposed to have been on Monday but when I go there they had rescheduled and sent a letter to our old address so therefore I had no clue but luckily I work at the same hospital so I didn't go out of my way or anything.
  • I am almost done with my Christmas shopping. I only have a few more things to get. Yeah!!
  • I am so excited I made a 110 out of 100 on my muscle lab exam. I have another test on Saturday though. I have got to start studying for that.
  • Dustin's Birthday is Sunday. He will be 26.
  • We are going to Chattanooga for the weekend.

Wordless Wednesday...The Man Before My Men.

Yes there was another "man" before my two men entered my life (Dustin and Landon).

My cousin Lake. He may not be my only "man" anymore
but he will always have a special place in my heart
