Our Week in Review!

Wednesday, Will woke up with a fever and muscle aches and Francie complained about her ears and throat hurting, so Clint stayed home with them to take them to the doctor! They were both negative for flu and strep... or so they say! They next day I stayed home with them. It was a good break- I got some laundry done and we watched movies all day! Will's fever spiked on that night to 103.7 and stayed that way! The next day he stayed with my dad and I called the doctor to see if I needed to bring him back in! She said no don't bring him in- that he probably got checked for the flu too early and now there is nothing to do but to let it run its' course!! Poor Will!! He's done real well so far I just feel bad for him! I hate seeing him feel so bad! I just keep praying it passes fast and no one else gets it!

Thursday, while home with Will and Francie I reread Twilight for the fifth time!! I love that book... I don't think I'll ever get tired of it!! I love it so much!! I love the movie too, which I plan on watching tonight after all the football games!! I love all the characters and the town! It is so romantic!! Every time I reread the first book though, I have to read all of them again- so here we go!! I guess it's perfect timing, because the new movie will be coming out soon!! (62 more days) I can't wait!! If you haven't read these books I suggest you get on it!!

Friday, I got to go on Francie's first field trip!! Her class went to Build A Bear Workshop!! They were making their "class pet"! Each week the "star student" will get a turn taking him home for the weekend!! How sweet!! They ended up getting the snowy owl- very Harry Potter! They even got the round glasses for him!! It was so much fun!!

(I love the elephant and the kitty in the Alabama football and cheerleading uniforms- I want them!! Aren't they so cute!)

Today, football all the way baby!! We are having so much fun tailgating at home!! Today we made a home-made recipe for chicken fingers, ranch dip & fritos, and brownies!! Alabama won!! :) Right now I am a little sad Tennessee couldn't beat Florida (I don't love Tennessee or even like them but I am so tired of Florida- Tebow)!! Tonight Arkansas vs. Georgia!! Go Dawgs!! :)

Keep On Trucking- I mean DANCING!

Francie started dance class yesterday (pre-ballet and tap)!! She was so excited!! I think I'm just as excited! She looked absolutely adorable in her leotard and tights!! Her teacher is so nice and she met two new little friends!! I just hope we can keep taking and still be able to eat! ;) (It can be a bit costly!!)

I can remember taking dance when I was her age. I loved it!! I remember feeling extra special on the night of my recital- I can even remember parts of the dance!! I used to love to dress up in the costumes! I had a belly dancer costume and a clown costume I wore in my recitals! Later when I was in college Clint and I took dancing lessons at Fred Astaire! It was so much fun!! Dancing is good for the soul!

I love having a little girl! I love pink tights and ballet slippers and tutus and hair in buns and shiny tap shoes with ties! I cherish this time with her!! I'm looking forward to sharing these special times with her and giving her this experience!! I love to see her smile and her eyes light up!! She is a sweetie!!

Go Bama!!!

I was so excited Friday, Clint told me he had been given 2 tickets to the first home game for Alabama!! I had not been to a game in five years!! We had so much fun!! It was a wonderful day! I got my picture made with Big Al and in front of the Bear statue!! We couldn't get any closer because so many people were waiting in line! It was hotter than I had expected- but at least it didn't rain!! It was so nice to have some alone time with my Sweetie (it took me back in time -like when we dated- we would always take road trips- we listened to my old playlists that Clint had made me in college)-It was a perfect date!! Most importantly~ Alabama won!! GO BAMA!!

***The Giants played tonight and won too!! It was a great football weekend!***

Yay!! Alabama!!!

A few things on my heart:

1. I am very excited Clint finished his Master's in History!! It came this past week in the mail (proof that we did it)!! He worked so hard!! I love him so much and I think he is brilliant!! I know God has big plans for him!!

2. Hooray for Alabama!! The first game of the year was so exciting- I nearly passed out a couple of times during the game!! I am very proud of them for winning!! I love college football or really Alabama football!! We made red velvet cupcakes (red and white), ate barbeque, and just had so much fun!!

3. Long weekends aren't long enough!!

4. I am so happy that our small group has started back!! We met on Wednesday and I have to say I love it!! We missed last semester because of all of Clint's schooling- and it is good to be back!! All of our friends are just the best and I feel blessed to be part of the group!!

5. My class this year is precious!! I am grateful to have my job and I am enjoying this year so much, so far!! I pray it will continue!!
