So Thanksgiving has come and gone. We had a great holiday. Brett and I were off work for most of the week. We cleaned the house and spent some time together as a family, which was nice. I must say Brett did most of the cleaning. I had to work Monday and when I got home he had cleaned the kitchen, laundry room and den areas. It was so nice to relax and not worry about cleaning. On Wednesday I took Alyssa to her "favorite" mall. For her birthday I promised her a new Build-A-Bear. So she made Snow Glow ~ a white polar bear. We had an awesome girls day.

Friday was our annual crazy shopping day. Toys-R-Us threw off our normal plans by opening at midnight instead of 4:00 like they have done in previous years. We all (me, my sisters, mom and aunt) met at the store around 3:30am. We were done and on to Target by 4:30am and to the mall by 6:00am. We shopped, and shopped. It was worth the good deals that we got. They were all done by 10:30am. But I wasn't. My sister, Laurie and I shopped some more, enjoyed an awesome lunch and I took her home around 3:00pm. But I knew that if I stopped then I would crash so I decided to make my way to Tanger. Home @ 6:00pm. So I shopped from 3:30am to 5:30pm. WOW!

Saturday was GAME Day. We had tickets to the GA-Ga TECH game . Brett gets extremely nervous... I mean sickly nervous and at the last minute opted to stay home because of his "bad feeling" about the game. But Trent, Jeff and I had fun, even though Brett was right and we lost. Trent was mortified walking into the stadium from the Varsity. Those DAWG fans were throwing boxes and candy NERDS to the Tech fans as they walked by. I thought it was very clever and funny, but poor Trent took it to heart taking his Tech hat off. It was a good game. I will save my nasty comments to myself.....

Veteran's Day @ RSE

On Friday Rock Spring celebrated Veterans Day. The fourth grade sang songs for the Rock Spring Veteran family. They were so good. There wasn't a dry eye in the room.

Afterwards a veteran talked to each class about what they did and what they saw. Here is a picture of Trent's class listening to the vets story.

Aunt Netta's

We took a trip to Blairsville last weekend. The weather couldn't have been more perfect!

The "Bent Tree" picture. It won't be too long and the cousins will be too big to fit in the tree. They are all growing up so fast!

Aunt Netta's house is just amazing!

We celebrated Alyssa and Aunt Helen's birthday!

To the daughter who I love.....

One day you will understand why you went to bed one hour early....

The scissors are not to cut a whole in your new pants "just because you wanted to."

ps. Great job on your report card, but lets work on "being a leader."

The teacher said that she will be a great leader one day..... that was her tactful way of saying that Alyssa is bossy. What? Not ALYSSA. lol.

To my son who I love....

One day you will understand why you just can't live with Uncle Stan. You can't live off of pizza and spaghetti.

ps. Awesome work on the Report Card.

To my husband.....

You can never, ever say another word about my driving... EVER>

Crazy Hair Day

Friday was crazy hair day at Alyssa's and Trent's school. Alyssa also had a field trip so she didn't to the crazy hair. I got alot of great pictures.
Here is a group of teachers. They love that "Something about Mary Look". I told them that it reminded me of the high school "claw"
Of course I had to participate in the fun. Although Trent didn't think it was funny. lol Don't you love my hat.
Here is a great picture of our administrators and front office staff. The principal is the one on the far left and the VP is the second to the right.
A great classic look from Trent. "Hi, Mom...... you need to leave...."
