Well, in case you didn't already know, I have a new toy. For quite a while I've wanted a Jeep Wrangler. I'd say I've had this itch for around 10 years. I'm not sure what it was that made me love them so much. I've known a few people who had them and decided they were cool.
Here's a close up of my new little Jeep fans. They love it just like their momma.

Bonding begins. Kelsey gave up and plopped down so Grace could give her a good brush down. She decided this wasn't such a bad idea after all.
Next up: My New Jeep! Stay tuned.

Next up is a quick picture of us and our dear friend Ms. Chanda (as my girls call her). Brad and Chanda Tomlin are precious friends of ours that we met while in Tuscaloosa. They were there for us in so many ways and we have tons of memories together. You might not believe this but as much as we LOVE the Tomlins, Chanda is one of the BIGGEST Bama fans you will meet. And we were really tight friends. Seriously!!
Anyway, Mr. Brad and Ms. Chanda are expecting their first sweet baby girl in just the next few weeks!! This pic was from her baby shower in Tuscaloosa. CP and I trekked down there for the event. It was so special to see Chanda and all our Ttown buddies that we miss so very much.
We can't wait to meet sweet little Miss Henley Tomlin once she arrives.
And finally, I went with some work buddies to Sips N Strokes on Monday night. I'd heard all about this experience but never been to one. This location was on Hwy 280 and once we FOUND it we had a blast. Just for anyone out there that might try to venture out to this particular location - "Sips N Strokes" is NOT on the outside of the building. We did NOT know this bit of information so needless to say we were LATE! The instructor even nick-named us the Slackers in the Back. Ha! Anyway, I do recommend this adventure to any girls (or guys willing) out there that need a night out! I noticed lots of friends, moms and daughters and of coarse co-workers. So, above is my masterpiece. It turned out pretty good considering all the laughter and giggling that was going on in our little corner of the room!!

Let me preface with this - My girls have kinda pack peddled on their fear of storms lately since we have had so many come through our area. Therefore, Maggie does not like us to watch the weather or even the News for that matter these days. And she lets us know it.
Mom was watching the "News" this morning and Maggie promptly tells her "I don't like watching that, it scares me!" She was referring to the weather particularly but with everything that's going on in and around our country these days I can't say I blame her. I'm a little scared too my little one!
Maybe it's a good time to be hitting our knees with some heartfelt prayers four the Good Ole - Red White and Blue. I think we need God on our side these days!!
Have a great day everyone!

PS-Also, you know I'm a music lover and that I get from dad. So, my plan was to put some of daddy's favorite bands on my music player for today.

Me- "What's wrong with my Maggie?"
Maggie - (sobbing for affect) "My sisters hurt my feelings?"
Me- (Playing into the drama of it all)"Well which feeling did they hurt this time?"
Maggie- "The Second One!"
Did you know that feelings were numbered?? Me either, but they apparently are and they certainly are fragile around this house. Wonder which feeling will be the next casualty? Will it be the 3rd feeling or maybe the 1st one. Who knows!!?

Here is a picture of the Mountain of Pure Granite (the largest in the world I'm told) with it's amazing and magnificent carving of the Southern Generals on it. I would tell you who they are but I forgot. I do know the middle one is Robert E. Lee. You can't tell from this picture but that carving is very old and unbelievably large. It took the men that carved it a very long time to do it. It was going to have much more to it but it was never finished. Mom and I stood looking at it and wondering how people can look at such wonders and not believe in a God! I remember coming here when I was younger and being amazed by it then too! Its worth the trip just to see it.
Of coarse one of their most favorite things was the swimming pool. They probably only stayed 30 minutes or so but were tickled to get to "swim" for the first time this year. They were very brave little boogers too b/c they walked all the way down to the actual pool floor at 3 ft. That's a first for them. They were so proud and well and so was mommy even if it was a small feat.
Here's Nana and her Mags huggin on each other before the "Spectacular." The girls were so good waiting to see the show I must add. They say it starts at 7:30 but well it really doesn't start until the sun goes completely down.
girlies with their glow sticks right before the sun went down. They LOVED playing with their glowing little sticks of fun. Well worth the stop to the Dollar Store Nana made!
Well, that's all for now but I have more to post and more pictures from our trip. Stay tuned......
