10 Days Until Rebel Football

The count down has been going on for a while, but I am so excited I cannot contain myself! Poor Matt has a test week starting on Tuesday so he will not be going to the game, but I am! I will be riding with the Richardson's and my parents! What a group. I am also trying to talk CJ and Corey to go too (they are back together, praise God!!).

Now that Matt and I are officially season ticket holders we will probably be at ALL the home games. When we calculated the fact that we might pay $50 a ticket from a scalper, season tickets seemed like the best option. Not to mention the way Matt's test schedule works out he can go to ALL the home games!

Go checkout my friends website. Next to the blog it is the best website on the world wide web!!

Auntie Eldy's Trip To Houston (Again)

First of all Elle would like to think Nash for naming her aunt Aunite Eldy. She thinks it fits and she will use it too if he does not mind!
I went to Houston for a second time this summer to see little Elle AND see the girls too, except for QD and we missed her (she had to work and if her job was not so noble I would insert a "boo!!" here, but I am going to refrain). We had a great weekend catching up and playing dress up with Elle! She is so sweet and now that she has her new pink and sparkly hearing aids, it's a new world to her! She loved all the attention we gave her and let us know when she was not receiving enough attention. I left Houston reminded of how truly blessed I am to have such great friends. Even with a baby in the mix it does not really change anything about our friendship. We still act just as goofy as ever, but just stop occasionally for feedings and dirty diapers. Lisha's blog is more eloquent than mine about our blessings, but I never have been mushy... Any way here are some of the pictures from the weekend! Enjoy!
How cute is she? Auntie Meghan got her this outfit, because the poor child had nothing else to wear. She is just like a doll we all get to dress up. When she grows up and spends all her parents money on clothes we'll all claim is was not our fault! She loves it when her aunts come to town!

This is after we dropped Meghan off at the airport on Sunday. Notice that none of us are wearing make-up. Was it b/c we had a wild night of partying the night before? Uh, no. We had a wild night of eating key lime pie at 2:00 a.m. So when Meghan woke us up at 8:00 to go to the airport we were not feeling too sporty! Our late nights have changed a little bit and I would not change it for the world.
Saturday after our shopping adventures. We were all wearing such muted clothing?
This Elle's feed me face. She was anticipating her mama feeding her some more rice cereal! She loves it!
And this would be the sleeping face!

Are You Kidding Me Smalls?

This article is about Glenn Beck of whom is one of my least favorite Fox News anchors, but he is being singled out for making an Obama comment. Advertisers such as Wal-Mart, CVS, Clorox and Sprint are asking that their advertising not be run during his show, but I don’t hear that same thing being asked of The View. They are so slanted and make unfounded comments about the right so why have these companies not asked the same thing of ABC? I may not like Glenn Beck (he’s too liberal), but this is crazy! I can live without all of those advertisers. Kroger and Walgreens here I come! Get real people, it is an opinion show.

More Summer Fun

Both of my parents, and two of my cousins have birthdays in December. That sounds lilke a great reason to throw a party and if you know anything about my family it's not a party unless my Uncle Doug sings Rocky Top. As you can tell by the pictures a good time was had by all and we danced the night away. I tried to take many more pictures, but my camera battery was dead.

Even the pups had a blast!

The very next weekend we went to Pickwick, again my camera battery was dead so this was the only picture I got. I am hoping someone can send me there pics

Please Come Back Ronald

I usually post fun weekend trip pictures and updates about what Matt and I have been doing, but today I am fed up with liberals and HAVE to vent about it. From the time I was a child and thought Ronald Reagan was my boyfriend I have had an interest in politics. Now that health care is the hot topic I have even more to say since my husband will be DIRECTLY effected if this socialized (yes, it's socialized John. Don't try to tell me it's not) medicine bill is passed. I am not going to focus on the enormous amount of money (that we don't have to spend) it will cost or even the fact that Obama said "this country was not built on complaining (but the last time I checked America was built on capitalism not socialism), but today I am going to focus on the fact that liberals have NO ability to reason what so ever. I mean they are like 3 year olds (no offense to 3 year olds).

Here is what I am talking about - This health care bill will allow the government to dictate the care you will be allowed to receive from your doctor. In other words the government will dictate what you do with your body. OK that's clear enough, right? Here is what I do NOT understand, how they support "a women's right to choose" or what is really killing an innocent child. They have claimed that they do not believe in making abortion illegal because the government does not have the right to tell a women what she can and cannot do with her body. WAIT....... Did everyone get that? You can kill an innocent baby because it's not the governments place to tell you what you can do with your body, but they might deny my grandmother surgery because she is 80?? That makes absolutely NO sense what so ever.

Since our president has asked that anyone that speaks out against this health care plan be turned over to a watch dog agency please feel free to turn me over! I am not sure about Washington D.C., but I live in America where we are built on freedom and capitalism.

Thanks Katie!

I am SO glad I have creative friends! If it were not for them I would be so bland. Katie not only updates my blog wall paper (because I cannot figure it out), but she also takes my pics and makes them look wonderful! Maybe one day I can take pics half as good as her! Thanks Katie Rose!
