We still love the 'stros

Well, all the World Series HOOPLA is officially over! I'm really pretty sad about it! I was hoping that the Astros would have done a little better than they win was all I was asking that SO much!! :) Reid and Troy have been a little sad but they are still Astros fans...that's all that counts, right??

Last week our neighbor came over and asked Troy if him and Reid wanted to go to game 3 of the World Series. (are you kidding me??) He told Troy that he had bought them for some clients and it fell through and he wanted to give them to us....can you believe that? I wish I would have had my video camera out to film the expressions on the boys faces! I don't know who was more excited. We never in a million years thought they could ever go to the World Series! Reid had asked if he could go but when we told him how much the ticket were he understood why we couldn't! I was sad because I couldn't go so I kept asking Reid if he was sure he wanted Daddy to take him and not me....he WAS sure! :) Anyway, the rest of the week were smiles and cheers about getting to go the game. When Tuesday arrived Reid said he thought school would never be over! He was so anxious about getting to go. I guess they left around 4:30 but before they left I took their picture like it was the first day of school. They held their tickets up and everything! It was cute...haha I told Troy to make sure he took pictures of them when they got to the park. I'll have to try to post them later. He did a really good job taking pictures and even filming a little. He is definitely a scrapbookers husband! :) I have to get Ashley to help me post the pictures because I haven't figured that out yet! :)

So, they left for the game and that is just the BEGINNNING of a crazy night :) After they left Macy and I decided to stay outside an play. It was a beautiful first! I guess about 30 minutes went by and my friend Lacie called. We were talking and she asked if we wanted to come over. As I was talking to her I went to my front door to go get my purse and the door was locked. WE WERE LOCKED OUT! Of all the days to be locked out of the house. I called Troy and he was just getting to the field. He couldn't come home and bring me the keys because for one he just paid $30.00 to park (can you believe that) and second they would miss all the fun stuff at the beginning and Reid put his foot down about that said we could just stay outside! :) Well, my sweet friend Lacie came to pick us up and take us to her house. She had to feed us and everything. I had no purse no cell phone no money......nothing......just the clothes on my back (and Macy's) plus it was cold outside! :) I'm just glad I didn't leave supper cooking on the stove!! I just happened to have my house phone outside and then it went dead. It was not my day let me tell you! So I just thought I'd be at her house till about 11:30 or 12:00....NO that would have been too easy. Only the Astros could make this game last till 2 in the morning! So, by the time Reid and Troy came to get me and Macy it was about 2:45 in the morning and we were all exhausted. Needless to say Reid missed school on Wednesday and we all slept off our crazy day. We will never forget Game 3 of the 2005 World Series...for more reasons than one.

I am, though, so thankful to my sweet neighbors for making my sweet boys so happy and helping them make a memory that will last a lifetime! They will talk about this for many many years to come. I am also so blessed that they love each other so much and enjoy doing father/ son things. They are definitely two peas in a pod and I love them both very much! :)

A sign that your child has been watching too much Mary Poppins.....

*I told Macy to go pick up her toys and while she thought I wasn't looking she started snapping her fingers like her toys were just gonna jump in the toy box on their own. SO FUNNY!

*She dances like a penguin.

*She HAD to have an umbrella at Wal-Mart yesterday.

*She told me that medicine is really good.

*She often wears a hat around the house.

*She likes to use the chalk on the sidewalk like Bert

The girl keeps me laughing.
