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 did....one win was all I was asking for...is 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 day....at 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! :)

I've been waiting for this post! I'm so glad they got to go to the game... Your neighbor is an amazing man! That's so sweet...

Wish we were neighbors and then you could have just spent the night with me when you locked yourself out... That sounds like something I would do! :)

Love you!

I have been waiting to read about the game!!!! I am surprised I haven't locked myself out yet. I am just waiting for the day I go to the grocery store with no pants on...I thought baby brain would be gone after the baby came out!!!

Okay, I, too, have been waiting for the World Series post. It's about time! I would like to hear Macy's take on being locked out...did she love it? Tell us what Reid said about the game. I fell asleep about the 11th inning...sorry Reid. You are a good mom to let the boys go without you! WE love ya'll....

We looked for Reid on the TV screen all night...man if they wanted an excited kid to film, I don't know why they didn't find him...I hope you can get those pictures on there, I bet they are great! What a fun night for Troy and Reid, and what a nice neighbor you have!
