On our way to see Hannah! We were so excited!
Macy was so excited to see Hannah come on stage.
She was singing and dancing all night. It was so cute!
Mom and Macy enjoying our evening together!
Our seats were so high....Hannah looked like she was about an inch tall!
But we didn't even care. We had fun laughing, dancing, singing, eating a 5.00 bowl of ice
cream and sharing a 12.00 pizza and drink! HA!
She just knew that Hannah was going to come
to our seats for a personal photo shoot! She even
asked me when we were going to go meet her.
I tell you, this little girl can sing!
Macy and I had a blast. I felt like a kid again. HA!

Happy Easter

Hope everyone had a wonderful day. We did....we got up, hunted eggs, checked our Easter baskets for all the goodies that the bunny left, put on our new spring outfits and ran out the door to church. We missed Troy because he had to work but we did bring some Easter lunch from Chilis. yum! It wasn't Nana's roast but its the best I could do. :) After we ate lunch we went back to the church with some friends and let the kids hunt easter eggs. They had so much fun. It was a beautiful day to be outside. I love this time of year. I love new dresses for the kids. I love my son in a tie. I love white sandals. I love candy. I love bunnies. I love family. I love friends. I love flowers. I love Easter baskets and all that crazy grass that gets evertwhere. But most of all I love my Savior and the fact that he died for ME and YOU and then rose again to give us eternal life. Praise Him....

Macy finding eggs filled with candy!

Reid did hunt eggs but don't tell anyone! I am sad because it was probably
his last year to care about year I'll just give him a bag of candy.

My sweetie pies...ready for church.

Macy had to leave a note for the bunny just in case he needed some help on where to put the eggs. She likes to know whats going on. Before bed she hopped up and said, "I have to leave him a note to make sure that he hides them in the house." HA! That surprised me. I thought for sure whe would want them outside so the bunny wouldn't come in. :)

Dying the was a fun mess! We did miss my family this year. It was the first
year we weren't in Smithville to dye eggs. It was neat to be at home but so weird.
We missed everyone so much!
Macy's masterpiece!

Quick shopping trip with my sister to Katy Mills and to see the ever so popular bunny!
Here's "hopping" that your Easter was fantastic!

Load 'em up....Oh, my we had so much to do on Friday. We wanted to fit as much in as we could and let me tell you....we did! Here are our ever so cute bags, that do by the way, get a lot of attention. It didn't help that we had on pink boas. But thats besides the point. ha!

Our first stop...the fun and ever so interesting trolley ride. If you read my friends Lacie, Holly and Kim's blog you will see alot of our feet. We documented every step we took. People looked at us like we were crazy. But again...we don't care. Deep down, they liked our idea and as soon as we left I'm almost posivite they copied us! ha!

Here are Lacie and I ready to take off. Don't we look cute! We had such a fun time. There was alot of neat places to see and learn about. Our first trolley guide was ok but about half way through we had to potty so we got off and took a break. When we loaded the trolley again we got a GREAT trolley tour guide. He was a hoot and Kim thought he looked like Clay Aiken. And he did! If that gives you any idea of the kind of ride we had. He had us in stiches.

Kim and Holly looking ever so cute! We were all so ready to get this show on the road. We had alot of Savannah to see....

When our tummy's started growling we decided to hit Mrs. Wilkes. We weren't too sure about it since we had never heard of the place. And we had to wait in line for almost an hour. But we heard it was so good so we thought, hey we made it all the way here we might as well try it. And boy are we glad we did. It was my favorite and the girls too, I'm almost certian. Hands down it was probably the best food I ever ate. Just the atmosphere was enough to make me want to pack my bags and move right in. So cozy and everyone was so sweet. We even got to meet Marcia, Mrs. Wilkes grand-daughter. She runs the place now. Oh, and the sweet

Here we are waiting in line for an hour. What else are we going to do but take pictures of our shadows. ha! I love this picture. It wasn't too long after this picture that we realized we might not make it Paula Deens for supper because we didn't make reservations. So, I called and you couldn't make them over the phone. The only slot they had left was a 8:45. So what else can four girls do??? Well, two of them took off running (in the wrong direction...for a minute) to get us a slot. The other 2 held our place in line. Mind you, they ran for 15 minutes there and 15 minutes back. Kim and Lacie ran their little feet off to get us slots for Paula! Thanks girls! I wish I could have followed them with my camera. You girls rock! Me and Holly, well we just prayed they made it back in time to eat at Mrs. Wilkes......we didn't want to eat without them. HA! They made it in plenty of time!

Here we are at Paulas! Another fun foot picture. Aren't our tired feet cute?? Remember this is 9:00 at night! And we have walked and toured Savannah all day....

I thought since I ate such a BIG lunch at Mrs. Wilkes I'd eat a light dinner. Well, forget that. I ordered a Chicken pot pie....look at how big that sucker is. It was so good. We had such a fun time a Paula's resturant. It was so neat to be there. We just knew she would be there and would invite us to her show! You know...we'd be BFF's. ha! No such luck. I don't think she ever is at her resturant....that's what the waiter said. Anyway, Paula or no Paula....we had a fun time.

more to come!

Savannah...a week later (part 1)

A week ago today I had just done this! Can you believe it? I hate flying, but with the coaxing of my best buds....I loaded the plane. Scared and all. I'm sure they thought I was nuts but I was scared, really scared! And then they sat me by the window....go figure! LOL! But, it was all worth it for a girls weekend! A fun and much needed time away. I love my kids and hubby but it was nice to have my mommy hat off for a few days.

It was all worth it because then, I ended up boas and all:

SAVANNAH, GEORGIA! WOW! It was such a beautiful town. Full of history, shopping, great food, tour bus rides, ghost tours and one really bad house tour.....maybe more on that later. The first night we ate The Olde Pink was so cool. And to make it even better the lady sat us in the pink room! How fitting. And the food was so yummy. We all ate stuff that we wouldn't normally eat. And pay prices that we wouldn't normally pay! I had a yummy tilapia.....

After dinner and our crazy day of flying and driving two hours to Savannah, we decided to call it a day. We went back to the hotel to plan our next day. We had SO much to do. We thought it would be best to get into something a little more comfy! HA! Slippers......the best! We all slept like logs....until the 6:30 wake up call. :)

to be continued.....
